"Which five cartoons would you recommend to people to get an idea of who you are?"
Kimba the White Lion
Rocko's Modern Life
Spend the bulk of your time and money on the part of the hobby that feeds your soul. It's good that it's the camera and the original image creation that appeals to you most. You can't fix a crappy image in post. Get it right when you shoot it!
It's the composition of this image that I love so much. (BTW, the "official rule" is to never center, always use the rule of thirds, and other crap. Most of that is borderline hogwash.) You're definitely going down the right track.
I took an Adobe Premiere video editing class at Open Signal, which is Portland's community access cable TV station. It turns out that I like editing a lot. I'm going to explore it more over the next few months. Maybe it's a new career path.
In order to get more practice and learn Premiere better, I made a commercial for one of their TV shows. (Caution: It's slightly rude.)
Does anybody know of any #PeerTube instances that focus on the Pacific Northwest (USA) or history?
I went to the DorkbotPDX meetup last night. We did some necromancing on this old Panasonic Sr. Partner "portable" computer from 1983. It has an 8088 processor and a built-in printer! We managed to boot it up with an old DOS floppy, then we played the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!
If you're curious about this beast:
Haven’t been active here for a while… Sorry :-) To make up for it, I got the film back from Oxford adventures in July (Needed to finish a roll).
Here is the Headington Shark, a monument to one guys long fight with a local councils planning department.
Something I’ve wanted to make a pilgrimage to for a long time.
Film is Ilford HP5 Plus ISO 400.
Gab moved into our neighborhood. I'm not happy about it, but I avoided reading most of the toots about it. I have to set boundaries in my life to preserve my mental health. I have to rely on the instance admins to block federation with #Gab servers. Things seem to be working out well, so far at least.
I came across two recent articles about all of this. If you're not interested, I'm sorry for breaking my rule and polluting your feed!
I took the camera to the repair shop. They said that it appears to be OK. They can't tell for certain unless they pull it apart. The electronics work, which is a good sign.
So I decided to do the rice trick, which people usually do after their cell phone accidentally falls into the toilet.
I'm going to pull it out in a week and hope that it's going to be fine.
The image below is a photo of me this morning (not actual photo).
I went to the Adult Soapbox Derby today. One of the cars is named "Rainmaker".
The perpetrator of said car thought it would be hysterical to drench me with a super soaker as he drove by. I'm not talking little squirt gun. I'm talking portable fire hose or something!
Not only was I drenched, but so was my non-weathersealed camera!
