Grains!

emoticon:videocam I haven't posted for a while, but uhm... I've been busy. By way of compensation, here's a cartoon.

F-Minus Vegetarian Zombies

Well, I thought it was funny. In the next couple of entries I'll tell you some of the things I've been up to.

Stardust the Movie

emoticon:drive Neil Gaiman is one of my favourite authors. He conjures up phantasmagorical worlds that explore both the murky and the wondrous aspects of the human psyche.

Movies usually manage to ruin books, luckily I haven't read Stardust and the trailer makes it look superb. Laughing

The movie is due in August. It has a 'star-studded' cast (no pun intended), including Ricky Gervais of all people. From the trailer he looks well cast. Smile

I rarely go to the cinema, but I might have to make an exception for this one...

Sad News to Report

emoticon:baldguy With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote 'The Hokey Cokey' died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.

They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started...

Oh, I've just returned from a second visit to Poland, Poznan this time (very beautiful, but no pictures sorry). It was another programming conference, so you can read the Tech-heavy report here.

Online Comics: The Joy of the Intarweb

emoticon:Lithium Oh how the internet has enrichened our lives. Providing dramatic changes in the way we communicate, no aspect of the online revolution has touched my life more than e-comics. Razz

My only two 'dailies' are Frazz and Dilbert.

Just about everyone has heard of Dilbert, the cubicle bound engineer enjoying the corporate world. It's only funny 'coz it's true. Smile

Dilbert and hosing the company

Less people seem to have heard of Frazz, and it is perhaps a slightly more acquired taste. I think it is hilarious though. It carries the same sort of humanity as Calvin and Hobbes, along with a sprinkling of literary references and Jef Mallett's humour.

Is google making us ignorant

The next two are 'occasional' comics, but both have a large enough back-catalogue to keep you diverted from meaningful work for hours.

A Softer World is very much more 'adult' than the previous offerings. Alternately dark, sinister, bizarre and downright funny (sometimes all at the same time). Not for the faint hearted, but this comic carries a real atmosphere.

The perfect murder

Questionable content is also more adult, but a lot more harmless than A Softer World. Martin, Faye, Dora and an arthropod PC called Pintsize cavort in an almost recognizable [1] universe. One for geeks, anyway.

Questionable Content is full size, so I can't show you one here. There are a few more cartoons shown on the gallery pages if you're in desperate need of a fix.

[1]At least the women are realistically neurotic anyway. Wink

Calvin and Hobbes: The End ?

emoticon:movpy One of my favourite cartoons has long been Calvin & Hobbes. These (just on the vague chance that you've never heard of them) are the tales of the incorrigible boy Calvin, and his imaginary tiger.

Unfortunately the series ended a long time ago, and I thought I'd seen all of them. At least until I stumbled across the cartoon shown below. It claims to be the last ever Calvin & Hobbes cartoon.

Calvin & Hobbes, the end ?

So is it genuine ?

The Googlewhack Adventure

emoticon:firedrop2 I've just finished watching the Googlewhack Adventure by Dave Gorman.

It is very funny. It's not your usual standup comedy, and absolutely hilarious. Maybe slightly geeky, but hey. Smile

As a mild aside, creationism plays a minor walk-on part in the adventure, which is kind-of, sort-of what led to my last post... Just thought I'd mention it.

Shaggy Gets Busted

emoticon:music I've just come back from seeing Terry Pratchett in London. It was great fun. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get a chance to write something up about it.

In the meantime, here is a very silly cartoon clip based on Scooby Doo. It is created by my friend Fuchsiashockz: Shaggy Gets Busted.

sigh, the day after google took over YouTube they pulled this video. Odd as this is lots more copyright material there; and this is original (albeit made of clippings from Scooby programs). Oh well, when it goes up somewhere else I'll link to it.

V for Vendetta

emoticon:cross Remember the film V for Vendetta ? A futuristic nightmare vision of England overtaken by big brother. It's a great film, and to coincide with the release of the DVD, Fuchsiashockz is proud to bring you a Warnerbros competition to win various V goodies!

V for Vendetta Competition

Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V for Vendetta tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey (Portman) who is rescued from a dire situation by a masked vigilante (Weaving) known only as "V." Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he detonates two London landmarks and takes over the government-controlled airwaves, urging his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V's mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself ? and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with fear, cruelty and corruption.

Visit Fuchsiashockz for the full lowdown, including links to trailers, the official movie website and all the goodies you could win Exclamation

The Old Blog Archives

There was so much ancient wisdom distilled into my old blog, that I couldn't let it just creep ignominiously into the pages of cyber-history. More to the point I'm still getting some hits from google with the old entries. Here are the archives of my previous Blogger based blog.
