Interesting views of Light

0

This is a pretty interesting experiment in art and light from Akinori Goto.  The short video below shows the process. It’s neat, sort of a modern version of the Zoetrope.  This wouldn’t be possible without 3-D printing.  Or at the very least, it would be insanely difficult to construct. This next video shows a much more … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: Blackness

0

Common American folklore states that Thanksgiving was when the Indians helped the pilgrims from the Mayflower survive the winter.  This is mostly true, however, the real history can be traced back to the colonists from Roanoke.  They are the reason why this feast is celebrated, though not for what you would think.  Read on, for a … Continued

Cuyahoga Valley NP

0

Cuyahoga Valley National Park is located right outside of Cleveland Ohio, and unlike Niagara Falls, is actually directly on the way to Chicago.  So I’m totally going to being stopping there as I make my way across the nation for Thanksgiving. It’s sorta like Vacation, except, it’s not going to be as crazy, or dangerous, … Continued

Who Built America

I might be 4 years past due here, but this series has been extremely fun to watch. It’s also been a learning experience.  You know, back to the basics of The History Channel.  Before it turned into shitty reality TV and half-baked conspiracy theories. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good conspiracy theory, and … Continued

Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day.  It’s important to remember all the causalities of our nation’s 240 year history.  Originally, this day was set to mark the end of The Great War.  However, over time, the USA changed it to honor all veterans of the United States Armed Forces.

Make Strange Music

The world of music is a strange one.  I’ll never fully understand it to be honest.  Don’t get me wrong, I like a good melody, and a good piano ballad, but I cannot comprehend some of the dedication given to things I can’t hear, and never will be. All that being said, here is a … Continued

Geode Skulls

0

I gotta say, these things look so ace.  The skills and craftsmanship that is necessary to carve them are amazing.  It’s also important to find geodes that are large enough to get a fully sized skull out of them.  Well, maybe not exactly life-sized.  But larger than a keychain anyway. As you can expect though, … Continued

DIY CNC

0

  Technically this is a computer numerical controlled machine, though it’s not the same thing that most people think of when they hear CNC Machine.  It looks pretty easy to build.  There’s not much to it.  Anyone remotely interested in computers has a plethora of old unused optical drives that they can re-purpose.  I’m not … Continued

Secrets of Super Mario 64

0

With the advent of emulators, and being able to mess around with the underlying game code we’re able to learn all sorts of new interesting stuff about games.  I also find it interesting that people spend the time to dissect the game to find these little inconsistencies. One such person is YouTube user UncommentatedPannen, he’s … Continued

A photo posted by Stephen G (@lord.xeon) on Oct 23, 2016 at 4:10pm PDT The Ranges fly a blimp around the inside of the Garden during the intermissions. I didn’t see it drop anything, though other people have said other teams have done similar things and it would drop raffle tickets, or give-aways and stuff. … Continued
