Mrs H.’s Knitting Circle

Saturday, November 17th, 2007

I was reading the end of The Steward, the Kriegsherr, his Femme Fatale & her Brother and the start of Dirk Dangerous and the Giant Balls of Doom and I felt there needed to be a bridge between them. It means I won’t be introducing Dirk to the world for at least one more story […]

Why did the Pedestrian (Not) Cross the Road

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

I’ve noticed a lot of the new breed of pedestrian crossing and light controlled junctions appearing across Liverpool recently. They’ve got sensors to see if there is traffic, that the traffic hasn’t blocked the crossing and to check the pedestians are standing at the crossing. They encourage pedestrians to look in the right direction by […]

Vue Lighting Rig #7: Two Spots 45 Degrees From the Side

Monday, November 12th, 2007

Last week’s theatrical lighting rig for Vue, Two Spots Slightly to the Side, placed two lights at steep angles to either side of the actor. This week’s rig is very similar except the lights have moved out so they are now at roughly forty five degrees. As the light now comes from an increasingly lower […]

Elizabeth: The Golden Age

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

I’ll keep this short Elizabeth: The Golden Age 1: Historical Accuracy 0. The story is a mix of school boy history and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Enjoyable though.

A Real Summer

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

Not sure what to make of tonight’s Stephen Poliakoff short "A Real Summer". Maybe it will make more sense with "Capturing Mary" when it’s show tomorrow but at the moment it seemed like a poor cousin to an Alan Bennett Monologue.

Astonishing Adventures in Rendering

Friday, November 9th, 2007

I’ve been creating some renders as possible illustrations for my short story for The Steward, the Kriegsherr, his Femme Fatale & her Brother. Some I’m happier with than others which is a shame as I want to use them to make a montage…

Thursday Thirteen #34

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

My 11th Thursday Thirteen was a list of birds I see on my way to work. Tonight I’ve compiled a list of types of people I see when I’m out shopping. Adulescent – Dresses and acts like he’s 16 although he’s now in his 30s. Barbiedcutie – Would be attractive woman who has spent too […]
