Why you don't provide nazis a platform and then try to cover your own ass.

Crowder is not only a poor debater, he's also a complete racist tosser.

I saw King of the Monsters again.

Yeah, I still like it a lot.

I haven't read the Titan ones, but I am aware that one of the ten spines has the poppy missing from it, which should surely be reason enough to swap them for the Rebellion versions.

Oh man! That damn missing poppy did my head in!
I believe I own said copy thanks to you Jimbo! And it does my wick in too!

I'm skipping the new editions, for now, too many other comics deserve my money but it's certainly on the cards for an upgrade further down the line.

With Fopp making it's glorious return to Manchester's high street I indulged in the Arrow Video sale, came away with some right gems.

Future Shock: The Story of 2000AD requires no introduction, happy to upgrade from the DVD to an extras laden pack and an absolutely wonderful package. The documentary is as great as ever, and the Mills finale still elicits more laughter than is probably healthy. FUCK OFF.

Got back into my western binge with Texas, Adios! starring the genres most under rated actor, the brilliant Franco Nero. It's a fine yarn, no Django (made the same year) but still an excellent example of the early spaghetti western cycle.

Do you want a bizarre alien invasion movie that feels like it belongs in the prog? Watch The Visitor. Words fail me. I'm not sure i'd call it good, but it's got the same aura to it as Zardoz. Off the cuff, cheap, utterly barmy science fiction at it's most esoteric.

Theres no official TF M:UK Deaths Head figure (green, as he should be) but theres a few smaller scale blue versions that fit in nicely, I have the Marvel Infinite figure of him and it's squares up alright.

There's also this amazing 3rd part retool of a Cyclonus figures which looks absolutely brilliant!

I've spent way too much on transformers recently.

And to think I gave mine away as a kid because they were 'for kids'. :lol:

Second childhood in old age... come early, maybe .

It happened again. I nabbed the entire War For Cybertron Siege Wave 3 line, including the rather lovely Springer, Thundercracker and Red Alert. 'Sigh'

Oh hey i've actually found myself with a few moments to not only read my comics but talk about them? Must be that once every 3 month blue moon.

Anyway, Giant Days vol. 10 is wonderful, we all know that, people should be reading this it's one of the best comics right now that's not getting nearly enough recognition. Assassin Nation #4 is fine dandy and a lot of fun. Will look forward to rereading once this mini is over.

The Weekly Shonen Jump selection is fantastic as ever. My Hero Academia continues to be the most original super hero comic in the world, DR. Stone is brilliant fun and really inventive, The Promised Neverland subverted all expectations and Black Clover is still wonderfully daft. and self aware. It's a shame not many of the newish titles have stuck with me, but if anyone wants a bit of feudal Japanese supernatural horror, read Kimetsu No Yaiba. Thats some good ass comics.

Book of the week however goes to Stan Sakai and Usagi Yojimbo #1. A very bold and controversial choice to restart the numbering after many, MANY years at Dark Horse the new leaf turned at IDW opens with a strong and dependably wonderful start. Very happy to have Usagi back.

Thanks guys, it’s a rough time right now and I don’t feel completely in control. I’ve been musing if there’s a connection between the systematic programming of ‘Higher Education = Happiness’ in schools under the Blairites in schools during the early 2000’s is linked to the chronic anxiety, depression, general dependency on having to constantly have a clear direction or else your a failure mindset.

It’s like i’ve never known a time where I wasn’t working towards some kind of qualification and for all the good I believe it will bring me in future, in the short term ‘cramming’ culture has only brought me misery.

Mental health has been very squiffy these last few weeks. A lot of late (early?) finishes at work throwing my sleep pattern out of the window, a few too many close calls and extensions to assignments at Uni having me believing i’m not good enough, sudden and inexplicable bouts of crying and anxiety, an unhealthy obsession with the fact i’m fast approaching another year of what feels like no progress, age, comparing myself to other people I barely know, and a profound sense of melancholy.

The worst of the black dogs hasn’t returned but it’s been on the mind, with nearly 2 years cut free i’m not eager to break a record.

Does this mean that knowledge can only come from pure sources? And who decides what is a pure source and which are impure?

Preferably one that doesn't push Anti-Trans Right Rhetoric.

Sweet feckin Jesus, would ye ever just turn off your computers and go outside?

"I only said I dun gone outside so they wouldn't give me another jalfrezi enema!"



I really miss Monkey Dust the world could really do with the program right now!
Sadly due to Harry Thompsons death due to lung cancer (he wasn't even a smoker apparently, utterly tragic) it seems the most under rated animated comedy will remain in it's cult statues.

Also I suspect theres zero chance of seasons 2 and 3 getting a dvd release after 15 years.

Just got out of Dark Phoenix. Thought it was dire to be frank, haven't cared about the X-Pats movies in years (Logan was quiet the surprise) and it's evident why. They've long lost their mojo.

I freaking loved King of the Monsters for the big budget Heisei bug nuts insane action pomp it was and I have zero guilt in admitting this kaiju fan was well and truly satisfied.

Man Met in their infinite, lucid wisdom concocted a scheme a few years back to fit old concrete industrial pipes with amenities, running water, electric, insulation, etc. to support the housing crisis. Each 6ft by 24 ft "housing" would cost £20,000.

In 1994 my parents got a two bedroom terrace for less than that price.
