Archive for the ‘What’s He Building In There?’ Category


Oh Lordy Lord Lord, have I died and gone to heaven?  This person lives in our very own Toxic State and my heart is bursting with pride.

Here are a few of his posts.  Every night when I lay my head and say my prayers, I respectfully request that another post from this gentleman make its way into my inbox.

We’ve just appointed him mayor of our “What’s He Building In There?” category. You can just call him the Real Old Model.

Since summer is almost upon us, Freakcycle’s doing some spring cleaning before we throw on the swimsuits and doggy-paddle with the jellyfish.

We have loads of submissions and are constantly weeding through them and trying to find a place for them on the blog.  We thank all of you who have submitted posts and assure you that we read every single one and squirrel them away like the hoarders that we are, all the while hoping to use them for future posts.

Since we have a heat wave upon us, we thought we’d feature a post that would make you feel as though you were standing on a frozen tundra eating a popsicle. This was sent in last year by Bernadette via the SUBMISSIONS page. Although the post itself features a freezer, you must view the link below to get the full cooling effect.

So much of this post intrigues us. First, I love that they call it a freeze machine. It sounds like a villain’s secret torture chamber for a caped crusader…or maybe that is my comic book geekiness coming through. When I first read the post I thought it read that they ruined the freezer with a pick axe…but maybe that was my dyslexia coming through. I’m an incurable dork really…and I’m positive that that’s coming through loud and clear right about now.

If you don’t believe that, then try this one on ice, courtesy of Herr Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRH-Ywpz1_I

Thanks for submitting, Bernadette!


I have a Kenmore freeze Machine working in good condition…

Freakcycle as you already know, embraces the strange.  Heck, we’d even venture to say that we’d like to hold it in a death grip if we could.  People who say strange things, like in this next post are our very favorite.  We like it when the motive for strangeness is obscured or enveloped in a haze of non-sensical jibber-jabber.  Take that last sentence, for example…HUH?  Exactly our point.

We introduce another category for our bizarre bazaar—“What’s He Building In There?”.  This will be the repository for all those Freecycle posts that hint at the possibility of a mad scientist, carpenter, or some other crafty freak at work.  People asking for glycerin by-products, old hen houses, and yes, sometimes even a hammer.  That hammer post was what gave us the idea for the new category. That and of course, one of our favorite oddballs, Tom Waits.

WANTED: 4 egg, egg poacher.

I’m exploring soapmaking with the excess glycerin from biodiesel production. I’d prefer some with the methanol removed already.

I anticipate making laundry and dish soap, engine cleaner, and the like – probably not suitable for skin.

Will share the fruits of my labor when I achieve success!
