(no subject)

Y'know, you yanks might have a functional retard with all the class and finesse of a monkey masturbating with a pile of shit in his hand running the country but by God you guys can churn out some excellent TV. I've just discovered Penn and Teller's Bullshit! and it has had the curious effect of restoring a lot of my faith in humanity, particularly the episode about spiritual mediums and Mark Edwards in particular.

It does the soul good to see folks (and I accept that P&T aren't 100% right all the time neither) ripping into some of the nonsense myths polluting the global consciousness.

Now I have another five episodes of that, thirty two episodes of Battlestar Galactica and thirteen episodes of Paranoia Agent (an anime that was reccomended to me by a bloke I would *NEVER* have thought was into anime)and Ultraviolet (the Milla Jovovich gunporn flick) to watch.

Experiments with the 3D comic thing continue apace with a disturbing lack of frustrating obstacles. The latest one is that I seem to be able to achieve the same results and even more refined renders by creating my own flat coloured renders and patterning them with other flat colours which allow me, for example, to recreate Spider Jerusalem's Tattoos (purely in theory, all I've done so far is plaster a massive smiley face on the character's forehead). So, much the same general "feel" as before but allowing me to add characterisations like moles, scars or tattoos.
