Making Internet Memes (Series 13, Episode 3)

Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph from 2012 (IMDB) has a lot of great references in it, but one of the geekiest has got to be King Candy’s use of the Konami Cheat Code (link).  But in searching GetYarn.io, there apparently isn’t enough valid subtitle / dialogue action to get a good gif (not to mention having to click back from the nearest valid dialogue that turned up the correct section of the movie lol).          So guess it’s time for another round of “make it yourself”! 😉 Start with a little dash of Googling (Google Search | youtube to gif), throw in a pinch of “this second link looks promising” (Youtube to GIF | free YouTube to GIF Generator on Make A GIF), cook for 15 seconds, and et voilà!  Wreck-It-Ralph King Candy Konami Cheat Code on Make a GIF Of course I’m a big fan of having my … Continue reading →

Fun facts about Jupiter

So I was doing a daily workout for Lumosity (as one should when paying for a premium subscription) and stumbled upon some interesting facts about Jupiter. But then one sentence caught my eye – “there is a total absence of solid matter on the planet”. Why did it catch my eye? Because earlier there had been description of the liquid portion of Jupiter being an ocean. And oceans have ocean floors, right? So … what’s at the center of Jupiter? For that matter, what holds Jupiter together? And how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Jupiter Roll Pop?  Clearly further research needed to be done on at least one of those questions, so I turned to our favorite future overlord, Google. I started with what’s at the center of Jupiter, but then transitioned to what holds jupiter together. The first result, an article from … Continue reading →

Making Internet Memes (Series 7, Episode 2)

Indiana Jones Whip GIF In the process of making that GIF, I discovered ezgif.com which contains a fairly amazing suite of online tools that made the creation of that GIF (from a video clip I created locally) extremely easy. “How easy was it?” So easy that when I next encountered a quote that I couldn’t find on GetYarn.io, I decided to be ambitious and give it a go myself. Jersey Girl – That’s cute. 8 o’clock you both get a bottle.

Judge orders RunDisney The Animated Series to release an official timeline

7 Technological Wonders Predicted by Disney Theme Park Attractions – D23 Fun! Kind of silly, but still! RUMOR: RunDisney Cancels All Future Race Events, Half Marathons at the Disneyland Resort – WDW News Today Innnnteresting. Some friends were having a discussion recently about some sort of RunDisney hub-bub, and I wonder if some (any) of the concerns are addressed/explained by this rumor. UPDATE – 18th October 2017 My wife reminded me that there is some additional, political context to this issue in the current battle between Disney and the Anaheim City Council. The L.A. Times did a good job breaking down the situation in their two-part article here: Is Disney paying its share in Anaheim? The money battle outside the Happiest Place on Earth – Los Angeles Times Marvel will release an official timeline for MCU after Spider-Man: Homecoming fiasco – Polygon Um….okay? I didn’t know this was such a … Continue reading →
