好玩有型1比8的Aston Martin V8 Vantage遙控車

By admin, August 2, 2010 11:30

雖然是遙控車﹐但1比8的大傢伙來的也夠氣勢﹐前後燈可以在向前倒後分別亮燈﹐還有兩級換擋加速﹐開車時發出模擬引擎咆哮聲﹐最利害的是竟然可以玩出一點點“漂移”的效果﹐整架車在最後衝刺時打轉﹐然後改變方向。

這台Aston Martin V8 Vantage做的最好看的是車尾巴﹐比真車還要大和短﹐加上那誇張的輪子﹐的確讓我高興了好一陣子。

就快賣給人﹐臨別前拍照留念。

經典中的經典﹕BENZ 1955鷗翼SLR

By admin, July 31, 2010 22:19

從去年頭CMC公佈此產品後就一直在等待﹑到近3個月的推遲﹑前兩個星期終于摸到了樣品﹐直至今天才第一時間跑去車模店把它捧了回家。

喜歡50年代奔馳鷗翼的朋友們可能會問﹐這部怎麼跟普通版的300SL長相不太一樣﹐要知道此鷗翼SLR不同彼鷗翼SL﹐它來的其實更加跑味濃厚。題外話﹕當年的那次歷史性賽道悲劇令BENZ決定退出以後所有的比賽﹐SLR也就從那時起在人間慢慢地消失了。

自己覺得CMC的做工越來越嚴謹﹑部件也越來越精細﹐作為玩家們當然也越來越愛不釋手。看那漂亮的弧線﹑細緻的車輪鋼絲﹑紅色的內飾還有那可以旋轉90度角的小窗等都添加了這鷗翼的觀賞度和收藏樂趣。

這下好了﹐它終于可以跟原來Minichamps的銀色奔馳300SL結為夫婦了。

Autoart Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-2 Balboni & Porsche

By admin, July 14, 2010 11:56

I saw the real orange LP560-2 Balboni in Lamborghini’s show room last month, and it’s quite shape especially with the stripe deco and the coming Porsche 959 is also another highly expected collector’s item from Autoart, hopefully its upgraded quality can bring much improvement over Exoto’s 10 years old Porsche 959.

Prince Graphite Original, The very 1st Generation

By admin, July 14, 2010 11:32

Recently, I acquired a rare piece of collector’s item and almost complete my POG collections except the mid and mid-plus versions. It is the very first generation of POG, the one with 1 stripe, head size 110 (though a bit bigger than other POG 110 4 stripes and heavier). This version came out around 1978 and Made in USA. This version of POG was used by many big names back in the 80s, super stars like Andre Agassi, Gabriela Sabatini and of course my favouite, Michael Chang.

Searching through the net, I discovered there are actually two different versions of POG with 1 stripe, see the followings:

POG with 1 stripe – very 1st version, no side deco (ie, blank on both side)

POG with 1 stripe - the 2nd version, note Prince Logo and side deco

Some more information I found on Tennis-Warehouse Forum

POG 1 = Tear dropped shaped head single line with no grommets/no bumper and no printing on top or side or racket (possibly just sticker) except for Prince/graphite- circa 1978

POG 2 = Tear dropped shaped head, single line with grommets/no bumper no printing on top or side or racket (possibly just sticker) except for Prince/graphite- circa 1980?

POG 3 = Normal shaped head, single line with grommets and bumper, printing on side is “graphite series 110″ top has no printing front is Prince/Graphite. Printed stringing weight is 70-80 – Circa 1983

POG 3.5 = Same as 3 but side says “graphite 110″, String weight 60-75
Circa ?

POG 4 = Norm head, 4 line with grommets/bumper, printing on side is “graphite 110″, top is “110″ , side sticker says “series 110″ front is Prince/Prince- , Printed stringing weight is 60-75 – Circa 1987

POG 4.5 = Same as POG 4 but top is printed “oversize”, side is “graphite oversize” , front is Prince/Prince, printed stringing weight is 50-60 -
Circa > 1987 (any ideas?)

POG 5 = Straight shaft-Not sure of OS had straight shaft?

POG 6 = Tour

本地極其誇張的樓盤廣告

By admin, July 14, 2010 11:08

今天又見陶傑好文

西班牙贏得世界盃,香港有何「啟示」?有。看看本地的樓盤廣告,名字越來越誇,最新的一個,叫「帝峰.皇殿」,其他還有皇廷、御花園、君臨天下、皇府山、御林皇府。中國人在潛意識裏極度迷戀帝皇,但民居敢僭稱什麼帝峰、皇殿,若在三百年前,北京知道了,必定滿門抄斬。

單反扮Cool秘訣 (轉文)

By admin, July 10, 2010 22:29

一定要選最Cool的相機

最粗的鏡頭

上就得上最大的遮光罩

直接把相機給蓋上

直徑最小也得77mm

什么閃光燈啊,柔光罩啊,手柄啊

能給他接的全給他接上

腰上別鏡頭包,包里面有鏡頭

口袋里放個Windows Mobile智能機算景深

HTC,屏幕特大那种

只要一拍照儿,甭管儿對沒對上都得來一句

The depth of field of the subject 1 meter away at F2.8 and 50mm is 0.04m with near limit of  .98m and far limit of 1.02m.

