21  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dreadlocks on: July 24, 2007 01:51:44 AM
If it were me-

i would wait until the new dreads are kind of coherent, depending on your hair anywhere 1-4 months, then you can just sew them on.  Sewing dreads is kind of a sloppier-is-better thing - just be sure to sew through lots of different parts of the old ones and tie it off a couple of times around both.  if you want to get fancy you can cut the ends of the old dreads in a sort of taper and overlap it with the new ones.

They also shrink slowly over time - mine at first shrank 1/3 of the length of the hair, then over the next year shrank another third.  they were growing the whole time, though, so the net length change was very minimal.

i like the tiny dots of yellow at each of the exterior corners - not very noticeable but i think they really help the whole thing to pop.
24  California / California: North / San Francisco, CA: Pandora's Trunk, June 30th on: June 28, 2007 02:11:22 AM
Pigs have flown, hell has frozen over, and we are living in the other side of tomorrow.  We are the chosen few, though, the bleeding edge of culture mutation as America's future pulls itself forward on the ones and zeros of the information age.  This true binary runs our lives now, cold and hard within the veins of our machines.  Embracing the bracing comfort of logic's implacability opens up the rich humor in drawing arbitrary black and white distinctions across real life's great shades of grey.  Come out this weekend and celebrate the passage of a simplistic dualist worldview... through mockery.

Pandora's Trunk
Bi-monthly arts & fashion showcase

Saturday June 30 2-7pm
Free admission - live music - free drinks
Mina Dresden Gallery
312 Valencia @ 14th

Pandora's Trunk Presents Versus
Take part in the eternal dualist battle between good and evil!

The audience will be the players in an all-encompassing game exploding the notion of the dark and light sides of life.  We will all join together in playful and earnest celebration of life beyond a black-and-white worldview, playing with and against each other in a tipsy and joyful rendition of humanity's battle with itself.  Artists from all parts of the spectrum will present to you their work in paint, fabric, metal, wood, string, spit, and bubblegum.  Pick sides and put 'em up - talk the artists into selling you their work and go home with a pocket-sized unique souvenir of one little drunken corner of a revolution.  Each transaction will grant you a pass to win or lose in the name of whichever side you are on.  Don't worry - drinks and merriment are for winners and losers alike.

The art and fashion offerings will come in good and evil and all sizes, shapes and colors.  Look out for ties, scarves, cowboy shirts, and jackets for boys and girls from Medium Reality.  Miranda Caroligne will of course be there telling you snips and secrets from her upcoming Reconstruction Clothing for Dummies manual. Bad Unkl Sista, Fatima, Dida, Rose Pistola, Cotton Candie Stockings, Eion 2013 and more more more rounding out the fashion plate with clothing and accessories for your most delirious opium dream.

Ten painters will be hung in the gallery, exploding in color and form across the walls.  Five more painters will bring you small works that will easily fit in your pocket (and your wallet) that day.  Metallurge Casting is coming to showcase astounding and functional art-metal castings that you may have seen at Maker Faire.  We are welcoming back sitar player John Arns, and of course handmade gourmet chocolates from Edible Love for your eating pleasure!  Visit our website for a frequently updated roster of artists with pictures and links!  Contact us to get involved.

one of the best parts of shaving your head as close as you have is that every day, as it grows, it will feel slightly different to the touch.
