A Place to Call Home

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

I didn’t make it to see A Place to Call Home: Where We Live and Why when it was in London so I was pleased to discover that it had transferred to Liverpool.  Even better within walking distance of the city centre at the Mann Island Exhibition space and taking about 30 minutes to go […]

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2011

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Last weekend I took myself to London to throw myself round a series of exhibitions. One of the highlights was going to see the 2011 Pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens by Peter Zumthor. I’d only seen shots of the outside and have to admit I was a bit concerned it was going […]

Vue Free Objects Page

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Google may want to organise the Web – I just want to organise my website.  So since I had a couple of freebies for Vue floating around on Too Many Ideas without a proper home and I think I may have some more on the way I’ve made a new home for Free Vue Objects […]

Scaling Objects to Help making Vue Scenes

Monday, June 21st, 2010

I’ve been exchanging emails with Paul, a Vue user, who was having difficulty visualising how big objects should be in Vue. He uses real world measurements but his pictures didn’t look right because he was struggling to get the objects to be the right size and making the distances between them realistic. That was messing […]

Tree Gobos

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

I’ve added a set of 10 leafless, winter tree gel materials for Vue to my free stuff pages today. Tested in Vue 7 Pioneer, Vue 7.5 Infinite and Vue 8 Infinite.

Spicy Black-eye Beans

Monday, July 20th, 2009

This is one of my favourit recipes, so much so that I went and bought a 7 litre stock pot from John Lewis a couple of weeks back so I can cook a double quantity for freezing. Ideally it should be cooked a couple of days in advance and allowed to sit so the deep, rich flavour of the sauce can mature and permeate into the beans.

Big Vue News Catch Up

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

Catching up on Vue related stuff: nearly 2200 alerts (which may have up to ten possible web pages in each alert) to possible Vue content checked of which a grand total of 3 pages made it into the Vue News Blog. The hit rate is normally higher but there were a lot of Vue 7 […]

Burn Up

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

So based on part I of Burn Up I think we can take it Bradley Whitford felt it was time to show he can play an American capitalist pig. Does he know something about Morgan Freeman’s availability because I thought he had those movie roles sown up… And as a fan of David Calder’s work […]

Review – Wanted

Friday, July 4th, 2008

Short spoiler free review: only go and see this if you can live with an action picture entirely lacking a heart or soul which justifies its existance by lashing itself to a far too cool barrel before throwing itself into a river above a waterfall. Which isn’t a good thing TM. So I went to […]

Doctor Who: The Fires of Pompeii

Saturday, April 12th, 2008

So a nicely put together time travelling episode that not only managed the emotional plot development and remained reasonably logical throughout. Along with a hint of the shows darker side although given a get out of jail free card to do something nasty because the alternative was worse. The time constraints of the single episode […]
