Which Plane Was It?

There was a collision between an airplane picture and a rabid PhotoShop – no one made it out alive, except for a kitten that had fallen asleep back in the luggage compartment.

No Context For You – April 18th

I seem to remember there was some blind celebrity (Ray Charles? Stevie Wonder?) who was actually an accomplished photographer. I try to remember that as inspiration, or at least a bar that’s set fairly low, when I find pictures like this on my phone.

Who Could It Be?

A couple of days ago I posted an odd creation I had made by goofing around with IrfanView, which I was using because I’m slowly setting up a new computer and I hadn’t re-installed Photoshop yet.

That situation was corrected this evening.

To test the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station installation I took something random off of my Twitter feed tonight and started goofing around with it.

But it’s a game – you can play!

Here’s your clue – the original photo contained someone named in a Tom Lehrer song – can you see them and who is it?

For anyone who’s a regular here, I’m not sure if this is as hard as it might appear at first. We’ll see.

No Photoshop!

IMG_2819_edited_small

This is:

a. What I saw in my dreams last night after eating way too much really spicy jambalaya at The Long-Suffering Wife’s birthday dinner

b. What I saw in the mirror this morning when I was awake this morning after eating way too much really spicy jambalaya at The Long-Suffering Wife’s birthday dinner

c. Something bizarre which truly did involve no PhotoShop manipulation – because I haven’t yet re-installed PhotoShop on my new computer so I had to see what IrfanView could do with it

d. A combination of infrared and gamma ray images of Donald Trump’s hair.

e. Art

f. All of the above

Show your work.

Play, June 1st

When in doubt – play!

It’s such a simple concept that we forget so easily. Just spend a few minutes with some software, a camera, a pen & paper, some paint, Legos, or any one of a hundred thousand other things that gave us pleasure as children and ask, “What happens if I do this?”

Adulting would be so much easier and more pleasant if we were better at remembering this. Actually, strike “remembering.” Adulting would be so much easier and more pleasant if we were better at being this.

One Of Those Days

I hate it when you get up in the morning and the sun has been eaten by a black hole and Chtulu and the Elder Gods decide that’s the day they’re going to return! Some days it’s better to just stay in bed.
