20170602 Just reliving a nice memory 160.5mph! Dreamed of doing it and Then DID!

 

As a little boy, I saw Formula 1 racing as the BEST! It was about driving skill and world wide too.

It was not that NASCAR pushing and shoving while driving in circles…

Well, I always wanted to at least just once drive racing fast in an open wheel race car. 2015, Oct. I got that chance. I bought myself 2 drives of 8 minute each.

When the driver’s was held, the instructor said that the cars would only do 150mph in a single or double drive. You would have to buy a 3rd drive to go faster as the governor would set. He hear my groan and and I said I had the dream of doing at least 150mph. He quickly added that if you drove really good you could get to 153mph, but you had to be right on the sweet spot the whole time.

Well, the first 8 minutes I let myself feel into the car, what and where that sweet spot was at.

The 2nd 8 minutes I let it all hang out, it was the ‘QUALIFYING RUN!”

So you might imagine my surprise when I pick up my computer printed certificate and it said I did 160.50mph….

Yeah, I could have had fun being a real race car driver….

Enjoy this video of those 2 runs & the certificate shown at the end!

20170519: Friday Funnies!

Print

Having spent 57 years laughing at people who want to live forever & believe some religion can produce your past in a “new world that never dies so your physical body lasts for ever & ever”…

I have as far back as I can remember used the saying “Born to die.”

After all how long do you think you will like eating chocolate pudding for every meal of every day… Eternity is very long.

I will take the experiences of this life and move on!

20170507 FAKE NEWS, pushing for censorship…

I wrote this piece on Mediumdotcom and I am re-posting myself here, just to continue to spread awareness of why CENSORSHIP IS WRONG…

View story at Medium.com

FAKE NEWS, a push for censorship!

OK, FAKE NEWS… oh my god!

Right, well as a child the GOSSIP COLUMN entertainment magazines were loaded on the supermarkets with fake news.

No one screamed to the kill them crazy publishers!

Now suddenly it is proper for the MASSES to demand that you only allow the “government sponsored” news be told…

Oh course it is the GOVERNMENT SPONSORED News agencies telling you this!

Hum, intelligent minds are curious!

Dumb people want entertainment & cheap food.

“Bread & Circuses” at least 2500 years old and STILL the battle cry of the the apathy now crowd….

If you teach children HOW to THINK, not what to think, you improve the survival of the human species.

If you allow a church/religion to dictate to the government what that government should allow to be taught. You improve the survival of that church/religion, till it KILLS OFF EVERYTHING.

Religions are parasites, they produce nothing produce of value. They demand the highest quality in food, housing and virgins for sacrifice.

In other words they suck the life out you, claiming that you will be “REWARDED AFTER YOU DIE”… what better way to protect the monies you steal than offer a money back guarantee claim-able only AFTER YOU ARE DEAD!

So for thousands of years the world was flat because the religions did not want you to realize the religions were sailing AROUND the world claiming to own it.

How can a world be flat if the explorers sailed east and returned to the starting point and other explorers sailed west and also returned to the starting point.

Illogical behavior to get illogical answers accepted.

So here we are in 2017, governments everywhere have been caught cheating & stealing & robbing the countries blind.

People are pissed, so what happens?

The religions speak out AGAINST INTELLIGENCE…

The religions speak of how it was better when no one heard this voice of opposition!

Religion speak out against anything that does not support it’s person point of view….

Suddenly “FAKE NEWS” is everywhere and a person who can tell the difference is a criminal…

The 4 Bible religions, Jews, Christians, Catholics, Muslims, all created from the same texts, in the same lands on the planet, claim the planet is only a few years old….

WHO IS FAKE NEWS!

Who screams the loudest to remove and CENSOR FAKE NEWS?

Yeah the people who CREATE Fake News…

TRUMPed has been in office for a couple of months now, just passing his 100 day mark…

Campaign speeches of “Draining the Swamp” are now replaced with massive levels of corruption, nepotism, Laws against free speech, laws to protect the 1% ELITE RICH & Wall Street Bankers, putting CEOs of polluting corporations in charge of the government agencies that protect the Middle Class against such actions…

and ANTI WAR….

Is now the the opposite as he LEADS the charge to wars everywhere,

of course I am “FAKE NEWS” because right there in TRUMPed’s financial statements is the stocks…

How dare I have facts….

