TSA Detained Chewbacca Because They Thought His Light Saber Cane was Dangerous

peter-mayhew-twitter-lightsaber-cane

As Peter Mayhew put it, the guy who made Chewbacca all that he is in its hairy presence, “Giant man need giant cane.. small cane snap like toothpick…. besides.. my light saber cane is just cool.. I would miss it.

Star Wars actor Peter Mayhew was detained at Denver International Airport on June 3 because TSA thought his light saber cane was dangerous.  So, his oversized acrylic light saber cane was dangerous.  You guys at the TSA do know that light sabers don’t quite exist yet, right?  You have several of my 8″ crescent wrenches, and definitely a handful of Gerber tools you’ve taken from me over the years.  I still will never understand why you tell me I can have a 7″ crescent wrench but not an 8″ crescent wrench every single time you take one from me.  If I had a 7″ crescent would you tell me I could only have a 6″ crescent?

From an article at CNET:

Mayhew’s explanation for this cane possession was very simple: “Giant man need giant cane.. small cane snap like toothpick…. besides.. my light saber cane is just cool.. I would miss it.”

Who could possibly argue with that? Well, the TSA folks wanted to.

However, quite extraordinarily, American Airlines intervened. Mayhew is an extremely frequent flyer and it seems that someone from the airline may have whispered to the TSA: “Do you really think a famous actor is going to hijack a plane with a lightsaber cane?”

Or words with that same ultimate meaning.

This was not before some of Mayhew’s Twitter followers made merry with this terrestrial nonsense.

One, Shane Moore, offered: “@TheWookieeRoars Chewie hijacks plane with light saber… takes passengers to Kashyyyk. Story tonight at 10!”

Mr. Mayhew, who goes by TheWookieeRoars on Twitter, took to Twitter to let the world know what was up.  Chewbacca was just flying home from the Denver Comi-con, and TSA decided to snag his cane because it “looked dangerous.”  After a little bit, some magic happened — TSA released a statement because Mayhew sent out a tweet to 20,000+ followers.  As you’ll notice in the picture above, it took three TSA agents to detain Mr. Mayhew, and I’m sure an entire communications department to decide what they should do that someone called them out on being ridiculous.  Oh, I love paying tax money for these people.  I have no job, and they have eleventy jobs.

Ah, bureaucracy.

Here’s a better shot of that awesome cane:

Last Week’s News Catch-up – Wybron Closing, Live Nation Sued, Trees That Glow, and More!

It’s been a busy weekend, and now that Monday rears its ugly head, it’s time to get back to work.  For some of us, it means looking for work, and others it means working hard and keeping busy.  With the summer season coming up, I have to believe that the “keeping busy” part won’t be an issue.

Let’s catch up on last week — a lot happened last week that was of industry importance.

First — Wybron, Inc is closing its doors on June 28, 2013.  After 35 years in business and with tons of technological development for and in our beloved Lighting Industry, the maker of the Color Scroller (et al) says goodnight, and good luck.

wybron-closes

 

Then — Live Nation, Optex Staging, and Domenic Cugliari (an individual engineer that allegedly signed off on the Radiohead stage that collapsed and killed Scott Johnson, Radiohead’s drum tech) were sued by the Ontario Health and Safety Board.  This is a huge deal in the world right now, especially since summer gigs are kicking full steam ahead.  Are you safe in the workplace?

radiohead-stage-collapse

Next — a Kickstarter campaign by some extremely intelligent and driven individuals to manufacture the first man-made bioluminescent trees.  I highly recommend this as a respite from the news about disasters.

Then — are you an expert of light?  Think you know the difference between Luminance and Illuminance?  Then put your knowledge where your mouth is and take the JimOnLight LIGHT Quiz!

Stay tuned, world — more to come soon, and I wish you all a Happy Monday!

 

Wybron Closing Its Doors After 35 Years of Business

wybron-closes

Wybron, the company that invented the Color Scroller back in 1980, is closing its doors for the last time at the end of June 2013, according to a company email sent to its dealer network last night.  From the email, sent to JOL from a source not authorized to comment – bolding is mine:

Dear Dealers,

After a long and pleasant relationship with you, Wybron is ceasing business at the end of June. A press release will go out on Friday to the public announcing  the same.

