Kyle Hester - Actor, Producer Hard to believe it's been over five years (count 'em 5> 1... 2... 3... 4... 5...!) since I first shared my discovery of the independent film star / producer Kyle Hester. [see:A Day In The Life... Supporting Indie Film] Since then I have made it a point to keep an eye on his storied career.

So[1] I was surfing ROKU and decided to check-in on its YouTube channel. Here I was presented, as my number one suggested video, the following offering by none other than my ol’ cyber-fiend Kyle. I had fourteen minutes to spare so I donated them to "Kyle Hester Land."
                                 
Might I suggest you do the same:

Hungarian Horse Bow Arrow Speed test!!
How fast will an arrow fly?

The following is reprinted from this video's YouTube page:
https://youtu.be/fVG-uCZzRfc


Welcome to Kyle's Film Garage! Todays video is about a passion of mine. Archery!! I will be doing a speed test on my Hungarian Horse bow. Lets shoot this bow and arrow through some stuff to see how powerful a horse bow is!
 You may know me from such films as Zombie With a Shotgun or The Chair horror film with Roddy Piper.
My goal here is to make solar powered films.
Please join my patreon to be a part of the magic. This is the way to keep independent film alive! I will share behind the scenes stuff that you will only find there!

You can also support independent film by watching on Amazon and leaving an awesome review. It all helps with the algorithm!
You can check out Zombie With a Shotgun below. I play a bounty hunter in NewYork City.

If you like dark psychological horror then check out
The Chair! Starring Roddy Piper
I play a sadistic prison guard along side Zach Galligan and Noah Hathaway.
https://www.amazon.com/Chair-Roddy-Pi...

These films are possible because of fan funding!! It would not be possible without you. Thank you for supporting independent film!!!

Up In The Air - Aware

  • Contributed by:
  • Views: 2,802
BlogDogIt

I did not really make any sort of resolution to post more to my blog projects this year. Just the fact that they exist keeps me ever mindful of my desire to build upon those existing structures. I think if I ever tried to develop some sort of posting schedule - which every "how to succeed in blogging" author would stress is a "must" - I would soon find another hobby. I'll admit I really don't want to work that hard; I'd rather wait for inspiration and add to the internet when the mood strikes me. I guess that's the difference between hobby and obsession: one you do for enjoyment the other because you cannot imagine it otherwise.

So - if I may be so colloquial as to begin a sentence thus - I was intending to search the inter-webs for content that might relate to my (Unofficial) Oaklandon Community Blog and in the process discovered (on a map) that the nearby Indianapolis Regional Airport (a.k.a. Mount Comfort Airport) is referred to as MQJ, the 3 letter identifier assigned by the FAA. A search involving this new-found tidbit lead me to an extraordinary internet resource by the name of Flight Aware

 

From https://flightaware.com/about/:
FlightAware is a digital aviation company and operates the world's largest flight tracking and data platform. With global connectivity to every segment of aviation, FlightAware provides over 10,000 aircraft operators and service providers as well as over 13,000,000 passengers with global flight tracking solutions, predictive technology, analytics, and decision-making tools.

The "iFrame" presented here is centered on Mt. Comfort Airport but the source website offers you the ability to investigate any airport you choose. You can see detailed information about every airplane in the sky in real-time. I am truly amazed at this technology and thought this would make an ideal "share" to kick off the new year.

The Air That I Breathe


This song was a major hit for The Hollies in early 1974, reaching number two in the United Kingdom. In the summer of 1974, it reached number six in the United States on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number three on the Adult Contemporary chart. In Canada, the song peaked at number five on the RPM magazine charts. The audio engineering for "The Air That I Breathe" was done by Alan Parsons. In an interview, Parsons noted that Eric Clapton once said that the first note of "The Air That I Breathe" had more soul than anything he'd ever heard. - wikipedia

Back in July I posted a Gigapixel Panorama that was inadvertantly labeled as "Tokyo" when it was in fact the Hong Kong Project.

It turns out there is in fact a Gigapixel Panorama of Tokyo and I am happy to share that here on BlogDogIt too.

Enjoy!

Hong Kong Keyhole

BlogDogIt

In January 2019's Keyhole into Shanghai City, I shared with readers the BIGPIXEL Studio's 195 gigapixel panorama shot featuring Shanghai City.