Notice too the Boeing & HALIBURTON ( USA always sends in the Haliburton to clean up after a war) and many other companies that always PROFIT from USA war games…

And Now TRUMPed wants all “Whistle Blowers” arrested as terrorist…

So the next time you ask for Facebook to CENSOR Fake News, ask yourself, who does Mark represent if he is on a campaign tour across USA, accepted Millions of dollars in agreement to work with USA government to expose “terrorist/criminals”… and block “Fake News” by the governments standards?

The next time you ask someone their opinion, ask yourself, do you want to know what they think? Or do you want to hear them tell you what you want to hear?

Ask yourself if you parent or a boss, how many times have you told someone to “Think for themselves” and then gotten mad or punished them for thinking differently than you?

My 26 year old son knows to this VERY day, he never has to WORRY ABOUT CHALLENGING DAD. It is accepted he has different eyes and sees the world differently.

If he stops thinking for himself, then the feces hits the fans… not because he believes or sees something differently.

How does a industry grow, if everyone does the same thing?

How does a society right it wrongs if only a “Socially acceptable” answer is allowed to be seen?

How is there any medical breakthroughs if no one challenges the “Old way” or stops caring about profits and works for people instead?

I grew up learning to research out the data myself…

I learned to change my mind when the data required it.

I grew needing to THINK FOR MYSELF TO SURVIVE.

Now I am a “Whistle Blower” with a government of my country of birth wanting me dead & my so called “old buddies from school” running away fast because it scares them to think for themselves…

and worse to remember I was right 41 years ago!

So start thinking for yourself…

It is scary sure… but to let the government scare you into selling out your children & friends will be even scary,

specially at night when the Nightmares come…

20170417: ANTIWAR Poster, 45 years of antiwar… still no logic in war!

Knowledge poem 3 pages

1976, wrote the poem, it was about the idea of the PUBLIC MASSES wanting “BREAD & CIRCUSES” to be entertained. They did not want to think about the world as a whole…

Top of page, yeah, I have been put in prison for talking of TRUTH,  I carry a broken shoulder for speaking out against USA corruption.

The Middle East, a constant war for 35 years…. Olie North & Pres. Reagan & Bush Sr. creating the Al Qaeda, just to keep USA Public wanting war…. 1999, I read of the Haliburton/Bush/1% Elite Rich creating the “Never Ending War with a Terrorist attack of  a huge size so the USA citizens would RUN TO WAR”  2 years before the 2001 9/11 attack…

The final comments unfortunately are not so well understood, FUKUSHIMA is killing all life…. there is only about 10 years left. 1975, I did a report on the nuclear industry, I came to the understanding that a major environmental disaster WOULD HAPPEN, too much corruption, too much USA government getting monies for underhanded deals & looking the other way at the nuclear pollution….

Yet the planet in a 100 MILLION YEARS or more, will be ready for new forms to come into existence… I personal hope that the humans will not return in as stupid a arrogant manner. If at all.

AND KEEP IN MIND, 1983 I tried to get the human race to see a different view, BY CREATING the International Space Station….

20170404: Playing like a youngster… Grunge effect.

Print

OK, so people photography is boring to me & all that.

However, I was asked to do some work for a young man & given the image he sent me and the request of turning it into line art.

I sent him back these 2 images… to consider for his posters for sales in his shop.

Print

I did not listen to this man’s music, the image was kind of there in & of it’s self. A musician , a photo that I guess a lot of young people know….

So the Grunge effects, the twisting turning it into some art of his flavor…

Waiting to see what the client thinks.

An old dog that knows a few tricks, an artist that never stops learning, that is me, not in any box because I just ever fit in one.

Creative Shooting/Artistic fun  Folks

20170315: My FIRST Adobe After Effects Creation! So close to what I wanted!

video at the bottom!

20170315 9 Fathoms video screenshot

OK, I started to study ADOBE AFTER EFFECTS in January 2017. I had a conversation with a person about doing a music video. I got a vision of what I wanted to do.

This is the DEMO release of it. I need to go back and adjust the timing of some images and smooth out some motions & transitions.

However, this is about 90% plus of that vision in action. Totally self training here, I have no one to confer with on this. YouTube has supplied me with the training videos and MY own get in there and PLAY around, trial & re-try attempts after attempts….

Enjoy the show folks!
