S.T.A.L.K.E.R. realistic

Although it is in Russian it is fabulous to watch

And now watch this, just because good video games are inspired from disasters, that doesn’t mean catastrophes are fun!


Turning to mac

28 July, 2010

Y’know there many reasons as to why I prefer Macs and their OS from Windows. It is not only because simply macs look beautiful, of course they do, but MacOS is far more stable and quicker than that ol’bucket-of-crap called  Windows. MacOS doesn’t need patch after patch to be safe and work right, MacOS rarely crashes etc etc, you all know them reasons.

There was only one reason that kept me from buying a Mac all those years and that is it’s price! And since I’m spending about 3/5ths of my average day in front of a screen doing graphics and 3D (and yes playing games when not on work!) I demand a high end machine, which in Apple terms that means more expensive than they are. Read the rest of this entry »

Incinerator, Old School Thrash!

16 August, 2009

INCINERATOR_Logo_RedBlack

I’ve just realized that I haven’t posted anything about my thrash metal project called INCINERATOR. It’s an ongoing old school thrash metal thingy (aka project) that I’m having since 2000.

Influences are purely from the stuff I’ve grew up with: D.R.I., very early Metallica, early Slayer, early Sepultura, Kreator, Destruction, Demolition Hammer, Heathen, Atrophy, Sodom, Exhorder, Sacred Reich,  Believer, Motorhead, Protector, early Anthrax, Messiah, Tankard, Sabbat… good old school Thrash in short!

The lyrics deal with all the cliche issues a thrash band can have, after all INCINERATOR was never meant to be a pioneering band, so the issues dealt with are basically your average Evil, your average Satan, Read the rest of this entry »


Vacations Time Again!

15 August, 2009

Yeah chaps! ‘Tis this holy time of year where I shut down the pc @ work and get some serious relaxation time!

No plans for a trip this summer, cause my finances are kinda low, plus I’m saving for a new power-pc setup around Christmas time, so time will be spent mostly home: drawing, sleeping and of course video gaming!

Have a good one and I’ll see you again in a couple of weeks! 

btw I wish I had a Mustang and a hottie like this one, but even drawing them can do I suppose… or it can’t??


Did you know that?

29 November, 2008

Yeap it’s officialy quiz night here at Vagpod. No, wait! don’t get your drinks yet! Actually yesterday evening I was reading a book about graphic design and I came across some interesting historical facts which I’ll share with you. Now go and get the booze

:

  • The term Graphic Design was introduced in the USA by Dwight Wiggins in 1927.
  • The famous London Tube map, (more or less) as we see it today, was designed by Frank Beck around 1908.
  • Guttenburg created the first printing press by adapting a wine press in 1440-1450.
  • The typewriter was invented in 1865. Read the rest of this entry »

Ressurection by stupidity!

1 April, 2008

Silly me!

Although being involved with the “things with loads of keys on” (aka computers) since 1984, sometimes I’m still driven by pure stupidity! Here’s what happened yesterday; read, laugh and learn!

I woke up Sunday morning, so naturally (of course) the first thing is to go make myself a nice cup of coffee and turn on my pc. So I did! But… the damn thing wouldn’t boot! Hell! It wouldn’t even show the bios-set image of the motherboard!!!.. Read the rest of this entry »
