Greetings All. It’s nearly Halloween and time for some scary and fun stuff. My favorite author in the horror genre is Stephen King, the prolific scribe of various novels and stories including: Carrie, The Shining, Salem’s Lot, and The Dead Zone. Just about all his works are good reads but they contain a fair amount of violence and gore, so be wary if you’ve a sensitive disposition. If you want a good dose of laughter to offset some of the seasonal chills then find a copy of “Young Frankenstein” on DVD. In Young Frankenstein Mel Brooks has created a near-cult classic that is still remarkable for its comedic timing and slapstick sensibility. You can view the IMDB entry on Young Frankenstein here.
The picture of the week was created using Anim8or, a free 3D animation program. I’ll have a more complete review of Anim8or in a future post. You can check out the Wikipedia article about Anim8or here.

The loops of the week were created with Orion Pro.
The website of the week is C.K. Lester’s Euphoria site. Euphoria is an interpreted programming language with a small but dedicated following. It’s become my primary language for personal projects, and has even found it’s way into some applications for work. The Wikipedia entry for Euphoria is here.
Send your comments and feedback and I’ll read it all and respond to some of it. Bye for now!
