Friday Sillyness

Friday, November 30th, 2007

This article on the BBC web site intrigued me earlier Boys of 12 ‘abusing asteroids’. Turns out I’d miss read it and it was Boys of 12 ‘abusing steroids’ serious but no where near as intriguing. Angel wings ‘unsafe’ for nativity. Political Correctness not the same as Health and Safety. Plus isn’t the BBC giving […]

7% and Rising – the wait is over

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

The first thing I remember reading of Kim’s was the start of 7% and Rising. She’s finally finished it and it’s out now. I’ve not had a chance to read the whole book yet but I’m looking forward to it. If you can learn more about 7% and Rising at Kim’s Blog or buy it […]

One divided by Two Equals Two

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

I started editing Mrs H’s Knitting Circle last night. It was so far over the word count I realised I needed to do something drastic. It was ending on a long bit of dialogue that I liked after an unseen action sequence. So, thanks to the joys of word processing, I’ve rewritten it to put […]

Vue Lighting Rig #9: Two Spotlights from the Front

Monday, November 26th, 2007

Tonight’s Theatrical lighting rigs is one of the most commonly used solutions to the question of how to light an actor. It has been in use for at least seventy-five years and was first described by Stanley McCandless in his 1932 book A Method of Lighting the Stage. Even the best funded production has a […]

Planet of Danger

Monday, November 26th, 2007

When it was quiet late on Friday night I recorded the first half of myself reading The Electron Jockey. I’ve spent some of today editing the first Planet of Danger cast which will eventually be a part of the, yet to be launched, DirkDangerous.com website. So far I’m about half way through the recording and […]

Mrs H.’s Knitting Circle Arrgh!

Saturday, November 24th, 2007

I got inspiration for the Mrs H.’s Knitting Circle tonight and pushed on through the next scene and past the 3,500 word limit which is a problem as I’m not close to the end yet. However I scrimped on a couple of earlier sections so I’m thinking I could expand them and move some of […]

I sure pick the day to mess with American History

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

I’ve been using the wibbly wobbly web and associated Internet thingy for well over a decade now. In that time I’ve made friends all over the world including America. Funny thing is that today is the first time I can remember being wished happy thanksgiving. Its not just happened once though but several times. Anyway […]
