Giant Salami Warehouse

On my way to work every morning, I pass this by:

Being a brand of cold cuts, I'm guessing that those warehouses must be packed to the brim with hams and bacons and sliced turkey breast. I also like to think that maybe they store novelty meat items like a giant salami in there.

And ignore the fact that my drawing looks like two huge dongs.

The Invasion is Imminent

This space invader was spotted lurking a short distance away from the University, obviously scouting the area as a potential target. I believe that there are more of these insidious invaders located around the city, and I will endeavour to seek them out. It is of paramount importance to ascertain what the intentions of these creatures from space are.

Invasion is a series of street art displays by an anonymous artist, with mosaic pieces inspired by the old Space Invaders videogame. First appearing in Paris in 1998, these invaders have been spotted in other cities including Los Angeles, New York City, London, Geneva, Vienna, Tokyo, Bangkok and even Mombasa. And the invasion is still continuing even as we speak.

Macross: Ace Frontier

I'm a big fan of Macross. Or at least, I'm a big fan of the Macross concept, but the execution always left me cold.

Watching episodes of the original show now only serves as a reminder to how outdated and old the show was. The animation, characters and stories that captured my imagination as a child has lost much of its shine.

The videogames were mostly mediocre as well, and I feel they have never truly captured the feel of Macross.

But there's no denying that Macross still holds a special spot for me, and this game could be the one. It looks bleeding awesome.