一口儿地道的專業味儿

倍儿有面子!!

肩上再背個三角架,材料用碳纖維的

光快裝板就買上十几個

再買個測光表,二十四小時測光

就是一個字儿——Cool!

買CF卡就得花個万八千的

你周圍攝友不是一頭一機就是一頭多機

你要是機身沒鏡頭多啊

你都不好意思跟人家打招呼

你說這樣的裝備,一套得花多少錢

我覺得怎么著也得五六万吧

五六万?那是入門

十万起

你別嫌貴,還不打折

你得研究文藝青年裝Cool心理

愿意買六万的鏡頭

根本不在乎在多掏六千買附件

什么叫裝Cool文藝青年你知道嗎?

裝Cool文藝青年就是,買什么東西都買最Cool的,不買最好的

所以我們文藝青年搞攝影的口號就是

不求最好,但求最Cool!

第二次車模大掃除

By admin, July 8, 2010 13:28

今天經過了5個小時馬不停蹄地收拾后,終于成功的令房間利用空間大大增加,比第一次的時候好得多。還有就是車模的層疊方式有改進,橫一排豎一排,這樣的力學擺法會減少對底層車模的壓力。

這次盤點後大概有275台左右﹐九個月增加了近80台﹐但的確以前想收藏的那些車模都已經進入了倉庫﹐是時候應該認真開始幫他們拍照了。

LEAPING WITH JAGUAR – 75th Anniversary Exhibition in H.K.

By admin, July 4, 2010 17:56

Jaguar is one of my favourite British super car makers besides Aston Martin and Bentley.

I saw 3 of the most wanted Jag in today’s exhibition. Signatures such as E-Type 4.2, MK2 and the Holy Grail XJ220! Also the latest XJ series, the design kept Jaguar XJ’s tradition, but tail seemed it’s borrowed from Bentley Continental Flying Spur, actually one of the potential customers commented it during his chat with the sales on-site. :)

古希臘的阿里士多德

By admin, June 22, 2010 12:32

陶傑今天的短文是關於哲學家的。

aristotle3[1]歐洲在中世紀,忽然重新發現了一個人,就是古希臘的阿里士多德。時值黑暗時代,羅馬教權壟斷了思想,民間許多知識份子,僧侶、貴族,紛紛從一千五百年前的阿里士多德論著裏找解悶的出路。

比起孔子,阿里士多德的論述更豐富。孔子的論語只一兩句話,不是失諸「阿媽係女人」之簡單,像「有朋自遠方來,不亦樂乎」之類,就是一個抽象空泛的「仁」。

阿里士多德不同,有邏輯學,形而上學,生物、心理,這一切,孔子都沒有什麼深入的探討。最重要的是,阿里士多德比孔子更 user-friendly,像一件貨,對消費者想要什麼,一切考慮周到。譬如,阿里士多德討論什麼是快樂─對於商人,快樂是財富;對於紳士,快樂是名氣,追求快樂,手段要崇高,這一點,比較像孔子說的「仁」。

但阿里士多德沒有把崇高往三十三重天的高處提昇,他回到地面:阿里士多德先承認人有各樣缺點,譬如物慾的揮霍或吝嗇,衝動和怯懦,但只要以理性衡量,取乎中庸,譬如,在奢侈和吝嗇之間,就是慈善的捐獻;在衝動和怯懦之間,就是勇敢,阿里士多德沒有叫人只許做那樣,禁忌那樣,只呼籲人在不一樣的處境,判斷正反兩極,作理性的結論。

阿里士多德的論說清晰,沒有像孔子一樣受後世曲解。真正的哲學,必是清晰而無從曲解的。”

 

Some of Aristotle’s famous quote:

“Happiness is the highest good, being a realization and perfect practice of virtue, which some can attain, while others have little or none of it…”

“All men by nature desire to know.”

“Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.”

“Change in all things is sweet.”

“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.”

Friendship is a single soul living in two bodies.”

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”

“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.”

“If things do not turn out as we wish, we should wish for them as they turn out.”

“It is possible to fail in many ways…while to succeed is possible only in one way.”

“It is simplicity that makes the uneducated more effective than the educated when addressing popular audiences.”

“Man is by nature a political animal.”

“Man perfected by society is the best of all animals; he is the most terrible of all when he lives without law, and without justice.”

“Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting a particular way…you become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions.”

No great genius is without an admixture of madness.”

“Philosophy is the science which considers truth.”

“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”

“The aim of the wise is not to secure pleasure, but to avoid pain.”

“The goal of war is peace, of business, leisure.”

“The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.” 

“The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.”

“The soul never thinks without a picture.”

“We give up leisure in order that we may have leisure, just as we go to war in order that we may have peace.”

“We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.”

“Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.”

“We cannot learn without pain.”

“Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods.”

“You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.”
