Fun with a Fisheye Lens
2011 was my 6th year attending the Northern Voice personal media conference. I took the opportunity this time to play around more with my DSLR camera. I got to talking with photographer John Biehler about shooting using a fisheye lens, and he was kind enough to lend me his for the second day of the conference.

Fisheye is such a different perspective, it took me some time to get a feel for what it works well on. Here are a few of my favorite fisheye shots from the day (click to enlarge):

See all my photos in my 2011 Northern Voice photoset. The first half were with a 'regular' lens, and the second half are fisheye shots.

Disarmed by a Piano


I love this piano cover of Disarm. There's a lot more great keyboard covers from the same person on vkgoeswild's YouTube Channel, check it out.

Pop Quiz: Real or Fake


Without looking it up on the Inter-webs, what is the likelihood, from 1 to 10, that this is a real video and not a joke?
1 = As real as unicorns with sqrt(-1) horns
10 = Gunther is in the Grammy runnings
For some reason I am not convinced either way...it's just so rhythmic and catchy...

Petra's Call flash webcomic


Petra's Call is an innovative flash-based webcomic from Ninja Robot Dinosaur that you should definitely check out. There are 15 episodes currently, all available through the embedded flash app above.

I met the creator Shane Neville years ago in Vancouver. He since moved out to the Maritimes, but looks like he's back in Lotusland in 2010. Exciting!

A skyscraper with no Seoul
While the the opening of the Burj Dubai hogs the world's headlines, the Ryugyong Hotel, a 105-storey empty building in the heart of Pyongyang, North Korea, is in its 23rd year of construction and would cost 10% of North Korea's GDP to make inhabitable. Whether you are for or against the North Korean nuclear missile programme, you have to admit it it has been more successful than this. Honestly, I still wonder how Kim Jong Il's party was able to win all of the seats in the last North Korean elections after this building fiasco.
