Songs I like CCIII: Tenement Song

Not their finest, but pretty good regardless.

Todd McVenom

toddmcvenomMr McFarlane returns to Marvel with the 1:1000000000 cover to Venom #1.
It’s a little uninspiring.

It appears Marvel have dug out an old Todd McFarlane Venom image, slapped some new colour on it and boom: free money.

Rather than paying through the nose for this variant, why not print the image out and glue it on to your standard Venom issue 1?

DKIII again?

dkiiisomethingAs well not publishing whatever issue they are currently on, they have now added an issue 9 to the 8 issue series, so have even more comics to not publish.

Good work DC.

The Monster Squid

themonstersquidI’m a big fan of 80’s movies, and horror movies, and I hadn’t seen Monster Squad since back in the day, I was expecting to enjoy this more than I did.

People still seem to love it and its self awareness; but it didn’t do much for me.
It would have been better if it had been The Monster Squid.

Giant Squid < Colossal Squid < Monster Squid

Christopher David White

handy1Regardless of the artistic merit of the things (not sure about the cloud background there), his clay sculptures are impressive.

Tourettes Trophy: The Real Riding Simulator

It does seem much easier to fall off a motorbike than a car, leading to more swearing whist playing Tourist Trophy over Gran Turismo.
The upside of this is that the feeling of swinging a bike round bends is slightly more satisfying than doing so in a car.

For a PS2 game (based on Gran Turismo 4), it still looks quite nice although the engine sounds do seem to grate a bit. Polyphony could do worse than release a new version, or even add motorbikes to a GT release.

I do like the original Gran Turismo tracks as some of the “real world” ones can be a little dull. Bridges are always nice to race over. Ah, Deep Forest: you so entertaining.

Jupiter’s Circlip Vol2

jupiters-circle-vol2-issue-2In response to my reluctant enjoyment of MPH, Mark Millar has balanced the equation with Jupiter’s Circle Volume 2.
I thought Volume 1 was a bit lightweight, but decent enough. This volume however, felt rushed and fairly unprofessional.

The changes in artists, the role of the artists (although Chris Sprouse’s chin squares made it through to the end of whatever convoluted process his art followed) and the story all contributed.

I wasn’t blown away by Sienkiewicz’s covers, and even Frank Quitely’s contributions were a bit convention sketchy. Probably still took him ages, and to be fair, he was likely hard at work on Jupiter’s Legacy  and needed a little extra income.

I also can’t figure out why I continue to read the editorial pages, they give me the heebee jeebees.

Doctor Cumberbatch

doctor_cumberbatchI hope this ends up better than I currently expect.
It should be good.
I liked the 1978 version when I first saw it, and I’m positive it will be better than that. Yes.

New poster there.
Why aren’t people falling out of the upside down cities?

Eye of Agamotto or some such I expect…

He of the high hat

HighHatsJon Polito has died at 65.
I’ll need to dig Miller’s Crossing out for a watch.

Albert Finney is still going though.

No Man’s Sky

TerrorNigmaAs fulfilling as flying down to planets to mine stuff to sell, to buy stuff and craft stuff is; when they eventually patch an actual game into it, might I suggest some Terra Nova-esque additions?

Is this “No Man’s Sky” like “No Man’s Land” in that no one goes there and there is very little to do?

Regardless, I’m still enjoying it.

Still have Riddler Trophies to get.
Possibly.

Trophies aren’t worth the hassle.
