Page Traversals

I've added some new experimental websites at this address. Might try learning javascript and jQuery in the near future; in the meantime I'm having loads of fun with outdated tags like marquee. Did you know that you can make marquees go up or down?!?!?!

Other stuff - writing a post on the power of "conglomerate texts" right now. Sounds overly academic, so I'm trying to keep my explanations approachable (and figure out a better term). I'm also almost done with sound collage album #2, which I will be uploading to my Soundcloud since Megauploads don't last forever... Bonus content will be available on a separate page on my site. It's a lot more sound than I originally planned for, running maybe an hour long.

I've been doing battle with processing because I need to know it, but I can't seem to get OpenCV to work with it. I'm really interested in the environment for webcam/eye tracking stuff - very jealous of some of the things I've seen Jeremy Bailey and Michael Manning accomplishing. I want my AR. :(

Lastly, the zoetrope and other project are steadily approaching completion, although I could be spending more time on them...We shall see.

The Social Media Psalm

Tom and I wrote this on dump today:

tommoody: my blog is my tumblr, i shall not want...
hypothete: it maketh me repost that fancy hipster shot of a girl at a party
tommoody: he leadeth me to the path of foolishness
hypothete: it destroyeth my employability because interviewers always google me first
hypothete: it convinces me to employ search engine optimization for my namesake
hypothete: yea, though I lurk through the chans and crackpot time-cube pages for lulz, I will fear no evil
hypothete: for I am not dumb enough to bait anonymous
tommoody: for hackers will protect me (not)
hypothete: my anonymity and lack of fame comforts me
tommoody: for my proximity to the name of a famous cricket player protects me
hypothete: thou preparest a "block" function to unfriend my enemies
tommoody: thy rod and thy blockage shall comfort me
hypothete: thou anointeth my blog with pageviews and retweets, my bandwidth runneth over
hypothete: surely I will be followed on twitter all the days of my life
hypothete: and I will dwell in the house of Google forever
tommoody: yeah though i walk through the valley of search engines

Disco Grapes


One morning an elderly man was walking on a nearly deserted website. He came upon a boy surrounded by thousands and thousands of gifs. As eagerly as he could, the youngster was picking them up and throwing them back into the internet.
Puzzled, the older man looked at the young boy and asked, "Little boy, what are you doing?"
The youth responded without looking up, "I'm trying to save these gifs, sir."
The old man chuckled aloud, and queried, "Son, there are thousands of gifs and only one of you. What difference can you make?"
Holding a gif in his hand, the boy turned to the man and, gently tossing the gif into the web, said, "It will make a difference to that one!"
