In case you missed it, today seems to be zombie writing day. No clue why, other than being triggered by a late-morning dream about helicopters and zombies. Everything else just kinda flowed out of that.

It feels good to write again. It's like I've been crunched for so long and finally let up enough to breathe.

It's not like I've had a reprieve. I'm still working my ass off on things that are molto
frustrando
, but something seems to have happened to give me the realization that I am in reprieve, that I'm not harvesting any deadlines except my own.

It might be the vitamins. Or surviving the chicken incident. Or the weekend finally being here in glory. Or it could be some bizarre form of zombie synchronicity. Whatever it is, it's a welcome change.

I think that in the relatively near future, I'm going to be ordering some Dragon Skin silicone from Smooth-On. It's for the Yogurt puppet. Bear in mind that I've never made a hand puppet out of silicone so I'm not entirely sure what to expect, but this stuff has a shore 10 hardness, and that's pretty much as soft as you can get without becoming a gel. And an easy 1:1 mix makes me happy.

Hey, that's the stuff they used to make Buster Mark II on Mythbusters.

Wow... that would be an expensive crash test dummy.

Well, they do keep re-using him. And the use is pretty hard core, including, you know, black powder and fire and did I mention fire?

Silicone is a pretty durable material. I know that the last stuff I used is primarily for pewter casting, but it works really well for polyurethanes too.

Did they use the Dragon Skin for just a skin layer, or did they cast his whole body? I don't get cable anymore...
