Update #4

Stereo Imagery Generated During BPL-004

1 comment

Once again we thank our new backers for their support, and in some cases, repeated support. Our Calculation Department is working on the "Easy Touch" metrics so that we may continue to exploit your inability to say 'no' to aerospace products. We enclose here some of the stereo photographs from our latest Outsourcing Meals. The images include a "Perch", which is the fish that doesn't look like a perch, but was called that by a student's phone translator. Also there are a pair of fantastically colored dollops covered with sugar sprinkles, which are, of course, mashed potatoes. There is a general fancy dinner view, which we must admit BPL did not pay for; it was a gracious gift of our host. That doesn't mean its not photogenic though. Also there is an image of a giant earthenware vessel. Inside this thing is a coal brick fire with maybe a couple of hundred little pots stacked on top of each other. Inside each of the pots is one of 50 different kinds of soup. The guy tending the vessel knows the contents of all the pots, which are externally pretty much the same. The vessel is in the #5 student cafeteria. We had 1 Pig Knuckle and 1 Chicken Knee and Toe and Beak.
If you have one of our Stereogram Viewers and an iphone, you can download the picture to the phone and view it in 3D directly in the viewer. We would like some assistance in this experiment to see if the images are easily downloadable from sources such as this one. BPL asks owners of the viewer and an iphone to give it a try and report back here in the 'Comment' section as to the performance of the system. We will send you an extra gift for helping us out- and if you have a Stereogram Viewer, you already know what you can expect from the company that Does Less With More. If you want to see the viewers themselves, have a look at .
Thanks, again- We will post more images of outsourced products very soon!

    Chow My Fun - Mission Report. Of course a complete report on the mission will be produced at its conclusion. BPL mission reports are a vital record of company activity and the backbone of our output since they are so cheap to print out. Each one is a work of art, composed, designed, bound, stamped and otherwise mutilated by hand in the bureaucratic labyrinth at BPL. The mission report from BPL - 002 can be seen here:

    Moo Goo Gai Pan - Mission Patch. A yet to be designed emblem signifying important mission elements and commemorating the event. Currently we are playing with the image of a chinese food container from which a chicken mcnugget looking thing in the shape of china is being removed held by one chopstick and one paintbrush from a pool of liquid in the shape of the United States.

    Peking Duck - Commemorative Chinese China. A thrift-store chinese china plate sandblasted with Mission information and graphics. Rendered fairly useless or at least unsanitary by the means of technical intervention, this item is contrasted with BPL's highly functional (and popular) Recycled Coffee Mugs (see for examples).

    Double Happiness - This mission will generate stereo imagery, just as our BPL-003 Moranic Mission To Montana has. We will be preparing 3D stereo pairs depicting Chinese Food consumed during the mission. You will get our custom viewer (sculpted, molded, cast and calibrated by BPL's co-Optics expert) and a set of 5 stereogram cards. This viewer even works with your iPhone! If you already own a viewer and an iPhone and would like to see the food during the mission, we can send you the images in an email- just let us know! Pictures of the viewers and stereo cards can be seen at:

    General Tso's Chicken - One Meal, one painting. The BPL CEO and Head Machinist will make a painting of a meal consumed by himself and a group of Chinese students during his stay in China. The gouache rendering will be annotated with data such as topics of conversation, time and date, temperature, hairstyles, actual cost of meal, etc. Executed on paper, the size will be somewhere between 4 x 5 and 8 x 12 inches, and may include spatters of actual food. For external use only. Some examples of paintings from BPL-002 can be seen here: . *Note- if you are wondering why these paintings are cheaper than the similarly sized paintings in our other kickstarter project, the explanation is that these paintings are made in China, with outsourced labor!

    Happy Family - If the touristic paintings such as those executed in BPL's original Experimental Outsourcing Mission hold more appeal, our Outsourced employee will be generating more when he's not eating! These gouache paintings will be festooned with the typical notation found in any plein air jotting worth it's salt, plus official BPL stampings in English and Mandarin.

    Dragon and Phoenix - Two Meals, two paintings. Same as above, for two, and cheaper. If you need to create a banquet of your own and you think you need more than two of these things, get in touch with me at BPL generally discourages concentration- of its products or any other kind.
