Booga Booga

    Prev Next

    So I finally got a chance to try a real shot.

    My new IR debris detector that I showed in the previous photo worked on a stupid aluminum can, so I decided to risk old creepy here.

    I guess I will just totally rebuild the old IR set-up since I didn't find out what was wrong with it.

    It will be nice to have a spare.

    So, this is a dolls head filled with red gelatin, two arms from another doll glued on top for extra weirdness, being blown up with a fire cracker.


    Booga Booga is from David Steinberg.

      This is one of those that's creepy both before AND after it gets blowed up reel good...

      Thanks for the comments. It was great to get the set-up running again and then take a fun picture.

      It's a rare example of a picture that turned out better than I visualized it. The gelatin eruption from the top of the head is in great visual balance with the arms.

      Yes, creepy.
      So, I imagine you had this thing chilling in your refrigerator for several hours while the gelatin sets? Just wondering if there is anyone else in your household and what their views are regarding your research.
      I try to imagine what my wife would do if she opened the refrigerator and saw this thing staring at her... :)

      Gelatin, head, refrigerator, yes...

      My wife.

      She kind of gets a kick out of it. She is not a house beautiful, suburban perfection type girl, so my mess in the garage (which does get into the house) doesn't get her goat.

      We are also the couple in the movie theater who are laughing when everyone else is quiet, so....

      Seeing the first shot, I would never have thought of an explosion. Too good, just perfect!
