Sticking it to the man one inch at a time

I'm going to be selling fistfulls of my silly shiny 1" buttons at this here Flabbernathy's Functional Art Faire thang going on This Very Coming Saturday!

Please come out and have some excellent chai, meet some swanky artists and schmooze it up if you're in or around the east bay.

I know, short notice. But you know how it goes. It is, after all, the Year of the COCK now... Gung hay fat choy and what's this, Valentine's too? My goodness.

About my pins? Well, Some are original reproductions of my own artwork and photography, but the really fun ones are my one-of-a-kind mixed-media button collages. They're hard to describe.


Pissed off by all the wasteful mass-marketing, manufactured consent and heavy-handed commercial pressure to conform? Sick of taking it from the MAN? Yeah! Well, my unabashed deconstructions and cut-ups are almost 100% recycled symbolism, pornography and pop cultural ephemera! I'm sticking it to the man One Inch At A Time. GET IT? Oh there's a catchy tag line.

Plus they make great cheap romantic gifts, just like cemetery plots! Buy now and rest easy. Or, actually, buy Saturday.

Anyhow, um... That was some crap I wrote up on Tribe and it made me laugh. So I put it here, too.

Dear Caffeina,
I can't make it to Oakland on such short notice and yet I too want to stick it to the man inch by inch. What's an East-Coast girl to do?

post modern puzzler!
Dear Buttonless,
I'm glad you wrote. Alla y'all got to put that east-coast west-coast rivalry to rest, yo. Put that shit behind us! I think we could find some way to trick you out so you can stick your inches all up in there. How many inches you need? What you want them to look like? So far, every single pin is totally unique, the style depends on what I have available to cut up. Yeah, i'll make you up some pins! It's fun!

Re: shucks
Good plan:
  1. Look up address of event
  2. Write down address
  3. Walk there
  4. Profit!

Bad plan:
  1. Look up address of event
  2. Walk there
  3. ???

I'm still not sure how I missed it, I must have walked right by it.
