While the above is apparently a painting, it’s still amazingly ace. I like to take 360 photos and videos, and they are basically limited to the realm of the internetz and computer. Thanks to the amazing people on that reddit thread, I am able to shell out hundreds of dollars for one of my own actual photos on a sphere though. I could use Scandy Sphere and spend $500 on one, or Snapsphere which is at least $150, but I can’t seem to find pricing on a custom one. Lastly there’s the DIY route with this video you can follow. What is very clearly missing however is the ability to print out your sphere on paper like that. The linked site is all in Japanese, I have no idea if you can order something or not. Oh well, it seems like I’ll be regulated to viewing them all on my computer for the time being.
December 7th, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The world changed that day. Mostly for the better but everyone now-a-days is up in arms about what could have and should have been. Today is not the day to talk about could haves, it’s a day to remember the loss of life and the way our nation, and the world’s life changed forever. The Attack on Pearl Harbor changed things, but it set about a series of events that led to today. And today you an I are reading this blog, and watching other world events happening in front of our eyes. Had things been different who knows what would have happened, but today is a day of Infamy.
It has been a long time since I have posted here. Not quite as long as previous disappearances, though long enough. You should be excited to know that married life is wonderful and ya’ll should take part in it. Also, New Zealand is an amazing country, and despite loosing our luggage, our honeymoon was fantastic!
Below I’m going to give you some first hand photos of this trip, but you can find all of them and more at the New Zealand trip page. Though if all you’re interested in is photos, then you probably will be fine checking out the New Zealand Collection.
Check out the awesome photos below though:
Now I’m off to New Zealand on my honeymoon. Again, I don’t know who reads this, but I thought you should know. It’s kinda funny though, all the things that I have to do this month, and it just might end up being the most popular month post wise!
I’m not sure who still reads this blog, but I just thought you should all know.
Sadly I haven’t had a chance to play this as often or as much as I once used to. But this song is apt and describes some of the most fun times I’ve had in my young adult life. I probably spent a few years of my life playing games of Halo with people young and old, men and women (though, really mostly men), and near and far. It’s hard to describe how big of an influence Halo was on the world of gaming, it’s sort of like Super Mario Bros. Halo 3 was my favorite of the series and easily the one I spent the most time in. To this day I still play around in it, but I’m rusty, very rusty, and more easily frustrated and prone to controller throwing. Anyway, Halo 3 came out 12 years ago today, fire up a game and enjoy.
Can you believe that it’s been eighteen years since that faithful morning when the world stopped? Eighteen years. There are teenagers alive now who you can have an adult conversation with who weren’t alive when it happened. There are young adults who were still in diapers when it happened. It was a terrible event, but it will not be forgotten. The world might have changed significantly since that faithful morning, but we should always remember the time right after it when we as a country were united together. We must go back to those times and we will realize that we can make it through anything.
Today marks the 80th year since the bloodiest war in the history of man. Early in the day, Hitler’s Nazi Germany invaded Poland setting off the spark of events that spiraled into World War II. It’s bee sugar coated, it’s been glorified, it’s been everything under the sun, but at the end of the day, it was a war. A terrible war with atrocities all over the place. Terrible things happened, and terrible scars are still healing all over the world.
Thankfully we’ve lived in relative peace for the last 80 years, let us hope that it remains that way for further generations to come.
My fiancee was showing me something the other day. It was a video that she loved in her younger days of the internet. Before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, reddit, all of those things. Back when you had to actually search for quality (or lack of) humor on the internetz. Many hours were spent stumbling around the internet looking for things, and finding things. I can’t remember where exactly I first saw the video, and I know I posted about it before but I can’t find it. Anyway, I had to show her the infamous Benny Lava.
Benny Lava is superior to whatever you might be thinking. It’s a classic internet video. It’s not necessarily as wide spread as The Ultimate Showdown, but it’s far more known than Electronik Supersonik which I also had to show her:
Yes nostalgia and the internet go hand in hand. It’s almost like the internet was made for it.
Anyway, I’ve posted the above videos again because they are amazing and you have to watch them.
