"By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes. Open Locks, Whoever knocks." - Macbeth - Act IV Scene I
I generally do not take requests unless you are one of my friends. You may make requests and I will get to them ASAP. Also, I like making surprises for my friends so please be sure ahd check my uploads to see if there is something there with your name on it as I don't go to your page to post them for you. Some of the surprises are posted directly to your gg page if the size is too large to actually upload onto this site.
Some of you have asked how the slow-motion graphics are created. They are made in a program called "Fantamorph". It is available online for a 30 day free trial if you want to give it a try. It is fairly user-friendly--just very time-consuming and, if you place one dot in the wrong place, you have a disaster. However, it is a fun program which is reatively inexpensive and makes wonderful and unusual graphics. Some of the images on my page which were made with this progrm were made by another person on this site and some were made by me. You can also take an image of your child (or grandchild) and an image of Spiderman or other superhero and the program will morph one face into the other over and over. Unfortunately, Fantamorph will not do glittered images. Thus, if you want an image that is animated AND glittered, you will have to export your moving image into another program such as Paintshop Pro and glitter it on that program.
My favorite authors are William Shakespeare, Anne Rice, T.H. White, Joseph
Campbell, Poe, T.S. Eliot, Cervantes, John Steinbeck, Ray Bradbury, Frank
Herbert, Isaac Asimov, Robert Holdstock, Tennessee Williams, and Franz Kafka.
My favorite plays are Camelot, Chorus Line, Jesus Christ Superstar, Man of
LaMancha, The Mikado (performed by D'Oyly Carte Opera Company), Cats, Les
Miserables, Riverdance and Phantom of the Opera and I was blessed to be able to
see them all performed on stage with the original Broadway cast.
As for music, I love Loreena McKennett, Joan Baez, Queen, Jethro Tull, and any kind of
Celtic music. I hate country/western and rap.
Photography is one of my hobbies and I also enjoy painting sci-fi and fantasy
If I could be anything in the world, I would love to be a vampire. If I could
do time travel, I would love to visit the Renaissance period or go back to the
time of King Arthur.
I like meeting new people and dharing ideas.
I love all vampire movies, goth movies, Deathnote, and most horror and sci-fi movies. I'm a "special effects junkie" and love to put them in slow motion and see how certain effects are achieved. It takes the mystery out but I like to know why the world wags and what wags it. If I could live anywhere in the world, I would go to Tintagel in England (the birthplace of King Arthur) or to Northern Scotland close to the North Sea or one of the lochs. England, Scotland and Ireland must be seen to be believed. They are the most beautiful places on the planet and one experiences an overwhelming sense of peace while there. I've been blessed to be able to go there numerous times since one of my friends was a flight attendant and got free passes for me and I have friends in Europe so I always had a place to stay.
