Desert Jug Band

How would you describe the desert? I'd say it's a tie between four equally undesirable things: dry, hot, dirty, and boring. The animals and plants in the desert are also dry, hot, dirty, and boring... and ugly, and unapproachable, and a slew of many other unsavory adjectives. To sum up, the desert is a dreadful place that has traded in its shade and water in favor of prickly weeds, poisonous snakes, and scummy casinos. Of all the places on the earth, the desert is the only one I know of that seems to hate me and want me dead... well, and also the ocean, I guess. Wherever you can find moderate amounts of water... that's the place for me.

Ah but you couldn't have a jug band in the ocean, could you? All those fins and tails and blowholes? It'd sound awful!

It will be interesting to find out how Canada feels about you.

Also, this is a nice picture. I like everything about it.

I just love the snake's expression.

That turtle is a great design! And I don't recall ever seeing a more jubilant snake, Awesome work!

And on behalf of the desert and all of her dirty, boring, and ugly creatures... no offense taken ;)

btw... can one really be both hot and ugly? well I'll leave that concept up to the speculation of pug lovers and George Clooney.

Man, do they got soul!
Yay, thanks for the jug band, man, I dig musical animals that never open their eyes as they play. I guess that is what "having soul" in music is.
