HMT-DMT Sat on a Wal

A submission for the Super Punch SciFi Fairy Tales contest. I never realized that people to this day had no idea what Humpty Dumpty actually was, but in my realm of imagination he was a futuristic industrial spy in serious need of some jet fuel which is why he should have gone electric.

Star Power!

Man this week has been crazy. Christmas put new miles on my car and a few pounds in my stomach. That and I finally got my laptop back up again, I installed windows 7 on it and subsequently broke every driver and given my recent addiction to Mario on the Wii I have had little time or motivation to fix it. Meanwhile I had to kick it with some odd mediums...and then eat them. God bless the bag o' Starbursts!

I did have the chance of seeing Avatar in 3d which was cool except for the plot. That and the fact that the whole movie would have been better if it were entirely cg (a la Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, another beautiful movie with a terrible plot), the live action and cg mix was an awkward juxtaposition. Other than that it was entertaining. I still don't get how they had so many feathers and not one feathery bird nor how the arrows seemed to gain in their penetration from the time they bounced off a windshield and then ten minutes later pierced it like it was made of plastic wrap. Sherlock Holmes was amazing though if only for the fact that I expected to hate it and came away with an English accent and a need for a pipe.

Movie Review!

I really can't say I hate Twilight and Twilight: Nude Moon, but that's only because I keep falling asleep every time I see it, be it at home or in the theater. What I will review however is the crowds at the theater. Never ever ever sit on the end of a row lest you enjoy your slumber punctuated by the stampeding hooves of women as they herd themselves through the aisles in pairs of twos in search of a restroom to void their bladders the size of an Altoids can. Never ever ever ever get there on time or early for the films in theaters unless you desperately wish to stand in line and hear every Jonas Brothers song filtered through the woefully underpowered cell phone speakers forming a cacophony of tin flavored sonance akin to what hell must sound like. And finally never ever x 1,000,000 interject with polar ideology or criticism of the Twilight series at a premier of Twilight, it's much like screaming "HAN SHOT SECOND!" at a Star Wars Convention.

Bizzaro de Beardo

Another bearded superhero (or villain in this case). This one just confused me, if Bizzaro is the opposite of Superman why doesn't he have a beard? It seems the natural fit. How bizarre.

The Little Marmaid poster

An entry for the Sci Fi (or is it syfy now?) Fairy Tale Contest o'er there at Super Punch. This one is an update of Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid (along with a bit of the Disney version.) Here's my synopsis which I derived after drawing it and watching too many DVR'd Twilight Zone episodes and a Phineas and Ferb marathon.

*Queue deep raspy voice* In a world where the earth has outgrown its resources, mankind has been forced to travel to Mars to make it its new home and a teraforming team is sent to establish a new colony dedicated to making mars a habitable environment. One day the earth President's son begins a small trek to the Noachian epoch to research possible water deposits underneath the surface only to find himself gasping for consciousness when he accidentally crashed through the surface into an untapped natural water channel and begins to be unmercifully dragged by torrential currents through the tunnels.

Aegle was princess of the martian marmaids, an mythical underwater species surviving in the glacial undercurrents of mars' undiscovered submerged caverns. She was destined to live a life of obscurity under the martian soil until she saw a peculiar unconscious creature discarded by the currents into an underwater eddy. Unlike any creature she had seen she knew it was in danger and braved the currents to his place of origins, depositing him on the dry land from whence he came where his Digital Obedient Guardian brought him back to his colony to search for the one who saved him.

Indelibly changed by the incident, Aegle wishes to become a human as well. Aided by the witch queen she must now must choose to gamble with her very life in exchange for a chance to be something extraordinary.

Pt 2: The Bearded Wonder

Another drawerin I did last night for the bearded superhero theme. I always wondered how much testosterone Amazonian women had in their blood.
