This guy is weird




Shel Silverstein. What a weird dude. His new book is everywhere at work. I remember really enjoying "Where the Sidewalk Ends" when I was a kid. He's got a new book out now though, and it's pretty much everywhere in the store. So, being the curious person I am, I picked one up to check it out and saw his picture. What a very weird guy. He looked like some kind of serious dramatic thespian.
I mean, art is awesome. Far be it from me to make fun of a dude who I think is pretty cool. He doesn't give interviews and abhors publicity stunts and the like. Sounds like a true rocker. THe only thing is, the majority of his audience are kids. Maybe it's good for them to see a weird, serious face looking dude staring at them on the back cover. Who knows. If Johnny Cash likes him and plays one of the songs Silverstein wrote, then I guess he can do whatever the funk he wants. But seriously, there is a time and a place for goofy artistic photos.
