Can We Afford This Much Despair?

Plastic and Plush - 45 min 41 sec ago

Adam Quesnell - a comedian on Stand Up! Records - is celebrating the recent release of his album "Can We Afford This Much Despair?" with the release of a toy. Stand Up! Records has teamed up with illustrator Terence Brown II, the sculpting team at October Toys, and Tru:Tek of Disart Toylabs, to bring you the 3" rtall ubber toy of your saddest nightmares - Despair.

There will be several colorways released and the big release will happen on Halloween. No word yet on pricing.

The Despair Story:

Despair is a demon from the 10th Circle of Hell; the level where people who make bad cinematic adaptations of classic toy properties are flayed for eternity. Not your average demon, Despair suffers from severe anxiety disorder and crippling depression.

Satan himself banished Despair from Hell for being a major bummer.

Cast out upon the earth in a fiery geyser of lava and tears, Despair landed in the parking lot of a comedy club that was hosting a weekly open mic night.  Despair put his name on the sign-up sheet, got on stage, and told his story. Since then, he has been punishing himself, night after night, on comedy stages of varying quality throughout the Midwest. He dances and lashes himself for audiences with hopes of selling t-shirts and CDs to drunk people who will not wear or listen to them.
