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 […]

I hope Superlambbanana's Don't Fly

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

I’d planned to go for an early wander round Liverpool city centre today to take photos of as many of the Superlambbanana as I could before their hoards of screaming fans descend on them. It will have to wait for next weekend as I chickened out with the storm force winds…

BT a bit brighter than Orange

Monday, June 16th, 2008

So we reach that time of year again when my Internet connection plays up and I get to complain… Except I don’t. Last night my connection vanished suddenly. This morning I checked the status from work and there was a message that a fault had been fixed however just coming online it wasn’t working. So […]

Heroes: The Lost Consonant Game

Friday, December 7th, 2007

I was walking home from work today and was struck by something silly. I was playing a mental word game to keep my mind of the torrential rain. Thats important because towards the end of the walk I pass a row of take aways and so there is a real danger of replacing a healthy […]

7% and Rising – the wait is over

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

The first thing I remember reading of Kim’s was the start of 7% and Rising. She’s finally finished it and it’s out now. I’ve not had a chance to read the whole book yet but I’m looking forward to it. If you can learn more about 7% and Rising at Kim’s Blog or buy it […]

Why did the Pedestrian (Not) Cross the Road

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

I’ve noticed a lot of the new breed of pedestrian crossing and light controlled junctions appearing across Liverpool recently. They’ve got sensors to see if there is traffic, that the traffic hasn’t blocked the crossing and to check the pedestians are standing at the crossing. They encourage pedestrians to look in the right direction by […]

Vue Lighting Rig #3: Single Spot Slightly Behind

Monday, October 15th, 2007

This third of my lighting rigs for Vue following on from last Mondays Vue Lighting Rig #2. This week the point light has been moved behind so it shines on the figure including both the top of their head and the bottom of their feet. With a single light source behind an actor no light […]

How are News Stories can be Like Buses…

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

… you wait for ages and then three come along at once. Things had been quiet on the Vue News Blog for a few days. Then three stories came along this morning and the Cornucopia 3D sale that I forgot was starting yesterday too.

The Departed v Infernal Affairs

Friday, September 14th, 2007

I watched The Departed on DVD for the first time last night, Martin Scorsese take on the Hong Kong thriller Infernal Affairs. Both have their good points and bad points. On balance I’d say I prefer the plot of Infernal Affairs and Tony Leung Chiu Wai’s Chan Wing Yan (as Tony Leung) is more interesting […]
