What have we been doing all this time we haven’t been blogging?
We’ve been lying on beaches, sipping margaritas and working on our tans.
Yeah, right. In our dreams…
No we’ve been doing the whole “working for a paycheck to pay the rent” thing. And putting together our very own ETSY SHOP!!!!
Yes thats right, we’ve got an etsy shop. We caved in to public demand and put up our very own shop. So if you need a gift for that someone special during the holidays or just need to quench that burning desire to spend a few bucks, please consider purchasing one of our amazing prints!
You’ll sleep better at night knowing you’ve supported a local artist (local in the general sense of the word. I mean, we’re both from the planet Earth I assume) and that one of our prints (soon to be YOUR PRINTS) came direct from our adventures on the road. It’ll probably still have the faint smell of stale cigarettes and dirty martinis.
Now, when you view our shop, we only have about a fraction of the photos we took up at the moment. Don’t worry; we’re uploading more and more every minute. AND when you view our WEBSITE any and all of those photos are also up for grabs. Just email up with the title and info, and we’ll sell you one of those. We’ll sell you any and all of our prints.
Shit, we’ll even sell you our grandmothers. As long as you don’t mind long nights of Scrabble and shots of Ensure.
Really. They’re mean Scrabble players.
So to conclude: ETSY
That is all
This is one of those A-Mazing prints you can purchase from our Etsy shop!
Oh wow, look at this. ANOTHER A-Mazing photo!!!

So I went for a walk today, because my pants are getting tighter and the holidays are only getting closer. But I did lunges on my walk, and I haven’t really done exercises like that as often as I should.
This was me going down the stairs about an hour later
Moral of the story? Don’t exercise. Now that track pants have become acceptable to wear in public, stick with those. Or get jeans with an elastic wasteband.
Sitting down is difficult. Now I understand why there is a need for rails by the toilets.
What a day. We’ve been waiting for this day for so long…the day when FINALLY all those automated calls and unnecessary emails will stop!
Now, I am not here to tell you who to vote for or why this candidate is better than this one. But I am here to tell you to vote. Seriously. None of this “Well, I don’t like either one” or “They are both horrible” or “I am an anarchist” shit.
You live in AMERICA. You have a civic responsibility to get out there and cast your ballot. I don’t care if you don’t like either candidate.
Write in your own choice.
Maybe your candidate will win, maybe they wont. But at least you had a say and a choice in who to pick. If you don’t vote then you have absolutely no right to complain about government or how awful you think it is.
And while I’m on a roll, even if you did vote and your person didn’t win, don’t spend the next four years complaining. Suck it up. Why waste so much energy hating the other side? Instead of spending four years fighting and complaining, suck up your arrogance, swallow your pride and move on.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m all about protesting and rioting and exercising your first amendment rights to protect what you believe. That’s what America is founded on. But also remember that there is no need to be hateful or spew derogatory comments. Compromise and kind words will be much more effective than empty threats and ignorant complaints. I guess thats my inner hippie speaking.
As for me, well I’ve already exercised my right to vote. Now I’m going to exercise my right to drink beer, eat pizza, and watch this election unfold.
“What’s that you say? Oh I’m sorry. I can’t hear you over the sound of my FREEDOM”
I’m going to take this as a sign that the KodakKerouacs and all of our photographic fabulousness was just too much for New York City to handle.
Hurricane Sandy is hurling through the East Coast as we speak. Rather, as I type. I hope everyone was able to get out safe and sound. If you are staying put because you honestly think you can go up against a hurricane, then I hope you can swim.
If you remember per our last post, Valerie spent the weekend in NYC attending a photo conference. She had a flight home Sunday that was cancelled or delayed or something. I’m unsure because when I asked her if she was able to get out of the city before the hurricane the only response I got was:
“Renting a car. Driving back. Ugh”
This was yesterday afternoon and she was slated to work this morning. I know she got back safe, but I don’t know any thing else from how the weekend was, or what time she got back. I’m sure she’s in bed right now, passed out from the fun and excitement of the conference, and the thrill of fleeing from the city. But she’s back safe and as soon as she gets her proper 16 hours of sleep, she’ll be writing a post of her adventures and how she landed us a book deal (Hopefully. I mean, I still haven’t had a good talk with her. For all I know, she skipped the photo conference and partied on the upper east side with Jake Gyllenhaal all weekend).
” Where have you guys been?”
“What have you been doing?”
“Are you ALIVE?”
“Or do you just like to ignore us??”
Calm down people. Below lies the questions to all of your answers. And some giggles too.
So, we’ve just changed our whole book proposal idea around, upside down, sideways, back ways, and every which way. And we have nine days left to create it.
Maybe I should give you some background information.
We haven’t been online much lately (our bad) because we’ve been CREATING A BOOK PROPOSAL. AHHHHH!!!!!
Exciting isn’t it? And damn stressful too. We’re creating a book proposal to send to publishers so they can see how awesome our art is and publish us. Yay!
A proposal consists of explaining what your book is about, why they should publish you, how the world cannot survive another minute without a book like yours, and a few sample chapters.
The proposal needs to express:
-how serious we are about ourselves (Oh dear)
-how passionate we are about our work (We make love to it every night)
-how individual our book will be (We’ve honestly never met anyone like us. Really. Not even close.)
-how awesomely talented we are (Andy Warhol is quite jealous in his crypt)
But of course, the KodakKerouacs being who we are, we have decided to change the entire format of our book design and proposal. And we have nine days to write it out, design it and print it.
Well, Confucius say the path to success is lined with empty coffee cups and bloodshot eyes.
