    Thanks for restoring my faith in Pearl Jam Fan Humanity today.  I had read so many moronic posts I lost it there for a while.  ;)

    Seriously -- so awesome that you had fun with the fans on these and the artist contacted you.
    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    Thanks @jjflash....by the way, Steve Thomas did not contact me as a result of a restraining order going back a few years when Mr. Thomas wanted to make a commemorative poster for my 40th birthday...He sent me a mock up of the poster which included, in no particular order:

    1. Me
    2. Lazy-boy recliner
    3. Basement motiff (as an aside...I don't even have a basement)
    4. Pyramid of empty Natural Ice beer cans
    5. Thomas the Tank engine track and cars set up....as if being played with (in an odd twist)
    6. Mounted deer head with antlers holding up Depends diapers 
    7. Pile of unpaid bills
    8. Shag carpet in the colors of the original Tampa Bay Buccaneers (I don't live in Florida or like the Buccaneers)
    9. Spaghetti-O's cans strewn across the room 
    10. Stacks of old Ranger Rick magazines

    There were numerous other cultural references that flew far, far over my head...but that Mr. Thomas thought were just hilarious.  I filed both a "cease & desist" and a restraining order....after hearing my arguments, the judge crossed out Mr. Thomas' name and wrote in mine.  In hindsight, I don't think the judge was wrong.

    XOXO

    Would you be interested in selling me all the AP variants?  
    Nope.

    You can have access to them all for free.  You just need to take them to a printer.  Probably cost $20 depending on the size and the paper.
    It's my gift to the entire Pearl Jam community.

    Ozzie Crazy Train Variant 
    Seriously... that's the last one.

    Only one made.

    Poster drop at a Chinese restaurant on 13th St. You have to finish the all you can eat buffet and then do the dishes.

    It is stored flat on a bed of rice and surrounded by massage therapists. You have to last 45 minutes without orgasm while they lick duck sauce from your butthole.




    I made the mistake of reading this while on a conference call, and I almost lost it before I could hit mute.

    My 4 year old son saw this one and lost it - “Daddy! It’s Brewster!”

    Thanks for making his day as well :)

    You guys wanna hear some other crazy shit that goes back to these posters?

    A guy from the 10c Facebook page started a GoFundMe to raise money to send me to Boston.   
    They raised $755!!!!!

    It's enough to pay for two tickets for Sunday night... two plane tickets... and three nights at an AirBNB!  
    THEN.... get this shit!!!! 
    Another guy GIVES me two tickets FREE for Tuesday night!!!   
    THEN Steve Thomas the artist emails me.... I ask him if I were to design one for HIM what would he request.  He says Dune.   I make the poster and ask him if he would sign it... and now he's going to sign one of them to be auctioned for charity off at the Wishlist Party.

    The funny part about that invisible jet is that I did actually have to photoshop out the invisible jet which sounds bat shit crazy to say out loud. 

    But I pulled this from the old TV show, and if you'll remember... Wonder Woman's invisible jet in the show had white lines around it.  So I had to take those out to make it funnier.

    HAHAHAHA.  I would never thought this if you didn't say it.  Just put Wonder Woman in...easy....Nope, needs the invisible jet too.
