Tower of Babel

Standard

Black and Blue or White and Gold?

 

 

Yanny or Laurel?

 

 

Moron or Stable Genius?

 

What in the world is going on here? Why do we see (and hear) the world so differently? Are we having trouble agreeing with reality? And why are there only two versions of reality? Have you ever heard someone say that they see a red and yellow dress, or that they hear Richard, or that Trump is a normal, mild-mannered individual of average intelligence?

Allow me to postulate a hypothesis. Think about this…the human brain consists of two hemispheres. That’s right, I said two. Do you get my drift? Are you picking up what I am putting down? Are you getting the gist of it?

Bipolarism.

 

Bird Smirk Business Card

Standard

On a daily basis, my CafePress shop, “Bird Smirk Creations”, is about one in a million things available on the internet. And that might be a very generous assessment. What are the odds that somebody is going to come across my site? That’s right…about one in a million. Therefore, I have designed a physical counterpart to the digital Bird Smirk. The Bird Smirk business card.

I am thinking about purchasing 500 business card magnets and plastering them all over town. I hope it is not illegal. My theory is that people will take them and stick them on their refrigerator. On the other hand, if they don’t take them, they will serve as advertising… like a tiny, tiny billboard! Let’s see what happens, shall we?

Bird Smirk Custom Creations

   Very recently, Melissa e-mails me and says, “Hey Bob. Could you put the Poison-dart Frog design on a mug for me?” I said, “Okay”, and then she buys it and is happy. Be like Melissa. Melissa is happy.

   I will put any design of mine onto any CafePress product you would like! It’s not that hard. Just ask! I have a lot of designs and CafePress has a lot of products. Mix and match!

What is this? What do you see? What is your first impression? What, exactly, is going on here? What do you say about playing a little game? Just describe what you see or feel. It can be an entire paragraph, or one single word. Just respond with something, please.

There is no “right” or “wrong” answer. There is only an answer. One answer.  Yours.
