Playing with DMesh

So I downloaded DMesh.

It basically converts your images to triangles.

BUT, it also lets you put your own vertices on the image.

Micro USB to HDMI Adaptor WORKS with my LG G4

Pardon the crappy pic; my good camera is my phone.
So I bought this thing a while ago, to see if it would work with any of my smartphones.


So I put it away for a while, not thinking about it.

Eventually I got a new smartphone; the LG G4. On a whim, i plugged it in. It worked!

Nexus 6 going on SALE for $350 bucks for 32GB

SO... next week Google is going to release their new Nexus phones.

What is Amazon to do with their stocks of their "now obsolete" Nexus 6 handsets?

I'm an Animator that can't draw; is that so bad?

So yes. I have done a few animations. The hardest part of animating, for me is...

Candy Cane Flavored Soda: Is it as BAD as you think?

Hey, at least it's Pure Cane Sugar....
I am not much of a soda drinker. If I'm going to get bloated with empty calories, I'd rather get a buzz while I'm at it. However, while buying sodas for the family, I spotted this eyecatcher; Candy Cane flavored soda.

"Dear god, technology has gone too far", I thought. 

Of course, being one that is intrigued by abominations that should never see the light of day, I bought it.

Did your Play/Pause buttons stop working on your computer?

Dammit, computer....
So, here at my job, I have a Mac, and I play my Buckethead music through iTunes, much to the chagrin of my office mate.

I'll make you a Buckethead fan yet, Roommate!
However, lately, whenever I try to mute my music whenever someone walks into my office to ask me a question, my F8/Pause button does not work anymore! I wondered what was going on, and did some research.

I remembered that I had just updated my Google Play App on my Chrome Browser. I upgraded because it allows you to upload music to your Google Play account through your browser. Which is great, because I change my iTunes app a lot, and Play keeps EVERY DIFFERENT VERSION of a song I have... but that is another story.

What I FOUND, though, is that the Google Play app takes advantage of those very same media keys, so you can, for example, play and pause music playing on your browser through Google Play.

Nice, EXCEPT for one thing; it makes the shortcuts GLOBAL. Which means those shortcuts only work for Google Play. Therefore, it takes away the media keys functionality for iTunes, or any other music application you may be using the media keys for!

However, there is a rather easy way to fix and/or tweak that.

Infinity Watermelon

The look on its face looks... sad.

Deadpool: Too Kawaii

My Next Tattoo

So, supposedly Kwaii is japanese for "cute".

Sugoi supposedly means "Please punch me in the crotch."

The Medium Doesn't Matter! (animation)

Used after effects to import all the 4K images I exported from Flash and to sync the audio, then exported it using the 2160P YouTube setting in Adobe Encoder.

I got the comic strip from I used the images to create the animated characters by tracing them in Flash. I, of course, had to take some creative liberties, especially with mouth shapes and the walking cycle.

Then Taylor, from, recorded the audio with his voice, as well as Jay, from

I got the audio, put it in the Flash timeline, and created the following animation.

Why? Just to see if I still can. It is MUCH easier when somebody else does the audio for me. Heck, it's a lot easier if someone else does the DRAWING for me; I'm pretty ok when it comes to staying on spec.
