"I'm Stuck on Band-Aid Brand"

You know that commercial?


Its Experimental 3D!

Or, as I like to call it, AWESOME.

Bored I was today, so I decided to "make" some 3D images.
Its quite "simple" actually, you just need a camera and, say, photoshop elements.

What I did is I took two pictures of one subject, one photo at a **slightly** different angle.
Stress on the slightly.
You put the two pictures on top of each other in layers, then "file, save for web" and animate the two.
See, whats supposed to happen is that rapidly switching the views SHOULD create a 3D illusion, I've seen it done somewhere else... Forgot the web address so you'll have to find that yourself ;)

Here are my experiments:
Experiment 1
Experiment 2

And finally, the "best" one:
Experiment 3

I know, I know, Experiment 1 and 2 look like I just had a seizure after drinking 20 Cans of Red Bull -- Which is only a half-truth.

I know Geoffrey's going to either try this himself or flame me, but knowing him, now that I gave the options he'll find something else to do.
Jimmy, get into the bomb shelter.

Ode to Ctrl + Z

Today, I'd like to honor a "behind-the-scenes" hero:
Control and Z
Together they have helped us from undo's and...
Undoing stuff.
I'd like to say that they have always been there when I f%#k up, which is often.
They have been there to help me whenever I make a bunch of particularly minor however very unsightly errors.
Control and Z have won a place deep inside my harddrive, and today, I would like for it to be downloaded into small flash cards and drive to be sent to everyone else's harddrives, so everyone may feel as I do, about Control Z.

On a furthur note, I'd like this title to be stretched into "Up yours, Control Y," as I really don't need to redo a mistake.


Just to point out the obvious, I redid the ABoE (ha ha funny acronym) blog header-type thing, in case you haven't figured it out for yourself.

Bush has a Banana Phone!

Its been a rather busy day, made two movies.
Well this one is perhaps my best so far-- basically its bush singing along to the song "Banana phone" by Raffi.

Just sit back and enjoy ;)

Laundry Day - Stopmotion Movie

Simply enough, a stopmotion captured only by me...
My sister didn't want to sit there for a few hours and click cameras, so I had to use the timer feature.
Apologies for any mistakes or stuff, but however short it is, enjoy.

Took around 3-4 Hours to make
Approx 350 Frames/Pictures taken
2 People annoyed
1 Donut Eaten

And the answer is yes. I can get that bored.

Having Fun with Rings

I love rings - Onion Rings, Gold Rings (Shiny) and especially, the movie THE ring.
Great because it arrived unexpectedly from Netflix.
So, even after telling my mother and sister how scary it was, they still thought it was a good idea to watch it.
Probably not a good idea though -- the last time my sister watched a scary movie (The Mummy) she believed that there was a mummy following her and would eventually kill her.
She kept it up for months O.o

When we began to watch the movie, I said I'd go get some popcorn...but instead got my mom's phone.  >=)

Oh, and popcorn -- popcorn is tasty.
Well anyways, we watched the movie through until we got to the phone ringin' scene.
As soon as the Ring Video was over, I started dialing.
Unfortunately, I found that there wasn't any connection/bars.

However, as soon as the phone in the movie rang, one bar went up and Guess What : Our phone rang at the SAME TIME.

Of course, I scare the %&#$ out of them, and it was REALLY, REALLY funny.
Probably not funny to my sister, as now she's too scared to watch tv o.O
Even after I told her that it was me who just called...

Better for her I guess.

On a side note, we went shopping yesterday and guess what we found --
Lactose-Free Ice Cream :D
Ice cream, Ice cream...
Or as Fergie might spell it,

Betrayed the Cause

Unfortunately, my vegetarianism streak(not really) has ended already D:
I had gone to lunch at phil's pete za, and I had to order a sandwich as I can't eat pizza(Lactose-intolerance suckssss).
lo and behold, It had pizza on it. Great.
Did I type that? Sorry, I meant Turkey.

Because turkey is a type of meat from a bird of the crazzzy turky variety.
It tasted good though...

Dang. I can't believe its over so quickly.
I'm going to stop eating meats though...

Heh... My bad?
I can just imagine Geoffrey coming up to me and yelling,
Edwin, you betrayed the cause!

