Guest Filming – Shaving Cream

I recently had an opportunity to help a friend film a short sketch about shaving cream. I bought a new microphone hookup to improve my sound recording quality and I’m really impressed with how it turned out. Corey is a spectacularly funny guy. Hopefully we can work together again soon!

Let me know what you think!

Cool Junk: RockBox

This one is really sweet for all you customize to the teeth-er’s out there.

Rockbox is a custom opensource OS for handheld media players. It supports a whole buttload of players including most of the older iPods and a bunch of others I’ve never even heard of.

The interface is easy to navigate and easy to customize with different themes and font sizes and such. It even comes with a bunch of neat little side applications and games (oh god, like I need another place I can play Blackjack). There are lots of cool playback options too, like EQ and crossfading.

Overall Rockbox is a pretty sweet package. I had a bit of trouble with it on my Ipod Classic, but that’s understandable considering that version of the Ipod isn’t fully supported yet.

If you’re looking to spice up your personal media player a bit, go check it out!

Cool Junk: FontStruct

Here’s a neat little site for ya-

Fontstruct is a flash based website that allows you to create your own fonts. It’s pretty cool and has a really easy to use interface. You select different patterns to “paint” onto a grid and you basically just go hard drawing out each letter of the alphabet one by one.

That’s my only real complaint with the site. It would take FOREVER to make any half decent fonts. In fact, it took me almost three hours to make THIS. It would be nice if they had some more guidelines too. My letters got bigger as I went along and then smaller again as I started to notice. It took me so long to get that far that I never bothered to go back and fix them. Screw that. I LIKE THEM THAT WAY.

Perhaps this speaks more of my lack of patience than anything else…

Once you’ve designed your font you are free to download it as a .ttf and use the heck out of it! HOORAY! Overall a pretty neat setup. Definitely worth checking out if your one of those artsy types who likes calligraphy.
