    Tape Cover Puzzles

    Hey Now, family! My online shop, SHMOGGER'S DEN (www.shmoggersden.com) (www.etsy.com/shmoggersden) offers jigsaw puzzles of my old decorated tape covers.

    I also have shirts, mugs and posters of my tape cover art from 20+ years ago. Furthur-more, I make the same sort of setlist art with computer graphic design. Shmogger's Den is the only place for tape cover puzzles in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD!

    Seeing as how we're all gonna be self-quarantining, what better way to pass the time than with GD-themed puzzles? (Oh yeah, and Phish too!)

    On the other hand, puzzles are great for parties, with friends working together on different sections of the puzzle. People stroll by, place a few pieces, and stroll off. The whole group feels a sense of satisfaction when it's done. Will the group finish it before the party favors run out?

    Any Shmogger’s Den Puzzle will spark up your living room, and they make UNIQUE GIFTS for your jamband friends or relatives!

    Here are some examples of tape cover art / setlist art / song-themed art from www.shmoggersden.com:

    Hey now! So I have been a…

    Hey now! So I have been a bad boy and in hindsight doing a crowdfunder on Indiegogo for The PowerHitter was against the rules. I hope this does not go down on my permanent record. Been kicked off the block. So I am doing it alone again naturally... If you want one come see me next week at the NYE shows or drop by www.thepowerhitter.com

    Supposed to be a reply to my post below. Doh!

    How a Dead show in 1986 changed my life forever

    I remember getting on the bus Irvine April 12th 1986. A college buddy affectionately named Putz talked me into driving from ASU to Irvine Meadows. ROAD TRIP! Hell in a Bucket opened the set and my mind and I have been enjoying the ride ever since. That was the day I also discovered the most fun way to smoke a joint on Shakedown St. before the show!

    It transformed my life forever.

    You see, not only did I finally "get" the Grateful Dead- I fell in love with a smoke device I learned was called The PowerHitter.

    If you already know about it, you are going to be stoked because I'm bringing them back! I'll have some in SFO for NYE if you want to meet up.

    If you have never heard of it, allow me to turn you on to it.

    It looks like a small water bottle. You put a lit joint into the cap, secure it inside the bottle, cover the carb/hole, and just grip it and rip it. It shoots a steady stream of smoke out of it's special nozzle. Instant shotgun-power-hits. It was love at first sight as I love to smoke joints.

    Problem was close to 10 years ago right before I went to see The Dead, The Doobies, and The Allman Brothers at The Gorge in George, I lost my PowerHitter in a freak beach accident when my Dad to me on a cruise to St. Maarten. Maho beach. Google it.

    Anyhow...I searched everywhere for a replacement and couldn't find them. The original company stopped making them years ago and the knock offs I did find were terrible.

    FINALLY I decided to take matters into my own hands and re-create them and my paint masterpiece.

    Like the timeless music of The Grateful Dead, The PowerHitter is that rare "thing" that brings people together because it's so much fun to use and share with friends. I made a whole bunch and they sold out. I had to order more and sold out again. So now I need to raise some more money to order more and get new tools done. I have a container of them coming in by end of month and need to sell them as quick as I can to get more before Chinese New Years kicks in or we are Power-hit-less.

    Would you like to try one? Holler at me and see you NYE.

    Click https://igg.me/at/powerhitterco to find out about my crowdfunding project - and please support us any way you can. And, please share with your friends. See you on down the road.

    hand made 13 Pointed Bolt wall hanging

    I have a piece that I made recently which is done with wood, acrylic, and epoxy, using the Lichtenberg technique. If you aren't familiar with it, it is a method of electrocuting wood with high voltage. In this case, I used a microwave transformer, which is about 2,500 volts and 400 milliamps. I also used a neon sign transformer which is 15000 volts, but only 35 milliamps. The amps are really the dangerous part.

