Kokigami: origami for Mr. Happy. (Not, not this. And not ninjas, either.) The sensuous practise of Kokigami originated from the ancient Japanese art form of giving beautifully wrapped gifts.

And when you finished that, why not have a relaxing game of golf-cross while your cat paints?

Burton makes me far prouder to be a New Zealander than any football player ever will.

And while I'm at it.

Burton Silver also did a fantastic comic strip, Bogor, which ran throughout my childhood. The eponymous hero was a lone woodsman who was stationed in a pine plantation with only dope-smoking hedgehogs for company. Amazingly this ran in a national family magazine (the New Zealand Listener) for years, even while stoned hedgehogs or Bogor's sexual fantasies with trees featured in most episodes.

When I own my own bookstore, Kokigami: Performance Enhancing Adornments for the Adventurous Man is SO going to be on the shelf right next to the latest Martha Stewart tome.

From the Playing page (the Pig section):

The Call: "Oink! Oink! How about a bit of juicy swill"
The Reply: "Here Piggy Wiggy! Lots of lovely warm slops just for you!"


Wow.

This is a truly eerie coincidence. While entering volumes into LibraryThing yesterday, I came across a copy of this book a friend had given me years ago. Looking through it I wondered if it might be available on-line.

For the record, none of the wrappings in my copy have been cut out. Although now that I think of it, I do have a color copier at work...

With a quote like that, you don't need nothing.

"For accurate sizing the organ should be firmly pressed against the screen image."

I'm frightened by the possibility that someone would actually do that.

I'm getting a vision of an Internet cafe right now...
