Stay busy William, your clock is coming along nicely.

Hey, I was working on the face today and had an idea for a new kind of clock.
It’ll work just like a regular clock, except it’ll have twelve numbers on it, all fives.
Get it?
It’s always five o’clock somewhere!

Dude my wife even thinks that was funny.

What time are all the clocks in Pulp Fiction?
What time are most of the clocks in advertizements?

It’d be good to see ya KTMM. Just let me know when and I’ll have the coffee waiting.
SuperD, I enjoy trivia very much. I did not know about that fact of Pulp Fiction. I hadn’t watched that movie in a long time. It looks like I’m going to have to dust off my copy and give it a new looking at. That movie (like so many are) is full of little tidbits like that.
Here’s a challenge for anyone who thinks we’re nuts.
Take your favorite movie. Watch it with your finger on the pause button because that’s what it takes to find some of this stuff. Go through it and pause every few seconds and pay close attention to the smalest details. It is amazing what producers put into their movies. Some I think just pack all kids of things in there as personal jokes just to see if anyone ever picks up on it. Some stick one certain event into all their movies. A good example of that one is Alfred Hitchcock being in all his movies. In some it is hard to spot him, but he is in every one of his movies as an extra somewhere. Sometimes it’s only a shadowy outliine of himself, but he’s there nonetheless.
My kids get aggrevated with me when we watch movies though because I like to pick out all the things that are wrong. Movies are meant to be works of art (in theory, we all know some of the junk out there today could never be considered art). Common sense and things such as plausability go out the window though when they make them.

Thanks Sheila. I’m glad I decided to do it. Now I’m having a familiar problem that I always get when I do a clock. I’m getting ideas for all kinds of clocks I’d like to do. This is in addition to the Dome Clock and Stand that I’ve been drooling over for so long. If finances don’t improve, I think I’m going to start hinting at my family about getting those plans for my birthday, Christmas, or something.

Wow, man… This beauty looks like antiques I saw in Germany.
Can’t wait to see it finished.

(superdav721)
Not certain about the clocks in ‘Pulp Fiction’ but, I do know that watches and clocks in adverts are set to 1010hrs.
That is because it makes the time piece “smile”. Can’t put 1620hrs on them… that would make them “frown”.
