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.

The World is Round

23 Apr

So basically I was a little premature with my video of our Around the World trip as the route has now been altered ever so slightly.

Basically we have now finalised it and booked it, so there is no going back.

The final Itinerary is as follow:

  • Depart Manchester
  • New York (4 nights)
  • Change in Los Angeles
  • New Zealand (5 weeks)
  • Change in Sydney
  • Tokyo (2 nights)
  • Arrive Manchester

We basically removed Fiji from the trip to save ourselves some money and also buy ourselves extra New Zealand time. Overall its worth while as on average it saved us approx. £800 for the 3 days in Fiji which is a massive saving on a journey like this.

I am excited for Christmas in Paradise.

Birthdays, Buried Buckets, Sleeping by the Fire & Hobbits’s

15 Apr

Haven’t unloaded my recent shenanigans recently so thought I better before it goes to an unwieldily array of coloured pixels.

These lot a from a whole array of things that I have been doing recently in my spare time. Most recently of which was a journey to London for Heathers christmas/birthday present. Was only short but very rewarding.

How Stean Icicles

Yesterday was not an average day. Gorge walking the How Stean gorge during the day, not too far from where I gained a large scar on my head (Pateley Bridge) but still in the middle of nowhere. Went up with Ben and Phil after there last minute wakeup call and a rush drive to Ulleskelf to catch a lift with Ben (always a adventure being driven by him). We took a group of Ben’s relatives and friends down who had never done it before. I soon started to feel old though as the freezing water soaked through the broken wet suit I ended up with. Im looking forward to Arthritis that old age and a decade of jumping of waterfalls is sure to bring. For anyway who has never done anything like this I highly recommend trying it.

Mr. Beasley

Then in the evening I rushed back to Hull and tasted some audible delights from The 39 Steps and the beat monsters Mr. Beasley at Lamp, who are a local to the Hull area so they seemed to be having a good time with some old friends in the crowd. Incidentally the beatmaker, who I will call Easley (to make things simple) looked just like some kid who used to go to my school. Fitzy. This is not a good look for anyone really. But do search them up and give them a listen as they have some very nice music.

When the night was over I found my car sitting there being all like “so… what I got a flat, what you gonna do about it” which was annoying. Mainly because no one really wants to change a tire at 1.30am. Lucky thing Brad was on hand to use those muscles he pumped up the other week on a free day at the gym and took my tire off with me. kind of sucked the night and day up a bit, but now I have slept on it I can forgive this hiccup for it to make way for what was a pretty hardcore day.
