There are some things that are tangential to Calypso.  This is the page set aside for those things.  This is a page about things that are technically NOT "On Calypso", which is another page - about stuff ON Calypso.  In addition the actual "ON" Calypso was getting to be a huge page, as the years go on.

This is a page about things inspired by Calypso.  At the top of the list is Butterwood Raceway, motivated by Calypso and the famous "74" (which you can read about on the "Stories" Page.)

Butterwood Raceway

Okay, while not considered "On-Calypso" in the true sense of the word.  Butterwood Raceway is TECHNICALLY - ABOVE Calypso.  Butterwood Raceway is located in the Recreation Room above the Garage where Calypso rests - so in a manner of speaking Butterwood Raceway is ON Calypso.

I am extremely thank full to three great organizations for helping me build Butterwood Raceway, shown here on the right.

The basic "starter track" was thanks to Joseph Wind of Nomad Raceways here in San Diego.

BUT THEN - expanded to it's current form motivated by Calypso, but very different.

And finally I enjoy working with Marc at Smart Race.  True there is a time difference with him being in Germany, but it's worth it.  

Again, this web-site is dedicated to Calypso.  And there is no web-site for Butterwood Raceway.  BUT if you click on the picture above it will take you to the Butterwood Raceway YouTube Playlist.  Yet another diversion.

Here is my very first video with an application I learned of called "Blender".  Blender is a video animation application that is extremely complex.  It's going to take years to learn how to use it.  I have always dreamed of trying to find a method of drawing things out for portions of my videos and the video creation applications just don't make it with the detail I would like to have.  From what I see in the form of versatility and flexibility this application might just do exactly what I wish it too.  Below is my introduction.
