The Complete Big Biting Pig Production CollectionWell now, that was fun [smiley::D] . . .

If you have been following this blog during the last few days you have surely noticed I have been spamming (or should I say "hamming") up the place with my ongoing project to create sets of animated GIF image files for each of the 8 Big Biting Pig Productions movies.

This post is now presented as a "table of contents" for those articles. The image map below will allow you to go directly to the GIF set for the show of your choice. I hope you take the time to visit each of them...

This was actually a very enjoyable exercise in film editing (albeit on a micro scale.) It is my hope that these images will serve to promote the hard work done by all those associated with Big Biting Pig Productions. I encourage you to get to know these people and their projects This is independent film making at it's finest (and funnest!) [smiley:;)]

Giving the GIFs of Horror

masodo's musings

Big Biting Pig ProductionsOk, so it is no secret that I have been on the Big Biting Pig bandwagon lately. Of course with the recent release of their latest horror feature, "The Caretakers", the buzz has been pretty intense in my neck of the woods. In the midsts of all this hoopla I have been inspired to get a bit creative and have decided to harvest the Big Biting Pig Trailer videos for some prime animated "GIFage."

I have decided to create two or three of these for each of the Big Biting Pig Productions movies - 8 of them to date - starting with their latest and moving backwards through the collection. This installment of 4 image files is from "The Caretakers"

Enjoy!

Big Biting Pig Productions Logo (With Fangs)Thanks to everyone that attended the super-exclusive Indianapolis Edition of the Big Biting Pig Productions - "The Caretakers" World Premiere Event. The movie was well received by all in attendance and a great time was certainly enjoyed. I regret that we were unable to make the drive to Madisonville, Kentucky for the official event and I would like to formally thank Steve Hudgins and Pj Woodside for their kindness and support in helping me realize my goal of joining the piglets' celebration in absentia.

Congratulations to Steve, PJ, Felicia and the entire cast and crew
of "The Caretakers" for a job well done.

Pin-Up Girl Realized

masodo's musings

A potential Pin-Up GalleryWhile admiring a lovely "Pin-Up Girl" image at the occasional Pin-Up Gallery (a.k.a. Service Station, Machine Shop, Warehouse, etc...) one is often compelled by nature to imagine this idealized form as though it is representing a real, live, flesh-and-blood lady. Well gentlemen, dream no more; as we pull back the veil of paint and canvas to reveal the girls behind the glamor.

Behind The Project:
While loitering around the website here I noticed in the Reddit Feed (available only to logged-in members) the headline "Before Photoshop, there was pinup art." I was not exactly sure how to take that so I clicked the link to investigate. What I found was a JPG image file 720px X 9,779px containing 20 pairs of images showing Pin-Up paintings next to the actual working photographs that were used as the artist's guide.

This to me was an incredible find and since I am all about sharing incredible internet discoveries I just knew somewhere in that collection of images was a post just waiting to happen. It occurred to me that the source photograph was so close to the finished artwork that it would be so cool to have one dissolve into the other. That is exactly what I did; as exhibited in the slide presentation below.

Enjoy!

Note: If you are not seeing a smooth transition between slides click "Restart Presentation"

BlogDogIt Note: A closer inspection of many of these photos has revealed a "Nylon.net" watermark. I visited that site and have discovered that these images are of the one-and-only "Sabrina" (Norma Ann Sykes), "the impossibly-proportioned darling of Britain." Nylon.net maintains the The Encyclopaedia Sabrina - The Authoritative Reference for All Things Sabrina. So in keeping with that sites "Terms of Use Agreement" I am happy to be able to link back to them so that you might further educate yourself about Sabrina:

Here at BlogDogit.com we are nothing if not generous. So in addition to taking the "Pledge to PUT" I have created the accompanying graphical elements that I hope might prove useful to the Project PUT movement. In addition to these items I have prepared many other sizes and formats that I will gladly give to the project if they wish to have them.

XP Users: Kill Internet Explorer NOW!

  • Contributed by:
  • Views: 216
masodo's musings

Please Read Carefully:

Firefox Eats IEBy now all users of the Windows XP operating system should be aware that Microsoft is no longer offering support for that system and as a result the built-in internet browser "Internet Explorer" is no longer to be considered safe for use. Any XP computer now used to access the internet should be using another browser (Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera, etc.) for internet access. Once you have another browser installed you should disable Internet Explorer to prevent it from gaining access to the outside world. Unfortunately Internet Explorer is not a program that can be completely uninstalled but it is possible to effectively "turn it off."
 

STEP 1 - Before You Disable Internet Explorer You Must Install An Alternative Browser. BlogDogIt.com Recommends Firefox. Click the image below to go to the official Mozilla.org - Firefox Download Page:

  Get Firefox - Different By Design

During the installation process be sure to set Firefox as the default internet browser. You can also choose to transfer all your bookmarks and passwords as well.

