RED – Retired Extremely Dangerous – Review

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

RED (Retired Extremely Dangerous) probably won’t appeal to everyone but I really enjoyed it. I’ve made no secret that RED (Retired Extremely Dangerous) was a film I wanted to see since the teaser trailer turned up on You Tube.  Even once I’d read some reviews that compared it to rotten vegetables I still wanted to […]

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

I’ve moved the Too Many Ideas RSS over to Feedburner mostly to get a better idea of what Feedburner has to offer. The existing feed is still there and will carry on working but if you want to try the new feed you can subscribe to it on: http://feeds.feedburner.com/impworks The first added extra using feedburner […]

The magical Temple of a Thousand Bells

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

I walked from work to Liverpool’s Anglican cathedral to see Laura Belém’s Temple of a Thousand Bells which is in the Oratory in St James’ Cemetary as part of the Liverpool Biennial 2010. The work consists of a thousand hand-blown glass bells suspended on nylon string through a gently glowing ceiling. An 8 minute polyphonic piece of music by Fernando Rocha including many different bell sounds fills the room. Really beautiful work. I just wish I’d had more than fifteen minutes to experience it.

Vue Python: GetFirstHitObject Tutorial

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

I’ve been meaning to write some tutorials on writing Vue’s Python for awhile.  The obvious place to start would be with some basic stuff.  I will get to some of those eventually.  First though one is a short tutorial on Vue’s GetFirstHitObject.  I get more Emails about this than any other function.  Hopefully this will […]

Every Shop Window is a Soap Box, 2010

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Renshaw Street in Liverpool has been the home of Rapid Hardware all the time I’ve lived here. It took up so many of the shops along one side of the street that it was commonly known as Rapid Hardware Street. When they moved into the old George Henry Lee’s / John Lewis building it left […]

Should I see The Social Network?

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

Most films I can make a pretty straightforward decision if I want to see them or not.  I find myself with a bit of a dilema with The Social Network.  It goes like this… Its a film about Facebook 🙁 Its written by Aaron Sorkin 🙂 Its a film about Facebook 🙁 Its written by […]

Vue Python Script Pages, Links Directory and Search Updated

Friday, October 8th, 2010

I’ve tweaked the display of the Vue links directory and the Google custom search of the site’s in the directory to hopefully make them easier to use.  I’ve also worked through all the python script and so they’re all displayed with a code highlighter.

Are Zombies Past their Sell by Date?

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Now a few years ago a famous game designer pointed out that all successful RPGs include zombies.  I think it was Robin D Laws but I could be wrong.  This was extended by others to suggest that a game could be made a success by including zombies.  Back then zombies were the preserve of horror […]

Do Ho Suh's Between, Liverpool

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Do Ho Suh’s Between is one of the larger pieces in the Liverpool Biennial 2010. Its on a slightly smaller scale to Rotating Yates’s Wine Lodge Building but only just. I’ve seen quite a few similar photographs to the one above on newspaper websites. I decided to take a closer look because the level of […]
