Time Traveler discovered in 1928 street video

RickfaceThis has been around for a week or so.  And makes interesting speculation.

Is it a time traveler? 

Could it be Mr. Scott disguised in drag with a cloak covering his engineers tools? 

Or, is it a poor unfortunate gnarled old troll of a woman scarred and bent by the big one of ‘08 just muttering to themselves while clutching the side of their head?

I am no lip reader, but it looks like they briefly turn toward the camera to say, “F’INE, just fine”.

What do YOU think?

If this was so earth shaking to this video production company why is it uploaded only in 420 rez and not HD?

Please feel free to comment.  I would be especially interested in what an accomplished lip reader may make of the mutterings of this strange person.

Autumn 2010 and Nova has been down a week

Nova has been down all this week.  Fortunately the gaming is not tied entirely to Nova.  In tough times like this it is possible to get a good game via BattleLan.  This little LAN utility is a little iffy.  Sometimes it works, and sometimes it does not.  Why this is I do not know.  I am gratified when it does.

Here is a video where they are using BattleLAN to play Need For Speed.

You will notice the tutorial mentions both host and player IP are input into BattleLAN.

Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress.com. This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!

Let us take a minute to see what this editor does.  I may prefer the microcrap blog tool in the new live package.

So far it would be simple to say, I am not terribly thrilled.  No youtube embedded video.  Just upload to a storage bin.

In fact, I would rate this as crap.  For a forty dollar upgrade you can make it expensive crap.  I liked the myspace better. thanks for nothing microsoft.  As always it was worth what I paid for it.

Talking about Ciao Cianos

The new micropoopie video archive thing is semi open.  A novagamer friend was severely bashed up in a car wreck last year.  So, on a lark I put together a get well soon video card.  This was created with old pictures scanned in on a low dollar all in one lexmark printer/scanner and some digital pictures from a variety of family events.  

I’m sorry to say, I forgot exactly what the narration is.  The gist is pretty simple.  Here are some happy people doing happy things.  Hope you get to feeling better soon.  You know the typical get well soon card stuff.

The video was created using  Photo story, Windows movie maker, a bit of original photo cleanup with paintshop pro.  Etc. Etc.  The voice over part was accomplished with photo story 3.  I had not worked with that program before.  This was an interesting experiment with some of the features of the software.

Oh, the background music.  A 1982 song called “Island of lost souls” By Blondie. The singers name is Deborah Harry.

A nova games friend was nearly killed in a car wreck in Italy last year. They are rebreaking bones and the poor kid is really messed up. This is a semi funny collection of pictures with a really bad voice over translation of a greeting from babblefish.The background music is an old favorite from Blondie called Island of lost souls.

Regarding the Condom Reef E-story

Glad you dropped in. 


Hey! if you dropped by from the link in the Condom reef Email.  Let me assure you the ocean is not filling up with used rubbers.



It was just such a weird internet rumor that has been alive for years (1996).  And most recently circulated by Whitley Streiber.  Poor Whitleys source UK online is about as goofy. 


I thought I would pass it around and see if it generated any conversation.


My appologies to anyone who is worried we are being moved offworld by used rubbers for not including the snopes findings along with it. 


Just a small oversite.

Memorial Day a twenty second driveby.

I am making a small addendum to the May blog.
I had just returned from a fabulous lunch at the Golden corral of Steak, shrimp, shrimp scampi, and assorted victuals of a variety far too encompassing to clutter my main thought in this particular blogline.
Memorial Day.  How embarrassing I find it.  Not in the liberal Kennedy/Kerry/Clintonese way as a day of shame over militaristic postulating.
But, I find it personally embarrassing that we have come to do so very little for the remembrance of those who committed the ultimate self sacrifice in the service of this great country.  Its people, ideals, and freedoms.  To preserve those freedoms, ideals and peoples.
On leaving the restaurant I noted a Japanese brand sedan offloading. 
And on the other end of the parking lot, an elderly gentleman carefully opening the doors of his vehicle so as not to damage the other vehicles on adjacent sides.
You may ask, what does this group folk have in common with the humble elderly gentleman in the threadbare outfit.
One simple item came to immediate and glaring obviousness. 
These happy folk were offloading in the last open Handicap parking slot. 
The legless one armed man with the purple heart award sticker on his van was with pride and self reliance dragging his wheelchair out the back hatch with caution to not damage the neighboring vehicles out on the backside end of the parking lot.
It just struck me in that 20 second drive by as the happy people entered the restaurant totally oblivious to anything other than their moment in time.  As I had spent my lunch in oblivious observance of the moment. 
On the drive back, I pondered if I was unpatriotic, or unfeeling, or worse yet ungrateful.  And it occurred to me that in most likelihoods that is what those wonderful folks had in mind.  Their sacrifice would enable those for whom time goes by to do so in oblivious concern to Tyrants, Despots, and Dictators.  Together in a community of national pride spirit in the company of family and friends.
So rationalized, perhaps I did spend memorial day observance in the best way.  A brief reminder, and personal inventory surrounded by friends and family in a happy and free environment.  And I continue, "as time goes by".

May the month of flowers

Here we are at the end of May.
The month has just shot right thru the hour glass. 
Lupe’s Birthday, Bob did a no-show.  Lunch at Casuella’s Mexican restaurant was not bad. Not excellent but not bad.  They seemed to be in an economy trend and only had crap they could pull out of the freezer and nuke up on demand.  Urgh, home made TV dinners (well restaurant made).  Even the chips and salsa were bland.
The lawn even after a virtual bath in chemicals came in this spring with a huge amount of weeds and during that first flush looked like crap.  Over the winter the squirls busy little farmers that they are had planted pecan nuts all over like Easter eggs.  The little snots got in the greenhouse overwinter and now most of the tropicals have pecan saplings coming up out of the pots.  I have orphaned them out to as many places as I possibly could that they may have an oportunity to grow into full trees.  Actually I sort of like pecans.  And if spread out pecan trees do make nice shady spots.
The azaleas are in full bloom and what a color riot they are.  I did not have the oportunity to buzz over to Muskogee this spring for the Azalea Festival there in the park.  That is always a nice day trip.  Start early, haul ass over, take a peek, haul ass back with a camera full of colors.  A walk thru "Whites Garden" is always pleasent.  Especially when the weather is nice.  This year would have been perfect.  68 and sunny on the festival days back in April.
And up to the end of May.  So much to do and so little time to do it in.  StarWars III is in the theatres.  Kingdom of Heaven looks interesting.  I had just sat it out in a cramped theatre with barely padded seats for starwars.  My butt still feels numb.  An action packed movie.  And not exactly what you picture from the teaser.  Overall a dark movie.  But, what the hell I think it was the best one yet.  But, hey they say it is the last one.  And I don’t even believe that for a minute.  Afterall we were forewarned of a return of Liam Neesan from the vapor world.  And Chewy the Wookie has some history to fill in.  Yoda needs to find a goofy little house in swampsville.  Leaha needs to grow up bitchy.  Hey for a half a billion a week I see StarWars 3.1; 3.2; 3.3.
Dad’s Birthday was a quiet event no cake.  Hot doggies, Jodie brought her grandson for lunch.  Happy 72 Dad. Jodie and Liam seemed to have liked the Hotdoggies.
Liam was crabby about leaving.  I think the lad wanted to go back to great grands for some more hotdoggies.
