Pimpin'

Sunday, February 24, 2008

Our buddy Jim Wright is selling some of his hand-made bowls over at Stonekettle Station. They're lovely and unique, and while technical difficulties such as the weather and an unreliable broadband connection are delaying his posting of all of the work for sale, he's made some progress, which can be found here.

Our other buddy Shawn Riley is also selling hand-made wood items over at Beastly. The last time I checked, he had not yet posted his inventory (hint, hint), but you can certainly leave him a comment in this blog and ask for what you want. A sample of his work can be found here.

Lastly, our other other buddy Shawn Powers and his lovely wife lead the youth group at their church. They're trying something new this Easter season, and leading their kids in a "hunger strike" as a fund-raising event for World Vision. I checked out the charity over at Charity Navigator, and it appears they Do Good Work, using 86% of their proceeds for program costs. Shawn's post, and how to contribute, can be found here.

Not that my readership is massive, or anything, but feel free to pimp your favorite project or soapbox issue in the comment threads. Unless you're a spammer. Then you get the Shovel of Doom™.

I want a suit like that.

Jim,

If you would wear that in public I would *buy* you that suit.

In fact, for video, I bet I could get everyone to chip in.

Thanks again for the pimping and I really want to see Jim in the suit. Let's start a fund raiser. I have three new photos on the blog. And more to come. There will also be some explanations on style and material differences between Jim's and my work. Thanks again

Michelle, put me down for a contribution to the "Jim Wright Pimp Suit" fund.

I so want to see that photo over on Stonekettle Station.

I have video equipment, and I might volunteer to fly to Alaska.

I'm just saying.

One of these days Jim might learn not to say such things around the likes of us.

Hmm... nah. ;)
