"Today the hissers hissed at us and we were not phazed."

The "XOXO" Special Collector's Edition is made up of ten boxes housing a signed copy of the "XOXO" book and one drawing. Each box is hand painted with one or two words each. When all boxes are placed together in a row they spell out the phrase "Today the hissers hissed at us and we were not phazed."

Kottie Paloma is keen at looking at society and creating poignant scenarios depicting the modern times in which we all live in. The actual phrase for the boxes was created after Kottie watched a recent American news clip about the American economy. In the clip, the host of the news report was interviewing a Foreign Trades expert. They were discussing the economics of allowing Chinese firms to purchase American businesses. The discussion between the host and the economic expert started to get a little intense. Suddenly and unexpectedly the host of the show lashed out at the expert by hissing at him like a snake; to Kottie's disbelief, the economic expert wasn't even fazed. It was as if it was a normal situation for him to deal with. For Kottie, it was one of the strangest human interactions he had seen since living in the Crack and Heroin infested neighborhoods of San Francisco, California. Especially strange as it happened on live T.V... This interaction inspired Kottie to create the sentence for the special collector's edition. By changing the spelling of the word fazed to phazed. When spoken, this creates more of the snake like sound the host of the show made when hissing at his guest. In two weeks' time, the video clip went viral on Youtube and the host of the show was forced to make an on air live public apology for his snake like behavior.
