Fever dreams

Fever dreams are intense, to say the least. Here’s one I had recently while I was poorly. I had to put some 100×100 green Lego bricks together in a perfect square, which was difficult because some of them were larger than others, some were different shapes – despite them all …

More nostalgic postings

The various *Fests we had were great, really good times were had by all there. RF has been a highlight of my life, for sure. I’m just going to list some links now, of some memorable posts. This was a nice one of Gizmo: He’s settled in nicely This one …

Two and a half months later…

Oh my, has it really been that long since my last post? That really is very bad of me, especially considering I could’ve knocked up a few smaller update posts on my phone during a lunchbreak at work or something. I’ve been in some pretty dark places between then and …

That didn’t feel like a war

So, I recently decided to start reading comics again, maybe get one of the omnibus-style publications every month so as to not go too crazy – and for whatever reason, I started with the Civil War trade-paperback. I got home and read it from cover to cover in one sitting …

Street Fighter: The Complete History

Hi. David got me this book a while back now, and I have been wanting to write about it for ages. While the main focus is art from Street Fighter II, the book starts with Street Fighter and before it ends up at Street Fighter IV it covers Street Fighter …

The power of X

I’ll try and keep the spoilers to a minimum, I won’t ruin endings or anything. As I said a few days ago, I felt like a traitor. From what I’ve heard, the Superman movie is good in a Summer blockbuster type way, but not faithful to the source material. Particularly, …

I feel like a traitor, kind of

For doubting Marvel… When we get a new cat I want to call it Richard Parker Oh yeah, before Star Trek started, there was a trailer for The Wolverine. It looked pretty badass. Being a Marvel kinda guy, really into the X-Men back in the day, I am well up …

When we get a new cat I want to call it Richard Parker

If you hadn’t guessed by the title, I watched the incredible film Life Of Pi recently. I loved the book, and while the film was a little slow to start, the delightful Richard Parker more than made up for it. Although he was CGI, he was very life-like, and behaved …
