Good news everyone! I'm going to be on TV!

Yes, that's right, no longer will my camera prescence be confined to seedy internet videos you look up late at night, now I shall be in an ad! At long last, I shall be....... a faceless extra in a crowd scene.

In case you have no idea what I'm on about (it's not your fault, sometimes I don't know myself), I am refering to the human animation project. No, we're not all being turned into cartoon characters (my dreams of piloting giant robots, making friends with magically powered schoolgirls and hitting people I don't like over the head with a giant mallet go unfulfilled yet again. Sigh), a whole big bunch of people (including yours truely) instead hold up placards and make funny shapes, which forms up an image. A bit like a human pyramid I suppose...

But what is this for I hear you ask. Surely if we wanted to see that we would just watch a Lady Gaga video? Yes, and they probably have bigger budgets as well, but they aren't nationalistic. You see this human sign thingimawhatsit that I'm part of is supposed to spell out a message for the world cup that's happening. A "welcome to the world", if you will. I still like my idea of a zepplin flyover though...

Remember, only two weeks to go till the next gathering folks. Till next time!

Over the hills and far away...

Behold! On the third day I rise. Or not. At any rate, as Schwarzenegger once said, I'm bahk.

Alas, my poor blog, a glowing page of broken dreams. What started as a golden vision of utopia has sadly fallen into neglect. Until now. Now it is time for season 2 of this blog, with more story arcs, more character developments, a bigger budget, gratuitous nudity...erm, ok maybe not the last one, but maybe some of the others.

When next our hallowed cabal meets it shall be the 8th of September. Be prepared in your brightest tightest spandex or most bizzare hairstyle, for the month of September is a celebration of Comics, Graphic novelia, Manga and all things illustrated and inky. Or you could just bring a plate of something*. That works too.

Alas I have, due to the hectic nature of my academic pursuits and my crippling chronic procrastination, I have been unable to browse a fine printed work. However if anyone is able to obtain or assertain the whereabouts of a copy of the strange and twisted work that is Lolita, I would be much obliged.

That be all for now, but be sure to return next time for more giggles, more action, more mystery and more ranting. And leave a comment too, I always enjoy hearing from my loyal dedicated readers, both of you.

*all plate-things must be either 51% sugar or 51% salt.
