Music Songs!

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season. New Years eve was four days ago, it was fantastic. Now the holidays are over and it's time to get back to work, dammit!!
One of the things I loved about last year was discovering Garfunkel & Oates. Two absolutely adorable girls who sing brilliant songs about relationships, sex, pregnant women and ducks.
The girls, Riki and Kate, have appeared in a bunch of tv shows and movies but what I love is their music. I should warn you if you decide to check out their stuff (and you absolutely should) is that the songs contain swears which some people might find offensive.

I think Kid Robot (or someone similar) needs to get making some Blythe-like dolls of Garfunkel & Oates!




they are sickeningly adorable !
not even super-deformed Blythe eyed cartoons do them justice

Ha! On first look and listen, you would not expect their content to be what it is. First thought was "The Magic Garden" and then as I listened, it was more profound. Good stuff.

Mo is adorable! So is Dolly Parton!
Asking JBone Do you like large shapely women? If so what do you
like about them?

John Powers - When it comes to drawing I like the curves and shapes of shapelier women, for sure. I'm not sure I could pinpoint exactly what or when my appreciation came into being. Most likely my childhood -- where I was first exposed to Dolly on tv and in movies, my father's 50s era Playboys (which I would look at when my parents were out)and 80s television where bosomy women were the fashion :)

Thanks for the question.
