I find it very much to my liking and I am really enjoying being a part of a start up.
There was a time when internet didn't have lotsa prn?
Just kept it the same. Simple and easy to remember.
On FT nobody knew I was a dog, so now I am officially sporting a dog avatar. But then I am tricking people into believing that I am into dry Martinis. In reality I am a rum connoisseur.
I've changed my handle as I am leaving other forums where I used the same name.
Tin hat anyone
And, your point is??
Frankly, I don't think it is all that unusual for a person to be annoyed that the government is taking such great interest in one's personal life and/or comments about being harassed at airport checkpoints. Call it paranoia or whatever you else you wish... I don't like it.
That sounds like perfect preparation for life on an internet bulletin board. I think I'll volunteer you to keep us in line.
I used to play with burned out vacuum tubes, they looked like rocket ships.
No photos of them, but here's a nice shot of me displaying the latest leading edge technology flashbulb along with an earlier version; from a photography instruction book. Maybe I should use this as my avatar?
Among the special effects I've designed & built (I am the special effects designer for "Wicked")
were 6 revolving 24" mirrored balls for the rock group "Kiss" that each had 60 medium screw sockets
that were fitted with #3 flashbulbs for each performance (a #3 is about the size of a 200 watt bulb)
Sylvania stopped making these when we made our last very large order of these years ago
Over the 3 years that these were used in their peformances we went through thousands
of cases of 60 flashbulbs each of which I still have about 30 cases left
We still use them from time to time in limited applications
AG-1s (I must have a few hundred) & a strange filled PS-25
I have a most incredible collection of old & odd lamps (bulbs) large & small
it was shorter?
I believe I still have that PS-25 up in the attic- I'll have to look for it this week.
You'd be interested in another MP'er, JSpira. He published a beautiful book on the history of photography; his father had an absolutely incredible collection of photographic equipment. My wife and I spent a wonderful day at his fathers house viewing some amazing pieces. You can see some of them on the site about the book.
In a past life I was a rock and roll stagehand. I know those mirrored balls.
you're downplaying it- you were a lot more than just a stagehand.
Perhaps. It was a good life.
It's hard to be certain from the photo
It might well be a PS-30
That number refers to the diameter in eighths of an inch
I must have a few dozen large wattage PS-52s (1K & 2K)
The #3 flashbulbs had been used for many years on stage
for lightning effects before large strobes were developed
For me it still is after more than 50 years
Feels good that they are remembered
My hubby is a stagehand, head propmaster at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis. We know "Wicked" well and I was on wardrobe last time it was here
Initial search I didn't find the bulb, but I did find a new, unopened box with two GE Type DAN reflector photo lamps for home movie lighting; they're close to 50 years old. I bet they'd bring at least $4.00 on ebay!
Cool graphics on the packaging.
I want to have 2 identities.
Please give him my best
I may well have met him (if he's been around a while)
Isn't that "The Fabulous Fox"
You may have helped Nessarose with the leg braces I made
If it was the Emerald Company then Mary Seasly was head of wardrobe
or it would be Cynthia Lancaster on the Munchkinland Company
Probably high wattage R-40s
Maybe $1.50 or $35 you never know
200 watt R-20's.
I'd go for $35.
I am quite sure you know my Paul! I believe it was Munchkinland last time in. I had boy Monkeys this last time and boy were those wings fun. I believe Wicked will be back next season.
Very cool that you design those special effects.
I still get in about a dozen or so rock shows a year; a far cry from the 200+ I did for the past ten, but I've moved on to a more corporate event environment. Still in AV and still stimulating as I get to do some fun stuff, but the music was really exciting! I recently rigged Cirque's Dralion arena show. Man, do they have some fun toys!
