THE GOLDEN, RULE

Local police buying up old Russian nuclear warheads to stockpile in case teenager steals pocketbook. Local police hiring retired Nazi mad scientists to design nerveless Frankentroopers to combat illegal food truck scourge. Six Swat teams with grenade launchers brought in to apprehend Central Park flasher in filthy trench coat. Coca Cola factory protected by missile-launching police force from sugar addled Tweens with caffeine tracking apps. Local library closed and scrapped, paper smashed down into bullets for 100-round-a-second pellet guns to take out illiterate homeless mobs. You never know when you might need a sound cannon to take out a kid with a candy bar and a squirt gun. Close the schools, expand the prisons, fence off the water sources, levitate the rich off the surface, burn the ghettos let’s go why wait. The real Golden Rule: “keep them living in fear”

“Mr. and Mrs. Karsy, an inventive and original “team” on the variety stage, have created a new and extrodinary musical instrument which is known as the Giant Myriophone (Myriphon). It is the work of a genius and when under full swing produces music similar to that of a full string band. Only two persons are required to produce this immense volume of sound. “The Myriophone has the appearance of a large screen, with a number of wheels fitted on the front. These wheels have strings fitted on them and look much like bicycle wheels. They are set in motion by four lusty stage hands concealed in the rear, and the performers who have a small stick of wood in each hand touch the strings, thus making a note, which can be prolonged to any length. The Myriophone consists of twenty-five discs, each with eighty strings, making 2,000 in all. The sounding boards are made of the same wood as is used in pianos. Regular piano strings are used.” (via » Karsy’s Giant Myriphon)

Holy what the what?!?! Skylight Books’ amazing zinestress Jenn Witte has this AWESOME project that combines bikes and books!  Thanks to Razorcake for the hot tip. Can’t wait to see this ladies on the streets!

From their Indiegogo: “We’re building a multimedia collection of feminist books, artifacts and ephemera to make available to as wide an audience in Los Angeles as possible, by bicycle.

We promote a feminist approach in three ways: through the riders who participate; the personality of the items donated to the library; and the use of bicycles. Our collection will be searchable online, and available both at regularly scheduled locations as well as at special events (CicLAVia, farmers’ markets, fairs and parades, etc). ”
