The History of Us by Pahnl - Egyptian

The History of Us by Pahnl

Monday, September 14th, 2015

Went to The History of Us at the Herbert Gallery and Museum in Coventry yesterday.  A 44m long timeline of history filled with tiny stencilled dinosaurs, people and other creatures.  With 500 entries each with a short description and varying degrees of accuracy it took us a good hour and a half to make our […]

Vue Particle System Experiments

Friday, September 11th, 2015

I’ve been playing with Vue’s particle systems ever since they were added in 2011.  I’ve just added a page for one of the experiments – a simple test of the impact of the turbulence setting on an emitter that creates a vertical jet of black spheres.

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

I’ve just added a PDF of “Road Trip – New England and Eastern New York” assembled from out of copyright images on the New York Library Digital Archive to my Trail of Cthulhu resources. The idea I’m toying with is one or more scenarios for Trail of Cthulhu (or I may go with Call of […]

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation Review

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

This film is everything that The Man from UNCLE wasn’t last week. Its grounded in the franchise that its grown out of and has a clear respect for the original source even if much of the audience won’t have seen the 60s original. We kick off with an action sequence that has more to do […]

I’ve just added The Ideal Road Trip a 1920 driving tour of New England to my Trail of Cthulhu resources page.  I’ve assembled the scans of the out of copyright book into a PDF for ease of reading and printing.  I’ve also done a rather rought and ready job of assembling two maps in the […]

The Man from UNCLE Movie Review

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

The Man from UNCLE opens strong with a nice sequence set in Berlin – a bit Funeral in Berlin. It then strings together a series of well executed scenes mixing thriller and action to a climax. And then it tacks on a second climax. And then it tacks on a foundation story for UNCLE suggesting […]
