“This is probably a stupid question, but do you hire real birds to make your chilli, or do you just get guys in costume?”

… I asked the canary wearing a chef’s hat. Today’s observation: I have no idea what last night’s dream was all about. It involved going go-carting with my friends; being invited to a group of medieval knights living in the mountains (who called themselves the Nigerian Knights, but had surprisingly few Nigerians); a group of […]

Update!

So, uh, I decided to go back to an unfinished project I started a little over four years ago. I sure hope somebody’s still interested in that stupid thing, otherwise I’ll have killed an afternoon for naught! (if anything, it’s better to have killed an afternoon for something you can still look at afterwards. You […]

“… he’s adopted.”

Went to see Avengers Assemble. Can’t say I was too disappointed, really. Expected some superhero rompy-time fun, and that’s precisely what I got. Just for giggles, let’s see if I can save myself the time of recapping and let a picture do the talking. … just pretend that the Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow are […]

Half cop, half man

Watched all three RoboCop movies earlier in the week. Thoughts!

Dream and friends

I watched Inception on April 13. Here’s a review from then! Heh. The internet has been raving up and down about it since its release… what, two years ago? I can’t even count the amount of Cracked articles there are about it, and apparently dubbing something mildly paradoxical as “[noun]-CEPTION” is the height of internet […]

Back from the melting pot

Oh, hey. I went away to England for nine days to see my brother (who for those who like internet continuity, I mentioned was moving to England way back in early 2011). I thought of leaving a message, but I figure, who would notice? The blog’s been totally untouched for weeks at a time at […]

It don’t take any fuel ’cause the rocket’s in my pocket

Bloop. Some updates! There’s Games I Own reviews, some music, a couple of sprites, and a Bomberman update that could’ve been a lot more substantial if I had the patience to work on it. Recapping a game’s content in a blank, encyclopaedic manner only has its kicks for so long. Sometime!

Vestigial arms, romance and anatomy

Went to see John Carter last night. Had no expectations, but definitely enjoyed myself – it’s not the far-out, totally alien sci-fi experience I’ve been interested in seeing on the big screen, but it’s a fun ol’ romp with some fantastic eye candy. I’d be lying if I said I completely understood the story, though. […]

MATT DAMON IN DA HOUSE

That sounds really awkward. Could you imagine going to a rental store and having a bunch of movie stars lurking about? Traipsing about and listening in on customer chatter? Uncomfortable. And restocking shelves is bad enough, but having to pat Hugh Jackman on the back and tell him that being in Happy Feet wasn’t a […]

“Who are you calling a you-you?”

I have been sleeping terribly these past few days, and feeling like rotten hell to boot. If there’s one upside from this, I’ve been having rather outlandish fanfiction-esque dreams relating to TV shows.

Holding out for a hero

It’s been a long time since I’ve talked about Metal Slug, hasn’t it? A couple of days ago a Korean fellow emailed me with some pretty juicy material found in Metal Slug 5 – we’re talking unused areas, blocked-off alternate paths and totally unique backgrounds! Seriously, check this out. Those cogs apparently exist at the […]

Bomb on board

We’ve got ourselves an update on the Bomberman shrine, and a new General Writing. Don’t forget to check the title tags! Watched Flightplan a couple of days ago. It’s a bit like two films wedged together – one is an atmospheric, almost psychological thriller about a crazy lady on a plane who claims to be […]

Housewife

Watched Monster House. Well, uh, it was nice to finally watch it, but it did nothing for me. Mind you, the fact one of the writers apologised for it might have skewed my first impression. There’s a grumpy old dude who don’t like kids! One kid, DJ, spies on the house and notices that toys […]

Soupy twist

I spent New Years Eve watching the 2009 Sherlock Holmes with the folks, and just so happened to get invited to see the sequel with my uncle on New Years Day. I can’t really say much, it’s about what you’d expect if you saw the first one – the same kind of romping around, the […]

Snow him so well

So, Christmas has come and gone, December’s coming to a close, the new year’s approaching, and I’ve been so much of a self-absorbed shithead that I’ve barely even noticed. Story of my life! In my defence, Jingle All The Way was not shown once on television, so what’s the point of caring? Instead they showed […]

Tumbling slowly

There’s an update to the Games I Own section, and the links page has got some new links and a lot less words. I figure there’s gotta be one page on the site where I’m not babbling multiple paragraphs about nonsense.

Vertical

I watched Vertigo yesterday. I won’t deny it’s one of those classic movies that, although great to finally see, didn’t offer many surprises since it’s been parodied so many times. Heck, the Sledge Hammer! episode “Vertical” basically compresses the two hour-long movie into 22 minutes without too many omissions, if you don’t mind it being […]

Snappy, happy monkey

I can owe a number of trivial audio-related parts of my life to the cassettes my dad would play while driving me to primary school years and years ago. Most importantly, it introduced me to The Goon Show, which probably led into my interest in radio production and absurdist humour. It introduced me to Flanders […]

Don’t look a gift mule in the mouth

I was going to say that I wouldn’t trust an equine wearing tights… but then I realised that was just the tint of its wings. I wouldn’t trust one wearing wings, either. Today’s observation: Replacing all usages of the word “epic” with “big ol’” makes it infinitely more charming. Kirby’s Big Ol’ Yarn. Big Ol’ […]

Les Gees!

I watched The Iron Giant last night. I’m in one of those miserable curmudgeon-y moods where I’m totally uninspired and a colossal bore and curse arbitrarily to myself (because that’s what bummed people do!), and as such I’m really disappointed that I don’t even have much to say about it. But I really quite enjoyed […]
