[Downsizing Zeal] Take Only Memories

I built this cane out of a deep appreciation for Zatoichi. I needed a memento of this appreciation. It moved from my teenaged home, to my first apartment, moved again, before landing with my assorted walking staves to collect dust. I’d never thought I would need to use it until a few weeks ago. I’m glad to have it, but it got me thinking about future adventures and whether I’ll collect any mementos or souveniers…

[Novel 02] Sammohinian Candy Dispersal

I enjoy stories with direct, earnest narrative perhaps most? Whether it’s a review that outlines the reasons why one might want to play a videogame or outlining a process for improving their lives, or perhaps many of the stories in “The Story” like Novel 01 and Novel 02, I guess I like clear storytelling? While I do enjoy indirect stories, I might generally, without saying it, as a rule, say I enjoy earnest, honest, easily-comprehensibly of narratives.

[Toolbox Builds] Improving The Gluebox

Since writing about building this gluebox, I lost it, found it, then realized its unwieldiness. What this version-two-point-zero needed was a smaller box, unmistakable for another, along with a project worth deciding on all useful glue elements. That project is a future-retro “console” with television and two-tiered rolling rack. I want to reinforce its rickitiness and do what I can to turn it into something that, either in the apartment-mansion or elsewhere, will be cool.

[Book Review] Every Tool’s A Hammer, Savage

My favorite books include writer’s resources because they help the reader express through writing better how they interpret the world. Communication like this is useful in all situations. Although Adam Savage freely admits not to be a narrative writer in Every Tool’s A Hammer, he does offer similar resources. If you can learn to maintain your workspace, document your to-dos, and most importantly, work with deadlines, then you can achieve your goals; whatever you’re making.

Rating: ★★★★★ [5/5]

Toolbox Builds: Gluebox

My favorite pair of shoes are falling apart. They’re past the point of looking professional, and I wanted to repair and customize them, so got this crazy multi-purpose adhesive to try out. I couldn’t sleep two nights ago… so I got the worse shoe, the glue, and learned what not to do. Halfway through, with a hand sticky from glue, a box I did find to prop up the shoe. Another coat of glue and I realized what I should do. Put together a formal glue toolbox and post with further ado.
