Lookit the stuff I got!

So one of the fun things about being part of a tight knit community of international nerds on the internet is that every so often a bunch of people will up and send each other a bunch of crap in a box!   I sent Lord Mad Hammer stuff, and Wildcard sent me stuff! This stuff I’m gonna show you now! Check it out!   And on the other side!           There’s tons more stuff, but I don’t wanna bore you too much.   ok one more thing….     Anyway, thanks to Wildcard for the…

Awesome Maniac Mansion fan-video by GamerVision. I don’t know why they haven’t made this damn game over for the modern consoles. Come to think of it, I never realized how creepy it was til I saw it as live action. Three total stranger break through someone’s home adn rummage through their stuff. Huh.

Fantasizing about the little people living in the walls. Arrietty

So I saw the US version of Arrietty this weekend; a Studio Ghibli, Inc production. As Studio Ghibli films go, this one did not disappoint. Had a great story and definitely kept me entertained through and through. Even left me with a bit of half closure; just enough for me to imagine my own future for the main characters. However its not the film that I want to write about here. I kinda suck at reviewing and I think anything more that I say about it would just be a disservice to the film. I will say though, that if like…

Sounds to Stare At a Monitor

Music. It’s a powerful thing.  Something that can bring both joy and tears- kinda like a puppy that has just eaten your favorite pair of 300 dollar shoes. Damn that dog. Anyway, like many of you I work in an office all day. Like many more of you I work in front of a computer monitor all day- which means sometimes your mind wanders. When the mind is left to drift you’d be surprised about the stupid fuckin’ tunes that pop into your head.   Here’s ten songs that get stuck on and off in my head on a weekly…

8 Doctors, 37 Companions, 157 Adventures, 26 seasons and 1 movie later…

On January 8th I posted something on Facebook. “the internet says I should have been watching Doctor Who for the past 45 years, who am I to argue? I guess i’ll give it a shot.” The feedback mostly said that as long as I just watched the show from where it picked up in 2005 I should be ok. Fuck feedback. I set about finding every piece of Doctor Who footage I could. No easy task by the way, apparently the BBC decided to destroy a good chunk of the first seven seasons of the show. Never the less, in…

Still teaching myself how to draw with the tablet. It seems we are getting better. The original one was a sketch scanned in and cleaned up. This one is straight photoshop, with background help from photographs of our drunken antics.

National Geographic built the house from ” Up” for their program entitled ” How Hard Can it Be?”   Pretty nifty if you ask me. See the video below, I promise no large children or collared dogs were harmed. :[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rV6rNqin4P8]

You Know, For Kids.

First of all I’d like to apologize to my leagues of reader for my absence. I have no excuse, except for the lack of a good topic, but now I have two, so I’m gonna get this one done, and hopefully if apathy doesn’t take me I’ll get a second one out within the week. For now though, let’s talk about kids movies. This weekend I was running around, and stopped off in a drug store to buy some sundries and somehow got sucked into a conversation. Worker:  I got Megamind. I’m gonna watch that shit tonight! Cashier:  I don’t…

I’m Just Another Thundercats Ho

February 28, 2011

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWrh1axPj0M] Cartoon Network released a snippet of their new Thundercats cartoon last week. Now I was totally obsessed about this show as a kid- but watching it on Toonami in college-frankly, it sucked balls. I thought the voice acting was horrible, the animation was nothing like the intro but damn the theme song kicked ass. Five-year-old me LOVED this show and I totally wanted the Sword of Omens  toy. Granpa gave me a broom shaped like a sword taped with electrical tape instead. Meh, we made due. The upgrade, however, looks pretty sweet. Even if Snarf doesn’t talk, at least…
