FOR THE ROWERS KEEP ON ROWING

.

MEL STUART, DIRECTOR OF ‘WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY’ PASSED AWAY LAST NIGHT AT AGE 83, OF CANCER. SINCE MY MAGE BLOG PIC IS A DIRECT REFERENCE TO THIS LEGENDARY MOVIE, I FEEL COMPELLED TO DEDICATE THIS POST TO MEL’S LEGENDARY WORK. YOU KNOW YOU WERE FREAKED OUT AS KID BY THE INFAMOUS PSYCHEDELIC BOAT SCENE…TIME TO RELIVE YOUR YOUTH (UNLESS YOU WERE BORN IN THE 90′S AND YOU HAVE NO CLUE WHO GENE WILDER IS).

Round the world and home again
That’s the sailor’s way
Faster faster, faster faster

There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There’s no knowing where we’re rowing
Or which way the river’s flowing

Is it raining, is it snowing
Is a hurricane a-blowing

Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Are the fires of Hell a-glowing
Is the grisly reaper mowing

Yes, the danger must be growing
For the rowers keep on rowing
And they’re certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing

Movement is Everything

.

I came across these amazing little vacuum motors by Boehm Stirling the other day and was mesmerized by the craftsmanship and impressive functionality. The principle behind the Stirling motor dates back 2000 years to the ancient Egypt, and is quite simple. A burner filled with fuel heats the air inside a cylinder and thereby purveys energy to the motor that activates through piecing of the flywheels. Check out all their desk size engines here.
