Just An Intro

Postby Rotten on Tue Aug 12, 2014 10:40 pm

Hello folks.

Pardon the smell, its the unfortunate byproduct in the profession of death, gore, and all things that go bump in the night. My name is Rotten or Rot, whichever is prefered, and I’ve been practicing magic and theater for 13 years. I’m quite crafty and have four years of fine cabinetry experience and also enjoy long walks on the beach. No but realistically being landlocked makes the later quite difficult. I work as a stage and lighting technician for an amusement park and during the night build haunted houses. I’m glad to have found this forum, after spending time lurking I’m certain this community is more my speed.

Be well!

Rot

Hi Rot, I'm Currently building a 3D Router, and carving duplicator to reproduce guitar bodies and sniper rifle stocks. I'm sure we will have lots to talk about. I look forward to picking your brain, and I can be gentle, if that's your taste. Have a brownie, and relax. Egregor

Welcome Rotten, forgive the late felicitations.

Backwards you are Net Tor, which sounds Barsoomian.
It is possible I the only one here that liked John Carter--

I MET John Carter. True story. I will explain my logic.

I used to do concrete work. Coming back from a construction convention in Vegas, my father introduced my to a contractor from our hometown.
John Carter.
I asked him how Mars was, and he laughed. I had to explain to my dad about John Carter of Mars and Edger Rice Burroughs (He knew Tarzan but not Carter)
The John Carter on the plane with us told me he grew up a block or two down from Edgar Rice Burroughs and they used to play baseball right in front of his house.
I told the story of how Burroughs got Tarzan's name from passing the Tarzana city limits sign everyday.
It's entirely possible that Burroughs knew the neighborhood kids names and picked John Carters name from the kid who used to play baseball in front of his house.
We have no idea if it's true, but it pleased the John Carter I met with the possibility.

How I met Dejah Thoris is an entirely different story. I would have to make that one up.
It would probably involve trying to huff a nitreous balloon to get stoned at a Grateful Dead concert, and then finding out they had sold me a lighter than air balloon.
After all, if you're on Helium, you might meet Dejah Thoris. :roll:

There is also a children's entertainer/songwriter named John Carter. One of his albums is "Boo-Ha-Ha."

Welcome, Rot! I am not around these parts very much anymore (long story), but I bid you welcome anyway. Don't take brownies from strangers.

This is a long over due response sorry about that. I used to work for 13th Floor haunted attractions but have since moved on to theme park special events. Just finished building an insane asylum for Seaworld Parks and Entertainment as well as finished wrapping christmas lights...while Howl-O-Scream was still going on haha.
