So today's hand surgery went swell...no pun intended...so far no pain. Wheeled me in...a bunch of iodine on my arm...a whirl of the drill...and out the door. The surgery itself was 6 minutes...the metal post they put in my finger comes out in 6 weeks. I had them do a few modifications though...better, stronger, faster.
Thought a Dremel attachment might come in handy...once again no pun intended. Okay... it was intended.Hey speaking of the Six Million Dollar Man...remember the episode(s) with Bigfoot? Well, now I find out after all these years that they actually mad an action figure for him...if you recall he was really a robot.
Okay now...speaking of action figures....
deMented Toys Workshop in Missoula
coming Sunday Jan 25th. TSusan of Tsunami is helping me put together a workshop in my lil' ol town. She is also showing some of my dudes in her store as well...so if you're local or passing through stop in and see some deMented toys.
If you're interested heres some of the skinny
Island of deMented Toys
Description of workshop:
Remember the Island of Misfit Toys in the claymation epic "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer". Well that's nothing compared to what we're going to do in this class. You're going to bring all sorts of parts and pieces from a variety of toys. You round up everything from Barbies to Tonka trucks, to snow globes, to wind-up zeppelins, and reassemble them "into something rich and strange" (to quote Shakespeare's The Tempest). Don't worry if your toys aren't dismantled yet…we can take care of that…bwwwwahahahahahaha (evil laugh - in case you were wondering). Using various techniques of assemblage we will turn our classroom in to a laboratory of the weird. Barbie and Ken will never be the same….as I said before ….bwwwwahahahaha.

The place where I'm teaching the above mentioned workshop is at a great new place right around the corner from my home. Zootown Arts which is a community center that offers art classes, artist studios, selling venues and tons more. If your in town check them out. I think its there hope they can turn the Northside into a great little arts neighborhood. That would be grand! Here's some info on them
