      A Spirited effort.

      2 years ago

      I pulled out all the stops and finally lurched my way through the last couple of levels of the Halo 4 campaign this week. This is not to say that my efforts to get less crap at video games have paid off just yet, but i certainly feel that I'm doing a little better. I've also been playing through a bit of Spartan ops solo, which has been a blast. Next on my list I think will be Deadspace, having watched Michael's series on youtube. I'll also be playing a few other games as always, but I'm trying to make it a point to play through complete campaigns on a few specific titles. I'm also slowly hammering away at LA noir, which I originally had on the PC through steam, as it struck me as being a game I could make a good shot at going for all the achievements on, at least on the basic game itself. i may also try for DLC at some point.

      Costume projects from the not too distant past

      2 years ago

      Well It's been a good wee while since I last posted for one of my costuming projects, so here's a couple of images for projects I've done over the last year or so.

      Xbox and me

      2 years ago

      So after many years of poverty, I am finally in a position where I can afford not only a console but also some games to go with it. I bought my xbox a few months back, and now I'm starting to get stuck in and actually play a few games. This has lead me to a less than startling realisation...I'm actually not very good at video games. I mean, I think I used to be ok. I played the crap out of BF1942 back in the day and I don't recall terribly embarrassing myself and I did ok with the original xbox, playing Crimson skies and Halo. However, it seems that with my large lapse in gaming, I lost whatever moderate skills I might have had. Not really a shocking revelation I know, but it has provided me with a new goal. Get less shit. A simple goal to be sure, but one I shall have to work at. If anyone is interested in seeing for themselves just how dire the current situation is, my gamer tag is Brokkenscreen, feel free to drop me a line.

      Best wishes

      I know it's a little early to be saying this, but the date has rolled over here. To all my friends in the USA, happy independence day.

      I know there is a lot of ill will in the world directed at America, that the rest of us often see only the mis-steps and forget the promise, but today I want to put that aside. Americans have a right to be proud of their country. The USA was founded on beautiful principals, the will to be free, opportunity and prosperity for all who have the will to work for it. It has given birth to grand and beautiful ideas. The Constitution, The Bill of Rights. Grand promises written in beautiful prose, and etched into the minds and hearts of people all over the world, not just citizens of the republic from which they emanated. Although we don't always agree with the methods used, or even the interpretation, in some cases, of the pursuit of freedom, and mistakes have been made, it is my sincere belief that the people of the USA are striving to fulfil the promises made at the founding of their country, and for that they have the right to be proud.

      So, Happy Birthday America. Have a good one and many more.

      Stroking my own ego

      3 years ago

      I found a picture of me I liked and thought I'd share it seeing as how I mostly don't like photos of myself. It was taken at a police awards ceremony and stands as the only picture I have of myself in my favourite suit.

      The award was a certificate for putting out a fire set by a serial arsonist. The fire was set at a marae (marr-eye) across the road from my parents house. I happened to be out on the deck having a smoke when I saw the flames.

      Exercise in excitement...

      I had an industry training course on pump selection and applications yesterday. It was exactly as exciting as you think it was.

      The continuing saga of the Beard revoultion

      3 years ago

      After my somewhat hasty decision to put down the beard revolution some months ago, (and by put down of course, I mean "obliterate".) It was inevitable that other groups might rise up in the name of their cause. Over reacting is a sure way to give rise to new threats. So, it seems, has been the case here.

      I am now in hiding. The surviving cells (referred to a follicles) in the face region have joined forces with their "spiritual brothers" in the scalp to overthrow my domain. few images have escaped of the carnage wrought, but I did manage to smuggle out one. Those with weak stomachs should avert their eyes.

      Behold

      I don't know how long I have left before they find me. I can only pray the UN hears of my plight and send re-enforcements in the form of clippers or a barber to quell this insurrection and return me my my rightful status.

      Trying to decide whether or not to do something for my birthday this year. I haven't had a birthday party since I was about 10 so maybe it's time.

        Mostly Halo related props and video game items. I like the things you've created. I can only imagine how long that stuff takes.

        G'day. What kind of prop making are you into? I've mostly done Medieval and fantasy stuff, but I've done a couple of sci-fi pieces on occassion.
