I think you won't want to talk to me. Not after you read the PMs. But if you do, as long as it's not that Pork Loin stuff, or worse, that Vegi-b... (pardon me, ITIJTUIMMJAB) pseudobacon made of Asbestos, Plywood, and Axle grease... We can talk Bacon.

There are two threads that begin with "SIDESHOW" in caps. One under Theme Camps, and one under Art & Performance.

After 8 continuous blockbuster years in BRC, APOKILIPTIKA is evolving!


Strangely enough - a lot of the camp apparently didn't want to "evolve", the theme seemed to work quite well. How about... instead of raiding OUR camp (and starting a fuckload of drama so doing), you and your friends who want to jump ship start a new one with a different theme? Leave what works alone, and if you want to take your friends and start a new theme, well, we in Apokiliptika wish you the best of luck with that. Serious - you have the talent and the brains to do it. Just leave OUR camp out of it.

Thank you, and have a damn good burn in 2013. I know we will. ;)

Brainstorming


Meet Lars.


Image


Lars lives on a Norwegian fishing boat. If he is lucky, he gets to swim in the sub-freezing waters of the Arctic until a Coast Guard helicopter picks him up – saving the life of the fellow who crawled inside Lars when the boat went down.

Lars is an Immersion Suit. An Ocean Survival Suit. He is made of some sort of spongy rubber, like a diver’s wet suit. Some years ago I rescued Lars from a flee market for ten bucks. Potential.



Now meet Butt Jiggler.


Image
Image


The two snapshots illustrate Butt Jiggler’s range of motion. The saddle and handlebar move in unison, up and together, down and apart, up and together, down and apart, interminably. And the pedals rotate, for good measure (though can be disconnected).

Butt Jiggler was invented as a physical therapy tool in 1932, and has been crippling healthy people ever since. Pristine specimens sell for over USD 2.000,-. I bought Butt Jiggler at the flee market for twenty bucks. Enormous potential.

Butt Jiggler runs on household 115 Volt AC. He draws 8,6 Amps. That’s 1000 Watts.


In 2010, Duane Flatmo – he of El Pulpo Mechanico – brought a Butt Jiggler to our Kinetic Cab Company camp. On it were attached two freaky creatures of burlap and straw and rags and whatnot in such a way that when the machine ran, the two creatures appeared to be… making a baby creature.

So I’m thinking…. What if we put Lars on this Butt Jiggler.


Image

Maybe we could find him a girlfriend. Or just let him ride that bucking bronco on his own.

I ought to be able to build him a skeleton with the necessary hinges, and flesh him out. Rig up some sort of mask for a face. Paint him, of course. And I’m thinking it might be possible to install coarse hair by poking it thru from the inside.

I have a big red industrial momentary switch that visitors could push to activate him, just like in other fine scientific exhibits.

Potential.
