Yeah, I haven't been in a swap in over a year, but this looks good. Count me in please - time to release some angst.

Got my first image parked over in the adult side. Don't click this unless unless you enjoy a good mental scar. (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=232802) You have been warned.

Anyhow, if you don't want this in the swap, let me know. Otherwise, I will consider it one down.

I'm due to leave the county at the end of June, so I was promising myself not to sign up for any more swaps. However, awesome swap theme + awesome players + weak self control = sign me up!

I'll do my best to get these out before I leave; if I do need to drop I'll give plenty of notice.

Also, has anyone read Katherine Dunn's Geek Love? I just finished it and can recommend it as a pretty good read on this swap theme.

Joe's weak self control = our good fortune!

Geek Love: Haven't read it...but if it comes with your stamp, I'm sure it's worthy.

AnnD
06-12-2011, 11:28 PM
Joe, your weak self control makes us all very happy, as do your mad skillz!

I had the pleasure of starting to work on this swap this weekend while Cindyjob was a-visiting me. I finished two cards that I really like and completely WRECKED a third by acting like my drawing paper is watercolor paper. Sadly, it's not.

This theme is really something. I've inked SEVEN cards for it already. I don't think I can stop!!! I'm waiting on color as I have a big box of art supplies coming from Dick Blick (only 100 miles away according to Fed ex...wish they'd hurry).

Every time I see someone else's cards I get more new ideas!! Fun, fun, crazy fun.

Just outta curiosity... has anyone evr been to a real freak show (not sure if thats the PC term, lol)? I'm thinking they are pretty much extinct, but someone enlighten me if i'm wrong... if i am, then what are they really like?

AnnD
06-30-2011, 09:31 PM
We watch "Oddities," and given the number of sideshow performers who come into the shop, I'd say they're alive and well, at least in Coney Island, if not elsewhere. I haven't had the pleasure, though.

TF Balding
06-30-2011, 10:22 PM
Thats my favorite show, lol.... told da hubby i SO want one of those toenail sculptures they showed that chick making one time!
And i've heard of stuff at Coney Island, but have never been that far north. Would totally go if i could. ;)

oddbreed
07-01-2011, 01:47 AM
I went to the side show once or twice during a show here in Washinton, nothing too freaky, rather interesting! BUT my daughter has this friend who was born a condition that made her bones like cartilage like, she can been her fingers and toes into all kinds of positions, shes rather gumbyish all over, ive more stories but youll hav et what to hear them!~

No for-real sightings for me neither. Though, there was a pretty blonde little person who was a fairly sought-out stripper in rural Wisconsin when I lived there. Never got to see (1) her striptease or (2) Lambeau Field. Equal desire and regret on both :D!

debs913
07-01-2011, 09:43 PM
How could you miss Lambeau Field?? (Shakes head in dismay :skeptical:

TF Balding
07-03-2011, 12:06 AM
And a tiny stripper??? Woulda HAD 2 see that!!!

oddbreed
07-03-2011, 08:59 AM
HAAA nannner...tiny strippers and you missed it? too fun!
the sideshow here at one of the polluzas had some whack peeps...i got to see a big dumb bell weight attached to some genitals...whos the dumb bell here?

well we dont have to pay for admissionto the show this weekend, the freaks have all come out for the holiday and let me tell you! i practically needed to be sedated to go into town yesterday!

nanner
07-03-2011, 06:03 PM
How could you miss Lambeau Field?? (Shakes head in dismay :skeptical:

I KNOW. And even more dismay for outing myself in public with such a travesty! That plus missing the Tiny Dancer...seriously shameful. :unsure:

Odd One, you really need to snap a couple piccys for us.

Holiday-time people watching is the BEST. The folks out here are pouring in droves to the beach. So, they are parking a good 2 miles away (cuz there is NO parking within a mile of the water at this point), and carrying chairs, towels and KEGS en route. One guy we passed was on a bike was singing a song about weed at the top of his lungs. And last week, I saw a pimped out hearse with the custom plate "HURSULA".

It's happy mayhem.

Lots of awesome cards have arrived since last I checked in!
