The Silence

Second season of Doctor Who premiere last night. The Silence are the new bad guys in black suit and tie. The interesting thing about them is the second you look away from them, you'll forget them. Because of this ability, they're able to remain hidden from humans for who knows how long.

Pretty interesting first episode so far. These bad guys are just a small part of other surprises that went down.

Sakura Con 2011

Today, I went to Sakura Con in Seattle, Washington Convention and Trade Center. A big event for all things manga and anime. Got there at 10:15 AM to wait in line to get register and didn't get the badge to get in till 12:30. That will teach me to pre-register for the show next year!

The show was very crowded and I score some Copic makers. There were lots of people cosplay for the event. Check out the photo parade below. It's a fun show if this is your thing.

Weeping Angel

One of the coolest bad guys from Doctor Who. Their first appearance on DW is one of my favorite episodes.

The deal is.... if you look at them, they turn to stone. But the second you close your eyes (or blink), it'll move super quick and get closer to you. So the only way to keep them away is to never blink and always keep looking at them.

Ogon Bat

There are few specific memories from childhood that always stuck with me. One of them is playing with a model toy at my cousin's house in Hong Kong. I didn't even know the name of the character. It was a gold figure with a skull face wearing a black cape. He's inside a black coffin and when you open the lid and push a button, he would stand straight up. When my mom told me it's time to go, I cried and want to take the toy with me. She had to purchased the toy from my cousin so I would go home. This moment always stay with me. Mostly because of what my mom did for me.... the toy was just part of that story.

Fast forward to a few days ago. Just doing a little web surfing and I ran into a ebay listing for a unassemble (still in the original box) Ogon Bat model. The name didn't mean anything to me but the pictures hit me like a ton of bricks. It's the same toy that I cried over so many years ago! I felt like I was in a time wrap and seeing a old buddy that I thought I would never see again. Wow... I could totally spend the bucks and purchase a piece of my childhood back (this time with my own money).... but I decide not to get it. The reality is: if I did buy that model kit, I would never open it or put the toy together. There are only few of them left in the world.... there is no enjoyment to own something like that.

So I pay tribute to that moment in my youth with a fan art and instead of spending money on a toy that I can't play with, I'll probably take my folks out to dim sum this weekend. :)

Baby Doll

I like the Sucker Punch movie. The fight scene and the visual are great. The story does have their problem but overall, I can see where it was going and I get it. So be warned... It got a lot of negative reviews, but for me... it was worth seeing it on the big screen.
