Hall of mirrors

Hall of mirrors, 6/10/19

It’s not quite the finale of Enter the Dragon but I still like this one. However, how come Joe gets on three times, one neatly in each third — and I’m only on once? Perhaps I am only part vampire. It would explain certain things.

Family playing Gauntlet

Playing Gauntlet, 18/2/17

The room full of vintage arcade and computer games at the National Media Museum in Bradford is a cheap form of entertainment during weekends and school holidays — and as a result has featured on this blog before. This family seem to be enjoying their time on the collaborative game, Gauntlet — if you grew up in the 1980s I’m sure you remember it…

Reliving it

Friday 30th December 2015, 2.35pm (day 1,588)

Playing Galaxian, 30/12/15

We could mock this guy for reliving the glories of his youth, but seeing as just after this I punched the air and shouted ‘Yes! High Score!’ after beating all-comers at Asteroids, I have no leg to stand on. Pictured at the National Media Museum, Bradford, this afternoon’s entertainment.

If this photo raises a prickle of recognition in you — even nostalgia — then I know how old you are. BBC Micro, pictured at the National Media Museum, Bradford.

The Wrong Trousers

Thursday 27th February, 1.30pm (day 917)

Feathers McGraw, 27/2/14

I know this could be sharper but shooting conditions were not ideal here, and this is all behind glass. Rightly so too, because this is the last surviving remnant of the Aardman animation, Wallace & Gromit movie The Wrong Trousers. All but one of the movie’s sets were destroyed in a fire at the studio in 2005. This was safely displayed at the National Media Museum, Bradford, at the time, and thus survived. I love this movie, and I love this miniature set. This is a good museum, we visited today as Joe is on half-term, and this is the best thing in it.

Joe shakes hands with himself

Saturday 15th February 2014, 2.20pm (day 905)

Joe in mirror, 15/2/14

As seen in the National Media Museum, Bradford, today, A concave mirror and some easy-enough positioning for the cameraman. I like the playing-card effect on this one. Technically it is also a self-portrait.
