Papercraft Friday #38: Captain America

April 24, 2009


Continuing with our mini-theme of superhero papercraft, this week we have BlueDragon’s very nice model of Captain America on his website Action Papercrafts.  It looks very nice and is not overly complicated to build.  The model is in Pepakura format and comes with a separate file for optional parts and a stand.

Papercraft Friday #37: Spider-Man

April 17, 2009


Wonder Twin powers, activate!  Err, I mean, superhero fans, unite!  It’s time for a series of superhero paper models!  This week we’ll kick it off with Spider-Man, which I found in these forums.  The model link is buried down the page, or you can click here.

(How cool would a Wonder Twins model be!  I wonder what form and shape they would take?)

Game Impressions: Gears of War 2

April 13, 2009



I played the original Gears of War shortly after I started this website.  I had meant to do a Game Impressions on it back then, but never got around to it.  Gears of War 2 came along and now I’ve played it as well.  So what did I think?  How did it compare to the original?  Read on, grubs! Read the rest of this entry ?


Happy Easter!

New K9 Series Trailer

April 11, 2009

The trailer was made to promote the new series at the MIPTV festival in Cannes, and apparently the music, titles and voice of K9 are not final.  The BBC is not involved in the production.

They are involved in the production of new Doctor Who, which airs in a couple of hours in the UK.  Tune in!


Congrats to the St. Louis Blues

Blue Jackets Blues Hockey

After a rollercoaster of a season, the St. Louis Blues clinched a playoff spot in the Western Conference this evening with a 3-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.  A loss by the Nashville Predators against the Minnesota Wild earlier in the evening helped seal the deal.  It was do or die…. had Nashville won and St. Louis lost, the Blues would be out of the playoff hunt.

Old time Blues fans will remember when it was almost a given that the Blues would make the playoffs.  (Some would says it was also almost a given that they would bow out before seeing the Cup too.)  But hard times fell on the Blues, and they haven’t had a playoff bearth for the past 5 years.  In the preseason, some “experts” were picking the Blues to be in last place this year, because the team has been rebuilding from within and going with a lot of younger players.  But the Blues proved them wrong with a stunning late season comeback.

The Blues were in last place in the Western Conference on February 15th, and have been the NHL’s best the second half of the season at 24-9-7.  As a fan, it’s been great to watch.
