Chimp my ride

I’m like half a month too late to offer a punctual response, but the blog’s up and running again. Flying Omelette tells me Dreamhost had been upgrading their servers, and that must’ve prompted some crummy coding in the WordPress database to screw up… we think. I’m still not entirely sure what happened, but it’s up […]

Stars and stripes!

I watched Captain America last night. I’d liked the trailers, but for whatever reason I was in no particular rush to see it. I’m glad I did, though! It’s no masterpiece of cinema, but as a dude who likes superheroes beating the crap out of Nazis, it thought it was thoroughly entertaining.

My stick is nicer than yours.

It’s been a quiet month. I dedicated practically all of May into the grunt work for it, and since then it’s been a slow, tedious grind to fill out the rest of it, but the Puchi Carat shrine has been revamped. It’s one of those things I was really excited about working on, and now […]

In blandest day

Went to see Green Lantern. It’s a decent bit of eye candy. I admit I was a bit biased when watching it, as I’ve been keeping up a little with DC Comics’ reboot and their marketing strategies – namely, how they expect people who see the movies of their franchises will then want to read […]

“He’ll never be the head of a major corporation.”

My dad, a friend and I planned to go see Green Lantern last night, only to be told it had been pulled. How long has the movie been out? I’ve heard offhand remarks about the movie’s crumminess, but I didn’t know it was bad enough to be pulled so quick! On the bright side, Transformers: […]

“I’m huuuuuge!”

So, I returned Super Mario Galaxy 2 yesterday. I’d gotten around 36 stars and had reached World 4, I think. I enjoyed the game. Yeah.

MY DOG WORKS AT NINTENDO

Hey guys I totally went to some flea market and there was a guy who said he worked at Nintendo and LOOK WHAT I GOT BIDDING STARTS AT 2K MONIES

Methane cometh from pig shit.

I watched Mad Max 3: Beyond Thunderdome. I guess when I said I wasn’t in a rush to see it, I didn’t mean I wouldn’t say no to it being suggested! The first two Mad Max flicks were unified in their rather bleak environments – the first one still had an infrastructure, but if you […]

This is paradise! (and it’s very nice!)

Watched Mad Max 2. Man, am I glad I did. So, remember the first Mad Max, where there was some degree of civilisation and Max had some kind of goal in life? Well, whoops, civilisation has only thinned out even more and Max is even more of a sullen, wandering soul. After stumbling across a […]

DIE! X-CHICKEN

Site progress: Kinda sorta nearly done! It’s mostly just a manner of tying everything together and fixing up the loose ends, though that’s probably going to be a bit gruelling. I’m hoping to have to done and uploaded by mid-June, but we’ll see what happens. I’m a mite concerned that after nearly a year of […]

We belong dead.

Well, things have been slow and awkward this month. Northern Ireland has been swamped with heavy rain and ferocious winds that’s kinda kept me indoors until yesterday, and life as a whole has been very meandering and sluggish. I get by, but it ain’t the most enjoyable of predicaments.

Frankie & Fritz – crime fighters of the sea!

I watched Frankenstein a couple of nights ago; the old 1931 version. Everyone knows this story. Do we even need a summary? Dude wants to create a functioning human being with science, and then the monster gets a bit uppity and eventually they both die. Bada bing. For a film over eighty years old, it’s […]

By Hemsworth’s nipples!

I’m getting increasingly concerned about how quickly this year is skimming me by. Are we really nearly halfway through? That’s not fair, mang! Well, what is there for me to say? From the viewpoint of a productive mindset, I’ve done a lot of work on the perpetually-upcoming site revamp, and although slowly progressing, it’s coming […]

Sonic Colours made me sad

Finally got around to covering Resident Bongo on Random Action Hour. It’s actually got some good bits, but the rampant repeating of sound effects and voices just gets grating real fast.   So, I rented Super Street Fighter IV about two weeks ago. It took a while to get into, if just because I’m a […]

I’m oldschool.

More Resident Evil goodness is happening by Random Action Hour.   How about some more really brief movie reviews of kids films? I caught the CGI film of Astro Boy a couple of days ago. It had decent animation and some surprise voice actors (Nicholas Cage as Dr. Tenma! Donald Sutherland as the evil president! […]

I only know one Resident Evil joke

The second part of the Resident Evil coverage is up on Random Action Hour. Get your sandwiches ready!   I watched Up a couple of nights ago. I’ve a bad habit of seeing commercials for animated films, thinking “I must go and see that sometime in theatres!” … and then I spend too long thinking […]

“You’re programmed to be an asshole!”

And so, I’ve finished the Alien quadrology (I can’t help but laugh every time I hear that) with Alien Resurrection. It is better than Alien3 in a lot of ways, but it just came across as the least appealing film. Ripley died in the last flick, but two hundred years later a new organisation clone […]

Rental night!

Paid another visit to Xtravision today, where I rented Transformers: War for Cybertron, Prince of Egypt, and Space Chimps. The last one was at my father’s choice. He’s got a thing for all things simian. Just a head’s up – this entry’s gonna be looooong and largely about Transformers. Just a warning for the many […]

Wankers! In! Spaaaaaaaace!

Watched Alien3 last night. I’d seen it once before years ago; it was actually the first movie in the Alien series I’d seen, but I couldn’t remember much about it besides the totally gratuitous deaths of everyone but Ripley from the previous movie – before the movie even begins! – and the ending, so I […]

Battle for Originality

Went to see Battle: Los Angeles, because that’s the kind of braindead movie one wants to watch after you’ve done nothing but feel ill and write code all day. When I say braindead, I really do mean it. The movie is practically Military Movie 101, it throws in so many clich├ęs. The first half hour […]
