Dear Mr. Wonderful,
How did Roger Dean end up being the representative artist for the Progressive Rock movement? Why not Dr Seuss or Coop or Geiger or Escher?
Well, it could be because Prog Rock is complete crap, and those are all decent artists, but don't quote me on that. Especially if there are paying customers in the house.
By the way, have you checked out [our old CafePress site] lately? We've got new shirts and tile coasters, so we do. It's like crafts day at Arkham Asylum.
I suppose it's more that Cats in Hats represent Irresponsible Parenting, Devil Girls represent Sex, Biomechanical Aliens represent Unknowable Secrets, and Iterated Stairs represent the Paradox of Life, so what we really need is those water dragons and pyramids and stuff to represent the Fusion Groove that is keyboard noodling in the Age of Aquarius.
Here's a better idea: take two Sex Pistols albums and call me in the morning. We'll have coffee, then go deface a pretentious gallery.
IT WAS THE HEAT OF THE WONDER
Mister Wonderful Recommends: A midnight showing of the Sam Raimi Spider-Man film, attended by just yourself and a few labmates in tight Evil Dead shirts. And it's not just sleep deprivation that makes it great. So much fun, yes it is, to see J. Jonah Jameson kick ass. Enjoy yourselves, and don't forget that this Saturday, May 4th, is Free Comic Book Day at your local 4-color emporium.
