Bummo KISS


This is my concept sketch for a new member of KISS. It's a KISSafied cross between Emmett Kelly's Weary Willie and Pete the pup that Joe McGrath named "Bummo." I was going to dress up exactly like this and approach Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley when they were recording next door. I was hoping that they would accept me as a new member/character of KISS. I was even willing to be flexible about what instrument Bummo would play. Washboard? Cowbell? Synthesizer? This was my best career plan yet...until Gene and Paul ate our Uncle Eddie's* Vegan Cookies without asking. I changed my mind after that. As a result, the world will never get to see Bummo in real life. ;(


*Not to be confused with this Uncle Eddie.

Well, it was a good idea. But pretty much noone eats my vegan cookies and gets away with it. They don't deserve Bummo.

Good idea, but sad we'll never see Bummo. It's like totally intelligibel, though.

It's good to read new blogs by you, as well. I kinda missed them.

lezah said...

Aw. Poor Bummo. He would have been awesome.

I second the cowbell.

The Con said...

Because we'll never see Bummo... I vote the Tar Pits.

More cowbell. :]

ciao amelie said...

I can't believe those jerks ate your cookies. :(

Gillian said...

cowbell FTW. :DD
and i missed your blogs horribly. you should blog more often. =]

No Bummo? What a shame. Oh and poor cookies. They belong in your stomach, not theirs.

mapleton said...

Too funny! Maybe I'll be Bummo for Hallowe'en.

RosesAreBlue said...

Poor Bummo. May he rest in peace in rock and roll heaven.

GermaricanMix said...

If you ever end up in Kiss I don't think the world could handle the awesome.

And what's up with other celebs always stealing the vegan treats? hasn't that happened a few times before?

Katie said...

Come on Hunter, even if you don't want to be Bummo in Kiss because of the band's thievery, Bummo would make a great Halloween costume. Consider it.

Sad day! Bummo would've been awesome! Too bad they just HAD to eat your cookies!

Nice to see a new blog from ya, missed reading them. <3

See, look at Bummo and what his stage presence represents, the eating of his cookies should be the fuel for his musical drive...

Karlye said...

What a bummer, he's so awesome. Shame on them for taking your cookies!

panzy said...

Bummo is too good for KISS, they should have considered who the cookies belonged too!! what a shame we will never see Bummo again. :(

I loved the idea!! :D

Chiaroscuro said...

They ate your vegan cookies without asking?! Those jerks! Oh well, their loss. They don't deserve Bummo.

GabyBoop said...

It's a bummer that Bummo won't see the lights of the stage... but please reconsider your decision, the cowbell is a great instrument!!!

Do you remember "Don't fear the reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult? *nudgewink*

Cowbells and Psychedelic (like your iphone, lol) rock do get along.

Gene and Paul ate your cookies? Last time you were in the studio didn't Paris Hilton eat Davey's birthday cake? Maybe you should keep your food in a secured area.

As for Bummo, he would just be an employee of Gene & Paul and never rake in the real money.

chaoskitten said...

i never knew you were so artistic Hunter!

there is no excuse for them eating those vegan cookies! its totally KISS's loss to lose you! :)

although, i do think a cowbell would add quite well to their music! XD

I wonder would there be an epic battle between KISS and the other members of AFI to win you back? i can totally see Davey, Jade and Adam on their noble steeds in full body armour ready to do battle! XD
or alternatively, AFI could just pick the lazy option by pushing KISS into a nearby pool and dragging you back to the band by the ankles! LOL!

Chris said...

Ha ha, total bummer man :P

Racquel Valencia said...

Oh KISS. I think it's time to give up the ghost.

As far as I'm concerned, KISS = James Joyce. Interesting artifact, not worth paying money to experience viscerally. Would I shell out $150 to hear Joyce drone out some of the Aeschylus-style frog croaks in Finnegan's Wake? Hey now, just 'cause I was born in the morning doesn't mean I was born THIS morning.

cilliii said...

Hunter, do you know what just came to my mind?
That you want(ed ?) to make bass the most popular instrument this year. You should design a bass. That would totally help. And write a bass-for-selfstudy book. [I hope you get what I mean..]

LynellMarie said...

Omgsh, What if I made a Bummo shirt and wore it in front of KISS? Haha, my dad likes that idea.
I liked the idea of making a new KISS member anyways. I say he should play cowbell so Christopher Walken can yell at him, "I have a fevah! And the only prescription is more cowbell!"
And shame on KISS for eating your food!

havokisthecure said...

hahahaha love it Hunter...he looks sad, maybe he is not that good with the girls as Paul and Gene are hehe

NDriver said...

You should totally dress up like that for an AFI show.

chaoskitten said...

i agree with that person! :D

ZipperxZombie said...

Uncle Eddie's Cookie are pretty rad but I don't think, I'd be super upset over losing them. I would freak if someone ate a bag of my Mighty O Donuts.

Hanako66 said...

ha!

...well look whose blog I just found!

still hilarious:)

hope you are well Hunter!! ~Aline

GiGi said...

It sounded like a solid plan. Poor cookies. :(

Just thought that was funny...too bad about Bummo though!
