preparation :: bent festival 2007

sometimes things break. you can't go back, the excitement is replaced with only-if's, what could have beens, and why me's. as much fun as bending is, when you destroy a toy you treasured, it sucks. especially if it was a jem. i broke my vintage fisher price creative music maker, weeks before a performance. a real great showcase piece. finding another is rare, even by eBay standards. luckily, a friendly stranger by way of google, helped me replace my baby.

the new version is safer, and designed to not get wires crossed. remember that most old toys don't have protection circuits. i'm developing a habit of adding diodes to protect crossing the wires. i'm totally obsessed with using altoids cases now. the graphics make the pieces look like pop art.
