Wouldn’t this be clearer if they said something more like:
There will be no B D F M service at [the following] 6 stations: …

vs. 

There will be no B D F M service at 6 Av stations: …

Especially since there is a station at 6 Av?!

Tetris Battle on Facebook or tetrisfriends is one of my favorite ways to begin my day.  I liken it to a cup of coffee…it gets me going mentally.  This was video was from when I played earlier today at Rank 69 (Master) - [I am currently Rank 71 (Grandmaster)] :)

Having said this, I was shocked to see that the person I played was not that good at all even at this level…He probably pays for all the goodies that protect your score even when you keep losing (e.g. the battle armor).

Video is best played at 8x speed.

Also, I should note that I thoroughly enjoy the Lunar New Year theme that Tetris Battle unveiled today!

Enjoy!

Is it possible to find someone to listen to and/or Shazaam every song that I have in my iTunes from Unknown Artist/(generic) Track 01…##??

I thought this was amusing…he looks like a puppet Marionette dancing on purpose :) 

The karaoke midi sounding version of Buster Pointdexter is an added treat!

Maya Fluid Effects Test and Understanding the Artist

Today, while I was experimenting with CG fire using Maya Fluid Effects, I thought I had reached a result I was happy with, but when I rendered the image there was a noticeable and non-intentional large glowing sphere around the flame.  

With Glowing Sphere:

Without Glowing Sphere (Fluid Shape shading opacity adjusted):

I wondered if the glow was as noticeable to others or if it could maybe pass as something intentional and showed it to Matt, a 3D Animator/Effects artist.  He noticed and was like, “What’s up with that glow?”  

As soon as he said that, the bullshit instantly flowed out of my mouth.  I tried to explain that the sphere represents energy and/or the fire’s aura and was a way to illustrate the fire’s burning desire to break away and become unruly, while at the same time being contained by this sphere of control, etc. etc…

Matt knows me well and in response to my explanation sent me a link to Michael Muelhaupt’s artwork.  

I have attached Michael’s, “Empirical definition of radical growth,” below…

Translation: I only had a week to complete something to show so I turned a table on its side and glued a tree stump to it…

P.S. I will post a video of the fire as soon as it is done rendering.
