Japan 2016 Photo Album

Better late than never, here’s my photo album from my visit to Japan, between 26th March, and 9th April

The trip took us from Sapporo, where I wanted to visit my grand fathers grave, then by train down to Hakodate. Then by air down to Tokyo for a few days, before hitting the Shinkansen to Osaka. Using Osaka as a base to also visit Himeji, Kyoto and Nara.

Site Updates

It’s that time again. The current theme has served me well over the years, but it is not so friendly for mobile. The name Longbow’s Lair, has also run its course, and it’s time to re-brand it. Other than the name and theme though, most things won’t change.

Oh and look out for another post soon, with my collection of photos from my recent trip to Japan.

Gone all 2007

So it seems I’ve finally caught up to 2007, not only have I got this twitter thing (about which I have another blog entry forming) but after 920 days since the last time I used it, I’ve re-installed Steam.

The Mind’s series and Transformers

So over the holidays Barney’s Mind (YouTube) reached its finale, and while Freeman’s and Shephard’s Mind (YouTube) are busy being worked on, a rather awesome rendition of Chell’s Mind (Portal) has appeared to fill the void (YouTube).

Meanwhile, whilst sorting through my old collection of flash video files, I stumbled across the Transformers break-dancing short, by Mark Wilenkin and Lazer (amongst others). Since the original sites and video have long since disappeared from the ‘net and the video is so good, I figured I’d re-post it here.

Please note; I take absolutely zero credit for any of this work, apart from re-hosting it.

Oh and I have a couple posts sitting around the Drafts waiting to be written properly, so hopefully more stuff soon.
