John F. Kennedy recites the "We're From Everett" chant

Massachusetts Senator, John F. Kennedy once addressed a crowd in front of the Parlin Library in Everett. I would have cherished the moment dearly had I witnessed it.

Regretfully - I did not.

By editing JFK's original inaugural address - I have manipulated his actual voice to recite our beloved "We're From Everett" chant.

The Everett Oath of Allegiance

One day at Glendale Park, a Malden kid asked us, "What is it with you kids from Everett? Are you all sworn to some kind of secret oath of allegiance to your city or something?" We joked about that for years. Using computer voice technology, I created a recording of a group of people taking the Oath of Allegiance to Everett. You'll get a kick out of this.

The 3D Everett Kidz

The kids featured in our "We're from Everett" blog illustrations are 3D models than can be animated. In this short two and a half minute 3D cartoon I briefly demonstrate only a fraction of their seemingly endless possibilities. These animations are rather small and low in resolution to keep the file size optimized for faster downloading.

To enjoy this 3D animated feature, just click your "right" mouse button on the underlined title below and choose "Save Target As" to download it to your computer. After that you just "click" on it with your "left" mouse button and it will play.

Meet Victor (if you haven't already)

Victor is a Microsoft Scripting Agent. These agents come built in as tour guides for software applications. You know, like that stupid talking paper clip that pops up in Window's Word that wants to tell you how to address a letter.

Victor usually comes with Hewlett Packard computers as a tour guide to their operating systems. They're called "scripting agents" because you can rewrite their "script" to make them do what you want them to do. So that's what I did. I recoded Victor's script to re-animated him to make yet another "We're from Everett" cartoon.

To enjoy this 3D Everett animation featuring Victor, just click your "right" mouse button on the underlined title below and choose "Save Target As" to download it to your computer. After that you just "click" on it with your "left" mouse button and it will play.
