Guess who's posting from his brand new unlimited-like-everything Windows phone that he got for Christmas? Yup.



I also got socks!

Valentine Kitteh Love

I haven't been here in awhile and hope to catch up soon. Meanwhile, Happy Valentine's Day everyone, and I just had to brag about my new family member! She came home with me a couple of days ago. She's got jazz gloves, white go-go boots like Nancy Sinatra, a warm, fuzzy and kickass demeanor, and the longest tail of any cat I've ever had. (sorry for the bad photos).

Scout says "Hi SLU!"

Thanks so much Isabeau, Kaimi, Darnk and Erich. She's almost the only bright spot in what has been a horrible 8 months.

I was reading a book earlier today (Jim Hines' Unbound, the third Magicka Ex Libris novel) and a character referenced Nancy Kress' Beggars in Spain.

This is only notable because it turns out I had read the first novella years ago, as a part of a yearly sci-fi anthology, and I have been trying to remember the author and/or title for years now. After checking wikipedia I am 95% certain the first part of the book is what I read, and I only found out about it because I was reading a different, totally unrelated book!

6 year old's stuffed tiger goes on an adventure in tampa

Hobbs got left behind. I love what the Tampa Airport manager did with Hobbs while the kid was visiting in Houston. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

I spent close to 20 years doing product visualization as my primary source of income. If you're unfamiliar with the phrase it means I created photorealistic 3d rendered images for companies of their products when photography was impractical or because with 3d I can do things that photography can't do, like photograph things that don't yet actually exist. A couple of years ago I lost my two main clients who'd been my primary source of income for a very, very long time. It wasn't because of me or the quality of my work but because the economy and a rapidly changing marketplace for their products finally caught up with them and they stopped spending any money on advertising. Since them I haven't done a single viz job, or been able to find a job using those skills (did I mention that I suck at self-promotion?). Finally, a week ago, I got a call from someone I used to work with who contracted me to do a visualization job for his client. Holy shit does it feel good to get back on that horse.

Hopefully this will turn into a much bigger job. Right now I'm just doing two variations of a single product. There are around 25 other variatiants I'll hopefully get to do. And maybe, if I'm really lucky, and they really like the results, I'll get to do some of their other products as well, and maybe some animation too. Even if none of that pans out, it just feels really, really good after more than two years to be working in my niche again, for actual money, and finding out that I still seem to know what I'm doing.

Done and delivered. The customer is very happy and ordered 15 more variations. And another small job from another former client is incoming. It's going to be a very busy October!

Even when things may not be the best, this video always makes me happy. ^_^

I swear to god I could watch this video on repeat for 24 hours straight.
It's hypnotic and makes me smile.

It's the combination of music, the lights, the movements, and the gal.
I'm really a very simple guy.


EDIT TO ADD:
Oh, I thought it was about absolutely random stuff that made us happy.
More generally? Spending quality time with very close friends.

I guess this goes here... The folks over at CBS' The Late Show have put up a Youtube channel of over 1200 videos, each one with Charlene Love singing the Happy Birthday song customized to individual names!

(OK, it's a bit of a cheat but the project is pretty fabulous.)


Youtube channel link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_J...KqL0URii26OIXw

Someone really needs to create an alphabetized/searchable list of these videos. Get on it, internet!

I found mine! I have my earbuds on and it's a little strange having (I think?) Stephen Colbert breathlessly speak my name into my ears.
