Ceilings are boring places. That's why I decided
to stick shit all over mine. Actually that "SHIT" is a growing
amount of alien technology including the small cold-fusion reactor you
can see glowing in these rare shots. I'll try to figure out how to get
a better shot of this stuff in the future but the camera just flairs
out badly with the light. If I turn the light off, you can't see anything
Once again I have to thank Dr. Panda
and Psychoboys engineering for installing
the new ceiling and insulation materials. I couldn't have done that
without him. But then we thought it was a bit stark.
Dr. Panda showed me
how to make molds with various materials and I did some experimentation
of my own using polystyrene and fiberglass. The thing about this is
that we tend to find interesting shapes within packaging materials.
Blister packs and the likes. So we can now use these as molds to clone
those shapes into new sci-fi-esk nernies. Even the odd piece of useful
Once again, this is a work in progress. Out
in the engineering space we've got shelves full of nernies in various
states of completion ready to be installed. I'm not sure if I'm going
for a sci-fi interior look or maybe the outside of some space station
or space ship. I just like the shapes we create though. I'm not kidding.
Some of these shapes get me really aroused when I see them accumulating.
That can't be right.
I'd been looking at the way space ship modelers
do their thing for sci-fi movies and I really wanted to do stuff like
that. Just that I've got absolutely, not reason to do it. Except on
my ceiling perhaps. Some of the gear is pure decoration. Others are
actually functional equipment with entirely practical purposes. And
somewhere, buried in amongst all of it is a real live self destruct
system which I hope I never have to use.
As usual, more shots as I add more gear. The
unfortunate reality is that much of the work that Dr. Panda and I have
done here goes unseen. The hot air extraction system that Dr. Panda
designed has lots of cool moving parts which are remote controlled but
because it's in the roof, you can't actually see it do it's stuff.
