Film photography website get!
I'm a film photographer based in NYC and I finally bit the bullet, scanned a load of negatives, bought a URL + hosting, and put up a website. Mostly black and white (some color), mostly medium format (some 4x5 large format or 35mm), in a couple different genres. There's some moody street work, a fun hot sauce expo, NYC Pride 2016, and much more for your delectation. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Rassler, an 8-bit pro wrestling RPG
A retro-inspired pro wrestling role playing game I've been working on, set in the territorial era of pro wrestling (the 60s-80s more or less). It's pay-what-you-can and will be forever.

Mk Mrc Grt Gn! A Disemvoweling Twitter Bot
Inspired by a tweet from (metafilter's own) Maciej Cegłowski, I made a dumb Twitter bot using Glitch one night that disemvowels 45's mouthspew on Twitter as if he were a dumb troll trying his best to annoy the mods. The resulting tweets are collected at @Dsmvwld_PTS.

"Radical Technologies: The Design of Everyday Life"
It is with the greatest pleasure that I share with you Radical Technologies, the book referred to here, and for so much of which I'm indebted to conversations that have happened here.

I trained an A.I. to Ask Metafilter...
Last time, I trained an LSTM neural network to generate British placenames. This time, I trained one on Ask Metafilter questions to see if the questions it generated might tell us anything about humanity. (Spoilers: yes, of course it did).

AI Generated Movie Posters
I built this website to generate movie posters using a neural network. The titles and tag-lines are generated by the AI, everything else is somewhat designed and randomized. Super random, so occasionally offensive.

3 Generations of Tools, Photographed
I'm a third generation stagehand. My father and grandfather were both theatrical carpenters, and my father is also an antique tool collector. Many of the images are literally the drawers out of his roadbox and various tool chests at his home, others are some of my favorite pieces of his. I've been posting them with my recollections of a lifetime with these tools, or with stories from my father or grandfather.

I say Moo! You say Party!
moo.party is a pure-Javascript website allowing you to script monologues and dialogues between ASCII-art cows. It was inspired by a combination of Tony Monroe's cowsay program and .party domains going for under three bucks. It is part of my ongoing campaign to increase the amount of silliness on the Internet.

I've been photographing everyone at my workplace. I have one light, a grey wall, and about 5 minutes per person.

Hyrule map projections
Assuming the NES view of Hyrule is plate carrée, how might it look under other projections? Fortunately, I just saw a talk by Rob Simmon (which has corresponding detailed articles) about how to use these gdalwarp (one of a set of powerful geospatial tools provided by GDAL) to find out!

LinkedIn Thought Leadership Generator
I was interested in learning jquery at the same time I was feeling kind of irritated with all the 'thought leadership' articles flooding LinkedIn. So I made a generator that gives anyone industry influencer-level article ideas.

Will It Skillet?: 53 Irresistible and Unexpected Recipes to Make in a Cast-Iron Skillet
I'm happy to announce that my first book — "Will It Waffle?" — has a follow-up: "Will It Skillet?" I've gone from waffle iron to cast iron. MeFites have been supportive of my first book since well before it was even a book. What can I say? I hope that people like the second book, too.

Double exposure twitter bot
Eeeeeeey it's a twitter bot that takes two of my photos (selected from twitter, instagram, and the dark cave of my hard drive) and mashes them together. Want to do it yourself? Here's the source code.
