Artwork by KevB

Click on the images to enlarge them.

A close friend of mine, Kevin Brown (he's guest posted on here before) had started a blog earlier this year to promote his artwork and skill, so just because I feel this dude deserves more attention for his art I've made this post (I was supposed to post this way earlier, but I'm a procrastinator).

Posting, I'll forever procrastinate on such a task...

A You & Me Thing - The Breakup

Since I've been neglecting this blog and I'm bored, I think it's time for some new music (well, new as long as you haven't been on the Acrylic Style site).

A rapper friend of mine teamed up with a singer I met not too long ago to make a group called A You & Me Thing, here's the first song from this project.

More fun with iFrames

Some thing that I've known for a while is that Google Buzz, Google Reader and any good RSS reader supports iframes, it's how I figured out how to embed a Google Wave within a Buzz post.

I've always thought it'd make a cool unofficial application platform in Google Buzz if the trick was mixed with Google Gadgets and Open Social but I never knew if it would work or not, mainly because I haven't tried, so here's my first attempt.

Regular Gadget

Social Gadget

(To see the social gadget test in action you must have people in your friends list in your Google contacts)

Of course this is all useless as Buzz users are Gmail users and if they wanted to run Apps/Games they could just use the feature in Gmail Labs, especially since it supports social gadgets and a canvas mode.

Maybe Google will integrate Buzz with the Gadgets feature in the future with these "GoogleMe" rumors going around.

Japanese Cartoon - Gasp [Fan Music Video]

Jovon threw this black and white music video for Japanese Cartoons "Gasp" together using scenes from the 1949 public domain film, The Crooked Way.

Turns out the video was so chilly that it got posted on the LupEND blog.

Wave embed test

Just testing to see if iframes work in Blogger RSS feeds to embed a Wave within Buzz.


To embed a Wave in Buzz use this.

<iframe frameborder="no" align="center" src="[[LALALA]]&bgcolor=white&color=black&font=Verdana&fontsize=10px&embed_header=false&embed_footer=false&embed_toolbar=false" style="width: 100%; height: 600px; border: none;" height="600px"></iframe>

Replace where it says "[[LALALA]]" with your Wave ID, and put this code into a blog post, then share it to Buzz with Google Reader or the Connected Sites feature and you're done.

Chrome Web Store

Well this just fixed a lot of problems with Chrome OS, I wonder if there'll be an in-app payment platform as well, and how this will handle stuff like piracy and support for other browsers.

Site design

I've decided that I'm going to change the site design again.

I feel that this one doesn't really represent whatever The Creative Procrastinators really are, especially when it comes to site design.

Plus I'm really inspired by sites like and that are a bit CSS3 heavy.

I don't exactly have an idea of what I'm going to do (I've a few small ideas though), so I'm really just going to go on a whim with this and see where I get with it.

One thing though is that I'm keeping the logo, and my first step is to create the logo completely in code.

Game Maker on PSP

Wow, I remember when I used to toy around with this back in middle school. Mark Overmars certainly has gotten far with the project (I've heard that there is a Mac version on the horizon too).

Finally the XNA is proving itself

I think they should merge the XNA and Silverlight projects, both run on .NET, it'd bring more developer support to the XNA (being that it's limited to C# right now), it'd bring in more Silverlight developers, it'd bring in more Silverlight installations, and every device that has the XNA can run Silverlight (all but the Zune HD have both).

Windows Phone 7 Series

For the second time in my life I can say I'm actually interested in Windows Mobile (the first time was because it was the only worthwhile mobile OS at the time).

Open Pandora booting Android

Honestly I think this thing should've run Android from the start, maybe dual booting the Pandora OS along side it and customizing the Android OS to look like the Pandora OS so that most people can't tell the difference.

Well now we know what Monolith Soft has been doing under Nintendo after that Disaster game (don't mind the name on the video, the title was recently changed).

Augmented (hyper)Reality: Domestic Robocop

Augmented (hyper)Reality: Domestic Robocop from Keiichi Matsuda on Vimeo.

I could see Augmented Reality really taking off when display technology advances to having completely transparent screens and when camera tech gets faster, where you can just point the device at something and have it start doing something instantly and seamlessly.
