A dear friend of mine moved to Nashville a month ago, and I am just rounding up her farewell package. ‘Tardy but well-intentioned’ is the story of my life. Or maybe ‘scattered but incredibly charming’. Whatev. Old artwork, in-jokes, a mix cd, lucky things. I love doing teeny lettering with micron pens like this – it’s a tedious/enjoyable sorta activity that podcasts are made for. Speaking of, you must check out the storytelling podcast Risk!, especially if you like The Moth (thanks, Alec).
Love you so much, Sarah!
"Had this really great idea to photoshop a picture or diagram of a urethra to look like a large black woman and title it “Urethra Franklin”, but it turns out I can only look at a real picture of a urethra for about half a minute before wondering why I’m even still alive on this god forsaken, awful earth. Everything is disgusting."
And please spare ten minutes for this clever, beautifully crafted short, Something Left, Something Taken - "An animated dark comedy about a vacationing couple's encounter with a man they believe to be the Zodiac Killer."
