City of the Future: Second Class at Tam High
Gift Ideas
Image by fabola
Our after-school students at Tam High are building a City of the Future together, using arts and electronics to make a model of what our world may be like in 100 years.

In our second class, they designed the city they envision for this project and took turns discussing their ideas with each other. In their post-apocalyptic scenario, the rich are separated from the poor, who mine the sea floor and are oppressed by a government run by machines.

They also picked characters and objects for their city — some of which will be laser cut and printed in 3D. Next, they learned to solder stick figures out of copper wire, then made light circuits with LEDs and batteries. Finally, they added these lights to their futuristic homes, which they continued to decorate with gift wrapping paper, art supplies and everyday objects.

We have a great group of eight middle school students, ages 12 to 14, in this after-school class. Through this course, students will develop a range of skills, from creative expression to science and engineering (STEAM). And they will learn to create their own interactive art with simple electronics, in a playful way that makes learning more fun.

Old Wood Door Window and Stone

This is an old building up in the Rocky Mountains in Rollinsville with peeling wood on a door and old wood window and stone. This was at one time a winter summer place for skates to bait. I have been to this place many times and it is funny how all of sudden you notice something cool that has been there the whole time. www.jamesinsogna.com/Architecture/Old-Wood-Doors-Windows-…

Atlanta Laser Engraving and so Much More!

Atlanta laser engraving studios are a dime a dozen, however, our 165+ Google five-star reviews put us into a category by ourselves. We’ve earned the right to brag a little because of the quality of our laser etching and our customer service. Our reviews tell the whole story because they are written by our customers and reflect the quality and level of satisfaction they have experienced with our company. We can help you with laser engraving, cutting, marking and much, much more.

Our Atlanta laser engraving studio specializes in engraving everything from Yeti® tumblers to luggage tags and everything in between. We even stock items such as Polar Camel® tumblers, water bottles and bottle openers, magnets, name tags, cake pans and more. If you’re looking for high quality laser etching, you’ve come to the right place near Atlanta.

Our Atlanta laser engraving shop can engrave the following materials:

  • Metal (stainless steel, aluminum)
  • Glass
  • Acrylic
  • Crystal
  • Wood
  • Anodized Aluminum
  • Leather (Vegetable Tanned Only)
  • and more!

We use Epilog lasers to perform our laser etching work. These are all designed and manufactured laser machines in the USA. Our engraving is crisp, accurate and detailed. You won’t get this with home or hobby class lasers which a lot of our competitors use.

Our professional lasers are truly remarkable (pardon the pun) and perform way beyond less quality lasers in the Atlanta laser engraving market.

Ladoo from Patel Brothers on Devon Avenue
Homemade Gifts
Image by sarahbest
This is Ladoo, an Indian sweet, that is made out of chickpea flour and sort of tastes like a homemade donut hole that’s been dipped in a sweet syrup. This weekend I decided to go to Patel Brothers, an Indian Grocer on Devon Avenue, to get some bulk spices that I needed to make curry chicken crepes, and to give as gifts to foodie friends who are putting me up during my stay in NYC.

Remember the day your daughter was born? The day she blessed you with her presence. The moment she first opened her eyes as if to say, “hello world, I have arrived.” If there was ever a time to celebrate, it was right there and then.

Orca Task Force at Swinomish
Design Gift Ideas
Image by Backbone Campaign
August 28, 2018

Great welcoming action to bolster today’s Orca Task for meeting at the Swinimosh Nation near Anacortes! Two giant banners, our giant salmon and orca inflatables and orca clad activists from across the region greeted attendees.

Mumblings after the meeting are that the public is speaking eloquently, but the leaders aren’t saying much that impresses. By design, 40 stakeholder groups will never acheive consensus and their non-binding recommendations have the potential to merely camoflage a lack of actual leadership by the people with the power – but not necessarily the inclination toward making tough, decisive choices. Most important amongst such leaders is Governor Jay Inslee.

Gov. Inslee spoke these prophetic words, "As go the Orca, so go We."
It sems that in his heart he knows it is time for bold action. It is time that he get comfortable with the idea that that leadership must start with him.

The obvious, most impactful decision he can make is to remove the Lower Snake River dams. They don’t pencil out. The power is more replacable than ever despite BPA protestations. The barge transport can be replaced with rail through the purchase and restoration of service on the Camas Prairie Railroad. Irrigation and other issues are solvable. What is truly irreplacable are the orca and the chinook salmon they depend upon.

The Orca task force is not a solution, but it is a gift, in that it provides the public and advocacy organizations an organizing opportunity to build upon the clarion call to action made by orca mother Tahlequah and her pod.

Tahlequah did her part. It is time that we do ours. "When the People Lead, the Leaders Follow." So, let’s keep escalating our calls for bold and urgent action, so that Governor Inslee and other leaders understand that successful implementation of dam removal is an existential requirement for them to remain politically relevant – now – and to future generations.

Forward Together!

In our second class, they designed the city they envision for this project and took turns discussing their ideas with each other. In their post-apocalyptic scenario, the rich are separated from the poor, who mine the sea floor and are oppressed by a government run by machines.

They also picked characters and objects for their city — some of which will be laser cut and printed in 3D.

Pataphysical Time
Design Gift Ideas
Image by fabola
We spent another magnificent afternoon at Pataphysical Studios this Saturday, making art together … and playing at the edges of time.

Our visitors this week were Jim Neidhardt (now Dr. Neidhardt) and his lovely wife Denise (Dr. Now?), longtime friends of Drs. Rindbrain, Skidz and the Queen of the Desert. Jim showed us the ‘hypno-disks’ he is working on to create experiences like this surreal Duchamp film, Anemic Cinema: youtu.be/AsnhBUp7xxM?t=24s

We had a great conversation and I knew they were like-minded folks when Dr. Neidhardt and I both exclaimed at the same time the same exact phrase: “Life IS Change!”. Jim is interested in contributing to our madcap art adventure, so stay tuned. Learn more about his work at: neidhardtstudio.com/

Throughout the day, we brainstormed more ideas for our new Time Machine, while working on sundry maker art projects:
• Dr. Rindbrain and Canard put the finishing touches on their music box
• Drs. Figurine and Heatshrink prepared to assemble a theremin together
• Dr. Fabio drew a first sketch of what a time controller might look like
• Dr. Igor and Heatshrink both gave Dr. Figurine nice gifts for her birthday
• Dr. Tout de Suite considered lighting up her goggles, chose to paint instead
• Dr. Zboon discussed time travel and made a birthday card for his friend Ernesto
• Dr. Canard created a colorful zen map, inviting other doctors to art it up
• Dr. Rindbrain added more rainbow-colored lights to the Time Machine framework

It was great to stretch out to the edges of time and back again in the company of my friends.

Fire in the hole!
