A Mask Among Many: What's 28 prints in 3 hours? Oct 17, 2014 12:30:56 GMT -6
Zoom: I did an edition of 28 prints in 3 hours. Went home exhausted and covered in ink. Took a nap. Dreamt about printing. #artschool Oct 15, 2014 20:10:24 GMT -6 *
sapphire: October's Swift Scribbles prompt is up here! Oct 14, 2014 23:02:46 GMT -6
sapphire: Haha, good call. Oct 11, 2014 23:48:34 GMT -6
Raphael: Actually this is awesome stuff. I am going to start it as a thread. Oct 10, 2014 19:18:13 GMT -6
sapphire: Hospitals with generators would last a while, but generators die eventually, too. I'd just get my hands on a can opener and stock up on lots and lots of canned goods. Oct 10, 2014 19:09:59 GMT -6
sapphire: I feel like few people would survive, though, depending on the nature of the disaster that caused all electronics to die. We're far too dependent on that kind of thing. Even our communications. Oct 10, 2014 19:08:53 GMT -6
sapphire: I love the thought you've put into this. Transportation-wise, I would definitely go for a horse. There are SO MANY that are trained and rideable, and yes you have to feed them and they do die eventually, but you can breed them and they will eat grass/hay. Oct 10, 2014 19:07:22 GMT -6
Zoom: Okay I'm stopping here. I've seriously spent so much time thinking this out Oct 10, 2014 12:00:07 GMT -6
Zoom: RADIO. Easy to keep radio going. I can imagine some old dude with time on his hands and a few spare batteries keeping it at it just for kicks and a little hope Oct 10, 2014 11:59:47 GMT -6
Zoom: Roads are going to be hard to keep clear though. Mountain bikes will be a massive commodity. Eventually as they rust and break horses and mules will take over again Oct 10, 2014 11:58:49 GMT -6
Zoom: Are they going to be moving around much? I bet I could rig up, if I had some time and help, a human-powered minivan-type-thing with a few bicycles Oct 10, 2014 11:58:06 GMT -6
Zoom: Solar panels but WOW so hard to fix if they fail. Wind is hard to keep running. Hydro is basically impossible unless you know what you're doing. Oct 10, 2014 11:57:10 GMT -6
Zoom: Batteries while they last Oct 10, 2014 11:56:43 GMT -6
Zoom: Propane Oct 10, 2014 11:56:22 GMT -6
Zoom: Glass bottles and mason jars are SO HANDY but so hard to make; I bet people would throw them around a lot less Oct 10, 2014 11:56:01 GMT -6
Zoom: Lighters, I bet there would be raiding, lighters. If there's raiding also medicine from pharmacies. Go for the antibiotics and disinfectants. People will certainly head for the painkillers sneakily. Oct 10, 2014 11:55:41 GMT -6
Zoom: Sorry, I've thought about this A LOT Oct 10, 2014 11:54:14 GMT -6
Zoom: You can keep food pretty cold with two jars with wet sand between, good for short-term storage. Plus all the old ways of curing meat would come back Oct 10, 2014 11:54:08 GMT -6
Zoom: I can imagine live music - people playing together - would become a thing again, a kind of community cohesive Oct 10, 2014 11:52:48 GMT -6
