still in the middle of things

It feels like it's going to snow again tonight. It was not the day to leave my hat and gloves at home deliberately or otherwise. I shall be cold ... tried a new route through streets on my own last night before realising that SUVs may reasonably feel that the huge fake fur coat was incitement to kerb crawling, although the skinny underdressed girl I passed smiled rather than scowled so not too fraught an area, and anyway, it's all filling in more bits of the (sub)urban map, here be pheasants, here be rats, here be urban foxes ...

Drawing competition! I want to see a laser-enabled antigrav shark! With cyborg wasps! That fly out of its mouth! And attack!

Dundee needs giant naked women! It's true, although it may not get planning permission.

There's frantic conference going on next door among colleagues. I put on headphones to preserve their privacy, discover that i-pod shuffle works OK when combined with google. I just need to type in a line of the lyrics

and go

Giant Naked Woman reminds me of the grim reclining figure at the Dome, that people were supposed to enhance with images illustrating their own humanity, blah blah...

Aw, I like David Mach (not to be confused with David Mack, who I also like). He does neat things with coathangers!

It does remind me of a similar thing done with a clear glass mannequin filled with old cotton reels, though. Can't remember the name of that artist...

I have a book of his stuff. It's *great*. Maybe it's just the concept sketch letting it down.

Oh no! Two are missing! But is it my fault or the fault of the post office?

"I took the item and made the .... WHAT???
"I opened the box a -- EH???

hmmm, I really like the swirly patterns with all the eyes, though ....

Re: pulls out the pile!
Don't panic right yet as I was keeping them in several locations around the house and may not have entirely integrated all of the piles, but I should certainly like the link to see the piece in total. I'm still dithering over what to do with it, putting it in a frame seems too pedestrian really (they've been living chiefly in a neat pile under a cheerful orange Dimetrodon, alongside other sets of cards...)

There's definitely a chill in the air tonight. Wear gloves in bed: you have to protect those fingers for the future of Comicdom To Come.
