Gab, Currently V

My trip last month made me lose all momentum in blogging semi-regularly again. Even my posts on the trip and the con feel very forced. Here’s hoping I can can get back into it, because it’s been therapeutic. Angst-ing: I haven’t really painted, or drawn anything in a while. I just haven’t had the heart forContinue reading “Gab, Currently V”

Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters

Let’s get two things out of the way first: I am a huge fan of the books, and no, I don’t expect movie adaptations to be 100% faithful. That being said, this movie was terrible. I don’t understand how you can fuck this up. You’ve got great source material and a great cast (Nathan  Fillion,Continue reading “Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters”

Varekai!

Circuses have always held a dear place in my heart. Probably the product of watching Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland and Dumbo just a little too often growing up. My parents took me to my first circus in Nepal in 1993, but my first encounter with Cirque du Soleil wasn’t until Popular Mechanics for Kids featured Dralion in one of their episodes. So when they announcedContinue reading “Varekai!”

Gotham City Sirens #20 – Hell Hath No Fury Part One

I don’t know what Ivy and Catwoman are doing on the cover, but they weren’t in this issue at all. Stunning cover art by Guillem March as usual though. So issue #19 ends with Harley finally snapping and deciding to go after the Joker for everything she’s had to put up with during the courseContinue reading “Gotham City Sirens #20 – Hell Hath No Fury Part One”

Young Justice

I don’t think I was alone in slightly recoiling in horror when it was revealed that the Robin and Kid Flash in Young Justice were going to be Dick Grayson (former Robin, former Nightwing & currently one of of two Batmans) and Wally West (former Kid Flash, currently one of two Flash-es), but like most things I’mContinue reading “Young Justice”

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

My DS basically exists for two things: the Ace Attourney series and the Professor Layton series. So in between those game releases, my DS doesn’t get a lot of use. When I got my copy, I tried to really take my time and to make it last as long as I could but I justContinue reading “Professor Layton and the Unwound Future”

How To Train Your Dragon 3D

When I saw the dragon in the trailer, I knew I had to watch this. I was expecting a lot of cute and not a lot of plot but I was wrong and I’m glad because it was wonderful. ♥ I thought it was a bit odd for Vikings to have Scottish accents, but theyContinue reading “How To Train Your Dragon 3D”

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus

First of all, why are all the posters for this so ugly? This is the most decent-looking poster released for this film. Doctor Parnasus, leader of a travelling performance troupe, is a centuries old mystic who has the ability to enter minds via a magic mirror that allows you to escape into your imagination and toContinue reading “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus”
