Subject:Do a Panel at FCN ?
Time:6:25 am.
Hey FCN is rapidly approaching and I was wondering if people would be interested in me hosting a round table discussion of photo ideas, techniques, equipment and other things there at the con.

If there is a specific topic(s) to cover throw it out so I know what people would be interested in. But this would be more dynamic.

Of course if someone else is doing that I would be just willing to go there myself :)


Second -
I plan in Detroit to go to places outside the con. If people have suggestions I would like to hear. But I do plan to go to the Detroit Zoo.

If people want to join me please let me know I love to go with other people so I can learn and improve my skills.

Subject:Is this thing on
Time:3:22 pm.
Mood:Silly.
Wow forgot about my livejournal account. It's still a nice thing to have but well been too busy to use it or even read my friends entries.

It's not like I've been using MySpace or FaceBook.

I'm on twitter of course at hyperyote twitter but nothing more interesting than that.

Subject:Not talking much and next step
Time:11:10 am.
Hi there.

Most people think I am dead mostly because well I havn't gotten back to using live journal at home/work.

For those people haven't kept up with me my picture posting at Kurst Hyperyote Web Site Photography Section still going strong.

I'm now struggling with XMAS idea for my Canon camera. I kind of want to get it a new treat to help improve my photography. I have right now a Super Zoom Tamron AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC, a prime lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM and the "kit" lens EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. I do love my Tamron it's nice having a wide range on the lens, Image Stablization in a lens helps, but it's very soft on the upper range.

While they are doing the purpose I think I either need to get a lower range (like a 10-18 zone), a even wider super zoom (the Tamron AF18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC, or something that has higher quality either in low or upper range (example canon 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS or canon 70-200 F/4L) . I seem to take a lot of pics in the 150-300 range so it might be interesting to get something there. Since money is tight I am not going to be spending a thousand on a lens or accesories.

Heck I might be good and shoudln't upgrade.

Subject:Little Big Planet PreOrder Code - UGH
Time:7:47 am.
Wonderful

Gamestop (Eb games/etc) didn't send me a pre-order code for Little Big Planet. After calling them on it they were like "well it was for a limited time and if you don't have it by now so sorry..." great.....

So if any body has an extra code or is going to their local US gamestop/ebgames please ask them if they have an extra preorder code it would be very appreciative. It's not like i didn't preorder the game!

But still I have to plan that Kratos is out of my reach...... Damn it....

If this is the worse thing that happens to me this week I should be happy.

Subject:Another month another convention.. Oh wait this is WORK!
Time:5:33 pm.
Some of you may know that I am going to Vegas in the future.

Well the odd thing is this is a fully paid full work conference and exhibition. AKA convention.

Because of all the sci-fi/fantasy conventions I have been doing for 20+ years planning that is almost the same thing.

It follows the basic format.

Pre convention mixer - dance (WEEE), then a few stragling programs before the opening cerimonies and then BOOM everything going on most of the time 20 events in the same hour with at least 5 you want to see ;). Then at night private parties and the mid convention night center show - usually around some sort of comedy and the event itself. Combine that with the exhibit hall(dealer room) with a dealer for every 15 people with hours that conicide with major events making sure you can't see them all. PLUS - Post con closing and stragling events

I have books and paper out plotting my convention my co-worker who asked if I went to this convention before because I just SEEM to know what to look for, where to go, and how to schedule time for events.

But never been there... So this will be fun.... I hope. Well at least they are paying for everything ;)

Subject:Well hit 200
Time:11:08 pm.
Mood: accomplished.
Gah - been fighting a comic template took a good break and now...

Hit 200 pictures in my gallery one of my first picture that I took is the 200th picture Higher Power always makes me feel when I look at it one of my top pictures.


You can see my current set at Photography Nature on my site.


I do have a few pictures up on Fur Affinity under Kurst and so far the feedback has been decent. While I don't expect much like a real photo site or something it's just nice to see a few people looking at it.

Thanks for the support and real fluffy life stuff soon!

