My name is James, I'm an artist and design graduate living in Ireland.

Presently 22 years old, among other things I love art, video/computer games, books, comics, films and TV series, a mountain of other nerdy things, collect pokemon cards and revere science above all else. My hobbies include doing art, reading, going to the gym, playing computer games and collecting pokemon cards.

Concerning myself in slightly more detail, I like many things…as, I'm told, do most people. I'm extremely fond of fiction, primarily science fiction and fantasy, with Doctor Who and The Lord of the Rings being my two favourite examples of both of those, although Steven Moffat is currently doing his best to thoroughly destroy the former. Chief among my interests is Pokemon, which is probably my most favorite thing ever, having been with it from the beginning and having a frightfully large pokemon trading card collection. Few things have brought me as much joy as Pokemon has over the years.

My other serious interests are science, in particular the areas of biology, natural history, evolution, zoology and nuclear power, which I am very,very much in favour of, especially the aim to achieve commercial fusion power since that would be a godsend for the environment. These subjects have always fascinated me more than anything else. In addition to this I have always adored art, particularly illustration and even more specifically, concept art, the likes of which is done for movies and video games, and hope one day to get a job related to this…I really, really hope.

I get constant headaches and am easily infuriated by the simplest of things, so in a sense I suppose I'm like some sort of crossbreed of Donald Duck and a Psyduck.

I started this blog as an experiment, a tentative foray into being sociable…but on the internet so I don't actually have to be sociable in person because that is very scary.

I mainly post stuff relating to Pokemon, Feminism, Science and Art, but also a ton of other random shit from time to time just because I feel like it, and by 'from time to time' I of course mean, 'very often'.

Now for the super mature and important details:

My favourite pokemon are Donphan, Nidorino, Nidoking, Steelix, Psyduck and Cloyster

My favourite super-heroes are (in this order): Superman and Spider-Man (tied in first place), Captain Marvel (the 'Shazam!' one), Captain America and Wonder Woman

My favourite super-villains are Carnage, Venom, Magneto and Doctor Octopus

My favorite non-super hero/super-villain characters are: Dr. Cortex, Crash Bandicoot, Dingodile, Dr. Eggman, Godzilla, Kroenen, Darth Vader, DCI Gene Hunt, Goku, The Daleks, Zim, Dr. Nefarious and Captain Quark

My favourite TV series are Doctor Who, Futurama, Pokemon, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Adventure Time, Elementary, Invader Zim, Blackadder, Breaking Bad, Life on Mars (the proper one not the American one), House and Ultimate Spider-Man

My favourite films are Godzilla (2014), Spirited Away, Star Wars Episodes I - VI, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Kung-Fu-Panda movies, The Croods, Monsters University, Man of Steel and Captain America: The First Avenger (there are many more but those are the main ones)

My favorite books are The Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games trilogy and the Harry Potter series, as well as tons of science books

My favourite toy is Lego

My Favourite computer games are the Pokemon gameboy/colour/advance/DS and 3DS RPGs, Lego Racers (the original one not the second one), Minecraft, The Ratchet and Clank series, Fallout 3, The Bioshock series, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and V: Skyrim, several of the Sonic the Hedgehog games, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy and (most of) the Crash Bandicoot series, specifically, the first three games (especially 2), Crash Bash and Crash Twinsanity. Don't even talk to me about the horrendous new ones…

And that's about it! :D

Beauty and the Beast:  A Modern Day Fairy Tale.

(Well, modern early 2000)

I made this with my good friend, writer Greg Lockard, back in 2004 for the online daily comic, Young Bottoms In Love. I think it was the first story I created after graduating from college in 2003, so you’ll have to excuse the rough line work and the dated Queer Eye for the Straight Guy reference. I still think it’s a cute though, enjoy!

I’ve seen a few people doing these and with all the Pokemon cards I’ve got laying around I just had to try it…plus I wanted an excuse to bust out the acrylics. I think I’m addicted.

If anyone wants to buy them they’re up for grabs on my brand new Etsy shop!

Man Arrested for Gunning Down Cop Who Climbed in Through His Window | Breaking Brown
A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USA reports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

  • Favorite thing about this scene: the Doctor acknowledging his part in sending a companion mixed signals instead of blaming their response to his signals on irrational human-ness (and femaleness). Now go back and say this to Martha, Doctor, preferably with an actual “I’m sorry.”
  • Least favorite thing about this scene: fandom missing the point and continuing to insist that Clara’s a horrible shallow person who just wanted Eleven to be her boyfriend and dislikes Twelve because of that

Overture to a post.
