Antikewl Daily downtime

by Trevor May | 14th July 2007 | Miscellany | Comment on this

Apologies if you tried to dropped by to read the wonderful postings earlier. Antikewl Daily‘s web host, Dreamhost, were performing a routine server transfer… but cocked it up. This site, and many others, didn’t come back online until a short while ago.

I still can’t access my email.

If anyone has a suggestion for a good, reliable, inexpensive web host, please let me know!

Chad Geran’s Rhyme Book

A page from Chad Geran’s Rhyme Book

I rather like the beginnings of a children’s Rhyme Book by Canadian illustrator/designer Chad Geran. He hasn’t got a publisher yet but, inspired by Steve Mack, he’s creating a new book spread every week or so on his blog. Go take a look and, if you’re a publisher, make him an offer! (via Drawn!)

EPCOT: Goodbye Spaceship Earth wand

by Trevor May | 12th July 2007 | Architecture Disney | 1 comment

Bye bye EPCOT wand

Ding dong, the wand is dead. Finally!

The hideous millennium wand and dismembered Mickey Mouse arm that’s clung to the side of EPCOT’s geodesic sphere for the last seven years is finally coming down. It has been reported that Siemens, the new sponsor of the attraction, made a request that it be removed as part of the current Spaceship Earth rehab.

In a kind of ironic fashion, the news has been confirmed just one month after the EPCOT Central blog decided to call it a day.

The Leave a Legacy monoliths with remain until at least 2020, but I hope they at least remove the ugly brown decals from the support legs before then.

Some related bits and pieces:

In case you’d forgotten how fantastic it used to look, here’s a reminder. This is a promotional slide from Walt Disney World in 1982, courtesy of Jeff B on Flickr:

Newsflash: Hollywood execs know nothing

by Trevor May | 12th July 2007 | Asides Movies | Comment on this

Newsflash: Hollywood execs know nothing: “We always hear about how entertainment execs earn their giant salaries by being incredibly shrewd selectors and marketers of motion pictures, but this chart shows that you could get the same result by throwing dice.”

O2 to get iPhone in the UK

by Trevor May | 5th July 2007 | Asides Gadgets Mobile | Comment on this

O2 ‘to get iPhone contract in UK’: Not so handy for me because I’m already on the O2 network and the best phone deals always seem to go to new customers.
