Shifu

Shifu

Shifu is my favourite KFP Character because he can go from at peace to pissed in the blink of an eye.

Kung Fu Panda 3: Another nice Animation about the importance of Family, Friends and Chi. 4 out of 5 Jombies.

First of all, I wouldn’t say I’m a gamer. I do like my playstation, and I used to play a lot back when I still had a pc, but I really don’t spend all that much time playing games anymore and I usually only play one game at a time, only buying a new one after the other is finished.

The Walking Dead series by Telltale, however, is the one big exception to my no-gaming-on-the-macbook-rule, and the only reason I have a steam account.

The games themselves are pretty horrible. The graphics are quite ugly, the controls suck sooo hard, there’s minute-long cut scenes you can’t skip, there’s no way to play the original version in Germany and the translations are so bad I have trouble understanding what the hell the choices are supposed to mean…

If it was anything but TWD, I’d never even consider spending money on a game like that, but unfortunately I’m a complete zombie addict, and I just love the TWD universe so much I even play games I don’t like just to see another story unfold. If they had made the stories from the games into movies, I’d buy them in a second, but there aren’t any movies so I’ll just have to suffer through a few more chapters.

Am I imagining things or are there less and less things to do, look at or touch in each new episode? I’m not complaining, mind you, just noticing that it kind of feels even more restricted. Episode 1 of “Michonne” felt pretty short, too. Not much time to get to know the characters, the whole thing took me about 90 minutes to play through.

But even though I don’t like the game, of course I’ll play every new episode that comes out. Maybe I’m a gamer after all.

Quick pen-on-paper sketch with even quicker coloring. Everyone who has played TWD: Michonne has thought of this, right? Right? Admit it, you have!

Movie Watch

On the old page, I used to write little one (or sometimes 2) sentence summaries about movies I’ve seen recently. It’s always fun to read them some time later and try to remember what the movie was like, so I’m starting this up again. I’m not a film critic or anything, just writing down how much I liked a movie, the main thing I noticed about it, or how well entertained I felt while watching it.

I want to keep that stuff really short and maybe illustrate it with a sketch or something, but for now here’s a cartoon I drew for “my” radio station, SWR4 (it’s not actually mine, I just work there…). They have a comedy series where they sing funny lyrics to well-known songs, it’s called “Hits with a Joke”… This week’s joke was about movies, so it kind of fits. Anyway, here we go:

Schwachmat

The 5th Wave: A (hopefully) cheap production swimming on the wave of teenage dystopian fiction, I already don’t remember the characters or story. 3 out of 5 Aliens.

Hateful 8: Why do I keep watching Tarantino movies with high hopes? There hasn’t been a single one I actually liked yet. Haven’t been so bored and looked at my watch so often during a movie in a long time. 2 out of 5 Jelly Beans.

Deadpool: Keeps everything the trailers promised, how do they get so much irony across without showing their main character’s face half the time? 5 out of 5 super heroes.

Hello_Gobohi there!

i’ll be posting whatever comes to mind more or less regularly now. mostly cartoons and comics probably, but once in a while i’ll dump a video or a movie review on you if i’m in the mood.

most of the site is already operational, although content is still a bit scarce… but feel free to head over to a gobo’s life (my old webcomic) or browse through the audio/video section!

new comic stuff will be coming up soon.
