    Wore my underpants back to front today. Didn't even notice till 2pm. Couldn't be bothered to rectify.


    Many mornings my underpants are wrong side out but they still work so I don't care.
    listen to more classical music!
  2. Some of you know that I sometimes amuse myself with fooling around with a little collection of synthesizers. These are rather simple low prized devices, most of which I bought second hand. My ambitions are strictly hobby orientated. I seldom record anything and I never released anything to the public. Playing around with this things just is incredible relaxing for me.
    I now got myself a Korg Volca FM. I just hooked it up my my Yamaha DX Reface FM synth in order to have some 80s frequency modulation fun.

    cool Volker

    I would like to raise a toast to Doctor Graham Toblerone, who invented the Toblerone in 1252, remarkably the same year that Mrs Stella Artois started making her beer. The Toblerone Corporation has been in his descendants' hands for ever since. I wonder if he had any idea how profoundly he would change the world.

    Someone told me she was a Lebanese, but you probably can't say that in this day and age.

    Lebanese eh? I personally have no problem with her sexual orientation despite our PC dominated age.

    P.S. Did Doctor Toblerone base his chocolate bar shape on that glass triangle thingy built by Charles Aznavour at The Louvre?

  3. In 1252? I have no doubt! I'd have said it was the pyramids at Giza but I'm not sure they were built yet.

    Dennis Rodman saying he can 'straighten things out' with North Korea. On the verge of nuclear war... tensions high... rates of tweeting higher... and the HERO WE NEED but not the one we deserve.... HAS ARRIVED!!

    Not entirely, though. They're using rear projection for a great deal of it.
    I am extremely serious.

    yeah It's still one of the most iconic and incredible scenes ever filmed though, I can watch that over and over, astounding work.

    Just another filming technique, but at least it's not ones and zeroes. For me it's the real deal.

    I'm sure the sequence in the recent remake has more bits and bytes in it than actual stunt-work.

  9. Rear projection is no different than green screen, really. Not sure why you would hail the one and damn the other.

    Well, I can see where Gilles is coming from, and the JURASSIC PARK quote he mentioned rings true indeed. But CGI is just one out of many tools to realize things. When used properly, it can be amazing. But it needs a certain sense of restraint.

    Hmm guess you're right but then those rear projection scenes have a certain charm in old films and sometimes they can be pretty entertaining even when that wasn't intended. smile

    In Ben Hur they don't make the scene any less impressive.
