Eyewitness account: Transformers 3 invades Chicago

6:00 AM / Posted by Andy / comments (0)

So, it seems that downtown Chicago has been taken over by giant transforming robots which also happen to be invisible - the story is they only appear on film.  Thanks to Steve Riforgaito for sharing the view from his office.

If you've been wanting to watch Star Wars Episode IV again but were too lazy to find the DVD and hit play, you can watch the entire movie right here . . . in animated GIF form.  Thank FoldsFive in you like this.

And if you like this and want to see The Empire Strikes Back and all three Indiana Jones movies (the last one doesn't count) check them all out at A Little Bit Weird.

Is Chrome faster than lightning?

8:00 AM / Posted by Andy / comments (0)

I have a browser problem - I use Internet Explore, Safari, Firefox, and Chrome and none of them make me completely happy.  Yes, that is a first-world problem and I should get a life but I spend a lot of time online so having a healthy relationship with a browser is important to my mental health.  For now, Chrome may be my favorite.  It has reliable extensions, the address field is also a Google search field, each browser tab is independent, and as you can see from this video, it's wicked fast.

If you've not heard of HTML5, it is the next major update to the web.  It will allow web pages to be interactive without third party plug-ins.  (How often does your computer tell you that you need an updated version of Flash or Java?)  Mr. doob gives us an idea of what we might expect of the web in coming years with this multiuser sketch pad.  For some reason, I woke up at 4 AM and, needing some reason to be awake at that hour, opened up the sketchpad.  There were 6 other people sketching along with me.  Admittedly, I didn't sketch for long, but when I woke up, the page was filled

I'm not a big fan of our 24-hour cable channel news mentality.   News has evolved from a necessary tool of an involved citizen to an entertainment format focused on arguing and hatred.  (Yes, I'm talking about all of them regardless of their political agendas.)   I'm reading today that we are bored with the Gulf oil spill.  How can we focus on this complicated story when LeBron is moving to Miami and Lindsay is moving to a country jail cell (for an hour or two most likely.)

When printers think for themselves.

11:27 AM / Posted by Andy / comments (0)

I bought a printer this past week-end. It took me more than a year to decide what to buy because I've never met a printer that I thought was worth having. For the most part they print but they seem to jam or give me error messages just as often. So, I turned off my brain and bought a wireless printer. It more or less remains active on my network but it will not print a photo on a 4X6 sheet of photographic paper. It insists that I'm using the wrong size paper as if I'm incapable of using a ruler to measure.

I didn't buy this printer. It seems to work.

Celebrating America

10:40 AM / Posted by Andy / comments (0)

When you think of America, the one that we actually live in an not the one that cable-news people talk about 24-7, there may be nothing more quintessentially American than getting in the car and driving incredibly long distances for for the singular purpose of seeing the enormous country in which we live. (Call Guinness and see if that's the longest sentence ever blogged.)

RoadsideAmerica.com is an exhaustive collection of the strange and interesting things you might find on your next summer drive. Check out your town to see what you might have missed. If you searched Springfield, IL you'll read about the time Lauterbach man lost his head in a tornado (uncomfortably close to my house), our 30-foot axe-wielding Lincoln, the inspirational story of Roy Bertelli (Mr. Accordion), and Santa Ana's leg (if you're a "King of the Hill" fan, it is not in the Arlen Museum but safely here in Springfield thanks to Illinois 4th Infantry.)

If you want to create photos or videos that are more visually interesting, you might start here.

This video comes from the incredibly named blog Kill Vampire Lincoln Productions. The video is based upon a work by Wally Wood. If you know who Wally Wood is, you just said, "Cool." If you don't know Wally Wood, get to know him here.
