Heppy Heppy

Hey crazy kids, its that time of year again time of year runs out. Where cult sects prepare for Apocalypse number 2005673, ill fated resolutions like quiting smoking, only sex with woman and learning to water paint are being thought up.

I'm trying ever so hard to come up with a round up my thoughts about the previous year but to prevent an/a "United States of Tara" thing happening to me, I'll pass. What I can say is: heres to a night where 70% of the globe will be boozy freaky trashed in a wave of alcoholic (among others for some) unison and hangovers uniting everyone from all walks of the globe at the toilet bowl.

I recently contributed to helping build a centre for the rehabilitation of child soldiers in Gulu, Uganda. How you ask? well that's when Faith comes in ... no not the spiritual hallelujah Mr Bean-picking-up-a-mint kind, The Buffy character kind. For her 30th Bday actor Eliza Dushku set up a fundraiser with a goal: for the rehabilitation of child soldiers in Gulu, Uganda. I know what I added is just a tiny pebble in the sea but what was that said about throwing a pebble in a pond?? Anyway if you are interested you can find everything over here

okay peeps I'll leave you with a mixtape made especially for tomorrows big partay or chilled evening at home vibes by Tesla Boy. Have a safe one!!!

5 RONIN Cover Art

Stunning Cover art by illustrator David Aja for the upcoming 5 RONIN comic series featuring The Hulk, Wolverine, Deadpool, Psylocke(yay!) and The Punisher

"From the very beginning, I wanted to keep each cover down to two colors that identify with each of the five characters” explains artist, David Aja. “We set out to come up with a design that would grab your eyes from the shelves compared to the rest of the covers while keeping uniformity throughout the series and I think we accomplished that here."

What gives you confidence?

I rarely ever am at 100% confidence level, but when I do get the 1UP it would normally be from seeing great work and knowing that I must just get passed the shit that is my inhibition and create, things might not come out as exactly as originally planned but that can lead to some interesting results. I guess that could pour over into other aspects of my life too.

The thoughts that the actors and directors give in this video (filmed at the Toronto Film Festival) are not just limited to their industry I find myself nodding every once in while to what they are saying.

I think this Christmas I would ask for more more confidence, for me it's more practical than a new phone with fart apps.

Mary ate Christmas.

I am a mutant living in a Utopia off the San Fransisco shore
a blonde slayer with one hell of a mouth
a green flippered entertainer pulling the strings
a guy with a family
a kid in a very dangerous boarding school
a record store employee in the early 90's
I am a walrus goo goo gachoo..

These were the kinds of thoughts that were exploding around my brain whilst in the trench's of WWFLU, okay not so much thoughts as bi products of tv shows, comics and music I was running through during my service of sneeze but as anyone knows your brain is not so much brain as it is brange when in the bouts of a SeveralNight Fever (stayin alive, stayin alive). Of course coming out of my first international sicky, I have no purple heart or hero's welcome to look forward to, I have the distinct pleasure of continuing my quest for the ultimate, if any, employment (freelance can only go so far). I guess the funny thing is receiving rejection emails while you're puking your guts out holding a hanky of snoz in one hand and migraine pills in the other..just adds that missing salty dipped cherry, don't you think?

But I digress, that festive thing is upon us once more, you know? Where everything from banks, George Foreman grills and tampons tell you to be grateful for having to spend ridiculous amounts of cash to show just how much affection you have for your loved ones, funny how they tell you after you got the damn gift that "oh you should'nt have" but by then, the second bottle of red has had you reached the star on top of the plastic tree, so whatefs. Good Lord am I going all Grinchy over here?? Not my intention.....

I can say I'm stoked at having my very first actual white Christmas in UK, my sis is having hers in New York, so its an international Neophytou Christmas this year Skypes all round!!

So all ya'll be safe and have a good festive thing no matter how you celebrate it.
(Im thinking virgin alter sacrifices is not a good one)

leaving you with some cool Christmas songs to get yoo in the mood, its a mixed bag but what would a post by me be if not mixed and bagged?
