I heard a rumor about some people running around, Air Raid Sirens, Alien eggs dropping out, the world fighting back, something like a Dr.Strangelove H-Bomb scene, a big huge battle, explosions and fire. But maybe it was all a dream

Judging by what I see on your IndieGoGo page, you are already recruiting ground troops to battle the Machine!

Someone could get hurt! But the battle will be EPIC!

Weird - I had nearly that exact same dream.

Mine had a giant Fez in there too, fighting the good fight. What does it mean????

Never underestimate the Power of the Tassle.

Don the uniform, pick up your weapons, and become a Storm Trooper. On Friday night (Burn night! 10 PM!) in a never before seen event, as The Alien Siege Machine prepares to annihilate the masses, Storm Troopers will defend the City against the invasion. YOU can become part of that army! You will be a participant in a ground battle. You will be equipped and WILL BE ARMED WITH PYRO TECHNIC DEVICES! This level is risky and NOT for everyone. Your advance will result in return live-fire.
THE DANGER WILL BE REAL!

On a serious note...I would like to get my hands on two old telescopes, sort of working. I am thinking anything from those crummy Meade telescopes that many of us had as kids to something like a spotting scope, to mount up high on TASM. Sort of working to working. I could probably cobble together eye pieces, but main lens and mirrors should be present. The idea is to give folks up high or high folks up a chance to look out onto our fair city from the crows nest gun, and the gun ports in the body (40' and 30' off of the playa, respectively). I have seen a few on ebay in the $15 - 30 range, but I thought I would first see if someone had one junking around in the garage. You can PM me or fox.dan@gmail.com or 510-612-0664 text
Thank you!
Now, back to the shenanigans!

I can think of no more fitting way of celebrating the life and work of artist H. R. Giger than by building a 55 foot alien siege machine.

Agreed. I decided to make the head more rounded and less Trojan Horsey-Anubisey (I am in a rut) last week. The idea was to really go for the Alien look. Now even more so. Honestly, this bums me out, and I am sorry he died. It is a little self-serving, but I had this fantasy he would contact me and either said he loved it, or hated it. Either would have been fantastic!
