What is Camp NaNoWriMo? Apparently it’s a bit like NaNoWriMo Lite, you set a word count goal for the month (I’ve provisionally set mine to 10k) and you get assigned a number of “Cabin Mates” who are your partners in crime for this literary adventure.
At the moment I don’t know very much about what I’m going to actually write, my one goal is to somehow incorporate tea into the story, aside from that everything is a little up in the air.
The seed I have in my head has a main character whose life has stagnated several years after finishing University, one by one all their friends have moved off to other cities for work, or on crazy adventures. It’s reached the point where they have one friend left in the city, and that friend announces that they are moving away too, leaving them alone in the city.
On a whim they decide that they are going to go on their own adventure, I’m not entirely sure where to at the moment, and I’m not entirely sure I’m going to go with this idea.
I’ve got till the end of the month to flesh this out or to come up with another idea, assuming I actually go through with this at all.
It’s not often I get talk about both anime and photography, Pentax are releasing an Evangelion themed Q10 DSLR in April, sadly it’s Japan only and they are only making 1,500 of each model so the chances of getting your grubby mitts on one is fairly low. But you can dream.
It’s going to clock in at 59,800 Yen ($660 or a little over £400) for that that you get a 12.4 megapixel, mirrorless interchangable lens camera which can also shoot video in fill HD.
It’s apparently not just going to come in the above EVA-1 colour palette but will be available in the other EVA models as well.
This is Kings Landing the seat of power of Westeros from George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones created in Minecraft posted by Redditor pizzainacup. It took about 100 people a little over 4 months to create this, there are apparently 3000 unique buildings all with interiors. It can be accessed on www.westeroscraft.com.
It looks like they are planning on creating the entirety of Westeros and Essos, and are waiting on Minecraft’s Mod API so that they can release this as an open world RPG with quests and NPCs.
It’s nice to see some comic book related art featuring female characters that isn’t just tits and ass these Art Nouveau images by *HanieMohd are great above Ms Marvel and later her more recent incarnation as Captain Marvel as well as many others.
I read the first couple of issues of the new Captain Marvel and I quite enjoyed it, it’s good to see Marvel making a concerted effort to have strong female characters, and giving her a non gender specific name, with a military title no less.
A little bit of trivia for you, both DC and Marvel have a character called Captain Marvel.
How did I not know that Lego were releasing a slew of TMNT playsets! These looks awesome! And there are loads of them! The re-emergence of 90’s kids TV shows sexed up for modern kids is a good thing in my opinion, and apparently the new Nickelodeon TMNT series is actually quite good.
What do you do when you oreder fabric to make a Marie Antoinette dress but you get the wrong colour? Particularly if that colour happens to be TARDIS blue? I don’t follow the cosplay scene but apparently Kelldar is a big name in it. She’s made a lovely TARDIS/Marie Antoinette crossover dress, you can even see inside the TARDIS!
Here it is again with a guy in a TARDIS suit photo bombing her:
