My earworm song just played on KCRW! I am saved!

It's Fangela, by Here We Go Magic. I love it!

One Less Thing

A lady at the grocery store showed me the secret of getting the new plastic produce bags to open. Now I don't have to stand there like a dork fiddling with the darn things!

Remember how Johnny Carson would blow into an envelope before pulling out the letter? I always thought that was cool. It didn't work with the plastic produce bags, though!

On another note...

If you wanna see a very nice model of the H.M.S. Victory, dive into Raul Guzman Jr's site. Be sure to scroll down to see the surgeon operating on a guy. It's so gross!

Plastic Goo

I broke down and bought some Squadron putty at the model railroad store yesterday. I've started assembling a couple of the SF3d figures I bought a zillion years ago. The putty is to fill in some of the gaps and such-like.

Oh, and that link is to some mighty fine model-building, not MY work!

Vacuum Between The Ears

Is this guy kidding or what?

Ohhh, it's The Tube Thing. Lots of links to interesting tube n' valve stuff.

Tube Box art.

Porn And The Art Of Vacuum Tube Fabrication. A 17 minute video...

Remember, real radios glow in the dark!

I was inspired to pop the case off my LM-16 Frequency Meter so you can see the tubes

I'm afeared to put voltage on it, so you don't get to see the glow.

This is World War II-era equipment. There are more pictures on my zooomr page, if you can stand it!
