President Trump Google Doodles

What is this?

“President Trump Google Doodles” is a browser extension (plugin) I made for Google Chrome that does two simple things:

    1. Gets rid of the Google “image of the day” (a.k.a. “Google Doodle“) from my Google Chrome browser
    2. Shows a random photo of President Donald J. Trump on the Google Search screen

I won’t get into my reasons on #1 as that’s a whole separate post/topic. Article at the bottom is generally related – but topic too complex to get into here.

As for #2 … actually before I added this my original idea was to create an “American History” version of Google Doodles that would include all the well known (and not-so well known) American holidays, achievements, people and events … since in this day and age American history is under such constant division, derision, revisionism and general attack it’s easy to lose grasp of what made our country great.

Unfortunately as I compiled a list of topics and general logic for the project I realized it would take me a LONG time to finish (if done right) as it would mean creating 300+ images!  So I pivoted the project to instead simply showcase photos of the President Trump for now. I may/may not revisit the original “American History” idea in the future … if/when I have the time to do it right. But honestly I enjoy the photos of the President so much I may wait a while. 🙂

I realize the list of people out there who might also want the above stuff may not be very long (or maybe not?) but if anyone is curious give the extension a try – it’s free of course! Details below.

How to Use?

  • Install / Open Google Chrome.
  • Go here to the Chrome Web Store to install the extension.
  • Click the “Add to Chrome” button
  • Then load a new browser tab or go to google.com to test it out!

The Photos

  • Currently there are around 50 photos in the rotation
    The photos are dynamically loaded from Flickr.com – hopefully that works ok long-term (so far so good on my end).
    All photos are copyright to their original owners – none of these photos are my work (sources vary).
    If you have any photo suggestions feel free to chime in the comments or on the Facebook page.

Other Stuff

  • Glitches? I threw this together pretty fast so there may be a layout/visual quirk here or there – if you run into something show-stopping let me know in comments or on the Facebook page.
  • User Options: If my OCD holds eventually the extension might add a setting or two users can toggle – such as: categories of photos to show/hide, etc but for now the extension has no user settings.

Links

Ok that’s all – if anyone tries it let me know what you think!

PS: By the way if anyone just wants to get rid ot the Google Doodle image (w/out using this President Trump extension) here’s an extension by someone else that does that: http://bit.ly/DoodleBlocker

President Trump’s Legendary Run for the Presidency

Months ago after I had recovered from making Super POTUS Trump I was toying around with the idea of a new pro-President Trump project – something along the lines of a Candyland-mashup-with Super POTUS Trump characters. Unfortunately I couldn’t get the idea simple enough to make sense (or fit into my little free time schedule) so I just created some artwork around the idea anyway … just out of curiosity of what the related artwork and potential “game board” might look like. Shortly after this my iPad broke so I couldn’t access the artwork so this project just collected dust –
but after finally getting my iPad fixed a few weeks ago I figured I should get this released soon or else it might never see the light of day.

The Video

So … the video below is what this ended up becoming – an “audio-graphical” rendition of President Trump’s legendary run for the presidency! I’m guessing most people who happen to see this will be a bit confused on what the heck it is/etc – but hopefully the above explains the origins sufficiently. If you watch it make sure to go full screen and pick highest resolution you can to see the artwork at the highest quality. And my apologies for the black bars on the side – once again I made a 4:3 illustration in a widescreen world … when will I learn? Anyhow enjoy … and God bless President Trump!

Vimeo/backup link to come if YouTube kills the video for whatever reason.

The Artwork

If anyone wants to see the full illustration behind the video you can view it here.

Super POTUS Trump!™ The Game!

My grandfather fought in WWII and I make silly animations, artwork and games/apps. It’s embarrassing but that’s how it goes…
– Me

Super POTUS Trump is a “mini” indie video game I made as a tribute to President Trump. It’s currently available now for Windows on Steam and soon should be available for iPad as well (pending Apple review).

Game Development

While I describe the game as “mini” the effort it took to produce it was quite the opposite. At face value the game may not seem like a very big project since a person with average gaming/computer skills could play through the entire thing within 45 minutes (or less). But the making of this game was, by FAR, the biggest, most exhausting personal/hobby project I’ve ever undertaken. Not only was it my first time building a game with the (awesome) unity3d.org game engine – it also involved a ton of iPad artwork production, C# coding, audio hunting/editing, learning an entirely new game store workflow (SteamWorks, on top of Apple) and just about every social media/web skill I could muster as well. For the past ~6 months this project was pretty much a black hole that sucked up every free minute I could find.
While it was a lot of work it was, for the most part, a ton of fun. I do have to admit that towards the end I started wondering if I would ever finish it, questioning why in the world I was making it and wondered the odds that anyone else would even care or enjoy, etc. Fortunately I didn’t give up, called it “done” about a week ago and since then it’s been release for Windows and sent to Apple for review.
I have to say it was hard to call it “done” as there were so many ideas I had that I just had to leave out otherwise I’d never finish it! I told myself *IF* I lived through it and if more than 12 people enjoy this version I *MIGHT* consider making an Episode 2 (since a lot of the coding/etc would already be done). But I can’t even think about that right now!! …

