The semi-sad beginning of the end....

As our tenure on this continent draws to a close we will soon be bidding farewell to our swell, creativity-inducing ceramic facility expertly ran by Mr. William Shultz.

Thanks Boss.

It just seemed right to end on a piece featuring our favorite subject matter - Good 'Ole Scratch - The Walking Dude - The Great Somebody

MUSIC - MP3 - 4You - "Noise (is what they do)"

"Aorta" (Ison, Holtek)

if you don't like this there'll be plenty more where it came from shortly (sorry)


With friends like these who needs enemas?

Unpeg my pants
Solder grief to my ankles
Disrobe the feet
and attach contact closures
going to ground
with curb feelers on the big and small toes
to keep me on track
The human monorail
for y'all to get on, and get off
and I the vehicle

Okay. Okay! You guys are driving us nuts -
"Hey CreDi, who's the best band right now?"
"Holtek, who you think is number one?"
Well, there's a heavy list of a dozen or so who could easily step in and out of that placeholder at the moment, but we simply can't go wrong with calling "Schwarz". The best band right now is Schwarz. And "Fuzz Tanzz" is one of the best songs in the last 3 and a half years.

Sometimes I "get into my work" so deeply that I forget to swallow and will occasionally drool on myself.

A lot of people think being an artist makes you "cool" but how cool is it when you've been trying to impress some cute girl in your ceramic's studio and she looks over and sees drool running down your chin?
