Well, this isnt GIMP related, but you could download the trial version of Paint Shop Pro, from JASC software (good for 60 days, I think).
They have an AWESOME collection of pre-made planets in the “Paint Tube” tools. (I think they are listed as “marbles” but, they look JUST like planets!)
I am a Mac user, and usually I use photoshop… but,…[Read more]
My 2-cents here, which I feel I must always bring up when we talk of microphones (and I think Lowweek will agree…)
The Sony ECM-MS907 is a GREAT stereo mic that has a mini-jack, so you can plug it into a soundcard without special cables or pre-amps. You can find these on ebay for about $70 u.s.d.
I use mine with a minidisc recorder to…[Read more]

Uh, you’d better look into this a bit more before you buy.…[Read more]
hacking a perl-cgi guestbook is about the easiest thing in the world to do. Hell, even O’reilly’s “Learning Perl” book tells you a couple easy ways how it can be done… (then they of course tell you how to write the program to minimize risks…)
Guestbooks are very risky for your website. That’s why i took mine off my site.
Blunt, sorry to…[Read more]
thats an exellent point! i’ll have to check apples site about what the rules are… but i should be ok because i didnt use a full loop for any part of the song. i split all of them into halves or quarters and re-arranged them, or only used segments…like the slide guitar part. it was built from pieces of three different loops.
have you…[Read more]
my wifes new apple powerbook came with garageband, so i was messing around with it the other day and came up with this little soundtrack song.
download it here/a! and feel free to use it in your animations if you want.
let me just say, garageband ROCKS! apple has outdone themselves yet again!
i’ll be posting many more new music…[Read more]
Sony ECC-MS 907: Awesome mic. Can be found new for about $75 on ebay.
If you are new to mic’s and recording, here are a few tips.
* LOCATION: of the mic to the sound you are recording. This can have a huge impact on sound, especially how much bass a sound has. Closer is usually better, but not always. Experiment
* PREAMP…[Read more]

sillymonkey: we thought the story is now 191 years old… but thats very fresh i we compare it to the old testament….
I meant that, while not a new story, it is a very interesting story.
Almost everything in modern horror genre has been done already, and that makes old, macabre poems and…[Read more]
I can’t believe I only just got around to watching this one. Its been sitting in my “To Be Viewed” folder for ages.
Good animation, great sets and the childs imagination idea is wonderful!
This is now one of my favorite brickfilms of all times. I loved it.
Great job Rachel!
To create a Quicktime movie, in the format they specified, you will need to buy Quicktime Pro. It is $29 and available for the PC.
What you will need to do is…
1.) Whatever editing program you are working with, save your final project as a uncomressed MPEG, or DV file.
2.) Open quicktime and import the uncompressed project…[Read more]
I took a look at the nicktoons entry page, and saw the statement about “a mac formatted cd or dvd”…
As far as I know (I am a mac user), CD and DVD formats are universal, not computer dependent (unlike old floppy discs, which had VERY different formats for mac and pc)
I think as long as you send your movie in the exact quicktime format…[Read more]
Very, Very, Very, Very good!
One of the best brickfilms in a very long time. AWESOME sets (especially the grass and the water!) great animation, a great story.
Best of luck with this entry. It should so well!

I remember a time, not so long ago, when all the cellsites in our Cellular phone network communicated back to the main switch via modems that had a selector switch on the back, to choose between 300 and 1200…[Read more]
The sony 907 does a good job recording live bands using a minidisc recorder.
I recorded our band at a gig last week. ( NOTE: this recording mix sounds crappy because the mix in the room was bad, and I could have put the mic in a better location)
HERE/a is an MP3 from the gig.
recording a drum kit though?… well, recording good drums is…[Read more]
they are both great mics.
the 58 is more for live vocals, the sm 57 is more a general recording mic.
the difference in sound between them is so tiny… but i do notice it. i personally prefer the sound of the 57 over the 58 for almost everything… including vocals. (at least for my voice) i own 2 sm57’s and 1 sm58.
i’d go for the 57… plus…[Read more]
a good laptop for filmmaking? are you kidding? those little guys rock! My wife has a 12″ G3 800mhz model and it’s great. I’d love to have a G4 model!
I’m still using my ancient Powerbook G3 500Mhz for all my films and other stuff!
someday, someday… I’ll get a new G4 laptop.
