Pyrotechnics - Honestly...wtf →
The mastermind behind these colorful works of art is Rosemarie Fiore, a New York based artist. Her “Pyrotechnics” series was created by exploding and containing live fireworks under cardboard cylinders and metal cans over paper, resulting in controlled layers of beautifully saturated colors. The process is destructive, chaotic and absolutely amazing!

Ugh, full of fail. I parboiled some potatoes for curry and cut them open to find that the potatoes had gone bad. Now I have a pot full of cooked, spoiled potatoes and no other food in the house and probably no one with whom to go out for dinner because it’s Saturday and all the cool kids have surely already made plans. I need to finish my vis program for next week’s show, but I...
Guess what I did tonight.
I touched Coolio. True story. It’s been an interesting night. Time to relax and write some code. LDX #%00000001 INX INX INX LDY #YOURWOMAN STY floor Ah, but seriously, programmin’ time.
From the vaults of “Oh, oops, I should have posted this back when it happened” comes… this video clip! :) It’s a little snippet of my visuals at the Low Resolution show back in April. Sorry that you can’t see him too well here, but that’s the Mysterious H providing the beautiful tunes. If you’re in Austin, TX, I urge you to check out the next Low...

zenalbatross: Tiny bagels and pots of hot coffee wait patiently on a fold-out table in a a small classroom on the southeast end of New York University campus. It’s an early Saturday morning in late June and most of NYU’s students are on Summer break. But for the group of artists, programmers, hackers and musicians about to gather around that breakfast table, the most important class of the...

RealTime Arts did a writeup on some of this year’s SXSW events. And look who appears among the reviews! The stand-out is Austin local Party Time! Hexcellent!, who generates live visuals using custom software on an original Nintendo Entertainment system. Her minimalist algorithms and grimy television colour palette eclipse the hypersaturated phosphor colours of her peers as she patiently...
There’s a… Jem and the Holograms convention? Ho-ly-crap. I kind of want to go. I can’t even imagine the amazingness of Jem cosplay. I’m a little sad that I’m almost at the end of the Season 2 DVDs. Apparently, the Jem DVDs only go up to the first part of Season 3, and those seem to be hard to find. Luckily, I can pretty much watch these episodes over and over. :)

Lately, I’ve been seeing quite a few articles and books about the young folks. Considering myself to be a member of the young folks camp, I like to read these pieces from time to time. And call me vain or self-absorbed (the authors already do), but I tend to disagree with much of what I read on the matter. Consider the linked article (“From Students, Less Kindness for...

My video game music playlist →
I’m building up a YouTube playlist of video game music to listen to while I’m programming. I thought I’d share the link with y’all, too. Right now, the list contains 88 songs, but I’ll continue to add to it frequently. The songs come from games for the NES, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, SNES, Dreamcast, N64, PS1, PS2, PS3, Gamecube, Gameboy, GBA, DS, arcade, and...
