Firefox 3 Beta 1 Rolls its little butt out

by Trevor May | 20th November 2007 | Asides Software | Comment on this

Mozilla have just released the first beta for the next Firefox. Obviously not for day-to-day use, but great for developers. Read the release notes for more details, too numerous to mention here!

Doctor Who Children in Need Special

by Trevor May | 17th November 2007 | TV | Comment on this

I haven’t watched many of the newest Doctor Whos with David Tennant, but I did watch a huge number with Peter Davidson as a kid. Here’s an 8-minute special which aired last night as part of BBC TV’s Children in Need appeal containing both of them in a nostalgic paradox. Enjoy.

And, of course, there’s more information than you could ever want to know about it over at Wikipedia already.

Illustrator Oliver Jeffers

Oliver Jeffers sketchbook

With a little boy on the way I find myself checking out more and more children’s books, especially ones with interesting and quirky illustration. In Waterstones today I spotted a great book by Oliver Jeffers called “The Way Back Home” about a little boy who finds an aeroplane in his bedroom cupboard and flies to the moon, where he finds he’s not the only one that’s lost. It was a little while later, after getting back and Googling, that I realised I’d seen his work before.

Anyway, here’s his site, and an interview. Enjoy.

Halloween Bioshock Big Daddy / Little Sister costumes

Awesome Big Daddy and Little Sister Halloween costumes

I had a Halloween post all ready but never got around to posting it. I guess it’s a bit late now so I’ll have to save it for next year. C’est la vie.

This, however, I do have to share. Friends of a friend of a friend (yeah, we’re that close) created (and dressed up as) a Big Daddy and Little Sister from the Bioshock. Amusingly, the costumes are better than the ones at the games own launch event! (Thanks to See-ming for the tip!)

More Bioshock Halloween costumes on Cult of Rapture.

Update: Forgot to link the “making-of” set.

Update 2: Another video of a dad and his kids playing Big Daddy and Little Sisters. “no little sisters were harvested in the making of this video or when walking rapture looking for treats” (via Wonderland).

Diana+: Lomo to bring Diana camera back

by Trevor May | 11th October 2007 | Gadgets Photography | 1 comment

The new Diana+ camera

Ever the fan of bringing old cameras back into production (and charging a nice premium for them), Lomo are resuscitating the Diana camera back. The medium format camera has been out of production for nearly 35 years but will be made available again this month as the Diana+, joining the LC-A+ on their production line.

The starter kit, which includes Diana+ Camera (with lens cap and shutter lock), Diana Vignettes photo and story book and Instruction manual is available direct from Lomo for £27.55 (or $50, if you’re on the other side of the pond). (via Boing Boing)

Sony ripping off Kozyndan?

by Trevor May | 5th October 2007 | Advertising Animation Art Commercials | Comment on this

Kozyndan vs Sony

Possibly an enormous co-incidence, but the new animated Play-Doh bunnies commercial for Sony Bravia by ad agency Fallon bears a rather remarkable resemblance to one of artist duo Kozyndan‘s earlier pieces of artwork, “What’s next, USA-chan?

It really is a beautiful commercial, but a huge shame they haven’t credited the very obvious inspiration. Bad Sony. Again.

Where the hell have you been?

by Trevor May | 17th September 2007 | Miscellany | 1 comment

We've been busy

Hello. You may have noticed that things have been rather slow around here. It’s not the only thing I’ve neglected either — my World of Warcraft account has lapsed, Bioshock hasn’t been played beyond level 2 and hundreds of emails remain unopened. I’ve been meaning to offer an explanation, but I haven’t had the chance to get around to that either!

Firstly, I’ve discovered that I’m going to be a father and, just a few weeks later, discovered that it’s going to be a boy! (I’m a growned up?!) This lead me to make a few bold moves and quit the freelance circuit to take a new role at Nixon McInnes where I’d already been freelancing for a couple of months working on More Than’s rather experimental (for an insurance company) Living project.

Since joining the rather superb team full-time I’ve been busy working with Josh on NM’s pretty awesome re-brand, mincing about networking at dConstruct in a pretty awesome t-shirt, and getting stuck into some rather interesting social media projects.

It’s all rather flipping exciting!

Anyway, because I’ve been so busy, I do apologise if you’ve sent me an email and I haven’t replied! Hopefully I’ll get around to replying eventually — if I haven’t, please give me a prod.

I’ve also got a redesign for Antikewl Daily in the pipeline though, being a designer, I’m still fiddle-arseing around with the details… hopefully not perpetually. One of the biggest changes will be moving the asides to be delivered through del.icio.us. Look over to the left (at the moment, though if you’re viewing this article on the (currently unreleased) new layout it’d probably be on the right — unless I changed my mind) to see where they’ve got to.

I’m really keen not to fall out of the routine of updating this blog, so please (again) prod me if I don’t! As ever, I have a load of stuff that I want to blog about, but never have the time to do it.

So, anyway, wish me luck!
