Cat’s Head Point

Cat’s Head Point was quiet…. surprisingly… quiet…

Charlie Kelly: “Hello! Charlie Kelly here… local business man and cat enthusiast. Is your cat making too much noise all the time? Is your cat constantly stomping around, driving you crazy? Is your cat clawing at your furniture? Think there’s no answer? You’re so stupid! There is! Kitten Mittens! Finally, there’s a elegant, comfortable mitten for cats. I couldn’t hear anything! Is your cat one-legged? Is your cat fat, skinny or an in-between? That doesn’t matter, ’cause one size fits all! Kitten Mittens… you’ll be smitten! So come on down to Paddy’s Pub… we’re the home of the original Kitten Mittens! Meeeeeeoooooow!”

Of Mardi Gras & Fake Daguerreotypes

It just wouldn’t be Mardi Gras without a mask… and fake daguerreotypes (until I can learn how to make real ones).  Yeah, I know, according to AlternativePhotography.com,

“Daguerreotypy employs toxic chemicals that improperly handled can do irreparable damage to your lungs, nervous system, environment, family, pets, and neighbors…”

Blah blah blah. Whatever. I still think this old photographic process is ridiculously interesting. In the mean time I guess I’ll stick to acrylic and aluminum flashing fakery. *sigh*

Party on, everyone!
