Grow with Grubbycup Collectible Buttons (2013)

The 2013 promotional Grow with Grubbycup collectible buttons have arrived. Printed for the Grow with Us Hydroponics customer appreciation weekend – Boston Freedom Rally – Nickel City Wholesale Garden Supply (special thanks to General Hydroponics) tour. Hitting Rhode Island, Mass, New York, and maybe others before heading back to California to get back into the studio and record more episodes.

Almost half of the first run have already been given out, and only expect to have a pack or two for myself left at the end of the week.

 

Buttons 019

The first six button set features

1) I love Herb the Wizard’s Magic Potions – I’m pretty sure I’m going to change these to either just I love Herb the Wizard or just go in a different direction with these.

2) Sancho Bonsai – I like these, and one of the more popular buttons. It is clean and easy to read. Will probably keep this design for the Sancho buttons at least for a while.

3) The original Grubbycup button with the growing G logo – The first and most popular of the Grubbycup promotional buttons.

4) A crop of the Grow with Grubbycup show logo – May change the text to be larger, and tweak the purple G.

5) Grow with Grubbycup green with heart – Cute, but will likely be replaced by a different button.

6) Admit One Alphred’s Dungeon Pass – I really like the concept here, but the script came out a little difficult to read. Will likely change for the next print run.

So Gentle Readers, why the extra details about the buttons? And why point out which ones will likely not be reprinted?

Because some folks collect them. Not because they will ever be worth any more than they are now, but just for fun. By posting a chronological record with photos, descriptions and comments, I hope to make it a little more fun for those folks.

Current plan is for the next set of buttons to be used as giveaways for Gentle Listeners, but still working on the details. Until then, if you see me, don’t be shy about walking up and asking me for a button, I try to keep at least a few in my pocket for just such an occasion, particularly at events (limited quantities, while supplies last).

 

 

 

Jabberwocky (read by Grubbycup)

Growing with Grubbycup

Grubbycuo reading Jabberwocky

by Lewis Carroll

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought —
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!’
He chortled in his joy.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
