I was on Twitter when someone tweeted an image of a robot on a subway car. The design of the bot grabbed me, but the slick U.I. is what pulled me into the underworld that is Subsurface Circular.
This isn’t a think piece or a prediction article where I theory craft the hell out of this film. You want that, go somewhere else.
Beer is probably one of the most refreshing drinks to have on a hot night. Cold, crisp, it’s ancient recipe perfected through the generations as each round of humanity takes a shot at making the nectar of the gods. I am not going to tell you what to drink here, I’ll leave that for your… Read more »
Winter was wonderful as water fell from the sky in California. Most appreciated it while many sheered, “When did I move to Seattle?” Just know, we hate those people, they don’t represent all of us and they have been sent off on an ice float. It is said that they shouted, “When did I move… Read more »
Morning jolt: Stop it movie trailers!
Movie trailers were, at one point, a big love of mine. There is an art to creating such a piece of media, but lately, these bastards are getting out of control. I will use The Avengers: Age of Ultron (Known moving forward as TAAU) as an example. This film’s predessor made, oh, a few billion dollars when… Read more »
Morning jolt: Why are dolls creepy?
Dolls, they are collectible, loved, and terrifying. When I was a kid my grandmother had a guest room that had a line of dolls sitting on a rail along all four walls of the room. They sat there, smiling, staring at me while I kept watch on them to make sure they didn’t come alive… Read more »
Morning jolt: Finish something
Starting a project is easy, even thinking about it is easy, but finishing something is oddly hard. Not many people can do it and it’s strange to think that a lot of the time it isn’t an outside force stopping us from completing a task, but ourselves. In some cases it’s because we get tired… Read more »
Morning jolt: Artists, artists everywhere!
Everyone is creative in one form or another. We tend to think of those people who are really creative as ‘artists’. Artist is a title that seems to be thrown on anything that is either terrible looking or is grand beyond measure. It can be used sarcastically or seriously depending on whom it is being applied… Read more »
Morning jolt: Wondercon 2015 & how not to cosplay
I went to Wondercon 2015 this weekend and it was a blast! I hadn’t been to a con since Comic-Con 2009 and the reason why has been for the fact that I was focused on only that convention, as far as comic books are concerned, and tickets are as rare as elvish mithril (which is… Read more »
Morning jolt: Mad Max
I have loved Mad Max since I was 13 years old. It was around this time that I discovered Fallout 1&2 and had played them into oblivion, so when I heard that there was a movie that felt like Fallout, I was all over it. My first introduction was The Road Warrior the second film… Read more »
Morning jolt: On writing
I am about to step out for work this morning, but then I had coffee, and BOOM! My brain started working! And now I am here and I going to touch upon topics in this series of blogs, in the morning, that I am calling “Morning Jolt”. These are tiny micro blogs, or at least… Read more »
Storytelling Devices: Audio Recordings
We all love video games, I know I do, but there are times when the story telling is just bad. I am going to go over a storytelling mechanic that is overused and that’s audio logs. Many a gamer will point toward the original Bioshock as being the game that really made this mechanic as popular… Read more »
Now, before you get your tights in a bunch, this article is based 100% off of my opinions and contains facts to back up what I am saying. So suck it. You see, swords are very hard to make, even today they are difficult to actually pull off correctly. They take time to make, which brings… Read more »
Hack job: Sword fighting in film
I am not going to talk about what sword fight is the best in film, or even what is the worst one, but rather I am going to talk about the art form itself and how it has really fallen in Hollywood film. Yes, they are still thrilling, but when I stopped watching the fight,… Read more »
