the pencil is mightier than the sword

i came across these killer pencils this morning, inspired by the great Woody Guthrie, whose guitar was his weapon in the fight for change, equality and peace.

Guthrie inspired living folk legend Pete Seeger to adorn his banjo with the words "this machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender". Pete Seeger is the coolest old man in the universe. if you don't believe me, watch this documentary.

these instruments remind us of the power of the written word and of the individual voice. never forget it, ya hear me?
