"You must be hungry hungry, Hippopotamus"

I curated a selection of random crap gifts for Tytus' Bday - Spock socks with protruding vulcan ears, beer goggles pint glass bands, a bottle of Fallen Timber Hopped Mead, and then made him an mdf transfer of a hippo sketch I did a long time ago, complete with original hippo haiku.

That's not a real website, btw.

And what birthday party is complete, without some polaroid action. These were taken with an SX-70 on Impossible Project Film. The film has a ridiculously slow development time, so for this first shot of TK drunkenly playing the guitar, I chucked it in the microwave to see how heat would speed up the process. The thing shot off sparks within seconds, and the back melted, complete with chemical burn smells. If you're going to try this, would suggest you set it on low power or possibly the defrost cycle. And don't walk away, cause it'll probably end up in flames if you aren't there to stop it.

I sort of like the effect generated here. Particularly the burnt edges.

They need to make unicorn costumes for adults more common.

He apparently was playing Sweet Home Alabama, but it sounded more like a grandpa tripping down the stairs with a guitar strapped to his back.
