Music to build by...
So I've been out back makin lamps these days. Weirdly, I've also listened strictly to one album during the entire process of each lamp. During lamp one, I listened to Mudhoney's Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge album, and it's SO good. Saw them a few months back and they are just as good now as they were in 1991, if not better. I MAY have over rocked that lamp, as when it arrived at the house of its new owner, it had an eight inch crack along one side. I had to remake er... which I did by listening to the same album at a lower decimel... should get there fine this time.
As if going back to 1991 wasn't digging into the archives deep enough, for lamp two I backed it up another 20 years and listened to Pink Floyd's Meddle over and over. Sometimes I got creeped out in the middle of the 23 minute long song Echoes, which is what they were going for I'm assuming. I love that San Tropez song though... So sue me. I didn't hear back from the person who bought this lamp... MIGHT be because it snuck up on her and attacked her whilst she slept.
I'm more than halfway done with the bamboo veneer lamp I'm entering into that M+D+F exhibition, and I brought it back to current day with that two man band I blathered about seeing/loving to slobbery bits during SXSW- The Black Diamond Heavies, and their first album, Every Damn Time. The only time I couldn't hit "play agane" was when Claire was sleeping, and I had the baby monitor on, so I got to listen to her flop around and wah sometimes. I'm assuming this will result with exhibit goers rocking their pants off, pulling them back up and pooping in them.