    Unlike burning into wood with an electric wood burner, this is more like if you can picture attaching 2 jumper cables and then turning it on. so you can't really control it other than turning it off and on and minor things like using magnets or different levels of solution (there are many varieties you can make, which are things like borax or baking soda mixed with water to create an electrolyte solution that help aid they electricity travel across the top of the normally non-conductive wood). I used a piece of 2“ thick pine, made it into a circle then carved out the 13 pointed star in the middle by hand.
    After that I Lichtenberged it, creating the fractal patterns (some say they look like electricity, or trees, or blood vessels, or river deltas from above, or lightning, etc etc). I then clean them out, as charcoal is produced, and then sand it
    After that I painted the red and the blue sections lightly with acrylic as if it were a stain. I then make a barrier or dam around the outside of it and poor epoxy into the center, three different times (about 1/2 inch or so each time) over the course of a few days has it needs to dry and cure each time. I also had in Rare Earth Minerals which are basically powdered metallic pigments. So each time I did the poor in the lightning bolt I used a Pearl White, and two different types of red on the red side and two different types of blue on the blue side all while by hand swirling them into little spirals throughout before the epoxy has time to dry creating depth and patterns. I also put some iridescent pigment inside the bolt itself to react to certain lighting.
    The last step is a final pour of epoxy over the entire thing all while keeping it level and letting it's just barely drip over the sides too in case it and make it smooth.
    The final step is to sand it and polish it. All in all it took about three weeks. Hopefully you will be able to see it and if you are anyone you know would be interested or likes it or has ideas made like commissioned I'd be happy to help!

    "Dead Head Stories"
    Hey, catch this: Dead Head Stories, put together by a bunch of kind souls, is a hard copy, coffee table type book of individual stories about adventures and happenings from the the days on the road and between. It's supporting a new a non-profit venture created by some creative heads as a way of chronicling these five decades of music and happenings. from the below link: "This book is crafted from thousands of stories (2400+) and comments contributed by Deadheads as part of a collective non-profit project. Telling the stories of the extraordinary relationship between the band and the audience. 100% of the money goes to printing, publishing, and shipping. No one gets a paycheck 100% for all volunteers." Friends, the non-profit will be supporting GD related charities, the book will be published very soon and it could still use your support. One more thing, it "will" set one of those Guinness-type records for the number of authors, and is a very very cool thing documenting the scene from our point of view. Please check out this link, and support the family as best you can, thanks- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1685921250/social-media-grassroots…

I have some exquisite carvings in Guatemalan Jadeite. All new stuff from jades I collected myself in Guatemala and fashioned by the master mesoamerican carver Ea Orgo. Ea prefers to call them prayer beads. They are my offering to the Jade Connoisseurs of the world. I also have lots of Guatemalan tipico and weavings. I have all kinds of bags and purses as well as quilts. Interested in buying? E-Mail me here or chalchuit@yahoo.com. I will send photos and I can do some large orders on the tipico. The jades are all one of a kind carvings. I have rough jade too. All Jadeite.

This is a theoretical question for the moment, but might be of interest to others also--do you take special orders? Specifically, I'm thinking the designs on the tapestries would look great on curtains, which would be much bigger pieces of fabric. Is that practical?

Your shirts are incredible! Will definitely be buying some. Thank you for posting. Oh by the way, I lived near Burlington, Wisconsin for 9 years in my childhood, actually close to Alpine Valley before there were shows there. Dates me. Peace to you and keep on, keepin on with your dyes. If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. Wiliam Blake

Mary, they do look great as curtains :-) I sold off the bigger stuff I had this past summer. I've been wanting to get back to the basement and get the gears rolling again. The only problem with special orders is the time and material cost and the potential for an item to not turn out or to not be what someone else envisioned. I've told people in the past that it is best to look at what I have and see if there's anything they like. I would have no problem with suggestions or inquiries though. Here's a link to the biggest dye I've made so far...I think it's 7'x15' The file is 447 KB in size Tie Dye Hal, They built Alpine when I was 10...

I have a new CD of original songs that follow in the spirit of the 60's music scene. This is fitting, since that was my "coming of age" time. Check out samples, download tracks, the whole disc, or even get a real hard copy of it at:http://www.cdfreedom.com/artists/garyblanchard/ Gary Blanchard http://www.cdfreedom.com/artists/garyblanchard/
