project SG:1

(viewed 679 times)
Subject:SG
Species:Gibson
Status:Hacked
This is the second operation on this subject. Previously, a combination double pickup extraction with a P90 implantation was succesfully completed. After a period of recovery and rehabilitation and some cosmetic work, this SG was ready for some new guts. In order to prepare, a donor was necessary, so a Ross distortion pedal had to be sacrificed. After hacking the pedal to pieces, Blake and I hacked the SG. The six hour long operation implanting the guts of the pedal into the control cavity and the battery into the vacant pickup cavity was a complete success. Instead of a pickup selector, the toggle is now a distortion effect activator; the bottom tone control is distortion intensity, and bottom volume is distortion volume.
The subject is in good condition and playing well.

This is the Lakemine, 600 ft deep hole left over from mining decades ago that has since filled with the clear blue water that springs from the aquifer below.

wilted lettuce salad

(viewed 1042 times)
This turned out to be a vegan lunch. The protein is roasted soy beans and sunflower seeds over a bed of leaf lettuce and romaine with peppers, grapes, and spices sauteed in lemon juice and olive oil with spices. For a beverage i've brewed some spiced chai, with extra cardamom and some ginger. Ah, lunch is so much nicer on my day off than fast food grabbed on a lunch break.

edge of the mine

On my lunch break from jury duty today. I biked out to the edge of town, through a couple holes in some fences and right up to the edge of the mine. Not a bad spot for a lunch break, if I do say so myself.

tailless mouse experiment 2

(viewed 878 times)
Subject: Apple Pro
Species: Mouse
The subject appears to be in the expected condition. After a lot of directed precision prying with sharp tools and a bit of slicing, the tailectomy went smoothly. Removal of the tail at the base of the cord was succesful. The next step was fusing and wrapping of the cord to prepare for reattachment.
