Santacon LA ’19

The year is slowly coming to an end, and I have one last thing to look forward to before that happens. Santacon. After that for all I care the year can end because I have nothing else that I’m really looking forward to that much. Remember, if you are not around LA, check the Santacon page to see if it’s happening near you, and you can join in there. And remember, it’s not all in the same day is it could be possible to do 2 or 3, depending how close other cities are from you.


Family Portrait

A friend asked me too do a photoshop for him. And timing worked out since I can actually do something again. The whole idea was to place his, and his girlfriend’s head over the couple, and the loaf of garlic bread over the kid.

When I started editing it I thought to myself “I can’t do this. I need new photos of them, or advanced knowledge of a 3D program.” Turned out he just wanted a simple cut and paste job. But because it’s me I didn’t want it to be too simple. So I did the best I could with what I have, in as little time I did.


LA Zombie Walk ’19 – Photos – Part 2

The seconds and last part of the photo set is now online. It was kind of inserting this took place later in the year as usual. Likely the reason it happened was at the time the Zombie Walk happens, LA Comic Con was also that same weekend and it would have created some kind conflict. Well, since LACC will be happening in september next year I don’t think there will be any kind of issue at all.

In the mean time, watch out for the dead.


LA Zombie Walk ’19 – Photos – Part 1

The dead rise again, to walk the blvd of Hollywood, but not before taking the red line from North Hollywood. Glad I’m able to edit again, I really am. But sadly it seems to be getting smaller and smaller every year. I don’t think I did that good a job promoting it because at the time, didn’t have a machine to work with so it makes it a bit more difficult. hopefully next year won’t be as much a problem. But, at least I still got enough photos to split the album.

Not watch the dead bring out themselves.


The Return…

To the World of Warcraft. It’s been so long. I remember last year learning about my old computer that when the new expansion comes out it will no longer be able to run the game because the video card will no longer be supported. My GF let me play some on her computer during times of free game play, but that was pretty much it.

Now I have my own machine again, and with the retina display it makes it beautiful. Well, everything on what I look at is beautiful on this screen. It’s the same size monitor as before, 21.5 inches, but because it’s retina display it has just over 3 times the detail. I’m enjoying this thing too much.


Running of the Clowns ’19

At long last, I can finally upload these photos. That was so painful. Anyways, after looking at them on my, new computer, I found myself kind of upset with how some of them came out, which explains why there are relatively few. That and many of them are almost duplicates.

I was also having some trouble trying to keep ahead of the group to get what photos I needed. I guess I need to do some running again. I could have brought my blades to make things easier but there is also the problem of how little space I have going through some spot.

But in the end, I still pulled it off.


It’s Here…

After months of having no computer, I have one again, and it’s beautiful. A 21.5 inch iMac, like the last one (because I can’t afford a 27 inch), retina display, same size hard drive as before, 1TB, but a fusion drive (which is kind of a hybrid of the old style drive and solid state), and a whole lot more power.

What makes me happiest is the oddest of things. That is doesn’t have the newest version of the Mac OS. The reason is I learned last month that version, will not open any Adobe program before Creative Cloud. That means I can still use CS6, so I won’t have to figure out some hoops to jump through to open it up again. Oh the joy.


Doo Dah Parade ’19

It’s been a long time since I was at the Doo Dah Parade. Ten years ago to be exact, but earlier in the year. It was with SoCal Anon, a group of scientology critics who had a spot in the parade. Scientologists tried to get us kicked out but the officials told them to get lost. We had a good time.

But anywho, Nice little surprise announced since this is related to the Running of the Clowns event from last month. I still have the photos waiting to be edited so once I get my new machine I will finally get to work on them. But for now, get to hold on a little longer.
