Birthday #58


The above image is, Fiddledeedee Delegates

Today's song is my newest Garageband mp3 creation, Fiddledeedee Delegates.

Another birthday celebration for me today and it's a busy one! I was taken to lunch at the local Applebee's by some of the Twin Oaks Toastmasters members (shown below). Pictured with me are: Sue, Lela, Veronica, Maria Dolores, Lisa, and Stela. They sang, "Happy Birthday" to me. That was cool!

Tonight I was out to dinner with Sherry and DJ to celebrate at Acapulco's here in San Marcos, California.

I received one present already. That was the upgrade to Photoshop Elements 6. It really is very powerful and I've been busy with it lately. Another gift is a Starbucks card that I'll use when I meet with friends at the nearby store in San Marcos (shown below).

There are probably a few more presents arriving before the night is over. ;-)

My new art, Fiddledeedee Delegates and accompanying music is my expression of dissatisfaction with the dismal situations with political delegates [1; 2] in this 2008 election cycle. Imagine how the voters will continue to be split even after the final decision is reached?

Take a look at my Fiddledeedee Delegates Quicktime Music Video. It is available on the QuickTime Videos page in full length for a visual representation of the situation. (Snapshot shown below).

This current fiasco is just one more reason I say look to the election of 2012 before this country figures out who it wants as a leader and in what way will America change forever afterwards. We have a long way to go, baby!

On Saturday, March 29, 2008, my friend, Jeff Rutan (shown below), demoed modo at the Crywolf store. Jeff represented the San Diego modo User Group which he helped start.

Jeff brought his new Eight-core Mac Pro (shown below on right) to show the dramatic differences in rendering a sophisticated modo model in comparison to a Mac G5 attempting to keep up (black window) when running the same software. Both renderings started at the same time.

I am publishing another short movie today, Still in Love with You Quicktime Music Video. It is available on the QuickTime Videos page. It features a snippet of one of my Heart of Digital Passages songs, Still in Love with You. (Snapshot shown below).

Bob, my brother-in-law sent me the following joke, knowing how much I "like" Microsoft:

One of Microsoft's finest technicians was drafted and sent to boot camp. At the rifle range, he was given some instruction, a rifle, and bullets. He fired several shots at the target. The report came from the target area that all attempts had completely missed the target. The technician looked at his rifle, and then at the target. He looked at the rifle again, and then at the target again. He put his finger over the end of the rifle barrel and squeezed the trigger with his other hand. The end of his finger was blown off, whereupon he yelled toward the target area, "It's leaving here just fine, the trouble must be at your end!"
