What People Are Saying About Penny

"I like to think of you as a high priced call girl that the unwashed masses can't afford--like Woody Allen's Whore of Mensa. It's not your fault that people offer $10 blowjobs on the street corner. It's not an insult if somebody doesn't buy your art." -Alexandra J Walters

"Once Penny was making her own silk thread, and a midget appeared. Before he could open his ugly mouth, without looking up, she exclaimed, 'Rumpelstiltskin. Now get the fuck out of here.' Fairytale Over."- Beth Featherstone

"Penny can push a needle through a telephone pole without a thimble." -Shane Blaufuss

"When a man asked Penny, 'What’s the meaning of life?' She looked at him for exactly 3 minutes, completely still, until he cried. That man’s name was Steve Jobs."- Beth Featherstone

"A demon from the pits of bitch cunt." -W.C. Hurst

Django Finished!

Django Reinhardt Postage Stamp Shirt
Finally! This guy was starting to hurt my feelings because of all the satin stitch. Django measures 8"x10" and was commissioned by Joe Butcher. Who is Joe Butcher? I'm glad you asked.

Wowza. Yeah, he's pretty handsome, and a tall drink of water, and an amazing musician.
If you're an old school NYC hardcore fan, you'd recognize his 80's band Ludichrist.
If you're a Texan, you've seen him in Pleasant Grove. If you haven't spent the last several years under a rock, you'd recognize him playing pedal steel in Polyphonic Spree.
And if you live in the DFW area, it would be in your best interest to start stalking The King Bucks.
Yeah, It's a little shakey cam, but that's because everyone's crazy dancing.
I know hipsters, "Blar Blar country music, blar." You know what I say to that? Don't be an ignorant asshole.
If in the span of this post we can go from Ludichrist being vilified by Hells Bells: The Dangers of Rock 'N' Roll to the cheery choir cult sound of Polyphonic Spree, you can wash the stupid out of your ears and check out The King Bucks.
They're amazing, and I'm homesick for the honky tonk.
*Also, if you're wondering, "How do I get a shirt, apron, pillowcase with my face, dog, favorite actor embroidered on it?" All you need to do is contact me, and we'll work it out.

  4. Thanks everyone! I love this piece almost as much as I love the man it's being sent to! Seriously, I'd stalk him if we weren't already friends. Is that weird?
