Things that make me go eh?

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Bought new pots and pans today from John Lewis after spending months trying to pick ones I liked. I’d spent ages looking for pans that were oven proof. It didn’t say they were on the top but on Saturday I discovered that along with exactly the same information that was on the top of the […]

The Dangers of Turning the Page too Fast

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

Flipping through g2 in the Guardian quickly at lunch today I half caught the text on the picture above. Except not quite. I miss read it as "Est Aux Folies Bergerac". That was an image of John Nettles I didn’t need…

The Customer is Always Wrong…

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

at least if their a tennant. The picture is of a leaflet sent out by Arena Housing and they have now apologised (see the BBC for more details). Last year another Liverpool landlord put notices on the house of tennants who they say hadn’t paid their rent. A growing number of tennants are being evicted […]

Just Messin' Around with Vue 7

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

I’ve just spent the evening messing around with Vue 7. Nothing really to show from tonight but I made the yet to be titled picture above last night. I’ve resized it for the web from a larger, print quality render and cropped it a little too. The ship is from Cornucopia 3D and the Water […]

Making a Searchlight in Vue

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

Vue doesn’t have a parallel light source that creates a fixed width beam so making search lights and other lights with parallel edges requires a little work. Here is one way I’ve used, it may not work for all situations but it works for some. All the values I give here are those I used […]

Trash Liverpool?

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

I missed La Princesse missed it yesterday when out shopping. Much that I like art I decided the crowds heading towards it were huge and with a heavy shopping bag to carry I’d give it a miss. Today on my way in to town I was pleased to discover it back on Concours Tower by […]

Refactoring the Restroom

Monday, July 21st, 2008

After spending a few hours refactoring python code on an ongoing (not yet ready for release) Vue python script I’m reminded of a cartoon that used to be on the wall of the Guild of Students projection room. Under a picture of Charlie Brown was the line "Working here is like wetting yourself in dark […]

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 […]

Monday, April 21st, 2008

Last week in part 2 of Vue Lighting Rig #16: Three Point Lighting – Part 2 I covered two variations on a three point lighting rigs. Tonight I’ll cover another of the variations. Again the key light is at 30 degrees to the horizontal and 45 degrees from the front of the subject to be […]

I don't make New Year Resolutions…

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

… But if I had and it had been to get a shift on with Night in the Sidhe I’d be doing well so far. Admittedly tidying up the current draft last night actually cut it down by several thousand words. I’ve move note and fragments of story without a home in the current structure […]
