Check out the video for a full unboxing and initial impression of the Toshiba Thrive tablet.
There was a period of time in the mid-late 1990s that every girl dressed like this. Even the most well-to-do family had their GOTHIC daughter. Oh, the horror! One too many Tim Burton movies and far too many trips to the Hot Topic at the local mall.
This drawing was originally done with a pen on a notepad. It was then imported to Autodesk Sketchbook Mobile for coloring. I was really impressed with Sketchbook because it allowed me to color in layers and then export as a Photoshop PSD file. Best $0.99 I ever spent for an Android application.
If you searched my car right now, you would find at least two RATT cds. Amazing band. If I had to name my absolute favorite band from the 1980s, it would have to be RATT. They’ve remained consistent and their most recent album “Infestation” is probably their best album. Anyway, Jon Bon Jovi actually sang background vocals on RATT’s “Heads I Win, Tails You Lose” off their “Detonator” album. Interesting fact.
If you want to laugh hysterically, check out. Lindsay’s brother Mike told me about it. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. The turtles deserve to this kind of attention because they’re really one of the more creative concepts to come from my childhood. I can still remember all of the parents trying to say “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. Anyone my age remembers going to the local arcade and playing the massive 4-player Turtles game.
After finishing up at McGinnis Pond, I walked down the street to get some shots of passing cars and motorcycles. I was just finishing up my lens and camera adjustments when a classic Pontiac GTO flew by me. The shot was underexposed, but I shot RAW and later adjusted the exposure in Adobe Lightroom.
Sometimes a great shot is just a happy accident. If I spent 30 seconds more photographing the pond, I would have never taken this shot of the car.
