Check Out This Big Pile Of "Bull". I Brought Him Home From The Goodwill A Few Weekends Back. Status: Brutal Bovine!
Mr. Mod is slowly curating quite a collection Brutalist art and stuff. First was the light sconce, then came the cool clock and now this pissed bull. Why is the bull so pissed? Hmmmm...
...Probably 'cuz somebody chipped his little horn. Awwwe...poor little bull. Gotta fix that. A
little rock hard water putty will fix that right up. Then I'll have to paint it. Not sure about what
direction to take there. I could just try to touch up the horn area or go bold.
Oooo...how about a bold bright RED? It'd look great red with dry brushed black or brick red
in the crevices. I don't know nuthin' about dry brushing. What, dab the darker color in there
then wipe off the excess with a rag quick before it drys completely? Maybe I'll just shoot it shiny
black. I'm not sure just yet.
It was only $4 so I don't think if I mess it up it'll be too much of a loss. Maybe I'll just be too
lazy...I mean "have too many projects going on"...and just dab a little gold paint on that teeny
little chip and call it a day.
Oh, and remember that Telescope I got from (the same) Goodwill a while back? Check out
this picture of the moon that I shot with my camera all rigged up to it! It's not perfect. I've got
to get the collimation worked out better but the thing was a real mess when I got it. I'm really
digging getting out in this nice weather and doing a little star gazing. It's not super powerful but
I can see the moons of Jupiter quite easily. I'm going to get a special lens to double its power
so that hopefully I'll be able to see the rings of Saturn and the details of Jupiter.
