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.

Bohemian Rhapsody by 25 artists

Saw this on Kazim’s Korner.  Reminded me of the Evolution of Dance video in a way, in that it’s one of those “must watch at some point in life” videos.  Why not watch them now? hmm?


WHALLcats

I had mentioned earlier that I came up with WHALLcats, a complete rip-off of LOLcats, but I didn’t mention that I don’t have any cats.  So all of my images are going to be of Jupiter, Zena or Nacho.  Maybe Maverick and Nitro (passed away).  The name stuck tho.

So I started on a couple.

The only frustrating part of this is that the software I use (SnagIt) for most of my quick photo manipulation needs – it’s truly a fantastic tool for quick changes, but it doesn’t support fonts with colored outlines, so I end up with letters that either need a bright or dark outline.  So far, I had to just do a quick black line across the bottom.  I think that’s annoying, both to make and to read.  I guess I could use the LOLcats generator if I needed to…

In fact, I did – I went ahead and used the generator on this photo above and I must say, it is better than mine.

Here’s another try with the generator.  I think I’ll stick with it from now on.

So I don’t think that these are “worthy” of trying to submit to I Can Has Cheezeburger… but if you think they are, add a comment and let me know. I know that if I do get one that’s very good, I’ll submit it.


Guitar Heronoid

So, seems someone came up with a robot to play Guitar Hero for you.  Sounds like a great robotic project for a young up-and-comer in the science community – especially if they have a passion for music, technology, and overall high injections of coolosity.

Click on the picture to get a full run-down on the construction, fingers, strumming, the technology they used to “listen” to the screen and music and putting it all together.

It really is a fascinating read.

Someone recently sent me a few photos in a category called “Just the right angle”.  I find them humorous; therefore I must share.

The first set is PG rated, and the second set (click for more down below) is more PG-13.

This is a fun little clip hosted on Google Video of my brother on stage, back in the day, with his band “Power Trip.  It starts off ok, and then some guy gets in front of the camera.  So my brother (Chris) did some video editing to make it more interesting.  And funny.

This video of a traffic system with no traffic lights, stop signs or order at all shows you why it’s so important that we have the traffic laws that we do have.

Either that, or make everyone have a GREAT insurance plan.

I can’t tell – are those motorcycles or bicycles?  Brave riders, either way.

Finally got the link for where all those cool illusions are.  I think it’s great work/discovery on getting these to trick the eye.

My favorite is the “Rotating Snakes” one.  It even “works” on my blackberry screen.

This YouTube video is entertaining.  Not quite what the hype made it out to be when I first heard about it, but still, I liked it.  I’m thinking I might do stuff like this if I didn’t work so much, do the family thing, have other hobbies, etc. 

Man, I can’t wait to get rich and work on music for a  long time.  Caitlin (daughter, currently 12yr old) and I recently got a USB Midi controller for the computer and her Roland K90 keyboard.  We plan on doing quite a bit with the midi stuff but haven’t found the right software application for it yet.
