Putrid's Crypt

4/17/2006 - Well, I',m going to try not to blow anything up.

Well I bought me a book and I'm starten a learnen.


Went to an auction Friday night. Picked up 3 books on electricity. One is thick and thorough. Even has a chapter on trig. Something about AC power is calculated at right angles to keep it in phase. Being an x-guitar player and band member I know all about things being out of phase. Nothing is more 'fun' than putting your lips on a microphone that is electrically out of phase from your guitar. You get a buzz, blue light and your lips turn as numb as at the dentists. And it hurts too. Figured I'd start with the trig sense I didn't have it in school. When I was in school it was never offered. The book also has an entire chapter on safety. Not bad for $2. I like auctions. There like yard sales with an MC. LOL

In reality I may end up only studying what I need to learn to re wire and hack things. Not looking to be an electrical engeneer. No, I'm not stupid. If I don't know I don't do. I happen to like keeping this body in one piece.

Having a blast thinking and making machines for the haunt. Trying to come up with things that look modern and some that look old. All the machines  will be dirty, greasy and smudge covered, leaking, broken, patched and in general disrepair. I was thinking of using duct tape but that would end up looking like the prop got damaged and I taped it back together to use it. People are too used to seeing duct tape. That stuff holds cars together around here. LOL
