I failed to watch TS last Christmas so I guess I only watched it once, at Christmas 2009... :^^;:
Will definitely re-watch it this year.
Probably not. But then again I'm strange anyway. People still find it hard to believe that I laughed hard at the Exorcist because it was just so ridiculous.
I never watched the thing, so I wouldn't know. I never even bothered with the main tune. At the time. Heck, even today, I think it's by far the weakest part of The Tubular Bells... :^^;:
(Probably the most interesting part of it, is the fact that it's loosely inspired by a rather interesting French composer who was recording at the Manor at the same time.)
did do an adaptation of TLTWaTW at some point and that was my first exposure to Narnia.
Yeah, I think I have it somewhere but it has no subtitles or something, so I never watched it...
I have the books, I have the recent film adaptation of TLTWaTW but I never seem to find the time to actually experience them.
Me neither. Anything that was made to offer counter-programming to Harry Potter doesn't strike me as made with love
, unlike the animated movie I mentioned, which with its very tight budget managed to do something interesting.
First season is actually The Black Adder, while later ones are Blackadder II, Blackadder The Third and Blackadder Goes Forth. I'm not entirely sure why the name was changed to remove the space but I wouldn't be surprised if the change of writer was involved. Atkinson wrote the first season but 2-4 were co-written with Richard Curtis. There was also a Christmas special, parodying A Christmas Carol. But there was only ONE Christmas special, you hear me? ONE!
I know about the names, hey I watched the show this year, I probably mentioned it :P
In France it's just called "Black Adder - La Vipère Noire
" for the entire show, and most promotional material actually spells it Blackadder. They... Are just unsure :P
Although black is an awesome colour, pure black has no contrast, no subtlety, no variation. These things are needed, IMO.
'Pure' colors are good for size reduction, and particularly good to establish a brand, I'd say (Nike and stuff.) I'm still not a specialist though... Is it better in color?
I can visualise many things but I lack the tools and/or the skill to realise them,
Because you think I had the tools and skills to begin with...? A few months ago I had never even touched a vector graphics program... ;)
and I don't know how to go about getting that skill. I can craft almost anything out of code but to draw a picture? Out of my league.
The main point with vectors, is that you can work in an iterative way like in code: you start doing a rough drawing, then you add elements, remove others, essentially you add 'steps' to the picture, it's like coding. "Okay, first you draw this line, then you distort it with that effect, then you color it that way, then you add a mask around here to hide that bit, then you add a drop shadow at 50%... Oh, it's too much, I'll edit that step... 25%, that's better. Hmmn but what if I did the drop shadow before I added the mask? I'll just move it one step earlier... Good... And what does it do if I move the line this way?"
It's basically trial and error. And you just put the finger on it (probably just a French expression), I like this because it's like coding!
