Oops. Never posted Elefant


And there you go.

Valentine's Day stuff

So Valentine's Day is coming up in a couple of weeks, and it just happens that some of the stuff in The Rot's Love store have hearts on them. Imagine that. So guess what? I'm going to start putting that stuff on sale.

First up, iPad cases.





A red one with the spider







Another red one that's a little grungy





And yet another red one with some hand writing


All of these cases will be on sale for the lowest price Zazzle will let me, and tomorrow I'll add something else to the list.

And if that weren't enough, orders over $50 qualify for free shipping! Just enter the code FREESHIPFORU when you check out.

Obviously, The Rots love you.

Happy Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe

So Edgar turns 202 today. Or maybe he'll always be 40, as he was when he died in Baltimore in 1845.

Your choice.

Gris Grimly, one of my favorite artists, illustrated two volumes of Poe material: "Tales of Mystery and Madness," and "Tales of Death and Dementia." Tons of illustrations throughout, so it makes for some pretty good eye candy if that's you're intent when buying it (that was mine).

And, if you're keeping track, no Poe Toaster again this year. That's two years in a row after leaving cognac and roses on Poe's grave for 60 years. Maybe one of the Toaster impostors will take up the tradition permanently. That's what I'm hoping anyway.

The "19 Days of Edgar" Day 19

Jan. 19 Woo hoo! It's here! The day we've been waiting for! Well, I've been waiting, I'm not sure about the rest of you guys, but this is pretty exciting from my standpoint.

Happy happy birthday to Edgar Allan Poe, who turns a youthful 202 today. But, I guess, if you die when you're 40, you're pretty much going to stay a bit youthful forever now, aren't you. Depending, of course, on your definition of "youthful"...

But I digress.

We've been celebrating Edgar's upcoming cake and candles with sales! Isn't that the American way? Each day this month, I've posted something new and on sale in The Rots' Edgar and Chloe store, and today's something on sale was a no-brainer.

Everything!

For the next 24 hours, absolutely everything in The Rots' Edgar and Chloe store will be priced as low as Zazzle will allow. If you've missed anything on sale earlier in the month, now's your chance to pick it up as cheap as it will ever be.

And did you notice? A full moon, respectfully arranged just for the occasion.

So raise your glass (or mug) of cognac, and toast the man who remains a youthful 40 forever, in his own zombie-ish and maggot-y sort of way.

The "19 Days of Edgar" Day 17

Jan. 17 Getting ready for the big finale! Day 17, and I've been extra (extra) busy putting this one together. To celebrate the 202nd birthday of the American writer and poet, Edgar Allan Poe, I've been creating new Edgar designs and posting them in The Rots' Edgar and Chloe store.

The "19 Days of Edgar" Day 16

Jan. 16 Day 16 and three days until Edgar Allan Poe's 202nd birthday. Each day this month I've posted something new and on sale in The Rots' Edgar and Chloe store, and I'm a little excited about today's post.

Tomorrow evening around this time I'll post something new, and all the skateboards will revert to their regular prices.

The "19 Days of Edgar" Day 15

Jan. 15 Only four days left until Edgar Allan Poe's 202nd birthday. Are you stoked? Is your cognac ready? Are you a Ravens' fan? (Let's leave that conversation for a different day, shall we?)

Each day this month, and in celebration of Poe's upcoming birthday, I've been posting new items in The Rots' Edgar and Chloe store, all of which are on sale. Something new every day. I came up with the idea somewhere around writing this blog entry.

Today's something new: Ornaments




Edgar and Chloe round ornaments




Just Edgar oval ornaments




Just Chloe red oval ornaments




And a second version of just Chloe on a round ornament


As I said, these ornaments are on sale for the lowest price Zazzle will let me post them for the next 24 hours. After that, I'll be posting the next day's something new, and these little guys will revert to their regular prices.

The "19 Days of Edgar" Day 14

Jan. 14 Only five days left until Edgar Allan Poe's 202nd birthday, but we've been celebrating all month long. Over in The Rots' Edgar and Chloe store, you'll find something new and on sale every day until the big day. And then you won't. But never mind that now; that isn't happening until next week, so carpe diem!

Today's something: Aprons.





Edgar and Chloe aprons





Just Chloe aprons



You can choose from three different sizes, and if you like the Chloe-by-herself version, you can also choose from three different colors (the Edgar and Chloe ones didn't look so good on anything but white, so there you go). All the aprons will be on sale for the next 24 hours, after which time they will revert to their regular prices and I'll post something new and, as it turns out, also on sale.

I explain the whole idea of the "19 Days of Edgar" here.
