Not Enough Technology Coverage

The average cable station has less than one minute of science and technology coverage in five hours of coverage according to this report. I listen to probably 50% or more science and tech coverage in the form of audio and video podcasts. It's probably true that the people with the most interest in tech will be able to seek out this information on their own, but general news sources really need inform people of at least some of the goings on of the industry. With so much repetition on 24 hour news stations, you would think they would be scrambling for content

Invisible Logic

I saw the movie The Invisible. It was bad. Really bad. It's filled with plot holes. I have not seen a movie this poorly developed in a very long time. And I've seen some bad ones. Characters do things with no apparent motivation. The movie makes you ask "why?" But don't wait for the answers. I'm all for suspension of disbelief, but this one passes the threshold too much too often. Any answers you do get are one-dimensional and unimaginative. Worst of all, I spent much of the movie hoping that what I suspected would happen wouldn't. Because it would be ridiculous. But no they didn't spare me. Watching it on DVD, my friend Shane and I were reeling. We'd yell why is this happening. Most disappointing to me is how misleading the trailer turned out to be. The trailer touts that the main guy (Justin Chatwin) will have to solve the mystery of his death. There's no mystery as the circumstances are given up right away. Don't worry though, the scenes with the old man from the trailer explaining this are omitted. I didn't expect a great movie even with that trailer, but it was still horrifyingly worse than I could have imagined. The tough girl is touted as a victim of circumstance, but I didn't see any reason to feel sorry for her. There's no heroism in caring about those who care about you, it's much more moving to care about those who don't. Skip it!

If you didn't notice, there was a new episode of the SketcheeBook Podcast last week. The next new one will go out this Tuesday! I'm having some problems with the audio recording quality that I didn't have before. Hopefully I can get them squared away soon. For these two episodes, it will have to do.

I'm hoping to have another guest soon, there's one person who has said he'll do one so hopefully he'll get on that soon. He's probably reading this.

Creative & What else is there

Hopefully you've been checking out the SketcheeBook podcast, but if not please do. I'm hoping to have people submit questions, answers, comments, disagreements and tips to share with the audience. The audience is growing at a suprisingly steady rate. If you haven't checked out the show, it is about keeping productive with your creative stuffs. Especially for busy and dedicated people. All kinds of different tips for illustrators, designers, hobbyists, etc.

I've been pretty busy myself doing the whole graphic design thing six days a week. The goal is to have a new section sketchee.com with my design portfolio and change up the setup for the illustration and painting portfolio a little bit with the highlights. Yeah, this site has a lot of work to get it to where it needs to be. But that's is the dynamic nature of the web, I try to keep it at least presentable.

My latest posts have been from Nakama.ca, which seems to have gone down. My guess is that they got too popular for the kind of server loads that they have to handle. But it's suprising when the site has just vanished so abruptly.

SketcheeBook, The Creativity Productivity Podcast

I quietly launched the SketcheeBook Podcast . I have the initial bugs ironed out at this point so I'm ready for your feedback. Currently I'm having two episodes up each week. The site's setup allows me to upload a cache that updates automatically. I've been recording episodes in advance and at least have episodes done for a few weeks. The first few episodes are the basics of the creative process and there will be more things covered as we go.

If you're an graphic artist, illustrator, designer or other creative hopefully you'll either be able to get something from it, contribute or both. Send me your creativity tips and I'll mention your name and link in the show. Or better yet, record it yourself and I can have your voice and plug in the show. E-mail sketcheebook-at-sketchee.com or add that e-mail address to Google Talk to send a voicemail. Let me know what you want to hear, what you don't and all of that.
