the visit to Chicago was a full success. I packed 40 hours of consciousness into 2 day. You heard about the first day already and the second was just as good. We went to the bean downtown, pictures below. I can’t decide if pictures do the bean justice or not. The name of the piece isn’t been infect it’s called the CLOUD GATE by Anish Kapoorz. It’s truly awe inspiring. The reflection of the city on it’s complex surfaces are mind blowing. I’m completely fascinated with how it must have been made. So far I haven’t been able to find any construction videos but it would be great to have an understanding of the construction.
After the bean we took the bikes down by the packed beach then over to a deep dish Chicago pizza place called Pequod’s they clam to have the universe’s best pizza. I’ll be honest it was pretty good. After a quick stop home for a nap we continued out for the second night. The highlight was Karaoke everyone sang which is cool. Brian did an inspired version of Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show. I held it down with Saturday and Private Eyes.For some reason I can’t understand the songs really take a lot out of me these days. I don’t know if it’s because I’m trying harder to sing them better or if I just can’t hack it anymore.
Anyway a huge thanks goes out to Brian and the guys in Chicago. Thanks for showing me a great time in what seemed like just a few hours!!!!

MUNNYLOPE is DONE and it is amazing. I printed it solid so it has a pretty good weight to it and is pretty sturdy. I’m nervous about the antlers but even those seem reasonably robust. I wish i could make one of all of you but sadly the process fro one of these suckers is not only long it’s $$$$. I don’t have a figure on how much it costs to make one because i don’t know material costs or what machine time goes for as I did this one in my office. I do know that it took the machine 30 Hours to complete it . Nothing to sneeze at.

Headed to Maryland this weekend I’ll let you know how that goes.

    I think having a name like Anish gives you ample free time to create something great.
    Also, you probably know how to take a punch.

    what i want to know is who polishes all the oooh and aaah smears of the damn thing – and whoever it is must be either the most laid back person or the most irritated person in the world. if it where me, i’d be the latter… i’d be busying about with my pledge and sham-wow, polishing off finger, nose, forehead, chin, ear prints (and other unidentifiable smears) and as soon as I’d be done and step back to look at the perfection of my job some jerk would walk up and plant his greasy honker right on my glistening spot yelling “look at my really funny reflection”! a few days of this and I would end up in jail for grievous bodily harm!…….. sorry, eh-herm, yes, it is a beautiful piece of art!
