High School of the Dead 2 – It’s always those you least expect

When Saya picked Kouta  I had no idea what she was thinking  teaming up with him… I mean, a guy crawling around on his knees can’t be that good at fighting by your side during a zombie invasion, right?

High School of the Dead 1 – The Zombies are Coming

What would you do if you suddenly find yourself in the middle of a big group of undead trying to kill you? Run for the hills?

After reading DC Comic’s Blackest Night, I got the urge to watch High School of the Dead, which Shinmaru has been talking about in his blog.

Blackest Night – not your average zombie invasion

Aside from the fact that it involves the DC Universe’s (or multiverse) superheroes, the undead of the Blackest Night event is different.

They are not your mindless zombies that want to eat your brains… No, they seem intelligent enough.  Aside from that, they also got their memories before they died.  This makes it hard for the living heroes to fight off the zombies.  It is like they have returned to life… Well, as long as you ignore that shade of gray skin, rotting body and probably dead smell… You get the picture?

Kid knows his values

I haven’t played first-person-shooting games in a while, and since I have been having a few, uh, stressful situations, I decided to whip out the old game and start blasting some head off.

While I was playing, a kid neighbor, probably around seven years old, looked over my shoulder to see what I was doing.  He often watches me play or use the computer at times.

In the mood for some classics

I recently fell into a mood to listen to a ton of classical music.

I can’t really say why, though it could be because I am feeling stressed out by a lot of stuff going on with my life, and I need something new to listen to so I could relax.  Maybe it could be because I am getting sick and tired of all the pop music I am hearing almost everywhere I go.

Interesting Texture-based Web Design Collections

I like using textures in my works.  Does it show a bit with the way I design or choose designs?  A slight hint of texture goes a long way in giving a work depth and character.

Seeing these more than 30 web designs that used textures and the way they used and placed them made me think of how I can use textures more interestingly.

Below are a random selection of the designs that took my interest.

The texture gave Clickfarm’s site a more earthy feel.  It does look more like a farm, doesn’t it? The clean content just seems to pop right out.

The texture on this site is barely visible.  The background uses a color that is just slightly darker than the theme’s, giving the site a clean and simple feel to it.

Watch your head! What really caught my attention on this one was the deer-head man.  But then my sight expanded to its environment…  and its surreal world of floating stuff and perspective is revealed to be full of textures, making it seem “real”.
