I got Taylor's point right off. (I only ever memorized how to do the first two layers, but in my geek-cred defense, I did create a model of the tetrahedral version of the puzzle before it hit the market, and I still own all the regular polygon versions.) I think the essence of this puzzle is that the solution is shown currently: one and only one copy of each image per face, arranged as shown.

I was wondering if we should offer a poster version of the Zelda_Pinwheel Avatar Gallery at the Ministry store? Credits per originator, or keep it obscure?

of course the only difficulty with that plan is that it's an on-going project... (i hope...)

So, I'm surprised that Madame Broshkina didn't find the original Zelda Pinwheel album covers:

For MB, it wasn't worth the effort. Too easy for an avatar genius.

Well, yeah. This would be the 2008 collection. (Or is it the 2004 collection?)

Our Zelda is the original. That is merely a tribute band.
(IMO not an especially good band either.)

Normally I think musicians should stick to music instead of getting involved in causes. But this new video remake by Bob Dylan is a cause I can get behind.

Subterranean Homesick Blues

The Jester pulling for ZP. Brilliant once again, MB. How do you find this stuff, man? By the way, I couldn't help but giggle over Weird Al Yankovic's rendition of same. Lisa Bonet Ate No Basil - cool. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nej4xJe4Tdg&NR=1

I envision a t-shirt with Zelda Avatars arranged on a bingo board. Each of us has a different arrangement of avatars. Then on a specific date Zelda starts changing her avatar at specific intervals. When one of us gets 5 in a row we yell, "Zelda!" and win.

We could charge a bit more for the t-shirts to cover the prize pool and offer such desirable things as a downloadable version of a Steve Jordan novel or a pbook such as The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification by Julian Montague. (Yes, it is a real book in my shrinking pbook collection.)

Just got back from Vegas. Spent the whole time playing Zelda Slots. If I would have gotten 3 Super Zelda's in a row I would have won a ton of money. Alas luck was not with me tonight. I had to sell my spleen just to get bus fare back home.

i vote for the Stray Shopping Carts book !!!!!! in e-book edition of course, hand-made with loving care by yourself perhaps ? of course, if you win, we'll have to think of a different prize... perhaps we could provide you with a copy of Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Nude Mice; 1978 (University of Tokyo Press).

the dangers of gambling. now we have to start a chip-in to buy madame broshkina a new spleen. luckily i'm pretty sure natch still has a few in stock ; maybe if we ask him nicely he'll make us a deal.

I was thinking about the problem of randomized t-shirts with bingo cards. CafePress won't do it, but I could make a web page that would present a different set of random Zelda avatars in bingo card form each time it is visited. Then you could print off the web page onto iron-on transfer stock and make your own tshirts....
