Short Thoughts: Weekend Sites.

Throughout the weekdays, you check the sites and the tweets, almost like clockwork, on a schedule. Just so you’re up to date on your interests, ready to have your own thoughts assembled in time.

But on the weekends, you come across sites that you’ll check every weekend, to have a Gin alongside, and read the posts that have been written thoughout the week on said sites.

Chris Wilmshurst’s recently launched site is the definition of that. It also helps we’ve known one another for five (!) years now, and when he sets his mind to something, the result is something you keep watch of.

The first post is a particular highlight.

So crack open a favourite beverage, and have a read.

Short Thoughts: Lois and Clark Soundtrack.

It’s well known that if you ask me who my Superman is, and the music that reminds me of the character most, it’s the 90’s series ‘Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman’.

I even wrote something about it last year, one that Dean Cain found insightful!

I’ve been wanting to find the soundtrack for years. The one released twenty years ago on disk had tracks that you couldn’t pinpoint, it wouldn’t remind you of a certain episode, only the theme song.

But tonight I came across the composer Jay Gruska’s site, and he has uploaded new, clean tracks from the series!

First Flight‘, ‘Main Theme Teaser‘ and ‘What’s Brewing‘ are my highlights, as they are all from pivotal points from the Pilot episode. Still incredible to hear twenty years on.

I hope more tracks get released soon. They’re far too good to be kept away.

Short Thoughts: Tomb Raider Suite Kickstarter Launched.

The Kickstarter is now live. Click here to support the cause.
The target is £160,000, and as of posting, it’s already past ten percent in the fourteen hours it’s been live.
I’ve pledged for the £120 reward level, which includes a digital download, the CD, and the vinyl.
Everyone needs the vinyl as they kick back with a Gin one evening I figure.

I do love the reward names; from the Dagger of Xian, to a Gold Key and an Infada Stone.

I will be keeping track of this, and do spread the word.

Short Thoughts: iOS 11 Wishlist.


As an upcoming iOS release beckons once again, Federico Viticci of MacStories released the latest in his iOS Wishlist series on Friday, focusing solely on the iPad.
Even before reading his wishes, I agree completely that the iPhone has reached its point with new features. To me, a lot can be focused on refinement. Managing iMessage sticker apps are currently a mess for example.
With the iPad, there’s a lot of low-hanging fruit to obtain, with a lot taken care of in the video him and Sam have created.

Short Thoughts: Tomb Raider Suite Kickstarter Launch Date.

As you are probably aware, I’m fond of the first three Tomb Raider games and the music, and loved my time at the Tomb Raider Suite back in December.
Today, Nathan has announced the launch of the Kickstarter, as May 26th.

Only a week on Friday.

I’m curious to see what the pledge rewards are, alongside how Crystal Dynamics markets it. It was great to see a live Instagram video a few weeks ago, hopefully more of this appears through Facebook Live, or even a Reddit AMA.
