It’s only taken me about 6 months, but I’ve finally uploaded the video from Mangamuka Gorge in New Zealand.

I’ve spend the video up (2x) to make the video shorter – I really wasn’t pushing hard at all (which is good as I met a cop).

Check out the video here:

Well - apparently $7 jaffle toasters are worth about what you spend on them... not a lot.

I felt like jaffles the other night, and I don’t have a convenient fireplace to make proper ones - and Kmart had cheap toasters.

A week later and I was using it again - and it tripped the safety fuse. 

Don’t trust it anymore - but I guess I got my money’s worth.

Back to the Island...

"We have to go back"...

No - not the island from Lost. I’m talking about Isla Nublar, from Jurassic Park.

It’s been over 20 years since the original Jurassic Park movie came out. We got two sequels set on Isla Sorna (Site B) but we haven’t been back to the original island.

This week Jurassic World opened in cinemas - so I made the trek.

Ok - so I didn’t go to a tropical island. Instead I went to Melbourne.

Why? Well, Melbourne has an Imax - and I figured Jurassic World is a big enough movie to be worth the trip. 

So with Tom, Tim, and Jim accompanying me (mainly because it was a cheap trip to Melbourne for them), we headed over the strait. Hit some of the Lego sales, and caught up with Mike in time for the movie itself.

So the verdict? 


Well - I had a blast. 

I’m a huge Jurassic Park fan - so more adventures in that universe are always welcome. And because we were back on the first island - they could tie some stuff directly back to the first movie. Props and sets from the first movie cropped up - and made sense within the story. Even Mr DNA got his brief cameo.

Some of the characters were very stereotyped, and some of the plot was overly predictable. But I really enjoyed my time back on the island. 

It certainly doesn’t reach the heights of the first movie - but it might be the best of the sequels - I’ll have to watch it a few times to decide.

It’s apparently making a killing at the box office too - which may mean we get more JP movies.

Life will find a way....

Lego Animation

I got an SOS for my cousin asking for some help with some Lego animation for her school project. She’s doing a video on conflicting world views, and wanted some extra scenes to use as background in addition to the stuff she’s filming herself.

So it was a good excuse to break out my webcam and software and have another crack at making some Lego animations (which I haven’t done in ages - not since I had the webcam and software even).

Although the requested scenes won’t make much sense on their own - they might be amusing. If you want to have a look I’ve uploaded them to Youtube.

Hope they help Gabs! Good luck with the rest of it.

Repeating the past

Back in 2002 I was sitting in a cinema watching Attack of the Clones. As the battle for Geonosis raged, I remember thinking to myself "I'll need a DVD player for this".

Ignoring the fact that my judgment may have been clouded by the excitement of the moment - the decision to get a DVD player stayed with me. This was back when I was at school - so it was quite an investment to purchase a DVD player, which was quite expensive at the time. But all my refusing to buy snacks paid off, and I got the first DVD player in my circle of friends - this was back when VHS still ruled.

I got the DVD player before Attack of the Clones was available on DVD - so of course I needed a DVD to watch.

So I got a copy of Fellowship of the Rings. This was only the standard release, but I watched it many times (including all the extras).

Fast forward 14 years - my original DVD player still works, but it's dying, so Turks got me a Blue-Ray player for Christmas (cheers mate). Although I jumped on the DVD wagon reasonably early, I've held off on Blue Ray until now. Not for any real reason - just a lack of motivation. But as I now have a player - I figured I needed to invest in a Blue Ray movie or two.

As with my first ever DVD, my first Blue-Ray was Lord of the Rings. Sort of repeating the past.

I've been thinking about updating my Lord of the Rings movies to the extended editions anyway - so the fact that I now have a Blue Ray player seemed like a good excuse. Not only that - I was exploring New Zealand and visiting some of the locations from the movie - so it was an even better reason.

So my first Blue Ray was the Extended Version of Lord of the Rings (on a whooping 16 Blue Ray disks) purchased in New Zealand.

It's a souvenir of the trip in addition to being some awesome movies.
