Stoke Plaza - Another Pic

Tim - frontside noseslide at Stoke Plaza Or should that be "front-nose" in today's skate-speak? This was the last photo of the day...

Woodcock's Ankle

Click for larger image Woody on Bedminster bank in the 90s - from the original "All the Lope". The best frames are frame 9 - which is the real action! and frame 12 - Jam looking on in pity.

Oz's Edit Preview on Sony W550i and Snowboarding '06 video on the PSP Our man in Amsterdam (OzCabs 90) has been sending me some nice edits lately. So, now I'm stickin' 'em on me gadgets. I've got Oz's teaser trailer of the new improved Edict of Nantes (“The Edit”) saved as a tiddly 3GP file, and an Edit of the Austria snowboarding trip on my PSP. You may notice Seward's fisheye-distorted mug at Patchway BMX track (the Tumps) and Woodcock failing to bend ze knees (apparently wearing bright green Patagonia trousers like the old days? Alan? Heli? Kronee?).

The Techno Stack

Sony PSP, Nintendo DS, Palm Treo 600, Sony Ericsson W550i My Sony PSP finally arrived yesterday! Was chuffed because they sent a "Giga Pack" model with a 1GB Memory Stick Pro Duo - it was supposed to be the "Value Pack" with a feeble 32MB card. Not bad seeing as the whole lot's worth over £200 and it came free with my phone! Was a bit gutted to find it was a 2.5 firmware model, which makes the homebrew stuff a bit trickier. Have to check out the GTA eLoader thing - but a bit unsure about it at the mo. I've got tons of MP3s, photos & video (including "Lupin III", "Samurai Champloo" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark") on there already though - nice having the 1GB card! So, my little pile of techno-gubbins is towering on my desk at work...

Stoke Plaza

Stoke Plaza Panorama Me, Jam, Wes and Tim took a trip up to Stoke-on-Trent on Saturday. It was bloody freezing! The place is amazing - something for everyone! There's all the handrails and blocks for the young 'uns, plus a large assortment of banks, steps and even a massive clover-ish bowl at the top. These pics aren't too good, as I took them with my W550i phone (on panorama mode). I took some more with my digital camera - so I'll probably post those at some point. On the way there we even spotted a decent looking fullpipe on the back of a truck - I was tempted to follow it, to see where it went...

Potty Training

Got a phone call in work yesterday from home to tell me Ella had done her first wee-wee in her potty! This morning I'd only been in work for 15 minutes - when I got another call to tell me she'd done her first poo-poo in the potty! It's surprising how great it is to hear your little daughter's done a number two!

Blog Dog

Will try to post some Stoke Plaza pics here after Saturday...

First Post

This is my first Blog post. Not very exciting... Still waiting for my PSP to turn up, so I've been sussing out all the homebrew and emulation stuff for it - and how to get it connected up to a Mac! Should be going to Stoke Plaza on Saturday - so that should be good! Loads of us going - it's Wes' unnofficial 28th (?) birthday shindig!
