Welcome to Open Mic Mondays, and a late, but sincere and very appreciative thanks to my friend Bryce for pointing out the more…Cronenbergian connotations of this feature’s original title. This week’s column comes to us from a colleague and friend of mine. Laura is a fellow former SFX blogger and a tirelessly […]
Something a little different this week. Performance art combining projection mapping, an actor and precision robotics from the production company Bot & Dolly. Think ballet with robot arms and a little slight of hand. Only even more beautiful and no one has to wear a codpiece. Box from Bot & Dolly on Vimeo.
There’s going to be a lot of stuff written about Agents of SHIELD over the next few months. Anything which isn’t banal ratings speculation should be pretty interesting because there’s a lot to chew on in there. Not only do you get the sensibilities and plot beats of Marvel movies transferred to the small screen,
Welcome to Open Mic Mondays. Today’s guest is one of my oldest friends. Chris Brosnahan was born in Ireland, lives in London and recently won NaNoWriWee. This was a contest, designed to mirror NaNoWriMo but with one difference; the novel had to be written in a weekend. Hence the Wee. Chris’ entry, POV, not only
Morning, I’m catching up on the frankly demented amount of work I have on deck over the next couple of weeks.

Aaaaand we’re back. This last year involved tag team work with Mr Kudos about the new Star Wars comic, more interviews, more reviews and my first ever piece of toy journalism. And that’s it.

2012, or as I like to call it; the year I didn’t stop writing. There’s a lot of stuff here including interviews with the entire Monkeybrain Comics starting line up, more Blogbusters and reviews of a lot of the books I picked up at Thought Bubble the previous year.
