  1. You have a spoiler in mind, Brian?


    I love the cobra style. I really like my model vehicle without a spoiler but it also always feels like something is missing, so the cobra style spoiler is perfect for that, but they're no longer sold to the best of my knowledge. So I guess I'll go with something like a GT spoiler.


    With the exhaust, I want to get a deep throaty sound as best as I can for a V6, which I think requires changing the headers aside from a dual exhaust system


    Here are better before and after pics showing the entire body

  2. Hey, shabba or Brian, I'm told there's a lot of "chromatic aberration" in my macros. I'm using a cheapo macro adapter. Other than upgrading, there's not much I can do to fix that, eh? :(


    It usually happens when certain wavelengths can't reach through to the sensor or are focused at different angles.


    How to prevent it via camera:


    • Try not to put yourself into high contrast situations (objects against a bright background).
    • Tone down your aperture.
    • Don't use your lens or adapter to the max it can go, most photos are said to be best in the middle. If you have a 70-200mm lens, 135mm will give better results than 200mm.
    • Super zoom lenses aren't the greatest of lenses, go for a prime lens.


    You can also find tutorials for fixing it via photoshop or other software online.

  3. So I've been back in school for about a month now for carpentry and I'm enjoying the fuck out of it. Finally something I actually am excited to wake up for, instead of putting up with the constant drudgery.


    Either way, here's a custom aderondac chair I've been working on for the last 3 days. I'd give it one or two more days before she's finished.


    I'd sit on it


    Congrats on finding something you enjoy doing each day, it must be freeing finally finding something like that. It's a great trade too. Hope it works out for you. Post the finished results.

  4. Second-to-last pic, is that a sunset reflecting off water, a distorted fire, or sunlight through a tree?? My eyes are seeing all of that at once.

    EDIT: NVM, switched to light skin and saw the branches. Great fucking pic.

    Thanks man, nothing better than being in the right place at the right time. I wish I had my camera last night. The moon was orange with Venus and Jupiter in clear view right next to it.

  5. Now I'm curious about what's in the mystery cream filling ( ;)) - maybe ask your grandma which bakery she gets it from and see if an online description is available...maybe it's a pastry cream (more like a vanilla pudding) instead of whipped cream? I tend to avoid dairy and eggs when I can because of family food allergies, but certain things can be adapted without any trouble.


    Now I'm hungry...again... :P


    I'll find out and post soon

  6. Who knew rhubarb was a love-it-or-hate-it food? It must be like cilantro, where some people taste it differently than others. The more you know!




    I've scoured all my recipe sources over the years for a good blueberry pie recipe, one that doesn't turn into dark blue go-to is an open faced tart, 3 cups of berries cook in the tart shell, then it gets finished with 2 more cups of fresh berries pressed in afterwards. No room for crumb topping. :)


    Blueberries will be in season in another couple of months, I'll tempt you with pics then. :)


    Sounds great! I don't know exactly how they do it, but there's a place here that makes the best blueberry pie I've ever had. It was the blueberry filling but also a whipped cream type filling. It has a different taste than usual whipped cream though. My grandma gets it for my birthday each year. Either that or blueberry crumb would have to be my absolute favorite type of pie. Never had anything else that matched it.
