Denmark and back, in 17,000 steps.

Scuba Diving, Books, Movies, Art and all the things that I love. (Sorry if you came for sweet pics of Denmark, I'll go one day.)

niceandpeaceful said: Will your book (now with starred Kirkus review!) be available for purchase directly from you? Or should I order it from an internet megastore and hope some of my money manages to trickle its way down to you?

I assume we’ll be stocking some at the Mountain Goats online store, and I expect we’ll have them for sale at Mountain Goats shows when I do get back out on the road. But as is the case with our albums, my strong preference is that you purchase anything of mine that you want to hear from your local independent retailer - bookstore in this case, record store in the “albums” case. 

The ongoing survival of local independent bookstores is more important to me than me getting the most money. Don’t get me wrong, I genuinely appreciate the sentiment that you want to put more money in my pocket: makes me feel awesome. But I would like to share that money with local independent bookstores, since I grew up haunting the aisles of local independent bookstores and they made me who I am in large part; and the most efficient way for me to share the money with them is if people buy the books there, because me driving around to a bunch of them saying “here’s your cut of the book I sold directly to a reader, thanks for all the good times” would totally be ridiculous and impractical, however excellent a concept for a weekly tv show it might be. 

Cut back on your daily plastic use.

English artist Craig Davison creates series of paintings that beautifully illustrate the awesome power of childhood imagination and our limitless ability to play pretend as our favorite movie characters. He draws from a wide variety of movies, but the pieces seen here all revolve around Star Wars.

Kids play their hearts in the foreground while their shadows loom larger than life in the background as the fictional characters they’re pretending to be. Tree branches have become light sabers, cardboard tubes and a hair dryer work equally well as blasters, a garbage can and a colander are all you need to be R2-D2 and C3PO, and a pair of headphones serve as Princess Leia’s cinnamon bun hairdo.

Visit Craig Davison’s website to check out more of his delightful and nostalgic artwork. Then go grab a tree branch and meet us at the park for a light saber duel.
