Chuck's in Iceland ATM. Rest assured, I've been giving him guilt trips about unfinished dye jobs. He in turn, continues to assure me that he'll get them done. For those that are getting impatient, I have his email address, phone number, AND home address for the right "incentive." I'm a loyal friend, but as "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase pointed out "every man has his price." ;)

Is he living off the grid, making money dyeing discs and growing his epic beard even epic-er? You have any work in progress pictures of the discs he's started?

I'm not back. I couldn't be further away, in fact. I just wanted Dave to know that a little piece of me died last night when I saw that wraith on eBay.

Later DGR, you guys rocked.

I didn't ebay it! I had to sell off some plastic and the guy who bought the lot of discs did.

Dave, I know you didn't eBay the disc. Look, it really doesn't matter. That wraith was yours to do what you liked with it. It was not the gift, the dye process combined with the initial opening of the USPS envelope was. Anything after that and it's a blurry oblivion. I'm not mad, Dave. I just overreact sometimes :oops: and I'm sorry I posted all angry and such. You and I both received our enjoyment from that dye, and now it really is just a wraith.

This is what most people don't understand about dyed discs. The tatted plastic is not the art, if there is even any to be had. The art of a dyed disc is the fleeting moment of completion, when it looks as fantastic as it ever will. If the owner of the disc gets to see the dye before too long, then the look on their face upon first viewing is a bonus bit of art. I feel almost selfish at times, knowing that I'm the only person who ever truly benefits from the process.

Disc dyeing does not produce any sort of lasting artistic value. It fades into effectively nothing just as fast as a sculpture by Andy Goldsworthy might. You can take a picture of the fresh dye but photographs are like cheap reprints, the best you can get if you weren't there for the real deal.

So to anyone who takes part in this fabulous hobby, remember to make each and every dye as extraordinary as possible, because if you're just churning out crap that has no personal significance to either party then you're wasting your time, not to mention removing one more good canvas from my selection pool!
