Calvin & Hobbes (1985-1986 Reissue 011)

[Calvin &  Hobbes is one of the best comic strips to have come into existence in the latter part of the 20th century. This strip, created by the awesome Bill Watterson, ran for a decade, from November 18, 1985 to December 31, 1995. As a kid I discovered the first ever collection of strips in book form self titled Calvin & Hobbes in a local bookstore. As I glanced through the first few pages I became instantly hooked. It centers on a 6 year old boy Calvin, and his stuffed toy aka best friend come to imaginary life Hobbes, and their adventures about life. It’s a truly remarkable series that I’d like to share with you boys and girls. As that sharing goes, I’ll do my best to pepper in a strip as time goes on. Enjoy!]

The Last Days Of FOXHOUND (reissue 020 – Wolf Talk)

[The Last Days of FOXHOUND is a fan made comic that I stumbled upon a few years ago while perusing the Internetz as an MGS fan. This strip, created by a fellow MGS fan named Chris Douchette, ran this comic from 2003-2008. I was lucky enough to run into all 500 completed pages and wanted to share them with all of you readers. I’ll try to reiterate each and every consecutive page as time goes on. Most of the humor stems from the going on throughout the MGS series, so those who aren’t too familiar may find themselves slightly lost. My solution: play the MGS games. You guys wouldn’t be here anyways if you haven’t at least played MGS1. Anywho, enjoy!]

Kojima Station – Episode 05 with Robin Atkin Downes

Kojima Station – Episode 05 with Robin Atkin Downes

This latest episode has Kazuhira Miller voice actor himself, Robin Atkin Downes. The intro is pretty funny, actually had me cracking up hard for a few moments! It’s always interesting for me to see the actual actors themselves outside of the characters they play, then to Hear them speak in the character’s voice is a bit disarming, and highly entertaining at the same time. For the Japanese episode (episode 6) with Kojima and Shinkawa, Watch here. Anyways, enjoy.

This is an oldy, but quite the goody. I found this bug or beetle sitting lifeless on our floor leading out to the deck. Thought before I discarded it, I should take few photos.

MGSV Exclusive Content NOT So Exclusive Anymore

According to the Japanese version of KOJIMA STATION Episode 6, the exclusive content for the Playstation (DEJA VU Mission) and Xbox (JAMAIS VU Mission) will be brought to all platforms across the board. Previously, these exclusive missions were unlocked after collecting all the XOF patches around Camp Omega. Now, Kojima explains that the DLC will be available to all as a FREE download. Good news for fans who either only own one console, or own both Playstation and Xbox platforms but only have one copy of Ground Zeroes, like me. I was planning to purchase the 360 iteration of GZ, but it looks like I can breathe a sigh of relief! Also worth noting is that, based on that poster Kojima is holding up, the DLC will be available by May 1st.

If you speak/understand Japanese, or just enjoy Kojima talk without knowing a lick of Japanese at all, check out the episode below.

It’s been a while since I did one of these. I have been slacking a lot on so many things, this blog included. Just too much ‘life’ stuff going on, but hopefully it will get settled soon enough.
But anyway, I give you this photo I took the other day with my HTC One M8, taken during my lunch hour. I tell you I am loving this phone so much. It’s so nice seeing beautiful colours again.
