I Wasted An Entire Day Modeling Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles, CA

I finally did it. I dove back into 3D design. And, of course, as per my norm I did so by picking a project that had less than a day left before the final deadline, and shortly after a new, full-version release of Blender was published, with which I had zero acquaintance when I began. So, naturally, I failed. =-/ I’l chalk it up to a learning experience.

The project was for the Master Builder’s competition on Upland.me. The models themselves are fairly simple, so in a way it was a wise place to pick 3D modeling back up. But not with less than 24 hours to learn the new software AND copy a building from scratch. I actually got pretty close. I completed the design of the model. I would have had to still bake textures for each of the 4 required mesh, upload the model to a preview site, make thumbnails, reduce the triangles to below 10,000, and then upload to Upland.

But hey, not bad for a first try, right? And a new competition kicked off this week, with several days remaining! =-)

Worth Remembering: Republicans Are Dishonest

This video is a blast from the past, but considering everything that’s going on right now in the World, I feel that it has apropos all over again. Remember, there are those in the USA who profit from struggle, accrue wealth from conflict. They are the Republicans. And they’ve been at this liar’s game for some time now:

This is actually a few days old now, but it’s my first video on TikTok to do well in quite some time, so I figured I had better post it here:

John Rich is Putin’s Bitch!

So, John Rich, who there is already not much reason to like, tweeted out an image of Trump standing behind the glass of an emergency fire box, with the text, “In Case Of Emergency Break Glass.” Since Vladimir Putin is CURRENTLY and illegally invading Ukraine, it is worth remembering that Trump extorted President Zelensky, denying them needed defense money in exchange for political investigations into trump’s rivals. Classy timing, John. Really classy.
