Even though our work is not complete, we can make do... and we kind of HAVE to make do, because we leave New York tomorrow for Baltimore, MD where we are playing the WHARTSCAPE festival... our first gig of our summer tour. BALLOSROY performs on Thursday at the historic Charles movie theater.. we will probably "hit" sometime around 5:30, we are guessing.
Today was not as productive as we hoped (waste fuel and fundraising alike)... we started filtering later in the day and realized our filter sock is clogged. not a big deal though, we'll rip the leg off an old pair of jeans, tie a knot in it and that is what makes the perfect gravity filter for Waste Vegetable Oil. i've heard the micron rating on good denim jeans is around 5 microns... which is pretty good, though I have never done any kind of scientific experimentation to prove this.... but i am sure denim jeans beats a jersey t-shirt any day of the week.
heres the video from today... we wanted to put it on kickstarter but it was just too big... 100 MB limit here.
If you haven't, please join the backer ranks and spread the word.
We've added a new reward... its a handmade pamphlet on resonance as it relates to energy and the states of matter, and it unifies the work of Edward Leedskalnin, John Hutchinson, and Nikola Tesla.
Believe on it.
