Shameless Self Promotion – and Peeps!

Out, Out Damn Spot!

Hey everybody!  I’m back and you won’t believe everything I accomplished in a week without blogging.  Most importantly, my awesome friend Carrie had the fantazgreat idea to make a Peep Diorama.  We were planning on entering the prestigious Washington Post contest, but decided we should support our local community so we opted for the Pioneer Press instead.  The Pioneer Press Peep Diorama contest has been around 7 years whereas the Post is only in its 3rd year.  There is a nifty prize, but Carrie can have that.  I only want the glory.

So here’s what YOU CAN DO:

The panel of judges will take into account how many votes the various submissions receive.  The leading entry as of this writing has 1700 votes.  So drop everything right now, go to the Pioneer Press website and vote for our diorama – MACPEEP. In the unlikely event you think some other diorama is more deserving of the winning title you should of course vote with your conscience.  (traitor)   If you are related to me you have to vote for MacPeep even if you aren’t appropriately appreciative of our artistry and brilliance.  Remember, I have never won first prize in anything so this is very important for my self esteem.

Special thanks to Mark, Steph and Craig for their artistic eyes and helpful contributions.

Below are photo details of our diorama, additional pics are on Flickr and check out Carrie’s documentation of The Making of MACPEEP.

Thank You Thank You for your support.  Tell all your peeps!

Vote here – page 13 under “Vote”.

The Wyrd Sisters

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and tongue of sheep,
Wool of bat and blood of peep,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and owlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

    I voted and left a comment on the superiority of your peep diorama over all other peep dioramas.

      Yeah, that one is elaborate. Love “Soylent Green is Peeple” though.

      • 11. saratoday  |  March 19, 2010 at 10:02 pm

        I just now got that “Soylent” is Soy + Lentils. Duh.
