Beary Happy Birthday!

Its my birthday and this is what I do on my birthday!

Ummm… Shenanigans


So I am going through the iTunes Ping looking up different artists I may want to follow. Most of the profiles are obviously not updated by the artists themselves and or are only used to promote their music, I do believe I read an article that said Apple forbid using Ping for self promotion, WHATEVER.

Any who, I some across Pharoahe Monch, and artist I feel would have great insight into music, someone I feel is an MC in the highest form. So I am looking at the profile and realise the picture associated with Monch’s profile is in fact Murs a West Coast MC.

Now if Apple is going to promote Ping as a musical social network mistakes like this can not be over looked. I mean all black people do not look alike, and it wold take what 1 minute to check and see if the photo of Pharoahe Monch is in fact Pharoahe Monch. I can also not figure out how this could happen. I mean Pharoahe did not make the page, one of his team did not make the page, and ultimately the mistake. Murs does not want to be Monch, at least I think he does not, so what happened here?

I don’t really have a conclusion to this post, it is rather a rant. So if you really are looking for something to take away from this, take this with you…

A helping Tentacle..

I came across this prosthetic design while trolling through the internets. Designed by Kaylene Kau a graduate from the University of Washington. The prosthetic takes a different approach to replacing an arm.

I have seen many ideas, designs, and strides in the field of prosthetics, but the problem always seems to be how to replicate the amazing functionality of the human hand.

This idea by Ms. Kau just forgets about the hand and takes a different angle. Designed to replicate tentacle, this prothetic is is a great idea. What is also great about the design is its ability to reduce the power requirements as illustrated in this schematic drawings shown below.

It is ideas like Ms. Kau’s that illustrate the importance of taking a different route to the solution of a problem. Advances are made only by those who are willing to find their own path and are not afraid of trying something new.

Taking a completely realist view of the project I do understand that some may view a tentacle, in lieu of a hand or arm, as somewhat unsettling. I feel as though if this prothetic could improve a person’s quality of life then the tentacle is completely worth the looks they may receive.

Give Kaylene some traffic and check out her project http://www.coroflot.com/kaylenek/PROSTHETIC-ARM?school_name=University+of+Washington%2C+College+of+Built+Environments&

I have included a few more photos below. Absolutely amazing, oh and yes Cephalopods are the BEST and are simply AMAZING!

Stickers…

There have been a lot of questions regarding whether or not I am still producing stickers. Rest assured all stickers are still available for the 13″ MBP and the 15″ MBP.

All you have to do is leave a comment in the appropriate post requesting a sticker. Please make sure you note what size you would like and if you are in the US or not, postage price matters. The PayPal request goes to the email you used to leave the comment unless you note otherwise. If you do not wish to leave your PayPal email address in the comment field, for everyone to see, just send me an email at jirobot@me.com after you have left a comment.

I would also ask that if you do purchase a sticker, and like the sticker, please leave an additional comment noting your pleasure with the product and service.

Thanks again to all those who have purchased a sticker or expressed interest or appreciation.

Inception…

I had this crazy idea the other day, one of many, about Inception. First, I would like to say I walked out of the theater amazed and asking myself so many questions. The ideas presented in the movie have been running through my head ever since that fateful day, or night, I was introduced to the idea of dream levels. I have attempted to wrap my head around the many different scenarios that could occur by having six characters travel through their dream states. How many possibilities could there be in the dream level combinations? Oh, wait, I forgot to mention that I absolute am enthralled with television right now, Rubicon, True Blood, Warehouse 13, Eureka, Firefly, etc. So that being said I would like to present the idea of a television series based on Inception.

I would love to see this movie become a television series. I believe, if done correctly, it could appeal to a wide range of the television audience and would create a following the likes of LOST and Battlestar Galactica. Without really going into the idea I basically thought it would be great to see the movie drawn out into a series. Each episode would bring a new level of the dream state. This would allow for a great diversity in the sets, costumes, stories, while keeping one thread of an idea running throughout the season and wrapping that idea up in the season finale, or not. We could be introduced to a series of amazing characters throughout the season. With every episode our perception of reality would be questioned and bent with the set design and location.

I beg you, yes you, if you are listening, please make this happen. It would be a great success and would be another great televisions series to watch.

The King of Pop, there is none Higher!

This is a little homage to Mr. Jackson. I did not want to jump on the band wagon and make this when he first passed nor even on the anniversary of his passing. I wanted to take my time and do something I felt was right. I made this because I have loved the man’s music since I was little and I still do.
