Bucket list fiasco


Well of course, it all made such perfect sense, having dreamed as a 14 year old of riding a Harley Davidson Electroglide through the vast American Mid-West back in that council house in Nottingham.
So without hesitation I booked a Harley on my day off in Vegas and headed out into the desert.
Now then, what is it that we know about the desert? Ah yes, it never rains.
But it seems that Hail Stones aren't included as you can see from the leopard skin pattern bruises I have as a souvenir of riding into a desert hailstorm at 60mph. Confident it would only last a few seconds I pressed on, only to be pelted with ice cubes the size of grapes for a further very long 3 minutes.
If that wasn't enough, the Electroglide proved to be a dreadful machine to ride. Fine on the highway, a total nightmare around town.

Sod this bucket list nonsense...

Roadie Fridays



Touring - 
I left my hotel room, got in the minibus, checked into the airport, changed planes twice, took another bus to the next hotel and checked into exactly the same room. 1100 miles apart and even the tea bags were the same. Roadie Fridays can be very disorientating.
You finally go out and almost everywhere is closed, or empty.
Never mind, show tomorrow..

Rack Building

Once again we are configuring our video devices ready for the coming Duran Duran world tour.

A day at the races


More fulldome - this time at the racecourse in Doha.
The Bobboes were beautiful.

The line up from hell


A relatively simple task.. lining up 8 projectors with blends on a flat screen.  Luckily I dodged the bullet on this one and it was the French projectionist who had to deal with the utter chaos caused by the venue manager turning on the AC halfway through the show, thereby moving the screen 4" out of place and destroying the perfect line-up.

Paris Attacks



Thankfully, good friend and long term Tour Manager for the Orb Steev Toth, escaped unharmed from the tragedy that befell the Eagles of Death Metal gig in Paris last week where he was working.
Glad he's ok, devastated by the events in Paris.

Music Cube


What indeed could be more perfect than a gig where you can't hear the band.
Behold the Sennheiser Music Cube.
Now if only we could figure out a way of keeping them in there forever....

IAS

Yup, it really was 4 days at East Grindstead at the Church of Scientology.
They were having issues with their projection systems, not anymore of course...

I have to say, for all their bad press, these guys were an absolute joy to work with. Wonderful people.

It's Fulldome Time!



While you can buy a fulldome alignment system these days, it's around $60,000 cheaper to ask me to do it for you.
