all you gotta do is one (v funny) stencil and youve got the

news

instagramming your possible return to a big city?

thats genius if you ask me.

i had a few very nice conversations over beers last night.

i had some very nice phone conversations minus beers today.

one was held over skype which is still a miracle to me.

my text message machine was interesting as always.

one gentleman is a photographer on a brand of movie set

he takes the most beautiful photos, for free, because you too would take those pictures for free.

then a girl in rollerskates rolled into my courtyard and over the steps and onto my porch

and knock knock knocked on the door and i was startled because i wasnt expecting visitors

and i opened the door and she said

are you listening to that new elvis costello and the roots?

and the jewels of her necklace just led to the one spot a gentleman is not supposed to

stare at, but for one, random question, lady

and two, what was the question?

she said its called Wise Up Ghost

the cover looks like Howl

it’s on the legendary Blue Note Records

and its a groovy chilled out stroll through R&B in a darker way than Get Happy

but if you’re tired of the americana of National Ransom and that other one, then

Wise Up Ghost

and the earth split in two and she fell into the crack and i shut the door and went back to sitting in the dark

not on the album:

dear tony, Green or Pink?

im not sure exactly how i continue to be given these assignments.

my personal fashion choices usually revolve around: what is clean, what is most wrinkly,

and what goes best with a Cubs hat.

but strangely the most beautiful women ask my advice on what they should wear

even though my first response is usually haminahaminahamina.

me personally i dont think men should ever tell women what to put on their body or what to do with their body

if anything we should just be happy that this isnt a planet filled with men.

these two looks by Sass bring home that point beautifully.

although they are both very playful and young, i feel like the pink one wouldn’t be complete without a curved staff.

the green one is a touch more subtle but still adorbs.

because im a scientist at heart id like to see that one with the cream socks, but again, who am i to wonder.

forgive me.

anyways, the green, to me is more welcoming, the pink is too bright a light, it’s the star trek phaser on stun.

if you have outfits you’d like me to choose between email them to me at
