Fridays, amirite?

We’re heeeere! Yay.

Looks like it’s video o’clock! Here we go.

Mongolian sinew backed bow

A silent, thoughtful short film on how to make a traditional Mongolean composite bow by hand.

Hard work. Very old technique. Amazing.

Holy SH*T!!! I made my own cheese at home


A very indepth documentary by Pro Home Cooks.

I won’t be tackling this anytime soon but he makes the process look super interesting. Tons of other cooking and baking projects on that channel. Worth a look.

Hacking my arm prosthesis to output CV so that it plugs into my synth: Thought-controlled music!

“Together with Chrisi from KOMA Elektronik and my husband Daniel, I am in the process of building a device (the “SynLimb”) that attaches to my arm prosthesis instead of the prosthetic hand. The SynLimb converts the electrode signals that my prosthesis picks up from my residual limb into control voltages (CV) for controlling my modular synthesizer.”

What a crazy era this is! Amazing project.

Scientology Magazine Reviewed

“My friend Matthew gave me this Scientology member magazine. Here’s my review.”

It’s basically a giant ad for how “great” Scientology is. Yikes.

Carrie Poppy hosts a podcast called “Oh No Ross And Carrie” which investigates cults and belief systems. They did an eight episode investigation (Part 1 here) into Scientology in which they actually joined it and then reported on all of their training, and fees, and more fees.

It is interesting and they are both super entertaining.

Have an excellent weekend.
