SATURDAY SCHLITZ BLOGGING
ok, i can't wait til i'm done with outhouses. SO, we begin saturday not outhouse blogging.
so, after graduating art school, i got a poorly paying job at schlitz studios. a tiffany reproduction stained glass studio. mainly doing shades and windows. and making glass. jim schlitz, pothead learned from the old guys who worked for tiffany and stained glass guys who made all the piano windows in milwaukee. he had a huge library of old glass in the far back room. room of kokomo crap glass. wood blocks we built shades on. for about 1/2 a year, all i did was wrap copper 'tape' around glass. then grinding. this of course is a dragonfly cut by john who was hired after me. good cutter, but terrible about tones. get to that later. i think this is the one where most of the jewels were opaque, so the buyer sent it back and i had the lovely job of taking out the bad ones and putting in good ones. dragon flies were a bitch. wire border, damn brass overlays. DREMEL work. and some pieces just never fit well. shoulda redone the cutting pattern! not a really good one.
after grinding i learned building the shade on the wood shade block. then soldering.
we made shades exactly like tiffany, but with electric irons. we could even fool tiffany experts. yeah, that good. and jim's glass was like tiffany's. soft. easy to cut. in the last years i even did some cutting.
yes. i have a shitload of glass in the basement.

Hapless Robbers Target Bar Filled With Bikers
The robbers chose the wrong night to burst into the club where the Southern Cross Cruiser Club have their monthly meeting.
About 50 burly bikers fought back with tables and chairs -- pretty much anything that wasn't bolted down. One would-be robber was tied up; the other in the hospital.
Police arrested both.
"These guys were absolutely dumb as bricks," Jerry Vancornewal, leader of the bikers, told CNN Thursday. "I can't believe they saw all the bikes parked up front and they were so stupid that they walked past in."
Vancornewal and his buddies were at the Regents Park Sporting and Community Club in Sydney when the two men wearing ski masks stormed in Wednesday night. They yelled at patrons to drop to the floor as they emptied cash registers at the bar.
Hearing the commotion from an adjacent room, Vancornewal and his pals with the Southern Cross Cruiser motorcycle club stomped through to the bar area to intervene.
"They (the robbers) thought they had the upper advantage with their knives and their machetes," Jim Webb, night supervisor of the club, told CNN. "They didn't expect to run into a bunch of guys carrying chairs and tables."
One of the would-be robbers crashed through a plate-glass door and jumped off a balcony.

"All he had to do was push the button and it automatically opened," Webb quipped.
New South Wales police said they arrested the 20-year-old man a short distance away.
The second man made a break for it through the club's service entrance, but the bikers tackled him near a neighbor's fence.
"We just grabbed him, crash-tackled him to the ground, hogtied him with electrical wire and left him for the cops," Vancornewal said.
Police confirmed in a statement that club patrons subdued the second man until officers arrived, but did not provide additional details. The suspect turned out to be a 16-year-old boy.
Both would-be robbers were charged with attempted armed robbery and "face disguised with intent to commit indictable offense," police said.
A third person, who was waiting in a getaway car, took off when the bikers threw pieces of furniture at him, Webb said. Police have not located him.
The Regents Park Sporting and Community Club is a place where locals come to enjoy drinks and take part in various games: cricket, soccer, lawn bowling. The biking enthusiasts meet there once a month to plan rides and other club activities.
In the last year or so, criminals have struck the club about 10 times, Webb said. And Wednesday night's incident, while unusual, wasn't the most memorable.
"We have these old bingo players and they are really serious about their games," Webb explained. "They do not like to be interrupted."
When robbers barged in one evening and announced that they were holding up the place, the players turned around and testily told them to be quiet.
"They were making it difficult for the players to hear the numbers being called," Webb said. E-mail to a friend
i love how they thought the bingo group was better. but i guess they didn't do any damage.

