I'm saddened but not surprised: the Tee & Charles Addams Foundation flagged Adult Wednesday Addams and the show is gone. http://t.co/La7NrujwII . 
“"Adult Wednesday Addams" is in YouTube purgatory. I'm working on resolving it. Update here: http://t.co/r367Aexr8w”

+Mick Chaenic I may be mis-reading this, but it strikes me that this is mostly MGM due to their upcoming animated Addams Family film - as there's a contract between MGM and T&CAF, the latter is bound to stomp on any other uses of the Addams characters.

In one letter a website published that is purported to be a response to a fan inquiry, they put the blame on Melissa for not getting a license - but who's to say they'd ever have granted her one, or perhaps they'd have revoked it when MGM came calling with the big money?

I think this is just a lesson that creative people have to be aware that not every studio is as forward-looking as CBS/Paramount is in regard to the Star Trek  fan film scene. In that case, the studio simply said (in essence) "Don't make money and don't have beloved characters doing disgusting things" and otherwise pretty much let them go... but that's a forbearance from that specific studio (and one could argue in the specific case of a powerful and vocal fan base that could make their lives miserable).

Obviously IANAL, but I've seen an argument that because Adult Wednesday Addams  is a logical extrapolation of the original - kids of all sorts grow up and move out on their own - it doesn't qualify as a parody under that exception. It's more of a "spin-off", in a sense.

It's another Pegboard 3D printing project.  Take an old clothespin and reuse its spring to create a clip to hang things from a pegboard.  I've made the design downloadable: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:762340

I cannot imagine living without greenhouses.  In the late winter and early spring they are inspirational.

It's the first normal rainy Oregon spring day in a long time.  My activities move back indoors.  I spent some time in the greenhouses today focusing on some carnivores.

For some reason, I have the song "Mean Green Mother From Outer Space" going through my head now....

the Screening Party for Adult Wednesday Addams (http://youtu.be/2QQ-lpeC_hE) from Wednesday evening. 

I'm listed as an Execuive Producer because I contributed money to produce Season 2 of the series.  So why did I do this? 

Every year for the past twenty, I've given money to some artist that has produced something that moved me.  The money is a no strings grant.

Last year, I was in in mourning over the loss of a family member and an episode of Adult Wednesday Addams prompted me to laugh when I needed to laugh.  Through the Web site indiegogo.com, I donated money for the creation of Season 2.  I'm proud that my contribution enabled this group of creative young artists to do their production.

Plastic netting deer fence is very effective, but it's hard to make a gate.

These clips attach to the T-bar with zip ties. The fencing is then stretched and snagged by one of the three hooks. Individually, the hooks are not particularly strong, but with eight or ten of them, they are of sufficient strength to hold the fencing tight and resist a deer trying to push through.

When somebody with thumbs wants to get through, it's easy to grab onto the netting, pulling it away from the hooks. It opens like a zipper allowing easy entry or exit from the protected space.
I've held off posting this design for a year, because I wanted to see how the PLA hooks would withstand the weather. They lasted for a full year, but they wouldn't last much longer. Since our deer fencing is really a temporary fence, we move it every couple years to protect different spaces, I don't mind replacing them on a yearly basis.

This design is available for download: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:763707

We came out of the closet the same evening and directly into each other's arms.  It was 1985 in Missoula, Montana.  That night that we met, I had no idea that I was about to join his family.  I became a third parent to his children, Emily and Alex.  We all ended up living together in a jointly owned house as one loving family: mom, dad, son, daughter and adopted extra dad.

One year ago today, nearly twenty-nine years to the day that we met, we reconvened as a family to see him off.  Richard drew his last weak breath with all of us encircled around him.  It was not an easy death, but I sincerely hope that our presence was comforting to him in some way.

Richard, I will love you forever.  I miss you so profoundly that it is a pain deep within my chest.  A piece of all of us died with you that evening, but with every day that goes by, I'm reminded of how you enriched  my life. Most importantly, a little piece of you lives on within each of us.
