My name is Scott Hargroves. I create things out of pixels, mainly for the web, but sometimes just for kicks. Like when I built a Multitouch table in my spare time. I do other stuff too, like making short films, taking photos and sometimes sending the odd tweet.

Forgetting Darius Monsef

26 Apr

So I have just got home from the Cinema after seeing ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ and I seriously can’t believe my eyes. Is this really Darius Monsef of ColourLovers fame (or kirupa oldboy)!

The film was actually really funny (just like most of the Judd films of late) but I was just thinking all the way through that this is Darius right there on the screen. The weirdest part is that the whole film is set in Hawaii which happens to be strongly connected to Darius as well.

Weirded.

Timeclock

25 Apr

As part of a project I am working on with Ren we are using a clock to as an interface to control stuff on Flash. We have been tirelesly looking for a suitable alarm clock that would house the electronics that power the interface. We have been unlucky so far in actually finding one. So I decided to go with the back up donated by Heather.

Its a little bit pink but I think we can make this work. I will post more on this project once its finished. Its a little bit out there but uses some cool technology to power it.

I want in on the industrial revolution!

The internet is an industrial revolution

Things like this actually scare me. There is so much wrong with it I don’t even know where to begin. The fact that this came through as a FAX of all things just makes the situation worse.

The scariest part of the whole thing though is that people are actually fool into things like this!

We’re cooking on steam!

Cooking on steam

While doing our weekly food shop tonight we got a Steamer. This idea has been floating around ever since Kris said it was practically the best thing he ever did buy and convinced me I needed one in my life. We were going to get one ages ago but just never got around too it.

I like it. Super simple, just chuck them in and go. Couldn’t be easier. I feel like life just got that little bit healthier.

An almost family portrait.

An almost family portrait.

My dad just found this and sent me it. Apparently its everyone except my sister Melanie and instead there is some random boy.

So from left to right:
Peter – Me – Hans – Mum – Dad – Clare – Random Boy – Emily

I love this photo but can’t help wish that Melanie was in this too instead of random boy. Ah well, one for the archives.

Is sushi without the fish even sushi?

18 Apr

Sushi or is it?

Just had this for breakfast. I love fish but have this thing about things being cooked. So with this in mind I took part in my first sushi experience, minus the fish. I don’t even think it could be classed as sushi to be honest.

Bitten by Duncan Laing

15 Apr

Okay so this is basically just a link dump for Dunc’s newest short film entitled ‘Bitten’. The film was shot over a couple of days and edited over a week. It was also shot in super sexy HD and it has to be viewed at such a quality. Due to this need he has uplaoded it to Vimeo so he can get feedback from it before the final version is premiered. So here is the link for you all to see it.

http://vimeo.com/898588

If you want to comment but don’t want to join Vimeo you can do so here. All comments here will be forwarded directly too him.

EDIT: He is currently being featured on Vimeos HD Channel. Well done Dunc.

Carrying on from Heathers birthday on Friday we attended a small(ish) party that was kind of a joint celebration between Heathers Birthday and my sister Emily’s.

There was only one rule… Wear a wig!

For Heathers birthday we stayed in the malmaison in Leeds. We like jumping on massive beds so thats what we did.
