je vais prendre ta douleur

Crazy what happened in Paris yesterday. And in Beirut.

Angry chicken will fuck shit up if you mess with his Parisian envelope holder.

I don't have words for it.

I just keep trying to focus on the good people are doing in the aftermath. People opening their homes to complete strangers. A simple hashtag that demonstrates love and compassion in the face of a heinous act is a nice middle finger to those who use their hatred to try and kill the will of a people. I like that shit.

When I was a kid I wanted to live in Paris. My favorite book was The Little Prince. I loved F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, both of whom made Paris seem like a magical place for artists. And French women... I was gonna marry one. I went so far as to apply for a position at the Disneyland Park in Paris. It was going to be that or the Air Force. I got my paperwork from Disney back, an interview was set and I was gung-ho.

Then I talked to a friend who had worked for Disneyland once upon a time. She scared me out of it. I will never be the type to thank someone for giving me their trash.

I never married a French girl.

Zero regrets about that one.

One of the most talented artists you've never heard of:

Titty sprinkles.
