vintage boots for sale

I bought these boots off Etsy a bit ago, but they're a little too small. They're sized a 9, but fit more like an 8.5. In great vintage condition. $40 + shipping. Comment if interested!

things you find

225 days under grass
and you know more than I.
they have long taken your blood,
you are a dry stick in a basket.
is this how it works?
in this room
the hours of love
still make shadows.

when you left
you took almost
I kneel in the nights
before tigers
that will not let me be.

what you were
will not happen again.
the tigers have found me
and I do not care.

- “For Jane” by Charles Bukowski


I stumbled across this fantastic Etsy shop today. Megan Auman sells wonderful reusable coffee cozies that double as cutie wrist cuffs. Love em! And they're only 25 bucks. Visit her shop for lots of different colors!

99 bottles of beer on the wall

This was my submission for the 99 Bottles show at the Skatepark of Tampa this past Thursday. The show was rad! Most of the bottles sold and $1500 was raised for Boards for Bros. Success!

markets for fleas.

we found a great old flea market in Clearwater to check out this weekend. It was jampacked with antiques and fabulous oddities. Here are some of my very best scores.

I got two of these books for 10 bucks a piece. They are full of captioned photos, handwritten bits, paper clippings, etc. I love them so so much.

The photographer was quite the comedian! Most of the captions are very funny.

I also scored a big stack of random photos for $10. Most of color, but that stack on top are all black and whites from the 20's. I plan to use all these photos in an upcoming art project.

Two baggies full of old keys. 4 bucks!

I love this little bullie friend. He has a hole in his back I believe to put a candle in. $1.00

Bag full of bunnies! .50

I have a big weak spot for any and all things dinosaur. Bronto glass: one buck!

I will definitely be frequenting this flea market more often!

Dear random man talking to me through the slat in our fence,

Three things, sir.

One, as you can see, and hear, my 3 dogs are not too fond of random old men peering through little missing pieces of our fence.

Two, you seem completely oblivious to the fact that your small cat (or Baby Kitty as you are referring to her right now) is clawing her way over your shoulder. This cat clearly does not like the 3 dogs who are going berserk as we chat here. Nor do these 3 dogs like your Baby Kitty. Maybe you should remove her from the area. And yourself please.

Three, you are not Wilson and I am not a Tool Man. This is weird.

Scram man.

A neighbor just trying to throw some ball with her pups.

PS. I mean, they're vicious.

Dear person driving in front of me,

Thank you for driving such a beat up pile of shit car that you did not mind when I, completely not paying attention as usual, did not realize that you had applied your brakes and nearly joined you in your backseat. Thanks for smiling and waving "no worries" out your window as I tapped into the back end of your car and felt like a dumbshit. That was pretty cool of you.

Another loser on a cell phone causing car accidents.

Dear makers of this oatmeal,

I see why you call it Weight Control: because it tastes like such garbage you immediately lose your appetite.

I'm on to you.
