Since I was a teenager, I have been telling stories for the fun of it through film, video, audio drama, and more. Check out many of those projects here, or read on for comments on other stories or items that catch my interest.

Doctor Who: Dust Breeding [Big Finish]

July 16, 2014 Leave a comment

20111025173942b022_dust_big_cover_mediumDust Breeding continues the trends of these Big Finish audio dramas of taking real world historical events and re-imagining them with science-fictiony rationales and backstories.  For example, back in Storm Warning, we had the crash of the RU101, and in Loups-Garoux there was the trial of Pieter Stubbe.  This time around, we have the painting of the Scream by Edvard Munch.  The work of art proves to be the result of a primal, celestial scream let out throughout time and space by an ancient weapon with the unimaginative name of “The Warp Core” that was created to deal with horrible biological monstrosities called the Krill who the newly re-disfigured Master (who is still really into the whole anagram thing – “Mr. Seta”) is resurrecting in order to both waken and weaken the semi-dormant Warp Core in order to use its power seize control of the Universe!

Go go go internet!  Thanks to you (and to a fellow blogger here), we all get to have access to this…one of the stranger things that I’ve bumped into lately.

The notes on youtube said that it was just a clip found on some guy’s old VHS tape, but it seems more likely that it’s just something that someone decided to make and to share…just because they could. Read more…

Have you heard about the Doctor Who World Tour?  It’s a promotion for the upcoming 8th season of the revival series, where incoming Doctor Peter Capaldi and incumbent companion Jenna Coleman are going tour the world, literally.  They are visiting seven different cities to talk up the show at some sort of unspecified fan events, accompanied, depending on availability, by showrunner Steven Moffat.

The best wordless comic I have ever enjoyed? Easily, hands down, without a doubt…

The Arrival

Shaun Tan, an artist and film maker from my very own Western Australia (my home for over 17 years), drew this extraordinary piece of work about an immigrant who makes the journey from his home country to a new land, obviously in search of a better life. He leaves behind his wife and daughter, and attempts to create a new home to live in, in the hopes that eventually his family can join him.  Read more…

Wordless Comics

July 11, 2014 Leave a comment

Comics, we know, are primarily a visual medium.

This is displayed in the fact that this site is utterly devoid of any comics that I have created,  even though I…

1) Love them
2) Love telling stories in just about many other audio-visual media – eg movies, audio dramas, games, and so on
3) Actually have a bunch of stories that I have written or conceived of specifically for comics Read more…

Broadchurch – Really As Good As All That

July 8, 2014 Leave a comment

There’s a lot of television that I don’t have the time to watch, but just recently, I made time for Broadchurch.  The British mystery-drama from 2013 has won tons of awards and has been critically acclaimed, touted by many as a high point in dramatic television.  It’s easy to see why. Read more…
