Too long gone

It's so good to see you!

Rather than my usual complaints about overwork and promises I usually can't keep to give my blog more lovin', I'm going to share my latest inspiration. It's a small volume by wordsmith extraordinaire Arthur Plotnik called (ready for this?) Better Than Great: A Plentitudinous Compendium of Wallopingly Fresh Superlatives. Inspired yet? No? Then check out his Superlatives of the Week here or better yet, order one for your own self here. His bone-brilliant brio will put the badda-bing into your writing.

Or not. But you'll sure have fun cranking open his vault of superlatives. Here are just few to get you started. Imagine incorporating these into your art:

greatness laminated
deathlessly brilliant
unadorned perfection
cryogenically cool
an alphabet of talents
heart-chafingly poignant
the caterpillar's kimono

I'd love to hear from anyone who does use Art's book in their art or writing. Inspiration like this is so three-ply charming it shouldn't be wasted.
