Wooden Shjips
2008-08-13 15:49:00
San Francisco's enigmatically named Wooden Shjips play a minimal, droning kind of garage band-influenced psychedelia with a noticeable '60s Krautrock influence. Almost unintelligible vocals slip beneath the waves of throbbing minimal rhythms while fuzz tone guitar and shrieking organ freak-outs jump to the foreground and draw you into their primal vortex. It's not a sound that everyone will love, but one that resonates deeply with former (and present-day) heads and hippies. When bandleader Ripley Johnson put the band together in 2003 he wasn't interested in playing gigs or becoming famous. His original intention was to find a group of non-musicians and create music with them. The idea was that untrained players would have a brand new outlook on what music is and bring something fresh to the table, perhaps a blend of the often noisy trance rock of the Velvet Underground and the frenetic mania of the one-hit wonder garage punks of the early '60s. Bassman Dusty Jermier, for exampl...

Wooden Shjips
2008-08-04 17:43:00
The Wooden Shjips' earliest material was released on vinyl, pressed in small quantities that were either free or hard to come by and are now hopelessly out of print. Who are we to keep you away from the rush of "Shrinking Moon for You"? Vol. 1 collects all the tracks from the free 10-inch, the Dance, California 7-inch, and the SOL 7-inch. The band will be out playing live, in their own nimble way, this spring and summer, road-testing new material for their next record.. "... [T]ight-wound repeato psych guitar raunch with spoony (maybe even imaginary) percussion, surprisingly Rev-like keys, and vocals buried under burning driftwood. It's a nice one." --Byron Coley, The Wire "... Wooden Shjips seem to have their wagon hitched to a post psychedelic/punk damaged Krautrock environ that just not enough people are astute enough to homestead." --Tom Lax, Siltblog "Like fellow locals Comets on Fire or English space rockers Hawkwind or Spaceman 3, Wooden Shjips' magic is created by a mix ...

Wooden Bikes
2008-06-19 08:42:00
Wooden bicycles can be found all over the world. These handmade bikes are often larger-scale scooters that you sit on. Made with whatever wood can be found, they use small wooden home-made wheels covered with discarded rubber rims. Forward movement depends on the rider pushing with their feet. These wooden bicycles are ridden in the Banaue region of the Philippines. During an annual festival celebrating the culture of the regional tribes, wooden bikes are raced by participants in native costume. Notice the cool foot-activated brakes. These photos are from the Flickr pool of Harry Palangchao. This kid bike is also found in the Philippines. This one too has a foot-actuated drag brake. The ones above are found in Burundi and were taken by Will Okun. These wooden bike scooters are used to haul cargo. Pushed up hill and then ridden down. Same idea in Ruhengeri, Rwanda.

A Six-Sided Wooden Block Puzzle
2008-06-04 10:01:00
Continuing with summer activities and crafts for kids, today's idea is strictly a cut-and-paste project but the results are so fun. Lillian and I did this this week and even Spencer thought it turned out rather cool.First, you'll need a set of square wooden blocks such as you'd find in a craft store for a dollar or two. I used a dozen of 1-inch square blocks.Next, choose six pictures either from magazines, coloring books, hand-colored pictures or photographs. Grouping the blocks tightly together trace the outline of the set onto each picture then cut out the outline like you see in the picture to the left.Use a cotton swab to rub some Elmer's glue on one face of each block then group them back together and lay the whole picture onto the tops of the blocks, pressing firmly to adhere the picture.Once the glue is set (it doesn't have to be completely dry but it shouldn't slip around or allow the picture to rip) run a razor blade down along the edges where the blocks meet to sepa...

Wooden Swing Set is Finished
2008-05-26 00:57:00
Tonight I finally finished assembling the wooden swing set we bought for the kids. I can't say enough good things about the quality of this set and the relative ease of construction. Don't get ease confused with time consuming however!Our 3 yr old son is totally in love with this swing set. This set includes a great slide, two swings, a set of hanging bars, a tunnel, a rock climbing wall, the upper club house with covered porch, a lower club house and covered sand box area.All of the materials were top notch in my opinion. The wood was all really good with very few knots or splits. The fasteners were all heavy duty including heavy duty hardware for the swings. I would rate this swing set as a 9.5 out of 10!The only word of advice is make sure you have plenty of time and some help to work on this project. It took me and a friend about 24 man hours to complete. The book says it should take two moderately skilled people about 40 to 48 man hours. I think that estimate is fairly accura...

Wooden Swing Set - Construction Begins
2008-05-14 01:52:00
Tonight I started working on our kids new swing set. The instruction manual says it will take two moderately skilled people 20 to 24 hours. So if I do all the work myself that should be about 40 to 48 hours of labor.Tonight I managed to get the base frame put together in about 1 hour. My 3 year old helped so maybe we can "deduct" a few minutes that I had to chase him around the yard for parts.So far the directions are great, the materials are in very good condition and I must say I'm very pleased with the purchase. I had my doubts especially when I ordered it online through Ebay but so far so good. I hope to so quite a few posts following the progress and my overall opinion of this project and product.

2008-04-30 11:11:00
Mike Rea makes things out of wood. Pretty frikkin awesome things actually. From fish tanks, to space-age war tanks, to Mecha-suits for Stephen Hawking. This guy has a wild imagination and his design realisation skills are second to none.The artist's statement:"The intent of my work is to create something short of its outcome. My goal is to create the idea of an object that remains a dream. The objects I create are based on fictions, rather than realities. I have always been interested in the ephemeral worlds established in film, or even in popular culture. Fictions or established hearsay allow for a flawed interpretation, which leads to a flawed result. The sublime is unattainable, and not an option."[VIA]
