tape violin & comics

About fifteen years after buying a tape player to make into a tape violin I ripped the playback head out & put it on the outside.  Hey, it works.  Now I just need to figure out what I want to be on the tape I use & how to string it up or maybe I should just mount the tape on a board.  I realize this paragraph doesn’t make sense to most folks, but basically a tape violin is a piece of magnetic tape bowed across a playback head, if the piece of tape has a recording of a constant tone then speed of bowing pretty reasonably controls pitch.  I forget who it is that used one that is famous, maybe Laurie Anderson?

I printed some of the comics today.  There was something wrong where one of the comics was taking about ten minutes per page to send to the printer.  Not sure what that’s about.

I got some rough sketches for the Mecha comic, it’s cool because it allows things to be a little more collaborative than it often is.

I got an email back from a guy I was supposed to collaborate with on a comic.  He said my stories were more scenes from movies than actual narratives.  I’m not sure if that’s supposed to be an insult or a compliment or a fact.  I think I’ll take it as a fact, but I’m not sure if we’ll end up working together; there was already an issue with us not sharing a fluent language.

I think I’m going to cut off my landline in the next couple of days.  I hate to do it as I’ve had the same number for years, but I guess it makes sense to save a little cash.
