My Judgment Day May 21 Billboard Photo On

Judgement Day is less than 3 weeks away, May 21st, according to Harold Camping's sign over Budget Copy in Cambridge.

My "Judgement Day May 21 Billboard Over Budget Copy in Cambridge, MA" photo makes the website.

Slate calls it "clearly photoshopped." It isn't, but it is post-processed (with the Camera+ iPhone app) heightening the contrast on the clouds. It's a cellphone photo, so it obviously won't stand for much post-processing, but those clouds were really there. That's pretty much been our weather around here for as long as I can remember. It's photo #2 in the slideshow. I'm also credited with the next image, too, but I've never been to Lebanon, so obviously that's a mistake.

I guess we'll find out this weekend if Mr. Camping's math and biblical scholarship skills have improved any since 1994.

"Thumbosis" Our 48 Hour Mockumentary Now Available Online

Is today's younger generation all thumbs?

A short mockumetary.

"Best of Boston" winner at the 2011 48 Go Green Film Competition. It was a Top 16 Finalist and screened at NAB on April 13, 2011 in Las Vegas.

I blogged about this earlier.

A mockumentary with the assigned theme of "Save the Next Generation."
Required character: Morgana Johnson, Ph.D.
Assigned prop: keys
Required line of dialogue: "When does she arrive?"

Thumbosis Extremis is what happens to young people who, perhaps already debilitated by Nature Deficit Disorder, overindulge in typing, texting and endless video game playing, rendering the digits of their fingers virtually useless from overuse.

You can also watch the film on 48 Go Green's official site:
