One Step Closer Into the Future, Fantastic and Scary

Friday, May 21st, 2010

Remember this post? Well, today I am doing some recycling…

As you should know by now, I have been working on a new design for one of my under-attentioned sites which I will be relaunching, well, as soon as I can wrap things up, which is getting closer and closer. As of this writing, I am down to thirteen items to do to finish it.

Of course, that number may go up, as it has previously, if I discover things I forgot that I needed to do or if I decide to add new features. Anyway…

If you like reading and talking about science fiction (scifi) or speculative fiction, listen up…

If you like reading and talking about fantasy fiction, listen up…

If you like reading and talking about horror fiction, listen up…

If you like reading and talking about bizarre (bizarro) fiction, listen up…

If you keep tuning into 30 Rock and are constantly disappointed because they apparently dropped John Lithgow and French Stewart and replaced them with Alec Baldwin and Jack McBrayer and moved the show to New York, listen up.

Okay? I will need some testers. People I know. People I can trust. That means you, if I know and trust you and you’re not a complete psycho.

So, if you think that is you, speak up now or forever hold your peace, or at least hold your peace until the public relaunch of the site, and then only if I decide to let you in then. You know. You hesitate and you takes your chances.

You must like to read.

You must have patience.

You probably shouldn’t be offended easily.

You must be talkative (type-a-tive?). Maybe a little overtly textual.

You know where to leave your pledge to be treated like a number and a guinea pig. Oh, no, I didn’t mean in the Halls of Congress. I meant below…

Sometimes recycling can be a time-saver…

Dance Master Ron Never Rocked On

MP3 Player

Since I can’t put up any new images, here’s another flashback image for you.

It actually looks pretty cool. It’s an MP3 player I made myself. You probably don’t remember it from my “Rock On, Dance Master Ron” post from almost two years ago.

Well, Dance Master Ron never rocked on because I don’t think I ever did that animation I mentioned in the post. In fact, I don’t even remember what the animation was going to be. Maybe it’ll come back to me at some point.

And why was it filed under Science Fiction? Maybe that should be a clue, but it’s not helping.

Rocket Man, Burning Up My Shoes

Sunday, March 28th, 2010


Above is a photo I took of a rocket blasting into deep space.

Pretty cool, eh?

Well, with the magic of Adobe┬« Photoshop┬«, we can pretend that we are watching the rocket launch on an old TV, as if we are back in the 1950′s, watching the dawn of the Space Age.

Rocket Launch on Old TV

Where’s Commander Corry when you need him?

Anyway, the whole adventure has to take place in our imaginations, because the original image was not a rocket launch at all. It was simply a plane crossing the sky.

Plane against Blue Sky

But, you can see how a little manipulation with Photoshop® can turn an ordinary image into something more adventurous.

By the way, if you want to play a little space game I made on Sploder, here is my Space Blaster.
