Another baking dilemma brings about a new haiku. Remember when GingerDead tried to make steak and kidney pie? Please feel free to write your own haiku in the comments area. You know that makes me all sorts of giddy.
Speaking of haiku, I have an awesome link for you. This one is particularly relevant and geared to my readers and not only my personal whims. A friend of mine started a new website called Indecent Haiku. It just launched but is chock full of over 100 humorous haiku and readers are welcome to submit haiku to be published on the site (providing it’s accepted). I believe the only requirements are that you write an actual haiku, take a stab at it being humorous and probably not too profane (despite the ‘indecent’ in the site name). 😛
The verbage on the site is a bit self-deprecating. A lot of artists seem to approach their work with the disclaimer of suckitude, but I read a number of haiku today and these far from suck. In fact, they are pretty damn awesome. I’m going to subscribe to the newsletter and get the latest updates in my email. Anyway, check it out and if you feel inclined to, submit a haiku or two. It’s just like posting here, as it’s a wordpress generated site, so it’s easy peasy. Besides, it will probably thrill Pip to see new readers actually participate in the haiku action. 🙂
I have a new release this week in the GingerDead Goth and Alternative Greeting Card collection. It’s an old comic of mine that begged to be a Valentine’s Day card except the art work was hideous. I redrew it from scratch specifically for the card and am pleased with the results. This one is particularly good if you are so into someone that occasionally you fantasize about eating them.
It’s called Vendetta Passion Haiku and is of course available in my Etsy Store. Here’s a lil pic of it:
That’s all for now. Show me some haiku love (syllables in each line follow the 5,7,5 rule..or break that rule if you want, i’m easy) and I’ll see you next week.