That post has since gone on to occupy the prestigious position of Number One Most Viewed Article here on BlogDogIt (having registered nearly 33,000 views to date.)

It certainly was a fascinating internet attraction and has offered countless hours of visual exploration to all those who have taken the time. By now however, you have probably seen every square yard of Shanghai City and are asking yourself, "Now what?" ...

Hong Kong!
     
Let's Go...!

Iluminating the Oblivion State

Oblivion State

Space may be the "final frontier" but that does not mean you have to be an astronaut to scratch your exploring itch. You can climb a mountain if you have one handy or tromp off into the woods and attempt to get lost in nature (if she'll have you.) But if exploration is what you crave, take a tip from Dorothy: "If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own backyard..."

BlogDogIt is pleased to shine this (long-overdue) spotlight into the fascinating diversion of Urban Exploration and invite you to experience the Oblivion State. Oblivion State exists as an online forum for like-minded individuals to share their experiences in this most visually stimulating, awe inspiring, often melancholical quest for some really "big game" images.

Wherever humanity attempts to improve their condition the true impact of these endeavors is often best displayed in the urbanized areas their cities and towns. Begin your expedition here in the comfort of your internet browser (no tetanus shot required.) Think about those astounding sights you pass on a daily basis; those of which you have become numb to the beauty they possess. Open your eyes to the Oblivion State... 

Enjoy!

A Case of the Blues.

Summertime from Michel De Meester on Vimeo.

Not long ago the BlogDogIt article "Bitchkoemer and Friends Go to Fano" was inducted into the K+Club (a place of honor for posts that receive over 1000 hits.) This is a story featuring a travelogue wherein three "amigos" take a motorhome on an excursion to Fano for a week of Beach Buggy hijinks in conjunction with the 2009 Fano Kite Festival in Denmark.

Herbie BluesAs I was moving that article to the K+Plus hall of distinction I was devastated to learn that the original website I discovered - that commemorated their trip - had been taken off the air (yes, that is a pun.) I was however, relieved to find the embedded video (hosted on Vimeo) was still available. In the process of investigating this business I found that Michel "Bitchkomer" De Meester had recently added a couple of videos of himself playing saxophone in what appeared to be a dimly lit jazz club. One of these videos (featured above) is of a very respectable jam session among several talented artist coming together to cover the George Gershwin classic - "Summertime"

Harbert GrezelThe video lacked a description and gave no indication of the location or purpose of this performance; if not for the presence of that quarky little leather overnight case, emblazoned with the hand-painted word(s) "HerbieBlues" - situated mid-stage - I might never have learned the identity of the harmonica virtuoso, who was conspicuously absent from his signiture sachel. It was a search on "HerbieBlues" that revealed the hidden world of this most unique performer.

Lucky for you that the hard part is over, all you need do now is click the play buttons on the clips that follow. So prepare to be entertained. If this selection serves to "whet your whistle" click on the HerbieBlues logo below and visit Harbert Grezel's website and get to know this mouth-organ master.

Enjoy!

Cheating Death Via Targeted Reincarnation

Pirating Plants by Peter Tobey

 

My bookshelf has long been home to one of my all-time favorite non-fiction books: "Pirating Plants: The Gardener's Guide to Getting Something for Nothing" (1975 - Tobey Publishing Co.) This is a book I refer to often for both the information it contains as well as the swashbuckling entertainment it provides. In a purely innocent "where are they now" internet search for its author, Peter Tobey, I found myself emerged in some of the most enjoyable internet I have encountered in quite some time.

Author Peter TobeyThanks to his LinkedIn profile, I discover that not only is Peter Toby alive and well (a genuine concern often expressed toward those of my contemporaries who tend to exist mainly in my memory) but find him to be the CEO of an East Coast boutique marketing agency by the name of Fuse & Company. Among the impressive display of clients listed in this companies portfolio section of their website is one aptly (if not redundantly) named "EncoreAgain."

Cheat DeathAfter exploring the highly effective e-commerce solution developed by Fuse & Company for EncoreAgain, I immediately sought and secured permission to share elements of his self-described "Tobey-esque" website with the readers of BlogDogIt and encourage each and every one of you to visit this most unique creation and by all means take full advantage of the "Once in This Lifetime Offer" presented therein (and only hinted at below...)
