unposted progress

Last night I actually did finish dipping all the arms... just hardly seemed worth blogging about. Don't think I'll accomplish anything tonight though - Kill Bill just came in, gotta veg out and absorb the Tarantinian goodness! I was going to watch it earlier, but All That Jazz was on (twice). Incredibly brilliant movie!

The slip casting latex came in today too... what a disappointment! It's as thin as the dipping latex, or nearly so! Well, at least now I know.

Ended up putting knuckles on all the puppets while parts of Kill Bill were on that I'd already seen during its recent heavy rotation on TNT. Man Jeffrey, you ain't a kiddin'! That's not easy. Most of them look like mutant knuckles. I'm hoping I can fix it, at least somewhat, with another drop or two on each knuckle. We'll see. Oh, and for this I used the latex I had put the thickener in before, that turned out all lumpy. Doesn't matter whn you're just dolloping out drops one at a time.

this one's better...

Yay for the progress made
by my little knuckle head.

He could'na stop a werkin'
When he oughta be in bed.

Soon he'll be a shootin' frames
Like Uma's yellow threads.

Cosmo's bar will come to life
I'd buy Scott a beer instead.

Ah, but I recived both versions in my email! I know the differences between the first and second drafts. Hmmm... actually the only difference is she subbed Scott for Radke in the second one. It does make for a better rhythm. Whoah... what a strange word.... rhythm. So many consanents. Rhythm. I've said it too many times now... losing... all.... meaning......

Surely that can't be a real word, can it?

Rhythm

Logarhythm
