Beginning Bits O 2019 - Part Five

after 3 total days of work mostly from Steven and I and some help from Jen and Kimie, Laputa II is finished. There were some finishing touches I had to add later on but it's done and seems to be pretty awesome.

old and new

Oden Japanese fishcakes time.

these first two photos are of hops that were inside the greenhouse and the last one was outside the greenhouse, so maybe it does make a difference

cutting additional supports. my old mentor John Nickle who lives down the street lent me some tools including this saw.

was featured in Society6's art quarterly

scored a MOMA artist's membership. We went to a member's after hours thing in the sculpture garden so far and need to go back and get more out of this membership.

this is psychotic behavior. Jen never touched her ketchup amongst all those fries.
We finally ate at Sidecar right next to our house and the burger was good actually. 

Jen's boss's birthday party at whatever Happy Ending is now called. We used to throw parties here back in our FIT days.

we've had a drawer full of batteries, electronics, laptops, cables, gas canisters, etc for years and finally we went to SAFE disposal event that the city put on. This one was at Prospect park and was on our calendar for half a year. They said normal modern alkaline batteries can just be thrown away in the garbage but that feels bad. We both left this event in whatever the opposite of awe is at the sight of all of our collective electronics, chemicals, paints, batteries, etc dropped off by those who have the means to even entertain such a thing. There were minivans and cars with huge tv's tied to the top. There were palettes full of tower computers, monitors. There were people throwing ipads and laptops into bins. It's amazing and sad to see what a parasite humanity is. I hate waste and throwing stuff away and adding to the pile.

last hotpot of the year

this spring was very cold and crappy so hardening off the seedlings really sucked and some died and they especially hate the wind.
