A buddy of mine, aka powerbeezus on flickr took this amazing photo of amazing glitch proportions during a broadcast of Saturday Night Live on his HD tv. I can't wait to get an HD tv and HD service if it glitches out like this. This picture is incredible.

Using xvi32 to perform image destructions

dick cheney hex edited
Dick Cheney meets XVI32

Since I have been enlightened to the finer aspects of glitch imagery after discovering how nice my cable tv could look by accident; I downloaded a hex editor and started messing up images on purpose.

I have been using XVI32 a freeware hex editor to slightly modify or even massively edit image files to yield really interesting results. I have had the best luck with smaller images and sporadic but sparing hex editing, I get really nice blocky 8 bit looking destructions of the image.