Mike would say,
"Eat more meet punk"

and Matt would just say,
"Shh, I'm busy playing Go"


Because my family isn't that exciting or something like that, I decided to go to a sleepover at my friend's house...
Specifically Matt's.

Hi Matt!

Well anyways, we watched this youtube video over and over...
Something called "Pwned" by Duke Nukem.
Link's Here= http://youtube.com/watch?v=VLIqwdEFWt8
Well I dunno why, but he repeats the same 5 phrases over and over again, and its actually kind of funny.
Actually, it was hilarious -- We laughed our asses off.

"I've got balls of steel"
"Blow it out your ass"
"Eat shit and die"
"I'm going to rip off your head and shit down your neck"
"I'm going to kick ass and chew bubble gum -- and I'm all out of gum."

Erm, pardon the awkward sayings, but thats basically all he says.
Seriously though.
You should go watch it.
If you don't like it, sue me.
If you're going to sue me, uhh
Don't sue me please 0:)


Well now I woke up like an hour ago, and I'm at the library typing away on this compooter. Matt's getting tutored in the maths and his bro' is getting tutored by his mom.

And nothing is happening to me right now, except for the fact that I'm typing.
Here in the library.
On the compooter.

Well have a nice day -- enjoy your summer while it lasts.
Oh, and to Geoffrey + such out there, I quit RS for real.

I decided to be vegetarian today.
Well, I'm under the impression that I'm running out of things to blog about, as well as the fact I actually think its healthier if I stop eating meat...
You know, being that meat comes from living, breathing animals like ourselves. It just -- *shudders*

Moving on, I had just gone to lunch with my grandparents (and parents) to some place called like "Royal Buffet."
I don't know what really urges them to go to these "buffets," even though there was a perfectly good Applebee's right next to it.

I picked vegetables (which weren't so great, I think they deep-fried them) and some random noodly-rice things. My parents, grandparents, and my sister however, piled up on meat goods, which made up at least 92% of all the foods...

Arguably, you might as well say that what I had was much, much healthier.

Of course thats really not what matters at this point.
They shalt continue eating those animal parts.
Good ol' animal chunks.

New Hotness

I just got back from seeing Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix or something like that.
My sister didn't understand the movie at all... She couldn't follow a plot if it took on the shape of Michael Jackson and stalked her for her.
Well turns out my sister managed to establish AGAIN that she cannot read despite her age *sigh* and thought the movie time of 3:30 was actually 2:45. Good Job, I say.
So during that time we waited, I got my hair cut.
Sucks 'cause my long hairs has been ripped from my head =[
I'll put up a picture...

As you may be able to see, My hair is significantly shorter >_>
Not that it actually matters in any sense, but it does strike me odd, you see.

I've been accustomed to having long hair so... In public I frequently shake my head side to side...Which is normal when my hair is long.
So uhh.
I Don't even know why I even bothered posting this freaking thing :S

Ah well, I mind as well do horrible things to myself so I have more things to blog about.

3 Weeks and Still Nothing...

Sup Guys.
I had just spent 3 weeks writing on little sheets of paper for an unknown reason, over 2,300 miles away from my own home, thanks to my instructor.
What made it better is that I spent a couple thousand dollars for a guy to tell me what to write on that piece of paper.

Now, I'm sure you'd ask, "Where did you dissapear off to for 3 weeks?"
I have a question too.
Are you a child predator?

Yeah. I mean, no, I'm not a child predator. Well then. 
You see, I really can't answer a question like that, unless I am actually that stupid.
Which I'm totally not.
At all.

It actually feels good to be back on my blog for once, as I keep on ditching it for weeks on end...
I met a coupla' kids at the camp-- Place I went to for 3 weeks, and I had spent a couple dozen minutes rounding the names up and adding them to my gmail account.

Problem is, some people have neat handwriting and some people have sloppy handwriting.
For a nerd-camp, I was surprised at how many illegible words people can write.
It also are weird how many peoples stinks at grammarr.

Its been a good time though, I may show this blog to Chase, I'm talking with him on AIM.

Hi Chase!

And Elly might come back to read so

Hi Elly!

And thus concludes my ramblings of the day, enjoy the rest of the day.
In misery.
Not that you can enjoy misery, since misery is defined as something you don't enjoy so...
I Have to stop talking.
