Japanese Doctor Who

August 14, 2014

I love the internet, one minute you can be looking for something the next you’re seeing something else you never would have expected to simply because that’s where the adventure has led you.

That’s exactly what happend about four years ago, little did I know where it would eventually lead me or what it would lead me to.

There’s a whole subculture of remixes, parodies and homages to horrible (and good) film rip offs and that’s ultimately where this video will end up, in that wonderfully bizarre corner of the internet. For the moment and as of writing this post it has enjoyed (as have I) 15 seconds of internet viral stardom.

I was going to write a nice little post going into more detail but Wired and Henshin Justice have already done such a wonderful job it’s just easier to link you to them instead.

Fictional Albums: Lipsticker

October 23, 2012

Every once in a while I am divinely inspired and I will channel that energy the only way I know how: Making fictional album covers.

I’m not sure why, although I guess it started with ‘Lipsticker’ a fictional band famous for the song ‘Mushroom Soup’ my mate Jon created when he was a kid.

“Lipsticker…just happened…

I actually think they may have originally been called Slapsticker but changed over time. I performed Mushroom Soup completely randomly in my back garden it was just me talking gibberish…with my mind thinking i was a hairy metaller type guy in a cape (a sort of Dani Filth type thing) singing about being gay with the drummer. I think that was my imagination going to extreme”

I made up some art using a couple of old photos then Jon, my brother and I came up with the rest of the track listings and band members collectively. We even recorded it! And I did a music video for it, which if you’re dying to see can be seen here, password protected for your own good. PW: creamy

Fresh from 2005!

Wow.

I came across a collection of pencil tests for Akira and just find them incredible to watch…

When you see it in such a stripped down form it makes you appreciate how amazing it really is.

If only I could understand Japanese…

Japanese Spiderman

March 8, 2010

Ok, so silly videos are a guilty pleasure of mine.

Here’s one I found a short while back and have been itching to share.

I love the little disco bada-bum bada-bum things they have in the catchy opening music that’s half the fun right there.

The other half is the great story behind why this was made and why spiderman has his own robot (as if he’d need one – pah!).

Marvel made a deal with Toei that meant for 4 years they could do whatever the sam hell they wanted to with him. Bloody genius is what it is. There need to be more giant robots on tv, it’s something that I find programmes distinctly lack these days. We live in dark times indeed.
