WRC 10: Fun and frustration in equal measure

I may have mentioned before, I’m a rally fan. I’m also a sim-racer. It’s been a thing I’ve done on and off for many years, but at the start of lockdown last year I got super serious about it, bought a decent wheel and a decent seat and a decent PC. The game that I…

A Return To The Bridges

Image from the trip posted up on blipfoto. A long time ago, in seemingly a different universe to this one, I spent a long time working on a landscape documentary project called The Bridges. It was ostensibly 13ish years in the making, but really 90% of it happened in the last 18 months or so….

What A Racket

I’m trying something new. There’s a fledgling social network called Racket, which uses a slightly different sound-based format to Clubhouse. I think I prefer the way Racket does it as it’s less stressful (to me ) and less time consuming and less random. Essentially you record with what you have to hand, via their site,…

Hope

I was going to go out with my new camera today and give it a test run but nothing I did today could have more significance than receiving this. After a year of effective house arrest due to my health issues combined with a seemingly very specifically local resistance (other places nearby seem fine) to…

VR Workout / 15th Feb 2021 / Pistol Whip + Until You Fall

Meant to post this a couple of days ago but I had a lot on. Not a huge amount to say today. My knuckles are still a bit yellow from the “incident” last week. We’ve bought a small circular rug to stand in while playing, to try and ensure that never happens again. These are…

The Practice

I’ve always politely backed away from Seth Godin’s writing because I have a deep distrust of people who set themselves up as gurus. Especially those with a heavy marketing background like his. There’s an almost cultish sense that you get when reading reviews of his work. That said. My biggest struggle over the now decades…

VR Workout // Racket: NX + REAKT // Thursday 4th Feb

Bit of a change of scene today. I became the proud owner of a Oculus Quest 2 yesterday. Keep in mind this is after expressing deep deep misgivings about Facebook’s new policies re: Oculus, and also having cancelled my account several years ago, AND swearing I would never get one. But productivity apps that allow…

VR Workouts Feb 1 + 2

So I streamed my workout again yesterday. It’s an extra challenge. Much like running with a friend. Keeping the conversation going forces a certain pace to things I find. It also stretches me mentally as well and benefits both the workout and my public speaking skills, which I need for other areas of my life….
