March Madness brings Lunar Eclipse!

March 23rd, 2016 brought to us one of the astonishing wonders of our solar system, Lunar Eclipse. It will be visible from North and South America as well as Most of Asia. Though it will not be as special as the 4 consecutive blood moon eclipses we had over the past 2 years. This lunar eclipse lasted for 4 hours and 15 minutes around 7:47 am EDT. The next lunar eclipse will not be until August 18, 2016 and the next solar eclipse will be on September 1, 2016.

What makes me ECSTATIC THIS WEEK

Who you gonna call!! One of my favorite childhood movies is getting a reboot. The original Ghostbusters came out in 1984 with Bill MurrayDan AykroydHarold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. The cast this time will be all female, notably 3 of the leads are members of Saturday Night Live (SNL): Kristen WiigKate McKinnon and Leslie Jones started on SNL. The 4th member of the new cast is hilarious Melissa Mccarthy. Not much is know about the new plot but I would like to see if there will be a modern day version of Marshmallow Man. The new version is set to open on July 15th, 2016!!

Riding the Waves in Week 2

Creating a Gif in my 2nd week was a lot easier than my first week (or so I thought at first). I was able to create gif from a longer sequence at the bottom of my post. I did come into trouble when I choose a video and then tried to upload it to imgur. I googled keywords: “video to gif” and found another similar site to utilize Giphy was the site I went with and created the product below Gif I could not embed. But still came into issues embedding the gif into the blog. I tried downloading the gif and added to the gallery, still was not moving when I preview the Gif on the blog. So, I went back to imgur and uploaded the gif I made on Giphy. Finally made it through the waves and posted the gif below!
