She's so much better than you.

Another Day in the Life of Bear Bear and The Little Bukowski

Another Day in the Life


Bear Bear & The Little Bukowski

my friend, andrea, bought me deer antlers for the project i've been working on for awhile.

(weird, these antlers have as many little outgrowth points as the antlers on my chest... it was fate)

as a cruisade against animal cruelty, i decided i am to start rescuing antlers and taxidermy from their sad homes mounted in pawn shops and flea markets. Since we can't retrieve back the bullet, i refuse to see their bones left for dust. If all that's left of them is their skull and crown, then it's my job to give it life again.

so the other night i began cleaning and sanding this deer's headstone in order to start the first piece....

the plaque he is mounted on will be painted and decorated, the pedicle (the point at which the antler's bones begin to grow from) will be groomed and on some it will be dyed, his antlers will be garnished with ribbons and fake birds and velvet to mimic it's natural state, and soon this previous act of murder will finally stand for some sort of purpose.

thus begins

-This Skull and Crown_

.a memoire of life.

but like most days spent in this is spent alone for only so long...

and then comes an intruder...

it turns out Bear is a little jealous of all the primping being afforded to the antlers. so the project had to be set aside for Bear Bear Fur-Style Time.

honestly, i thought it looked great....

bur Sir Bear Bear the Diva didn't agree

after throwing a trantrum and mauling his bow to death, he took some time to think about how ridiculous he'd been acting.

after apologizing, he insisted on trying on the antlers.

turns out i never owned a chihuahua.

i didn't realize it until now but all this time i've been the proud owner of a miniature fawn.

bear wanted to change his name to beer, you know, to suit his new life as a tiny deer species...

but then quickly understood he was acting ridiculous again.

so we opted against the misappropriated reference to alcohol and instead he now goes by the nickname


you know, like bambi...


i thought it was dumb too.


the little bukowski


you would like to donate a pair of antlers to my project,

This Skull and Crown

please drop me a message for more information and a list of local pawn shops and flea markets where you can help rescue these deer.

every antler donation will be recrafted and the final piece will include your name as a savior of a once wasted life.

your help will make their final resting place beautiful again.

Hello Kitty Charms to Drown Out Urination Sounds and SO...MUCH...MORE

The shear volume of Hello Kitty gadgets on this site is one thing... but the insane cuteness of each is another. I couldn't even decide what to feature. It was like being stranded in an ocean with 578437509375 red bows to hold on to and you keep grabbing another and another because maybe that one will keep you afloat longer. You may ask what the hell is that boring last image doing here... that is the device you will soon make synonymous with all bodily functions. It is a phone charm that you press when going to the bathroom and it flushes out all embarassing noises (click it to see actual youtube footage in action). Click each to see more of its kind and buy!
