A Farm Photoshoot

Oct 20, 2009

I've neglected my photography a bit recently, so I decided to post a few pictures I took yesterday. I'm into wide-angle shots in a big way and shoot mostly at the widest angle I currently possess, the 18mm end of my 18-15mm kit lens. As you may know I am also a bit advocate of off-camera flash. The following shots are an example of both.

Bejeweled Madness

Oct 17, 2009

I'm ashamed to say as of yesterday I am officially a Bejeweled addict. More specifically, Facebook's app Bejeweled Blitz. I warn you, do not get into this. It will take over your life!

The Invention of Lying

Oct 16, 2009

Lamefest. Seriously. What was Ricky Gervais thinking with this film? It is rather hard to pick something about this film that I actually liked. That's how bad it was.

Possibly the least interesting post yet

Oct 15, 2009

I've been working on my Javascript coding more recently. It's baby steps at the moment because a lot of it baffles me. Mostly due to the fact that there isn't any error feedback. If there's errors in your code, the script just doesn't run. How convenient.

Monopolising London

Oct 13, 2009

Last week, Charlotte and I decided to descend on London for the day. Not uncommon, however this time we were on a mission: visit every monopoly property on the board. After a full 12-hour slog, we finally reached our target... well, close enough.

10 reasons why 99% of photos on Facebook suck

Oct 6, 2009

Ok, this is a little bit of a rant. Along with my photography hobby I also developed an annoying smugness for all photos. I'm a self confessed photo snob. It's unfortunate, because I once used to enjoy browsing photos on Facebook. Now, it's a case of, "wow that photo sucks", "oh my", "damn - what were they thinking", "oh it gets worse", etc. So to celebrate this rather ugly trait of mine, here is my compiled list of the top 10 reasons why Facebook photos suck.

Premiership Predictions

Oct 5, 2009

A quick prediction post to summarise the football rush I always get at the end of the weekend. I should say, I'm a Chelsea supporter.

Thanks Biffy, The Captain is it!

Sep 28, 2009

Biffy Clyro have a new single out, The Captain. It's the follow up to That Golden Rule and features on their upcoming album Only Revolutions. I never really got fully on board with That Golden Rule, but The Captain, in my opinion, better represents the sound that Biffy hinted at in That Golden Rule. It's like they've made the perfect rock/pop fusion track. And I love it!

Is your iTunes top 10 embarrassing?

Sep 26, 2009

I've noticed a trend amongst several people's iTunes libraries. Now this is just a fleeting thought, I haven't done any extensive research. But it seems the top 10 songs most played in peoples music libraries tends to be quite embarrassing. Your actual favourite songs probably tend to vary over time and, for me at least, the top 10 highest played rarely seems to reflect this.
