From Angie's photos of my wedding
there's a sequence of four photos where everyone's holding still except me. Of
course I turned this into an animated GIF using GIF Make
, to produce my animated wedding GIF
. I don't embed the image in the HTML because it is really irritating.

"What You See is What They Get: Protecting users from unwanted use of microphones, cameras, and other sensors," by Jon Howell and Stuart Schechter.
"We introduce the sensor-access widget, a graphical user interface element that resides within an application's display. The widget provides an animated representation of the personal data being
collected by its corresponding sensor, calling attention to the application's attempt to collect the data."
Not sure how well that scales...

Netflix lets you watch a subset of their movies online via their website and a subset of those movies are available to watch on the Xbox 360's Netflix app. so its not always easy to find movies to
watch on Xbox 360. Yet, I regularly see my Xbox friends using the Netflix app and its a shame they didn't make an easy way to share movie recommendations with your friends. Instead we must share
movie recommendations the old fashioned way. Here's the movies I've found and enjoyed on my 360.
You don't have to be a stoner to enjoy this humorous and dramatic satire featuring a widow trying to raise her children and deal pot in suburbia.
Avatar The Last Airbender
An American animated series that's an amalgamation of various Asian art, history, religion, etc. that maintains a great story line.
If you enjoyed Paranoia Agent you'll enjoy this movie in the same animation style and by the same director and
writer, Satoshi Kon. Its like a feature length version of a Paranoia Agent episode in which a dream machine lets outsiders view one's dreams but eventually leads to blurring the dreams and
Grindhouse Planet Terror
I didn't see either of the Grindhouse movies when they first came out, but of the two, Planet Terror is the more humorous and exciting gore filled parody.
A refreshing romantic comedy that still has a few of the over played tropes but is easy to enjoy despite that.
The King of Kong
A hilarious documentary on the struggle between the reigning champ hot-sauce salesman and the underdog Washington state high school science teacher to obtain the Donkey Kong world record high
score. After watching, checkout this interview with the creators of the movie and the
I've mentioned Primer before, but I put it on
here again because its really good and you still haven't seen it, have you?

A flash animated advertisement that starts as a regular website but turns into a kind of Rube Goldberg. I especially appreciate the automated scrolling.

The promotional video for this wheel feels like the beginning of a porn video. Images are delivered wirelessly to the wheels but the site doesn't say what protocol. I really hope they didn't consider

Some interesting animated videos created for the Zune Ad campaign but created by actual artists.

Thanks to Netflix
I've been able to enjoy several movies that I'd never heard of.
is a classic PI film set in a modern high school. Its fun figuring out which high school students correspond to which film noir archetypes.
is a sci-fi movie but it doesn't focus on action or effects. Its like watching an excellent Twilight Zone episode. I hate to describe this any
further for fear of giving something away.
The Amazing Screw-On Head
is an animated version of the one shot comic
. It feels like
the 1800s precursor to the The Venture Bros.
and stars Screw-On Head, a steam-punk robot head thing and Abe Lincoln's top spy for occult
The Quiet Earth
is the movie version of the book about a man who awakes one day to find himself alone(... or is he?) It was made in the 80s and in
Australia but don't hold that against it.
