Posted:if it had been masking tape instead of gaffer then you would still have an attached doorframe. therefore masking tape is the best tape.

I thought that sentiment was pretty much universal. Maybe it is a Canadian thing...~?

I don't know if I should be proud of this or if I should go wait in the cupboard for a merciful nation to invade and save us from ourselves.

Posted:Magic tape. It sticks when you want it to, and doesn't when you don't. Or is that the other way around?

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:i would definitely have to go with gaff on this one. being in theatre, soon to be "professionally" (i'll graduate one of these days ) i have many, many stories about gaff.

btw, shurtape is the best gaff tape, it's got the strongest adhesive, and will stay on thru the wash, had a peice covering a hole in my trouser leg for over a year now. not to mention taping freshmen to the battens and flying them out.

masking tape is good for just about anything that dosen't require strength, or where a strong adhesive would destroy the material (ie painting, you can't mask with gaffer tape, you'll pull off any paint underneath it) it's also MUCH more economic to use for around the house. for selected applications, metallic tape (for fixing mufflers and such) is also very good, but that's more like a big metal band-aid than tape, Imho, that is.

happy new year to all, i hope you have (or have had, depending on location) as rockin a time as i plan to.

smoochies,
-Rhys

Nothing beats the power of duct tape

Helpful hint: To keep people off your lawn duct tape a sign that says Warning: Landmines to an exploded car. Place car next to crater


In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird, now the world is weird and they take prozac to make it normal again.
