(Almost) 5 Minutes of Kitties!

Nothing much to say, but I made a stupid video about kitty cats I've been hanging out with lately.

I Have Vimeo Now.

I just realized I have been posting all my more recent work to Vimeo, not Youtube, and I wanted to make a quick post about it here.  Basically, this account is for my Video Art course in college, but I also put some personal stuff up there and I have some stuff from my Motion Graphics class on there, too.  These, for now, are just exercises and assignments, so I'm learning as I make these.  Hopefully I'll keep making short films and animations and I'll start publishing more content like this to Youtube as well, but for now this is all there is.  Enjoy.  Click here to visit my Vimeo account.

We Started A Podcast!

We now have a podcast! It's vaguely related to DestructoBlog kind of!
My buddy Josh and I started a podcast a few weeks ago, and here is the first episode, parts 1 and 2.
For now, we're just posting them to youtube, but eventually there will be an RSS feed for you to follow.

Custom Arcade Controller "Super Mobile Suit Fighter IV: Jaburo"

Project: “Super Mobile Suit Fighter IV: Jaburo” Fight Stick (Xbox 360/PC Custom Arcade Controller)
Abstract: Create an Arcade Controller for Xbox/PC with a Mobile Suit/SSF4 Theme
Status: Complete (2013)

I decided at some point to create something for Jay (after the first Protoman helmet, before the Zeon NES) for Christmas 2012. That did not happen. It ended up being a nightmare-project from hell that took me weeks to work the bugs out of. I am not an electronics expert, nor am I a carpenter, but I ended up making a complete, working, reliable arcade controller using real Suzo-Happ parts, real arcade parts, real Cherry switches, and for less than $150.

One Possible Future (Part 2)

Project: One Possible Future (Part 2)
Abstract: Customize an NES in the style of a Sazabi model kit
Status: Complete

The Sazabi NES project is finally finished. In this article, I will show you the finished product and also explain how I made a game converter out of spare parts. The project really didn't need to take 8 months to finish, but the combination of burning up my last parts and my lack of free time really pushed it out. But that's all bullshit, let's take a look at the project. Warning, this is SUPER image heavy.
