The beginnings of a movement...

I love the color orange. Where some see brash and loud, I see bright and ALIVE. So it's with particular interest that I study the strangely orange snack foods of the world. These tasty foods appear almost fluorescent in their orangeness, and I think we are indeed lucky to live in the same world where snacks are so bold!

These snacks deserve their own day of celebration as far as I'm concerned! Perhaps a day of eating and drinking only orange foods and orange beverages! Join with me now, and let us plan just such a day! Hoo-rah for orangeness-ness!

Edit- I wasn't thinking today would be the day to celebrate orange food, although rereading my post that's how it might seem. I was thinking more in the near future, after a little planning. I've now decided that I'm going to choose one day soon to eat nothing but orange food and drink orange beverages.

More Tragedy at the Circus

There are many people in the world who have jobs that are dangerous. If they have a bad day, it's really a bad day. I'm glad I don't have one of those jobs.

Facebook Graffiti Wall

I've been distracted lately. Here I am, supposed to be working on new images for a book (and I have been working very hard), but I've been doodling rough animations with the graffiti application on Facebook. I find it just soo much fun, and I really have to stop!

I'll put a notice on my sidebar soon, but all Bent Objects visitors are welcome to be my friends there. Here's my page- Terry Border.

And here's the page where you can view my crude animations and such-- graffiti. Two of 'em are marked "press replay" and are somewhat animated. The same for the lizard one (slightly) and the eyeball on the hand one. Nothing great, just a way to entertain myself when I'm not photographing circus peanuts.

The Circus Peanut Circus

More images of unfortunate circus peanuts to come...

For those of you around the globe who may be unfamiliar with Circus Peanuts, go here. I happen to find nothing appealing about them at all except their cheery color. Others in my house disagree with me, and gobble them up before I have a chance to use them for my blog.

Our Spoolish Love

You didn't think I'd post so soon, did you?

Edit- I opened a Facebook account awhile back, but haven't done much with it. I plan on adding some behind the scenes pics there sometime though. Anyway, it's right here.

Hello, Bent Objects Visitors...

Mr. Flower says, "Hello! It's so good to see you!"

Awww, thanks Mr. Flower!

Mr. Flower and his significant other star in an image that I made for my book. Sorry that I can't show it here, but I have to save something for you to look forward to, don't I?

Consider this a break from the Celery Saga "Experiment." People are starting to get antsy, and anxious, or just bored (maybe they don't know that there are about a half a bazillion other blogs that they can go to). That leaves me with a conundrum- When I'm too busy to make regular posts, do I stretch something out, or just leave you with nothing at all for a week? Hmmm.

Sickeningly Sweet

We now interrupt our normal programming for an "Aw, isn't that sweet" moment.

Hey! I got mentioned in Publishers' Weekly!

Can I get a Woot-Woot!?

This weeks' issue of Publishers' Weekly (the publishing periodical) gave me a mention in the "Deals" section-

The Wire

Lisa Clancy at Running Press bought world rights to Terry Border's Bent Objects: The Secret Life of Everyday Things via Sorche Fairbank. Based on Border's popular blog, the work is a collection of his still lifes using everyday objects, including scenarios such as a bottle of Dramamine falling ill, a pear looking in a mirror and despairing of its bottom-heavy physique, and Caribbean seasoning living up to its “jerk” name. Pub date is fall 2009.

So, yes, that's the date - fall of 2009. I know it's a long ways off, but that'll give us time to really do this thing right. That's also why you should let me know that you want to be on the list of peeps who want to be notified when the book is available. I know how it is in the blog world- the blog that you check out constantly for months gets forgotten when you get busy and go on to other things. So email me to say "Put me on the list!"

My contact link is on the right of this page in bold blue! Ya can't miss it!

(And yes, it's gonna take several more days for the celery saga to unfold!)

This is the kind of package of bubble gum balls that you don't see much anymore. I knew I had to do something with it. A store we wandered into had a display of retro candies. Nice and colorful anyway.
