Early Birds and Verve
Gonna be tied up a bit Wednesday morning through Thursday early am, so here's a head start.
OK, sitting piggy banks . Basically, on day one I throw a fully enclosed form, like a balloon. Day 2, when half dry, I whack, cut, and add and you have a sitting piggy bank. He has a large slot in back for coins. As I say below, CUTE, but not cutesy (is that a belly button there?)
Music today and beyond---The Verve. You could say 'what a bunch of losers', because they had great talent and music and lost it all. In the early 90s Charlatans UK, Oasis and The Verve came out of England and sounded terrific. The Verve had great success with 'Bittersweet Symphony', but predictably, since they sampled a Stones tune, they lost all the money in a lawsuit then there was a sneakers ad or something and then drug abuse and arguing finished them off as a band. Great tune, great video, check out 'Bittersweet Symphony' here.