Subject:Experimenting
Time:1:10 am.
Mood: amused.
Well I am experimenting

As you know my own home page at Hyperyote.com has been getting updates at a good clip in the Photography section. I'm surprised it is only 194 pictures up there. But I should hit 200 before the end of this month. Which seems to be a lot but I'm sure compared to most people's site it's not even a drop in a bucket.

Since the goal of most of these pictures is helping out artists and other admires of art I decided maybe I should make a Fur Affinity account located at http://www.furaffinity.net/user/kurst/. I am putting up a few pictures there and seeing if people accept it and would like to see more there. Mind you I would probably not put most of my pictures up there just a few - since it seems the site frowns on using it to hold pictures.

It just I want my goal to help out friends and artists and this may be a good way to do it.

Opinions or thoughts are welcome.

Subject:Wile E. Slips Off of Me :(
Time:11:36 pm.
Mood:Upset.
Horror to Horror -

All my pairs of Wile E. Coyote boxers slip off of me now :( They don't fit any more :( It's not fun when you feel the coyote slipping down your pants :(

Now the big problem is Warner Brothers stores don't exist any more and Wile E. is treated like a 3rd world cartoon character.

So time to search ebay and other places to get some yote to put on...

*Sigh*

We are always looking for new comics and ideas to publish with doing a more aggressive release and scheduling in the future we are going to be needing more exciting original content.

Subject:Week is going
Time:7:50 am.
May is the busy month I am seeing that!

Who Watching Who

Work is going insane - in a good way for work For me it keeps me WAY busy.

For my real life stuff the good news is that I am still going to Wisconsin to visit family this weekend that should be fun. I plan to go to the NEW Zoo while I am there if I am lucky an animal MAY BE walking while we are there. Unfortunately we are probably going later in the day than the morning.

I am also working on comics - yes you know COMICS this week. The final PUSH before printing for Anthrocon is going on at that is consuming my time. Lots of fun with that.

In convention planing *GAH* got the Anthrocon zooming in. We are trying to pull ourselves together to do something for the con but we had a lot of things conspire.

Have something major to say about Anthrocon but that is coming up soon.

Anyways my goal of 30 pictures posted in my Photography Gallery will happen. Since a few are not that “great quality” wise I am posting a few more to make it up. Tonight will be canine picture night

Subject:He Just Wants His Sandwhich
Time:7:36 am.
At work my supervisor that hired me is leaving. Hopefully not permanently but at least for a month. What she is doing is trying to launch her new company and she is going to China to look at building her dream products. So If she comes back she will be in a more "lower end" part-time position. Unfortunately she was one of the reasons I went to that place. Fortunately the place rocks. So I think people are going to be trying to make sure I am happy the next few weeks which will be flipping annoying....

About two weekends ago I was at the Minnesota Zoo (the people that help fund WolfQuest: Amethyst Mountains Deluxe Edition) with my good friend yarrick. I know that's hard to believe but it was true I was at the zoo!

While we are there we went over at the mexican wolves exhibit. I was letting Yarrick borrow my camera at the time and we were both observing the wolves.

The mexican wolves were particular active that day - walking pacing getting up, sitting down, some interactions with the environment. When a little kid making lots of noises and waving little arms came close to the window. Now with the way the glass was I thought you couldn't see but one of the wolves walked by the window and stopped.

The wolf looked into the window.
The little child making little noises moved and held out his sandwich.
The wolf started to turn away and then leaped at the glass pounding on it with his front feet. Jaws snarling and snapping he would land and then get on his hind paws and literally smack his forward paws forward as high as he can into the glass. His muddy paws smearing up the glass.

The kid didn't know what to make out of it. The mother watching in confused look.

The wolf continue to do that as the kid held out his sandwich making noises of confusion. The mother then has a epiphany I guess.

"He just wants your sandwich" she keeps repeating to the boy. The boy then puts it away and the wolf still continues. The boy moves to a different window to the right and the wolf follows tries to gnaw at the frame at the structure and then wood in front of it. All the while the kid making noises somewhat confused noises.

