Google glitched the other day, and for a moment I truly knew fear.
I discovered that last “news letter” while going through some old emails. I sent the whole thing to my sister during an email exchange that was not even remotely about moss.
Hi it’s Will Mossman with your monthly Moss News Letter!
Boy oh boy, fellow “Mossers,” peak moss season is drawing to a close. How sad. Sad time for Mossman. Where did January go? But what a fine moss season it has been! Thanks to the frequent rains and the mild winter, our moss season was nearly TWICE as long as regular season, so perhaps we should be counting our blessings instead of bemoaning our losses. Or should I say…mosses.
The New England Penny Moss did especially well this year. As you all know, Penny Moss grows especially well in colder environments, so New England’s weather really let’s this moss blossom. Just kidding, mosses don’t blossom. They aren’t flowers, silly.
In fact, fellow “Mosser” John M. of New York wrote in to tell us his moss garden was simply overflowing with Penny Moss. What a lucky guy. John M. said that he was able to sell his excess moss at the local farmers’ market. Well! I guess a Penny Moss saved is a Penny earned. Ha ha! Ha. Haha. Ah. Ah. H. hhhhhhhh.
Now I guess I should stop beating around the bush (or moss patch, as it were) and announce this year’s Most Promising Mosser. As you know, this award is given out one of our younger members who shows the most potential to really “shake things up” in the moss community. Not to brag, but not so long ago, I was winning this award myself. Look at me now! Just look at me.
It sure was tough to choose this year’s winner. There were so many great candidates to choose from. We had over sixteen people enter this year. That’s almost a record!
But without further to do, the winner. This year’s winner of the Most Promising Mosser goes to…..(drum roll please)……Huttsy Geldman!
Huttsy’s has been growing moss on abandoned buildings in his home town for several years! He harvests the moss at the end of every season and donates half to the local Mosses in Need Foundation and uses the other half to sew together delightful coats for the children. Mosses entry was chosen not only for its creativity, but also the fact that Huttsy’s mossing has helped foster a since of community in his hometown. Way to go Huttsy! What a guy. What a guy. (As part of the award, Huttsy will also receive a lifetime subscription to Moss Time Weekly and an assortment of moss-scented bath salts.)
Well, that’s it for this month’s installment! Until next time, remember…A rolling stone gathers no moss, so stop your tossin’ and get to mossin’!!!
While editing The Bryson Hotline, I made this accidental album cover. This would be from their first EP.
I guess I’ve spoiled where the chicken is…this stays between us. Go click on it for a surpriiiiiiiissssse.
When editing the video I accidentally made the explosion negative. I looked like a Conan O’Brien poltergeist.
A new video! This is actually my family, and I cannot believe they agreed to do this.
Also, if you find the chicken in the video you will be treated to a secret something! (Have annotations turned on)

My friend Kayla has started a new comic/game. I help with it by giving commands to the protagonist. It’s a Roller Derby Horror-Comedy. You should check it out!
While doing color correction for the last video, this album cover got created by accident.
A video I made with my sisters. My older sister has a Tumblr as well. Check it out!
