DEVOtional 2007

I got about an hour and a half of sleep last night, I've eaten nothing since Friday but a bowl of cereal, a burger, chocolate, and Jack and Coke, my throat hurts from shouting and screaming, and the hearing in my right ear is still a little fuzzy. I'm exhausted, exhilarated, and still grinning like an idiot. Holy shit. That was quite possibly the most fun I have ever had with my clothes on.

What went on? Easier to ask what *didn't* go on...Live theremin playing to DEVO songs by KRK Ryden, who is an absolutely wonderful guy, excellent goofyness from the Tater Blasters, extreme aggro shout-singing and weight training from Baditude, rants from Rev. Ivan Stang, bluegrass renditions of DEVO tunes from the Mutant Mountain Boys, a fabulous set of songs from The Spudboys, Jerry Casale singing a few songs with the Spudboys (!), and, last but not least, DEVOtional songs, i.e. Spuds from amongst us singing DEVO songs with the Spudboys as backup. It was awesome.

What can I say, I met tons of great people and had a blast. I need to go have a nap now, though. Pictures will be up later this week.

Skully Puppet

Eight tubes of superglue later, along with an entire bulk pack of beads, sculpey, various odds and ends, an entire series of Blackadder, a season of Black Books, and all the cutscenes and shorts from Sam And Max: Season One, and here it is, the first Skully Puppet. It's as sinister looking as I could have asked for and is alarmingly fun to play with. Haven't come up with a name yet, but I'm sure one will turn up.

Edited; I took some better photos with Grey's camera...

Skully Puppet

Bottom jaw is beaded and whole skull is now attached and secured to the center pole. The poles for the hands are ready, and the hands themselves are ready for beading. Once that's finished, I stitch the body together, and hey presto, it'll be done. Photos to follow.

Skully Puppet

The beading is done on the upper portion of the skull now, and tomorrow I'll start in on the beading of the lower jaw. The jaws will open and shut by means of a cord when I'm all finished.

This kid. FTW.

I am reasonably certain that something like this is going to happen to me someday. And it will be awesome.

The new aquisition

I didn't catch the significance of the tiger rug until after I took the pictures (I was really just looking for some contrast as my carpet is brown, too) but it turned out very British Raj, which is kind of amusing.

It does indeed work- and very nicely, thank you.