The text of the press release follows:
Wybron Closes Doors After 35 Years of Innovation in Stage Lighting Industry

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – June 6, 2013 – Wybron, a leading stage lighting supplier announced today that the company will close its doors on June 30, 2013.

The company is best known for transforming entertainment, church and architectural industries with its innovation of cutting-edge lighting products.

For years, the stage lighting industry has been led by companies with three-letter names,” said President and CEO Keny Whitright.  “PRG, ETC, ELS, TMB, and BMI are just a few of these. For 35 years Wybron struggled through with the burden of a six-letter name,” Whitright said laughing, “We finally realized we have too many letters in the company name.  It was time to close the doors.

Whitright said that closing the Wybron manufacturing plant is bittersweet.  “I will miss the business that I know and love.  But, I am looking forward to scaling back and becoming an FTD man.  Fishing, Traveling and Driving my cars will fill most of my days,” said Whitright. “Notice that I am planning to carry the three letter theme into my retirement.”

Wybron will host an online garage sale starting June 14, 2013, in order to liquidate its remaining new and used products and spare parts.  It will offer amazing deals and extraordinary closeout pricing. Visit the Wybron website at www.wybron.com beginning June 14 to learn more about the garage sale offers.

Any pending orders are  being filled, but if you have registered a job past June, we will be unable to supply that gear.

Service on existing equipment is uncertain at this time. We are looking for a company to do service, but don’t have anything in place now.

Best Regards,

Keny Whitright
President, Wybron, Inc.

Keny, I’m sorry to see Wybron close.  Some of my most enjoyable work was designed the right way because of your product.  From a grateful industry, JimOnLight.com says thank you for all you’ve contributed to the Industry.  I hope that you fill out your days with the happiness that you deserve, and that your roads are always clear and sunny.

Free Energy Could Change The Lighting Industry – Overunity and Perpetual Motion Explained

Can you imagine a world where it cost nothing to have electricity?  Tesla did, and he died penniless and alone.  Why did the world allow that to happen?

manual-of-free-energy

Have you ever heard of Free Energy?  Have you ever even considered something as ever-present as power being free?  If we even had the concept of that word, we would never need to have the discussion about why tungsten and halogen must go, being replaced by LED and CFL.  It just wouldn’t matter.

It’s a concept that does not consider the profit margins of the Big Energy producers –  oil, coal, and natural gas, but it could completely change our world.  The idea of free energy could also completely change the stakes of the petro-dollar game we play every time we put on a show somewhere that has lighting – can you picture every device you put out there on a show having a locally placed free energy source that powers it instead of running multicables everywhere to provide electricity?  My imagination gives me pictures of little hard drive sized power generators that can be unloaded from a roadcase, added to a truss, and energized without the need for feeder cable, mults, long patch cables, and the like.  We are already as an industry getting behind the idea of wireless DMX and transmitting a DMX network across the airwaves.  Look up LumenRadio‘s work, it will blow your mind – and I mean really blow your mind.

Maybe more importantly…  can you imagine our world without the need to fight over energy?  Look at every war that has taken place over the last 100 years – every single one can been tied to fighting over resources, even if the tie that binds is hidden and disguised as policy.   Our world needs something to give, to break loose – and I think that free energy is the thing that can change our world.  What would the world do if there was no need for the hundreds of defense contractor companies that get worldwide money defending the one thing that we always see the need to blow people up over?  Can you imagine such a world where we could spend more money on something as comparatively mundane as Entertainment Lighting in order to give the world the kinds of mind-blowing productions that we could with the kinds of technologies used in warfare?

Obviously I’m just postulating.  But also postulating are the ideas behind free energy and devices that would potentially (get it?) be able to make some free energy.  I cannot let go of the thought of a color scroller sized power distribution unit that can power several fixtures, or dimmers, or anything that can save money on power by being free.  In my lifetime, I want to make this happen.

