Abstract Light

Abstract LightAbstract Light

I've been playing around with some images that I took a while ago of light reflections onto my lounge room wall through the window. Whilst the final result isn't the most interesting of images I do like the way you can see streaks of light in the image where the reflection was bouncing around as it was alternatively blocked and unblocked by the movement of the trees in the wind. Due to the light levels in the room at the time everything came out very grey so I've cheated slightly and livened things up with some colour washes.

Let me know what you think and how it could be better.

The Mind of Steven Write

This is from a forwarded email I got at the beginning of last year. I thought that it was cool and it's been in my inbox ever since. Now I've archived it here I guess that I can now delete it....

Mayapple Weather - We no Longer Believe in Miracles, We Rely on Them EP

Mayapple Weather's We No Longer Believe In Miracles, We Rely On Them EP is a short set but well worth a listen. The production quality is very good and the tunes and lyrics catchy. I would buy this album if it were available which I guess is probably one of the best compliments you can give an album.

Sinestetici - The Definition of Imperfection

I've been listening to The Definition of Imperfection for most of today. It grabbed my attention as soon as it started playing and has held it since. The set contains music that is relaxing with a mixture of electronic and acoustic music overlaid with what I assume are Sinestetici's lyrics. Tracks 5 and 6 are quite folky sounding which may not be to all tastes but after listening to them a couple of times I found that I was liking them too. Overall it is well worth checking out. Try it, you might like it.

Words to try to interject in conversation

I was given this link from Miriam-Webster Online on favourite words that are not in the dictionary. My resolution for this week is to try to use the word 'stealth-geek' in normal conversation as it is very cool in my opinion.

stealth-geek (n): one that hides nerdy interests while maintaining a normal outward appearance.

I wish I was more stealth-geek rather than just a geek...

Douglas Adams - Interviews by Don Swain

I found this while searching for audiobooks. It's from Wired for Books and contains a couple of interviews with Douglas Adams, one from 1983 and one from 1989. Although the interviews are old and a lot of the events that they talk about are obviously out of date I think they give a good insight into Douglas Adams and are well worth a listen. You'll need real player to stream them and just under an hour free to sit and listen to them.

Seti@home Milestone!

I've finally done it! I've passed the 10,000 credit mark on my Boinc Seti@home project and am now the proud owner of 10,0022.4 credits with 216 Classic Seti units. I've been a member of the seti project since December 2003 and i feels good to be doing something that helps the scientific community - even if the possibility of finding intelligent life elsewhere in the universe is very very slim. I'm not one of the power number crunchers (the top participant has nearly 4 million credits) but it makes me feel good and I guess that's all that matters.

Happy Birthday Mat!

Hey Mat! Hope you have a great birthday today. Lot's of love, Kat xxx.
