Thingedy Stuff and Things

 Hey you- wanna get looked at like you're a crazy person? Go get you in a shoe store, hear a classic 80s hip hop jam, turn to the 1st store worker you see- a very cute black girl proly no older than 19- and yell, "Is this Da Butt?" Yeah. Do that.
Then watch as she yells to all the other workers in the store while you backtrack, "Um... it's not really important" 
while a hot guy in dreads goes, "Is this the what?" and you find yourself going, "You know, Doin' Da Butt, awww, sexy sexy...." 
and start wondering if you're totally confusing this with anything else cuz its been maybe 20 years or more since you heard it and it's not at the refrain or anything....
 as the workers track down the oldest lady in the place... who has no idea why people keep yelling at her about butts...
 til finally and to your almost painful relief you hear "Doin' Da Butt! AAAW! Sexy sexy! When you get that notion/put your back field in motion- AW!"
 Finding yourself unable to hold back a few buttcentric moves. Or they would be if you had anything other than a flat plank of wood where an ass might go, a condition also know as Noasatol Syndrome.
 I've learned to live with Noasatol.
I tried to take a better picture of these.
Y'all ever just loose listings?
Don't know if you hit 'edit' instead of 'copy' or just never listed them in the first place?

Happened with these and those and those.

So here they are, up in the shop.
Also took some very crappy pix of this stuff that isn't crappy but the pix iz.

 Whatevs, I'll take the rest of the images some other time. 
Not tomorrow thought because Mom and I are going to get a new baby sister for Chiquita. 
Now check this out. I got these wrapping papers on etsy for just $12. 
Moon Map Wrapping Paper
I put them in this huge cheap IKEA frame- just double sided tape on the backboard that comes with the frame.

 OK, can't get a decent picture with all the reflections but dude! It's just printed on soft newsprint and all, but its so awesome. I'm so psyched.

I just stare at it like:

And then I celebrate like:

(P.S. Lovely comments about what is an artist still coming in. I'm sure there's some questions I forgot to address. If you ask me twice there's a 95%% chance I'll remember to answer next post.)

i am gonna out myself. i have been reading your blog from now and then back to the beginning-ish. watching your progression through it all has been so much fun. i also learned more than my fair share of how to do something solving problems i was unwilling to tackle. so a big fat thank you for all of that. and i never let you know how many times i wanted to say something... starting with thank you, but did not. i was thinking it though and knew your radar was picking it up somehow.

as for being an artist... in my opinion it has as many faces as people who embrace the entire lifestyle.
i have been making things for as long as i can remember and possibly further back than that.
in my world, there are a few components to being an artist... firstly there is the itch to make. doesn't really matter to me what it is... cause the second part is that there are plenty of materials to choose from to satisfy the making itch. i got it bad. and a third component of it is, not being able to quit... not being able to stop to get a job doing something else. .. or not being able to not have the freedom to just be a maker when you need to.
i am not financially fluid a lot of the time, but i am rich with my dreams getting into real life. and the journey is pretty satisfying a lot of the time. it is always something... to quote gilda radner. i just cannot have my life any other way after trying so hard to figure out what it was about me that was really me.
thanks for the latest eye candy too. it is all so yummy.

Laughing hysterically, through the whole post- totally envisioning myself doing this very thing. I have a serious weakness for 80s rap and dance tunes. Cuz I lived it. And LOVED it.
Anyway had to back up and look through your post a second time to see the jewelry! All beautiful and eclectic as usual. love you. so. much.

Noasatol - snort!
Lurve the earrings. The long dangly bits and the different strokes for different folks bits, and the deep grunge and high gold bits. Lurve. And thanks to you I have a new obsession, to hunt down some fine papers like this! Enjoy the day, Miss Fanci. Erin

I am laughing my "butt" off. I loved that song and my mother was totally disgusted by it. Still laughing!!! Will have to remind my mother of it. I love all of the earrings.

Da Butt: 1988, Spike Lee. classic film!

hey, that was when DANCING with your BUTT still had some DIGNITY to it!
...not like today, where women don't think twice about what it "makes them look like"
(this is a "dance school2!?!?)

(...hasn't anyone wondered why no *male equivalent* has appeared?
Maybe cuz they have more self-dignity!?!?
