Some fancy places turn old Bardwell and McCallister Keg lights into very expensive light fixtures.

An Elwood was used as porch lampost. I see them posted as lamps.

I have my 5X7 Elwood on wheels.

I just push Jake around...

Is that located in the View Camera Dept of Walmart, right across the aisle from the expired Pringles?

More DRECKORATION for the masses...

Looks like it should be on Captain Nemo's submarine, or in a tourist trap lobster house...

Pringles never expire and are hermetically sealed for the next earth residents.

Saw an enlarger a while back on Ebay that someone had turned into a table lamp.

I have no idea why it keeps rotating those photos though. Sorry.

It's the heat source for baking Pringles.

All Pringles are exactly the same. That's because they isolated potato chip DNA and cloned science's idea of the perfect potato chip.

From genetically engineered identical cloned potatoes.

Odd. I would have guessed mass-produced styrofoam.

Pringles are digital potato chips...

They use CNC machines to size them all the same. Nice way to recycle scraps of fomecore board.

I thought they were all 3D printed...

I figured out that their bent shape was simply due to the long-term effects of gravity. Most of the Pringles cans sold at WalMart have expiration dates in cuneiform, so it's hard to exactly date them, except that it was at least four thousand years prior to the invention of 3d printers. Reminds me of the meat
counter at Safeway.

I love this set I really do. It's great for people just starting out. It's a simple setup and the instructions come in handy if you get stumped. The only downfall to this set is that the light cords are extremely short, so you can't arrange them how you want because they have to pretty much be right next to an outlet unless you have extension cords. I also dislike the back drops. They are a cheap material, and I wish it was wider to fit the background frame. If you turn the backdrop horizontal it fits but then you have an issue with its length not touching the floor.

These 10" Spot/Fresnel Strand Castors, made in Italy, can be had on eBay for $10 plus shipping. They are set up for a 2K halogen bulb in a G38 socket. The lowest wattage bulb available in G38 style is 750W. I have converted some to Edison screw ceramic socket which is good for 500W or less. Conversion with a removable Dynalite Road electronic flash head is quite practical and can provide up to 2400WS of flash and 650W of fan-cooled halogen. These weigh about 30 lbs. and require a substantial Junior receiver equipped light stand, like the Flash Point at B&H for $175 with wheels. For decor purposes, a speaker stand works well.

There was an issue with Pringles in Canada, IIRC, because they don't contain enough potato to be called a potato chip.
