HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISLE OF RANGOON!

Okay, so this show is really good and you may have heard of it lately because of Nash. I became a fan last summer and met Sunny Jim at Mag.

Anyway, give this a try and it has our favorite guy Linkara riffing with them.

The Forbidden Planet - Starbound

I built a base on the stargate map.

Its tricky, you have to have gravel or skulls or something, jump off the edge, and drop them on the bottom edge of the map before you fall off (easier in admin mode), but you can get a purchase to build from there.

I built an artificial ocean by building a glass background and filling it with water. I then started in on islands, like Starchibald’s island retreat (in progress) and his escape ship, which old school gamers may  recognize.

Starchibald and Sunny Jim face off against the animated film that has everything: Union negotiations, pirates, living tiki statues, catfights, bowling, strip pinochle, torture and strudel! 

Wait… isn’t this supposed to be a Christmas movie?

Maybe if it was written by aliens whose only knowledge of humanity came from reddit. Put on your special shoes and make peace with the deity of your choice, its ELF BOWLING!

Sunny Jim and Starch face the return of the Mysterious Malefactor! 

After months of slacking, the Malefactor is back and he has a disturbing marionette-filled short all about the joys and miseries of telephone operation for the Rangoons. He’s out to make up for lost time but an even more powerful force has its claws in his would-be victims: Starbound!*

Take a trip to the distant past, when telephones had dials, busy signals and sufficient mass to fell a mature bison with a single blow in… Adventure in Telezonia! 

*This video also doubles as a review of the Starbound Beta.

New Starchibald - Puppet

My first puppet was Starchibald, a simple sock-puppet like creature made from ProjectPuppet’s Glorified Sock Puppet design. As my first design, Starchibald had some problems. His arms were poorly sewn and could neither be manipulated or posed. His stiching was questionable, I had tried to glue in his tongue with fabric glue leading to discoloration and, in general, he was rough going. 

Still, I liked the character, and after having made another dozen or so puppets to build up my skills, I decided to make a new one. 

Starchibald 2.0 is far and away a superior puppet. He has a foam body for structure, better sewing techniques and fabric to minimize seam appearances, interchangable eyes affixed with velcro for future expansion of his facial expressions, better designed and attached inner-mouth features, a wire-posable tail (he’s some kind of Salamander or newt), bushier eyebrows and working arms (one with a removable rod, the other with a magnet in his palm for grabbing things/using a magnet-based rod.

With his eyebrows, his major features are completed. I plan on adding a puppeteer’s sleeve and possibly a pair of legs down the road.
