Open Thread: Orange Lamp

While tradition calls for lamps such as this to be made from tangerines, the way that the orange peels were coming off made me think it might be possible to do it with an orange.  It was.  You're looking at the result.

The lamp was made with an orange peel and canola oil, the principal tools used being a pizza cutter (when it turned out my thumbnail wasn't long enough) and a lighter.  A knife was also used give the hole at the top a more uniform shape and appearance than came naturally.

Picture taken last night in my kitchen.


We have special open threads set aside for discussing various movies, said discussions including plain text spoilers.  These are the current ones:
   ● Birds of Prey
   ● Star Wars: Episode IX -- The Rise of Skywalker

You do not need a special open thread to discuss a movie.  Provided you encipher any spoilers (the standard method is by summoning Cthulhu) discussion of movies is quite welcome in the regular open threads.

The special threads are for cases where movie-talk might threaten to drown out other discussion, is expected to take place over multiple weeks, or both.  If you believe a given movie calls for one, simply say so.


Friday Recommendations!  What have you been reading/writing/listening to/playing/watching lately?  Shamelessly self-promote or boost the signal on something you think we should know about - the weekend’s ahead of us, so give us something new to explore!

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
