The Illusion of Success – Five Truths Revealed

I’ve been kicking’ around this blog post for a while, but then I saw some updates from Justin Seeley & Glyn Dewis this week that motivated me to put hands to keyboard.

How many times have you heard or even thought the following to yourself,

“Why can’t I be lucky like [name]?”

“I want to be like [someone you admire], they catch all the breaks.”

“How did an idiot/moron/jackass like [name] get that promotion?”

“I’d trade places with [coworker/manager] in a heartbeat.”

AJ Wood Jump Split Kick

Fun at the 2012 Dallas Comic Con

A spur of the moment decision led the family & I to the Dallas Comic Con over the weekend. I always forget to mark it on my calendar, which inevitably leaves me ill-prepared & without a camera at the event. Yes, I could have used my iPhone, but the visuals demand a better lens. It was jammed packed compared to last year’s convention, and I expect the trend to continue in 2013. Captain America seemed to be the hero of choice, although I expected to see more Trekkies given Patrick Stewart was on hand to sign autographs and answer questions.

For me, the highlight of this year’s event was the Big Freeze a 360˚ Photo Booth provided by You+Dallas. The setup uses roughly 48 DSLR cameras simultaneously triggered to render the 360 animated effect. I chatted briefly with one of the operators, and much of the tech used was designed by You+Dallas. After watching all the sample images from Comic Con participants I had to give it a try.
