Tech Integration in a Steampunk Musical

The Peace Ray above and the audience dancing to the sounds of Walter Sickert and the ARmy of BRoken TOys after the show.

I just saw the closing show of 28 Seeds, a steampunk musical. Telling the story of how the apocalypse happened, 28 Seeds had great music from Walter Sickert and the ARmy of BRoken TOys. Besides being lots of fun, the production did a very nice job of using tech. From the QR codes on the many monitors facing the audience and a live twitter feed that featured actors during the performance, there was quite a bit of modern tech sprinkled amongst the the more recognizable steampunk accents. Loved the brain in the tank!

Fractal Fun

After getting my computer up and running, I hadn’t installed my favorite fractal program until tonight. Unfortunately, the username and license key that I had on file did not work, so I sent an email to support. I hope to get it resolved because when I rendered my creation to disk, it had “Evaluation Copy” printed all over it. A screen capture and some other workaround later (I have not installed Photoshop yet, either), I have a very rough version of what I created.
