Tokyo Comic Con

Tokyo Comic Con like other comic conventions around the world would not have been complete without featuring some sort of cosplay. Unfortunately there were not as many in cosplay as I expected. This is likely due to people waiting to see if the convention was a success or not or them being there on a day I was not. Whatever the case I managed to capture a few pics of the cosplay which you'll be able to see on my Facebook page in a few days. For now however I have managed to whittle it down to a top 5. 5. Jillian Holtzmann First up in 5th is this fierce (I apparently use the word fierce now...) looking Jillian Holtzmann from the latest incarnation of Ghostbuster. Her blonde wig stood out from the crowd and she definitely had the attitude ...

Driving Dead

With the Walking Dead coming up to it's mid-season break I thought it would be appropriate to share Select Car Leasing's infographic on the vehicles used in the show. They've pulled together a selection of the cars used by main characters and critiqued how they would cope if the zombie apocalypse from The Walking Dead actually happened. Some of the vehicles featured in the infographic include Dale's Winnebago, used as the command post in the early seasons of the show for the main characters, The Governor's Dodge Ram, used in the prison assault, which is made for ramming, Glenn's Dodge challenger, which some might say is a perfect getaway vehicle. Have a read and let me know what you think. The Driving Dead by SELECT CAR LEASING. If you want to get in touch contact me Also is you want ...

Tokyo Comic Con

So this weekend I got to visit the first ever Tokyo Comic Con which was one of the main reasons I decided to come to Japan at this time of year. This is the second year in a row I've had the opportunity to go to a convention overseas and I'm very glad that I took the opportunity when it presented itself. As the convention is in its first year there are some learning curves for how they can improve for the next time but there are some things they got really right. What they got right Venue The venue for the event was perfect for the size of the crowd and expected and near enough to central Tokyo for easy access. Held at Chiba’s Makuhari Messe from 2 to 4 December attendees flocked to the first Tokyo Comic ...

So the new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 has hit the internet and it has blown up for many reasons but for one very little one in particular...Baby Groot. Yes the very big character in the previous film who became very small at the end of the space teams first adventure is back again in the newest film and this little guy packs a punch (to the heart). Watch the trailer below but be warned he's too cute for words. At the time of writing this, 2 things are trending on Twitter, "Guardians of Galaxy Vol" and "Baby Groot". The internet without a doubt loves the little guy and I do too. I AM GROOT! If you want to get in touch contact me Also is you want to keep up with all my latest posts ...

8 bit cafe

Having located this bar/cafe hidden away in Shinkjuku I have to say that it is a must visit should you ever get to go to Tokyo (in Japan...don't know why I said that but felt needed). The cafe is a retro gaming one which has a small service charge of 500 yen that you pay and a minimum of one drink to buy every 1.5 hours. This allows you to stay and play whatever you want from the selection of retro games at your disposal, including but not limited to Mario Kart on the NES, a random puzzle games including one on a giant Gameboy Classic, card games and a table top arcade game. My friend and I opted to play Mario Kart for most of the night with me dominating for most of it (don't believe ...

The Apprentice season 12

This years candidates for the Apprentice are without a doubt some of the worst I have ever seen, however I keep watching this unique form of torture because I perversely enjoy shouting at the screen for the idiots to do something correctly. The latest set of dismissals (yes set because they were that bad) has seen two of the last males leave together meaning that there is only one remaining. The last man standing being Courtney Wood. The list of male candidates in order of dismissal: Oliver Nohl-Oser Mukai Noiri JD O'Brien Karthik Nagesan Samuel Boateng Paul Sullivan Dillon St. Paul Sofiane Khelfa I'd like to say the last few were better than the rest but I cannot say that with a straight face because as always there were diamonds in the rough (or rather better pieces of glass than ...
