Re: Brooklyn anyone?

Eval - i mean for that kid to grow up quick in that "time machine" and come out raisin hell on the back of the 3 wheeler.

I did a band video in nyc where we rented a flatbed and cruised the city and ended up in front of sony records, Yeah before a few other bands copied the idea and made real "mtv videos". The band did get a card from one of the A&R guys.

But more importantly it was great fun. A top day in the life. I would gladly do it again on the sculpture truck

Re: Brooklyn anyone?

Eval, This new toy may have been designed with some of your complaints in mind. I've never seen one in action, but it appears the back wheels are sturdier and spin-outs are explicitly mentioned in the ad copy.

Re: Brooklyn anyone?

See what I mean...get a load of that huffy green machine!, obviously designed by a super alien kid. Wish they had that when I was 7.

Re: Brooklyn anyone?

Looks like they've also got one with an integrated water cannon. I'm glad toys and video games weren't this cool when I was a kid. I was obsessed enough with the crap we had.

Re: Brooklyn anyone?

Took the Bigwheel out for a spin at a show in Northampton, MA. No takers yet. And while it might seem to many that because I am actually able to ride this thing it is useful...believe me, it is not a vehicle, its existence as a thing of function could never be seriously considered. It is, after all, just a visual stone to step-on...a momentary rescue from primordial slime. But the noise it makes under the laborious peddling is something from an avante-garde nightmare...a "use" I had not anticipated.

Re: Brooklyn anyone?

In your past life were you one of those sandtraders on Tatooine assembling robots from scrapped parts?

Tatooine, Yes! And with Jabba the Medici backing me up the visual wonders would never cease.

Re: Brooklyn anyone?

I like the idea of sound being unintentionally incorporated into the work. Not in the wind chime sense, but squeeky grinding noises can be very soothing. I'm always tapping stuff against my rocks just to hear that clear ting.. Good marble does that and I suspect good metal does too.
