1. Do-It-Yourself: Plastic Molding
"Why should I know how to mold my own plastic?" This isn't the first time I've heard this question. Let me explain:
You know those broken things you have laying around or even have just thrown away in the past, that when the original is pieced back together would be easy to mold a new part that ...
2. Make Your Own Charcoal Briquettes
Hobbies, Games & Toys - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 15:55:10
Bagging those lawn clippings yet? Piles of newspapers and cardboard boxes? Limbs and brush? The kids bringing home way too many art and assignment papers? Is your family throwing away too much paper? Tired of not getting paid for all of that recycling?

While working up the nerve to start working on my own Graphic Novel, I joined the forum of Mr. Jason Brubaker over at reMINDblog.com and makinggraphicnovels.com.

Books, Poetry & Writing - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 15:54:31

6. Metal Casting At Home
Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:10:16
It doesn't take a fortune to get started with metal casting. With enough imagination, there isn't much that you wouldn't be able to build. All it takes is some determination to get set up properly and safely, and anything is possible. Even from the most modest of back yard foundries, you can achi...
7. Building Stage Presence And Confidence
Hobbies, Games & Toys - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 15:53:08
I think a lot of bands forget that the best way to eliminate stage fright is to perform. Performing is the pinnacle of being a musician. This is also the best way to be building stage presence and confidence in yourself. Experiencing first hand what people really feel about your music is what mak...
8. Creating A Buzz With Your Band
Music - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:05:29
There you are! You're standing at the microphone, guitar in hand. You look to your right: Your keyboard player gives you a nod. To your left, the bass player looks back at the drummer. The drummer starts clicking off the first song. You turn around to face the crowd that has come just to see you!...

10. Air Powered Engines
Travel & Places - Mon, 15 Sep 2014 00:13:04
Power from an Air Engine? Yes. You heard me right, an air engine. An engine that uses compressed air to drive it as opposed to an internal combustion engine which uses a fuel to burn, or an electric which has to have heavy batteries.
As crazy as it sounds, there are hundreds of experimenters doin...

13. How To Be A Green Hot Rodder
Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:03:22
How to what? That has to be a typo!
You can't be green and drag race. You can't be a tree hugger and drift. You can't care about the ozone layer and dirt track with a sprint car or even a lowly little Street Stock!
Okay, you may be right about some of those because the rules call for certain mo...
14. Writing: Putting Together A Story For A Graphic Novel
Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:04:30
The problem I have seen so far in my start for my little project, is I have been a hobby novelist (never published) for a long time now. Almost 25 years, to be honest. I have never really thought about being published and mostly just write for myself. For practice, for exercise of my imagination ...
15. Creating A Graphic Novel
Books, Poetry & Writing - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:11:26
I beg to differ when someone tells me that it takes talent to write, and talent to draw, and talent to create. Talent, while it does tend to be easier for some, is only in the eye of the beholder. It is no harder to create a Web Comic or Graphic Novel these days than it is to play a computer game...
16. A Gig Check List For The Band
Books, Poetry & Writing - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:11:28

20. Rest In Peace Everchangingart.com
Squidoo Community - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:02:02
For all intents and purposes, there will never be another site like ECA. It was where we lived to perform. It broke bad habits and created new ones.
Someday, I hope Morten will tell us that he has revived it in a new incarnation, but until then it will live here in my memory.
Here is a screen s...
21. False Hope Band
Internet - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:04:30
Forged in Arkansas by a collaboration of three veterans (one of which was from Desert Storm) and two brothers from the deserts of Arizona.

22. Writing: Keystone's NaNoWriMo Experience
Music - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:05:28
The image at the left might catch some of you by surprise. In 2008 I finished my piece The Neighbor's Basement a few days early even with band gigs and my 9.5 hour plus drive time work day. Why I could not get situated to play in 2009 I am not sure. 2010, saw the start but no completion of Wyldhe...
23. Using Twitter For Your Band
Books, Poetry & Writing - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:02:10
Everybody's talking about twitter these days, but I'll not say too much about how to acquire followers. That can be found anywhere. And most of the information that some of them will tell you works for a while but falls flat later. I'll get into that in a moment.
Maybe you already have registere...
24. The History of 101 Floorcovering
Music - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:05:30
At one time, 101 Floocovering had three stores open across the US. Our original location in Cottonwood, Arizona, my uncle's shop in Ft.

