My Michael Jackson Tribute

mj

This was the trio’s favourite game when we were young. Dennis got scammed and paid $80 for this at a certain shop in Parkway Parade that exists to this day.

Nevertheless, we played it to death, and I loved it. Catch a shooting star and turn into a robot. Hold A and you could throw the hat. If you held on long enough, he’d go into the dance, causing all the enemies to break out together in dance with him. And they would die. Sounds morbid enough reading it like this, but heck, it was fun as hell.

‘Smooth Criminal’ remains a firm favourite of mine because of this game.

Vintage Goodness: Olympus 4/3 Camera

olympus01

I have to admit – the sleek boxy design and vintage throwbacks of the announced Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera is delicious.

As in DPreview:

The Micro Four Thirds System enables users to enjoy the same high image quality of the Four Thirds System’s 4/3-type image sensor in a much more compact body, and also take advantage of significantly more compact lenses, particularly in the wide-angle and high-power zoom range. The Four Thirds System offers the benefits of compact, lightweight performance, and the new Micro Four Thirds System takes this still further to enable development of ultra-compact interchangeable lens type digital camera systems unlike anything seen before. The new Micro Four Thirds System also incorporates a greater number of lens-mount electrical contacts for the support of new features and expanded system functionality in the future.

Fables #77: Fafhrd & The Grey Mouser

fables77-01

Catching up on my Fables reading, when I came across the lawyer-friendly appearance of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser. I have to admit geeking out when I discovered it.

If you haven’t been reading Bill Willingham’s Fables and gawking at James Jean’s cover art, start already. Even if you aren’t a fan of comic books. Yes, it’s that good.

Inhae’s Milk Toof

inhae1

My Milk Toof is a photo comic by Inhae Renee Lee that is really too cute for words: “When I was young, I placed my baby teeth under my pillow and when i woke up I’d find a shiny new quarter. But whatever happened to those little teeth? Where did they go? Would I ever see them again?

Many years later, a little tooth was standing at my door. It looked familiar. It’s name was ickle. Welcome home, my milk toof!”

You Might Die Eating This, Albeit Happily

Reese Pieces’ encrusted chocolate ganache cake, oozing chocolate and peanut butter in every pore and fibre of its little round calorie-ridden being.

You might actually reach heaven before expiring from all the amount of sugar contained in this baby.

The Joker Collection

The_Joker_by_enikOneby enikone, via nic

This is probably my favourite out of all in the Totally Awesome Joker Collection. Reminiscent of Tim Bradstreet’s work on John Constantine.

Heath Ledger and Nolan have created one of the most seminal portrayals of a supervillain in cinema, and one wonders when we might see the likes of Ledger’s performance once again.
