There is something about these types of games. Incredibly repetitive and all you do is build stuff kinda game. Think Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing and Viva Piñata. A Kingdom For Keflings is just like that but on a simpler scale. You play as some ugly giant or yourself (it uses Xbox avatars, was the first new game to do so!) and basically collect materials to build buildings from blueprints. You press A to hack stuff, put materials in building then purchase part to piece together each building. That’s it. You can also get these little creatures called Keflings to help as you let them hack stuff up or deliver materials to buildings. I just kick them and ignore them really. Continue reading
Free stuff is great, always accept free stuff! This time I have this box full of body products… and a clock. I see the relation between each item! Ok so it’s a random box of goodies related to Lambretta celebrating 60 years. 1947-2007. Wha? Has this been hiding for two years? Whatever the case I think the products are still much useable. Let’s have an examine! Continue reading
Am I running away from everything? Here I am, stood on the side of a bridge looking down at still water. No one has come to try to stop me see this through, this must be how things were meant to be. The sky is depressingly grey; at least the weather suits my mood. No wind, completely still. Hmm, usually there are ducks in the river, but all I see is tires and a rusty shopping trolley. Cars are usually driving across this bridge, always busy. But today… it’s dead. Do I even want to go out like this with no one about, no one caring? I thought this stuff happened with big fanfare as they try to tell you stop. The newspapers all send their troops to amass pictures. Instead it feels like I’ve already done it and the world has died instead.
I mean if I think about these actions I’m about to take it makes sense. Today I decided after little pre-planning, well I do have a planned script I was going to read to everyone. I even rehearsed the jumping off the bridge thing by jumping off my bed repeatedly till my mother told me to shut it. I have a good reason for doing this all though, wouldn’t a sloppy or failed death be a bit unfortunate? It would have to be done well, clean. I don’t know how I’d know if I did it well though… hmm.

This empty house
Nay, I’m here
On the couch
Where’s my Dear?
Ah well, Celeb Washing
Last weeks was better
This week lacks moshing
Best write my letter
Dear Dear how are you?
I’ve been looking all day
I didn’t eat your stew
This why you won’t stay?
I post it under the sofa
The letter vanishes thanks to hands
Come out from there you loafer
Dear I need you, love Dan
Good old Roald Dahl, amazing children’s author with some fun and twisted tales. This time we get a new film version of Fantastic Mr. Fox and it is all kinds of awesome.
It’s a simple tale I’m sure we’ve all heard at some point in our lives. Fox steals chickens, squabs and cider from three horrid farmers and the farmers try to run them down. Fox with his animal friends attempts to outsmart them. A simple yet fun and witty plot to work with leads for some brilliance. The whole thing is done in stop motion with some type of figures, it feels incredibly retro and the furry animals somewhat creepy but it really is awesome stuff. It doesn’t feel like a film you’d get now and it really does feel like a special piece of cinema. I also love how spontaneous it can be with random staring, awesome quips and excellent characters thrown into the mix. You get random crazed puppet dancing because it’s funny and some middle-aged worker singing a ditty. Amazing. I also love how they scoff down food, their expressions, the little attentions to detail are great and it really makes for a comfy film full of laughs. Continue reading
The Gogos I obtained in Chester the other day got bored. They went and made a brother out of blue-tak. It’s emotionless stare haunts me but it is fitting. It’s their Halloween Frankenstein. It is my nightmare.
Come together! AH Abbey Road, voted as the best album of all time in some places and sporting one of the most iconic covers of all time (I think Nirvana’s Nevermind wins there though) is now mine. Re-mastered like.
I seem to be sticking in the second half in The Beatles discography but I guess I like the less 50’s style and prefer the more quirky, modern sounds of the later albums. Continue reading
1 and 2 is a bit of a strange way to label this seeing as you can’t get the ten episodes separate over here; it is volume 1 and 2 from America stuck into on case. Ah well.
Darker Than Black is a modern-day tale of a strange phenomenon which as hit the world, a strange distorted place of mystery called Hell’s Gate which resides in Japan. The sky is now fake, with the stars being contractor’s life and these contractors are people gifted with strange powers at the cost of having to pay a contract which could involve drinking to sucking children’s blood. Brr. Each contractor joins some organisation and takes part in different tasks which is the layout of the stories within this series. The series is split into small two episode stories and in this volume you get 5 stories across 10 episodes. Continue reading
How are you? Hot
The weather isn’t nice. But I am.
Not much I can say but this… I said it all a million times already
That we are living on a line Sellotape
But everything is alright? Tomorrow and yesterday it is.
I’m going to hang up! But you already did…
