Go go GoPro! Jan 2014

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

Few random moments captured on camera commuting from East Finchley to Old Street. All taken during 3 weeks in Jan 2014.

For the record… Yes, I stop at ALL red lights… wear a helmet… also ride 2 motorbikes and I drive a car. Yes, that means I do actually pay 3 lots of road tax, so don’t start with that one! Yes the woman crossing on a green light with her baby should know better. The cyclist crossing on a pedestrian crossing is a complete nob. The woman springing out through queueing traffic should have crossed at the lights… the 3 policemen at the lights weren’t impressed with her. And yes, the bus driver did get an earful. I had loads of fun too. What’s not to like!

How to become a rocket scientist in 3 minutes…

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Did some fun training the other day with Katie Ledger and part of it was presenting something in 3-5 minutes. So I though I’d go large and explain how to become a rocket scientist in 3 minutes. It’s essentially a super-top-line overview of how to build the simplest type of pulse jet engine… the ‘pop pop‘ boat engine. Thought I’d start with something that shows the principle before introducing the fantastically simple valveless pulse jet. I should also explain this was at Digital Outlook, a digital marketing agency, so was a little off-piste to say the least.

Anyhow, here’s the video. Bit embarrassing but hey, it’s worth it if you may learn something! :)

If you’re weird, you can get the PowerPoint presentation here.

300 – Musical Abs

300 the Movie… brilliant! Can’t quite remember why I made this at the time. Still, few minutes of silliness to brighten up your day!

Just click around to find all the sound…

Halo Wars – my take on the soundtrack

Sunday, June 15th, 2008

Xbox ran a competition a while back for fans to take a bunch of Xbox 360 trailers with the soundtrack deleted… and add their own soundtracks. I’ve been meaning to get a bit deeper into Reason for a while so it was a good opportunity to experiment. Basically, just had the trailer open in Quicktime and Reason running alongside. Every time I needed to check the synching, I did a deft flurry of mouse clicks to start the quicktime and then quickly focus Reason and press play. Kinda worked.

Anyhoo, see what you think.

If you want the audio for whtever reason, here’s the MP3 and here’s the original Reason 3 file. If you do anyhing interesting with it, I’d love to know!
