Odd imagery from webcam.

I have no explanation for this image. I guess I'll know when I get to work tomorrow morning.



UPDATE: The cam had been moved to the top of my monitor. See the magnetism.

Bruce Campbell:
Actor, Author, Nerd.
Not a Little Monkey

I attended a book signing tour by Bruce Campbell. When asked, "What's your favorite movie?" instead of ripping the questioner as he had just about everyone else, he answered, "Bridge On the River Kwai. It has a great story and a great film score. Not a soundtrack, a film score. And William Holden."
Heckler: "Can you whistle it?"
Campbell: "Am I your little monkey?"

Sculpey

I bought some Sculpey brand plastic clay to make my own masks* for my Lego action figures. These are my first trial results. (The blue mask is an actual Lego mask for comparison.)



I tried to be clever and carve out eye-holes on this one. The result was not salutary.



The reverse. The knob in the middle is where they mate with other Lego pieces. It is a join peculiar to masks, designed to facilitate game play which involves knocking the masks off the action figures. It makes sense when you see the toy in action, trust me.





A close up. I made these by first creating an inverse mold of a Lego original from Sculpey. Now I can mold dozens of parts! Muah ah ha ha!!



The next step is to make designs with greater Lego-ness. Legosity? Also smaller and thinner.
