John Darnielle on desperation (he’s talking about us):
I know the people who laugh are the ones who have been the most desperate. [laughter] Because you reach a certain point in the pursuit of desperation where everything seems funny. [laughter] Oh, it looks as though you have no prospects! [laughter] No, but I’m worried about you. You’re going down the drain. Your grades have slipped and you have no money and your folks don’t like you, what are you gonna do? [laughter] What am I gonna do, huh? Well, I’ll stop by sometime next week then, maybe I’ll see you then, maybe you’ll be feeling better than you are now. [laughter]
This is why everyone laughs at the restaurant so much.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! To start 2014 off right and to announce the re-opening of my ONLINE STORE I’m having a giveaway! I’ve been getting a lot of asks if I will be selling my Rohan patches and the answer is YES! But these test ones I got back were printed too large so I’m giving them away!
One Rohan patch, One Not all those who wander patch, One Thorin Oakenshield charm AND a copy of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition Blu Ray (It’s a North American Region copy)!

I’ve loved R Travale’s stuff for years and years! Look at this cool stuff she’s having a contest about.
It’s been a little while since I posted any artwork— ack! It’s been kind of a hectic summer gearing up for the wedding + gallery show. I really can’t wait for some quiet time to make a lot more artwork—I miss sharing art with you, internet!
This will be a 3 color 11x14” screenprint for the gallery show. With love to John and John—this is still hands down one of my most favorite songs.
BUY THIS FOR ME.
