What is that box!? A perverted first aid kit? An alien abduction antennae? That thing is so cool. Does that yellow dial on the right control the volume? Have you installed old auto reverse walkmen inside to play the sounds ? Or are you using answering machine cassettes? Enough with the questions. I wanna pick the thing up and play with it like a Joseph Cornell box was meant to be played with.

it's actually an altered 'bewitched' TV show lunchbox purse!!!! it broke my heart to alter it, but actually, i like this one better..

and i'm using regular cassette tape players inside, with loop tapes (meant for answering machines..YES!!) and comparing ME to JOSEPH CORNELL??? thump thump..thump thump. i think my heart is gonna burst right out of my chest!!! THANK YOU!!! i might just have to 'play' around with the next cornell i see..and just see what happens. better start adding to the bail jar..

Have you considered adding one of these to your purse/boxes?

It's a volume potentiometer aka a "pot". All you have to do is drill the appropriately sized hole, screw it in, and Solder your two wires so that one connects to the middle lug and the other to one of the outside lugs. (Which outside lug you choose determines whether you turn the dial clockwise or counterclockwise to change the volume.) Then you connect the two wires from the pot to either the negative or positive wire of your output speaker. Try the experiment with the wire leading to your stereo speaker. Does any of that make sense?

Re: Helllooo Radio Shack
heh heh..
you said 'pot.'
heh heh.

seriously, though...i've already been technically collaborating with my boyfriend for any future audio works. i'm trying to figure out a way to use MP3 players (instead of tape players) i think the quality of sound might be crisper and not degrade like a tape.

perhaps the most glorious transformation of a lunchbox that I have seen in my short but sweet eighteen years.
Sep. 1st, 2005 09:51 pm (UTC)
you are too kind!!!!!!

do you recognize this classy chick?

i think the most appropriate part of this purse is the fact that it's the only one that has that distinctively 'vintage' smell. it's kind of got that 'grandma's slightly musty house' sorta scent..which is actually kinda neat, considering you told me the whole history of the photo being taken...with you grabbing a moment of peace by separating from your grandma in the mall.

i wound up using the 'bang, you're dead' photos for your 2nd purse..

you're a STAHHHH baby.

i'll send you pix of the 2nd purse SOOOOOOOON.
