evhead: Ten Rules for Web Startups

Almost over!

Well its that time again when I'll say so long to another semester at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. To tell the truth I really kinda glad. This semster's been a headache to say the least. I really lament the fact that there is not film program here. Only theatre and drama. Of course we are home to the Arkansas Razorbacks. Sports here suck most of other departments funding. Man, I can't wait for the new year to get here. 2006 I hope will be an exciting year at least in consumer electronics. It seems that its already shaping up to be with CES and Macworld San Fransico in January, with Apple's announce of their roleout of Intel-based Macs. Along with the lauchs of Playstation 3 and Nintendo Revolution. 2006 looks to be a great year, we'll see soon.

I hope their are some cool new prosumer camcorders at CES 2006, I can't hardly wait to get a new camcorder and start shooting indie shorts and features. Oh, I kinda shying away from the Panasonic GS400, the tape transport problem is not something I want to deal with. I've been looking at the JVC GY-DV300U instead, unless something equally awesome comes out at CES. I'm buying this one.

Wow, what is this world coming to?

What's the world coming to? Today, I read that the US Government wants to oversee (read: "gain control of") and most likely will impose regulations on the content that is displayed on the Internet. At least in the U.S.A.

I found some funny stuff yesterday while I was working on a school project. I post it here later or on my website. I also found another poltically correct (at least in my eyes) blog, and the author has a sense of humor (read: "I think she's Democratic or Independant who is tired of being herded like sheep") toward our President and the whole Iraq issue as well as others like Hurricane Katrina, Social Security, Healthcare to name a few.

Here's the link:

Heck, even former President Bill Clinton thinks that the Iraq invasion was a big mistake. I post a link to that story here later too.

Try Avoidance Blog

I see if Josh is truthful with his claim of no more tape transport noise on the GS400!

Found a new blog software that can run locally on your computer!

I just found a new client blog creation software. Its called Ecto, I haven't downloaded and previewed it yet, but it does seem better to use right now than Frequency, I tried that out last week. It does not have an easy way to add titles to blog posts, Ecto however does.

What's up with Apple's Safari and Blogger

I wonder when Blogger will allow Apple's Safari web browser to have the features that are already available to IE and Firefox. As far as posting goes. With "Compose" and "Edit HTML" tabs. This makes it a lot easier to insert hyperlinks into posts I think.

Film Club update

I almost forgot... we had a Film Club meeting tonight. we decided to finish last semester's film "Invisible", and will start working on "Hang-Over Hotel" latter this month. The Eureka Springs Digital Film Festival is this weekend (Nov.12-13) Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Unfortunately, I won't be going, I'm busy on Saturday and at night I have to run crew on the UA Drama Dept.'s production of "Big Love". what a downer, did I mention I am a Drama major. The Film Club will be have a recruitment event next spring, so hopefully we'll get some new people will mad skills or at least the desire to make LOTS!! of films. Almost forgot at the end of the meeting we watched some truely dreadful S&M short that some local filmmaker did. Let's just say I've seen better Internet porn than that. That all for now, LATER!

Some people are really weird or just inmature!

Some people are really weird, I was reading a forum post under the "Newbie" section this morning at and this 16 year old kid was making a film about his life, he was trying for the dramatic, but it seemed more like a documentary to me. He was going off about how he was all expeienced at life an such, it was really pathetic. The other posters were more than willing to give him constructive criticism, but he did seem like he wanted it. His script NEEDED some serious work, some of his ideas really made no sense. As he continued to post on this topic he got so mad, because everybody kept telling him that he really didn't have a "shootable" script. He said that a 20 yr old wouldn't know any more about life that he did. He said that his life had been pretty rough up to this point, so he thought he was an authority on life of a teenager and everybody else was just stupid or something. I 'll put a link at the end to his posting.

Here's the link.

First Post Ever

Hi everybody,

This my first post ever, I thought I'd enlighten you with what going on in my life a little bit, as well as my projects (some related to filmmaking and some not.) I'm the webmaster (well kinda) for the University of Arkansas, Fayettville's
Film Club, is a student organization that allows for UA students to create films of all kinds, it was founded to promote student filmmaking on campus, and off. As well as to promote independant filmmaking throughout Northwest Arkansas. My own site,Dusk till Dawn Productions, is home to a few past projects of mine as well as links to filmmaking and theatre sites I find interesting.
