The Outrage Book Cover

January 28, 2014

I finished this one off at 4am with an eyegraine and in dire need of sleep.

the outrage Book

In case you were wondering, no, the book is not real. It is as fictional as the author. I can however reveal an excerpt from the book but don’t tell the publishers (wink, wink):

‘She was outraged.

There she stood on the threshold of the dining room in what she once belived was her home, her beautiful home, to find Michael, the Daschund making love to her grand piano.

The rage took hold and she screamed. She screamed loudly.

It was like an earthquake.’

Why do I do this stuff?

The Star Wars That I Used to Know – Gotye Parody

June 29, 2012

This deserves a whole post of its own because it hits the nail on the head and took the words right out of my mouth.
I personally love it when Georgie boy does that shoulder rolling bit at 2.46.

Enjoy!

Choir Boy

August 17, 2011

What started as a simple lip synching exercise using sounds of Arnold Schwarzenegger devolped into an intense 12hour+ animation frenzy.

It made perfect sense to turn him into the Hulk especially since Arnie didn’t get the role in the 1970’s TV show because he was apparrently too short.

This seems unfair to me because it didn’t stop Elijah Wood getting the part of Frodo for being too tall. You can do a lot with in camera magic and how short is ‘short’? Arnie is at least 6ft 2”! Ridiculous.

If he had been in it I have no doubt it would have been bigger than Star Trek.

The title came last minute mostly because i’m not a big Superman fan (let’s face it he’s just an intergalactic stepchild) and I couldn’t quite figure who Arnie (as the hulk) would be saying that to.

Joshua Wins a Prize!

January 18, 2011

I won a prize for a little competion I did at the freshers fair what seems like a year ago.

The competition was part of ECCAs Enterprise Week 2010. The question was something along the lines of ‘How would I use £10 to make more money or kickstart my career?‘ I’m not exactly sure of the specifics.

I had forgotten about the whole thing until someone forwarded me a link to my entry. One week later and I get an email saying I won 50 quid. Nice.

Top Ten Ginger Deaths in Film

January 9, 2011

Here it is folks!

The Top 10 Ginger Deaths in film:

Drum roll please…

10Watchmen

I didn’t like what I saw of the film and I like this scene even less. The explosion is not quick or violent enough and it completely cheapens the impact of Rorschach’s death. However i’m sure there are some of you that liked it, so this is for you.

Enjoy

(p.s. If you haven’t, read the comic if it’s the only one you ever read)

9Dune

I understand Kyle Machlachanahnan must’ve been under a lot of pressure when David Lynch asked him to have a duel to the death with Sting on the set of Dune. Not only was sting already an established actor due to his exceptional role in Quadrophenia but he was also highly proficient with a blade due to his time as a knife fighter. During matches he would regularly discard the blade and proceed bite his opponents, thus earning the name ‘the sting’ (later shortened) as his behaviour was often fast, unexpected and injuries stung afterward.

Anyway, Kyle Machlachanannannn fights Sting, he gets the upper hand and kills sting in the head with a knife, he then shouts so loudly he makes the ground break.

Class.

8 Ken Park

It’s a nice summer day, this Kid called Ken goes skate boarding. On his journey to the skate park he does some tricks and by the time he gets there is frustrated because his ‘skilzz’ are ‘whack’ so blows his brains out in front everyone.

This is why something called practice was invented.

7Goldeneye

Fat, balding, ginger admiral…DEATH BY SEX!

(even better because it’s in Hindi)

6 Last Action Hero

Charles Dance shoots Arnie and is about to finish him off with a knife…

But Arnie attacks him with words:

‘No sequel for you!’

Arnie then shoots Charles Dance in the eye who then explodes…twice.

5Perfume

Jean-Baptiste Grenouille likes to smell red heads. Hey, i’m not judging…whatever tickles your pickle. Thing is he goes a bit further and kills them. In this scene he follows a girl, sniffs and then strangles her.

Later on in the film he goes further still and shaves a dead chick’s head, keeping the hair and turning it into a perfume. That gets him into some touble so maybe taking the hair was a step too far.

(I couldn’t find the exact scene online, so this’ll have to do)

Next time a guy tells you he thinks you smell so good he wants to make a perfume out of you, just be careful because he might really be saying ‘I want to kill you and shave your head.’

4Goldfinger

Another James Bond one, this time Auric Goldfinger is sucked out of a plane arse first.

I’m noticing a theme with fat balding red heads in James Bond…

3Starship Troopers

Everything is going well…as well as any retreat from giant alien bugs that spray fire from their faces.

Dizzy (a hot chick with a gun) kills a bug and is pretty happy because it’s worth at least 1000xp meaning she’ll level up really soon and will be able to upgrade her dexterity because lately she’s noticed that her combat reflexes were not as good as they should be.

Anyway she’s waving to Rico who’s pretty impressed and just as she’s about to get on the ship…

BAM!

Impaled by a giant insect spider thing and stabbed like 50 times!

Everyone’s a bit sad, not that sad, but a bit upset. She tries hitting on Rico with blood coming out of her mouth and all these new holes she’s gained. Rico doesn’t find it sexy because she’s pretty much dead, and then she dies.

Yeah well that’ll teach you to put points into charisma, all the good it did you.

2 Dune (again)

This is probably the most brutal one out of the lot. Fat, puss ridden, homosexual Baron Harkonen is having his face poked at by some subserviant mad pervert ‘doctor’. Some slave kid comes in and the Baron is on it already.

He levitates up to this young ginger boy with what can only be described as a curious-and-excited look-of-a-determined-sex-face and then proceeds to bleed the boy to death.

Why?

Because he can.

1Once Upon a Time in the West

This number one for good reason.

It is perfect.

It’s the first impression you get of Henry Fonda’s character (Henry Fonda was famous for playing good guys so this was quite a change). His gang shoot up the innocent McBain family murdering three of them except the youngest, who then comes out to find his family dead.

He stands there in shock as five men in dusters approach him.They stand there looking at him. Henry Fonda sort of smiles and looks like the doesn’t really want to kill the kid, but you’re unsure if he is because of the look in his eyes. Then after the goon speaks you know he is.

Goon:’what do we do now frank?’

Fonda:’well now that you’ve called me by name…’

BAM!

Dead ginger kid.

Brilliant, Beautiful. Ruthless.

Now THAT’S sexy…

December 26, 2010

This is getting a bit ridiculous now, I know this will only be the third post but I feel like it’s just a bit too much Batman.

A voice in my head says ‘you can never have too much Batman’, but that voice also tells me that doritos can double as ninja stars if thrown correctly, white lines is the star wars of hip hop and ping pong is the national sport in Thailand. You decide.

Anyway.

I came across this whilst looking for Batman blogs for my dissertation

HOT CHICKS IN BATMAN T-SHIRTS

It’s pretty self explanatory and if I were a hot chick in a Batman T shirt I would definately contribute.

That is all.

Sidetracking…

November 22, 2010

One of the perks of doing research on Batman for my dissertation is the cool stuff I stumble upon.

taken from http://www.thisisnotporn.net/

(thisisnotporn is a cool site that has some great candid photographs of famous people).

..And the plain bizarre:

A cap and mullet are no sustitute for a cape and cowl. And why is there a spiderman midget in the mix?

Words escape me.
