I made a spare key to my apartment, It's stiff turning the core but it works!

It's a less common 6 pin key that's often 'controlled' needing a lock smith to duplicate instead of the local hardware store. All I wanted was a basic emergency key, so I bought a couple blanks online and went at one with a file.

Nathan Rabin, a pop-culture media writer, wrote a book chronicling the entire catalog of Weird Al songs, titled The Weird Accordion to Al, in this book, he partnered with an artist named Felipe Sobreiro to illustrate the book, themed on Nathan's writing about the song. Nathan liked the artwork so much, they decided to release the illustrations as a coloring book titled, The Weird A-Coloring to Al. I have both books because I'm a fan of Weird Al, Nathan Rabin and Felipe Sobreiro. I have not colored in this book, partly because I like the illustrations just fine. What I did do is use one of the illustrations as a template for my pumpkin:

I made this at a work-related pumpkin carving charity event. No one got it. That's OK, it's all for me.

The text says, "Smells Like Nirvana" - the title of the Weird Al "Smells Like Teen Spirit" parody. The illustration is Weird Al as the Nirvana logo. I am unusually proud of this, even though it's not my artwork.

This is our latest batch. The three different pinks one was made by a friend of ours.

ES did our folding.

I tied and dyed.

ES did a pair of shorts. She centered the mandalas on the kegs.

We have another shirt under ice right now.

We just did our first glitch tie dye and it looks so fucking good.

DUI, I let the shirt cure for about 24 hours after the ice finished melting.

It came out great, canít wait to make more.

ES and I diid our second batch of glitch tie-dyes.

I used happycat(hc), dyespin(ds), dharma (d)and grateful dyes(gd).

I soaked the shirts in soda ash, hand rung them out the did a spin cycle. My wife folded them Monday, they sat overnight.

I applied the dye and ice (DUI) at about 11 am Tuesday morning.

Throughout the dye, temps here in San Jose were between a low of 58 and a high of 75.

I added ice a couple of times throughout the day. The ice was melted by Wednesday morning, I let them sit and process moving them inside the garage to avoid an afternoon drizzle.

The shirts looked really dark and I worried that I had been too heavy handed with the dye, but they came out pretty good.

Thursday afternoon, I rinsed in cold, added some dawn, rinsed in hot, soaked, and then did a couple of machine washes and dried.

Each shirt has 5 zones.



1. 4X moody blue, wild garden, candy pop, wild garden, moody blue(all dyespin dark horse)




2 4X moody blue (DS), robins egg (d), moss green (d), chartreuse (d), lemon yellow (gd)



3 LG Dyenamite(d), red wine (d), purple twilight (ds), true purple (gd), moody blue (ds)





4 XL ember (hc), sultry (hc), hot hibiscus (d), enchanted sunset (hc), lemon yellow (gd)

The dyenamite red lids take the n the shirt or the onesie that I used it on, not sure why, I got much better results with it previously.

For future dyes Iím going to make the central band thinner (especially on the large 4xl shirts)as it dominates the shirts.

I like moss green, but itís very earthy. Iíll try a different brighter green next time.

I loved how candy pop in particular but all the dyes split along the glitch pattern.

I would say these are getting great, but they started great.
The first one is tail lights on rainy pavement, the second one is tail lights on rainy pavement after being dipped into a vat of acid.

The second one makes me think of an 8 or 16 but map sort of like civilization. The moss green just looks so earthy. I see a shoreline with shallow water light robins egg giving way to deep water moody blue. The green is mountainous jungle with the yellows being plains/savannah.


ES’s folds are doing a lot of the work, but like with many things, getting good supplies helps. The dyes I use are high quality with many being formulated for ice dying.

Expect to see a lot more glitches.

I'm not a huge fan of the common tie-dye style, but the glitches appeal to me.

The mandalas and the glitches are made using sharply-creased folds, which I find a lot easier than your traditional tie-dye shapes like spirals. With those you bunch the fabric up in a more organic/chaotic way, and I find it unweidly.

For the creases I use a long metal ruler and I can make them really sharp. Our friend said it looked like a fun tweaker activity, I told her my aderall is my business.

So now I'm thinking about and looking around for other designs I can make with the kinds of folds I like.

Some action shots.

First you do the glitch folds from the bottom to the top, then the same folds from left to right. Once you have the square, you do the fan folds at a 45-degree angle.

The whole exercise gives a real challah-braiding vibe. It's fun and meditative.
