Messing With the Webcam

In the midst of getting the new OilCan Drive book done and printed up for this Saturday's Free Comic Book Day I've been pulling out a lot of other ideas I've had over the years and now feel compelled to pursue.

So I've been playing around with the OilCan Drive website, getting embedded music players to work, and trying to get an online store set up so I can finally sell some of my own stuff on the web.

And yes, the first thing that will be up for sale will be the new OilCan Drive book. I figure those of you who won't be able to get to Time Warp in Boulder, CO this Saturday might like a copy too. So I am doing my best to get that set up and make it happen. It's been fun. I've found a lot of sites that I have bookmarked over the years that I am finally putting to some good use.

And I broke the computer's webcam out for another idea I have and started testing it last night. I like the way it can take black and white photos and video and I even found a time delay so I can take photos without having to keep my finger on the mouse button.

So I played around with it while I was messing with the acoustic guitar and playing some songs.

And of course, what is a fictional cartoon rock and roll band in your head worth if they don't have women in the front row flashing them. And while Monika was kind enough to give me permission to put these photos on my blog they won't be showing up on Facebook or anywhere else her Mom and family might see them anytime soon.

So, count yourself lucky.

I sure do.

Oh man! and I thought Monika was a good girl, I’m just shocked :)

You need to take that down before Manu sees it, it'll warp his mind and he'll go crazy.

Monika looks like a good girl but she has a little bit of bad girl in her somewhere.

Of course, I put this post up right before I get an email from a nine year old kid who loves my work. Now he'll probably come here and I'll get an angry letter from his Mom.

But, it's not like it's the worst thing you can see online.

Well, I think this must be taken with humour, it's just rock n' roll attitude, nothing more ! Let's say Monika plays the groopie, the mom should understand ! :) )

Doggarn it! I can not seem to get the zoom to work. I need to get a new system like Sean.

For some reason I figured out there was an HD setting on my computer's webcam. It made everything looks SO much better.

And yes, it appears chicks dig technology! ha ha
