I’ve been working on my Nativity scene this week. As an atheist with an appreciation for tradition and ritual, but a certain disgust for religions that co-opt religious traditions from religions that they wish to destroy, my Nativity parody is surely blasphemous, but hopefully in a whimsical way. That is pretty much the “proceed at your own risk” announcement that I will post with the final product.
However, because these prop-heavy, detail-oriented posts take me a while, and, in this case, have multiple alternate scenes, the actual set-up and photo-production of my Nativity post will take weeks. I was in my “studio” (aka garage) today, laughing over props, and got to wondering if you all would more appreciate the finished product, with a later “behind the scenes” post, or whether you would like to see how a post is built, from beginning to end. This is a feedback post. My blog isn’t really a democracy, because I am PlasticLand God, but if there is strong enough interest, without too much pitiful begging not to give away the scenes, I will put together a “Making Of…” post for the Nativity.
