More polyvore collages

Here are some more collages I made at polyvore.  Only one of them has an outfit in it.  You should bring up each set page so you can better see the layers of the collages, and what went into them.  There are a lot of subtle details.

So, I’m a geek…

I found this site a little while back, and thought it was really neat.  I kind of want a little zeusaphone!  I found several videos on YouTube of twin solid state tesla coils producing music.  The ultimate electronica!  I sat there entranced watching these things, and about all I could muster to say was “That is *SO* COOOOL!!!”  It is fascinating to listen closely and hear how some of the buzzing notes in electronica and other music really aren’t too far off from controlled lightening.  (Which, those arcs sort of are in a way.) 

It is so neat to watch, but I wouldn’t dare be as near to them as I see the audience being in the video.  (Much less don that protective gear and stand near enough to let the arcs wash over me.  No thanks, I’ll watch from afar, crouched safely down, and taking care to not court misfortune.  I just know my luck with such things.  I’d skydive before I’d do that.)  I’m rather dangerprone.  I managed to give myself an audible, somewhat painful static shock FROM A COOKIE not that long ago.  I just know, that at the least my hair would end up looking like a Fraggle

What do you think of the musical lightning that are singing tesla coils?  Hard to find words at first, eh? 

Virtual paper snowflakes at Popular Front’s Snowdays!

This site is quite fun, but you will find yourself caught up in making and improving your paper flake techniques.  I’ve been making snowflakes there for over a year

Here are some of mine.  (Or, you could try the search feature, and search KatK Kansas to pull up the flakes I have made, if the server doesn’t time out.  There are a *LOT* of them, these are a few of the ones I really like.)

 Mouse over the falling flakes (they will be denoted as “Your Friend’s” as they fall) then mouse over the “+” sign in the upper right corner of the flake menu box to expand the flake to better admire it.  If the page doesn’t seem to want to load, leave it be and wait until you see it says “done”, then try to pull it up via your “visited pages history”.  The site seems really buggy today, it isn’t usually like this. 

I know my flakes aren’t the most intricate around, but I have fun making them.  This site has tips on how to make the more intricate flakes, as well as showcases for grand examples. 

Updating:  Here is my latest flake, and I got a screen cap of it too.  (Don’t have a printer atm.)  I’ll just add a few more screen caps to this post, in case people can’t pull up the Snowdays site.
