    Hey.

    New introduction.

    I color paper. I cut paper. I glue paper.

    The movie Forbidden Planet has the single best robot - Robbie. He can pummel 3PO in manners even if 3PO can speak Bocce.

    I play Bocce but don't understand the language - 3PO is trying too hard.

    pictures of my first project - Buick Regal - make from Post-it notes, Gorilla tape, and 160gsm cardstock.

    more or less the tire was composed out of recycled kinkos regional and local managers; they are mostly plastic and without a place to go now that kinkos is renamed and rebranded. Sadly, the regional and local managers are best repurposed into park benches, gazing balls, orange traffic cones, and tract house siding.

    even so, the tires were something that I had to work over and over to support the structure of the Regal (used corrugated cardboard).

    Thanks for noticing.

    I can understand using such an inert material. They should withstand the test of time, due to their inability to deal with the surrounding prevailing reality. :)

    With foam core I could rule the world (either with a metric or standard rule).