Eventually the mother stopped teasing the wolf by taking out her "sandwich" aka the little boy out of the gazebo as soon as the boy was out of ear and visual shot. *Snap* he went back to his ways. It was amazing to watch the behavior.

I asked Yarrick if I could have the picture to work on and if he could allowed me to do my normal touch ups and make it my own derivative work. He agreed to and this is my version of the picture he took with my camera. I figure in a few more weeks he will have his version up.

Just Want My Sandwhich

Now can't we allow this wolf to get his sandwich?

Subject:Okay more active than i thought
Time:10:07 am.
Well lets see schedule. This weekend other than practicing camera work. I am working on RPG and comics.

Next weekend Coffee show. Then a break. Then the three day local picnic event. So that covers my whole weekend with event activities and panels. Then the week after is Werepuppy's GOH. And then the moth is over.

Looking at that I was TEMPTED to visit family next month but I am going to push it back to June before con. Lots of running around. Hey you got to keep busy!

The posting a picture a day hasn’t lost moment yet to me. I doubt I will be able to keep up. I am going to try to actually make sure I pick pictures I like not just filler. Of course some will be more likable than others but hey I am going to be moving forward.

Subject:TV falling onto Wii and other stuff
Time:7:19 am.
Mood: happy.
Wasn't having that great of a day yesterday. I kept on dropping stuff or things kept falling down. For example I tried to move my 32" television in the living room. Mind you most people are thinking flat panel. WRONG - Sony Trinitron tube. Huge SONY TRINITRON TUBE. As "luck" would have it as I started to move the beast my right hand actually slightly gave out. The whole thing crashed on top of my arm and Wii. Both took a few scraches and bruises but I think long term me and my Wii will be fine.

But yeah I could go on and whine about yesterday and the day before but instead here is a Omega Mexican Wolf.

Rest For the Omega

Subject:Why?!?! Geek pants
Time:10:18 am.
Mood: shocked.

I know that I had THAT problem. I'm at a lan party and I brought everything except my pants. HAPPENS all the time.

I could make more jokes but my mind broke.

Subject:My Apartment complex is on fire - Updated
Time:7:20 am.
Mood:Happy.
WOO HOO MY apartment complex is on fire! Looks the apartment 2 under me is on fire! Way Coolness! More later.

Updated - It was weird I was walking around my own compartment smelling something. IT was strong enough that I thought I turned on like the pizza over or the stove and left it on near some plastic. So I looked at it and after a moment the though the complex could be on fire. I was like nah that would never happen. Like clockwork the alarm rang. I knew that this could be a real fire. In a moment if I could only have 2 things in my life what would it be. My laptop bag which has - A) My laptop and my con badges. I then also grab my camera bag. I slid shoes on without sock and put on a jacket just in case. I went into the hallway into hazy smoke room. I realize at this point it's serious. Worse case I could jump out the third story window if it was impassible but I easily made it out.

The complex is about 1 1/2 blocks from the fire station which is manned 24/7. So the response was near immediate. The place was cleared out in minutes allowing the fire department to putz with the downstairs apartment.

At first there was a drove of fireman running into the place with axes and hoses. Yelling and screaming. You could see the fire men at the truck ready at any second to turn on the hose. But after a few minutes they put away their axes and hoses fire back in control. So the fire wasn't major.

After about 2 hours I was left back in my apartment at it's worse has some smokiness already I don't notice it from the overnight air out.

So other than some time no real long term results from this. Just thankful it didn't get bad.

Time:5:20 am.
Mood: amused.
Hello,

I really don't have much time to mention about this but I am going to start more or less putting pictures up on my website. I will try to put up at least once a week and try not make it a chore.

These are going to be mostly pictures that I take outside. I will more or less categorize it as I go.

But I got cleaning to do less talk so I should give you the first picture.

Chilling Out

More will be added here as time go by Photography Page. As time goes by.
