Guard your butts, people! Today's Mail Order Interview is with buttlovin', uber talented illustraor Penelope Gazin. Penelope's work is 50% pretty/50% grotesque, which means it's 100% amazing.
Adding to Penelope's street cred is the fact that she works for Fox's ADHD (Animation Domination High-Def) where she makes sweet animated gifs of Miley Cyrus' twerking butt, burger butts, witches butts and pretty much every kind of butt imaginable.
Penelope also plays a mini drumset in a band called Sadwich. The band was started by Penelope and her roommate Natalie James. The duo pump out the catchy, girly rock songs like it's their job. Check them out on SoundCloud: Sadwich.
Want a piece of Penelope? Duh! Who doesn't! Check her out on Etsy! Penelope Meatloaf
Okay guys. We all know that hot dogs can go one of two ways - seriously amazing or seriously disgusting. Since becoming a vegetarian four years ago, I have searched far and wide for a respectable veggie dog that weighs on the amazing side, but I have always found myself disappointed. The dogs I've tried wind up rubbery or weird smelling or gray or non-edible or even... shiny. I had pretty much given up my hopes of ever finding a respectable veggie dog when I arrived in Sedona, Arizona on a recent trip, but my gut told me that I should give it one more shot. A quick smart phone search landed me at the front door of Simon's Hot Dogs smack dab in the center of the southwest's spiritual mecca. With a 4.5 star rating on yelp, I knew that it was gonna be sweet hot doggy heaven! As I walked in the door, I found myself greeted by friendly faces and a drool-worthly menu.
Felipe (the man with the great smile pictured above) was super helpful and told me all about Simon's vegetarian and vegan options. Simon's has the most amazing menu and caters to all diets (meat eaters included... so don't think this is one of those veggie joints that poo poos carnivores). I opted for the vegan Hola Amigo. Ermahgerd! It was DELICIOUS.
In fact, it was so good that I ordered two more... ERMAHGERD! Don't tell anyone. But wait! This place gets even better because... it's attached to A BREWERY! I know! Oak Creek Brewery to be exact. An amazing hot dog and a tasty brew in beautiful Sedona, Arizona?! COME ON PEOPLE! It just doesn't get better than that.
Exciting news! Drum West, an experimental film by Jim Henson, was recently discovered and posted online by The Henson Company. After recently learning that Jim and Jane Henson lived in my home town of Greenwich, Connecitcut with their children from 1964 to 1971 and that Jim shot two of his experiemental films there - Time Piece and Run, Run - I must say that I'm absolutely hooked on Jim's more experimental work.
Here are a few of Jim's experimental films!
