My latest revised theatrical lighting rig tutorial for Vue.

The Expendables

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Potted review: The Expendables is OK but a bit of a missed opportunity – was Stalone been eating Quiche while writing? I went to see The Expendables last night.  I had worried that the Arnie, Bruce Willis and Stalone scene was going to turn out to be flan;  that the whole of it might have […]

The Bare Belly Coast Away

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

Just sent off an article for Ragnarok a group of desert countries for Wessex Games’ Strange Tydes.  Along with details of each nations navy there are also new ship options including Lateen Rigging, naptha projectors and early cannons. The last bit of work tonight was to draw a map to go with the article.  I […]

16 Cook Street, Liverpool

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

16 Cook Street, Liverpool isn’t the most astonishing building ever but the Grade II* Listed Building is one of only two by the architect Peter Ellis.  I originally went out to photograph his other building, Oriel Chambers, but it was covered in scaffolding when I walked to it so I’ve picked out his Cook Street […]

Review: Salt

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

Salt the Spoiler Free one line review: Salt is a good action film but slightly generic and not quite as good as I’d hoped for but certainly better than a lot I’ve seen. My spoiler filled longer thoughts on Salt follow this picture… Salt isn’t a bad action film and I don’t think it suffered […]

7th Sea Burning & Ravenloft Ablaze

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

My 7th Sea feature review was my first article for Valkyrie. Its one of my favourite games of all time. At university I took a course on fire relating to building design. So when I was talking to a ‘zine (that I don’t think ever appeared) about 7th Sea articles and they were planning other […]

Liverpool's Ornamental Gate to Chinatown

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

The ornamental gate to Chinatown, Liverpool on Nelson Street. Unfortunately the dramatic sky doesn’t really show up as well as I’d hoped in the photograph but it does frame the top of the gate nicely. The arch is the largest of its kind outside of China.

One Page Can Make a Difference

Monday, August 16th, 2010

The original Knight Rider used to end with the refrain of Wilton Knight’s last words to Michael… One man can make a difference Tonight I thought I’d share how one page (and a tiny bit of PHP code for WordPress) made a difference to my site.  At least its made a difference for Google.  I’ll […]
