As you are aware I'm a fan of anime and manga. I also enjoy a variety of films especially foreign ones . What I don't like is when films and animes are dubbed in English as the voice acting is awful and half of the dialogue is mistranslated.  And don't get me started on Dub titling, that's when they use the American script instead of the Japanese when watching it in Japanese. In other words, when you watch it in japanese the Subtitles don't match up. This is the case with Naruto, because it's on Cartoon Network and Fox kids it has to be in English, not only that, Scenes are cut short or cut out due to the violent content and suggestive scences. I've seen the full episodes and the action is brilliant and can be somewhat bloody.
The problem is that people don't appreciate the films due to it being subtitled. I understand that people have difficulties reading and some may have sight problems but those who have no problems should check out the Japanese films e.g. The Grudge 1 and 2, One Missed Call 1 and 2, Ring 1,2 , other films connected to The Ring which are Ring Virus, Ring 0 (the very beginning) Spiral, The Bride also check out Into The Mirror, Pulse,  Twins Effect(comedy horror- martial arts-vampire film) Taxi 1,2,3 (French versions)Pans Labyrinth, Only Human, The Ophanage (Spanish films).
The thing I hate is when they remake films and ruin them. The films that I think have been respectfuly remade are The Ring 2 as although Americanised they added their own twist to it. Also check out, Pulse (the one with the ghosts in it not the one where the house is struck by lightning and the house comes alive although a good film also) and Mirrors, (American version of into the mirror).
Last week was a really interesting as I presented at the DJ School. I actually surprised myself as I talked about my website and portfolio for at least 15 minutes.
I could of said more but we'd be here all day.

I know this is a different subject but have you noticed that modern games have become less fun and more of a chore?
Look at the point and click adventures, quality background animations, character animations , sound and mind boggling puzzles.
In some, the voice actings not great but you hardly notice due to the humour. And these PnCs have a good story that keeps you hooked until completing the game.
Some of the best titles that I've played so far are: The Monkey Islands, Broken Swords, The Longest Journey etc. Other Retro games I really like are Golden Eye, Banjo Kazooie, Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong, Castlevania, Abe Oddessy+Exodus, Turok and Stupid invaders. And these are only a few!

The best thing about these games are, they have a SAVE ANYWHERE feature, so, if you get really far in the game and your poor eyes can't take anymore or you need to go out, save, switch off and you'll be in the same place as before. Where is that in modern games? (with exceptions of a few)

Also in modern games, they take the console too much for granted! Limitations of Consoles was great because it made the game makers think and do more eg In Donkey Kong (N64) you had to find certain characters who had specific abilities to do goals in levels you'd already been. The puzzles got your brain working.

Also where has the replay value gone? The only longevity is; games are extremely hard and frustrating. Now it's play, complete, get rid of. Perfect Dark and Golden Eye got you doing missions then gave you something for completing them ( if you did it within a certain time limit) and more if played on a harder setting.
You could play missions again in a more fun way, but if you completed it with a cheat on, it wouldn't let you continue. Same thing with the Tony Hawks games in my opinion, they 've gone down bank abit from when they first started.  They've become ridiculously hard the music doesn't make me feel like "yea lets go for it" and and some missions aren't that clear - it's sometimes guess work.

I do like a variety of games because I see a vast amount of beauty which others do not see. Some inspire my artwork (retro and new).

All I can say Is "Look at the world in unblinkered eyes and look upon things non-judgementally. (that's is how I found all my fantastic friends) Open your mind to everything and who knows what talents you may find within yourself." These are what I say and not what was in a fortune cookie.

 hey  thank you to all who have visited the site so far and i hope that some stuff has cheered you up if you were feeling down.  I've added more this week a little bizarre maybe. I know that you're probably thinking "wheres the comics?" Believe me I'm working on them!


Hey thank you to all that have visited my site. All comments are gratefully recieved and makes me want to add more. As you should hopefully be aware, that this is a new site and some may have difficulties accessing it. In cases like this, please enter or you can get a link from the DJ School website.

I have also updated my site.  Please let me know if there is anything, within reason, you would like to see on my site. All suggestions are welcome and considered!

Here's one I put on this week.

This is a picture that I created a few years ago. I scanned the image into the computer then used a paint programme to increase its quality.


Hello and welcome to my website, I hope that you'll love my creativity. The art work that is on this site is ranged from old to quite recent. The art work has been digitally enhanced for further enjoyment. There is more stuff to come from me so keep checking out this site. Ideas are always welcome.
