Saturday Matinee – Glassblowing, Giant Rabbits, Paul Reubens, Delinquents, Riding the Curb

Saturday, 13 August 2011

I took glassblowing in college in the middle of winter. Pure awesome. The instructors all had scars, and our own teacher accidentally sat on glow worm. Burned his ass in glass class.

The biggest danger was blowing the bubble. Inhale super-heated air by accident and you’re gonna die. [h/t Woosk]
