I'm still 'developing' pics from the SEA trip. Enjoy these adorable otters!

Here's a sneak peek. It's going to take me weeks to get through all 700+ pics I took (mostly of otters).

The other week, I saw this little oddity in the Greenwich station parking lot.

It's a Spyker C8 Laviolette. A Dutch mid-engine/rear wheel drive exotic. It's got an Audi V8 engine in it, and is sexy as hell. I happened to have my 'real' camera with me (although not the best lens for this shoot), and took the opportunity.

Overall, I liked the rollercoaster ride that was the film. I didn't however like the film (wha?!?). In the spirit of "Everything Wrong with X", I will now spew specific points in the film that bothered me enough to rip me out of warp, and into the cold, emptiness of space.

    Sooooo Many Spoilers )

    So what did you think of the film?

    I thought I'd fill you in on some stuff I've been doing as of late. Despite no longer working for MartianCraft, I've been keeping rather busy.

    Briefs Launched!

    Finally, after a very long hard slog, Briefs has finally launched on the App Store. It's an application suite that allows designers and developers to prototype their mobile applications natively on their device. The suite consists of a Mac app that allows you to create a 'Brief' (a prototype), and iPad/iPhone apps to play them. Check it out here: http://giveabrief.com

    Bay Area Creative Pro User Group is alive!

    My friend and colleague Kanen Flowers started up a user group for creative professionals in the Bay Area. If you're a professional in a creative field, join up! Even if you're not, but are interested in what professional content creators (filmmakers, audio engineers, photographers, web designers, etc) do, come hang out with us! We have beverages and prizes! http://bacpug.org

    Oh, and I designed the logo!



    Folks in TV production, and perhaps electrical engineers will find the medallion somewhat familiar.

    I've also been podcasting my brains out!

    Good gods. In the last few months I've been honoured to have some amazing guests on Ruining It For Everyone. We've also received some nice shout-outs from other podcasts that almost caused our server to crash.


    Etc
    There's some more stuff, but I can't reveal it just yet.

    Hero Punk!

    Some of you folks know my show, Ruining It For Everyone is now part of the Scruffy.TV network. The Scruffies are also working on a feature film called Hero Punk. The film involves steampunkish-hackers, mutants, corrupt governments, and super heroes. What's not to love?

    We've got a kickstarter campaign going. Feel free to kick in a few bucks, and be part of an independent film.

    There are some amazingly talented folks working on this project both in front of, and behind the camera. Do check it out.

    I'm watching this unfold through Twitter, and the emergency services radio band.

    Two explosions at the end of the Boston Marathon.

    Current injuries: 30+
    Current dead: 3

    Third explosion was controlled, at or near JFK Library.

    If you're looking for someone, text them, don't call (to keep the lines open).

    I've been so excited to see this come to fruition.

    The Penny Arcade folks have decided to create a Project Runway or Top Chef-like web-based contest reality show. They stuffed the contestants into a house in what looks to be Bellevue, WA where they will compete to become America's Next Top Model Comic Drawer/Writer/Person/Nugget/Thingy.

    In the first episode, they don't really do much, except bring everyone into the house. They're going for short, 15-20 minute episodes, twice weekly. I wonder if this format will hurt them. Aside from the endless recaps in televised reality contest shows, the hour long format does give the opportunity to get to know the contestants better than shorter bursts. Of course, we're still in the 'too many people you won't see for verymuch longer' stage. In the end, it may not matter.

    While it's unfortunate it had to come down to this, I'm actually feeling much better.

    More later…

    I had a very quick trip to Cambridge this week-end. My apologies for not making it widely known, but I was pretty busy the entire time I was there. I did however, manage to take some pictures with my new lens. These are really just random test shots, nothing too interesting. I need to shoot more. I've forgotten some basic technique.
