Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Many Many MANY thanx go to Dave2 who wisely suggested that I do a LOLcat treatise for my 1001st post on whall.org.  I mean, what says “I have run out of things to say after saying a thousand OTHER things” better than LOLcats?

More specifically –  a LOLcat video.   But not just any video.  An animoto video.  But not just any animoto video.  An animoto video of LOLcats set to Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen’s Tomorrow’s Girls.  (I wanted to use maximum apostrophes).

I had something else in mind for today’s post (specifically, complaining about postage prices and the difficulty of using usps.gov for online postage) but I think you’ll agree this is WAY better.  

Also, as a side note, I’ve decided to give a gift to ALL of you.  I have updated my blog’s theme to support threaded comments.  This means you can reply to the post in general like you always have, or you can reply to a specific comment by clicking the “reply” button under said comment.  Comments with replies will display in a nested fashion.   I’m still testing, but give it a go and let me know what you think.

Skillz.  I has dem.

So, here you go.  LOLimotocats.

You can also watch it on YouTube but the quality is lower.

… so good.

One of my bestest blog and IRL buddies, Jennefer, pointed this little site my way. Have you heard of Animoto? It’s called “the end of slideshows” because you upload photos (or point it to a collection like Picasa or Flikr), pick some music, and then it renders a VERY cool video for you.  It’s like making your very own music video.  For Realz, yall.

You can create 30 second videos for free, pay $3 per full-length video, or get a yearly pass for $30.  You can get $5 off that pass if you sign up through my referral code.  Be careful though – once you create a 30 second video, you will likely want to purchase a full-length one.  I just did.  And judge for yourself how good the quality is.

So here’s “my” first creation, featuring the dogs that we’ve owned for the last 20 years. The music is provided unwittingly by the great and masterful Jonathan Coulton with a song I can’t get enough of called “So Far, So Good”.


And below, you can see the little honorific (or is that horrific?) video Jennefer made for me. I suppose it’s a tribute, but… hmmm, you can judge for yourself :). Um… Thanx, Jen. I think.

tsk tsk
