New Weekend Projects Answered

what do you think of the new weekend projects with kipkay at MAKE? I personally really don't like them. Coming home on a friday to relax, watch a new project that starts turning the gears in your head to create something really imaginative. Now I come home to a droll (yet clear) voice that you don't even want to sit through the whole project. I do not get the creative inspiration from the new ones as from the bre ones. everything bre made had potential for creative add ons. Mousey the junkbot, that is so cool and easily branch off of. Beam bots, inspiring for creative electronics? Theremin, intro to a cool instrucment, that goes for the mellophone too etc.etc.etc I don't need a video to make something look uglier, bigger, fatter, less portable that sucks hours out of my free time. Cutting a book to put something in it. On the popular video areas bre did it, but made it imaginative kipkay did it, but sexy in the front, I mean come on Kipkay did it AGAIN except for taking off of the cases of electronics, taking out connectors and hard wiring everything instead, where's the imagination! I mean I could see if you made it better than before, but come on!!! anyone's thoughts?

Kipkay? On Make?

Good grief. Ah, well, at least I'll have something to listen to next time I have insomnia - that man drones!

Oh, and the videos are on Metacafe. What a surprise. Not At least they'll be easier to avoid there. I'll be sticking to the pdf files of the podcast makes from now on.

I think it is pretty cool that MAKE took him on to their team. Most of his projects are anusing, but some can be a little tough if one doesn't have the correct supplies.

How do you pronounce "meh" ? Like "me", or like "may" without the final "i" sound ?
