Teens and Idea's

My teens convinced me that we should blog, video blog and become YouTube sensations. Well, I'm not entirely on board but one teen seems to thing we are like the Kardashians... Not even close. We're all male for starters and we don't have the wealth to flaunt... So we are making videos about poor white Canadian folks?

My teens tried to explain several ideas... needless to say I have them down to one idea and I built a logo for them to use as well. Not sure what they are going to come up with or how this will work but this is where we are at.

This Happened in Sci-fi

Enjoyed Calgary Phil Harmonic Orchestra at their year end performance. It was moving, educational and fun!
What I  really found amazing was the visual components added to the amazing musical accompaniment. I should add the photos accompanied the orchestra. Was surprised and sad to learn many people were retiring. people serving between 36 and 45 years are hanging up the tails and ties. I can't imagine having any career that lasts so long no matter how hard I try, yet these folks found away to do just that. Stay employed for many, many years. I'm sure they only earn honorariums for the amount of practice they put in, but I want to say thank you for your dedication and awesome last performance for us last night. I was moved by the talent and passion and commitment to the music and the arts.

Things I learned, A star flying through space leaving a debris trail much like a comet named Mira. Quasars and black holes have orbital junk rings too. Then the mother of mind blowing concepts, for get planet collisions, think bigger... Yes entire Galaxies colliding. It is a thing and it happens as captured by PHD Astronomer on hand to share with us!

Quick Video Sample

Well because I can... Here is a low res link to a quick video thing you guys can do. …🤓

 I really enjoyed putting a sample of what can be done and should be done to keep viewers aware of the events of a video cast. If you don't visit often enough you tend to forget who is who and what is what. This sample video was a quick demo of what they should consider doing to keep viewers engaged in the events and offer visual reference for the game they are playing.

I have to say they are doing so much right and I would love to see it pushed forward even more.

~ Enjoy !

The day, the week and the link!

First D&D 5E character build

This was fun to learn and walk through. A bunch more detail than I remember yet fun to do. I hope I built it right. I have a ton more to learn about this game version before I'm awesome. Hope you all like the art I put into the custom character sheet too.
~ Enjoy!
