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.
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!!!
I am having a confusergled day today. Trying to re-create the navigation pane for the site I’m working on and its seeming to be a pain in the a**e. All I have to go on is a screen grab of a flash document which I then have to get rid of the buttons to. Then I have to re create the buttons but its a pain as there is a colour gradient thing going on so I’m having to create all that too. Its going well but its a brain fry.
Also after having read the below blog entry about being lazy bout this site I realised that the other thing I keep forgetting to do is adjust the date per entry. I really need to go on a web course ad advance onto databases and programming, flash and better web appz. It’s a must but when to do it……..
Well now let me see….. the weekend was good. Went for a pootle on the bike on sat. Did my old local loop round Elthorne park, Boston Manor waste land, M4 Underside and Boston Manor Park. Not long by any means but the bit under the M4 is always good to sit and ponder different crap. On Sunday JP his brother Ed and I went for a ride downt canals, We stopped off at the Southall bmx track and had a play then rode some more then went back to South Ealing to meet their Dad in the Pub where we spent the rest of the afternoon/eve. An excellent day.
By far the best part was at 00:03 on Sat my sister gave birth to Jacob Thomas Bull. I got to meet him today and they have done it again. They’re developing a habit of producing the most serene babies. He’s a cute lil thing
My new portfolio is up online. There are a couple of videos to add to it but click on the link to the left to have a perusal.
Tika and I went down to a pub I really love by the river near isleworth called the Town Warf. Its got a really beautiful deck over the river and is never too busy as its totally off the beaten track. On the ramp down to the river there was this washed up bike which I thought summed up my career at the moment. We had a quick drink there then on realising their food prices have rocketed we decided to settle for Fish and Chips by the canal. – The canal stank so we jus sat on the Boston Manor Wasteland. These are from this eve:
Working from home does have its distinct advantages but my body clock is suffering. I have not been keeping proper hours at all and have been doing most of the meaty work in the eve’s thus sending myself to bed at very late hours. I think next week I shall make sure to knock that on the head.
Its amazing how I forget just how much I enjoy riding. The freedom of the paths and the wind in your hair – its great. I wert for a nice long ride today and it was really great. I’ve been wanting to get out all week. There’s a galley under bikes to the right.
Wehey, This site is a year old today!!!!. I think my web skills have come along quite nicely over the last year. I think this site has had 4 face lifts and many more re-arrangements of layout and that. One thing I still aint happy with is the archive section – Must get that working properly again. Anyway – Happy birthday webby!!!
Well Its Paddy’s Day and I am not really intending to do anything at all. I am broke so there you have it. Will probably go for a quick pint with my brother this eve or something like that. In the mean time you can check out the Go onings in Dublin here: http://www.ireland.com/weather/cam.htm
Hungary!!!! don’t go there – I was intending to write a load about it but it was so unimpressive that I’d rather spare you the moan. You can have a look at the gallery though. – Very pretty place.
We had a good time but I have to question whether or not going to Hungary had anything to do with it at all.
So we gots here ok! The r\trip was pretty uneventful – I slept through the take off and then got snippets of sleep throughout the flight but nowt sound. I was a bit hung over from Sat eve. We all went out for Sister Flemming 1’s birthday and got very drunk indeed but t’was a great eve all round.
Anyway yes – Back to Hungary. its a place u have to watch you cash flow in – Every dude is trying to rip you off big time. A stern hand and confident manner is needed. Right now I feel like absolute pants but its all ok – we gonna go to the baths this afternoon and hopefully have some mud lovin.
Off to Budapest tomorrow with Bob for a few days. – He originally got this holiday for his lady friend but she gots exams or summat like that. So I am now to be his bed partner for the trip.
So Budapest? – Yeah that’s right I dunno anything about it other than its in Hungary and will take about, well i dunno how long the flight is at all so I am just hoping for the best really
For those of you who don’t know I went to Prague with Bob last year so its gonna be wicked!!
I am about as motivated for work as a death row inmate is for the chair. I have made a wee chatroom at the bottom of the page so you can either scroll down click here: WebChat or use the nav on the left – s’up to you.
