" '...sweeps clean.' Mister Kidd..."

"Acts of Surprising Philanthropy" Dept.;

As hoisted from the blog of my deary dearest velocityboy:

The first six people to respond to this post will get something made by me. It will be about or tailored to those six who respond first.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. (Although let me know if you have any allergies)
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a mix tape. It may be a short work of fiction, or a poem. I may draw or paint something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you!

I like this one a lot. Me please!
24th-Jan-2009 07:08 pm (UTC) - That's One!

Yes indeed!

I have a pretty good idea what I want to make you already, so that's half the battle won.

I'm not up for it, but I hate you for bringing up the gay assassins.
24th-Jan-2009 07:06 pm (UTC)

I was just feeling silly - my apologies for dropping them back in the grey matter that way.

Worse -- I mentioned this to Charles, who just bought KOTOR II, and his character is now named Wynt Kidde.

Hey, as Star Wars names go, it's not so bad...
24th-Jan-2009 10:44 pm (UTC)

Actually, that's a better Star Wars name that Lucas can muster on his own these days.

I sincerely hope he looks like Crispin Glover's father, Bruce, crossed with Han Solo.
24th-Jan-2009 10:46 pm (UTC)
Alas, no. He looks kind of like a well-groomed Jesus.
24th-Jan-2009 10:48 pm (UTC)

Bruce Glover looked like a pudgy asshole kinda Jesus as "Feldman, the Annoying Wheelchair Guy" in GHOST WORLD... It works.

I always loved Feldman in Eightball comics...

I've been overworked and awfully tired, and I'm barely making ends meet.

Apart from that, I'm pretty good.

Ah, Monsieur Joe!

Vous are much too kind! I am honored to receive whatever kindnesss vous may wish to bestow!


27th-Jan-2009 04:25 pm (UTC) - Mais, Vraiment...

What kind of bête would I have to be to refuse so jolie and radiant a stereotype Française come vous?

Dearest Pops,

I was thinking of you when I made my puppy post. While I do enjoy your cute fuzzy kittens, I thought my puppies were a good way to tip my hat to you while maintaining my own vanity and showing myself off. :) Hope you don't mind the "tweak", but I did credit you in my comments.

Really this comment is to tell you I've noticed the scarcity of your posts and am worried that perhaps you are getting buried under some comics and need to call an ambulance (I kid!). Muffy does not like to worry about you pops, remember to take a break and check out the sunshine every once and a while. :) Are you well? Have you busted out your sled dogs and igloo for the obnoxious American tourists?
31st-Jan-2009 04:30 pm (UTC)

Muffy -

I am honoured by the tweak. I'm also deeply pleased that you made it something of your own.

I am working through a slushpile of work right noiw, but I am very very ready to start presenting more of the sorts of posts I used to have up here.

I am so very happy I've gotten to know you out here.
