Isn't there an 'Ask Jeph' thread for this?

I'm not 100%, but I could swear that during a comment on tattoos he said the birds things was personal. Like as in not wanting to tell every person with access to the internet.

Could be wrong. *shrug*

It's because birds is magic.

They can fly 'n' shit.

Seriously though, of all Jeph's creations, Yelling Bird is probably the only one I'd really miss not having in my life. I also wouldn't be so sure that Jeph likes birds for some personal reason he'd rather keep secret; it's just as likely that it's a personal preference that he can't even really completely explain. The only time I remember him mentioning birds and tattoos in the same post was when he said that he doesn't worry too much about his tattoos and instead goes with things that make him happy. Sometimes we just like what we like; if you asked me why I like green better than purple I'd be hardpressed to come up with an answer more complicated than "I dunno, fuck you, I thought it was cool."

The most common reason for association with birds is the need for freedom, like you can just fly away. It's a bit of a cliche, but that's kind of the point

Maybe that's it?

Jeph has said somewhere that he wonders if his local tattoo guy says, "OMG, it's the bird dude" when he (Jeph) shows up for another tattoo.

I suspect that birds, any and all, have a significance to Jeph that it would be rude to ask about.

Fuck you and fuck that song.

Jeph does not need a reason to like birds. They are awesome.

Except Seagulls. They are not awesome, except when you get them to fight over food covered in hot sauce for your enjoyment. "that's right! Fight! Fight for my amusement and leftover nachos! Fight to the death I say!"

I suspect that birds, any and all, have a significance to Jeph that it would be rude to ask about.

It's a pain in the ass to link directly because it's long since been relegated to DON'T BE STUPID, but here's the post that makes me think Jeph would say you guys worry too much about this shit. Click the link for context.

 "People worry too much about tattoos. When I look at mine I don't see some DEEP PERSONAL SIGNIFICANCE or AMAZING ARTWORK THAT WILL LAST FOR ALL ETERNITY, I just see some happy little birds who make me feel good."

But here's the thing: even that sentiment is very personal. What can be more unique and individual than having a pure, uncomplicated affinity for something? For example, I like the feel of clay. I don't like making things with clay; I don't have anything I wish to say with it nor do I really have any particular interest in art. But I could probably goof around with the stuff for the rest of my life and be extremely happy while doing so. I don't want to use the stuff to communicate and it doesn't represent my connection to anything. I just like it and that's good enough. It's very zen to just accept that you enjoy something and leave it at that. Maybe it's like when Raven said that she thinks about puppies in the morning because they're fuzzy.

OK, but if we consider Jeph's birds to be the ever-static yelling bird and a bunch of turkeys (who can't fly either), that has to be some huge Freudian slip, right??

Hm, I was gonna say the same thing. But even if there's no reason, that's good enough for me, everyone has different reasons for getting a tattoo...

That song gets annoying real quick when heard 2 times a day dealing with some jackass who thinks they know how to do my job better than me, and failing. I may be unfairly linking the two (and thus the seething hatred) but I've come to loathe this song as everytime it comes on at my work, someone comes along and kills my hope for humanity.

I know it's probably not what he intended, but I like to imagine he wasn't saying birds like to fornicate, but something large and horrible cut him off, causing him to say "fuuuuuuuuck".

Like, "Birds like to... *Gigantic, 30-foot hawk bursts through his window and stares at him with malice burning in it's eyes*....fuuuuuuck.

But that's the same problem King Arthur has: "Look, if he was dying, he wouldn't have bothered to carve 'Aaaauuuggghhhh'. He'd just say it."

Then again, maybe he was dictating :P


I just like it and that's good enough.

Exactly! I feel the same way about rainbows. I wear one in some form every day, because they make me feel happy. They are the simplest thing in the world and there's no deep significance behind it, I appreciate them more than most people.

It's interesting to look at breakdowns of who has what sort of tattoo. For example, most tattoo'd sexual abuse/rape victims I know have a phoenix somewhere on their body. I find tattoos really interesting, as what someone chooses to put on their body permanently. It fascinates me, and this sounds like an awesome possible branch of anthropology. Yes?
Yeah, I know there's another thread for this, but I think this is a separate issue... about how we classify ourselves using symbols and colors, on clothes, jewelery, and in tattoos. I don't feel clothed without wearing green, and I have a friend who feels this way about owls... how about y'all?

Oh and the bird is most certainly NOT the word. Ugh. That damned song.

Maybe Jeph is, in fact, just a Jeph suit/robot being piloted by a Wren, Titmouse or Nuthatch living inside his forehead.

That might explain the small bird obsession.

Perhaps in the not-too-distant future his work will turn to a subtle blend of revolutionary politics in an attempt to prepare us for the coming of our feathered overlords.

It'd explain the unusual name as well... Kinda. Tweety McChirp would work better.
