The Mundane

There’s a (Plot) Hole in the Desert

For the last three weeks or so I’ve been kinda binge-watching Breaking Bad again, which, like so many other people, in my view is the only cool way to watch the series. I haven’t touched it in pretty much exactly a whole year after my run last year and while I remembered most of the story, I had completely forgotten […]

SIGGRAPH *d’oh*

Is it just me or was this year’s SIGGRAPH boring as in being really dull? Okay, I admit that most of the news would not be relevant to me in terms of actually using the programs, but even in the geek sense I didn’t exactly get a hard-on this time. It seems that all news […]

Why are the CC 2014 a full separate install and not just updates/ patches? Well, because […]

2014 is just like last Year…

…at least with regards to Adobe‘s release of new product versions. Yepp, they never learn and once again instead of waiting until the programs are actually ready, someone set a fixed release date and unleashed a package that is far from being fit for release. Barely 24 hours later every second post on any forum […]

Riding on a Jet Plane…

The other day I had this weird flash in my mind where I suddenly had this vision of drawing a 1950s/1960s era jet plane. I consider this the golden age of military jet aviation because of the experimental nature of many designs – crude, but somehow still sleek and elegant; notoriously underpowered and unstable, yet […]
