Mama wants a little sugar.
Most everything you see on this page is my personal random creation. I'm a music producer, filmmaker and protean multi-media dilettante in general. If you're interested in any of my more serious work, I'll provide links to them now and then. In the meantime, here are my random braindroppings.
He said Star Trek is too “philosophical”? Screw that noise.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
So before diving into a remix, I thought I’d first mix and master the original Hank’s Face tracks to get an idea of what I have to work with. Except for some percussion I added to tighten up the beat, these are all the original tracks that Hank offered up, unedited. (From them I mixed and mastered the entire song the same way I would any tracks or stems a client may give me.)
Now all of Nerdfighteria can get an idea of what the original Hank’s Face might sound like if professionally mixed and mastered. (I think it sounds pretty freaking awesome, if you don’t mind me saying.) I hope all the nerdfighters think so as well.
Now to jump into a remix. Maybe two. We’ll see.
ANNOUNCING THE GIFMASTER AWARD!
WE PROPOSE THAT THE GIF IS AN ARTFORM. The constraints and attributes of the medium, whether file size, photoset layouts, looping, frame stalls…it’s amazingly complicated.
The creators of epic GIFs, of course, do not do it for money or fame or even recognition, they do it because they love it. But just because they do not do it for recognition does not mean that they don’t deserve to be recognized. John and I will be distributing GIFMASTER badges (above) when we reblog GIFs that we find particularly inspiring, innovative, or amazing.
We’re working on making this a real pin that we can mail to people who receive GIFMASTER badges, but we’re not, at the moment, promising anything.
To make your GIFs eligible for the GIFMASTER award, just put “gifmaster” in your tags.
Also, the GIFMASTER badge can be awarded by anyone, not just John and me, but be sparing, or else it will lose it’s power. To post the GIFMASTER badge, just use this URL in the image field http://media.tumblr.com/75540b6676741cffbd68b078dd8f82ec/tumblr_mjovwdQDO41rprch2o1_r1_500.png
The best part about this is now there’s a tag from which we can search all the GIFs from the makers who think them worthy of the GIFMaster tag. That should get interesting.
The Pronunciation of GIF
This might be one of my favorite Hank videos of all time.
Have to disagree with Hank on this one. Language is at its best when it is unequivocally free from ambiguity. If we were to remove context while someone was talking about GIFs, pronouncing its like Jif, then it’s not clear whether they mean the image format or the peanut butter. But there’s no other meaning to Gif with a hard g. Sure, said fast some might take it for gift, but GIF and gift are not the same words. My point is, saying GIF is far more clear and unambiguous than saying JIF, so why not make things easy and just all say GIF?

This is spot on.
reblog if you’re allowed to keep your computer/tablet in your room
please can i try to get a lot of notes???
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD REBLOG! I DON’T WANT THIS POOR SOUL TO NOT BE ALLOWED THEIR COMPUTER IN THEIR ROOM!!!
I’m allowed in the day time, but not at night. I fucking sucks.
Technically, I can do whatever the heck I want, because I’m a grown man who lives 10,000 miles away from my mother. I’m just reblogging this because the shit that parents do completely baffles me. Instead of treating their children like normal people, they treat them like prisoners, as if 1 hour of walking around the prison yard is enough of a break from their prison cell. This constant obsession parents have with depriving their children of fun activities that they fear will “spoil” them, or (god forbid!) expose them to the outside world is simply lazy parenting. It’s saying, “I would rather not make the effort to properly acclimate my child to the world of adults, so instead I’m just going to cage them off from it, and when they finally reach adulthood, I’m just going to throw them out into the big, bad, ugly world like a prisoner who’s been locked away for so many decades they’ve never even seen an airplane before.” This is just stupid, lazy parenting. And, yes, you can quote me on that.
