The Terry Bakery Sign

…the sign was missing the last time I was on Michigan Ave. in Ypsilanti, but I think I heard it was going in for renovations. I hope, because, great.


I was thinking at first that the sign depicts a giant rolling pin wielded by ordinary human bakers, but then you look in the window of the Terry Bakery, cruelly, jarringly cluttered-decorated? with 67 completely empty cake stands, like it’s some kind of a… cake stand store instead of a bakery… it becomes evident that they must, indeed, employ tiny, tiny bakers, as their meager stock of crullers & fritters is very small indeed, and takes up in total only about one sixteenth of the giant 1960’s glass bakery display case. I blame Popular Modern Carbohydrate Avoidance Syndrome.


About nitrovonborax

The Mighty Arthammer of von Borax strikes the Anvil of Universal Consciousness, forging Iconic Singularities of Metaphor. Nitro von Borax is widely recognized as the natural heir to the crumbling facade of an empire that Thomas Kinkade built with massmarket hack-retouched cottagey papscapes, which glow as though lit by pernicious chip-grease fires within and trigger pleasurable dissociative transport to the plebian viewer. Mr. von Borax, known to his discerning, sophisticated & politically progressive fans as "The Painter of Sprinkly Sparkles," pulls inspiration from Betty & Veronica BOTH, stolen travel brochures & comic books, Martin Denny & Italian Giallo Movies to visualize and manifest pure unfettered awesomeness for your astral excursions. His portfolio resonates at a frequency only bats can hear.
