What Adam Savage Thinks About AI

Interesting thoughts on AI and the creative process.

Adam Savage basically nails at least part of what I've been trying to say about this whole #AI thing - two parts, in fact:

1. Even if AI could somehow produce useful content (which, for most intents & purposes, it can't yet, even though everybody seems to think it can), it will be literally point(of view)less.

2. Nobody on the user side seems to be able to point to anything resembling a compelling need; it's all vendor parroting & hypotheticals.

I knew Cotton Bureau’s “direct to garment” printing wasn’t going to be as good as their first-run screen printing, but I didn’t think it’d be this bad.

The poor registration (almost 1mm out at its worst) and colour cast is disappointing considering the price and the four week wait 🙁 They seemingly didn’t/can’t add a spread on the overprint?

At least the @hypercritical tee in the same order will be screen printed when it arrives and should look good 🤞

A “Savage Aeronautics and Space Administration” t-shirt from Cotton Bureau.  It’s a black t-shirt with the word Savage in red across the front.  The direct to garment printing has poor registration and a lack of spread on the colour layer, resulting in the white base layer being visible as an edge on some of the red letters of the wording.  The red colour is also slightly orange.
A closer photo showing the poor registration of the overprinted colour layer, showing a large white edge on the text, particularly on the first two letters S and A.
A screenshot of the same t-shirt on the Cotton Bureau website showing what it’s advertised as looking like, with a richer red that is less orange.

Remember when on Twitter Adam Savage was asked what his fursona was and he said a lion? I did draw his fursona! And he SIGNED IT at FanExpo! Thanks to @Auraus and Sierralad for making it happen!

I guess museum curators are also librarians after a fashion - these guys are so patient, both in their explanations & the on-going process of discovery and knowledge expansion.

In a world we like to call "the information society" I still can't understand why they aren't considered our superheroes.

More amazing #movie #props from Earl Hayes Press, plus something about chip bags in films that you probably didn't think of. Well, I didn't - but it's one of those "of course!" things once your learn it...

Wren & Niko's reaction is, if anything, understated compared to how I'd respond to a tour of Adam Savage's cave by the man himself...

I didn’t know I wanted to make this until I saw Adam Savage inspect it on his YouTube channel Tested. It’s the Rita helicopter blade sword from Edge of Tomorrow. I love the combination of a real world item used as a ridiculous Animie sized weapon.

Do you know The Earl Hayes Press?

Did you say "No"?

You're wrong.

You do know Earl Hayes, you just don't know it. Every single printed prop used in the entire 100+ year history of #Hollywood film - every newspaper, magazine, poster, ID card, document, letter, label, banknote, plus a crap-load of stuff you wouldn't even think of as "printed"- was made there. Every. Single. One.

@js I was watching #AdamSavage on Tested (Jump to 2:40) where Adam says a lot of Aussie nicknames end in either Z or O. There was also a Reddit article ( I found this fascinating as the poster asked for people’s names and he’d given them their #Aussie nickname equivalent. Alas, no James I could find. #Australia

The work that @sophywong does with fabric and #3dprinting is just incredible!

There is a fair few details in the amazing interview #AdamSavage did with her a few months ago - highly recommended if you haven't seen it yet!

Great interview from #AdamSavage and #Tested about traditional techniques for building a codex book in the European style.

Make sure you watch past the first 5 minutes. The interview starts a little awkward as the curator settles into being on camera and Adam struggles to recenter himself after she makes a statement about book tech that surprises him.

But after that... they both settle in and it becomes awesome.


Model maker, #Mythbuster, and #Tested editor-in-chief #AdamSavage has a healthy obsession with historical #armor—he’s even made his own full suit of armor—but he’s never held a real #gauntlet from #history… until this #museum visit #video.

I begin using craft foam to decorate the cockpit of the ship. Shiny cardboard panels have been added to the hull, with a square hole-punch being used to cut some notches in them. Got that idea from #AdamSavage video on starship paneling.
I apply modpodge over the foam and masking tape over the moving parts of the swivel turret.
A couple dollar store legos are used to make some rectangular vent areas.

Yes, I know, it's another example of the effort humanity is willing to put into warfare & weapons - but holy cr*p, I had no idea they made chainmail this elaborate, let alone that we still restore it that way...!

Adam Savage speaks at DEFCON 17 - this is gonna be good. I haven't watched it yet though.

I bought Adam Savage's book, Every Tool's a Hammer, for some inspiration (hopefully). I actually had to stop watching his Tested Vlodcasts because the audio was atrocious (please Will, get someone who knows what they're doing) and I kinda got tired of hearing Adam name drop (yeah yeah, we know you know famous people). But he is an amazing maker, and hopefully it will be inspirational and entertaining.
