Where the Sidewalk Ends

By | Books, Music | No Comments

Where the Sidewalk Ends turns forty! Celebrate with this anniversary edition that features an eye-catching commemorative red sticker. This classic poetry collection, which is both outrageously funny and profound, has been the most beloved of Shel Silverstein’s poetry books for generations.

Where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein’s world begins. There you’ll meet a boy who turns into a TV set and a girl who eats a whale. The Unicorn and the Bloath live there, and so does Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who will not take the garbage out. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a place where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist.

Shel Silverstein’s masterful collection of poems and drawings is one of Parent & Child magazine’s 100 Greatest Books for Kids. School Library Journal said, “Silverstein has an excellent sense of rhythm and rhyme and a good ear for alliteration and assonance that make these poems a pleasure to read aloud.”

Shel Silverstein’s incomparable career as a children’s book author and illustrator began with Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. In 1964, Shel’s creativity continued to flourish as four more books were published in the same year—Don’t Bump the Glump!, A Giraffe and a Half, Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?, and the beloved classic The Giving Tree. Later he continued to build his remarkable body of work with Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Falling Up, Every Thing On It, The Missing Piece, The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, and Runny Babbit.

There comes a time in every guitar player’s life, a moment that can’t be denied, a duty that must be fulfilled; performing a power jam. This week Thinkpierce releases a video version of the 6th track on the Thinkpierce Music Album, titled “High Tops”. High Tops is a non-stop romping guitar solo that I played on the same guitar as my performance of “basket case” in a 7th grade talent show. That Kramer guitar really took a beating and kept on going. Enjoy the good times and great oldies of this week’s video release, “High Tops”! Thinkpierce, Something New Every Friday!

Mixtape + VHS + ColaToday we introduce songs from the Thinkpierce archives for the first time with the release of a new album on iTunes. The songs in Mixtape + VHS + Cola are as much about the story they tell as they are about the time period in which they were created. With songs that had as much difference in the year they were recorded, as they did in what device they were recorded on, this album needed a title that put it all under one umbrella in a way that was unique as the songs themselves. Somehow when you take the words, Mixtape, VHS and Cola and add them all together, it seems to tell you everything you need to know about these songs and the era in which the majority of them were created.
