With three-ish weeks til Maker Faire, we’re getting ready to bring SOMA back to the San Mateo County Event Center. Last May, we brought one of her nuclei out to the event, to demonstrate the kind of work we do, and show off our new piece. SOMA has long since been finished, and this year we’ll be bringing her out in her completed form!

This week we’ll be doing some final tweaking and modifying. Our fantastic plumbers are busy reconstructing the manifold, making new poofer pilots and repositioning poofer spouts for a slightly different visual effect. Come out to Maker Faire on May 22 & 23, 2010 and see our giant flaming neuron, in her new and improved form.

The first weekend of April is upon us! Eggs will be hunted! Bunnies will jam! Jesus will be judged hunky! Big wheels will be raced at breakneck speed!
And in the midst of all the mayhem, we’d like to invite you to a very special event for two of our favorite lotus girls. Come join us for the:
“Stay/Go Party” …or
“Help Mills get closer to the $5085 she needs to keep her awesomeness in the Bay Area AND Wish Brent farewell on his Near East adventure so he can get his ass out of here”
Background: Mills needs money to pay for lawyer and government filing fees for her GREEN CARD so you can keep her here setting fire to things like only she knows how! Otherwise she will be kicked back to blighty in August 2011 Brent is off to New Zealand and we are going to wish him on his merry way!

so, the bad news, is that the Flaming Lotus Girls will not be at Yuri’s Night this year. for reasons beyond our control we won’t be bringing the Angel or the Serpent despite our previous announcements otherwise. it will still be a glorious event down at NASA. so, buy your tickets now and enjoy!
the good news is that we *are* bringing Soma to Maker Faire on May 22nd and 23rd in San Mateo! We’re working hard to get Soma working as she was always meant to for this event. We hope you come out to see us then!
and, as always, the Flaming Lotus Girls meet every Wednesday night at The Box Shop in Hunters Point in San Francisco. (Located on Hunters Point Blvd. at Innes just next to India Basin Park). We’ll be working in the shop this Saturday, and there’s LOTS to do. So, if you’re interested in seeing what we get up to, come down and join us!
