Snooow!

Snooow!

Lookie here! What's that white stuff... on the ground?! Could it really be..? Is it cotton candy? A blanket of spun sugar? A massive cobweb full of small squeaky crawling arachnids? Is it the dandruff of God? The ashes of Time? Frozen flakes of diluted Water?! It's winter, FINALLY! For at least a day.

Nintendo DS VS GBA

Nintendo DS VS GBA

I wrote this post draft years ago, at a time when I had only recently switched to Nintendo DS after years of loyal GBA playing, and I honestly thought the former console had some major benefits over the latter.

It does, but the benefits are slim compared to the cons, and as the benefits of the original GBA don't all carry on to the modified form of the GBA SP - there really isn't much you can do with a GBA that you wouldn't be able to do better with a DS. Only if you don't compare the actual games, the GBA may pose a serious challenge. After a few years of getting used to the NDS, and then a few days of playing some GBA once again: I feel like it's time to finally post this thing!

Week 50 – Christmas Closing…

Christmas is closing in fast! I've had plenty of time, for plenty of projects, but suddenly I'm metaphorically snowed in and wondering what I should prioritize. We had our first real snow this winter a couple of days ago, it melted fast, froze over and covered the world in a cold hard blanket of invisibly slippery substance. Then it melted again, and this time it didn't freeze! Haha!

I'm back to playing Pokemon Ruby (to attain Pokemon for the next gen Pal Park import feature in Pokemon Diamond) late nights after ferociously reading through my first four Harry Potter books (will borrow remaining trilogy). I'm hooked on the one-part Killer Mike's hiphop duo collabo Run The Jewels newest album, creatively titled Run The Jewels 2 (here's one video from this album and one from the last one) and I just discovered some filters in Fireworks that let you do amazing things!

I'm planning to make a little interactive showcase of all the alternative versions that Christmas Card spawned before reaching its final form, with selectable layers so you can see exactly how everything combines. It's my first art project where I've 1) drawn a card with purely pencil and paper 2) scanned the drawing 3) colored it in Fireworks and 4) outlined it in Flash 5) removed certain parts through Fireworks 6) inverted the stars and erased the background 7) covered all cut lines with additional outlines 8) added original layers with filters for overdrawn detail 9) dotted a thousand stars and 10) added hidden Illuminati symbolics... because that's what the collab was all about. Phew. Finished. Finally.

I also just scraped together the last hexalist update. I just started playing Crystal Story II (it's addicting). I was just made aware there's a TV series made off of the Transporter movies! I watched the first four episodes yesterday, it felt generic and plain and had a crappy theme song, and no Jason Statham, but the police officer is still the same. I've done a bunch of other interesting things, I think, but it's past midnight and my memory's currently malfunctioning, so I'm off to Pokemon.

New on the blog: 6 movie review and these (a blog) other (a music video) things (a kickstarter plug). Also check out the early drafts for that Christmas card I've been working on! Here's last week.

The Getaway (1972)

The Getaway (1972)

This is a getaway movie like I want it, a modern-day (err seventies) Bonnie & Clyde, with car chases, gunfights, hardened criminals and true love all in one big pail of gritty, dusty, on-the-way-to El Paso Mexico awesomeness, and the getaways make sense, they feel believable, even if I imagine security'd be a hell of a lot tighter today.

It's a glimpse of the good old days, and some good old craze, guns ablaze in wood hallways! Oh, actors? Stevie McQueen and Ali MacGraw! Great watch!

Drop Zone (1994)

Drop Zone (1994)

It starts off with two US Marshalls on a plane, two brothers (first one Wesley Snipes) transporting a prisoner. Soon there's a hijacking, one brother ends up dead, all the blame on him, and the prisoner/his kidnappers on the loose. US Marshall #1 starts looking for clues, ends up at the mercy of a female skydiving instructor, and from there on out it gets crazy!

Expect some fights, plenty of sky-diving (maybe this was the one that inspired Point Break?), bonding, and one big heist, all accompanied by that awesome eighties guitar-type music. Well, nineties, same thing. Overall: it's one great action movie in classical Wesley Snipes style, and the only thing that confuses me is why his face is all over the movie cover when he's just the hero. He's great, but this movie is about more than just him! Good watch.
