It's so cute that it's hard to be annoyed by 3 kitty posts in a row! Right?

 I'm not that comfortable with two kitty posts in a row so quick someone post something else.


It's an adorable fight to the death!

It's a Source engine mod. And it looks awesome.

I love Adult Swim flash games. Though I didn't think this one was as good as the others we've posted about, it was still pretty fun. And hell mode was hellish.

This was probably the most Photoshopped picture we've ever done for a Shooting Challenge, which makes the story behind it less great. Basically it was late on Sunday night, we searched my house for inspirational items to photograph, and came up with this. It's a mask thing... that also looks like a mask thing. That's where we failed, it doesn't really look like anything else besides two masks put together. But the shape was neat and we didn't realize our fault at the time, and we had fun doing it. I didn't really like the winners, this challenge didn't have much opportunity for diversity.

Damn it America.

This is a pretty thorough guide to many of the problems with Macs. It's a bit long as you might imagine, but I found it interesting so you may at least want to skim through.

If you are angered that I'm showing a bias here, I will attempt to alleviate some of the anger by linking to the guide to Windows problems as well. However most of the Windows problems are either not relevant to most users or not really problems at all.

So this week's Shooting Challenge was sorta spur of the moment. At Eli's house we decided to try it, and we asked an asian friend for asian incense and then used color-changing show lights. We tried using the fastest shutter speed possible without using the flash, but the smoke still came out blurry since we didn't use a tripod. This was one of our best shots, but we submitted this one instead. I didn't think the winners were that great, but a lot of really good entries were submitted. Tough challenge, but it was a really fun experience.

I think I might have to watch his new show.

So guys... I made a tumblr. For anyone who's interested anyways. I'm not really sure what I want to post and I'm not really sure how often I want to post things, but I feel like co-writing this blog means I can't take over and post dumb things, and I want a place to do that. So I made my own. I'll still post Shooting Challenges here and all, I'll just be posting more things there.

You might remember the first two from way back when. I think this one was a lot cooler, and a bit longer too. Damn it, homework.

This is really exciting news for The Lunch Box, last week Bradley and I were honorably mentioned in a Shooting Challenge! It's ironic because this shot is pretty basic. I wasn't there for the set-up (or the actual shot), but Brad hung a sheet in the window behind this model boat and then took a picture. I edited, making it monochromatic and the black-white contrast a little more defining, and voila. Our masterpiece. Here's the gallery we're in. I guessed there would be lots of sunset pictures and yep there were, that's where our diversity came in handy. I particularly like the lead shot with hot air balloons and the spider web one.

Figure it out. My high score is 2037 by the way.

They are ugly. Also I will have that Berries & Cream video up eventually, damn you.

So I'm actually pretty close to catching up with these past shooting challenges, this one was from just last week. Ish. Maybe 2 weeks ago, or something. A group of friends went hiking at Sleeping Giant, we staged this picture (which was my brilliant idea of course) and bam. Success. There wasn't a whole lot of technique behind this besides point-and-shoot, but I love the grainy quality and well, the complete lack of quality in the second picture. There were only 22 submissions this week and guess what, we didn't even win. Here's the gallery, seems kinda small and lonely though.

I usually don't post stuff from xkcd because I just assume everyone reads it, but this was too cool. You might remember his first Online Communities map from back in the day. It's pretty fun to see how everything has changed. Click on the picture on the site for a bigger one. It's really big.

This wasn't a planned shooting challenge, I was actually vacationing in New Hampshire the week of it. I ended up just looking through the pictures I had taken during the week and submitting the one most worthy of R & R, which was the goat sleeping under the fence thing. Some of the entries for this week were pretty lame, but the winner (the hospital one, Labor Day) had a great ironic theme.
