Pre-Production FINALLY started on the “Dirty Boxers: Car Wash” project

From time-to-time I do come up with some AMAZING ideas – come on, you know it’s true – and I think the best by far still has to be the Dirty Boxers: Car Wash concept that will be coming up very soon.

Now, if you’ve have been living under a rock [or wheelie bin – times are hard I know] for the past few weeks, and somehow don’t know what the Car Wash project is, then let me explain.

In a nutshell, the Dirty Boxers: Car Wash will be a 7 min [or so] video episode where I [your fearless leader] goes to take his car. But like most things, sitting in a large piece of machinery while it cleans the crap off my bonet for 7 mins is… well… BORING! The main reason for this is because I do not actually look after my car that well. I’ve always been under the belief that my car is a tool, and is not something to clean, polish or worship.

So to somehow help encourage me to look after my car better, I thought it would be a genius idea to invite complete strangers in to my vehicle to teach me a new skill or trick – to help pass the time. So imagine two strangers locked in a car; surrounded by water, soap, and large amounts of noise – and they have the length of the wash itself to start [and complete] learning a new skill. Exactly, GENIUS IDEA!

While this concept has been bouncing around my head, I’ve been keeping my eye out for a decent [and affordable] camera[s] that could capture the painful experience for your enertainment. The obvious solution would have been to purchase a selection of Go Pros and a suite of accessories – but of course this would be foolishly expensive. This lead me to find Techmoan on YouTube about 10 months ago. He is a fella from the Manchester [UK], who reviews [mostly] strange and unique cameras, tech and gadgets that he has picked up [mostly] from eBay, [mostly] shipped in from China.

Eventually, and the reason for this post, is that he has stumbled across an almost perfect little windscreen car camera called a “808  #18 DR32”:

Obviously, this is still early stages at the moment – especially as now I need to focus on how we’d capture the sound effectively – but thought I’d give you all a sneaky look in to the scrapbook mind of mine 😛

Please check out Techmoan on YouTube and his website [http://www.techmoan.com] – cause I’m a HUGE fan, and think the geeks amongst us would really appreciate his work too!

It be Friday…

Leigh is happy and sad that Charlie boy’s show is gone, he has multiple personalities I think we can all agree. James @wild_smurf001 calls in and talks about security around the olympics, its a right kerfuffle. Ben @splinter701 and LoneSQRL @lonesqrl also call in right away to give an air of official-ness to the recording. LoneSQRL gives a summary of the learning that happened during the week. There was a shooting in an American movie theatre, our wise and witty panel discusses this incident. We have a heavy discussion comparing gun licenses to automobile licenses and security in general.
We discuss Friday issues, such as parties, fireworks and dogging.
Cameras will be strapped to dogs heads to improve surveillance on police operations. Our expert panel discusses this in detail.
