Tin Can Lid Necklace

Juli's story that came with the Tin Can Lid necklace:

This is a possibly unwearable necklace.  It was created from a tin can lid I found on Glass Beach, in Fort Bragg, Ca.  The color of the background is natural (from saltwater, sand, and whatever other funkiness is floating around out there). 

All I did was soldered around the edges (for safety) and stamp the brown bird on it.  The focal is large (think soup can) on an 18" suede cord.  I'm still not sure why I actually made it, but I liked the lid.

Nik's Story that came with Last Supper Statue

I wanted to write a story about Ugly Baby robots, tons of them, like Terminator 4, and - like Doug - they didn't talk. They just fired their lasers and turned everyone into Shower Art. Then you would trade them out to other planets and get all sorts of crazy and weird stuff. But the swine flu isn't helping the brain to work.

Nik's Story that arrived with the Glitter Cat:

I have a corpse named Lucky that I make everyone pose with when they come over. He was traded to be by Kevin Klemm of Girls and Corpses magazine. He's named Lucky because he was the leprechaun corpse from the March issue. I dream of one day luring Rosalie out to California so I can add to my collection of photos called "Victims of Lucky Harms".

Nik's Story that came with Lost Cock:

When I was in summer camp I was pee shy. Our camp guy counselor whatever asked all of us before a long hike "If you have to go - go now!". I, being shy, tried to hold it, I'd just pee at midnight when everyone was a sleep, that was my plan.

Nik's story that came with the Undead Mosaic Clown Painting:

I used to be a clepto. I stole anything and everything. I even fit a giant stuffed monkey up my sleeve once. It got so bad I'd walk out of stores clicking and clanking with half the store. I never got caught and sometimes I was outright sloppy.

Nik's Story that came with Super Stripey Pig:

If a painting lasts for too long around me, is about a year old or I somehow feel it's unloved I paint over it. This has happened to some paintings up to 17 times. I'm hoping one day in the future they X-ray one of them to find 16 terrible paintings underneath. It would be great, like the split horse from The Cell.

Nik's Story that I DRAGGED out of him to go with the Terror for Terror trade:

We have a show in the Bay Area called Creepy Kofy Movie Time. They show bad movies from the 50's, 60's and 70's, it's a late night horror show hosted by Balrok and No Name. I've been on TV before and most places either have sandwiches, fried chicken, finger foods, etc - Creepy Kofy has a keg. Actually a kegerator (a fridge specially designed for kegs!)
