Clever Aint Wise

Owls are a group of birds that belong to the order Strigiformes. Most are solitary and nocturnal. Owls hunt mostly small mammals, insects, and other birds, although a few species specialize in hunting fish.

Unlike folklore has it, owls aren't very smart. There are no known records of any owls having college degrees. Let alone attending college in the first place.

Other interesting facts about owls:

- Unlike their color would suggest, owls do not taste like chocolate.
- It’s a well-known fact that owls do not pay taxes.
- In ancient folklore owls are viewed as harbingers of bad luck, ill-health, or death. The biggest thing I´ve seen an owl bring is a large-sized rat.

2 Seconds Of Memory

The goldfish is a freshwater fish in the family Cyprinidae. It was one of the earliest fish to be domesticated, and is one of the most commonly kept aquarium fish.

Unlike folklore has it, goldfish do not have a memory-span of only two seconds but have a memory-span of at least three months and can distinguish between different shapes, colors and sounds. They also tend to be great subjects for tattoos.

Other interesting facts about goldfish:

- Unlike their color would suggest, goldfish do not taste like carrots.
- Unlike their name suggest, they are not made of real gold.
- It's a well-known fact that goldfish do not pay for sex.
- If goldfish would happen to have legs instead of fins and lungs instead    of gills, they probably would not have been refered to as fish.
- It is thought that goldfish have no concept of time, since there are no known records of goldfish wearing watches.

I got this message from Mehdi today, of a conversation between him and Roger which really made me laugh.

Mehdi: You ride with the Dark horse ?

Roger: Yesss Ow mighty horse rider with the caravan of black Magic and eternal wisdom to exceed in the aftermath at the afterparty of the afterlife.
Roger: I is, as we speake, kamming my hairs.

Mehdi: Kom er aan

Roger: Can I take the (from kraait) black car to the place where endless stories are being told by monke in bikini?

Mehdi: Come they fly with black crow crane, to pages of the dark book story telling!

Roger: Let's ride west toward the dying sun en breath the ray's of glory in the evening darkness of holy (shit) soulscattering death blood kill chopped roof coffin slow mortfaces of evil

Mehdi: Yeaaa!!
Mehdi: In the land of far, were the hound's of blood and hellfire with breath of endless death poison, there we will go and fight for our victory for eternal wisdom and love ( and sex with all the angels from heaven and hell and beyond)!!!

Long story short, turned out, Mehdi only wanted to know if Roger needed a lift to the shop.

50% OFF City of Ink [scoutmob]

Scout Notes: Many tattoo shops out there function like fast food restaurants. You walk in, pick something off a menu, and walk out thirty minutes later filled with regret. The only difference: a belly full of Big Macs eventually goes away. That barbed wire bicep? That’s forever, friend. City of Ink is no Value Menu tattoo shop. It’s clean without being clinical, maintaining a traditional vibe without all that grime. Every piece is 100% custom, only inked after a close collaboration between artist and client. Miya Bailey, City of Ink’s manager, insists this is the only way to do it: “This is a fine art shop, a gallery. If it’s on the wall, on your arm, whatever, it’s got to have soul.” Of course, you don’t respect the work and disrespect the talent. Each artist with CoI has a distinctive style and is encouraged to explore that, to build a reputation of their own and flourish accordingly. Just don’t get upset when they talk you out of that Tweety Bird tramp stamp you’ve been wanting.

City of Ink has been a Castleberry mainstay since 2006 when they opened their doors. In those five years, they’ve built a family of artists, each one more Positive Mental Attitude than the last. One artist told me he constantly spots passers-by peeking through the windows, and wishes they’d come in, even just to look. “I mean they wonder what’s going on here; you don’t have to pay money to look at the walls.” City of Ink is working on bringing these people through the door, hosting gallery openings and inkless walk-ins alike. They’re also looking to spread City of Ink’s influence outside of the shop, by starting a clothing brand in 2012. Miya says it’ll be a great way to promote each artist’s individual brand, and show off the diverse art among the City of Ink family. So for all the tattoo-phobic folks out there, fret not. Pretty soon even you could be rockin’ a CoI original.

Monday – Saturday, 1 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Pot Of Gold!

I had this really cool quote I wanted to start this post off with, but I can't remember what it was.
So I'll start off with a completely random quote.

"If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.'  -Clint Eastwood

Now we got that out-of-the-way, it's time for the picture section of this intellectual post.

I had this picture in line to get posted for a while, but before I could get to it Mehdi had already done the next session on it, so you get two for the price of one! Now, how's that for a deal!?

Still not completely finished, the japanese skyscraper in the back there needs a couple of layers of exterior paint.

Furthermore we had some leprechauns over all the way from Ireland.

It was off-season in rainbow-country so Gillian and her friends got a chance to leave the pot of gold unguarded and hop on over the big pond, to get Gillian's sleeve started by Mehdi.
Ironic that she works for Disney aswell.... ( get it? being a leprechaun and all...)

Gillian! If you read this, someone hacked into the bunker blog and wrote all of this! I'm innocent! And I hope you don't hurt me the next time you come over. Thanks for your understanding.
