i love our little 8 ball.
when i'm feeling cocky,
mischievous, or just plain bored
i ask it stuff..

like tonight..

'will i be famous?'
shake, shake, spin, twiiiiiiiiirl, jerk

'very doubtful'

well, then....
'will i be successful?'

shake, twiiiiiiiiiirl, roll, spiiiiiiiiiiin, jerk

'ask again later'
(hmph....times 2)

finally.....after waiting 21 seconds..

'will i be successful?!?!?!?!??!'
rattle, rock, jerk, double roll plus a twist with lime


aaaaaah.......all is right with the world..

Hi, Baby Smith
Hey, you're already famous (it's nothing to desire, by the way). With your art you make something from nothing. You're smart . . . you turn a walk into work. You find life's disparate pieces and put them together. Your Magic Eight Ball is the big, black olive (tapenade, enjoy it with wine) that feeds you when you're hungry. We all rely on external forces. Since our card-playin' days I've been checking in on you periodically, and in my estimation, you're the real deal. Keep making your art. It's good for the soul.

heeeeeeLLO scott!!!!!!
heee heeeee...fame is highly over rated...yes. i'm afraid i'd become one of those child actor types, relying heavily on howard stern appearances and reality based shows...and the re-hab costs alone would kill me!!!

great to hear from you.. thanks for all your kind words..from a fellow artist, that means a lot! and keep up YOUR work, i'll be curious to see what you're crumpling next..

hee heeee...
something tells me you have a ouija board, tarot cards AND a crystal ball by your bed, TOO!!!!
hey, ya can never have too many guides...or too many balls?!?!?!

Well... i do have more balls than most! but none made of crystal and no ouija board. ouija boards freak me out too much to have one in the house.

i wouldn't mind getting an acrylic ball for contact juggling some day!!! as for tarot cards... yep. got me a nice deck o'cards, but i really don't know how to read them. i'm so pathetic. i did recently pick up a "tarot for dummies" book though! it was at the grocery store check out for a buck or so. i couldn't resist! and it actually didn't look too bad, information-wize. but my magic 8 ball? now that is a prized possession fer shur.
