neOnbubble Trailer

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andy Fanton’s trailer for the Lord Likely website for encouraging me to do the same. At the time it was released I thought to myself: "I’m going to do me one of them there trailer things later this week by Heavens!"

And a fraction shy of five months later(*) … here it is!

Because every website needs its own trailer.

(*) In software development terms the phrases "later this week" and "five months later" are interchangeable.

  2. Hooray!

    That is an excellent trailer. That trailer you did? It’s excellent.

    In conclusion, then: your trailer = excellent.

  3. Claire: I’ve shown you mine; you’re supposed to show me yours now.

    Andy: And your comment, sir, remarking on the excellence of my trailer was itself excellent to the point of being excellent. Or, to put it another way, it was excellent.

  5. I DO like explosions, and men, and girls who iron. Oh, and purifying fire of course. I guess I officially love your site now! Great trailer.

  6. Claire: Ah! A daft widget makery thingie videoey type object! Very VH-1. And everything on this site is coded by me – including the commenting system – so it automatically looks for YouTube or Google videos and embeds them if it can.

    Melissa: Everyone likes explosions. That wasn’t news. That you like girls who iron, though? That was interesting. I know what someone’s getting for Christmas now!

    This!

  7. That is exactly the widgetry I used 🙂
    Coding is too complicated for me, I am hormonally imbalanced after all.

    Can’t you take it out? it scares me.

    Wait. What are we talking about again?

    Also, congratulations. You are the first person to be auto-approved to comment so long as you use that PC and browser. I think. Unless I’ve messed the new commenting code up. Chances of that … really quite high.

  9. I knew you would do something with that comment! pervert 🙂

    Lets see if this comment widgetry works.

    Also, you went to University? up here? wonders never cease.

  10. Yes, I spent 2.5 years in Liverpool, the first two of which were spent on a university course in Computing which was so unbelievably pointless I dropped out. I then stayed on for 6 months living in the same house with some students without paying any rent (through clever use of lying to the Welsh landlady) before deciding that it’d be best if I left them to study for their finals instead of distracting them by dragging them down the pub every day and the various clubs most weekends. I then used my awesome inate programming skills and absolutely nothing of the nothing I’d not learnt at university to get a decent job back down south. In summary: university was a waste of time but good fun and I consider Liverpool to be my second home even though I’ve not been back in mumble something years.

  12. I’m older than you, yes, and I sometimes get back ache and reminisce about the days of the Kaiser. But I’m not ancient.

  13. Hey, not to interrupt your conversation with Claire or anything, but I just wanted to insert my own compliments about the trailer. I’m all about the pointy things, myself. The kind that jab you in the eye and make you take notice. But that’s just me.

    A trailer for a blog? Why didn’t I think of that?

  15. Ok. Now I have to do one of those. It was so cool!

    Where do I find the widgety thingy to do it with?

  16. haleyhughes: Thanks. Likewise, I wish I’d thought of it first.

    Roshill: Also thanks. And everything on the site is all my own work. Photoshop paths to create the swirls.

    Mimi Lenox: You’ll have to ask Claire about her widgety thing but for me I used Sony Vegas 7.0 and edited video clips from The Internet Archive. You could probably use Windows Movie Maker to do the same.

  18. Ah Liverpool, those were the days! I even worked in a dreadful engineering works on Edge Lane for several years after university, though the Edge Lane I knew no longer exists. But then I *am* ancient.

  19. Hell, the Edge Lane I knew may no longer exist. I spent my second year living in a house in Fell Street off Holt Road off Edge Lane.
