Ah, Labor Day weekend. It typcially signals the end of Summer (though there are three more weeks until the season changes on the calendar). It’s time for one last BBQ before putting away the equipment. And it’s time for one last DIY project that isn’t attached to Halloween, Thanksgiving, or the December holidays. I scoured Vine for some six-second inspirations, and I think you’ll like what I found. Indeed, I may well have to tackle the beer bottle lamp myself!

    Oh good ANOTHER web thingie based on flash to view media with that doesn’t work any better than what we already have. Doesn’t work on my pc even when I turn off flashblock. Why not use youtube?!?

      I’m pretty sure Vine uses HTML5, not Flash. But that doesn’t explain why they’re not working for you.

    I can’t get vines to run, either, even when I tell Noscript to allow everything on the page and do “unsafe reload.” Not just for this post, but for several other vines-based posts recently.

    Sigh. Another “revolutionary” technology.

    Here are the two links for the Rogue beer bottle chandelier. I may this in about 24 hours, nothing to hi-tech.
