Chicken Wire Knitting Machine

Also it's got a good beat and is easy to dance to.

This particular machine is weaving mesh used in making Gabions. Although the mesh is larger (3") and the wires used are heavier (11 gauge and heavier) than the chicken wire you can buy at your local store, the manufacturing process is similar.

There is one difference. This machine is doing continuous weave - the twisted wires run in the same direction the entire length of the twist. Chicken wire available in stores is made with a reverse twist - the twist switches direction (reverses itself) half way through the length of the twist. Continuous weave is inherently stronger than reverse twist.

DNA Lounge: Wherein the photos are legion.

We have our usual metric shitload of photos of Blow Up, plus photos of Mortified's sold out 6 Year Annivesary, Ümloud, and some videos (but no photos) of Korpiklaani and Next Big Thing.

You can watch an archive the entire video webcast of Ümloud on Gamespot's Ustream channel.

Also, here's a fun article and video about occasional Mortified house band Live Evil and their party bus: Live Evil versus the Work Day.
