Marshmallow Bridge

So, In my Tec +Ec III class we are on the final project "Span-Tastic!" where we have to build a bridge - the first part was to build a bridge out of toothpicks and tiny, multi-colored marshmallows and then span between our desk. None of the class accomplished the task (come on! it was 36" and made of marshmallows and fucking toothpicks), but my partner and I came closest. I'll post a pic of that. Anyway the final will be laser cut (duh!). We wanted to use neon Plexiglas but it is way to expansive so we will most likely be using chipboard (yuk!). But the entire time I was building the marshmallow bridge I was singing Blondie's "Diamond Bridge" in my head...

Jennaca Leigh Davies

Jannaca sent me a link to her site - a divers mix of jewelery and art (if there is a difference between the two). Above is some of her laser cut paper jewelery - I think what sets her apart from others is her thoughtful use of color - it really is stunning. Enjoy!

Portugal. the Man - It's Complicated Being A Wizard

Quoted from from flickr:

The record was pressed on 333 copies of blue and 667 on black. Both featuring the gorgeous laser etching of the artwork on the b-side. I also enjoy that the b-side is labeled as playing at 6 6/6 RPM.

Technically it's the one right bellow, but what ever. And I think we can all admit that tigers, like The Beatles, are pretty overrated... I'm just kidding (I don't need your hate mail).

Shool Is (...)

Fill in the blank. I'm not sure what to say - nothing positive. I'm underwhelmed by my studio class and I'm looking forward to next semester knowing full well that it will be more of the same - and less time to focus on TLC - but I will do my best - so for the infrequency of my posts.

PS. I'm in the pic...
