Super Soaker Book – by Al Davis, 2006

supersoaker_book_aldavis_01Here’s a rather different piece of Super Soaker history. Not really sure how many copies of this book were printed, but this book, by Al Davis (one of the co-founders of Larami Corp. together with Myung Song), gives his personal recounts of how he saw the Super Soaker come to life as well as other insights about life at Larami pre- and post- Super Soaker.

I haven’t finished reading the book, yet. Will post more on this once I do.

iSoakin’ the Moon? – 20161116

While the Super Moon was the other day, after looking longer at the picture of the moon I took yesterday, I realized that the moon also features a re-interpretation of the iSoaker.com logo on the bottom-left side!

What do you think?

I have a suspicion that that blast mark/crater wasn’t left by an asteroid – it was left by an extremely powerful water blaster from the future that tore through the fabric of space/time, leaving it’s mark on our present day moon!  Really!

The Moon – 20161115

20161115-moon

Biggest super moon in nearly 69 years! I tried to get a water blaster into the same frame, but the pictures just didn’t turn out well. Then again, for what it’s worth, I don’t see a “Man in the Moon” as much as I can see a “Water Warriors Kwik Grip in the Moon“.

Can you see it, too?

Nerf Super Soaker HoverFlood (2017) preview

super_soaker_hoverfloodLearned about the upcoming Nerf Super Soaker HoverFlood device on this German website. This does not appear to be a water blaster, per se, but rather a type of sprinkler that, with adequate hose pressure, will cause the blades to spin and the upper sprinkler-section to rise into the air, held aloft by its spinning blade. Could be fun, but how well it actually works remains to be tested.

Nerf Super Soaker Floodinator (2017) preview

Along with the DartFire, found a preview image of the upcoming Nerf Super Soaker Floodinator on this German website. Seeing that it lacks a trigger, currently presuming that this is a pump-action water blaster, but whether it sports a single or fan/spread/burst-type nozzle arrangement remains to be seen.

Nerf Super Soaker DartFire (2017) preview

super_soaker_dartfireFound this potential image of the upcoming Nerf Super Soaker DartFire on this website in Germany. Looks like it will feature some sort of pressurization (it has a trigger), but appears to be a water blaster/dart gun hybrid. My current guess is that it will fire darts together with a stream similarly to how the Nerf Super Soaker Tidal Torpedo Bow shoots water and/or foam rockets.

That said, I don’t have high expectations in terms of its performance.

The Art of Soaking – 20161106 update

After a few days setting up, the new version of The Art of Soaking seems to be up and running relatively smoothly. The biggest back-end challenge remains ensuring that the site remains spam/bot-free while allowing any real Users the ability to register and post if they wish.

The Art of Soaking – Version 2.0

Well, thanks to a faulty phpbb upgrade attempt, the previous forums on The Art of Soaking have been wiped. While I had attempted to back-up the site before doing the upgrade, even the back-up failed to restore the content.

As such, I’ve decided to ditch the previous phpbb installation and will be rebuilding The Art of Soaking now via WordPress.

Will be setting things up on the back-end for a little bit, but on the bright side, the actual image content is not lost – merely presently hidden. I’ll report the lost images soon.

Thanks for your patience and understanding during this rebuilding phase.
