The Blue Steel

“Shut up! Enough already, Ballstein. Who cares about Gracie anyway? The dog has only one look for Christ’s sake! Blue Steel, Ferrari, Le Tigre? They’re the same face! Doesn’t anyone notice this?!

I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. I invented the piano key necktie. I invented it! What have you done, Gracie? Nothing! YOU’VE GOT NOTHING! NOTHING!!”

Quote from Mugatu, taken from the film Zoolander.

Pics of the same face….our dog, Gracie, and one combo pic with our beloved wolf, Mischa. Both of whom are no longer with us.

She’s so hot right now….


Found this in the archives of good2begone. It gave me a needed smile and laugh. Hope it does the same for someone else.


The Quickening

“I have the power! The quickening that empowers me! I feel everything! I know everything! I am everything!”- Movie quote from Highlander

Had some hobby time this weekend. Which means it was time to get creative.

I started with this-

Pretty good size piece of driftwood off the lake I work on. It’s all hollowed out, so it has lots of caves and turns in it.

I went the home depot and bought some polyurethane. Then headed the the dollar tree….

Which is more like the dollar and a quarter tree now…


I picked up a cheap roll of LED lights and a LED puck light.

Got home and let the creative juices flow like lava from a volcano…or something like that.

Here is the finished product…

Which i have dubbed-

“The Quickening”

Looks better in the darkness

There can be only one.

“Most people have a full measure of life… and most people just watch it slowly drip away. But if you can summon it all up… at one time… in one place… you can accomplish something… glorious.”- quote from Highlander 2 The Quickening

Judgement Day

20130716-222559.jpgThree billion human lives ended on August 29, 1997. The survivors of the nuclear fire called the war Judgment Day. They lived only to face a new nightmare, a war against the machines…The computer which controlled the machines, Skynet, sent two terminators back through time. Their mission: to destroy the leader of the human Resistance…John Connor – my son. The first terminator was programmed to strike at me, in the year 1984…before John was born. It failed. The second was sent to strike at John himself, when he was still a child. As before, the Resistance was able to send a lone warrior. A protector for John. It was just a question of which one of them would reach him first.”- Sarah Connor from Terminator 2.

Protecting The Dome

The Emperor: As you can see, my young apprentice, your friends have failed. Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL battle station!
Fire at will, Commander!
