Friends, neighbors, dearest associates, I have neglected you once again. It's been 2 weeks plus since my last post (seems like about 3 and a half days, but I guess time flies when the Denver Nuggets are backhanding the everloving crap out of every opposing ball club that steps on the court with them), and to be perfectly honest I really have nothing of significant merit to share with you today either.
Shocking, I know.
Anyway, part of the reasoning for my absence can honestly be attributed to the NBA playoffs and the aforementioned Denver-Nuggets-based domination that's been happening all over the floor (this is not what those in the sports world would call a "common occurrence" in the history of the Nuggs), while another part can be written off to the fact that I'm working a lot these days, but the REAL root of the problem here is that I'm working on a project of significant size and complexity, and it's taking me a long time to get it done.
As such, I think it would only be appropriate to milk the hell out of the project and get at least 8 or 9 posts out of it. Don't you agree? Of course you do.
I'll be keeping this first post brief as it's about a quarter after 2 in the morning right now and blogger is shutting itself down for site maintenance in 15 minutes, so here's the brassest of all tacks:
1. I'm redoing and expanding my speaker media cabinet - a project which would have to be seen as the single most successful project this site has ever seen in terms of popularity.
2. I stripped all of the simulated wood grain paneling off the front door of the speaker, and plugged 2 of the holes on that panel with wood. Why? I'll tell you that later when I'm feeling funnier and more awake, that's why.
Here's a picture of one of the plugged up holes (overflowing with the always appreciated liberal dosage of Gorilla Glue), surrounded by partially stripped simulated wood grain paneling:
And here's what the front facade looked like once both holes had been plugged up, all of the simulated wood grain paneling had been removed (partially by razor blade, partially by low grit sand paper), and the whole thing had been smoothed down to mimic the texture of an infant's ass, assuming of course that said infant is made out of particle board manufactured in the 1970's:
Here's that same shot, only slightly more epic looking:
So what are my plans for this newly exposed door? For that my friends, you'll just have to wait and see. Should be unbelievably delicious though, like a bowl full of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, except instead of normal milk there's Strawberry Quick.
Mmm. Now that's good.
