Quickies

This only really makes sense if you've played Portal. But if you have, 'tis brilliant.

Excellent article about The Wire from the The New Yorker.

Finally got round to installing the full version of Comic Life, and had the first page up and running within about ten minutes. I don't think Scott McCloud has anything to worry about just yet...

Happy holidays, James!
Santa brought us a Lego X-Wing Fighter and a Viking Double Catapult versus the Armored Ofnir Dragon, so I've got quite a lego-ish Christmas as well...

Personally I was rooting for the Ice Demon, but oh, well...

Is Father Christmas wearing a fireman's helmet?

james henry said...

Father Christmas is wearing a backwards hard hat, because SOMEONE lost his proper hat (it was me).

Taiga, the Blue Cat household also did rather well for lego, with Cafe Corner, and a skeleton coach courtesy of Peanuts.

You lost your proper hat and Father Christmas has to suffer for it? I call that harsh.

On the plus side, the last thing in the Lego Advent Calender was a christmas tree, hurrah!

Father Christmas versus the Ice Demon was, in my humble opinion, more exciting than Dr Who.

But what do I know about things?

james henry said...

Clearly lots, Dave! I never watch the RTD episodes of Who, as they only lead to me throwing things and then shouting a lot.

You had a Lego advent calender! I am so jealous.

Season's Greetings! Just need some Lego(TM) pagans now ....

Master C received Portal for Christmas,(and seems to have been playing it ever since) so he kindly explained all the references to me.

We managed to make a very convincing Santa out of Play-Mobil using the medieval clothes from the castle set some years ago, including a proper red pointed hat. There must be a lego equivalent.
