Cleaning up a bit

ok. time to turn my blog back into something useful. Links are now going to be excluded from the front page as full blown entries. I think i will take advantage of the JSON interfaces that Delicious offers and try my hand at some of that javascript the kids won't shut up about.

Ok, that's it for the "Post where blogger writes about all the crap they won't actually get around to." Those of you who know me get enough of that from listening to me in person.

DIY green screen

I finally got around to building myself a small green screen. Here are the materials I used:

  • 1 piece of plywood (free scrap)
  • 1 gallon of primer ($8)
  • 1 quart of Melon Green Glidden paint from the home depot ($8)
  • 1 roller ($4)

Total price: $20.

Here are some pictures and links to the first video that I shot with the screen. Juliana took direction pretty well and had a blast helping me make the video. :)
