Black Friday From Underwear? Better Than Doing it on Thursday!

Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS The first snow of the season hit Madison Monday. I actually had to break the shovel out – and Google Glass.

Man – the problems I had with that… I am now a Helpouts mentor – Get help with Podcasting and Wirecast. Finally, want to take a moment to shout out to my Aunt Pat and Uncle Ed who both passed away in the last couple weeks.

Manga Studio EX5, Wacom Intuos Manga Tablet: Computer to Graphics Station

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSI was asked to check out the new version of Manga Studio EX5, but I couldn’t do much with only a mouse. Therefore, I got a Intuos Manga pen-tablet to work with it. The one-two punch helped me create some fun anime and other graphics. Manga Studio EX5 Get the Manga Studio EX 5 at Amazon I wish I had this computer drawing software back when I was drawing my comic “Cybeeks”. Manga Studio EX5 is a great way to create graphic novels, storyboards, logos and a whole bunch more. I haven’t drawn in a while, so I wasn’t going to make many masterpieces. Yet, I really didn’t need to. The software has multiple options and staged 3D characters for you to create a quick image the way you like it. You can also use the 3D models as tracing dummies around your...

2014 Ford Mustang First Drive

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSWhile I was in Tucson, AZ I got to drive the 2014 Ford Mustang V6. I was joined by Todd Cochrane where we both got to drive the car and give our points of view. The Mustang V6 is a 3.5 liter, 2 door coupe. While this is the introductory model Mustang, there are still 305 horses under the hood. Put the pedal to the floor and you can see how you can pass the slow cars easily. The 2014 Mustang V6 has an all leather interior and seats four. It has a good distance of wheelbase (107″ x 81″) so it handles really well. I even tested the vented four-wheel disc brakes on the road and it stopped like a champ. This drive also was recorded via Google Glass. This is the full recording from Glass. Other features include HID headlamps, 6...

The Satellite Has Changed: Interview with Peter Platzer – NanoSatisfi

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSIf I was to ask you to draw a picture of a satellite, would you draw a big bulky device with solar wings? If I was to ask you how much a satellite costs, would you say billions of dollars? Now let me tell you that is all about to change… I got the opportunity to talk with Peter Platzer of NanoSatisfi.com. They are making satellites a little larger than the size of a Rubik cube. Hundreds of these satellites get launched into space and hover over earth without being seen by the naked eye. Best part – they will be able to cover the planet a lot easier than that billion dollar dish. These Satellites are already in space. They keep their orbit, transmitting data back and forth. When they die, the device simply falls back to earth and disintegrated by...

Podcast Microphones: Audio Technica ATR2100 vs. ATR2500

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSThe coolest thing about microphone technology is for under $100 you can get a decent microphone for video recording, podcasting or music. A lot of podcasters have been using the Audio-Technica ATR2100, which I reviewed here. But I just got the ATR2500 model and I am truely impressed with the sound it gives. Therefore, this video is a comparison of these two microphones. Audio-Technica ATR2100 This is a handheld dynamic microphone. The mic is meant to be used by musicians, comedians or anyone that needs to hold the microphone at times. It should be placed only a few inches from your mouth. This is a hybrid microphone – XLR to plug into a mixer and USB to plug straight into the computer. You can plug in both XLR and USB, then record from 2 sources. The ATR2100 has a range of 50-15,000Hz,...

Habitat for Humanity with Ford F150

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSI got to drive some Ford F-150 trucks across Detroit and do it for a cause. Habitat for Humanity builds and repairs houses for those who need a place to live. Being in Detroit, there are a lot of run down areas. We got to visit a couple of them while we were there. Boarded up windows, broken concrete and grass that hasn’t been mowed for a while. I was joined by Judie of Gear Diary as we took our Ford F-150 Lariat across Detroit to the 100th home build. Once there, we unloaded the wood, found out a little more about Habitat for Humanity, visited the location the house will be built and finally came back to Ford. It was a fun experience as we drove across the city. Wood was provided by Home Depot. Thanks to Judie for making the ride...

iStopMotion by Boinx – Create Stop Motion Videos

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSStop motion is an art that some excel in. Claymation and LEGO motion are both types of Stop motion video. Movies like Wallace and Grommet and Chicken Run use this technique. Now you can, too! A couple weeks ago, Boinx software sent me the iStopMotion software to play with on my Mac and iPad. I am not a stop motion expert by any means, but this software made is easy to create my own videos and animated GIFs. Advantages of iStopMotion The ghost images show you where your items were so adjustments can be made. You can load an audio track so the stop motion can sync with it. You can even load in a video to create a stop motion version. Imagine re-creating Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer with this software! You can also put up a chromakey background to put your stop...
