You can get some help right here.


This year, according to this thing, I am to never give up...

Bedazzling


I have using my time off to turn myself into a new man.

Part of that is bedazzling the shit out of every denim thing I can get my hands on.


I think things are really starting to come together...
Super freaky sexy, man.


I am going to be totally bedazzling the next time you see me.

Until then, I need to finish up bedazzling my cool denim hat.

Wall of Death Wednesday







Last one of the year.


This year has kinda seemed like a ride on the wall of death...

Going fast, in circles.

Willy

So, yeah, you may have heard from another on-line source of KVC and me news...but we got a, uhm, we got a dog.
Which makes perfect sense for folks that own a herd of cats, right?
Sure it does.

We entirely know what we are doing here...

I have been reading about the huge number of Chihuahuas dumped on local shelters, lately. There are so many, here in California, that they are flying them out to shelters around the country - just to give 'em half a chance.

And KVC has been saying she wanted a dog for some time.

We were at the pet store place, to buy catfood-not get a dog, and found this guy.

He was there with a pack of various dogs all freaking out.
Not this guy, though.
He was just standing in the puppy chaos, looking us, wagging.
No yipping, yapping, barking...just wagging.

Some comparison of this dog against some cats showed that our huge feline pals could probably hold their own against the guy.

The worst part about the little guy...
He was saddled with the rather unfortunate name - Mr. Wiggles.
See, he does a lot of wiggling...

With a surprisingly quick paperwork process, some dazed dog supply shopping and thinking about that name...
We came home with Mr. William Wallace Wiggles.

Luckily, Big Willy has about a year and a half of experience at being a dog.
He seems to know the drill, with the going out and all.
Willy is showing KVC and I the ropes of dog ownership.

The cats?
We'll just say that there is a huge difference in dog and cat socialization.
There is still some adjustment going on...

That's the news.


Hey...


We are just hanging out...

Trying to not do anything and get some stuff done.

You know.

Getting ready for a new year...

Merry X-mas



We are hanging out by the tree.

Eating sausages.

Listening to some Thore Skogman.

And thinking of you this holiday.

It's X-mas

It is the holiday season...

The season when we wish the best for folks.

The people we give half a damn about...
Or more.

You know what I hope you do this year?
The same I wish I have for myself...


Make cool shit.


Maybe that doesn't seem like much...

It doesn't sound like much, sure.
But it is the biggest hope I have...
I know a lot of people who make things.
All kinds of things.

Let's all make some cool shit this year...


Get your shit together, and make something worth a damned.

Make something that people will remember.
Something that inspires others.
Make some cool shit.


For the holidays, this year, I made shit.
I made cards with KVC.
I made a freaking wreath.
I made shit because it is real.
I made it because when I do make stuff, it has soul.
Because making shit is fun.
Making shit is cool...


Inspire me, this coming year.

I will try to do the same for you.


It'll be our present to each other...

Christmas Wishes

I'll be in the garage



Yes, even when the moon base is up and going...

In my spare time, you will find me hanging out in the garage.


Occasionally, I need a break from all the stress associated with taking over the world.

Right...

This doesn't really count as a music post but it is worth it.

In the Studio

When people I know say things like "I'll be working in the studio all weekend..."

This is the image that pops into my head.

Alright, you can stop looking at Facebook and go back to making beats.

One Decade





It has been one whole decade of hitchedness for KVC and myself.

Ten years.

What were you doing ten years ago, today?


The smart people were in Vegas, hanging out with Elvis and us.
Really, Elvis was there.
We may have been hallucinating, but not about that...
It was fun.

I have been having fun with KVC ever since.



The tenth anniversary in traditionally the one for tin or aluminum gifts.



Which kind of sounds like cool old car or motorcycle parts to me...

I should probably count all of the junk I have amassed to date as my tin/aluminum gift, thanks to a decade of spousal patience and support.
If an anniversary supercharger were to show up, however, I would not send it back...



Anyway, KVC is the awesomest.

Burning Moose

Crap, I am so excited about Burning Moose!


I have been thinking that whole Burning Man thing started sucking balls about fifteen years ago.
I had considered going back then, but with every year it sounded more lame.

Still, I long to be a part of a greater community of like minded people.


I mean I like burning things and I like to wear hats with ear-flaps.


So stoked about Burning Moose.

Exploding Tacos





I love tacos.

I also love watching shit blow up.


I give you tacos, exploding in slow motion.

Why spend all that time learning how to make sauces for your food.

Somebody has already done the work and come up with a sauce that will work in any situation.

Thinking there is a motorcycle shortage in my life.

Perhaps also a sleeveless denim jacket shortage, but the bike probably should come first.

Turkey Day

Everyone here at prettynotgood is awfully excited about Turkey day.

I mean, it seems like such an interesting country. Built on the foundations of the Ottoman empire. Located in a pivotal geographic location of varied cultures.

Yeah, Turkey!

Preparations


I presume you are engaged in the preparations surrounding Thanksgiving.

I am not yet, but will be soon enough.



When I am cooking for Thanksgiving, I like to strip down, put on an apron, chef's hat and black mask - just like the little fella in this picture.


Why?

Tradition.

In the Lab

I haven't talked much about my plans to take over the world lately.

Not because I am not going to take over the world anymore.
No, I have just been a little busy in the lab.

These baboonbots are turning out to be a bit more complicated than I had expected.
The genetic modification, along with mating living tissue to a robotic substructure is some pretty big stuff.





I'll get it done though...
You can count on that.


And when you see the baboonbots rounding up members of Congress for a trip to the "re-education" facilities - you will fuckin' thank me and think that I am not such a loon after all.

I am not taking over the world for purely selfish reasons, ya know.

Lunch Spoiler



I am going to spoil lunch for you, simply because I have seen some totally creepy food shit this week.
Topping the list is this fish, which is still moving after being deep fried.

You shouldn't watch the video if you ever want to...
Well...
It is creepy.


Then, over in Moscow there was the story of homeless cannibals selling their leftovers to a kebab restaurant.
I suppose that cannibal corpse-kebabs should top the fish video on the graph of grossness.



Maybe the pending Thanksgiving holiday has me more attuned to food stuff, right now.

I swear, I have read thirty different articles on brining and roasting turkeys in the past week.
Which would be great if I had any intention of wrestling with a big bird this year.
I don't.




So, anyway, doesn't Vietnamese sandwich sound good. Maybe?

Well, in spite of everything I was just talking about, I mean...
Perhaps some pho?

I here that there is a joint by the new Asian market in my hood with the banh mi and the pho - that I haven't checked out.