30 Now take da 1st left at Mesha 2 Sefar, an u c sum hillz in da east.31 Bai Shem,32 kthxbai.
1 So iz dere enni point in bein a Jew enniwai?2 Yes! For wun thing Ceiling Cat givded dem hiz wordz.
3 Suppose sum peeplz duzint beleev an trust Ceiling Cat, does dat cauz Ceiling Cat enni problimz?4 No! Ceiling Cat is riet an if u disagreez u iz rong. Liek teh book sez:
"So u can say 'haha i tolded u so'
5 But spose we iz so bad dat Ceiling Cat proovz how good he iz bai punishin us. Iz dat unfair?6 Well DUH no. Ceiling Cat getz to juj teh whoal wrld.7 Sumwun miet sai "Wel if i iz bad dat maekz Ceiling Cat look good, shudnt i get a cheezburgr for dat?"8 Datz teh saem az sayin "Letz do bad thingz bcz we'll get good rezultz." Sum peeplz saiz we sai dat enniwai but dey iz lyin.
Evriwun iz bad
9 So OK letz sum up. Iz we enni bettr? No!!! We haz areddi sed dat Jews an Gentiles iz both ful of sin.10 Liek teh book sez:
"Dere iz no good peeplz, not evn wun;
11 nobodi undrstandz (dis part is kind of emo LOL)
nobodi triez to find Ceiling Cat.
12 Evribodi iz lookin teh othr wai,
dey iz all worfless;
nobodi duz enni good,
not a singl d00d."
13 "Dere moufz iz liek graevz;
an dere tungz tellz liez."
Dey haz snaek poizn on dere lipz."
14 "Dere moufz iz full of bad wurdz."
15 "Dere clawz iz alwaiz reddi to draw blood;
16 dere iz trubl whaerevr dey goez,
17 an dey duzint evn know ennithin about peece."
18 "Dey iznt afraed of Ceiling Cat neethr, foolz."
19 So if teh law sez ennithin, it sez it to peepl who iz under teh law, so STFU.20 So no wun becomz good by followin teh law. Teh law iz to help us understand about Invisible Errors k.
Whai itz importnt to trust Ceiling Cat
21 So now we knowz about goodness comin from Ceiling Cat. Teh Law an teh profettz tellded us about it.22 We get dis goodness thru beleevin in Jesus.23 Evribodi haz maded Invisible Errors an iznint as good as Ceiling Cat,24 but we can go to hevn enniwai bcz Jesus died to taek awai our Invisible Errors.25 Ceiling Cat did thingz dis wai on purpus,26 to show how niec he iz.
27 So u shudnt be braggin about followin teh law.28 Teh law iznt importnt, beleevin in Jesus iz.29 Ceiling Cat is not just for Jews. He iz for Gentiles too.30 Dere iz onli wun Ceiling Cat, an he wil taek caer of evribodi, Jews an Gentiles both.31 Duz dat mean teh law iz nothin? No LOL!!!
Mark 4- v.1-22
Jesus haz teh storee tymes
1 An so Jesus luvd teh oshunfront properteez an he wen thar to teech teh guise about thingz an ther were so many guise there that Jesus was like "lolz, too menny guise on teh beech, gtg teech on a boat frm teh oshun, an u guise can lissen frm the beech wich is a pretty sweete deal if u ask me."
2 An so he toght them teh lessunz but it wuz those lessunz that were akshully about one thingz even tho Jesus sed the otherz an u had to figur it out urself, wich is hard to do, and he sed:
3 "O hai, so once thar waz a planter gui;
4 An he wuz plantin hiz gardenz an sum of teh seedz got in teh rong playce an the birdz, they cam to eet teh seedz
5 An som of teh seedz they got put on teh roks wich is a dum plaice to plant teh seedz cuz thars no dirt there but teh seedz they groo up newayz
6 An tehn teh sun it came up an teh seedz grone on teh roks, they got pwned bai teh sun cuz sun is too hot 4 teh plantz
7 An some othur seedz, they got put bai teh plantz with teh skary spiky th0rnz an teh th0rnz sux0rx cuz they sckweeze teh plants to ded and teh plantz make no frootz.
8 An sum other seedz they got in teh good dirtz an they groo and groo and mayde teh frootz an made like bazilyunz of frootz."
9 An so Jesus sed "Did u here that guise? Or r u guise def?"
10 An hiz 12 frends, latr that dai were lyke "O hai Jesus, wtf were you even saying in the boat?"
11 An Jesus sed "Hay, u guise are sposed to no wat i was talkn about cuz u hav teh mistery solving skillz, ur lyke sherlok homes an stuff, but those othr guise, the ones on teh beech, they don no teh mistery stuffz so they has to lissen to mai storeez and figur it out themsalvez, lolz."
12 So they can lookz at teh thingz and no wat color those thingz r but not no what it iz an they can here mai wurds and no what teh wurdz r but not get what ahm sayin, but if they r like "o hai Jesus an Ceiling Cat, we r vry sry for bein dum, we can haz halp?" then they can undrstand mai storeez.
13 An Jesus was like "So guise what ahm sayin is if u don no how to undrstand mai storee about teh planterz then u don know much of nething. So I halpz u guise so u stop bein dum."
14 "Teh. Planterz. Wuz. Plantin. Mai. An. Ceiling. Cats. Wurdz.
15 An so teh seedz were rilly mai an Ceiling Cats wurdz an sumtimes teh devilcat, hez lyke teh burdz in teh storee who takes teh stray seedz awai.
16 An tehn there r teh guise who hav teh stonz 4 grownd and mai w0rdz r sooper cool an they r like "omg, new seedz, these pwn, thx Jesus"
17 An but these guise r dum as roks and made of roks so they git excytid about mai wordz jus at furst an then as soone as they hav somethin go rong wit them they r all lyke "omg, Jesus, srsly, ur w0rdz sux0rz, they don w0rkz anymoar. thx but nothxbai."
18 An those seedz that git on teh skary th0rnz, those th0rnz guise here mai w0rdz
19 An they say "o hai jesus, this is nice but i lykes othur thingz like teh moneyz and teh buttsecks, sry" an mai w0rdz dont w0rkz 4 those guise.
20 An then there r good guise who r like "O hai Jesus, u pwn alwayz even wehn mai lyfe kinda sux0rz so lemme maike u sum frootz an u can hav it for dinnerz, lolz."
21 An then Jesus sed "If you haz candel do u put it under a bukkit or under ur bedz? no thats silly, u has to put it on candelstik, rite?
22 An u cant hide nothin frm me or Celing Cat cuz we seez all ur sekritz an moar, lolz, u no how Celing Cat seez u doin things, rotflolz."
