WHETHER GETS PRESS !!!
The latest late-breaking news, (to me anyway) ROCKETBOOM!
Mom will be proud:
This is all well and good. But how long can I keep up the act? How can I compete with the likes of Cecily Tynan, (compare) A redheaded beauty who delivers the news with compassion and charisma to Philadelphia-area audiences; Cecily Tynan is one of the brightest and most beautiful anchors in the business, who, I have been told, has herself been told on December 11th of this year to "suck it" by the likes of the proud blogger known only as the "bella vista social club?"
Another link from a guy who's latest blog includes the phrase:
"I am now selling some back issues of Sassy magazine (for a friend, I swear!)" Thank you MAGNETBOX, for the link.

Industrial Design Project 3 : BENT
Use The New Media Center's laser cutter to etch or cut a "pattern" into a material. Bend the materials to make a new object, practical or otherwise. The BENT project is the most loosely defined project in the Industrial Design class to date. We are encouraged to play.
I chose to experiment with new materials. The laser cutter allows a cut more intricate and precise than a traditional hand cut. It uses heat to burn through or etch into a material.
The white of an egg changes consistency and color when heated. My goal is to use the laser cutter to precicely "cook" a pattern into an egg.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
A glass ashtray was used to hold the whites in place while the laser raster etched an Adobe Illustrator file of an image of Jacquline Kennedy Onassis into the white of an egg.
A thin layer of cooked egg was extracted and is in refrigerated storage.

The thing about water is that it is smarter than you. It will find a way. We rip it from it's earth mother for our own heathen pleasures. To it's mother it shall return...unless you use an O-Cell-o sponge.
The vase design concept has solidified into a representative orb structure as delicate as the game of ping-pong itself.
Using a filler of cut down sponge, I was able to hold the flower more securely while also solving the pesky leaking problem. After whittling out a dozen tiny yellow sponge pads, I had enough to make omlettes...now I am using blue.

Conceptually, I was drawn to the natural elements: earth, fire, water, air. If I could somehow lure these things into coexisting within the structure of a vase design. A votive, the rose, and the vase’s water and air would suffice.
I wanted the elements to coexist, so I started off trying to bring everything within the realm of the water. Using some cub scout science fair training, the rose was the first thing to go under, covered on top by an short overturned glass, the air pressure of which would keep the water out if kept within certain angles. The candle slid into a taller glass and found buoyancy when filled with enough water to all but breach the top surface of the votive. It soon became apparent; the candle rapidly heated the water. The rose would wither. all is lost.
However, a candle is not within a vase’s intrinsic nature. A vase doesn’t need a candle. all is not lost.
