What Comes After The Clowns?






I used to use a program called Irfanview for storing and sizing photos, but Comcast seems to be battling me with this, more in the way of cropping photos. So I signed up with Photobucket. I haven't really used it yet, more goofing on it with the special effects in my spare time. I have a fresco of me at the bottom, I'm at Elvis's house in 1992, then there's a heat image of Michael Berryman and his twin, me: The Hills Have Eyes Dude. (Those that do not know that story, please ask). Prior to photobucket, all I could really do was screw around with my scanner as seen with the first two photos.

You can also download the wonderfully named (and free) graphics program GIMP. It'll let you resize your photos to more upload-friendly proportions...

I use photobucket. But never to alter photos. Just to be able to post them easily on websites and blogs.

There's something... disturbing... about seeing you and Michael Berryman in Predator-Vision.

Looks like an outtake from Plan 9 From MySpace.

Heheh, Predator-vision. X-D

Wow, I have to try Photobucket! Also that GIMP thing.

Nice pix.

I really liked Irfanview, but to resize or crop something after the fact, I'd have to email it to myself and then save changes, something I can't seem to do with Comcast. I still have Irf. for my folders, though. Photobucket I've known since I started my blog, I just never started an account, and I'll likely look at Gimp over the weekend, but it is now downloaded, as well.

Capcom and GW, you are the ones who haven't heard the story, but back in the 80s I was waiting for my friend, whose older brother was having a Hallowe'en party. I was wearing a black turtleneck and jacket, some guy walked past and said "Wow, you're The Hills Have Eyes Dude,"refering to the 1979 film, minus The Dude, who of course is The Big Lebowski. Because of that story, I have become very good friends with Michael Berryman, the actual actor.

That's neat! :-D

Wayne, do you have Printkey.exe on your computer? It's a very simple and easy way to capture and save photos. We had it on our IBM computers at work. I think that can send it to you in an email attachment if you want.

Sure, Capcom, you can email that to me. I'll try anything new.
