analog memories...

I have always been enamored with funky clocks.  Just so happens I was in the market for one for a future friday night film and found this one.  A flip clock reminds me of the old scheduling displays in Grand Central Station that would flip through all the numbers and letters...listening to them clacking away each time they updated all the information. Every character you saw was part of a module that had 40 plastic flaps with the letters A through Z, numbers 0 through 9, and a few useful symbols.  Those modules were controlled by software-run step motors that spun the flaps around like a Rolodex until they landed on the character needed to help spell out the information.  The mechanics are the reason the board made its' beloved clacking sound.  70,78,35,0,B

merch monday...


Been meaning to get some new TFL merch available for awhile now.  What has really been putting me off is the hassle of keeping track of orders and packaging and shipping them out.  Decided to explore the online options of print and ship on demand.  Going this route cuts into my profit margin a bit but I don't expect to get rich off merch anyway (but I do need to pay for my "affordable" healthcare).  Trying out galloree for a test run - they are located in my old hometown of Charlotte, NC.  Had an image of Chupa rendered as line art from fiverr and got the finished product emailed back to me overnight for only ten bucks.  Did the rest of the graphics myself and uploaded the artwork and ordered a coffee mug and Tshirt from them to see how they look.  If all goes well, people can just order directly once I set up my store there and Galloree handle it all.  Working on a Ben design as well.  I won't entirely be cutting my friend Rick from Bullshirtz out of the loop as I expect to do more screen printing through him for local sales.  63,71,39,0,B

a clean heart...

Psalm 5110 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.  11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.  12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.  13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