Few Development-Related Images

Initial Feedback

Given how greuling things got near the end I have to say comments/reviews like this sure are great to read:

This is just art. Not a game but a piece of art. 10/10 would play again.
– Razor_One (Steam)

And this one just nails it too – we won’t hold it against him that he didn’t vote for Trump 🙂 :

No, I didn’t vote for Trump (and god no I didn’t vote for Hillary), but I love you none-the-less for making this! Your passion and inspiration shows. You should feel proud of your accomplishment! (Also love the Russian theme thrown in. The part Russian in me adores it!) …
– Shrodu (Steam)

Reviews as of 20170811There have been a few naysayers but thanks to how Steam works you can’t leave a negative review unless you’ve installed the game so hopefully that means not very many haters will bother spamming the reviews – which as of today are holding mostly in the Positive category.

Soap Box

In case it’s not obvious I did not make this game to get warm fuzzies reading positive reviews or to rake in the few dollars it hopefully makes to at least make small dent in the the few hundred I sank into making it. I made this game as my tribute to President Trump and to show the world (or maybe just 23 people) that Trump’s support is strong and made up of rationale, talented people whose bond with the man can not be shaken. With the non-stop onslaught of self-righteousness, condescension and vicious calls for violence coming from the news media, Hollywood, college cry-babies and all the other far-lefties in between I felt I simply had no choice but to make this game.

I am well aware this is just a small silly game and I don’t imagine it will get that much attention – outside a few fellow indie gamer fans and friends/family I’m sure the install base will be pretty small. But knowing that even just a few people will see it – whether they’re pro-Trump or not – it will have been worth it.

Thanks to everyone who tries it out! … and thank you, President Trump!

Additional Screens/Media


Video/Gameplay?

I realize some friends/family may not be able to play the game so at some point I may create a video showing a little bit of each level of the game so people can see it that way. In the meantime if you can stomach random people on YouTube I’ve started collecting videos about the game made by other, random people on YouTube – most of them include gameplay video of some level. Here’s that playlist if you want to see video gameplay sooner vs later.

R.I.P. ResumeTube?

So a week or two ago I dusted off ResumeTube for my own use and figured I’d push a fresh build through the iTunes App Store review process (no new features just some house cleaning/maintenance stuff). Anyhow … to my surprise I got back a quite unexpected “app rejected” message from Apple! Eesh!… Check it out:

Guideline 4.2.2 – Design – Minimum Functionality

We noticed that your app only includes links, images, or content aggregated from the Internet with limited or no native iOS functionality. We understand that this content may be curated from the web specifically for your users, but since it does not sufficiently differ from a mobile web browsing experience, it is not appropriate for the App Store.

Important Information

As a result of violating this guideline, your app’s review has been delayed. Future submissions of this app, and other apps associated with your Apple Developer account, will also experience a delayed review. Deliberate disregard of the App Store Review Guidelines and attempts to deceive users or undermine the review process are unacceptable and is a direct violation Section 3.2(f) of the Apple Developer Program License Agreement. Continuing to violate the Terms & Conditions of the Apple Developer Program will result in the termination of your account, as well as any related or linked accounts, and the removal of all your associated apps from the App Store.

We want to provide a safe experience for users to get apps and a fair environment for for all developers to be successful. If you believe we have misunderstood or misinterpreted the intent of your app, you may submit an appeal for consideration or provide additional clarification by responding directly to this message in Resolution Center in iTunes Connect.

Weird aye? I realize that some (maybe most) fancy-pants – for whom being an Apple Developer is a full-time job and not a hobby like me – may know the above rule/logic already and wouldn’t be surprised by Apple’s bringing it up … but personally I find it a bit surprising since A) I took quite a bit of time making the app UI/experience very clean and responsive and B) … I give the jerks $100 bucks every year just to keep my Apple Developer license active!!

I of course wrote them back trying to explain that while I realize it’s not some world-saving feature-packed app, the core usefulness of the app is based on a feature/need that 99% people who are “mobile web browsing” (or desktop/laptop web browsing!) don’t have a solution for (i.e. “resuming video!”) … but no idea if they’ll reconsider.