The simplest and least destructive way to disable Microsoft Internet Explorer is to prevent it from being able to find the internet by pointing it to a "Dummy" proxy server. A proxy server normally acts as a relay of communications to and from the internet. By instructing IE to get its information from a non-existent proxy every attempt to access the internet will fail.

STEP 2 - Click the link below to download a zip file that contains the registry update file named  "DisableIE-XP.reg" save this file to your desktop (or wherever) and double click it to automatically disable Internet Explorer on your system.

Disable IE via Dummy-Proxy


When you double-click the DisableIE-XP.reg file you will get a pop-up alert asking:

"Are you sure you want to add the information in DisableIE-XP.reg to the registry?"

Select "Yes" and you will then get a confirmation that:

"Information in DisableIE-XP.reg has been successfully entered into the registry."

Alternatively you can copy the text from the box below and paste it into a text file named DisableIE-XP.reg if you would feel safer not using the prepared download.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInternet Settings]
"MigrateProxy"=dword:00000001
"ProxyEnable"=dword:00000001
"ProxyHttp1.1"=dword:00000000
"ProxyServer"="http://0.0.0.0:80"
"ProxyOverride"="<local>" 


Following this modification Internet Explorer will no longer be able to access the internet. It will however, still work for pages saved on your computer and for locations on your local network.

Congratulations, you have just made Windows XP safe for the internet again. Of course the sage admonishment of "Be Careful What You Click" and "Use Protection" still apply.

Finally... The foregoing has been presented for it's potential educational value. You are responsible for the configuration of your own computer. Always know what you are doing before you do it. BlogDogIt cannot be held responsible for any action you take as a result of the information provided by this or any other content presented on its pages or in downloadable material.

Remembering To Care About The Earth

  • Contributed by:

masodo's musings

Iron Eyes CodyIt was GatorWoman reminiscing about her meeting with the legendary "Iron Eyes" Cody [see Walking With The Alligators - Earth Day Memories, then and now~] that got me thinking back to the mid-seventies and anti-pollution campaigns of days gone by.

From Wikipedia:

Cody was widely seen in his "crying chief" role in the "Keep America Beautiful" public service announcement (PSA) in the early 1970s. The environmental commercial showed Cody dressed as a Native American, shedding a tear after trash is thrown from the window of a car and it lands at his feet. The announcer, William Conrad, says: "People start pollution; people can stop it."

As memorable as that "Keep America Beautiful" spot was it was the United States Brewers Association's "Pitch In" campaign that I recall as being one of the most effective or rather affective anti-litter campaigns. It was that infectious "jingle" - written by Steve Karmen  that I recall as becoming a mid-seventies Brainworm.

Give A Hoot! Don't Pollute
Seeing this video again takes me back to those days in May spent at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the days leading up to "The Greatest Spectacle In Racing" - The Indianapolis 500. In the height of the "Pitch In" campaign this song was played at the track with such absurd regularity that many in attendance fell prey to this anti-litter brainwashing and would join the collective hive-mind and sing along every time the PSA was broadcast. It was actually heartwarming to witness so many people joining their voices together in support of a cleaner planet. Even to this day, I cannot stand litter-bugs - coincidence? I think not...

What's A Pentium For?

  • Contributed by:
  • Views: 277
masodo's musings

End of the road for XP?Now that Windows XP is no longer a supported operating system you will find more and more of these older computers being pulled from service simply because it is thought that they are not safe and will bring harm to any network they might be connected to.

Disconnecting your old XP Computers from the network (particularly the internet) is probably good advice. Setting your XP driven computers on the curb is just plain wasteful. These old systems may well have much life left in them - particularly those older tank-built Pentium 4 machines manufactured for business use.

Before parting with your old XP computer think about whether it can be used in a single purpose capacity, also known as a computer kiosk. Is there a single program that the computer could run that might take a burden from your shiny new Windows 7 (or ok 8) computer? Imagine rather than booting-up, logging-in and starting the program; you need only turn on the machine to start the program you need.


Kiosk Mode

Regardless of your reason for running your machine in kiosk mode the key steps are going to be: 1.) disabling the log-in screen and 2.) Changing the default "SHELL" from Microsoft Windows Explorer to the program of your choice.

It is a good idea to first create a restricted user named "Kiosk" and don't even bother giving them a password.

I have already detailed the steps for disabling XP logins in a previous article [See BlogDogIt:
Disable XP Login]

Here are the steps to having your computer go straight to the program of your choice when it first starts up:

Perhaps one of the most used Windows XP applications in the world of business has been the program known as "Solitaire." This is a specialized business app that would be well suited for use on a dedicated machine in an office environment. This example will show how to set up Solitaire to run on start-up. You can apply these steps to your program of choice (PINBALL.EXE perhaps?)