I love to spread ideas around our industry like free energy, because we work and live in a very creative industry absolutely full of people who can make stuff like this happen.  We are the industry that has invented wireless data, innovative power and signal distribution systems like the Series 400 stuff from PRG, we’ve improved the jacketing and conductive materials inside of our power distribution systems to work with the power that we get from the power companies, and we’ve invented devices to clean that power up and make it steady, stable, and usable for some of the sensitive equipment we use for our work.  I do worry that some of the people in our business are too centered around how much money that can be made from their technologies that they alienate the entire industry to a small knit group of providers that can afford the costs to harness such things like free energy.  Hopefully some of the more productive generators of free energy will put some free instructions and information out on the web for all of us to try, build, and improve upon for the good of all humans on Earth.

Readers, there are some terms that need to be researched on your part in order to understand some of the intricate details of terms like perpetual motion, zero-point energy, and overunity.  These aren’t difficult concepts and you don’t have to have a PhD in Physics and Electromagnetism to understand these terms.  Let’s start easy:

What is PERPETUAL MOTION, and how does it relate to our world of Light?

This, good people of Earth, is perpetual motion:

When talking about things that make electricity and energy, we have to look at what exactly happens to make energy.  It’s a simple thing – we use some form of simple fuel (like coal, gas, or oil) to turn a magnet inside of a closed-loop of copper wire, or a conductor.  As the magnet spins (albeit very fast), an electromagnetic field is produced from the spinning magnet’s kinetic energy into electricity.  Or, just as useful and still used today, some kind of closed loop of wire spinning between the poles of two magnets.  We can thank Mr. Faraday for this, but everyone has postulated on it in some form or another.

Perpetual motion is, on a whole, the idea of having some kind of electrical energy creation device that will spin on its own, requiring no energy to keep its spin and continuation of power generation.  Remember the Law of Conservation of Energy from high school?  It states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change from one form to another.  Because of this law of physics, called the 1st law of thermodynamics, the idea of a system of perpetual motion is completely irrelevant, or at least that is what science is debating right now, and has been for decades.  What we’re talking about here is being able to create energy – which goes against the principle of the Law of Conservation of Energy – and to create that energy without having any input to that creation cycle.  This means perpetual motion, or something moving forever on its own, is to generate electricity from the electromagnetic field from which it is derived without adding any energy to get energy.  If that isn’t clear enough, imagine your local power utility being able to use no coal, gas, or oil to make electricity but still being able to charge you whatever they want to use their power.

Let me say that one different way:  If you can figure out how to create a machine that creates energy without using any energy, you can power whatever you want, for free, forever.  Forever in petro-dollar terms is a long time, folks.  Can you imagine being able to live through the winter with all of the heat and electricity you want without the huge bills?  If the power companies patent this technology before its able to be utilized on a free, worldwide scale, we’ll at least have a lower or nonexistent use of oil, coal, and gas for power, but we’ll be paying them for pretty much nothing.  Also, we’ll be paying them forever.

Look at it another way, more directed towards the Entertainment Industry – can you imagine being able to power your show and have no bill?  The last show I designed had a combined wattage of 240,000W, which if we put to costs comes out somewhere in the neighborhood of 960kWh for 4 hours of power, or if you assume a commercial rate of $0.10 per kWh comes to about $100 bucks per 4 hours of the show, if it all were blasting at full at once, of course.  But if we take that 100 bucks a night and multiply by a week’s worth of shows, we’ve got $700 bucks for the week – and $2800 for the month.  See the costs adding up?

Now what if you could save that $2800 bucks for a month of electricity for shows and put it back into the production by having free sources of electricity?  This is why perpetual motion is important, and should be to you, especially if you’re in Light.  If we can solve the issues of a perpetually generating device, we could make them as large or as small as we need for any application.  In Entertainment, this would literally redefine our game.

What is OVERUNITY, and how does it relate to our world of Light?

Overunity is a very interesting concept that is often confused for being something that it is not:  Overunity is NOT a measurement of the efficiency of a system that generates power, it is simply the coefficient of performance (COP) that is derived from how much energy the person operating that specific generator.  The efficiency of a system like a power generator takes into consideration all of the energy put into that system to make it run, like electricity from the grid, environmental energy like wind or water.  A windmill, for example, doesn’t matter how efficient the system is, because there is plenty of energy to be transferred (you know, the wind?) to make the system run.  When we’re talking about overunity with respect to free power, we’re talking about the amount of energy needed to get it moving and keep it moving.

