Make slideshows using AppleScript

I'll save my hate for Automator another day. Meanwhile, I will profess my love for AppleScript. While Automator is great for the MacNoobs, I find AppleScript, for those willing to learn, can greatly enhance your life. Automator plus AppleScript will, of course, turn you into Godzilla.
