The WTF?

Bad got even worse (again)!

Yupp, exactly what you would expect: It’s NAB, it’s Adobe, it’s the latest After Effects update being totally screwy. You have to hand it to them – if there was an award for “Most reliably predictable mess-up with every new version”, Adobe‘s video division in Seattle would have an entire showcase full of them. I […]

VR is dead (again) already, you just don’t know it yet!

Over the last few days I’ve read a lot of articles over the “transformative powers of virtual reality” and similarly fancy-sounding gobbledegook in the wake of the upcoming/ just released (depending where you live) Ready Player One movie. The whole thing is just ridiculous on so many levels, but offers the perfect opportunity for a reality […]

Modo, you suck!

It used to be that I was a big fan of Modo, but over the last few versions that enthusiasm has waned to the point of a freezing zero. With the latest version 12 announcement coinciding with NAB as usual I’m even more convinced I would never buy an upgrade even if I wasn’t in […]

S.N.A.F.U. Time!

Ah, good times! Being the nasty little gnome that I am it gives me some weird pleasure to report two quite noticeable fuck-ups this week. First, the one you probably haven’t even heard about yet – Lytro is finally doing everyone a favor closing its doors for good. Of course they make it sound all […]

The (Haw)King is dead…

By now no doubt everyone has heard of Stephen Hawking‘s passing and for the last few days I have been pondering on what this meant to me as sort of a nerd with an interest in exotic physics. Unfortunately, the first things that always came to my mind aside from his cameo in one of […]

Blown over…

One of the regular activities i do with my brother is to take walks in the only larger forest area we have here. Of course last week was that large storm that affected considerable parts of middle Europe, so after we hadn’t gone out last week, being aware that the forest would likely be locked […]

«O»verflow

Ever since I bought the soundtrack ten years or so ago and it had been running in endless loops on my iPod when it was still fresh, Cirque du Soleil‘s «O» (or just O as they use it now after modernizing the branding like two or three years ago) has fascinated me. the music is easily […]
