Yay for American Independence. No, really!An odd statement for a quasi-neo-imperialist to say, I know, but if the Colonials hadn't (justifiably) got shirty over lack of representation in Parliament, the British Empire would never have become the behemoth that it did.Yay for American Independence. No, really! in Personal More Like This
Thanks to the rebellion/revolution, the British Government changed the way it conducted itself so as to ensure such an incident would never happen again.
Had they not, a revolution similar to that seen in France, 1789, would have very likely occurred on home turf.
The French leadership maintained their "all powerful" fašade, and in assisting the American colonies, spent a fortune. This further angered their already irate people, who, in seeing that it could be done, decided to have a little revolution of their own.
So, with the economy booming thanks to renewed transatlantic trade between Fair Blighty and the newly formed United States and with Britain's arch enemy France focused on tearing itself apart, there was nothing to stop the Empire's expansion.

Cold, dead hands.I'm not going to personally voice an opinion on guns in America. I don't live there and as such: I really don't care how its people live their lives.Cold, dead hands. in Personal More Like This
I will say, however, that guns in general scare the crap out of me. Seeing, with my own eyes, CO19 march past me while in London and SO18 (http://www.eliteukforces.info/police/) patroling Heathrow sent shivvers down my spine, and those are the guys who know exactly how to implement deadly force quickly, but are trained not to.
If I saw a random, untrained guy in the street with a gun (which is unlikely, thankfully, given that gun control laws here make it damn near impossible to buy even toy firearms) I'd probably soil myself.
In light of everything, though, I think attention should be directed to an amusing clip from the very, very dead (and, be warned; foul mouthed) Bill Hicks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MEzCtyRWP8

Or you were, but couldn't do much more than drool on the keyboard and gnaw the mouse like a rusk.
Luckily for you, some die-hard fans have spent the past 8 years using Valve's own tools to lovingly rebuild the legendary locale that Gordon Freeman escaped over a decade ago .
.well, most of it. Xen is missing for now, but that bit was sh*t, so who cares?
Black Mesa will be free to download on the 14th September .which really did surprise me.
When I first heard about the project (a good few years back) I thought Valve themselves would snap up the concept and bundle it in with an "Orange Box 2".
I'm usually opposed to remakes, but the prospect of seeing Half Life 1 rendered in glorious Half Life 2 detail does make the geeky nerves tingle.

The Happy World of Haribo...oh...OH...OH, GOD!!!I like to take a bag of Haribo gummy sweets with me when I go to the cinema.

If so, I really hope they go the whole hog and make Batman old.
If it were my project, I'd write it so Batman had been at the crime fighting game for decades prior to the alien-in-tights showing up. With Superman around, what use is there for The Batman? The authorities have always been gunning for him, but the public had an uneasy tolerance. Now everyone see him as a dangerous liability.
Of course, Batman is the toughest, most cunning man on the planet. If you could just take him out, it would have been done by now. So Superman is asked to deal with him.
The whole story would be based around the conflict of ideals: both support the concept of justice, but while Superman has faith in the system, Batman sees it as totally impotent and has taken on the responsibility of supporting it on his own shoulders.
And Batman would win.
Batman ALWAYS wins.
Robocop 2.0The Robocop reboot was one of the few acts of lazy plagiarism that I wasn’t really bothered by, and was in fact looking forward to.Robocop 2.0 in Personal More Like This
“WHAAAT?!” I hear some cry. “You can’t mess with a classic!”
To them I ask: Have you watched the original recently?
Unlike, say, Ghostbusters (1984), the original Robocop has not aged well, mostly because it was a satire and satirical comedy/comedy based on popular culture tends to date very quickly.
Also, because of the limitations of special effects at the time: Peter Weller now looks decidedly goofy clomping around “future” Detroit in that clunky costume. I’ve no idea how restrictive it was, but I’ve a sneaking suspicion that he took the Anthony Daniels approach to playing a robot and made a point of moving like the Tin Man in a monsoon.
The reboot has ditched the satirical slant of the original and become a character-based drama. Those hoping for a repeat of the ‘87
One dead console.My XBox 360 died last night.......again.One dead console. in Personal More Like This
I was merrily replaying Modern Warfare 3 and was on the final mission when the screen went funky. Now, this happened 3 or 4 years ago, so I knew what was going to happen; I turned the console off in the hope that a reset would solve the funky-screen issue, but rather than a clear image - I get no image at all.
It's a known problem, especially with the first generation of 360 machines and as mine is a "Launch Team" version (If you worked for M$ at the time, they gave you a special edition one with green plating) it certainly falls into that category.
Something to do with the cheap, shoddy soldering used by M$.
Looks like I'll be better off just replacing it with one of the new streamline models, which is a shame, because last time I got my current one repaired I also had it pimped out with these awesome green internal running lights that made it look nuclear-powered or something

Olympic Fire and IndustryWell; the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics certainly was .surprising.Olympic Fire and Industry in Personal More Like This
As I predicted; there was quite a bit of content that just had me squirming in my chair, thinking "No! NO! Why did you do that?!". The absurdity of the nod to the NHS, for example, and the sudden appearance of various storybook villains, which felt (for lack of a better word) "Disney".
However; the "historical" section of the ceremony's opening half utterly blew me away. An unexpected appearance by Kenneth Branagh, playing Isambard Kingdom Brunel (who essentially WAS the Industrial Revolution), began a spectacular sequence that pretty much summed up what Britain's past was all about; fire and industry.
It was, without a doubt, the highlight of the entire spectacle, and if you either didn't get the chance to catch it or didn't bother to watch it, I urge you to track it down online!
And then there was James Bond .charged with the most difficult seduction of his career.

The Fractal Universe:icontechgnotic:The Fractal Universe in Personal More Like This
Is a photograph only a record, something created by a machine? Can photography ever truly be considered art? That question seems quaint and laughable these days, but if you do a little research you will find that once upon a time it was a raging debate. Thankfully a consensus has been reached that the agency of the photographer – his or her eye and critical mind – choosing the subject and manipulating the machine (the camera that is the art instrument) is what establishes photographs as potential works of art when created by an artist-photographer. Pretty basic common sense, huh? So why then is there now a debate as to whether FRACTAL ART is truly art – or just something produced by poking patterns into a computer? Isn't it just really random e-graffiti, a fibonacci button mash?

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same.
