To Pastures New.

March 24, 2010

Well old girl, it’s been a fun ride, but four years down the line I need to move on.

It’s just the old content, it doesn’t reflect particulary well on me since improving my abilities, that and I just wanted a proper url rather than this .wordpress gubbins. The blog will continue to deliver the same content as has come to be expected, but I’ll be posting more stuff I’ve done in general.

The new homepage is www.dalagonash.com

The new blog page is www.dalagonash.com/blog

See you on the other side.

Dalagonash: The movie.

February 15, 2010

Well, not written about me directly but I’m playing the main role in some film students piece about addicted gamers, so I feel like the role was written for me even if not a personally commissioned biography. It’s called ‘Game?’

Future Star.

So yeah, I have absolutely no idea as to the script, if I have to talk at all, but I shall be putting my unique mug in front of a camera for some students and hopefully propelling them towards earning a first. Naturally my emanating charisma shall propel the piece into the realms of brilliance without so much as trying, and the editors will have an easy job piecing it together.

Anyway, this should be a fun experience for me if nothing else, and I may ruin some poor group’s work in the progress. I’ll keep you all filled in!

Sunday Fun – The Cadbury’s Full English Breakfast.

January 31, 2010

All credit to Charlie Brooker and the folks over at Fatuous, this made me laugh. A lot. I was expecting some form of chocolatey alternative to the traditional helpings of various pig meats but instead it’s some horrendous meat, chocolate, and eggy offense to British cooking, but well worth a giggle.

See the full horror here.

This isn't even the worst of it.

Can’t say I’ll be attempting it anytime soon…

Anime intros are awesome.

January 23, 2010

So I’ve recently started re-watching Ghost in the Shell: 2nd Gig as last time I tried to watch it I stopped half way through for some unknown reason, but since starting again I’ve come to one conclusion.

Them Japs know how to do an intro.

I mean, an intro is meant to get you pumped for the show that’s coming up, and with a few exceptions I’ve always sat and watched anime intros in their full for every episode because they’re awesome.

Is it the music? More often than not it’s a crucial factor, but also the montage of beautiful images that are spliced together are often times much more exciting than anything in an intro to a British show. The important thing here is that most these shows are for a more mature audience rather than for kiddy winks who need the bright colours, aimed instead at older people less willing to let go of watching pretty animation who cover up the immaturity of the medium with mature sounding plots and characters.

So here are some of my favourites in handy YouTube form.

Trying to think of some other shows with equally brilliant ‘I gotta watch that’ intros that aren’t of the eastern animated variety and the following come to mind, to be honest our intros always seem a little more laid back or rushed, but I thought these were fitting considering the demographic of show we’re dealing with. If you’ve got any favs whack ’em in a comment!

Coming back.

May 22, 2008

I really don’t get on with this blogging do I? It’s just start, stop, start, stop and never any kind of consistancy. But I am coming back, and I’m going to come back with a full week schedule of posting content! I say a full week, it will probably be a five day cycle. But rest assured, it will be more interesting than simply reviews and reams of text. As you may notice by the new layout I made about two months ago, I want to do something more.

Watch this space.

For the next few days… Impressions on new (and old) games.

March 21, 2007

I played a lot of games while visiting Pell, and as such I will be delivering opinions on them for the following days, some are new and some are old. I won’t make it a game a day, but it will probably take all week! But, nothing today. As  am tired.
