The Lost and Found Show: Souvenirs & Mementos

July 17, 2014

Sometimes Souvenirs aren't about remembering your past.

 

First, a huge thanks to Porcupine Hugs for the generous prizes, as well as the discount cards Dorkys handed out after the trivia section. You did grab a discount code card, right? No? Ok, go to Porcupine Hugs and use the code LOSTFOUNDSHOW to get 20% off. The code is good for a few months (expires the last day in October, 10/31/2014). 

Please see The Lost and Found Show website for more information about this show. While you're at it, why not head over to the show's Facebook page and follow the show to get updates about the next one?

At this point, I feel obliged to admit that whenever I think of the word Mementos, my mind automatically abbreviates it to Mentos.

 

Yes, the mints. No, I have no idea why.

 

I ran across a memento of my own recently: a writing folder I hadn't used in a long time contained a single twisted burgundy string. When I saw it, I immediately knew it was from a futon. The futon was not terribly remarkable, but the cat who once tore strips off of it was. Of course I discovered this right before I was randomly given a poem by a fellow who hunts for his wife's hair after she died - and I captured some of the same cat's fur when he split for states of consciousness unknown. Though to be fair, states of consciousness unknown is probably pretty accurate for a cat regardless of existential status.

 

The deal with my pictures, and using them:

If you are in the picture, use it for any personal purposes you want to. Any performers can use pictures they are in for any self promotional purposes they like. If you want to do something with any of my pictures and money changes hands for (or because of) the picture, you need to talk to me (i.e. no commercial use, other than self promotion, for anyone appearing in the picture). If you’re not sure, ask.

Do not alter my images, especially the watermark. It’s how people can find me if they like what they see. If you need a copy without the watermark for something, talk to me.

Crediting me, listing my website and/or linking to me on Facebook on each picture is appreciated.

If you tag me on a post where you upload multiple pictures, they don’t save on the pictures and the creator/creation link gets lost. If you do it on each picture description (copy and paste works), they skip happily down the years, hand in hand. Or something. If you make one of these your profile picture, be advised Facebook essentially creates a new copy that is not linked unless you specifically tag me on that new copy.
 

All that said, there are two albums:

  • Free for personal and self promotion use versions with discreet watermarks that should not be removed are available on Facebook. Please note that because of Facebook restrictions on album sizes, there are two albums, split at the break.
  • Full size versions and prints are also available for purchase here on my website. Coffee mugs, t-shirts, hell I'm pretty sure they'll even print your visage on the side of a sprinting T-rex if you pay them enough to do it.
