Custom Work

roocifer has every reason to be annoyed with me, as I said long ago I'd do this, and just never seemed to get around to completing it...but I'm trying to start the new year off right by catching up on some work...so, without further ado, I present her custom billboard.

Serendipitous Happenstance

Out at the grocery store, looking my usual scruffy self: black jeans, boots, leather jacket with the chains and skulls, etc. Also happen to be wearing my black 'Bad Religion' t-shirt, with the large cross-buster logo. Get in line behind this guy, looks like Mr. Joe Q. Suburbia, there with his daughter who looks about 13. Normal people, right?

I'm just starting to bag my groceries when he leans over to me, glances down at the shirt, and pipes up with "Hey, nice shirt!" I'm surprised, but I say thanks, figuring he's an old-school rock fan. He looks again, and then says "Yeah, nice message...way to stick it to the Bible-thumpers!" It dawns on me that he has no idea this is a band, he just thinks it's cool that I have the guts to wear it as some sort of message. I let him know that it is an old SoCal punk band, but that yeah, it works that way as well. He smiles, informs me that he thinks there are too many Bible-thumpers in this town, reads and laughs heartily about my 'Jesus Would Slap The Shit Out Of You' button, and finally heads off, daughter in tow, giving me the ol' "power to the people" fist-in-the-air.

LMAO...always fascinating to run into random cool people like that. Gives me some small hope for humanity.

Freebie Icon

It's not something I do often, but what the Hell. Just made an icon, and figured there's a few of you guys that like the movie "The Boondock Saints" as much as I do...so this icon is up for general grabs, and all who want to use it may do so with my blessing. All I ask, as always, is that, if someone asks you about it, you point them my way.

Also, I just won second place in a 'Disney' theme icon contest. Anyone that knows me knows I have a severe hatred for Disney, so that may come as a shock...but dig the icon:

And yes, that one's also available for use. In fact, I'd love it if you did.
