Robert Easton: A Thousand Voices You Didn’t Know You Heard

Robert Easton: A Thousand Voices You Didn’t Know You Heard

To begin this story, I first must explain what Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax are. In basic terms, it is a concept where comedians provide a commentary to a movie that makes fun of, or “riffs”, the movie. In the case of Mystery Science Theater 3000 it was a bunch of B-movies, mostly from the 1950s and 1960s. With Rifftrax, it is any movie that strikes their fancy. You just download the audio file and sync it to your DVD. This story begins with the Rifftrax version of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. In this movie we find Captain Kirk […]

Star Citizen Parallax Effect

Putting a spin on static in-game screenshots, this video is a 4k compilation of four parallax effect clips I created using in-game screenshots from Star Citizen Alpha 2.6. These use a technique commonly called “Parallax Scrolling” which: “is a technique in computer graphics and web design, where background images move by the camera slower than foreground images, creating an illusion of depth in a 2D scene and adding to the immersion. The technique grew out of the multiplane camera technique used in traditional animation since the 1930s.” Each scene uses anywhere from four to eight different in-game screenshots specifically taken for […]

50 Years Later, and Monterey Pop is Still a Seminal Event

50 Years Later, and Monterey Pop is Still a Seminal Event

This weekend marks the 50th Anniversary of the seminal event, the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 in Monterey, California. Monterey Pop is considered by many music historians to be the first modern rock festival. It was the first time pop music (what we would come to call rock by the 1980s) was so big it received its own dedicated venue for a weekend. The fairgrounds alone held up to 9,000 audience members – something only eclipsed by The Beatles and Elvis in arenas at that point. Estimates range from a minimum of 25,000 to over 90,000 people were in the […]

Beyond Good and Evil 2 – Competition for Star Citizen?

Beyond Good and Evil 2 – Competition for Star Citizen?

An unlikely competitor has emerged! One of the most fun filled and exciting previews out of E3 was Beyond Good and Evil 2! Not having played the first one, I have no idea what is happening with this story line, but if the in-game action comes anything close to what the this promotional video shows, then this game is going to be a lot of fun! So what does this have to do with Star Citizen you ask? Nothing! Except that we have yet another game promising seamless transitions from the surface of a planet into space, and back down to […]

New Logitech pad will charge your mouse!

New Logitech pad will charge your mouse!

It is one of those “why was this not a thing before?” type moments. It makes perfect sense, your mouse pad doubles as a charging pad for your wireless mouse! The new technology dubbed “Powerplay” allows you to always have your mouse fully charged as long as it is on the pad. Since your mouse will never leave the pad unless you dog gets a hold of it, gone are the days of having to stop in the middle of a game to replace the batteries or hook up the cable to charge up the mouse. Logitech claims they spent […]
