Weight and Stuff Report – 14 November 2013

Up by an insignificant amount today. Or not, depending on the scale’s oddness.

I went for a walk at lunchtime, accompanied by my *cough* Fujifilm X-E2. Yes, I seem to have got another little Fuji beastie. This is the successor to the quite nice X-E1, which comes with faster autofocus, a bigger rear screen, and the same sensor and other bits to the stunningly good X100S. More about it later, but here are a few of todays photos, all of which are what are known as SOOC. That’s straight out of camera – these are the JPGs the camera created, and all I’ve done is export them at a reduced size.

Here’s some art, to be found behind the Sage:

Doctor Who – The Night of the Doctor

As part of the build-up to the 50th anniversary special, the BBC have released a mini-episode that’s sort of a prequel. It answers at least one of the questions people have been asking (and the answer isn’t a surprising one, but that’s not a Bad Thing). But there is one thing you might not have been expecting. Well, I wasn’t, anyway. It’s on the BBC site, and no doubt will be all over the internet by now, but here’s the link to the official source:

The Night of the Doctor

Oh, and Wooooooooo Whooooooooooooo!
