3D Mouse Pad – Ooooo!

3D Mouse Pad - Ooooo!

When I was a kid I thought one of the coolest things was having a custom mouse pad. It was like being the most elite rich person in the universe if you had a unique pad to rest your mouse upon. Those standard black mouse pads or the ones that looked like a weird pool table just were not for me, I had to have my own unique one.

Over the years I have been through many but they have always been there. I can’t stand not using a mouse pad. It drove me freaking bonkers when I would work places that, a. did not have a mouse pad, or b. have ball style mice left over from 1992. For crying out loud, upgrade your gear! It’s a red flag if a media company does not have at least gaming mice to work with. So check that out on your job interviews. It irks me so much that I often bring my own mouse with me to work – especially if I’m doing a lot of computer work.

Currently and for the past 5 years I have been using a Star Wars Death Star mouse pad. It’s pretty cool, round and in the shape of said ‘Star. Why is it called a star though? Does it create its own energy? It must since it can hold over 1 million people!

A picture of the Star Wars pad might be more exciting than looking at this one even though mine is covered in dust and it’s hard to make out the Death Star anymore. I made this first from a crappy pastel quick landscape sketch. Then I scanned it into the computer and made it into a 3D mouse pad. Pretty easy stuff, I even made a pen but I think the scale is too small. I tried to make the edges not completely straight either and add some discoloring with texture effects. It looks like a pen for a tablet not to write with unless you are an elf.

Well, that’s all for now. Long live the mouse pad!

Boom and Bust: The American Dream criticized in Of Mice and Men and Great Gatsby quotes

Boom and Bust: The American Dream criticized in Of Mice and Men and Great Gatsby quotes

Apart from being historically classic novels recommended by both literary scholars and high school English teachers, The Great Gatsby and Of Mice and Men show both sides of the proverbial coin that we call the American Dream. On the shiny pretty side, you’ve got F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel about lavish parties, unbridled wealth and of course, rampant corruption and infidelity. On the rough dirty side of the coin, you’ve got John Steinbeck’s dusty story about two poor-as-dirt vagrant ranch workers in the throes of the Great Depression, whose only will to survive is a distant and unlikely dream of owning their own ranch.

While the novels are concerned with entirely different class of characters and settings—one about new and old money on the dog-eat-dog East Coast and the other about low-class laborers drifting around California’s sweltering central valley—they agree on a one thing: the futility of the much-mythologized American dream.

Of course, timing is everything. Published only 12 years apart, both books mark a timeline of economic boom and incredible bust for America. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, regarded as an enduring social commentary on the evils of excess and self-indulgence, was published only four years before the devastating stock market crash of ’29—also known as that cheerful moniker “Black Tuesday.”

Fitzgerald had some crazy Nostradamus stuff going on. Even though Fitzgerald did not blatantly predict America’s worst financial crisis that brought on the depression and thus Steinbeck’s story, he did craft a fairly symbolic story about where such greedy, self-indulgent behavior could head. After all, Gatsby—the ambitious Midwesterner with a knack for personal reinvention—ends up murdered by a blue-collar automechanic while kicking back at his personal pool, which was likely funded by his illegal prohibition money. A quick study of Great Gatsby quote supports this idea that such by-any-mean-necessary success and selfishness was paving a tragic road that led one only back to where they started. The novel ends with: “Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter – to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther…and one fine morning–So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” (9.149-151) Always reaching for the stars—or for that matter, the highly symbolic green light of money and envy—we cannot only escape our humble beginnings, but we also can no longer believe America is the land of opportunities where anyone can flourish if they work hard and do right. Especially since the most successful man in the novel got to the top illegally and still wound up dead.

So is the case for Steinbeck’s tale of the small-but-smart George and the large-but-dumb Lennie, two mismatched partners in crime—quite literally—who constantly talk about their dream of owning their own ranch, being masters of themselves and their own domain. Of course, it being the Great Depression and all, the chances of getting that, in addition to all the bunnies that sweet Lennie can pet, are pretty slim. But their aspirations is actually more about attaining the American Dream than it is bunny-petting. The work-hard-and-do-right method no longer exists in the novel’s financially strained world. It’s proven pretty much futile, thanks to the “Black Tuesday” crash that put an end to economic prosperity that defined the 1920s and The Great Gatsby.

Both novels end with uncertainty about the future and whether the American Dream is more dream than reality. While they are no dystopian drama like Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World in which the future is a sterilized world devoid of any individualism or personal dreams, both books equally paint a bleak picture of their respective America’s present and future.

When you buy something, that does’nt work, before trowing it away, make some photos!

This is my first try with my new extension tubes, that allow me to approach with the 70-200 to almost 10cm, instead 150cm (4inch/60inch)!

You will notice much "dust" on the wheel. Well, it was very hard to getting rid of it, i think there was a static charge. And then i found the dust just interesting

Strobist info:
Room was completely dark and i "painted" the subject with a hand held torch.
