postheadericon Chess With Friends

I downloaded the Chess With Friends app, but since none of my friends play chess, it's more like Chess With Randos. Nevertheless, it has been a goldmine of hilarious games. Here is one where I trolled with the Evans Gambit

postheadericon Haute Pooch-ure?

Okay that barely made sense but Lanvin and Givenchy are featuring dogs this fall, although the Lanvin dog looks much more cuddly.

My attempt at a cinemagraph. This was my first time working with a GIF (seriously though, what non-forum troll purpose do they have?) so I kind of messed it up. I shot this at 30 fps, whereas GIFs should be much lower - around 5-10. The resulting file size was so huge I had to lower the quality considerably to get it to play.

At any (frame) rate, it is a very cool technique that I'm going to try more in the future.

Blah blah blah pretentious black and white photo. Whatever.

postheadericon Limitless

 The Social Network and Limitless have taught me quite a few things about intelligent people: they like wearing collared shirts, they talk too quickly, and they are irresistible to women when they are successful and hopeless losers when they are not. Also they like talking about algorithms.

postheadericon Pre-Prey Info


The Certain Prey shooting begins tomorrow! Having TV shows and movies filmed at the Thompson is obviously a bit of an inconvenience - what with the road blockages, bright lights, and teamsters yelling swears at all hours of the day - but it's all worth it if it contributes to Toronto's cultural capital, right?

postheadericon ... And Heavy-D Up in the Limousine

The store in the background is called "Salt & Pepper" and all the cars are either black or white? Madness.

Quickly: which shot is of the front and which shot is of the back? Exactly.

postheadericon CSI: Toronto

So a guy came into the subway with absurdly large shoes. So large in fact that I had to take a picture. Unfortunately the iPhone’s extremely wide angle lens skews the perspective of the picture considerably – although still large in the picture, the shoes were much larger in real life. Without the picture, there is no way for me to convey how hilariously massive this individual’s shoes were… or is there?

postheadericon Adobe Technology Sneaks 2011: Warp Stabilizer for AE

Pretty awesome. Unmentioned seems to be some sort of Content-Aware technology for the edges in place of motion tiling/repeating edge pixels. That's huge! Not just for stabilization but for camera shake, camera moves, and I'm sure some other things too.

Finally an accessory that meets the needs of those with shiny foreheads. However, I'm not sure how much UVA/UVB protection is provided by holes in plastic.

postheadericon Creepy? Hilarious? Awesome.

At least it looks warm..
