I don’t care what anyone says, kitten therapy is a thing. Had the worst migraine for two days. Took every pain killer I had, nothing helped. Two minutes with the cat, and I felt 100% better.
My more observant followers are likely asking this very question. Two things currently jump out as odd immediately to anyone who’s even a passing reader of my little corner of the Internet. First, this site is suddenly lacking in virtually all content (in fact, it’s a complete reboot). Second, this post (and in particular the above video) is far from the kind of thing I usually post. Well, there’s a reason for that.
My second colorization attempt! Previously, I told you about the incredibly inefficient process I used in my first colorization, but I didn’t learn anything from it. Well, maybe I learned a little, but I used the same process to color this image of a 1954 Cutlass concept car. I’m not 100% sure where I found this image, but I liked the car, so I thought I’d give it a shot!
Before I begin, I’d like to take a moment and apologize for what passed for a post yesterday. Anyone who’s ever been a victim of migraines can tell you just how difficult they can make it to actually do anything, particularly when it comes to looking at words on a screen. However, I promised I’d get back to the real content today, so here we are!
The following poem was originally penned by Marine Corporal James M Schmidt while stationed at Marine Barracks, Washington, DC.
They say that the two worst things to discuss with friends are religion and politics. Well, I’m officially screwed.
A while back, I started experimenting with recoloring black and white photos. I didn’t have a real reason for it, it just seemed like a fun hobby that would force me to learn something new and make me more proficient with Photoshop. Before I started experimenting I didn’t really do any research. I’m honestly not even sure where I originally got the idea to try recoloring something. In hindsight, I probably should have done at least a little research…
Today hasn’t been what I’d call an over-all winning day, and I’m too fried to come up with an original, coherent post… but that doesn’t mean I can’t write! So today will effectively be a brain dump of things I’ve worked on, realized or discovered today. Consider this fair warning that while you will likely learn something from this post, some of it is likely to be nonsensical at best.
Believe it or not, this is a question that more and more Americans have difficulty answering. The sad truth is that with each passing generation our history is being forgotten, and fewer people even know what it means to be an American.
