Brought home 2592 photos from the Grand Prix today, not to mention the two or three hundred I deleted in the field. This could take some time to sift through.
I wish digital cameras would have PAISM instead of PASM modes. The I setting would allow manual and shutter, but allow floating auto-ISO. (Many can do this but it's combined with M and that's annoying.)
Paraphrased conversation today after unexpected phone call to John Krakauer. Me: Hey Kat, did you hear? Pixar is going to visit us! Kat Mac: Wait, really? Cool! Me: In twenty minutes! Kat: ... What. Followed by emergency preparations. So yeah, had four Pixar people in the office today and demoed our work to them. They liked it! It has been an interesting day.
"YOU DON'T BUY AN AMP FOR IT'S DISTORTION. You buy a pedal for that like every other rock or metal guitarist does." Said someone reviewing a Fender amp who clearly doesn't know anything about rock, metal, or distortion.
"Fortunately we have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity," Mattrick said. "It's called Xbox 360."
Sony just announced that the PS4 will launch at $399, undercutting the Xbox One by a full $100. OUCH.
This Marshall amp has four channels and one shared EQ for ALL of them. Who thought that was a good idea?
The MS VP responsible for games is Phil Harrison, and he's the top guy for Xbox One. Some of you may remember him; he was a top guy at Sony when they launched the PS3. Things are starting to make sense.
I maaaay have bought something today. It was being sold on Craigslist for next to nothing and I had to have it. Plays beautifully, too.
There's like eleven billion different Tube Screamer type pedals. How on earth are you supposed to choose?
Game industry friends: please let me know if you know a (tech) artist near Baltimore who would be interested in some consulting work.
