somewhere between 40 and 50 years old but I weigh less now than I did
when I was 30. The Zone rules! I've been shooting film and video since
I was a kid and got myself fired from a variety of thoroughly horrible
jobs at small town commercial television stations before I landed at my
present gig. I am married to Debra. We have one son and he's old enough
to know better but still hasn't figured it out.
more than 20 years I've been doing corporate communications at Idaho
Power Company in Boise, Idaho. Great town, don't move here.
In 1995, we got digital and installed a Media 100. Now we've got two.
As I write this, I am reminded of how much has changed in six short
years. AOL is a bad memory for online support junkies. The WWUG is a
good memory that still leaves a bad taste. Apple has fallen and risen

No can do. Turns out I've got issues."

Adobe After Effects|
Creative Adobe After Effects 5 by Angie Taylor
In this article, David Bogie explores Angie Taylor's ''Creative After Effects 5.'' In his review David looks at reasons why he thinks the book is of genuine value as a resource and points out areas where he feels the book missed the mark and could have been better. But overall, David concludes that this one is definitely worth the money and gives it a strong buy recommendation. Sprinkled with sub-headers athat are drawn from classic Beatle lyrics, it is also one of the funniest articles we've ever posted over the years. During his comments regarding Expressions programming in After Effects, we were laughing so hard that tears were running down our faces. Thanks for both a great article, Bogiesan, and the laughter!