So at this point I have no idea what will happen. The app may or may not make it through review /or (worst case) may be pulled from the App Store! Sad too because while Apple may think the app isn’t “native iOS” fancy enough for them I personally still use this app a lot! Here’s hoping they reconsider. 🙁

Update 1

Well … things look pretty grim. Just got this back from Apple after my initial replies to them:

Hello,

Thank you for your prompt response. Due to recent policy changes apps which primarily interact with content aggregated from the internet are no longer appropriate for the App Store. As the main features of your app revolve around watching, saving, and resuming aggregated videos we have found the app to not be in compliance with guideline 4.2.2.

Once the app has been modified in order to address this rejection we would be happy to resume our review.

Best regards,
App Store Review

Seems like there’s no chance of survival here but I guess I’ll write them one more please. Still seems very odd to me that a “utility” app like this that is (at least IMHO) very helpful/time-saving would be considered unwelcome to the app store. If we can’t have apps and utilities that we want and actually use on our expensive tablets why in the world do we buy them!?? Ugh … to be continued .. or not. =/

Update 2 (2017072x)

The End?

Well I submitted a formal written “appeal” to the App Review Board. I actually was starting to think my case was pretty solid … but sadly, they still don’t see things as I do. My appeal and their response below for the record. I have to say it seems beyond INSANELY SILLY to have to write all these words about an app that’s all about keeping you efficient and saving time! Lordy the irony is killing me.

I’m not sure if Apple will take down the existing version of the app from the App Store or not (still there as of today). I’m too scared to ask them directly fearing they may take it down after I ask … so for now I’ll be quiet and hope they leave it there for now (?).

As for what’s next I don’t know. Maybe I’ll think of a way to make it do more stuff so the App Review board approves it – though the notion of forcing functionality like that seems like a dumb idea (even though they basically are suggesting that). Or maybe I’ll just port it to a web app. Who knows … too busy with my Super POTUS Trump game right now to deal w/it.

My Appeal

Hello,

Thank you for the opportunity to submit an appeal for my app ResumeTube to remain on the App Store.

Firstly, I agree with the general notion posed by the App Review team that my app ResumeTube is a web content aggregator of sorts in that it’s primary content is a user-curated list of videos from YouTube and Vimeo. I disagree, however, that this means the app fails to pass Design Guideline 4.2.2 and/or doesn’t deserves to remain on the App Store (as it has for 1-2 years now).

This app’s value is akin to other, fairly famous and popular, apps like Instapaper or Pocket that center around user convenience when it comes to saved articles on the web. Just as it is far more efficient for users to read articles in those apps vs. where the articles originated, it is more efficient for users to watch (certain kinds of) videos in ResumeTube than it is to watch them on YouTube or Vimeo. Here is why:

* Neither YouTube nor Vimeo currently allow users to “resume” where they left off in a video.

* For example, if a user was watching a 1 hour video tutorial class on learning Swift or Objective C (or maybe a 2-3 hour Apple Keynote video) and they had to stop watching and finish it later, when they came back another day they would they have to scrub around the video trying to remember and find where they left off.

* This act of scrubbing around a video trying to find your place is inefficient, frustrating and often leads to people giving up and not bothering to finish watching the video in the first place.

* Additionally, this video scrubbing can sometimes even strain a WiFi/router to the point of having to be restarted due to the bandwidth choking/throttling caused by excessive scrubbing. Multiply this times X number of people in an office or household (like me) with often kids and parents both competing for bandwidth, this situation/scenario is even worse.

ResumeTube was created to solve the above problem(s). Yes it’s content consists 100% of YouTube or Vimeo videos ** just as Instapaper’s content consists 100% of web articles ** … however it serves as a small but powerful solution to giving the user a more efficient, and less-frustrating experience. Simply stated – ResumeTube saves users’ time and frustration and encourages the consumption of more video content vs. less.

If YouTube or Vimeo one day (finally) introduce the ability for users to “resume” where they left off in a video then I would admit ResumeTube’s wouldn’t/shouldn’t need to exist – or at the least the need for its existence would be fair to reassessed. However as of today if ResumeTube is taken off the App Store I, my colleagues and however many other people have purchased the app, will have to return to the world of scrubbing around videos trying to remember where we left off – and sadly giving up a lot of the time.

There are other aspects of ResumeTube that I believe make it worthy of remaining in the App Store but the above points sum up the most important things – which again really boil down to: if ResumeTube is taken off the App Store, myself and other users will A) become less efficient, B) lose value we previously had in our iPads and C) watch fewer web videos.

