Kommune Korner

We apologize for the konspicuous lack of new kontent as of late. As we quickly discovered during the past several weeks, it's awfully difficult to kreate when you're up to your adam's apple in moving boxes. That's right, the Korner Krew has put a down payment on new communal lodgings! Our new kreationist's loft is situated a stone's throw and several hundred feet from the HQ--easily within walking or penny-farthing distance. From what we can tell, our domicile is some sort of former light industrial space. It's a fixer-upper for sure, but we've managed to partition the two forward loading bays into well-appointed kwarters and repurpose the defunct break room into a makeshift kitchen. All in all, it's the perfect rough-n-tumble, derelict setting to inspire kreativity. Plus, it has access to a railroad siding for all of our shipping and receiving needs--so no complaints there. As the new saying goes: "a family that lives together and works together, kreates together."

Photos not yet available. Turns out you have to develop film before exposing it to direct sunlight. Live and learn. Stay tuned!

Poet's Korner

Pig death.

Double rainbow.

What does it mean?

Poet's Korner

With rubble and wars abroad and oily water and joblessness at home, distress seems more or less universal. But fret not. As always, Chris Peebles has taken it upon himself to lift us all from the depths of despondency. We present you his innovative new Peeblesian sonnet entitled "Winged Infiltration." Sip:

Why have the birds built their nest in my house?
My house has small windows that are rarely open.
The door, too, stays shut most the time--unless
someone is coming or going.
How, then, did these avian interlopers gain entry
to my abode?
Somebody let them in.
But who?
And when?
And why?
Do they think my Formica needs a veneer of white excreta?
Or my carpet more downy feathers than it already has?
I like birds just as much as the next homeowner,
but this is an outrage.
Excuse me if I don't like robins in my home, or eagles,
or whatever they are.
I'm no ornithologist--I took my training in botany.

Komedy Korner

The old "Donkey in a Top Hat" bit as told by Svetlana Mendoza, Part VI:

The foreman was in utter shock: how was it already his lunch break?
"Look," he said, "this is a lot to lay on a guy. Let's talk about this over enchiladas. My treat."
"Fine," replied the donkey. "It's loud and stinky in here anyways."

Header Korner

Hello, good mutants and mutettes. If you had noticed the new manifestation of divine Kreation atop this blog and were wondering, What's the story with this?, you're in luck! Our latest header comes by way of longtime Korner affiliate and notorious street artist, Blenko. While some have construed his nom-de-plume as a reference to the anonymity of street art, or perhaps to the blank canvas that is the urban metropolis, the true origin of his/her name is much more humble. "BlendCo was actually just this brand of microwaveable chicken pot pies when I was growing up. I remember loving those things and thinking, 'One day, I too will have a name as famous as Blendco.' Guess it had a bigger impact on me than I thought."
The piece on display for you now is exemplary of Blenko's style, with a deft combination of political and social commentary, pressing the viewer to consider the political as personal and vice-versa, as well as sharks, which are fun to draw. Blenko's work has so been appreciated by the Korner enklave that the higher-ups decided to feature the 'Red Scare' character as a balloon in our inaugural Kreation Korner Thanksgiving Day parade, which will be staged at and around Central Park in New York, barring any prior reservations made my other entities. For now, take this two-dimensional rendering as a primer course in Steez.
