Del the Funky Homosapien, Phil LaMarr Join Forces For 'Watch How You Talk To People' Story
Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present and future regarded as a whole. For Del the Funky Homosapien, this means that minutes, hours and years have significant meaning and weight to them. In the past 10 of those years, Del and his friend, comedian and voice actor Phil LaMarr (Family Guy, Pulp Fiction) have teamed up to pen this story called “Watch How You Talk To People” for the book, Stories for Ways and Means.
The talented voice actor (I know you’ve heard his voice on Justice League, guys!) narrates the story, “Watch How You Talk To People,” which was written by Del and illustrated by Ronzo. The proceeds from the book go directly to children’s literacy. Developed from a concept by Jeff Antebi, the founder of Waxploitation, a group of artists and painters came together to collaborate on original children’s stories. In Stories for Ways and Means, 29 of those pairings make up the 350+ page deluxe art book / media project.
Unseen stories, animations, quips and tales from Tom Waits, Justin Vernon, Nick Cave, James Jean, Swoon and Anthony Lister could be yours to share with your not-so-childlike child. As those familiar with the vocal + acting talents of Nick Offerman, King Krule, Danny Devito, Zach Galifianakis can attest — this isn’t for your Disney-loving, after school playing adolescent.
In addition to the physical book, Stories for Ways and Means is a rare defined jewel in an increasingly flooded world of garbagio because it will also be a limited edition, hand-numbered, hardcover object only available for those who are winning to drink from the waters of Lake Minnetonka to get it first.
We’re excited to show you a brief tease to Del the Funky Homosapien‘s “Watch How You Talk To People,” which you can witness yourself by pressing play below.
Stories for Ways and Means seems to be a great stocking stuffer for the teen who loves a bit of edge in their reading. You can pre-order your copy from the SFWAM website and hold onto it until Christmas 2017. Ha, just kidding folks, the book should be out sometime in the new year though.
