And so did the builder of this car it would seem. It’s very retro, though I think the metalflake paint has been augmented with the colour shift stuff found on TVRs (and Nissan Micras, for some reason).
I doubt it goes to many shows in Germany.
Most o0f the pictures I took at the indoor classic car show on Sunday are quite noisy because I didn’t use the flash or think to go to full manual and tinker with ISO, aperture etc.. However, there are a few of them in this Flickr set.
13 Assassins by Takashi Miike.
Takashi Miike’s films tend to be absolutely nuts, running on their own, very bizarre, logic. From the trailer this one appears to be almost normal, though still awesome.
As a bit of off the wall promotion for Slashed I’ve decided to have a go at creating miniature figures of as many of the characters as possible. These will be based upon existing 28mm gaming figures adapted and painted to suit. So I’ve had an enjoyable few hours this week surfing gaming sites and ordering the first few figures. I’d just like to recommend Heresy Miniatures and Hasslefree Miniatures, both of whom turned around my orders quickly and got them to me within a couple of days. They also packed sweeties with the deliveries, and that sort of thing works for me every time.
A few weeks ago my lovely friend Charlotte signed me up for My Single Friend. Unfortunately it seems that I’m just as shy about talking to new people online as I am off. Today my not so lovely, but still loveable, friend Dan has been haranguing and embarassing me into sending some messages out. How do you sound interesting and not creepy by email?
The Asus Eee Slate 12.1 Inch Tablet PC is another iPad alternative for me to consider (in the dream land where I have the sort of money [£999.99] needed to buy it).
By the time I can afford to seriously consider a tablet there’ll have been another generation or two of them and the choices will be wider still.
I’d rather like to do some timelapse photography, but I’m not very organised. What I’d like to see is a timelapse box. There’d be a camera, of course, but it would be stuck in there with a processor and memory.
I’d be able to mount the box where I wanted to, set a few basic parameters and leave it be. It would take photos at the intervals I choose, save them and even stitch them together into an ever growing video. What I’d also like it to do is generate a composite photo from a set of shots. For example, one shot is taken at the same time every day and a sliver of pixels- proportional to that day’s share of the image width- is added. At the end I’d have a version of the normal view but with a sampling of every day’s conditions. It would work best if the photos were taken at 5 or 6 in the morning so you’d get a sunrise/sunset effect.
Obviously the box would be accessible over a home network and possibly the internet, so I could check in and take backups. I know this is basically a glorified webcam, so it may already exist. If so, can anyone tell me about it.
