Missing Posts

For some reason, there’s quiet a few missing posts here starting August 2017

That will be rectified as soon as I figure out what happened to them, and rescue them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Some more Comet Leonard photos

So one of the big news things has been the comet Leonard, and since my first attempt wasn’t great I thought I should try again when I got the chance.

So I did. (This time I’m going to embed from Instagram, as that seems to look nicer)

Comet Leonard photos

Comet C/2021 A1 – more commonly known as Leonard – is making its closest approach to the sun right now for about 80,000 years, so it’s a rare sight unlikely to be seen again.

I’m being kinda lazy about things, so I’m just going to embed the twitter post of the image, because it’s easier that way.

Lunar Eclipse Videos

It took a bit of time to do, but here – finally – is my footage of the lunar eclipse.

It was cold as hell out there, so I was trying to keep me warm and motivated, and the camera operating (cold shortens battery life) and aimed.

So I started at 1:05am, and finished around 4:32am, with a photo every 15 seconds, for around 410 photos (some were missed because of battery changes, and some were blurred). Generally, you want to avoid touching the camera whenever possible, because if you touch it as it’s taking a shot, it’ll blur it, and I was aiming to align them all in post.

Tetch Talk Ep 2 – Peter Sunde on 15 Years Since the TPB Raid

Sometimes it’s hard to believe how long it’s been since a certain thing happened. Today it’s the turn of the Pirate Bay raid, which happened 15 years ago today.

So who better to talk to about it than one of the subjects of the raid, the always delightful Peter ‘Brokep’ Sunde, the face of TPB in those days. And we’ll not only chat about what happened then, but what’s happened since, including his later projects like Flattr (see the button in the corner) and Njalla

Tetch Talk – Interview with a Glitch-Artist

So, if you saw my post from February, you’ll notice I’m experimenting with glitch-art a little, but to really appreciate it, you need to talk to an expert. So in the first of [hopfully] a series of Tetch-Talks, I talked to outstanding glitch-artist Jarid Scott.

Jarid had recently started a 100-day project, where each day he’d create a piece inspired by a different Nine-Inch-Nails song. We talk about the first thirty days of that project, and how he has minted these and other works over the last few years as NFT’s.

A Glitch in Time

Timelapse header

Yes, it’s time for another time-lapse, or rather, another pair.

It’s back to my usual spot for some sunsets, but alas neither of the two gave me a good sky. One was too clear, and the other generated a lot of cloud.

What to do…
