Shadow Art Fair 2006
The first annual Shadow Art Fair
was held at the Corner Brewery
, Michigan today, 15 July, in the year 2006.
A word about the name of the town. A postmaster in Ypsilanti was amused by the varied spellings of the name of the town that he saw on various pieces of incoming mail. He kept a list. The most amusing, in my opinion, was this: Slippery Shanty
I guess you had to grow up there, to know how funny that is. Anyway, the Shadow Art Fair was a great success. It is going to put Ypsilanti back on the map. After the General Motors mating dance
, the place will be known as the world's premier center for indigenous art. All the French corporate types from Renault will be walking around in berets and Iggy Pop t-shirts, while the salarymen from Nissan will head down to the Dreamland Theater
Iggy Pop was born in Ypsilanti
The "shadow art fair" idea was dreamed up by the notorious liberal entrepreneur, Mark Maynard
If I had been thinking, I would have gotten a copy of Spiders in the Blood Supply
. Maybe next year.
I almost bought a pair of Ypsipanties
, but I knew I could lose my job if I bought those and then blogged about it.
The reason the photo is aimed a little high is that there were Ypsipanties on the table, and I did not want them in the picture. You never know what might happen if Alberto Gonzales happened by MouseMusings and saw a picture of Ypsipanties.
