About a year ago, I developed a method (or methods) for artwork that combine 3D models and fractals. Because it was written a year ago, it is now a tad bit outdated (in technique and grammar). However, for the most part, it is correct and will get you going. Any modifications to the method will probably be put in this post rather than in the pdf files (sorry), though I’ll probably update them anyways.
Note that the images are specifically for Gimp 2.6 to 2.8 and Metasequoia 2.4 to 3.0 and I have no intention of updating those images for future versions of those programs.
THIS IS A VERY LONG TUTORIAL!

I don’t know about you, but I had a headache trying to change the album cover art that displays in VLC. If you recall, VLC automatically downloads cover art for your music. What you should also know is: when you save a playlist VLC CACHES THE ARTWORK! That’s really annoying when you have the WRONG album art. So in this post, I’m going to tell you how to change it. Hurray!

Fractal generators like Apophysis are quite widely used, so it may have become alittle difficult to appreciate what they do. Every once in awhile, something really stands out.
Last time I reviewed a visual novel, it was Narcissu / Narcissus by Stage Nana. Having been done professionally, it had the benefit of a good team working behind it for custom art and contributions by talented musicians. It was very kind of the company to allow the English translation to be produced and released free to the public. To date, it’s the only professionally-done visual novel for English speakers (at least, it’s the only one I know of).
Those of us working solo don’t necessarily have the luxuries of a professional team or talented artists, but that doesn’t mean something can’t be cobbled together and still provide a quality experience.
This review focuses on a visual novel created by Scope Games, which is for the most part, a single individual. After scrounging the internet for images, image templates, and songs, they pieced together this entertaining this work free for you to enjoy. Download here.
Newgrounds has definitely undergone some changes over the years. It used to be primarily for music (Newgrounds Audio Portal), but now it’s home to art and video games as well.
This is my first post on this blog using a Linux-based operating system. Currently, I’m running Linux Mint, supposedly the 4th most-used operating system in the world. I used to not think anyone but geeks used Linux OSes, but this package of software is pretty nice. I’m hoping to call this distro “home”. That’s in stark contrast to my comments about it not much more than a year earlier: “Oh isn’t that a cute OS. I’ll never install that thing on my PC”. It’s also in stark contrast to my optimism in trying a “truly” free software distro, Dynebolic. Allow me to compare experiences…
