World Malaria Day 2010

Buy-A-Net’s World Malaria Day is today and I am here live on location. (((Stealing internet from our local Hotel/pub… mmmm hotel and pub. good combo)))) So I have some photo’s of the bands! I think you’re all gonna like em’. I am however not going to post them yet, I want to touch them up a bit before they’re debut (the photo’s not the bands! I don’t think I’m allowed to touch the bands.) They were all really good by the way!

The line up was as follows;

Andrea Gauster (Got her CD!)
Earth, Wind & Haggis
Jim Tidman (Ft. Paul Langlois)
Brothers Molotov
Chasing Curiosity (Got their CD!)
Beautiful Inferno
Spread the Secret

So that was what was playing… most of them are local bands! Chasing Curiosity came all the way from Ottawa, which was really nice of them. It was also really nice that Paul Langlois  from the Tragically Hip came out to sing along with Jim Tidman!
Anywho, this is was just to touch base and to let you know that I’ll have more photo’s later in the week!

Web Commics.

SO! I have found some web comics in this world that d0nt involve Japanese school girls, Xbox made robots, or talking pink cats… (you know who you all are!!) well instead of trying to drag out this blog with mundane and ever popular slang filled writing I’ll just cut to the chase;

These are just two of a large batch of interesting and beautify drawn comics I found at; http://topwebcomics.com/

The Dreamer – Story and Art by Lora Innes

ABOUT;

‘Beatrice “Bea” Whaley seems to have it all; the seventeen year old high school senior is beautiful, wealthy and the star performer of the drama club. And with her uncle’s connections to Broadway theater, the future looks bright ahead of her. Little does she know that her future might actually be brighter behind her.

Bea begins having vivid dreams about a brave and handsome soldier named Alan Warren–a member of an elite group known as Knowlton’s Rangers that served during the Revolutionary War. Prone to keeping her head in the clouds, Bea welcomes her nightly adventures in 1776; filled with danger and romance they give her much to muse about the next day. But it is not long before Beatrice questions whether her dreams are simply dreams or something more. Each night they pick up exactly where the last one ended. And the senses–the smell of musket shots and cannons, the screams of soldiers in agony, and that kiss–are all far more real than any dream she can remember.’

WHAT I THOUGHT;

It was really drama filled, super easy to fallow and had some really good facts in it about the American Revolution. I enjoyed the characters, they were very believable (especially for being in a strange situation!), i especial enjoyed the art! It was beautify done! I was compelled to keep ready, drawn into the drama and the emotions that the main character shows throughout the story. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a light read, and something of this time period!

The Phoenix Requiem – Story and Art by Sarah Ellerton

ABOUT;

‘The Phoenix Requiem is a Victorian-inspired supernatural fantasy story about faith, love, death, and the things we believe in.

On a cold December night, a gentleman stumbles into the town of Esk, gunshot wounds leaving a trail of blood in the snow behind him. Despite making a full recovery at the hands of an inexperienced nurse – and deciding to make a new life for himself in the town – he is unable to escape the supernatural beings, both good and bad, that seem to follow him like shadows.

As they try to discover why, the nurse must question her beliefs and risk her own life in order to protect her family, her friends, and those that she loves.

Warning: Contains horror, violence, supernatural themes, drug use, and brief suggestive content. PG-13.’

WHAT I THOUGHT;

This was very heavy, and deep considering its a web comic. Although I love the first one, and I am excited for the rest, this one is my favorite of the two.  The story line was so in depth with really rich characters and a lot more questions that demand explanations, however I was not as in love with the art work, as I was with the last one…. although they both suit their own story line best! It may have also helped that there were more posts in this one, which added to my ever growing fondness for the characters. I would suggest this to anybody who is interested in a darker story. I will admit it is filled with scary nightmarish things that may not be fore everyone. (I.E. Benny-Boo this would be great for you!)

ALSO – If you enjoyed the art work done by the artists, you’ll be happy to know that they both have DeviantArt accounts!!! (I have stalked and stolen for my computer backgrounds!) And here they are;

Soulless – Dress-up Game

For any girl who loves dressing up online dolls AND loves the 1800 then do I have something for you!

——>  GO —–>  http://savivi.deviantart.com/art/Soulless-Victorian-Dress-Up-137124180

This is a promotional game for Gail Carriger’s book Soulless. I found a quick little blurb about this book on the internet for you to read, as I have never read it;

Soulless is a novel that will appeal to readers of steampunk, urban fantasy and paranormal romance. A fast paced novel filled with vampires, werewolves, tea and parasols.

The main character, Alexia Tarabotti, is feisty and fun reminding one of Buffy the Vampire Slayer at some times and Elizabeth Bennett at others. A clever reworking of the Victorian era.”

– Jessica Strider ‘Sci-Fi Fan Letter’

All I can say is that I enjoyed the game, and will definitely try out the book…. I love steampunk!

This is one of many different clothing options that I did. And one of the dresses combined with an object does something!!! Dom DOm DOM! But you’ll just have to try them all out to see.
