new year

So hey, it's 2009 now. 

I took a bit of a blogging hiatus over the holidays, but now that I've had time to properly survey the damage, clean up the bottles, and find my other shoe, I can safely say it's about time I started showing this blog some proper love again. And much like those tv infomercials you find yourself unable to turn away from despite it being 2am and needing to pee like a racehorse, there's more... There will be some bonus features popping up in the coming posts. I'm not even going to make you work for them. Because I'm just that nice.

Watch as I make things move before your very eyes! I'm learning Flash amongst other things, so I'll try to post some of these experiments with the sole purpose of making myself laugh.

With the help of friends, the internet, and the metal plate in my head, I've found and been exposed to some great little programs, devices, and apps that are great tools for creatively goofing off. My technology: let me show you it.

There's been some interest in how I go about making the stuff on this blog. I don't claim to know what I'm doing. Let's just get that out of the way right off. However, I'll gladly share my processes and experimentations as best I can with in-progress pics and completely-made-up-techniques-with-cool-sounding-but-blatantly-fake-names.

Sometimes I buy things that make me geek out (rapid speech, dilated pupils, strange sounds, and small dance movements). It could be a book, a game, a movie, or some music that sets me off creatively. And... if I think it's cool, shouldn't you too?

Links and things, silly stuff...that kind of thing. Like this or maybe even this.

So that's that. Let's go have some fun.
