Hungry for Animation

I am sure we are all hungry for animation in the figurative sense (i simply believe that the household life-cycle is 1st childhood, 2nd childhood etc) i’m on my 3rd childhood now; and am hungry for animation in both the literal and figurative sense. Check out these handmade pancakes, testament to some cool animated characters:

1. Pikachu

I think its great to have a community of support in this regard. I have Maya installed on my computer and i tried to use a walk-through YouTube tutorial to help me develop a character – what a flop… I really needed help in terms of instant two way feedback which i never got from the random YouTube video i found. Websites like Slice of Games give this needed guidance and advice on a granular level of gaming development. Follow the link below to hone your development skills through their website:

Marvel Contest of Champions

Marvel Champions is a free game in the app store. I recommend you download it ASAP:

Thor vs Hulk

Thor vs Hulk

You basically collect your heroes/villains and use them to fight battles against other users logged in on the server, or you can follow the story-line game-play mode too:

My Wolverine totally got his butt kicked by this guy (i blame it on the fact that i was taking screenshots):

Which character would be your team leader? I was happy to have Wolverine; maybe Venom would be cool too 8-)

Merchandise Monday #28

Life size Yoda prop replica! Need i say more? My brother is really getting greedy these days with his collector habits:

Life Size Yoda

Life Size Yoda

He was teasing me the other evening asking me why i haven’t bought a life size replica of my favorite character. I told him that Sauron is 2.78m tall and would naturally be busting through the ceiling:

This life size Yoda replica is a limited edition run; so best start googling for one ASAP if you have intentions to buy him:

Here is me standing directly in front of Yoda to show scale (ignore my poor superimposing). So who wore Yoda better; me or Luke?

Notifications of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D series has inspired my fellow fandom blogger – Darshan Gajara – to create memes in celebration of each character:

If you are not a fan of the series then these ‘notification allegories’ may go over your head. Never the less; share them with friends of yours who follow the series; they’ll be sure to appreciate the humor here :)

Our Oceans resemble Outer Space

Julie Gautier has directed a video called ‘Ocean Gravity’ which showcases her husband – and free diver – Guillaume Nery riding a rip current in French Polynesia’s famed Tiputa Pass:

Nery does not make use of any oxygen or diving equipment in the video. The rip current shows him being dragged over what seems to be a cold, lifeless, rocky planet. It is very dark and eerie, which is intentional.

2. Polution

3. Poverty

Not that i enjoy the negative messages aligning to our current state of affairs (the truth hurts), but i do think Hong did an excellent job in hitting home the emotional messages in these pictures.

Zelda Netflix Series

So a few weeks ago the news broke about Netflix wanting to work with Nintendo to bring one of the greatest gaming series to life on TV: The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda

At this early stage not too much is known about the direction of the story line, but maybe as a fan base if we start to throw our two cents in early on; they may listen to our direction of choice…

So here is the question:

Would you guys prefer them to stay sincere to the original gaming characters and keep the authentic story line, or would you prefer some spice and innovation in the TV series with the introduction of new characters and new plot dynamics?

Let the fans be heard! 8-)
