Table Top Setup

With a camera positioned overhead I put together a Recesky Twin Lens Reflex Camera from a kit. One hour and thirty-six minutes have been compressed into nine minutes. Ambient sounds have been replaced with Benefit_of_the_Boomerang-[null_void_manifesto] - "At The Words End."

The instructions were just about adequate and ultimately resulted in a perfectly usable piece of equipment. The proof of which will be forthcoming.

Made in China - Assembled in the U.S.A.

Thanks Bro' for the project!

Steamation V1

Ralph Bakshi has nothing to fear.

Explanation: I have been sitting on several little video clips that I shot at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry a while back. I have converted this one into an animated GIF. As I reduced this video to its basic elements (frame-by-frame in Photoshop) I was reminded of some of the techniques used in the animation classic Wizards.

The BouncerToday I built my first MEME candidate.

It is built upon one of my biggest internet related pet-peeves. Whenever I visit a website that immediately pops-up an invite for me to like them, share them, follow them, take a survey or any other maneuver that suggests that I am nothing more than a statistic to them I am out of there. I don't care if I can dismiss the prompt, I simply close the tab. You should always be careful what you click when surfing the net and if in doubt closing the tab is always the best option.

No Brainer.

Now Fly My MEME... Be Free!

Speaking Like a Politician

Forked ToungeThe phrase "speak with a forked tongue" means to deliberately say one thing and mean another. To "speak like a politician" is a much higher form of deception. It is the difference between being "lied to" and being "misled."

Our good mate Creaky
over on Codgertation presents an article  that he calls "Nothing is as it seems." In that post he shares the following tale. Please take the time to read this little story and see if you can wrap your head around what I am calling "politicians logic." The next time a politician opens his/her mouth - even if you do not see the obvious forked tounge - beware: words mean things.


Nothing is as it seems.

Three lovely old ladies, good friends thrown together by circumstance and now sharing a house, decided they liked a vase they’d seen in a second hand shop window. It would brighten up their dining room. It was just £30 but their pensions weren’t huge. However, they decided they’d each chip-in with £10, so they saved up over a few weeks and eventually had enough in the kitty.

Money in their purses, off they set one Saturday morning and to their relief the vase was still there. Without any further ado, they paid the nice lad in the shop and set off home with it.

Just seconds after they’d left the shop manager came out from the office where he’d been doing a rough-and-ready stock check and said to the lad, “let’s mark that vase down to £25, it’s been hanging around for ages and it’s never going to sell.” The lad said he’d just that minute sold it to three old ladies. The manager, without a moment’s hesitation, told him to run after them and give them five pounds back – “it’s only fair”, he said.

So the lad grabbed five pounds out of the till and ran after the ladies. But while he was nice enough, he was also a crafty one, and when he caught up with them he gave them back just one pound each and kept two pounds for himself. “Well,” he reasoned, “they’re still going to be happy.”

So that meant the three old ladies paid £9 each. Three multiplied by nine is twenty-seven. The lad kept two pounds for himself. Twenty-seven plus two is twenty-nine. Where did the other pound go?

Nothing is as it seems.

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...

Click the DVD Cover Above to See That Movies' GIF Set

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:;)]
