Random Things & Freebie Friday: Selena Gomez & Hipster Scenes


MUSIC

I know, this one kinda freaked me out too. And I know talent comes in all shapes & sizes so I dont hate but a part of me just really has a hard time relating to a song sung by Disney star. It's hard for me to focus on the beauty of the song without getting distracted by the fact she was a Wizard on a show my friends daughter used to obsess over. Maybe it's because it makes me feel old. Miley Cyrus makes me feel old. She was a goofy girl barely through puberty & now she's my age (since Im forever staying 23 of course).

So anyways I was watching Photography related Youtube videos & this popped up a suggested video & I have to say that I really appreciate the beauty of the way it was shot. And so from a cinematography viewpoint....I love. I don't know who made the video & Im too lazy to google it, but really, great job on creating something that balances simple, sexy, heartfelt, classy so beautifully.......(Oh & the song isn't so bad either)





COOL STUFF & TECHNOLOGY:


Now this next thing is at first glance pretty awesome & comes off as more of a novelty but upon further inspection you realize that aside from becoming Iron Man on the weekend you could actually use this in practical situations such as:

1. Home Intruders. Why fumble with mace or a stun gun when you could throw flames instead? My suggestion? Start speaking weird & commence shooting flames at the intruder whilst looking possessed....Im pretty sure they will take a hike.

2. Feeling a mid life crisis or a need to do something exhilarating in life? Maybe sky diving's not your thing but you want to step outside the box? Well, how about a good old fashion round of tag except step it up a notch by making it flame tag. Forget paint ball guns, those are outdated technology. With flames you'll know when those cheating friends of your have been hit.




PHOTOGRAPHY RELATED:

Step outside the box & try something creative with this tutorial from Phlearn using sparklers. Gels on your lights is a really simple way to add depth & creativity to your photos. 





FREEBIE:


This free art scenes generator from Noupes is about as good as it gets & they're giving the lower res version of it away from free. Worth noting, is that the high-res version is only $30 & worth just buying if you use this sort of thing for your designs or site. With all the time they put into it & the fact that it truly is one of the best ones I've seen with tons of variety & it's super customizable....$30 is a steal & worth supporting the creators.
