Dead Island Trailer On Vimeo


If you look through the posts on this blog you'll notice that it's generally kept pretty light and entertaining.

For the most part it's up to other blogs and sites handle all the blood and gore videos etc.



For about the last week or two YouTube has been chasing me off its site by not allowing their videos to play on my PC. 

I've done searches and discovered that this happens from time to time to different people for a variety of reasons.

YouTube has even "helpfully" offered up a link to a list of "solutions" to try to resolve the issue...but after implementing all of them...I get BUPKIS!

The upside to this annoyance is that I finally tired of it...and just tonight "rediscovered" Vimeo.

And all their videos play just fine...thank you very much.

Browsing through Vimeo's "animation" channel brought me to the Dead Island 2 video game trailer (Deep Silver / Yager)...embedded below.

WARNING:  If you don't like zombie movies...or walked out of "World War Z"...then you will probably hate this!

OTOH...if you laughed your head off during Sean Of The Dead...then by all means press play on the video below.

It IS pretty funny...if you don't mind seeing zombies splattered all over the screen.....

....but remember you have been WARNED!!


Keep in mind that ALL the people, zombies, helicopters, and vehicles etc are 3D animations! 

(The folks at PETA will be thrilled that NO actual zombies were injured or killed during it's production).

FUNNY Video: What If Animals Were Round?


So I'm your typical media saturated, entertainment jaded humanoid living in the Year of our Lord 2014.

I often find myself aimlessly going from web-site to website, video to video, and channel to channel...and even with all those entertainment choices at my command...sometimes find myself a bit bored with it all.

So when I click on something and have a genuine's a real plus.

Such is the case for the 3D animation:  "What If Animals Were Round?"

I hope you share my sense of humor and get a kick out of it too!

Thanks as always for stopping by!

See you next time!

Will 3D Printing Change The World? In A Word: YES!

I found a video on YouTube called Will 3D Printing Change The World?

And it seems it certainly will!

I'll share the video below...but first some basic info about it:

3D Printing

3D printing has been around for some 15 years or so...but the buzz about it is growing louder day by day and year by year.

Around 2005 or so, I first saw a plastic "business card" that had been created on a 3D printer...and it had moving cogs like those on a clock built right into it. It was very cool!  (Way more awesome than the iPhone case seen at 1:22 in the video btw)

More recently I saw a man interviewed on a TV show who was suggesting that 3D printing would become so common place in the next few years...that most every home would have a printer...just like the ubiquitous televisions, phones, computers and document/image printers of today.


What Is 3D Printing?

A machine similar to a printer we now use to print documents and images from our computer takes a file created in 3D software and lays down thin layers...until slowly...layer upon an actual physical object begins to appear.

How Will 3D Printing Change Our Lives?

There will come a day when any 3D file you need will be available to instead of going to a store or online to buy a tool, a toy, a part, dishware, and on and'll download a file...and print it at home!

Or more enterprising folks may simply want to use software like Blender 3D, Sketchup or Maya to print their own creations....and will be "limited only by their own imaginations".


The video will explain much more about the technology and how it will be used...hope you enjoy it as much a I did!

Thanks for stopping by!

See you in the "future"!  ")
