Camping out on a plateau I've built for myself.

As a working artist for shy of a decade, I'm starting to feel like I'm hitting walls most of the time I make, which is making artmaking frustrating. Suggestions for how to rekindle love and patience for the process and start climbing up the next hill? [more inside]

Looking for video sources/movie references for natural phenomena

I'm searching for visual reference material, in the area of kinetic natural phenomena - think falling rocks, volcanic eruptions, flowing magma, good tornado sequences, anything menacing, optimally POV. Photorealistic preferable, CG perfectly suitable, any duration, web or DVD sourced, docs or movies. Thanks!

Visual Memory & Auditory Memory

I was curious as to how many visual thinkers there out there? If there are any who are willing to share their information on this post, I am curious as to whether you have always been a visual thinker or whether this was something you developed? Visual thinking seems to be one of the better ways to process information. [more inside]

What happens outside of the courtroom?

Does anyone know if there are any people who work in the area outside of a courtroom? Maybe like security guards or someone like that? I'd like to show someone waiting for the doors of a courtroom to open and am trying to think of who might be there (besides someone who's especially interested in what's happening in there) Thanks so much!

Large-button controls for iTunes on desktop mac?

Can't believe I've had such trouble finding a set of larger 'big button' controls for itunes. I'm using iDisplay and an Android tablet to declutter my screen, but the lowest-resolution option for the tablet in iDisplay still makes things [and in particular the iTunes mini player] unusably small when dragged onto the tablet screen.

I need suggestions for movies to show in a series I'm curating.

Reinventing my (work)self - how does one start from scratch at 56?

My career as a high end photo retoucher for magazines seems to be winding down, mostly because of the shift from print to digital/ipad consumption of content. Seems that my options are to gear up my portfolio to work for ad agencies, or learn to be a decent illustrator if I stay with it. Even so, I'm not confident that there will be enough work as things move forward. [more inside]

What are these visual phenomena?

I have the perfect question for the hive mind: Does anyone know the name for and reasoning behind the following visual phenomena: 1 The patterns you see when two fences (or any repeating "grid" of objects) pass each other (or appear to pass each other due to parallax) slightly out of phase. I was told the name for this and it bugs me that I've forgotten it. 2 The odd wobbling about you see in LED clocks when eating or (even more pronounced if you can do it) when "rolling" the letter R. The name is what I'm most interested in RE 1, and the reasoning for 2!

Help a budding videographer

I've got a Nikon D7000 to record video. I've got a Zoom H4n to record sound. I've got Adobe Premiere Pro (which I'm just learning) to put them together. What's the best way to go about recording and combining audio and visual during post to ensure easy (I really don't want this to be a pain in the neck, if possible) and effective synching? If it matters, I'll be recording musical performances in a controlled environment.

What the heck is a "ton of carbon in the air?"

Help me visualize CO2 pollution. When we say we're spewing "tons of carbon" into the air, what does that look like? What does it mean when you measure a gas in tons? If I magically compressed a ton of carbon that's in the air to a density of, say, the graphite in pencil lead, what are the dimensions of that brick of carbon?
