Vigoda For The Win! Burgers! RPM!

HoldThePhone!
So it’s been almost a year since the last post. Why? Life moves, y’all. And you move with it. Sometimes online social posturing takes a back seat while you manage other tasks or ignore them altogether. And lots has happened, inevitable as death itself. So let’s not recap, and I’ll instead tell you I planned to try my iPad app to let me post here after taking some choice shots of the last two nights of homemade burgers I made and devoured. Thing was, it was on my fancy camera, so I dropped the files to my Google Drive in the hopes of accessing the pics. To my dismay, no. So instead I put on display some earlier art I made from a beauty screenshot of Abe Vigoda, who’s been in the news as deceased. For real! On that note, I wish everyone a joyous National Peanut Butter Lovers Day, a thank you to February for all time, and I made another RPM record, suckas! More to follow!

Content Drop!

So the tech world of today is drowning in “content”.  That’s what we call media these days…any piece of video, photo, sound, text or other entertaining or interesting tidbit found in the teeming internet ocean that may one day be given a thumbs-up by the masses.  It used to be a tangible thing, like full-page magazine spreads and vinyl records.  Or cozy on the couch with snacks for prime-time action TV.  Now anyone can take their own videos or be a shutterbug, digitally…using their phone!  Now called a mobile device.  Isn’t it crazy that one of the earliest advances in communicating with others verbally is now used for just about anything you can imagine?  This includes capturing digital content to proliferate on innumerable websites.  And there’s no shortage of those “content providers”, whether it’s a social site or vid page or photo viewer.  They want, or rather need, your content.  The populace has a limited attention span, overstimulated by media from all sides, and requires something else to garner amusement or get a smiley from.  So if they’re not getting the fix from a giant media conglomerate, it may as well be you.

So why am I going on with this obvious rant? Well, there is some dismay over people glued as phone-zombies, however the same things were said about television or video games.  The real point is the creation of content for this blog.  It comes down to what kind of life record you embody in the digital ether, and if it can be accessed by the technologically adept.  Therefore I’m submitting a few pieces for my digital history, whether anyone notices in the inter-sea or not.  The content is largely photo art in nature, recently made from archived pics.  I tried not to work too hard on it, because it was about the fun of making more of them.  So I will.  Maybe next time with my phone…
