Craft night resumes tomorrow night (wed.) at the Dino House. Thanks to everyone who came out to see the show in our living room! Everyone who played was just beautiful. I'll have some REAL pictures up in a few weeks.

The Brown feels a little green right now. Let's hope nothing happens before tomorrow night.

love,

Bourbon Girls, Chris Denny [Oct. 5th, 2006|07:31 pm]

[music |'eddie walker' - ben folds five stuck in my head for 2 days]

Craft Night was in competition last night, not only with the season premieres of Project Runway and Lost, but with a tremendously attended Delicious show. Let's talk four people compared to probably 100-- damn, boys! The Bourbon Girls were ace, the first performance since losing legendary front-woman of Pity Sing/Woods Afire, Meredith Martin-Moats. The group made a few self-derogatory comments about being minus a lead singer, but to tell the truth it seemed more like a group of performers than it ever has. All the girls who usually stood in the back each got a chance to come forward. Lots of stomping, hand-clapping, and light vulgarity. Good job.

Chris Denny was marvelous. "Marvelous" should be said long and with emphasis, perhaps one reading this sentence should also open their eyes widely for a moment and punctuate with lip-licking. A gyrater on par with Elvis, Chris Denny was a cross between the King, Roy Orbison, and everything I ever saw in a young, stupid guitar player when I was 14 and didn't know any better. Damn, damn, damn, was that a steamy show. The drummer, bless his heart, had the most fantastic expression the whole time, like a man watching a woman take off her clothes. But more specifically, the moment after she unlatches the back clasp of her bra, and before the tits are seen, as the material goes slack across her breasts and she breathes out, wondering what is to come.

Last Monday night, we fed the five boys of Fake Problems from Naples, Florida.





They were really polite, and helped rid us of our apple problem. They played the Gypsy and were not treated very well (two weeks in a row this happens!). The Gypsy has some problems. Anyhow, listen to them if you're interested.

Craft night (9/27/06) was great. We had friggin' Joel, and friggin' eight people there! Thanks to Kelsey, Alison, Ed, Joel, Anne, Jordan, and Vanessa. Here are some pictures:Read more...Collapse )The Tulsa Trip= no BBBBQ


This has nothing to do with going to Tulsa, or anything. It was written on the back of a septic pump truck. It made me happy on the way to work.

Vegetarian spring rolls (that is not really shrimp)


A girl named Nikki wood's Cupcake Girls. She sort of new Justin. I asked her if she knew who Wayne Thibaud. Of course she did (I've never been an art student). She got her Masters in Ceramic Arts at TU, so I was interested. Alison likes the cupcake theme, and Thibaud does, and so I do. If you are interested in these things, email n2redclay@yahoo.com.

I am sorry! I did not mean to post that Craft Night was last night, Monday. It is on Wednesday, always Wednesday! I am thankful to people for calling before coming over and freaking me out in my pajamas.

Craft Night = Wednesday

For all of you circular-knitting phobics, Anne has found another winter project that even the most novice knit/crocheter can handle. A message from the woman herself:

Hey craft nighters -

I just wanted to let everyone know about another charity program very similar to Knitting for Noggins - Warm Up America. Warm Up America asks for 7x9 knitted or crochet rectangles, which can then be joined into an afghan and given to someone in need. You know how nice that special blanket is to curl up with on a cold day? That's the feeling that this helps spread. If you're not a knitter or crocheter, and the Knitting for Noggins hat patterns seem a little too intimidating, then you might think about doing this. It's extremely easy and very good practice with a fun new skill, minus all the weird circle stuff that hats involve. Warm Up America takes individual sections, as well as joined pieces - meaning that if enough people want to do this, we could make a full sized blanket that really would be a gift from all of us to someone who needs it.

http://www.warmupamerica.org/whatIsWUA.html

I can't knit, but I'm decent with crochet. If you're interested in learning let me know, and I'd be more than happy to show you how to do it

thanks,
anne.



So, if you've been nervous about those crazy hat patterns and that's prevented you from coming, you can just do rectangles. And if you're not interested in these projects, work on whatever you want.

Wednesday!

As you can see, Joel finally finished the scarf he'd been crocheting Since Craft Night Began. It was too long to get in one shot. Joel Bunch has what the girls want-- crafting skills.

We also got three hats made, and more to come. Here are some pics:

Variant on Lamb Hat by Edward


Green Bear Hat by Amy



We're looking for new members, or just people who want to participate in Knitting for Noggins. We're ready to teach people to knit or crochet, so come on down on Wednesday nights at 7:30 at the Dino House. ACH is trying for 10,000 hats, so we've only got 9,997 to go.

a few things, yar [Sep. 19th, 2006|01:59 pm]

1. Today is National Talk like a Pirate Day.

2. Today, I was paid to research a request a patron had for A Parent's Guide to Preventing Homosexuality. Yeah, good luck on that. On a different slant, check out Biological Exuberance, about the great variety of muff-diving, pillow-biting, same-sex love in God's own animal kingdom. Biological imperative, my ass!

3. Good news on the craft front! Anyone interested in making wee hats for children in place of buying more crappy gifts for your relatives, Knitting for Noggins is on! And great news-- we are not limited to the five patterns shown. So, any pattern you have for a tiny head will do. My goal is two hats per person. Craft Night meets again tomorrow night (Wednesday) at 7:30 PM at the Dinosaur House. Also, check 'er out: Craft Night on Myspace!

How to Draw Comics


A patron brought this book to the front, wanting us to know it had been defaced. WW gives it to me, commenting how terrible it is, which I responded to with a laugh. When you're giving horny teenagers comics how-to books where the women are never wearing shirts and who have bodies completely out of proportion with reality, why be surprised when they respond with gratuitous cock scribbling?
