    We once got very finely sharpened pencils from a school teacher. She had them mixed in with some candy, held them out to us in a round, wooden Church collection plate. If a medical bill might have had to have been paid by her because somebody got stabbed reaching for the candy, it was an open and shut case against her because each pencil said on it:"From your Teacher"-then her name was next. (Those pencils tasted like nothing but terrible too! )

    Thunder rolls across the sky, booming, belching, cracking. The sky is dark. All "GOOD"! I have a small busload of "NEWBIES" arriving in maybe an hour and these special defects will most likely still be around us in the air! It is a special Bachlor party tour, and I guess only the Groom has been here before (and he loves Ravens Grin!) (Don't tell his Fiance!) Awhile ago we had someone contact us who wanted to pre-pay their admission (which we can do) and then show up here and pretend to...

    I saw a new house where gas line, water line, electrical line plus a few more all came into the house at the SAME SPOT! they all crossed over one another doing this arriving at the same place! What a mess! We were supposed to be doing some in-ground work too! The late Don Quinn of then Dodgeville , Wis. had his teenage Son driving a tractor doing some landscaping? The utility company had been out and marked the lines very thoroughly, he was 20 feet? from the marks when the tractor blade hit...

    victor-eyd replied to a thread Atmosphere Effects: Rear projection- El cheapo style in Halloween Props
    I wasn't really impressed with the white as I was with the black. I have a theater room with a black wall and early during construction I fired up my ht projector just to see what it would look like. Using the black table cloth holds great promise as some people on this forum wanted to use scrim or garden matting as a black screen material and i wanted to explore what you would get using $0.99 material. Turns out that if you dial the contrast down enough on high lumen older lcd projectors that...

    What a tragic and cruel disease! I know many of my kids college friends are doing this and my hubbies stations are also joining in. I see the challenge has raised over 30 mil. To date. Hopefully it can help push the research along, at least a little bit. I'm so sorry to hear about your cousin.

    Terra replied to a thread Pneumatic: Air Whip Help ... in Halloween Props
    It's 4 feet long and the air pressure depends on how vigorous you want them to wiggle. I had mine dialed pretty low so they didn't beat you to death and didn't over-tax my air compressor because I had 4-6 other props running off my 20 gal compressor (poor thing). I can't exactly remember the psi but it was probably around 30-60. Looking at Fright Props looks like they may have gone to softer tubing but I'd even go further and try surgical rubber tubing perhaps:...

    GOS, that was really helpful. Thanks for your lights comparison. Do you think the blue or white kaleidoscope spot could sort of look like snow falling?

    I think the small rebar is about two feet long and I hammer it down about a foot. What you might do is call the number for your city that you use when you are going to do some digging in your yard. All the utility companies will come out and use spray paint to mark where any piping or utility lines are located. I did this when I moved into my house and then took pictures of all the markings for future reference.

    I've been drooling over the new Actobotics, a precision servo building system, from Servo City and anxious to give them a try - http://www.servocity.com/html/actoboticstm.html. I put them to the test and used them to bring a character I've had on the drawing boards for quite awhile to life. With the help of a great "Prop Squad", we completed the project in record time in order to have finished in time to make the deadline for a Halloween issue magazine article. Robert Risley, aka Bobzilla ...

    Terra replied to a thread Pneumatic: Air Whip Help ... in Halloween Props
    Air whips are notorious air hogs so it's important to have just as many air whips in the unit that you need. How many or what use are you thinking for it? Here's the one I bought from Fright Props years ago: If it is going to hit the legs of the ToTs think of the little ballerinas that go through and use soft rubber whips instead of these plastic ones.
