The pressure just keeps building

So Game Trailers released their 'most anticipated' for computer games to be released in 2007, and Assassin's Creed is on there, not sure who puts the list together and how valid it is. But it's interesting to see the sorts of games we are up against.

You get to see some of my animation when the assassin is fighting, I'm the violence guy you see. It can actually very satisfying. Can you guess where we are?

Random pictures of the white stuff

Just after the snow fell the other week

View from my balcony the day after the snow.

Yep... more snow, you can see how deep it was.

Mo-cap exposed

Helped out another team with some motion capture on Thursday, unfortunately this involved a fake kiss, I was TOLD that it was needed, and of course being the perfectionist I am, we had to make sure that we captured it properly. My motivation was that I was being taken by surprise, we'll probably add some passion when we get the data back. But what you don't see is the little leg bend I threw in for effect.

One of the team members decided to add some music and a slow motion replay, and thought it was funny so might as well share it with you, I'm comfortable with my own sexuality.

Movin' to Australia

So Steve and Cari are leaving for Brisbane in the morning, and we all went around to Darryl and Stacy's place to see them off, yeah of course we were going to try and break them... Paul and Jeff devised a song, using the backing of "Back in the USSR" by the Beatles, hopefully that comes across in the video.

Movin' To Australia

Flew into Australia beach B.O.A.C
Had to leave the dog last night
Dream about Vic sittin' on my knee
Man I had a dreadful fright

Movin' to Australia
Don't know how lucky you are... Steve 'n' Cari
Movin' to Australia

Been here 20 minutes hardly know the place
Man it's nice to feel the sun
Kangaroo's are jumpin' all in my face
Boy I need to get things done...

Livin' in Australia
Don't know how lucky we are... Steve 'n' Cari
Livin' in... Livin' in... Livin' in Australia

Well the Bondi beach guys are a funny lot
They only like Cari's buns...
But I like patty's with my bread
I guess thats why they call me, Th, th, th, th, thumbs

Livin' in Australia
Don't to how lucky you are... Steve 'n' Cari
Livin' in Australia

Show us round the deserts full of crooks and theives
Can we feel your digiridoo
Cari mixes drinks with some help from Steve
Can we do your Barbarque

Livin' in Australia
Don't to how lucky you are... Steve 'n' Cari
Livin' in Australia

My 1st Photo Album by Kristjan S Zadziuk aged 29 and ¼

Added a public gallery, after cries from several people that I was only showing a few select pictures, it's not that I'm being select. It's the fact that a lot of the pictures I take are rubbish, but it seems the demand for my itchy camera finger is higher than I first imagined.

So I give to the unveiling of my photo gallery. Only put a few albums up so far, will be adding to them as time goes on. So for now, enjoy.

Steve is off, lets have a drink.

Steve is leaving to go to Austrailia with Cari next week, so it was all the excuse we needed to go out for some drinks.

Here are some of the pictures from the lads night out, Blake texted me the next morning saying that he had some mysterious bruising and 2 bottles of tomato sause in his fridge... Why did he need 2??? Posted by Picasa

To Whom it May Concern

Re: My Baggage

I am writing to you concerning my lost luggage, now I'm sure that you are extremely busy thinking up ways to ignore your customers, or to send them on a merry-go-round so that you never actually have to face anyone. But with you being the biggest airline in the world I would of thought that you wouldn't have any problems sending people bags to their destinations, I mean you do this supposedly thousands of times a day, every day of the week, right?

I appreciate the problems you had the week leading up to Christmas because of the fog, but you successfully delivered my bag to me at the airport then, so why oh why have you had problems sending my bag to me when everything is supposedly back to normal? My bag obviously is in your hands somewhere along the line, surely that little tag that gets put on a suitcase at check-in means something? It's been 3 days now, you must of come across it at somepoint, if passengers cannot trust you to look after our bags why should they travel with you? Yes you give us a couple of free drinks on the flight, and I have to admit that your selection of films especially returning to Canada is extremely good, but that is all academic if I don't receive my bag when I arrive.

We don't know what happens once the bag leaves on that little belt, do the baggage pixies take it to the plane them selves or is it just put on a random flight and it's pot luck if it arrives. You say that you aren't responsible for the contents, but that now seems like a lame excuse that's why I pay you the money I do for my flight, if I didn't care, I'd fly a lesser known airline, surely that's why people fly BA, because you're trusted? Especially at this time of year, you must have a lot of customers traveling back to places with their Christmas presents, how can we ensure that they are on our travel insurance, infact why should we? You are not supposed to expect your luggage to go missing, has your baggage handling got THAT bad?

Apparently 50% of all missing luggage going via Heathrow is from BA flights, your not the only airline flying in and out of there, why are your figures so bad. I actually feel like I've just given you my luggage in some giant con, the fact that you don't seem to follow up even after 3 days without even an update as to it's location is unbelievable.

I look forward to hearing from you (Ha ha ha) Mr/Ms BA Baggage Service guy/girl, as you continue your seemingly fruitless search for my bag.

Your's hanging on the phone,

Kristjan Zadziuk

PS If you haven't seen this yet, I'm not the only one. Sort it out BA, in the mean time I'll be following the BBC's advice on Lost Luggage, apropriately called the Montreal Convention.
