Sigmund

The theme from Sigmund and the Sea Monsters has been running through my head all day...I don't know why.

I'm going to be a professor in a few years and I realize I don't know thing one about building a radio out of coconut shells. What the hell kind of professor was the Professor on Gilligan's Island?

Going to the farm to play with beads.

Re:
Where do you get that degree, the one in everything? I guess loosely he was a scientist, but what kind, eh?

This is completely off topic, but some of the professors that stick in my mind the most are my chemistry teachers. My college prof in chemistry sounded just like Jimmy Stewart.

Re:
My communications professors are the ones I remember best because we were all more friends than student/teacher.

Re:
Well, I was an English tutor, so I hung out in the department and had inappropriate crushes on most of the English professors... yes, they stick in my mind. I guess it is the pacing back and forth reciting poetry or reading literature. At sixteen and seventeen I must have been a terrifying little precocious bag of hormone jailbait.

On my second round of college, I was too busy with nursing school to schmooze much. I had time to have a crush on my A&P instructor, but there goes that Electra Complex rearing its ugly head again and I'd rather not go there (G)

There's something about that absent-minded scientist, though. I'm sure they'd be a PIA to live with.

Re:
The unkempt former hippie female profs were the ones who always did it for me. I had one, Dr. Danielson who taught photography and coaxed me to do a nude study which she then hung in the student gallery. Mmmmmm, did I have a crush on her or what?

Re:
It was fun, I'll say that and more than a little controversial. Even though it was a liberal arts college, there were still enough Bible thumpers around town that people tried not to be overt about certain things. And I got pretty creative with the nudes. too. There was this girl who nude modeled for all the art classes and I was going to hire her to be my model. But she had a reputation for sleeping with all the artisists she modeled for. My wife found out about that and said no way that she'd rather model for me have this other girl do it. So that's how it worked out. We did some studio stuff but also a lot of outdoor poses as well. We picked the best 20 and hung them in the gallery. Like I say, the nudity was controversial enough. and since I did a lot of non-traditional posing, that was under fire as well. To top it all off, my wife was the president of Student Activities for the campus so everyone knew her and now everyone went to see her nude. So dr. Danielson and I both took quite a bit of heat over it.

Your wife was a brave gal!

Well, sometimes the establishment needs their robes blown up so they can air stuff out and examine things that have gotten stunted from hiding in the dark. They may not appreciate it, but it's necessary time to time.

o/~ Who ever heard of a friendly sea monster lovin' and laughin' his life away?
The other monsters put you down 'cause you're not mean, and now we've found a friend in Sigmund. He's a friend of mine!

Hollywood little person Billy Barty as an ambulatory head of cabbage. Full-body puppets/costumes have rarely been more fun! Too bad this was all before my time. I was born in the wrong era, I tell ya!

Between that and Land of the Lost....man, all the puppetry you'd ever need. Those shows were way before their time!

Building a radio out of coconut shells is relatively easy. The difficult part is finding the transistors and related circuitry. Especially on a deserted island. They don't just have Radio Shacks, ya know?