Here is a video of the app in action in case you are allowed to include material like this in your consideration:

Please do consider my points above and do approve ResumeTube to remain on the App Store! Let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

Thank you.

Trump Oval Office Photoshop

I saw a few photos of Trump in the Oval Office with his team recently (example) and got an itch to spend 2 hours this evening cleaning it up and messing around with it (just for fun). I took the liberty of adding Gavin and Milo in one iteration … just because. Note – I didn’t have the time/patience to get all the merged “faces” perfect so some of them look a bit off … but I like the final product so that’s all that matters :).

Merged/Cleaned up

Combination of few photos for best face/positioning but keeping original scene as is

I swapped out most faces to face the camera for fun.

In other news … farewell, General Mike Flynn :(. Don’t worry we all know you were and still are a true American patriot and were taken down by insiders.

The Patriots Keep Winning!

Consciously or not a lot of us were viewing the Super Bowl 51 game last night like this:

So after the Patriots won in that amazing, last-minute touchdown I couldn’t resist throwing together some kind of graphic. It just seems like the “patriots” around the world keep winning!

Now the only question is: who will be next? Best of luck to Marine, Geert, Frauke, their countries and all the other patriots out there.

Southpark Holly: Christmas 2016

A New Southpark Holly Animation!

I usually make Holly some kind of separate Christmas card instead of the illustrated one I send out to my (short) list of friends … mainly because I don’t like her getting the same thing everyone else does.
Anyhow – I normally don’t have a ton of time to make something big for this but this year I started early (month or two ago) and spent (a lot of) time here and there to create not only a card but a new “Southpark Holly” animation to go along with it. At a running time of over 3:00 minutes it’s the longest Southpark Holly animation I’ve done – but it still just feels like a teaser trailer for a movie I wish I had the time to do.
Like in the past I made the animation using “Adobe Flash” (now called “Adobe Animate”). But since “Flash” is mostly dead for most people’s phones, tablets and web browsers I exported it to an HD video. Here it is … enjoy! Tip: Make sure to go fullscreen, click the HD button and turn up your sound before starting it!

Gavin McInnes

First I have to apologize that this doesn’t look very much like the person it’s supposed to be. I’m not a classical illustrator who can crank out spitting image likenesses of people easily. Sometimes I can brute force my way to something close with enough hacking at it – but not my usual forte.

… But my lack of skills aside, this illustration is my humble homage to the legendary, Gavin McInnes.

I could write paragraphs on the genius, accomplishments and hilarity of this man. But since I don’t have that kind of time I have to unfairly, brutishly sum him up in ugly bullet points:

Like Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin is originally from another country (Canada) but lives in the US now and fights for America’s future by pushing back against social and political nonsense (normally coming from the regressive left). In my opinion he is brilliant, hillarious and a true American hero and I “like him more than a friend.”

I’m proud of your boy, Gavin.

Trump iPhone Wallpapers

Here’s yet another Trump artwork post. Really it’s just something that accumulated over time from my own desire to get some cool Trump backgrounds on my iPhone. Half of these are using altered or stylized Trump photos we’ve all seen floating around the web and the rest are existing artwork of mine. The photo of him sitting down and pointing I could only find in black and white so the color versions are my attempt at colorization (I think the colors look right?). Also these wallpapers are all best used on the iPhone “lockscreen” – not really for the “homescreen” (behind the icons). Maybe if I get time/ideas I’ll add some homescreen ones in the future.

By the way I just realized my iPhone below has the word “Carrier” in it … that is a super very weird/coincidence after today’s Trump’s statements at the “Carrier Air Conditioning” plant on keeping 1,100+ jobs in the US!!

Anyhow – enjoy and feel free to use if you like any of them.

I don’t know if there is some huge collection of Trump iPhone wallpapers on the internet already but if anyone has or finds some other cool ones please let me know and I’ll add it above (if it’s high quality enough of course!) – I’m sure there are some good ones out there somewhere!

2016 U.S. President Celebrity Endorsement Yearbook

Background

This may be a weird one but this is another idea that popped into my head that I had to just get out of my system. As usual I went a tad overboard but I guess that’s what I do.

First of all, I am well aware that the opinion of a celebrity doesn’t matter ANY more than the average citizen’s as we all have the same capacity to discern (or ignore) the facts in front of us. However, since celebrities are given so much media attention, their opinions do have some influence on the public. So for this reason, and my own political and nerdy curiousity I’ve put together a graphical record of who is on which side of the upcoming, historic vote for the next president of the U.S. But again … while I would love to hear debates between Morgan Freeman and Clint Eastwood or Tony Bennett and James Woods on why they support different candidates this election, the bottom line is that their celebrity status doesn’t make their presidential endorsements any more significant than mine or any other American citizen’s.

