"Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken!—quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!”

"And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted—nevermore!" - Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven

“Villains!” I shrieked, “dissemble no more! I admit the deed! — tear up the planks! — here, here! — it is the beating of his hideous heart!” - Edgar Allan Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart

"By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an Eidolon, named NIGHT,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule—
From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of SPACE—Out of TIME."
From "Dream-Land" by Edgar Allan Poe
As an 80s kid these VHS and audio cassette tapes were a huge part of my life. I made tons of mixtapes and taped shows over each other until they finally wore out. I still have a ton of both my audio and videotapes and use them!

Blue Poon, you left me standing alone.. Long ago in Evansville, IN, in the summer of 2022, a camper mysteriously appeared on a sandbar in the middle of the Ohio River. This camper was not only a miracle of physics, it also proclaimed itself in giant black spraypaint letters to be the "POON SALOON." It may have sunk into the river in August, but the legend of the Poon Saloon will live on in our midwestern hearts.

If you want to be a HUGE JERK and insult random passerby, this is the shirt for you my friend. I mean hey! What?! Did you just call me ugly?!? Me and my friends think it's just funny but we are also all terrible people.
Le Temps Détruit Tout means "Time Destroys All Things." But remember, this also means time destroys sorrow, pain, and shame. And from destruction, comes rebirth. That is the meaning of my butterfly perched on the skull here. Memento mori.
