The End of Days is Actually Rather Funny: This is the End

Now there appears to be a new trend in theatres this year, the end of the world. Of course there's all your usual fare like the world coming to the end via aliens and zombies, disasters, all the stuff that gets done all the time. But this year there is a bit of a twist, apocalyptic comedy. Off the top of my head I can think of The World's End, Rapturepalooza and This is the End (which I will be reviewing once you click read on). It was inevitable of course that humanity's destruction would leave the realm of horror-comedies (Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, Cabin in the Woods) and turn to comedies with just a dash of horror.

Wonderful World of Online Media Update

Well two pretty awesome pieces of news to update the world with:

Firstly I have become a contributor for The Geek Supremacy Project, doing a weekly news podcast and posting the occasional article on their site. If you want to check out the news show you can go here, or if you would prefer to read my first article about the Avengers Assemble cartoon you can go here. Now don't worry I'm not going to neglect Hansen's Horror Hub, I just now have an outlet for my less gory passions. I will also make sure to post links every time I have a new article there.

The second big piece of news is I AM NOW ON IMDB! The things you learn when you search your name on different websites.

That is all.

I'm Just a Hunka Hunka Burning Alien

Something many of you may not know about me is that recently I have been doing some volunteer SFX make-up modelling at a school called Blanche Macdonald. Well I finally got the pictures back from my first session. I had an awesome time and am so excited to show the results to you.

You're going to have to read more to see the rest.

Soska Night, an Evening Filled with Baseball Bats and Amputated Arms

Later on the fought it out to see what was better, Marvel or DC.

Every once in a while a friend posts a photo on facebook of themselves with a dvd of a movie you want to see. Even rarer is when this coincides with the theatrical release of a film from the same directors. Well this is what happened recently and gave birth to what was dubbed Soska Night. It was a wonderful evening that started out with a Dead Hooker in a Trunk and ended with American Mary at the wonderful Rio Theatre. We laughed, we were confused, we were shocked, but most of all we had fun. Read more about the adventure (mostly about American Mary) after the break.
