08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” 
― Jack KerouacOn the Road

This was Simon. But all good things come to an end. 

On Thursday morning of the 13th of February 2014,  the short and passionate life of Simon Binks came to an end. Simon lived his life to the full, he burnt hot and brighter than the sun. One of the most talented, craziest, happiest, and loving people I have ever known, and it was my greatest pleasure to have been friends with him as he touched all who knew him. The first photo I ever posted on deviant art was of Simon, and he was the one who put the lemonade in jazzy lemon. I love him so much, I'm crushed, heartbroken and I can't believe I'll never see him again - but just the thought of his laugh can make me smile. 

Thank you, Simon, for showing me the meaning of a passionate life. I will never forget you, you will be in my heart always.

You bet.  I was thinking of offering art or layouts for the bands you photograph that may need it. Along the lines of a pay-if-you succeed thing. Send me a note if it sounds interesting at all.
