It’s officially Fall, which means it’s time for my perennial favorite (ha!*) music video.

*(That pun really only makes sense in context of the band. Yeah… … I’m gonna go now.)

Awesome Mix Volume 2 Challenge

OK Guardians of the Galaxy Fandom I have a challenge! A purely for fun and awesomess style challenge.

I was talking to a few friends about the coolness that is Awesome Mix Vol. 1. And we were trying to think of what Peter’s mother would give him as a rocking “I love you, have fun, be strong, goodbye.” Awesome Mix Vol. 2 cassette. And I thought that there are probably some amazing songs and ideas out there.

Let’s set the parameters:

The earliest song on the cassette was “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell from 1967.

Peter is grabbed in 1988. Let’s assume his mom has been dealing with her sickness(cancer?) for a while and has been a little out of musical touch for a bit. So let’s put the newest date that the songs can be is 1987.

In an article James Gunn said he picked songs “by reading the Billboard charts for all of the top hits of the ’70s,”

( http://www.vulture.com/2014/08/how-guardians-of-the-galaxy-music-soundtrack-was-chosen.html )

So let’s also try to limit the songs to the Billboard charts. (Unless the song is super awesome and fits super well)

To Summarize:

Songs from 1967 to 1987 on the Billboard music charts. (Unless the song is perfect and awesome)

So have at it and introduce people to great songs that they might not have ever heard before!

 —————————————————————————-

I’ll kick us off by suggesting a few of my own that feel like they may be a good starting point.

Ballroom Blitz by Sweet (1973)

Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas (1974)

Mr Robotto by Styx (1982)

Space Cowboy by Steve Miller band (1969)

Space Trucking by Deep Purple (1972)

Tom Sawyer by Rush (1981)

Shine a Little Love by Electric Light Orchestra (1979)

Mr Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra (1977)

If you have a good idea or 2 reblog this with it added to it.

Hey local friends it is my Birthday on Tuesday.

I know it is short notice,

But anybody want to meet up and grab some dinner or something?

A day or so ago I posted the start to a wing harness,

Well several hours later I have gotten to here. I used a bunch of PVC pipe and a heat gun to create the basic skeleton. Yes there are going to be 4 wings.

So far that is 2/3rds of each wing. The last 1/3rd will probably be coat hanger to give the feathers on the end of the wings a bit of rigidity. When done the top wings will be about 84” long for a total wingspan of around 170”. And the bottom will be about 60” for a total span of around 120”.

As perspective that mannequin is just over 6’ tall.

These wings will be huge.

The hardest part so far is designing it so that the wings are modular and can be broken down for travel. As it sits now each wing will break into 3 component parts.

For the feathers I plan on using the thin plastic foam that is used to protect furniture. I’m stopping by a local place late next week to grab a bunch of used chunks. I talked to them on Friday and they are saving a good sized selection for me. And plastic will last a lot longer and travel better than real feathers.

There you go. More to come as I work on it.
