What if you mounted a video camera on a sword tip?

“Super dizzying,” our man Finn might say–though oddly less so than you’d expect:

    That’s so cool. Happy New Year to you and your family, John!

      It reminds me of the theories that the earth is the center of the universe that revolves around it…

      Trevor, when can we expect the so useful CS5 shortcut cheat sheets?

        I’m trying to get there! I thought I might have time over the holidays, but my clients had other ideas.

          Well, that’s good news… for you, and that allows your site to be up.

          I still remember your tips series that grew by the hundreds… They really helped me learn my Photoshop Fu!

          John, sorry to hijack your post, but Trevor’s gifts for the community are a weapon not unlike the spear…

    Really, really uninteristing.

      Pointless, pointless reply to a fascinating post :-)

    “What if you mounted a video camera on a sword tip?”

    Did they just obsolete the “sharpen” filter?

    /thanks, I’ll just let myself out.

    Awesome! Happy New Year, John :-)

    What would make this even cooler is if they mounted it on a katana tip and sliced through some of those straw bundles…

    You know what we need now?

    Hey John, what about a cam mounted on the actor facing fimselve?
    See my CHAKUBAD at

    Still prototype in this video, but this year a better model will be tested.
