  • Fitness Guru Jack LaLanne dies at 96

    Jack LaLanne who inspired television viewers to lose weight and lift weights decades before exercise hit the mainstream died Sunday afternoon of respiratory failure caused by pneumonia at age 96 at his home in Morro Bay

    I can remember this guy being old when I was a kid. He had been on infomercials for the last decade at least hawking his juicer.

    96 is nothing to sneeze at .. must have been doing something right

    RIP Jack ♥

    I remember his exercise show from when I was a kid...always very upbeat and full of energy.

      I always thought he was on speed...

      It's a big loss to the fitness world.

        Do you remember his dog on the show?

        He was in such great shape for 96, no dementia, not feeble, doing his juicer infomercials. Hmmm, maybe there's something to this healthy living. Nah, must've been a fluke

          I was thinking along the same lines then I remembered George Burns (lifelong cigar smoker, lived to about 100), Al Hirschfeld (said his only exercise was lifting a pen, lived to 98 or 99), and Sid Ceasar (several decades of alcohol and pill abuse and was, last I knew, still kicking around and pretty sharp). That made my mind easier.
          People will believe anything, which means I will believe anythingI want to start believing in things that have shapeliness and harmony.

              I think it was a white german shepard, wasn't it?

              His wife's name was Elaine, right?

                I can't give you the exact recipe for creating textures like you've shown because they were all created, as you just mentioned, using various filters, brushes, and other tools in Photoshop.

                Alright! I'm just planning to use these textures in my personal art projects for the time being. I don't particularly want to get in the habit of doing things "wrong" but don't have to worry...

                i think i agree. i see it as too many of cooks in the kitchen. we all get along as co-workers, but we each have our own style and ownership of our own set of projects.

                i don't think it sounds...

                First you have to determine if doing them in photoshop is the correct route to take. For instance, if you are creating a logo, using photoshop (and these textures in general) would be a bad idea.
