ANGRY BIRD!

I've been fairly busy with work since I got back from holiday, but one interesting thing I've noticed from my Twitter Feed which is quietly chirping away in the background on my laptop, is that a lot of the people who were apoplectic a few days ago at the news of the upcoming release of a new Royal Baby, are now chomping at the bit at the prospect of new iPhone.

I made a quick comic about it. I was slightly pushed for time because of my other work, so might revisit it at a later stage, but think it gets the main point across...

Zombeavers

On Thursday night, my friend Mel invited me along to a screening of Zombeavers as part of Film4's FrightFest 2014.

And even though I left the cinema wondering what I just watched, I enjoyed it. It's big dumb fun, and sometimes that's enough!

Look What I Drawed...when I was four and a half years old!

My mum was having a sort out recently when she found a bunch of drawings that I did when I was four and a half (when you're that age, the half is very important!). I was pleasantly surprised when I saw them, especially by the fact that there were quite a few recognisable characters included...

O Captain! My Captain!

I woke up this morning to the news that Robin Williams had passed away. He had starred in so many films that I watched as a kid – including Mrs Doubtfire, Hook and Jumanji – as well as films that I watched when I was older including Insomnia and One Hour Photo.

But probably my favourite performance of his, and one that I watched countless times growing up, was as the voice of the Genie from Walt Disney's Aladdin.
