Hot And Cold

It’s over 100 degrees here in West Covina, California, while it’s only 70-something on the beach in Huntington Beach, and this is a big problem!

My Phone Is Still Dying

Unfortunately, my phone is still dying, and I fear it will be totally dead any time, now.

The video on the right shows me moving the position of the sun in the Google Earth VR app in Huntington Beach, California, using our Oculus Rift.

Airshow Over Huntington Beach

I’m going to ignore the lady with the big guns while I tell you about the new airshow over Huntington Beach, California that takes place this coming weekend.
Do you think I would miss seeing this? Are you crazy?

Rules and Restrictions

I apologize if I accidentally took a picture of a hot chick in a thong bikini in this presentation, but since they are *everywhere* this summer, that’s difficult to avoid. :/ Although breaking my cubic illusion rules can cause terrible headaches or result in boring, flat images, breaking the rules at the U.S Open Of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California can be much more serious, not only in the water, but on the beach and on the trails. You bicycle riders might be as surprised as I was was to find out that you don’t have the right-of-way on the trails. As far as my cubic illusion rules are concerned, after a few months of nail-biting and head-scratching, I finally cracked the 360 degree 3D depth nut and drove the nails into its coffin, and the magical amount of net deviation can be observed in these four shots: 1/4 of the normal amount of 3.3% (1/30), which is precisely .825%. This four-shot slideshow plays for three minutes, so you have plenty of time to rotate it and look around. There is no audio in this one.

Not Everyone Watches The Surfing Competition

Opening day of the U.S. Open Of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California was busier than ever on the pier, the beach, and in the water, but not everyone was there for the surfing competition.

The construction project for the U.S. Open Of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California is a massive undertaking, as you can see in the two photos in this scene. Rotate the view to look at them. Also, killing at least two birds with one stone, as I typically do in my YouTube videos, I’m playing with the h264 video quality settings, to get the best image quality possible with the smallest file size and rendering times.
