Napoleon Dynamite for the Signs
  • Aries: "Tina, you fat lard, come get some DINNER!... Tina, eat. Food. Eat the FOOD!"
  • Taurus: "I could wrap you in some foam, or something billowy?"
  • Gemini: "Oh yeah? Who's the only one here who knows secret Ninja moves from the government?"
  • Cancer: "Kay, hold still right there. Now, just imagine you're weightless, in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by tiny little seahorses."
  • Leo: "LaFawnduh is *the* best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm 100% positive she's my soul mate. Don't worry Napoleon, I'm sure there's a babe out there for you too. Peace out."
  • Virgo: "It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip. It's probably the best drawing I've ever done."
  • Libra: "I see you're drinking 1%. Is that 'cause you think you're fat? 'Cause you're not. You could be drinking whole if you wanted to."
  • Scorpio: "Well, I have all your equipment in my locker. You should probably come get it cause I can't fit my numchucks in there anymore."
  • Sagittarius: "Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter."
  • Capricorn: "They're pretty good, except for one little problem. That little guy right there. He is nipple number five. A good dairy cow should have, like, four."
  • Aquarius: "Last week, Japanese scientists explaced... placed explosive detonators at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness to blow Nessie out of the water. Sir Cort Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summoned the help of Scotland's local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake and its local residents and all those who seek for the peaceful existence of our underwater ally."
  • Pisces: "Well, things are getting pretty serious right now. I mean, we chat online for, like, two hours every day so I guess you could say things are gettin' pretty serious."

We spent a few months amassing a small collection of museum specimens from the different areas and offices around the building, for display on the set of our new program, Natural News from The Field Museum which launches September 14th! In a few weeks we’ll share a video talking about more of these objects in detail, but in the meantime: 

I spy Triceratops, blue as can be-
A -morpho in glass, Apatosaurus in green
Some corals, a seahorse – tiny ear bones between
And a raccoon painting, just barely seen. 

I spy two ancient horses, a globe near some books-
A fossilized pine cone, a hominid skull in a nook.
I spy the trilobites: seven in all
One is gigantic, six others are small. 

I spy a human heart, modeled in plastic
Gorgosaurus posed to eat (it’s my favorite; fantastic)
A typewriter with margins set to print labels
And a handful of pamphlets for display on the table. 

I spy adventure, excitement and knowledge
A collection of wonder and more things to acknowledge.
I wrote this for you in the hopes you’ll stay tuned
For our new program which I’m so thrilled is launching SOON!

:D 

in the offices of the bojack horseman writers
  • Person 1: Okay, what are some ideas for the new season?
  • Person 2: What if Bojack goes underwater?
  • Person 1: Okay, good, then what?
  • Person 2: And it's like a whole other civilisation
  • Person 1: We can make the episode almost entirely silent, could provide some interesting concepts. But it's missing something, what is it?
  • Person 2: I've got it!
  • Person 1: What??
  • Person 2: Tiny baby seahorse dicks
  • Person 1: you are a fucking genius

When I was little I wanted to be a scientist.  Desperately.  Discover the world.  I would carry small science things in my pockets - magnifiers, bugs in plastic cases, a tiny dried seahorse.  To make conversation with the other kids.

It went over poorly.  But now I can nerd out as an artist and sit at my own lunch table.

I died and came back
as a tiny seahorse
swaying in the seagrass
listening to music
on my tiny headphones.
It’s always Sunday afternoon now.
