Neil Patrick Harris Magic the Gathering Card


I’ve only watched one episode of how I met your mother so Neil Patrick Harris is still Dougie Howser/the psychic guy in Starship Troopers to me. But I’m familiar enough with the various memes that have s spread across the tubes to find this amusing.

Pokemon Magic the Gathering Cards

Lx4SliK
Lets forget for a moment that there is already a Pokemon Card game, Reddit user cameronc65 uploaded this set of Pokemon Magic the Gathering Cards that his cousin has been working on. It’s pretty cool, not particularly balanced but cool none the less.

But wait there’s more! In the comments another Redditor (teenelmo26) also shared his set of Pokemon Magic the Gathering cards. There’s three generations of the damn things!

What’s pretty cool about this set is that he’s put in the trainers too. Although I would have treated the trainers as analogous to Planeswalkers  rather than as creatures.

You can see them all (Or at least most of them I may have cocked up the WordPress Gallery while writing this post so some of them might not be there) after the break.

Camp NaNoWriMo: Should I? Shouldn’t I?

As if trying to write 50,000 words in November wasn’t enough, I’m debating participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this April.

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.

If anyone else is thinking of joining up you can sign up for free on the Camp NaNoWriMo website.

 

Forever Alone and Really Creepy Valentines Day Cards

These quite creepy Valentine’s Day cards were uploaded to Reddit by slddngwthtgrs. It’s a shame that the one about the restraining order seems to have an error in it, I quite want to know what the punch line is…

 

Tentacle Attack Bookends

Solid metal bookends depicting a woman being fondled by a scary tentacled monster which has punched through a set of books.

Your’s for the the princely sum of $42.99 from Knob Creek Metal Arts.

 

Neon Genesis Evangelion Themed DSLR

Pentax parades Evangelionflavored Q10s
EVA-1 Shinji Ikari

 

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.

Kings Landing in Minecraft

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.

 

Marvelous Nouveau

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.

The Other Princesses Nouveau

 

Artist Kishokahime has put together a set of art nouveau images of the other princesses, you know the characters that Disney doesn’t own.
