Twitter / Of The Day

8 02 2009

Since Friday, two “Photo Of The Day” streams have been set up. One is my Chromatically Challenged Father‘s, named iPhone Photo Of The Day, and the other is mine, Random/Abstract Photo Of The Day. Obviously it’s easy to tell what each consists of. iPhone Photo Of The Day is, well, a photo taken each day using an iPhone, and Random/Abstract Photo Of The Day is a random or abstract photo taken each day. Both are on Flickr.

Now for Twitter. I have joined Twitter and am open to followers/people to follow. Why not go and see? Twitter username is jobbogamer if you want to see my profile.

Getting Creative

5 09 2008

Today, I got started using Photoshop CS and Illustrator CS, both by Adobe. Using “real” Photoshop was easier than for some as I have had a bit of experience with Elements. However, I did not know how to use the pen tool because it isn’t included in Elements! I also have no idea what I’m doing in Illustrator. I’ve played around a bit with it, but I still don’t have a clue about any of it. I’m going to look for some tutorials to start getting used to the basics. If you want to learn some Photoshop stuff, check out Bert Monroy’s weekly video – some of the pictures in my Flickr photostream were made using his techniques, but most of them came from How To Cheat In Photoshop Elements (which is actually co-written by my Chromatically Challenged Father).





The YouTube Time Warp

30 08 2008

After being sent a link to a video on YouTube by my Chromatically Challenged Father, which was the song “Toast” by Streetband from the 1970s, and then being guided through other songs by him, I essentially went through the YouTube Time Warp of songs. Starting with “Toast” in the early 70s, we progressed to the late 1970s with Jilted John, then went on to Plastic Bertrand with “Ca Plane Pour Moi” in 1978. Afterwards we jumped ahead to 2008 with the Ting Tings and “Shut Up and Let Me Go”. Finally, we got a taste of the 1980s with “Mickey” by Toni Basil. What a day!

In the evening, we watched Batman Forever (the one with Harvey Two-Face and the Riddler). That was good, especially as I hadn’t seen it before.
