Michelangelo- The Great One

This was a great glimpse at one of the truly great artists on Earth. One of my  personal favorites is Rodin, & Vincent Van Gogh, but that’s for another time. Oh, & Paul Gaugin & his glimpses into the exotic life of ” the South Seas ” as they were known. For another discussion / blog entry.

Michelangelo was dedicated, one can see the life that he infused his sculptures with.Genius, complete genius. & yet he was quoted as saying that the sculptures were within the stone, just waiting for him to knock away the unnecessary bits.

A 3D Printed Pigeonstein to Haunt Your Beautiful Dreams

& 3 – D printers can apparently be used to print somewhat BIZARRE art, too.

I think if it could print ” Audrey II ” from the musical ” Little Shop of Horrors ” or a small model of ” Magenta ” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show ” that would be interesting, too. 🙂

While UK architect William Stanley has recently launched a 3D printed jewelry shop, with which to execute his 3D printable creativity, it may be his 3D printed Skele-structure sculpture that stands heads above some of the other 3D printed work in the industry. The Skele-structure is a design that artfully combines 3D printed replicas of […]

Not quite the celebration of Advent –

BUT it IS getting close.

In any of its 2 – 3 ( ? ) Incarnations, The Twilight Zone has been MORE than a science – fiction, fantasy, adventure series.

In fact, back in its Golden Age, it really broke ground on topics such as human rights, race – relations, politics, belief, the workings of the human mind, & related areas.

They had 2 Christmas episodes that became part of the 1980’s reboot, one  being in the classic version. BOTH unforgettable, & both quite capable of eliciting a lump in the throat – ” Night of The Meek ” & an episode based on an Arthur C. Clarke short story, ” The Star “.

My friends, I reach into my Serling – esque bag to give you the 1980’s Twilight Zone Version of Arthur C. Clarke’s ” The Star “, as an early Christmas / Yule / holiday – time present ( Provided the link works. IT BETTER. 🙂 2115 hours – Maybe you could look it up on Youtube. It is a GOOD episode )
