Not updated this for ages again. I really need to sort out some Japan pictures and put them on here with angry rants. I also need to go on about the yanks are going to murder Julian Assange, and how many innocent bystanders they will kill doing it. Anyway, some general updates:
– There’s two sets of major roadworks in Cambridge at the moment, so I am currently getting up at 5 past 5 in the morning and going in roughly 50 minutes earlier than usual. I get there about an hour earlier than usual, then sit about reading, before going off to the computer room at my normal arrival time and doing some story writing (or more likely staring at facebook and forums pointlessley). Why yes, that is an insane time to get up. Why yes, I ought to have gone to bed an hour and a half ago. But I’m going to finish these posts at least, because I wasted all evening finishing reading a book and have done no real work on my comics for a month.
– I intended to do 6 issues of the Red, White & Blue and 3 of The Trident this year. It’s looking more like I’ll do 3 of the RWB and none of The Trident. Issue 2 of the RWB is still not finished, it was supposed to be cover dated March-April. And that’s with most of the artwork already done, remember. I hope to really “put my foot down” and get the RWB up to quarterly next year! Then once I’ve done issue 5 I’ll drop the page count and get an A3 scanner, which will hopefully allow for just as ‘much’ comic, but on fewer pages and so drawn more quickly. The Trident may as well be regarded as cancelled, which is a shame as the first story was the origin of one of my major characters. Oh well, Judge Dredd ran for 30 years before we saw his proper origin. Maybe I’ll serialise it in the distant future.
– I’m getting back into Airfix, as I said before. I’ve started the Spitfire starter kit, but am working very slowly. It is, at last, plane shaped! But I need to get various accessories used by serious modellers (not that I am one) before I continue. One of which is a floor polish called Klear, which modellers of all stripes (Airfix, Warhammer, Gundam etc) appear to swear by for ‘fixing’ paint and improving transparent parts.
I was planning to build it with “nothing but what’s in the box”, but refused to have black exhausts, a grey-faced pilot and no bright propellor ends.
– Samsung Kies is FUCKING CUNTING SHITWIPE. I take photos of amusing stuff I see around with my phone, but my phone is ‘special’, so you can’t just connect it to the computer and transfer pictures over. Unlike my Nokia from two-thousand-and-fucking-eight. Because Samsung Kies just plain doesn’t work at all, transferring pictures is an involved process, which probably explains why this blog isn’t being updated with random snaps of everything cool I buy. BUT I’ll have to get a new PC soon as this one is about dead. First item on the agenda: A built-in card reader! Currently I have to use my crappy cheap “netbook” to transfer pictures to a USB stick, then use that to put the pictures on my “non-netbook”, which unlike my “netbook” is actually able to connect to the internet.
