IDEA #20

Facebook people are getting tired of my friend, TIM,
always rambling on about how sucky his life is, his wife is, his job is... I mean- they want to hear about WHAT YOU ATE FOR LUNCH and/or what AMC TELEVISION SHOW you are currently marathon-ing over the weekend, c'mon people!

Facebook isn't for psychoanalysis by your peers.

It isn't for venting your frustrations and questioning your choices and crying out for help from someone, ANYONE who has maybe BEEN THERE BEFORE and can HELP YOU THROUGH the tougher times of life...

BUT IT COULD BE.

And we could name it OPENbook.

And we could be million-ga-zillion-aires and wipe our butts with Zuckerburgs...

19th million dollar idea



You liked RING POPS as a kid, right?

What about CANDY NECKLACES???

Yes- you got it- there just isn't enough FOOD YOU CAN WEAR... Sure, any fool can sew together lunchmeat to make a pair of trousers, but CANDY is where it is at (and has been at for decades)-

SO why not address the MILLIONS of people who BITE THEIR NAILS while adding to the spartan bevy of wearable treats???

EDIBLE, CHEWABLE, bite-able, CANDY FINGERNAILS!!!

TRIFECTA




Forgot to post about my DECEMBER.

Was in a Star Wars group show at the Basement Pub, was in a Small Things group show at The Artichoke gallery on STARK St., AND organized and participated in the TOYS & GAMES group show at the Black Cat on 12th and Alberta.

I sold stuff from all 3 shows.

Whoooopeee for me!

LOST SKETCHBOOK


Maybe I was even going to PUBLISH it someday, then I got drunk last month and LOST IT... Somewhere between HOLMAN's bar, doug's car, the RADIO CAB, and the cold cold walk up SE 148th... It got lost.

It contained various witticisms and comics about my relationships.
About 100 pages of cartoons and jokes.
Ending with a letter that Erica wrote, when she didn't want to see me anymore.
It was funny and heartbreaking...

I loved it.

Then I lost it.

(just like all of the girls it was about)

CLAY WORKS






These guys were fun to make and even more fun to give away.

ChipenDillweed




She came to visit us every Sunday morning.

She left with a mouthful of nuts.





.

Love my mom


A clay tribute to the lady who gave me a love for the medium.

Seasonal figures made by hand.

Celebration, devotion, work, passion, personable decorations instead of WALMART china trinkets....

Thanks mom.
Love ya'!


.

I'll draw your kid for $100




But I get to take the picture that
I work from...

And the $100 has to be in $2 bills...

But other than that...
NO LIMITS!




.

corey hart was hear


WHY does he do it?


... So he can watch you weave and breathe your stormy lies, THAT's why....

THE RZA


a collab with pete mickie-d...

Jabba Guitar


Never did get a GOOD picture of this Hipster Rocker Jabba done on the back of an acoustic guitar.

What a dumb complaint.

It sold too fast....



duhhhrrr..

STAR WARS SUPER CUTIES





These little guys are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO fun to do, yet I sell them SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cheap... hrm... even gave a couple away at the BASEMENT PUB starwars group show in December.


What a sap.

My midichlorian count was low.

#18- ON THE COB






Ok Ok Ok Ok ok ok Ok oKok ok ok OK OK OK ok ok Ok.....
Candy corn ON THE COB has now been created...
I talked about it for years and years and somehow my mind BROADCASTED the idea out into the ether.

I'm glad.

No one is making A MILLION DOLLARS from the concept yet, but I am happy it is gaining momentum... It is only a matter of time...

A couple of NEW ruminations on the same theme:

-POPcorn on the COB... no more messy transmission from bowl to hole.

-CREAMED corn on the COB... you have your bare cob, you have your bowl of creamed corn, you just dip it and enjoy (ever heard of fondue or french dip sandwiches?)

-CORNDOG on the COB... it is a corn on the cob, deep fried with cornbread around it... SCRUMdiddlyUMPtious!!!!



!!!
when in doubt-
COB IT!

MD idea #18


SUPER FUDGE

VITAMIN packed-fudge that contains 100% of your daily needs...
This fudge is P-A-C-K-E-D!!!!

or

like an ENERGY DRINK- this fudge is PACKED with caffeine and raw energy power- enough to keep you awake for 48 hours!!!


Either way-
THIS FUDGE IS .p.a.c.k.e.d...!!!!!



(and then it is packed up and shipped to you...)

17th million dollar idea



KNEE SADDLE

For when you want to bounce your child upon your bony-ass knee... C'mon, it IS fun, but it could be so so so much better and cooler.

Million Dollar Idea #16




JACK HOLES

(or D-BAGS)

It is the title for a movie about 3 brothers who are convinced they are still high-school-cool, when really they are stuck in a lame repeating cycle.

Think Will Ferrel from Wedding Crashers, only semi-dramatic and heartbreaking - instead of slapstick upside your head.

They are:
Ben Affleck
Ed Burns
and
Jon Krasniski (from the Office)

Million Dollar Idea #11


SINCE I SKIPPED IT A WHILE BACK!!!!

The GAY.T.M.

It is an ATM that only dispenses $3 bills.

(as in "as queer as a 3 dollar bill".)

These dollars 'cost' 3 dollars, but are redeemable for 5 dollars worth of product/services at GAY FRIENDLY establishments that choose to participate.


It's called SCRIP, people, been done for years...


.

JOUST



Easily my favourite arcade game... Why isn't PETER JACKSON making this into a movie RIGHT NOW??!?!?!??!???!!!!!

(oh yeah, I never get what I want...)





.

CYKILL suitcase



Yes, the leader of the evil GOBOTS...
THE RENEGADES,
now a hand utilitarian item for carrying around your ZOD bot and double A batteries!!!

DIG DUGs



times two


for your wines

RADDY



radio active carebear on a skate board....

...or is TOXY the toxic waste carebear a better name?

Ah, the trials and tribulations of an artist, bet Leonardo never found himself in a dilemma like this....