Efficiency is the ability for a system or something that makes power to do so based on the energy you put into it; the Coefficient of Performance is how effectively the energy used in the goal of what the system is doing, in this case, making electricity.  The Coefficient of Performance is how well the system uses the energy you put into it!  So if your system can be started up with no input from you, the COP is obviously greater than 1 – if you have a small battery of something of the sort that you use to energize the system, but the system then can lose the battery and run on its own, you have a device producing more energy you’re putting in, or overunity.  For example – with no conductors, no power sources, and no trickery, the person in this video below flings two magnets at each other while the magnetic fields around them propel them into a cyclic motion.  Watch this:

Is it a perfect explanation?  No, but without going into the depths of thermodynamics, it’ll have to do for now.  More on this subject later, I have a huge amount of interest in this topic – enough to make me want to redo some Calculus classes I should have paid a bit more attention in when I was younger…

A Grim Reminder of the Latest Deaths in Our Beloved Industry Before Summer Work Kicks Off

indiana-state-fair-collapse-falling

HEY!  YOU! 

You there, with the rigging bag.

You there, with the crescent wrench and fearless attitude.

You there, sporting the “supervisor” face but looking at your cell phone when motors are moving.

You there, new guy and new girl, who are googly-eyed at the awesomeness but should be watching their own backs and paying attention to the work.

The summer season of outdoor music and theatre has started, and no matter if you’re doing corporate shows, theatre, music, or art production, this post needs to serve as a reminder.  Along with orgs like PLASA and the Event Safety Alliance, JimOnLight.com is doing everything they can to NOT have a summer like the last few we’ve had – and what I can do is provide a reminder of the hell that we as an industry have seen, not to mention the families of those killed in these accidents and disasters lately.  If I might reiterate, what we do is entertainment; it may pay the bills, but if you see something less than safe happening or took place in putting something together that you might not feel 100% about once it was finished, SPEAK UP NOW!

YOUR DUTY:  It is your duty to the safety of others and your own personal safety to keep your head in the game once you are onsite.  This includes WEATHER concerns, Safety concerns,

To address an email I got from a guy out there who prefers to remain anonymous out there, who asked me what would happen if a person got fired for refusing to do something unsafe.  My response was something along the lines of:

  1. You are probably working for a company that is a time bomb of fail waiting to happen — don’t be the fuse, and don’t feel bad about not wanting to die at work.
  2. Regardless of Fact #1, you should probably consult an attorney before you go thermonuclear.  Most attorneys do so for free.
  3. Call people like OSHA, PLASA, USITT, anyone you can think of if something shady is going on.  So you lose your job – don’t for a second think that the industry won’t be behind you for saving lives.
  4. You can file unemployment in a case like that – a company doing shady safety work will sooner than later be discovered, it would not be in their interest to fight your claim.  But, your mileage may vary, and frankly, some people have better luck than others in life at these things.
  5. Feel good that you aren’t in that situation anymore, and get right back out there and find another gig if you lose yours.  Do the right thing.  Having deaths on your conscience is good for no human, no matter how little of a part you played in the process.

That’s my opinion, anyway.  That’s what I’d do.  An industry that won’t take care of people who keep it safe is not an industry anyone should participate in, regardless of the possible profits.  Money is less valuable than lives.

Here’s a reminder of sacrifices have been made to further the standardization of safety in our business – please forgive me if I overlooked one close to you, all you have to do is email me and I will append this post.

Just don’t forget.  Also, don’t forget that you are responsible for yourself out there, and when you’re putting equipment together, keep in mind that your diligence will mean the difference between you and others going home on the bus and going home in the ambulance – or even worse, getting a ride home with the coroner.

Be safe out there, Road Warriors!

Vanilla Ice (Rob Van Winkle) Becomes A Luminaire Designer — Stop, Collaborate, and Illuminate?

vanilla7n-2-web

I wouldn’t have believed it until I saw good ol’ Vanilla Ice (otherwise known to us Bloodhound Gang fans as Rob Van Winkle) standing next to the people at Capitol Lighting as they unveil his six piece inaugural chandelier and sconce line.  Many of you already know that Mr. Vanilla Ice is the host of a hit show on the DIY Network called The Vanilla Ice Project.  Apparently he’s designing lighting now.  From a post at Residential Lighting Magazine:

“I have always had a passion for home design, renovations and real estate,” says Rob Van Winkle, aka Vanilla Ice. “I’ve always envisioned creating my own line of home décor products, and after working with the Capitol Lighting team for several years it was a perfect fit to begin with lighting fixtures.”

