Unity 3D Basix – Part 1

Welcome to my Unity 3D Tutorial.  I’m writing this to get folks up and running as quickly as possible with some of the simple things like setting up a project with all of the basic tools to create basic terrain, objects, lights, a skybox and some basic unityscript.  Then we’ll work on some of the more esoteric topics like animated skyboxes (occlucding clouds) with day-night transitions, realistic terrain using height maps from GoogleEarth, and seamless transitions from scene-to-scene.  I’m also going to include how to extract and import assets from … Continue reading

Grand Lenormand – Video Update

I’ve been working on a video ‘companion guide’ to the translations I posted over the last year or so.  I’ve just completed the ‘Clubs’ videos and hope to start on the suit of Diamonds today or tomorrow.  I’ve added information about the ‘Gold Stars’ (which are usually astrological-planetary glyphs), and I also talk about the geomantic glyphs that occur under some of the ‘Letter Codes.’ Thanks for watching, and I hope your September is off to a great start! Enjoy! … Continue reading

Moved and Mostly Settled

The move went off without too many hitches a couple weeks ago.  We did have one mishap, I left my diabetic cat’s insulin in the fridge, but I was able to procure another bottle at my destination so it wasn’t a huge emergency.  She did have an ‘accident’ on the drive though, so the last hour of the four hour drive wasn’t pleasant for either one of us 🙁   For those not ‘in-the-know,’ diabetes makes cats (and humans) ‘flood the litter-box’ when their blood sugar is high.  But one high glucose … Continue reading

Upcomming Lull in Activity

I’m transitioning to a new job in another state, so I will be busy over the next couple of weeks packing and moving, and then after that, learning the new job and unpacking & trying to settle in. So there may not be much activity here or on my YouTube channel until around mid-September. If I can get situated sooner, I’ll try to get posting sooner – hope all is going well in your world! Enjoy!

Portable Photo/Video Studio

I’ve transported this set-up a couple of times up to my sister’s home, 230 miles away.  It all goes in 4 or 5 bags that easily stow in the back of my “extended cab” T100 (Toyota pick-up) – along with the rest of my travel gear, including my clothes, laptop bag, and three cat-carriers.  The only thing I put in the bed of the truck is the cat-box wrapped in a large garbage bag. I’ve also made a 4-part YouTube series covering this set-up. The first, and largest item is my Backdrop … Continue reading
