Charlie Don't Surf - Test Flight of ZX4 Attack Chopper

Stopped by Skies of Tomorrow to see if anyone was flying and ran into Suzi Tauber and Lord Lisle. Mr Lisle was kind enough to take me for a ride in his Battle Bug, a very nice Steampunk inspired aircraft and well...Its just cute! He was also kind enough to give me a landmark to a very nice aircraft. The Fokker ER.1. To the right I'm photoed before my first test flight. Thanks Mr. Lisle for the tip on a wonderful, fun to fly aircraft. More photos here.

Being the recipient of even more good karma, Miss Tauber was kind enough to copy of her ZX4 Attack Chopper.

Below, a video of walkaround, engine start up, flight, engine shutdown. Thanks again to Lord Lisle and Suzi Tauber for the cool aircraft and fun afternoon of flying.

Second Life Surf Video

Just a quickie video I put together featuring the Hawaii Five-O theme by the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Great song by one of my favorite musicians. And oh! I do a bit of surfing as well. Thanks again Tiz! Enjoy.

I'm going surfin, I'm going surfin

My lovely friend Tiziana Corleone was kind enough to show me one of the best surfing spots in Second Life. Its...wait, well its over by the thing, next to the who whatsit.

I'd like to make one thing clear. She was surfing. What I was doing I think can best be described as floundering. Pictured to the left are the three seconds when I was actually
upright on my board. Lots of fun, I may have a new hobby. Thanks T!

Tribute to The King of Cool

Goofing about with Microsoft Moviemaker and a few images I had from Second Life. I put together this little tribute to Steve McQueen, the King of Cool. I know, your thinking...

"Don't you have something better to do with your time? You could be feeding the homeless,teaching the blind to see, helping a illiterate person across the street."

Your right. I'm shallow, what can I say. Second Life is just more fun than pre -chewing a homeless persons food. Sorry, I'll try to do better. I swear, really, honest.

Have to run, airships to fly, funky boots to buy. Now go check out my video.
