What's That Animation?

Remember from a few years ago, there was a stop-animation video that used corn candy and popcorn, and other food stuff to show an airplane bombing a field? It had artillery fire and other stuff too, it was a while back... I can't find it, can you help me?

Luba Lukova Ripped

Not like you're thinking... her work was blatantly ripped off:

http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/215335_10150147800822011_660912010_6680599_6632078_n.jpg

From Luba's fb page:
"I just received a design catalog from the current Agitators of Conscience show in Spain, curated by Ofelio Serpa. I saw inside this book cover by Spanish designer Pep Carrió. Mr. Carrio has directly copied the idea, the symbols, and whole parts of the composition of my poster. I drew all these icons by hand and they are not clip art images that can be recycled. I wonder where is the "design conscience" of Mr. Carrió?"

For the record, anyone wishing to email the offending designer, and ask him about said similarities, this is his email -

media woes

thanks in advance for any help. I'm not exactly a web designer but I'm trying to put a site up for a musician friend of mine. I've modified a template using dreamweaver and it works out on mac. I wanted users to click on the play button next to the albums to hear the song sample. But when the site is opened in chrome on a PC, all the media starts playing at once. Not sure if there's an obvious fix to this or what—any ideas? Thanks again for your help... http://www.mybrownmusic.com

DVD Studio Help

I'm new at this. Trying to burn a short film created in FCP using DVD Studio. I'm exporting/importing everything the way I think I should be, but every time I burn a DVD the dvd player says: disc not recognized. It does play in some apple computers though. It's a HDV 1080i file.
Anyone else experience anything else like this? Is there a max. bit rate for your regular DVD or DVD player I should be staying under?

A Question of

my wife and I are friends with a couple whom the husband of (he's a wedding DJ) received this email from my wife:

"...wanna hang out tonight? we can stay in and cook and drink beer and watch family guy reruns or we can ~walk~ to all the bars. lemme know. i dunno what time your wedding gig is on saturday, but you're welcomed to crash here if you want."

The circumstances: We're all friends and free from suspicion. The email is sent as I 'm on a weekend sailing trip and his wife is out state. There have never been any transgressions.

Just as a test of my own objectivity, I ask:
Is this email suggestive,—or is it free from offense?

is it old or just me?

I'm 32. 32 is not that old in the lifespan of things. I don't know how old I was when my point of reference shifted and I started looking at "old" as what happens to a person around lower to mid 60's. I think it was in my twenties... When I was a child (read: pre-pubescent) I thought 20 was old, 30 might as well have been 80. Now, 32 is not that old. I imagine my point of reference will have shifted again by the time I arrive to my late 40's.

My point? I work at a University. I recently had a rare and great time acting in a play with the Theater department. I got to know the cast over the 8 weeks of rehearsal and by the end of it I was among people I like and trust—All of them college age, early 20's mostly.

Now, I'm not saying I'm old. I feel like I'm still a child, but after my experience with this generation—which is a couple of demographics away from my own—I felt like I might be "old" for the first time in my adult life. Until recently, I've never felt even a little out of touch with the culture of youth. And as a graphic designer, I feel like I have an edge on "staying tuned in"; (staying abreast of mass trends being a part of my job description). But here I am. I'm a dad, father of two little kids and working in an office at an institution... I may not be old, but I'm not tragically hip either.

This isn't a complaint, it's just an announcement. And it's not about the whole "you're only as old as you think you are" thing either. It's just that it hit me: I'm not the youngest one in the room anymore—in linear time-years or even in the way I think.

How will this affect my design approach? Have any of you got this feeling before?
