Slide Guy at Camp Magic MacGuffin

Monday, June 18th, 2012

So the Slide Guy took a bit of a visit to the MineCraft incarnation of Camp Magic MacGuffin this week, looking for appropriate places to practice his sliding skills.

He was captured trying out the stairs at the Bunk Five Archery Range

As it would turn out, however, he seemed to spend the most time at the Waterslide over at CampX.   Here is Slide Guy enjoying the waterside. Over and over!

UPDATE:  I took a close look at all of the Slide Guy images to see if anyone had done the waterslide — and somehow missed Martha’s. When I saw the work of Noise Professor Maybe Next Time D’Arcy and Tim Wins, I decided to go with an animated GIF. So clearly Slide Guy was on that waterside during the day, AND still at sunset. Or maybe at sunset, and STILL the next day.  At any rate, he must love sliding.

Slide on, Slide Guy. Slide on!

Slide Guy’s Mean Machine

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

So I was on campus today and spotted what at a distance looked like a cool, big sculpture in happy colors. So I spun around the traffic circle again and headed that way.

The closer I got, the weirder this sculpture looked. It was really some kind of huge machine, a cross between a catapult and an earth-moving machine. And it was armed with a serious-looking ray gun.

Needless to say, I was getting a little worried until I saw that Slide Guy was on the machine, checking things out.

I’ll sleep better tonight knowing Slide Guy 106 is on the case.

GIMP is not yet my friend but we’re getting along better. Could not figure out how to scale Slide Guy to fit, but I was happy that I took several shots from all angles to be sure I had one that would work.
