The first post of 2018-

-and definitely not the last.

Nothing major this time, I just thought people might appreciate seeing this recent Instagram post of mine; a piece of the Berlin Wall. Literally a piece of history.

Good bye and good riddance to 2017

I'm spending the last couple of hours of 2017 doing what I did at the end of 2016; social media. Yeah, social media is frivolous, but after the year I've had, I just want a bit of enjoyment. Perhaps I will go into length as to what happened this year. Perhaps not. All I know for sure is I'm more than ready to put the year behind me. And I hope that 2018 will be a much happier and more productive year, because the alternative is catastrophic.

Hopes for Hal-Con 2018

1, See more friends and acquaintances.
2, Eat more sushi.
3, Find more deals.
4, Not get sick again.
5, Not spend too too much.
6, Meet more celebs.
 7, Have at least two cosplays.

Thoughts on Alita: Battle Angel

Full disclosure; I own (and have read) all nine volumes of the original Battle Angel Alita manga. I have seen both episodes of the OVA. I've only got a couple volumes of Last Order, and have not followed the series for quite some time. To illustrate to you just much time I've spent away from this franchise, Mars Chronicle was completely new to me.

We've known that James Cameron was interested in adapting Battle Angel Alita for a long time now, early '90s I think.

I didn't really get interested in the series until 2008-9. I ordered volume 1 at the local bookstore, and I was hooked. The art, the detail, the story. It all pulled me in and kept me there for eight more volumes. I started losing interest in Last Order, I kind of forgotten about Alita.

My apologies for a lack of posts this year.

Family issues have taken a lot of my time. I'd rather not go into details.

I will probably not be posting as much art to this blog. But I do want to post more writings.

If I Wrote A Sixth Season of the 2012 TMNT

Despite the news that Eric Bauza will be portraying Master Splinter and Rob Paulsen will be taking over as voice director, I still have reservations about Rise of the TMNT, the new series debuting in 2018. (Raph ain't no leader.)

As much as I complained about the 2012 series, I feel like it wasn't beyond saving.


So, if you'll indulge me and my fanboyism and poor grammar, here is what I would do if Nickelodeon had said to me "Hey. Write us a season."

Captains

A commissioned work, an encounter between Captain Absolutely and Captain Hero, two superheroes who have little in common, besides their voice actor, one Jess Harnell.






Sorry for the lack of updates. It's been a long couple of months...

Cloverfield review (2008)



When Transformers premiered in theatres in July of 2007, movie-goers got a surprise with the debut of a new movie trailer. It started off with footage of a surprise party for a man named Rob, who has just taken a job in Japan. But as time passes, the lights go out and the earth trembles, as a nightmarish howl pierces through the night. The confused and frightened party-goers do what comes naturally in this situation; head to the rooftop of the building to see just what’s going on. The man behind the camera comments to Rob that he probably should have left earlier, just as a huge explosion emanates from the harbour, sending flaming debris falling onto the buildings. Rob and company then run to the streets below just in time to run for cover as a large metal object crashes into a building, then drops to the streets below as the panicked people run for their lives. The large metal object is the head of the Statue of Liberty.
