Possible Villains for The New Bremen Town Musicians

 I'm playing with the idea of getting the band back together, as if they ever were, and was thinking of possible villains they might confront.

Here's some ideas...

Shakira: The Witch In The White Tower!

 Since  I've remembered this blog I may as well use it for it's intended purpose: shameless self promotion. 

 So, one of the reasons I haven't posted is because I was writing a book.  It's gotten some nice reviews, surprisingly!  And you can get it on Amazon Books, Barnes & Noble, and wherever books are sold.

Here's a picture of author J.R.R.R. Hardison with his copy.  He gave it a five star rating and wrote this splendid review: Reminiscent of the Narnia books by C.S. Lewis, this was an imaginative, engaging fantasy story with a spiritual angle. Bending the powers of nature and magic to her dark will, Shakira--the witch in the white tower--intends to reshape the world to her own specifications. But a prophecy foretells her downfall at the hands of a girl--a niece she never knew she had. Complicating matters, there are not one, but two nieces to be dealt with. Now, teenage twin sisters, Jena and Kat, find their lives turned upside down as they are swept up in their twisted aunt's evil machinations. Full of dark enchantments, exciting battles, intrepid talking animals, rotting zombies, and mysterious spirits, this is an entertaining read. Tons of fun.

Pretty nice huh!  If you can't read the cover very well, here's the cover down below

The rotating mirrors of Shakiras Nekromanteum is fiction but the resonate frequencies amplified to reconstruct matter is based on a real phenomenon called Cymatics. Sound shaping water and metal filings has been demonstrated and documented on film and video. This idea has been suggested as a possible means of moving the giant blocks of Florida’s Coral Castle, or perhaps the Egyptian pyramids. 
DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, has a technology known as Voice to Skull allowing voices to be sent and received by unsuspecting persons. They clearly hear unseen spoken messages in their heads much like Shakiras brain altering frequencies. 
Hydroponic gardens are producing food without using soil much like Shakira in her hope of gaining control over the planets food production.
These ideas and more are explored in the tower of Shakira: The Witch in the White Tower.

Hoggle from the Labyrinth

 Well, it's been a long time since I've posted anything.  I forgot all about this blog.  So, here's a 4" Xmas ornament sculptured in Sculpey and painted in oils of Hoggle the goblin from Jim Henson's movie "The Labyrinth".  There are a zillion, (yes, one zillion, I counted), pipes, keys and pouches on his utility belt.  I crossed his arms to cover many of them so I didn't have to sculpt them, but I noticed he has a severed hand instead of a rabbits foot, and it is making the devil horns sign.  What was Jim telling us?  His vest has a face on the back too, and I suppose it symbolizes that he is two-faced.  He does betray the girl Shara a few times.  Anyway, this is for my daughter Jenah.  She has an obsession with the Goblin King...
