I got reading glasses, well, progressive lenses, put it off as long as I possibly could, can make due with regular glasses, but easier at the computer and duh, reading, with these. Turning my head from left to right and right to left and everything is warping. I guess sooner or later, I'm gonna be the guy with the glasses in the straps hanging from my neck, and tilting my head down, looking at people when I talk.
I like watching landings because I like experiencing the prop blast of wind. What can I say? Didn't stick around to see who came out. It looks like I'm holding the camera steady during high frame rate, but that wind is blowing around my arms pretty good.
Went to Montreal's two well known bagel shops a couple of times. St Viateur and Fairmount. Although I've had Montreal style bagels at Black Seed Bagels in NY, wanted the real thing. Not religious about which is better, they are different. Montreal bagels are crunchier on the outside, more dense on the inside, a bit smaller, a big plus for me, cheaper, and there are some interesting types - rosemary for one. I'm not sure what seedless was. Nonetheless, I really liked them, but they're different f
Rewatching Band of Brothers, there's this scene where a CO says "Channel is socked in. No jump tonight!". Having seen BoB so many times, never bothered to look up "socked in". In context, knowing the situation, Operation Overlord, you just easily guessed D-Day was postponed because weather. But this time, I actually looked up "socked in".
Am by no means artistic, but I have fun making up t-shirts when an idea percolates. This one is in tribute to Jonny Greenwood, who recently scored Phantom Thread. The repeating note is from one of the themes used in the movie.
I thought this one would sell, but alas, no takers.
4K/HDR is better than I thought it would be.
Usually an earlier adopter regarding things tech so late to the 4K train, didn't think it would be that much of an improvement, but beginning to see more of a difference than when in the store, looking at different TVs. When you're at home, rewatching the shows you're used to seeing in HD, that's the better distinguisher. It helped that the new screen is bigger too, going to 65 from 50. Could have bought earlier, but saved a ton waiting a bit, go
Some of this is obvious for experienced players, I'll list them anyway for the benefit of those starting out. Will add as I learn/discover more.
Duh, camera angles are very important. You probably know this already, but will mention it anyway. Always bring an alignment stick, which will make pointing your camera much easier.
You may hit a cr@p shot, but video may redeem you by showing you you actually did what your instructor advised. That's a good thing, you're changing the
Not crazy about how it was named the Mario Cuomo Bridge (passed in wee hours in secret by his son), but official opening is tomorrow, in my mind, it'll be the new Tappan Zee Bridge. Maybe the Nyack - Tarrytown bridge?
Two bagels from your typical bagel shop, middle is a mini bagel from NYC's Fairway Market. Should have taken a profile photo, the bigger ones are almost twice as tall. That mini bagel is a regular bagel 25 years ago.
Disparaging remarks from some players on Sean Foley
Talk about hotels and points and yawn, boring.
No charging stations.
Momofuku here too, same as US Open (tennis).
Generally, students of the game hover around the short game area. One spectator struck up a conversation w/a player about pitching.
Haven't been to a tournament in awhile, radar everywhere.
You can park behind Starbucks, walk across the coliseum to the buses (10 minutes, just like the US Open - tennis),
It's this way, really. Before you look at the ball, right before you putt, you take a picture of the hole in your mind's eye, and when you look down at the ball, you still SEE that same image in your mind's eye. Then, as if you were looking at the hole, you putt "into" that picture in your mind's eye.
I was trying this out yesterday. Here was my step by step process
1. Take a few practice strokes next to the ball trying to feel out the putt
2. Look at the hole and try to take a mental image.
3. Set up to the ball
4. Glance back at the hole seeing the ball track into the picture
5. Putt with that intent.
Maybe it's correct?
Based on the past few days, I have learned I need to practice this putting to the picture skill.
Alternately, maybe do my long putts looking at the hole.
Also, I started picturing a picture frame at the apex of my putt. That's probably not what I'm supposed to be doing.
