Not now, Donkey!

With Wayne Rooney out of the Manchester United game against the formidable FC Basle (well, formidable in Basle anyway) Who will Alex Ferguson call on? Just for novelty value he should get Rooney's brother off the bench... when I say, bench, I mean Swamp. And when I say, brother, I mean... brother!! And Hernandez is also out of the game with a dead leg. (not completely dead mind you, just an appendage) These footballers, eh? They throw themselves to the ground at the slightest touch and now pull out out of a big game just 'cos they're slowly decomposing. I say get Donkey up front with Shrek and see how the partnership works out. I like Donkey. Sometimes I imagine he's walking beside me when I go to the shops. Just thought I'd throw that in! Oh, and Sid from the Ice Age movies... I imagine a lot of things!

Don't mention the war

On this day in 1975... people were talking about Fawlty Towers which was first shown on TV the night before. Yes I should have posted this yesterday but getting home at 6.30 in the morning meant I wasn't in any state to post anything. Anyway, my 5 favourite episodes? 5: The Germans. 4: The Kipper and the Corpse. 3: The Psychiatrist. 2: Basil the Rat. And best episode EVER... Communication Problems. "I can't see the sea." "You can see the sea. It's over there between the land and the sky." "Well, it's not good enough!"

Me and 3D : part one

Several months ago armed with a copy of Blender, a piece of 3D software, and way too much time on my hands, I worked on a few animated cartoon ideas. But along with having more interest in my drawn cartoons and the thought of posting them on YouTube only for eight people to even bother looking at weeks of effort, I decided to shelve the ideas. One cartoonwould have been about the character below leaving a fancy dress party and walking home.
As he walks along a row of shops he notices one of those newspaper headline boards with a headline that isn't something he'd want to read in his situation.

Maybe in the new year I'll get round to finishing it along with a couple of other cartoons which I'll post some quick renders of soon. Oh, and that's not an oven chip in the bottom two renders. It was a shape used for human scale!!

Too MUCH rubbish?

Boffins have warned that it's a bit crowded up there in space. So much so that action needs to be taken otherwise some of the rubbish might fall back down to earth. You see, it appears that we have a bit too much junk floating around and no one wants to see a little kid leaving Mcdonalds clutching his chicken Mc-Nuggets only to get splattered by a toilet. (Well, if I was honest, there is a part of me who would laugh at that.) Their solution is to use giant magnets to draw all the crap away from earth. I'm pretty sure I've seen this on Thunderbirds and it didn't end well! Alternative? Oi, Bruce Willis! Get suited up, it's time again... What d'ya mean he died in the film! Did Steve Buscemi live? He'll have to do.
