Motion Graphics Audio Sourcing

Just been doing a quick hunt for audio, whilst I finish my story board for my motion graphics project, and I’m going with some audio from 2001 A Space Odyssey.

First YouTube result, was interesting, since apart from containing the audio I was after, its a Adobe After Effects CS3 remake of the opening.

Comparing that to the original, its quite a faithful reproduction…

Anyway back to finishing my storyboard, but given that both of these is a minute long, or so, still need a further 2 minutes of audio….

Then again I might change the order of elements, since I am making a advert for firefox or chrome (I can’t remember which one I put in my brief, so should probably dig that out…. and check).

Anywho in other news, my other project is coming along nicely, the new games module for 360gaming [dot] net, now gathers data from Xbox.com and Wikipedia. All thru async. jQuery.

WIll be posting about that another time.

Long Time Since I blogged

Again, its been a while. Things have been pretty busy.

Currently I just fixed the LSRfm.com Podcasts, they were downloading a minute or two of audio the PHP was dying, FAST CGI php5 was being ghey.

So after a quick chat with Dreamhost over live chat, my script now rather than munch the file, just passes it off to a http location, less of a memory muncher too.

SRAchart is its usual self, tho we did get a full house of Charts last week, (well near enough), Ellie Goulding and Owl City are dominating, and Glee Started Charting too.

(Yes I am a Glee Fan)

Handed in the Motion Graphics Brief.

So Uni Wise I just need to sit down and code code code, both for Project 2 (ala 360gaming.net enhancements), and start planning and researching what I need for project 2.

And start writing an essay for Futures and Strategies, fun times.

I’ve not had any spare time to play Halo, tho the Reach Beta has been announced! Hurrah!

Now I must get back to coding stuff for LSRfm.com fixed the Jukebox, now to do the music db, tho I do have a nice IRC bot sat in the new LSRfm.com Chatbox

Also <3 jQuery....

Life Since the last Post

Yes, I’m rubbish at updating my blog.

So its the new year and suppose I should keep up with it.

In recent news I am no longer single, I go out with the Wonderful Kayleigh.

I’m currently sat at my temporary desk in Stage @ Leeds, (just finished painting a Door Blue and waiting for it to finish drying)

LSRfm.com – Leeds Student Radio is ticking over.

Just did a massive 19 hour shift over New Years for Wax:On over at LUU, quite good fun, running the lights in the Terrace again, didn’t blow up the rig this time which is always a bonus, last time I blew a Atomic 3000, and it tripped the whole rig out….. We think its a manufacturing fault.

So coming soon, back to degree!

Which means 360gaming [dot] net is gonna get some work done to it finally…. Its my project for my degree, bonus!

Tho I should really get on with Data Mining’s essay and my Critical Thinking Essay, total of 6000 words to write by the 14th.

Off to meet the guys from Muze.tv for SRA Chart stuff this weekend.

AND I ORDERED A MAC!

I have a 17″ on its way to me!

So stay tuned for new Mac goodness! As well as regular updatage!

Zend Framework is Quite Good

So its week whatever it is of GSoC (Google Summer of Code), I’ve lost count, is been tooo busy.

And getting there with AptitudeCMS, not I have my head round it and I have some working code, since its XML Related I was going to use my xml2array function I have that I usually use, but it was suggessted I use Zend Feed to do it and its quite a lot nicer, it does in and out it one easy block of code, in and out I mean for importing a feed out being creating and caching a feed.

On a side note, I have finished some client work (again), hopefully no more damn changes to make on it, and 360gaming.net is coming along with its Windows Live Authentication.

Anywho back to work. 🙂

When Friends Ditch You

There I was, all packed up and ready to go to Silverstone, to help a friend run a tent.

Phone them up, rang, and rang, to voicemail, left a voicemail.

Phoned the following day, same, and then phoned on Friday, still no answer.

So I didn’t go to Silverstone in the end, nice of a friend to actually say your not going, except they didn’t.

Let alone, the fact I told a known BBC Sports Reporter I was going, and they were going to come say hello, now I look like an Idiot.

In the end I got quite a lot done on 360gaming [dot] net, it now has working profiles and Windows Live Authentication, but now I must get back to my GSoC Project, I’m finally getting my head round the file structure for plugins, and will be teaching my new boss how to program a Pearl 2004 soon too.

Also I discovered I like Whiskey.
