Mario’s 3D odyssey- evolution, revolution and how the future can learn from the past.
3D Mario games. An evolution of a series and character that’s about as linear as a Quentin Tarantino Film. Or at least, as referential and as just plain “out there” as one. As a 16 year old, going to my local games store and just watching someone play Super Mario 64 was an almost trance-like…
It’s a horrible feeling trying to convince yourself that things don’t affect you when they do. The show must go on but at what price. A day of remembrance but a stealth ambush of regret and words never said for fear of sentiment or futility. Frustration trying to hide vulnerability. Obligations masking the need to…
So a few months ago I got back in contact with an old mate of mine who was/ is in a band. I decided to take his bands vinyl on a guided tour of Tokyo (with my talented friend) and here are the results. Thanks to Dancehall for the great music and Luwispurpul for the…

I am Yours- the ebook test.
This is the first version of my game/ book experiment called I am Yours.
Desta: The Memories Between review (in progress).
Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans. That pause before you hang up. That frustration from honesty. That innocuous distraction that stealthily helps you open up. I’ve been through them all, and while my experience of paradoxically relying on the place and people that were harming me are more than decades old…

The Matrix Resurrections review- Dream Theatre.
Those who are good at what they do make it look easy. For all the financial arm wrestles, meticulous storyboarding and influence pilfering from all kinds of cultural and philosophical nests, the original Matrix was as effortlessly crafted as it was expertly intricate. But the world has changed. I feel that the Matrix Resurrections tried…
Back to Wonderland- the cultural impact of The Matrix.
DISCLAIMER- I’m going to try not to rehash years old theories, theses and academic deconstructions of the film, as I’m not that clever and quite frankly they already exist, so here is my personal opinion about the Matrix and my anticipation for the next/ new installment. The Matrix is probably my favorite movie. There. I…
Mastodon: Hushed and Grim review.
I’d like to start with a couple of seemingly random yet obscurely related references. First, the definition of compound: A substance composed of two or more elements chemically combined in definite proportions by weight. The second is a quote from a comic book villain. “I told you my compound would take you places. I never…
