I know this is silly and maybe a little twisted, but it made me laugh so I thought I would share it.  I found it on a website call  Great site if you are into 3d, Motion graphic design, or just want to see an interesting video from time to time...  And for the record I have no affiliation with that web site.
30 Ways to kill a cowboy.

Roanoke Fast Forward - Time Lapse of a Beautiful City

I created this time lapse video to show the beauty of the city that I live in.  It was created using a camera phone to take thousand of pictures which were later combined using software called  Blender 2.61.  It was my hope to show the city in a new and exciting way.  I hope you like it.

Roanoke Fast Forward.

Thanks for watching,

Find Fast Answers Virus

I some how got infected with a virus that redirected my browser to a website called "Find Fast Answers".  It was really frustrating because every time I did a search using either google or yahoo I would end up at that stupid website.  What I did to fix the problem was upgrade my browser to the latest version of firefox.  That seemed to work but Im still having the same problem.  Im also going to get an antivirus program McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2011 3-User
for good measure.

Colorful Fluid Music

This is a playful 3d music visualization done using the free blender 3d 2.58 and audacity software.  Blender was used for the preview and final render.  Audacity was used to separate the audio into different frequencies using the equalizer filter.  The preview was done using blender's build in OpenGL preview with the rendered only option set.  If you are an user of Blender 3d then you may want to check out my multiple fluid domain video tutorial on YouTube.  There is a link to it on this website.

The title of the piece that is performed is "Ludwig van Beethoven - symphony no. 4 in b flat major, op. 60 - iv. allegro ma non troppo" and is preformed by the Skidmore College Orchestra.  If you would like to buy a mp3 of this song.  Here is a link.

The version in the link is by a different performer and does have the coughing or "skip" in the background.  Please note, I would earn a commission for the purchase.
