miles of light explode



"watchin' a stretch of road, miles of light explode..." - My Morning Jacket
________________________________________

Jen and I were having some fun with the cam while driving home on saturday night. she started taking some really cool shots of the lights, with slow shutter speed. we took this one while passing some kind of factory or plant on the way back out to the islands. hoping to eventually get the time to play with some of these shots in Aftereffects, set them to some good tunes, etc... we'll see.

luminous


"It is necessary to return to the point where the interplay of light and dark reveals forms, and in this way to bring richness back into architectural space." - Tadao Ando

 

This yarn made from a Pet bottle.

Whether it's been a while since you last checked out Engrish.com, or if you've never been there before... it's high time you stopped by. some truly hilarious photos of signage, labels, and whatnot from Japan.

enjoy the "poisonous and evil rubbish"!

meet Stanky



Stanky has a lot on going on at the moment. He's a little bogged down, really. He may be stopping by hepcat.daily from time to time in the future, though.

Out Of Step

ran across a great bit of satire on buffalobeast.com today. here's a brief sampling of the article:

MIDDLE AMERICA Out of Step with Mainstream Hollywood Values
The Academy Awards ceremony last week, and especially host Chris Rock's politically charged comedy, provoked a firestorm of criticism from conservatives, proving that red state voters are still out of step with the values of the Hollywood entertainment community.
....
"These fringe-right bomb-throwers have got to get the message that regular Americans love half-naked sluts and rapid gunfire," said Dennis Franz, star of "NYPD Blue." America has spoken, and they have chosen my flabby ass."
.....
"Salma Hayek's shocking cleavage was bad enough, but when I saw Rene Zellwegger's near-satanic combination of dyed black hair, pale white skin and tight red mermaid outfit, I was so outraged that I got a raging erection," said (Bill O'Reilly) on his popular show. "I had no choice but to spend the entire duration of the broadcast defiling myself with a vibrator and Murphy's Oil Soap. It was a disgusting, sick display, and it just goes to show that Hollywood has not learned anything from George Bush winning the last election by a razor-thin margin."

pretty damn funny, if you ask me... and it goes on for quite a bit. beats anything that i've seen on The Onion in ages, by a long shot.

click the headline above (or here) for the rest of the piece.

 

i got nuttin'



blogger is being a major pain in the ass these days. publishing new posts is taking upto ten minutes here. just navigating the blogger.com site is like pulling teeth too. i really need to get around to setting this thing up with movable type already.

up the beach



one of my personal favorites. i took this one about two years ago, with my first digital camera. it may not look like it, but there's very little post-processing on this one - just a sepia gradient overlay and some contrast tweaking.

i love the texture of the sand in the foreground, the warped horizon-line of the ocean, the grainy look of the sky, and the loose sand that's blowing away from the cam.... seems like it's all being drawn towards JLR in the background there.

Johnson Square



seems like my digital camera is starting to crap out on me. have only had it for maybe a year and a half, but more often than not lately, most of my shots turn out either blurry or completely washed out (or both) - regardless of wether i have set it manually or just used the automatic function. can you say "planned obsolescence"?... oh well, got some good use out of it, i guess. anyway, this is prompting me to have some more fun altering the photos after the fact.

late in the day



wandered around the historic district on saturday. they have turned all of the fountains green for St Patty's Day. "officials" wearing their goofy lookin' green suits all over the place. town is packed to the gills with tourists already too. maybe i should have called this one "the calm before the storm".

...at least that's what JLR calls them, especially when they're all nestled together like this.

plant 2



this sucker sits directly between a bunch of bars, a club or two, a few nice restaurants... and their view of the Savannah River. you could probably hold a florescent bulb and watch it glow just from the stray electricity.

more nonsense.

While we're still waiting for the new hosting company to get their shit together, I figured that I would throw out some more links to the random stuff that has kept me entertained this week while taking breaks from working too much. check 'em out:
_______________________________________

Idiot Videos - if that link's not working, then go here and click the "videos" button. this guy sets audio clips from movies like The Big Lebowski, Office Space, and Reservoir Dogs to cleverly edited video from classic Saturday morning cartoons, Charlie Brown, and other random sources. some of it is pretty hilarious. do yourself a favor and check out "TPS" and "Legion of Dogs" at least. well worth the download.

RoboDump 1.0 - someone who has way too much time on his hands.

Bad Cartridge - new tune from Beck... rocking the gameboy like a moldy crouton.

Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride" - trailer for the new stop motion film from Burton, coming this fall... just in time for Halloween, of course.

Philip K. Dick's "A Scanner Darkly" - Richard Linklater directs his own adaptation, using the same digital rotoscoping tech that he used on "Waking Life". Dick's own family claims that it is "the very first faithful adaptation of a Philip K. Dick story." we'll see. watch the trailer here.

...that's it for now, back to work.
