Everybody Wants Prosthetic Foreheads On Their Real Heads!

Everybody Wants Prosthetic Foreheads On Their Real Heads!

Postby Mister Jellyfish Mister » Tue Dec 09, 2008 9:51 pm

Munz and I drank a lot of beer here at Jellywërks last night. We were celebrating our commitment to craft prosthetic foreheads and wear them on our real heads. They'll have video screens built into them which will display, among other things, video footage of people's foreheads.

Everybody Wants Prosthetic Foreheads On Their Real Heads!

We'll be the CAVEMEN of the FUTURE!

Inspired by the third verse of this song by They Might Be Giants:

Thanks. Just in concept stage right now (i.e. it's all still in our foreheads). Mantis is fixed and ready to deploy at Santa Crawl. All that green el wire will look great against the red and white costumes!

Yessss! Triangle man! Degraded man- Person Man!

We want to have "Celebrity Forehead" night and wear video footage of YOUR FOREHEAD around Black Rock City. If anybody asks we'll surely confess that we were trying to look like your forehead all along. Would you, any of you, be interested in sending us video footage of your forehead for such purpose? We'd need at least a half hour of video to to capture your subtle forehead nuances.

Can I get a what-what for Cap'n Smashy!

Santa did not bring us prosthetic foreheads. We simply must build them ourselves. The video tekky is coming along well with Munz. Anybody got a line on how to build a strap-on forehead that's light weight?

...go light on the egg-nog this holiday season, ok?

I want a prosthetic FOREHEAD on my forehead, not a synthetic BREAST on my forehead...keep up the research (just no egg-nog)!

Jellyfish -

How will you burn the foreheads down?
Will you build a playhouse to hang all the foreheads on for the burn?

Hmmmm.

Hi Risky, Dougly and Jafe. To the former, you're just getting back at me for my cigar burn at the Santa Crawl. I really am sorry about it, but trying to hug you to express my apology might have been better met without the cigar.

I got on youtube and found a plethora of dancing eyebrows and foreheads so I think the material will work. Once we finish the first prototype I'll post the how-to on Instructables.com

Jafe: Are you really trying to tell me you don't want a breast on your forehead? Come on, man. I know you better than that.

Dougly: Cavemen... OF THE FUTURE!!! DUUUUUUUDE!

I already have a prosthetic forehead.

my forehead is attached with two steel bands. each runs from the side burn to the center above the nose. then up to the hair line on each side of the forehead. they were bolted into place until my body accept them.

If this sounds like a good idea. Go for it. But I'm not going to recomend it.

I had actually forgotten all about that! And now I have forgotten it again. *smooch*

But really, the end of the song is something like "Someone in this town is gonna burn the foreheads down."

Curse you, Unjon. Yours is always harder better faster stronger!

Risky, yeah, that's a neat part of the song followed by "Throw the crib door wide, let the people crawl inside" which is very De-evolution indeed. It's conceivable that a thumb wheel or similar button interface could be mounted in the hand to scroll through different videos stored into RAM. So, for example, you could pass a group of frat boys on the Esplanade and your forehead would switch to footage from Girls Gone Wild or something. We aims to please.

I have to have a Dr. letter for air travel. Even with the bolt groves.

I was thinking magnet to change foreheads. They just don't work well with stainless.

Damn, Cap'n! That's the best collection of the Spiteful Tower burn I've seen! Makes my forehead swell. Would you mind if I compiled them into a short YouTube to try and simulate the video footage I've never been able to find?

You guys, as I was walking up the stairs with my coffee this morning, my nine year old daughter called me into her room and directed me to her little white board of ideas. She was excited to show me what looked like an electromagnetic propulsion system with a stick figure of her riding around on the top. "Cool, why don't you build a model first" I remarked. She replied "Awesome! That's what I'm gonna do today". I secretly hope the working apparatus is coming to Black Rock City 2018, in which case her bulging forehead may be all natural.

If you need bigger images, I can burn them onto cd and send them to you. That's about half the pictures I shot on the burn night.
