Applied Rocketry


Oh my gosh.

Rocket Raccoon.

Geek heaven. Of course, the image is annoyingly similar to a new version of my New Avengers picture that I've been working on, so now everyone will think I've copied it, but I can't be too angry. It's Rocket Raccoon!

And just like that, all my spare time disappears.

Twilight Princess is fantastic. Have a look at this sequence, which almost made me wet myself with geeky delight:

The Battle for Middle Earth

Just before Christmas, Channel 4 ran through the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, and while watching the third film, something about the scene where Aragorn and his army march to the gates of Mordor struck me as very familiar. There was something about the way it was shot that reminded me of something I'd seen before.

Lacking both the skills and software to properly illustrate what I saw, I mentioned it to James, who has plenty of both. And he produced this, which is absolutely spot on:

So spot on, in fact, that it's almost as if Peter Jackson filmed the scene in this way deliberately.

Thanks James!

I've been spending a lot of time recently tinkering with HTML, Javascript and other bits and pieces. It's been surprisingly fun, even if I don't have a lot to show for it so far. I have hit a bit of a bump though, so if anyone knows about php site navigation, please let me know.

Oh, Globbits...

I never knew this existed. A full length music video version of the opening theme to The Trap Door!

Did this actually get released as a single? If it did, that's pretty close to the best thing ever.
