The Long Long Drive

By Blog No Comments

Now that was a harsh weekend. – It was great but harsh. On Fri morning i left London with bob in a huge transit van heading for Edinburger. It took us about 10 hours to get there and was a long way to drive but pleasant enough. The van was a s**t pile that was incapable of driving at speed up a hill. We had cinema tickets booked and just missed the first min of the movie. We saw Sin Cities – I highly recommend it – Best movie I’ve seen in the last few years. – Also if you have a chance to check out the comic strip its based on then do. It’s almost word for word and visually identical.

On Sat we packed the Van and had a party which we stayed to late as we were supposed to leave in the morn at 9am.

The return leg of the journey took almost 13hours. – I told u the van was a heap. We left London at 10:30 am and eventually got to bed by 2.30 – exhausted and wiped out.

 

MARKS TIP : If renting a vehicle for a long distance journey = DON’T use the cheap companies – use a big major one.

Hectic

By Blog No Comments

Another hectic week – I aint being lazy – just busy. It all came to a head today which was probably he worst ever!!! Managing Audio work form Another Tongue, A DVD duplication job and a CD/DVD edit job – all in one day. It was topped of with my Internet machine blowing up!!! BUGGER!!! – I’m writing this on the edit machine now. The machine blew with some sort of overload. It’s made the 20pin atx connecter melt into the motherboard socket making the both of them useless!

This means I need another new motherboard and PSU. -I aint happy!!! So if anyone knows a nice cheap buy fully loaded motherboard – suggestions would be welcome.

Well what a weekend!!!

On friday I met up with Bob and Meena in the North Star in Ealing. There much Vodka was consumed. My Brother joined us later on and then we went to Pizza on the Green and had us a fest of food. Funny how when your pissed food always seems to taste better.

O. K. so I’m writing this with voice recognition and it’s quite cool because I’m not touching my keyboard on just sitting here talking to my microphone the only thing is that it does not quite pick up on slang words and the busters keeps on swapping words for other words . if likely you are lazy person then you’ll find this quite cool to use .

So what’s been happening ? I have been working very hard trying to get this website done, the one for work , and I realize now that in theory it should be finished this week but I have been into the office a few times and last several weeks so that gives me an extra few days. ago when you know if I can be bothered about this sick of the site.

may be a need to take a afternoon off and go right my bike . it has been nice with the good weather summer is finally on its way

it is may?

I feel so uncreative and am having a huge mental block. Help Me!!

Just realised – IT IS MAY!!!! where’s all the time going?

New PC yay

By Blog No Comments

Super fast new PC’s are great. I’ve spent the last few days getting my new system up and running and I am very happy with it. Its a 2.2 Ghz 64bit Machine, 2gig ram and a 256 GFX card. to boost it that bit more My OS drives are 3 Western Digital 10k rpm Raptor Sata disks in a stripped raid and my main media disks are 2 standard sata disks stripped again. – My word its a fast machine.!!!

pulling curtains open

By Blog No Comments

Every morning when I wake up I pull the curtain aside while still lying in bed and I take a look at the sky to see what kind of a day is in store. I woke up this morning to a beautifully gorgeous clear blue sky in view and that is always good! I still have a lot of work to do which I neglected on Thursday but I can get all that done this eve. I think today it is gonna have to be me, my bike and some trails. Might do the Horsenden Hill Loop.


Over the past week I have been looking into PC parts. I have always been working to get my machine up to editing standard. I am now at the point of decision over Single 64bit or Dual 32bit. What ever way It will be £600+. The parts needed are:

Motherboard

CPU(s)

Heatsink(s)

2GB RAM (minimum)

Dual head 256 GFX card with core speed of 500mhz

2 x 120 – 200GB Serial ATA Hard drives

A Whopping big case (to allow for air flow and to fit the other 2 HDD’s I have)

4 x System silent fans.

Suggestions are welcome.

all nighter

By Blog No Comments

If I said I was tired yesterday then that’s an understatement for today!!!! Tom and I pulled an all-nighter last night to get this job done. Went round his about 2am this morn and left at 11:30. The job was good though and the client happy. Only thing now is that the Duplication company we are using has failed to call us with the job duped and they said we would get it this eve. Tom’s was going to meet client to hand it over but the dup company aint got back to us so we are a bit pissed off with them – CRETINS!

car alarm alarm

By Blog No Comments

With a night of sleeplessness thanks to the idiot who had a dodgy car alarm parked across the street I got about an hours sleep last night. I feel like crap and am in the office today struggling with a show reel trying to mix NTSC & Pal video signals in one timeline. – Oh the joy!!! I must say a BIG UP YASELF to Edd Dannon. Edd is JP’s younger brother and another Dannon to be reckoned with. You can just tell that the guy will be very successful. Anyway he linked me on his site so I have returned the flavour.

GAY BAR, GAY BAR

By Blog No Comments

Another weekend passes. Friday saw Tika and I go over to Acton to see wee Jacob. Tika almost had a total overload of broodiness. My lil nephew will have that affect on anyone. Sat I went to see Jimmer in Kingston – He was pissed out of his face it was hilarious. I love that guy. In the eve Sam JP and I went to the local GAY BAR! GAY BAR! for a few drinks then I cooked us all some dinner. Today I went to see my bro Tom, to talk about some future work – freelancing is looking up. We also talked about Mediachill. Some of you will know that Mediachill is our company and that this website is hosted by it but for the last 2 years it has not had a website of its own to speak of so now I give you the new and improved MEDIACHILL.COM I think its quite nice – even if I did do it all myself!!!
