Inspiration, Religion, Polytheism, and Cement Animal Sculptures

OK. I confess to letting everyone down. I relapsed. As you may know from previous posts, I announced, indeed I proclaimed, last year that I was going “cold turkey” – although in this case I suppose I should have said “cold elephant” – in regard to and vis-à-vis my spiritual attachment to cement animal sculptures. I even publicly (on this very blog!) renounced and forswore any … Continue reading Inspiration, Religion, Polytheism, and Cement Animal Sculptures

A Thanksgiving Card from the Cement Elephants

Happy Thanksgiving. Bumbastories has already posted this Thanksgiving Greeting from the cement elephants twice, but what the heck. On a serious note, it is incumbent on us to mention that Bumba has maintained a long abstinence from all spiritual contact – and indeed any and all forms of communication – with any and all cement animal sculptures. See cement animal sculpture compendium for full description of Bumba’s semi-heroic, but … Continue reading A Thanksgiving Card from the Cement Elephants

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from the Cement Elephants. Truth be told, these models of Ice-Age mammoths are made of plastocene not cement. They stand proudly outside Los Angeles’ magnificent Tar Pits Museum, which is a wonderful place and you ought to visit as soon as you can. However, in my wicked past, I did a whole series of these tongue in cheek (or trunk in cheek?) cement … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving

My personal quest for inspiration, the temptations of idolatry, and eating all your vegetables

Earlier this year, in a sort of New Year’s Resolution, I formally swore off all contact – social, spiritual, or otherwise – with anyone who was a cement animal structure. After nearly a year of dependence, indeed an addiction to cement elephants (see Cement Animal Sculpture Compendium), I finally realized that I would never obtain any sort of wisdom or spiritual guidance from beings or … Continue reading My personal quest for inspiration, the temptations of idolatry, and eating all your vegetables

HAPPY JULY FOURTH from The Cement Elephants (AGAIN)

With no apologies Bumbastories would like to re-post an Independence Day message from last year when we visited with the cement elephants for inspiration (Click on Independence Day Message to see). Please consult the Cement Elephant Compendium in the Library Section (Click on the little square in the upper right hand corner to open the Library) for additional inspiration. Meanwhile, a HAPPY JULY FOURTH TO … Continue reading HAPPY JULY FOURTH from The Cement Elephants (AGAIN)

Going Cold Turkey on Cement Elephants

I had to do it. There was no question about it. My “psychological dependence” on animal sculptures was causing me harm. It was clear that I needed to forswear any further association with the cement animal structures. This obsession with cement animal structures, this reliance on them for wisdom and guidance, this obsession/addiction was destroying me. Everyone – even the lifeless, brainless animal sculptures – … Continue reading Going Cold Turkey on Cement Elephants

The post Thanksgiving Blues, a wise-assed cement elephant, and a song

It was a couple of days after Thanksgiving, and I was feeling blue again. So sad and blue did I become that I went in search of wisdom and advice from a cement animal structure. Yes. I went to consult with Franklin, the cement elephant so highly renowned and admired for his pachydermal perspicacity. As I approached the great cement pachyderm, he spoke to me. … Continue reading The post Thanksgiving Blues, a wise-assed cement elephant, and a song
