I'm an Aperture fan.

I've never been really into Aperture, Apples pro level photo library app. When Apple released their latest update this week however, I downloaded it and I've been playing with it. A producer I work with asked me today what it was all about and I said, "It's basically 'iPhoto Pro'". I know that's a GROSS generalization but thats the best I could come up with.

It made me realize that I REALLY don't know that much about it but I've been playing with the new Version 3 Trial Version and I'm starting to really appreciate it.

If you want to learn more about it check my friends site. Aperture Expert. Joseph Linaschke use to work at Apple and really knows this app backwards and forwards and if you follow him on the twitters you know, he's really happy with this upgrade. 

But as it turns out... I think I'm becoming a fan of the app. BTW, it allows me to make HD QT movies from the slide shows, and it has some pretty nice themes. It will also allow me to embed by HDSLR movies from my 5DM2 or 7D... 

You may want to try the Trial Version whiles available... I'm hooked.


Pave the Planet? Its an idea.

Yep, I drive a Prius, whats it to you? Its like driving a laptop. I love it. This is an idea I came up for a T-Shirt a few years ago. What do you think? Would it sell?


B&W hiding bad white balance?... Yep

Be honest... have you ever "decided" to make something black and white because you screwed up the white balance? I did. I mean, it works and all, and I could sit around and justify it for days, but the color on this piece was REALLY off.


William J. Clinton Foundation does not meet Standards

What has happened in Haiti is horrible, however, be careful who you are donating to.

You need to look into the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. IT IS NOT A REAL charity. From their own web page it states, "Presidents Clinton and Bush oversee the CBHF through their respective nonprofit organizations, the William J. Clinton Foundation and Communities Foundation of Texas." meaning the money gets split up between Bill and George.

So there is not really a Clinton Bush Fund...

Now take a look at what the Better Business Bureau has to say about the William J. Clinton Foundation. No oversight, insufficient number of board members, to many paid board members, not enough board member meetings, TONS of problems... including, only THREE board members, (who? Bill Hill and Chelsey??) Just go read for yourself here.

And don't miss the $132,000,000 income for 2007.  Wow "Ex-presidenting" is profitable.

I think I would donate to Doctors Without Borders.


Google Search Stories

As it turns out, Google has a bunch of these ads... they are called Google Search Stories. You should really check them all out.