Vanilla Ice and Capitol Lighting have worked together on partnerships including the “Making Lives Brighter” campaign where the rapper/designer was the spokesperson and filmed a PSA to bring awareness to Habitat for Humanity. Customers donated their old lighting fixtures to any Capitol Lighting showroom in South Florida and New Jersey to be repurposed in a Habitat home or sold at one of their Re-Stores.

“The Capitol Lighting family is honored to have such a wonderful relationship with Vanilla Ice and be able to showcase his lighting line exclusively in our showrooms,” says Eric Lebersfeld, President of Capitol Lighting. “He is a true part of the Capitol Lighting team and brings a special eye for home design.”

I had no idea.  However, I had to see this video:

The sconces run between $125 and $400, and the chandeliers in Vanilla Ice’s repertoire start around a grand and go to $1500 bucks.  Check them out:

Jim Hutchison Leaves CAST Software, Opens Lumen Buddha Studios – A Lighting Industries Think Tank and Design Studio

lumenbuddha

I have the most amazing news to share, and I’ve had to hold it in for the last month…  Fortunately this isn’t an April Fools’ joke!

After four years with my extended CAST Group family, I’m very excited to tell the world that I am leaving CAST Group as the Product Manager for the industry lighting design suite wysiwyg and the Events and Meetings industry design product Vivien Event Designer to open a lighting industries think tank, design studio, and industry relations consulting firm!  World, please welcome Lumen Buddha Studios to the world of light!  The timing is right, the industry is right, and all of my cards have come together to make this happen.  We’ll be moving back to Dallas, Texas soon to begin this adventure!

My goal with Lumen Buddha Studios is three-fold, and I am making three definite divisions in the company:

  1. INDUSTRY THINK TANK:
    Lumen Buddha Studios will provide a resource for lighting industries companies that allows them access to the wealth of knowledge and understanding of the Lighting Industries, including consulting services for a number of industry subsets — Social Media, Research and Development, historical Industry trends, and Industry Intelligence to name a few.
  2. LIGHTING INDUSTRIES MEDIA OUTREACH:
    Lumen Buddha Studios will provide the most excellent services for Lighting Industries businesses to reach out into the Social Media world — many companies struggle to get real results from their Social Media outreach, and Lumen Buddha Studios  strives to provide that edge that the Lighting Industries need to survive!
  3. LIGHTING DESIGN, CONTENT, AND PRODUCTION STUDIO:
    Lumen Buddha Studios
    brings two designers with three decades of experience creating stunning designs for clients worldwide — myself, Jim Hutchison, Lighting Designer, consultant, and creator of JimOnLight.com, and Tupac Martir, Visual Designer, Light Magician, and creator of Satore Studio in London.  Tupac is bringing his entire studio team’s expertise to projects with Lumen Buddha Studios here in the United States.  I’m so very excited to have another unbelievably creative organization on board!  Lumen Buddha Studios will be offering Lighting Design and Production services to the Events Industry, Concert Production, Corporate Entertainment, Theatre, Dance, Opera, and most experimentally, grand scale Light Art!

This is the first in a few very large events happening in my career right now, and every single bit of it is due to this unbelievably excellent industry we all call home.  There’s some additional big news coming, but you have to wait for that one, just like me!  In the mean time, in addition to @JimOnLight on Twitter, please follow @LumenBuddha for news and information about the opening of this exciting event!  Make sure to also follow @TMartir (Tupac Martir) and @SatoreStudio to keep up with the exciting projects of our UK studio partner!

A message of thanks:
Thank you for all of the support and readership that you have all given me over the last six years.  JimOnLight.com is still going full-speed, and is showing no signs of stopping!  I’ll quit when you quit, and you have all been unbelievable in your support for this site everyday.  Thank you so very much for coming here to read about light every single wonderful day.  David and I wish it were in our power to personally thank each and every pair of eyes that comes here to learn about our favorite thing every single day, but obviously that would be impossible.

Thank you, Light Lovers of Planet Earth.