27. Computer Antiques - Commodore
Books, Poetry & Writing - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:11:26
I was digging through some of my old stuff the other day and ran across several interesting little tid bits that I'm sure will inspire memories of late nights learning BASIC or trying to conquer Castle Wolfenstien. If you don't remember those days then you might still find the cost of stuff and t...
28. How To Get Funding By Using Kickstarter
computers-and-electronics - Sat, 25 Aug 2012 16:56:59
I am involved in several projects that outside money would be really handy. My online ventures make a little here and there but not what I would need to push these projects out the door. I need to take a much needed vacation from the day job to complete these projects, and when you live pay check...
29. Recycle Your Carpet
arts-and-design - Fri, 17 Aug 2012 05:09:42
So you just had your living room recarpeted. What are you going to do with the old carpet? The installers will probably just take it back to the shop and throw it away. Why don't you recycle your used carpet?

33. Putting Together Your Band's Song List
Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:10:20
Another part of our series: How To Build Your Band
It is safe to say that even the best of artists create on stage lists for their musicians to play from. This keeps down confusion and helps the flow of the show.
Pulling from experience, shows can be made or broke with simple deviations from wh...
34. Writing: The Making Of The Neighbor's Basement Graphic Novel
Music - Sun, 22 May 2011 18:35:25
I will delve into a couple of the techniques that I am using to create my latest project, Neighbor's Basement, a graphic novel. This is actually not the one I had in mind to start with, but I had my friends on FaceBook vote for which story they thought was worthy of my first GN attempt.
35. Advertise Your Band Through Merchandise
arts-and-design - Fri, 20 May 2011 23:58:08

38. Keystone Kustoms Project: Patriot - 1976 Dodge Colt Carousel
cars - Fri, 22 Apr 2011 23:26:46
If I have my way, Patriot is slotted for a total rebuild with a Dodge Magnum V-6, and the car will be used for SCCA SOLO-II or drift competitions, along with some forays into audio competitions as well. Should Patriot be hauled off for the scrap that he's actually worth right now, he might br...

healthy-living - Sat, 23 Apr 2011 12:21:36
Purchased from my grandmother was my first "running" vehicle, this 1978 Chevrolet LUV concreted forever my addiction to little trucks. I will always be cursed to have one at least as a project. Currently, I have three.
Photos are forthcoming and I will be documenting each process of the rebuildi...
41. Gunslinger Girl
cars - Sat, 23 Apr 2011 01:08:43
I have a strange fascination with this anime and manga series by Yu Aida. I really can't explain it other than it deals with much of what one of my own stories deals with as far as the effects of using kids to be snipers and dark-ops operatives.
One reviewer says, "A second chance at life, but a...

Most musicians that love to play live; hate the studio. But the bands that ...
44. The Ax Attic - The Guitar Player's Paradise
Music - Mon, 17 Jan 2011 01:33:19
The original concept for the ax attic comes from a short story that I am developing into a novel. It is the only guitar shop and luthier that the band Blown Pageant buys from.
It is located (in the novel) in a 1930's Movie Theater. Slightly run down but well worth the rummage.
Well, the real Ax...
45. Your Band's Practice Techniques
Music - Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:29:55
Everyone knows the analogy is true. And this is why, in order to make a successful band, it is well known that you can't just jump in, no matter how good you are.

Music - Fri, 31 Dec 2010 05:31:54
A lot has been said from a variety of sources on this subject, I'd like to condense what has been said and add my own two cents.

50. Getting The Gig
Music - Fri, 31 Dec 2010 05:29:04
Getting the gigs to play for your band can be a delicate balancing act of persistence and patience. You bug the venue too much and you go to the bottom of the list. Don't call enough and they will forget about you quickly.
The key, as it is with any business, to getting gigs is to come off as a ...

52. Finding All Of The Members Of Your Band
Music - Fri, 31 Dec 2010 05:28:49
It is very important for you to understand that just they people playing the music are not all of the true band members.

53. Buying Equipment For Your Band
Music - Fri, 31 Dec 2010 05:28:44
OK, we all would like to go into Guitar Center and drop our credit card on the counter and buy the place out.

Buying locally c...

55. Band Merchandising
Music - Fri, 31 Dec 2010 05:26:39
One of the best way for a band to make money for it's continued music production is merchandise. It's well known that selling your CD can make you some money, but Tee-shirts are usually better in the bang for the buck at gigs.
Then again if can come up with a gimmick, you can rake in the extra d...
56. The Hobby Green House
Music - Fri, 31 Dec 2010 05:26:38
Greenhouses have always been a good way to grow reliable produce during the winter or dry months, but many people just don't have the room to have a full sized or even a medium sized green house.
For those people, or any one who gardens as a hobby, I offer these areas of advice.

58. The History of Arachnid Audio
business-and-work - Thu, 30 Dec 2010 22:15:08

cars - Thu, 30 Dec 2010 22:09:10

61. Aqua Gardening
healthy-living - Thu, 30 Dec 2010 22:06:30
Hydroponics has become a huge new market for growing food. Plants can be grown in smaller areas and this also makes use of a greenhouse much better. Many hydroponics can be used indoors in garages and basements.