Before stating the obvious that the Trump-supporting group is visibly smaller that the Hillary-supporting group, keep in mind that in the current political and cultural climate in America it is FAR easier and more “culturally-acceptable” to support Hillary (because you know “RACISTS! SEXIST!” yadda yadda). Sadly what’s worse, showing support for Trump can have a very negative impact on a celebrity’s career (example). Given these facts, each person on the Trump side here has (IMHO) 10 times the guts of anyone supporting Hillary and they have my sincere thanks and respect.

On the topic of support numbers I think the following two quotes are quite fitting:

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).”– Mark Twain

“It does not take a majority to prevail … but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”– Samuel Adams

Graphics


Final Thoughts

Even though I know Hollywood skews to the left I have to admit it is painful to see some of my favorite actors being so aggresively outspoken on this election given the fact that this isn’t “just another left vs right election” and that the stakes are so high. It’s going to take some time for me to watch any of them in a movie anytime soon – especially after watching stuff like this ridiculous celebrity-stuffed anti-Trump ad:

Fortunately, some brilliant folks made a rebuttal video that at least helped me take the edge off a bit after watching the above:

In any case … that’s all for now. I just wanted to create a visual document showing who was on which side of the election … for whichever way it goes.

#MAGA

Few disclaimers on graphics:

  • Both lists here are likely far from complete. I’m sure there are plenty of musicians, actors and other celebrities not represented here who consider themselves on one side or the other. These lists, however, are just pulled from links like this that outline celebrities who have been outspoken about their political leaning this election.
  • To keep the list more “celebrity” focused I left out people from news organization, nightly “talk shows” and the world of politics.
  • If anyone notices any major names missing, or if anyone changes sides between now and the election let me know and maybe I’ll update the graphics. But being ~3 weeks out now I don’t think much of that will happen.

#LesDéplorables

Movie Poster

Here’s a poster graphic I couldn’t resist whipping up for #LesDéplorables. I originally had Barack Hussein Obama as the police man in the background but he was ruining the mood and I just couldn’t stand looking at him – plus I thought Sheriff Joe would be a better fit anyhow – assuming everyone understands he’s one of the good guys (in the film that character is not).


My Version!

Original Movie Poster

Alternate Versions

I couldn’t resist so I made a couple alternate versions to use as a desktop wallpaper and banner on Twitter, etc. I also included a few lines from “The People’s Song” (from Les Miserables) since they are also so fitting!

26 million views on my Trump video?!

As some of you know I made (read: quickly threw together) a video a few months back that spliced together a selection of interview clips of Donald J. Trump from the past 30 years. I did it primarily for myself but shared it on YouTube for anyone else who might be interested. After a month or two the video hit ~300,000 views which of course blew my mind … but I figured, hey it’s an election season and people are out there in force looking for stuff to watch and share so I didn’t think that much of it.

Well after a few more months I found out at least 2 other people had re-posted my video in other places (kind of weird/rude but ok) and today I found yet another one on Facebook … crazily enough shared by one of my old college friends who may not even know I made the original! And the combined view count to-date of all of these copies is TRULY mind-blowing (at least IMHO). Here are the numbers as best I can track them (as of today) from all known copies of my video.

Current Total View Count26,683,745

26 million views!!?? Really?!!

I’m guessing some % of these views are repeats or flukes but even if you discount some chunk of them it is still, IMHO, CRAZY to know that such a large number of people have seen something I literally threw together at my desk over a weekend. I was telling Holly the other day I can barely fathom what 1000 people would look like let alone millions of people (and that was when I thought the view count was ~3 million)! So nuts. Plus, this video is NOT short … it’s almost 30 minutes long – which makes the view count even crazier IMO.

For the record I do not claim the video itself has any kind of artistic merit. It really is just a bunch of interview clips that were all individually available on the internet already and I just sliced them up, threw them together and put some music to it. By the way if you’re up for a laugh check out some of the comments in the original video comments thread … some people REALLY hated the piano music! Either way I’m very glad so many people have been able to see some of these clips. Trump is certainly not perfect but the media really does twist the truth so badly. #MAGA!

Again this post is certainly not me bragging or anything I just think the view count for this video is crazy … and after finding the new Facebook copy today I had to post about it and tally the numbers. Here’s the original (updated, post-inauguration) video for reference/etc.

Fun side note – someone from a Japanese TV station contacted me about airing some (or all) of this video on their television channel! I of course said yes. Sadly I don’t have a clip of how/when it aired … so it could have been in a positive or negative light – no idea. Either way a cool thing I thought. Here’s a pic to recap:
