Spike Tripper

Remember our old pal Spike? Well, on November 27th his lovely wife gave birth to their son Kieran Edward Tripper! The child's first name, Futureprobe Edward Tripper, would have sounded weird in school so they changed it. Other name ideas included Century Three Tripper, Hoot Gibson Tripper and Abraham Lincoln.

Congratulations old pal!

  5. Futureprobe Edward Tripper . . .it had a nice ring to it. Still, he would have gotten teased mercilessly in school, so it's best that they gave him a regular name.

  6. Awesome! Great shot. Amazing the detail that they put into Horizons... now where is the picture of Mom's face?

  7. About the most advanced and risky thing I did while during my video and audio shootings aboard Horizons was that I used a telescoping radio antenna, about a meter in length when fully extended, and I had an inductor pickup coil fastened to the end of the antenna with a line dangling all the way back to my Marantz three-headed sound recorder. My objective was to utilize the extendability of the antenna to get my inductor somewhat close to some of the AA sound emitters so I could capture at least a few of the AA dialogue loops. Wasn't very successful-darn! But that didn't stop me from experimentin' -hee-hee!
