mabjustmab: (cheeky monkey sideshow)
My advanced copy of Tony Ganji's new book, Carny Sideshows: Weird Wonders of the Midway arrived today. inside you will find many wonders, including (but not limited to) the Cheeky Monkey Sideshow(!!fangirl squee!!!) ^_^

pick it up if you get a chance. It really is a wonderful read.

I recently received an email from a local fellow who is now creating gaffs. some of the work is nice, and I really like the old style/vintage feel to them.

check him out:

I can't wait to see what he whips up next!

how to become famous.

this is something that I actually do spend a lot of time thinking about. I think I already knew the basic theory of 1000 true fans. but this article puts it nicely into easy to understand words. *better than I, the word mangler!*

the trick is...making those 1000 true fans. that's worth some contemplation.

thank you to [livejournal.com profile] oletheros for posting about this.
I'm passing it on to the other artists out there.

I need help. You folks out there are more savvy w/ the shopping online technique. I would like to get another skirt to supplement/backup my show skirt.
I would love to get another one just like the one I have. but I am doubtful that I will find it.

I like the color. I like the shape. I like the pattern.

I have ~no~ idea how to find another one. money is only slightly an object. (I would like to pay less than $100)

help? suggestions where to look? know of a great skirt that would work?
post the links baby!
