Went to see IV PLAY, play at bar med last night. Top gig. Rock and roll.There’s a review of the night with photo’s here. I’ve just got back from soundchecking and setting up for a big gig at Bar Med tonight – me and dan and trumpet. Should be a good one – pop in if you are in town… Read more →
Lat night Eirene and I went to the VIP preview of Harrogates newest club : Bar Med Harrogate. Superb new laser and lights and the new sound system, although nowhere near ‘full tilt’ was impressive – It’s s very rare to get stereo in a club – they seem that have managed it in a massive sweet spot across half… Read more →
“seasonal/topical fun (well for about 30 seconds)” – err… thanks (?) to Carl for this link. YELLOW SNOW FROM PANLOGIC
This arrived today: It’s a “Fantastic Instant Fireplace DVD”. I quite agree. It’s quite nice to have a real fire flickering and crackling away in the corner of the room. It may be getting some air time at FIREIII. Chuck another logo on the fire.
VIRUS ALERT This new worm virus gets into your system, then sends out loads of bogus emails to random people containing the virus. It’s worse when you run a domain (eg dragondrop.org) because one of the things the virus softare does is generate random prefixes – eg “ray@….”, “dave@….”, mary@….” and so on. So – if anyone I know, or… Read more →
Hello, I thought tonight would be the perfect excuse to restart my blogg relationship. My reason being that this evening I have been to my first rehearsal for a musical I am taking part in. Don’t ask me the name all I know is that it is a gangster musical set in the 20’s on a boat. I am playing… Read more →
This video is beautiful. (not so good for non broadband viewers.) Would you believe a guy is using an over head projector as his chosen medium. He sketches out scenes in sand on his OHP. Superb score as well – click the link below, turn the volume up, right click and choose full screen mode, sit back and enjoy.OHP Art… Read more →
Cor – it’s a nice day today. I’ve just been outside and the sun is actually quite warm. Stroll on spring. T-Minus one week on our next FIRE party (FIRE III).
Kung Hei Fat Choi ! It’s the Chinese New Year. 2004 is the year of the Monkey. Some interesting stuff about it all here : South China Morning Post – Chinese New Year 2004
Just had a follow up, in the shape of an email sent to me, for the Agnes / dream thing I mentioned on here a couple of days ago…. In answer – I have no idea!
Jaygo made this today. Captured my imagination. Is it a portrait of Felix Mama and Dada ? Is he a Jackson Pollock prodigy ? Is it a happy smiley face ? What ever it is – I think it’s great. 🙂 Eirene tells me it was St. Agnes day yesterday. Apparently, if you had a dream last night (or so… Read more →
I’ve been working in the exhibition center today installing some plasma screen for some exhibition stands. I made an observation that StarWars fans (of which I know that out of the DragonDrop readership, there are a few) that know Harrogate may find interesting…. The main part of the Harrogate International Centre is it’s auditorium. It looks like this (snapped with… Read more →
Just been watching this program about the Dutch with Jeremy Clarkson (he was presenting it, not sharing the sofa with me you understand). He’s been speaking to this guy who’s got a fantastic hobby website. The main jist of it is recording speed cams. Their location, and a record of some of the abuse they receive. Not only are they… Read more →
GRRR! I’m vexed. I’ve just tried to repair my camcorder, a JVC GR DVL 150 with a spare part called a zoom unit that took me ages to track down and cost me £30. I broke the new piece in exactly the same place as the original piece broke. There is a flimsy join on the unit, about 1mm² (that… Read more →
It’s a real shame that America got their lander working before Beagle II (the Brit attempt.) This latest picture reveals why… Thanks to Chris for that submission
