Blood Moon

I stayed up for the blood moon the other night and we could still see it despite the Vegas lights. This was the best of 30 or so tries because I don’t know how to use my camera.


Derek and the Gator (PPP)

Another picture in our ongoing poetry project. I drew the picture but my wife took the picture in the background.

Derek and the Gator

Sometimes it can be quite strange
when meeting an alligator on the beach
its hard to know exactly what to say
or what conclusion the meeting will reach
Will the gator attempt to be friends
or are his goals something far more suspect
is the gator putting his hand out to be kind
or is he just getting close so he can bite your neck

All I can say is Derek maybe you should have gone to the mountains instead
You may end up with a new friend or you may end up without your head





The old stone bridge, it seems so fun!

to play on the stones in the evening sun,

but stay too late or play too long,

or stamp your feet while you sing your song,

and out he’ll sneak, won’t make a sound

he’ll creepy crawl right out of the ground,

smell your scent with his ugly nose.

You’ll only escape if you tippy on your toes

off of that bridge before the troll can bite!

Back to your house before the day turns to night.


So we’re going to start posting some pictures that tell a little story with a poem.  Let us know what you think.  The best ones are going to end up in a book (the book will definitely have a better title than Picklesoda Poetry Project).  And of course it is understood at Picklesoda that all poems rhyme (we are very close minded that way unless you don’t think we should be).  So here’s the first one.

Picklesoda Poetry Project (or some other better name)

Elephant’s love chocolate

This elephant with the sinister look on her face
is not contemplating robbery or cheating in a race
no her thoughts are less sinister by far
she just doesn’t want to share her candy bar

One thing I love about the internet is that it gives you the chance to meet so many talented people all over the world. One of these talented people happens to be a friend of Pickle Soda who is trying to raise funds on Kickstarter to fund her first EP of brand new, all original music. She is so close to reaching her goal!

So, if you like new music and want to support independent artists (like Pickle Soda) click on the link and check out Riot Upstairs.

Bathroom Art

This picture hangs over my toilet (i painted it). I’m not really sure why but it has found it’s place there. I just saw Lincoln the other day where Abe shares an anecdote about an American using a bathroom in England shortly after the revolutionary war. The American’s hosts hung a picture of George Washington by the toilet. When the American comes back to the party from using the toilet the hosts wait and wait for him to respond and then they finally ask, “What do you think of the location of the portrait?” The American then said, “I think its very appropriate. Everybody knows that nothing makes an Englishman poop faster then the sight of George Washington.” Abe used a different word then poop.

This of course brings up the question of what makes good bathroom art? To me the art needs a little mystery. Something to contemplate while taking care of business.
