ABC Awards Nomination~!

So the lovely tagged me in this other blog award thing doing the rounds - which handily gives me something to write about this week ..even if it is just about me yet again .pretty sure everyone is bored of me talking about myself at this stage, but meh.

So the rules are:

Home and business switch help is crucial to relieve the tension of your job

Relocating home is on the your little one and obtaining divorced as the most stress filled points for most people's life.

And a statistic that, every single year, variations minimal, because the operation is one who no amount of new know-how or nice tools can help with.Some careers included are designed complicated since they can not be handled by someone. Nevertheless they are not using a sufficiently large range to bring about the assistance of an entire removals staff. If you do not know so many people or we're not in a position to help, it might generate a fairly complicated placement. This runs specifically true inside a huge area including Birmingham - but guidance is taking place from the immediate man and a van assistance.

Roman Holiday

My semester of travels officially began .starting with our first stop: Rome, Italy. CEA planned this trip for us, providing us with a hotel and transportation that did not go unappreciated. There's a lot to see and do in Rome, however, so our weekend was filled with a TON of walking which was both overwhelming and straining on my feet (they still hurt this morning).

Naturally, it was raining almost all weekend upon our arrival. My only complaint about it Italy in general is how it is constantly raining, and Rome proved to be no better than Florence in that aspect. On the bright side, it's literally Antarctica at home in the states so I'd prefer the 50 degrees and rain over the -3 with snow any day. Umbrella's are always available too every corner you turn there is a man holding 12 umbrellas that comes in your face like "BRELLA?" I have fallen for this twice already, and both of my umbrellas have been probably the worst purchases I've made thus far. The first one I was tricked into buying literally turned inside out, bent, and the handle broke all within one day.

The Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay


Escape From Butcher Bay had a turbulent development, starting out as a game based on the 2000 film Pitch Black before evolving into a tie-in for the 2004 follow-up. This allowed it to have a two-year production cycle, which was especially unusual given that licenced games were ordinarily churned out in less than a year at the time. Times were tough at Swedish developer Starbreeze during the making of Riddick. The studio shrank from 80 to 25 people throughout Butcher Bay's beta, and most elements of the game didn't come together until later into development. Vivendi even tried to cancel the title at one point, but immense pressure from Universal kept it in production.

Siege Spots

TODAY, DEAR READERS, I am going to talk to you about my favorite game in my PS2 library. Yes, I love it even more than Mister Mosquito.

THE GAME I SPEAK OF IS A HIDDEN GEM IN ITS OWN RIGHT. It's gained a cult following over the past few years, but is still relatively unknown. I might go so far as to say it's a legend; a beautiful, beautiful legend. Ladies and gentlemen, for the unaware, feast your eyes on Chaos Wars.

All-New X-Men vol. 1: Yesterday's X-Men

Having the original X-Men -- Scott, Jean, Hank, Warren and Bobby -- travel through time to see what has become of their future selves is nothing if not clever.Even if mainstream superhero comics thrive on "the illusion of change" there's still no denying that some of these characters have drifted quite far from their original characterizations.That Cyclops is now running an outlaw group of X-Men feels like a natural extension of his character arc over the past few years sums it all up and proves to be the main catalyst for the story here.This is all the idea of Brian Michael Bendis as he's now steering the "X-Men" in the same way that he did for the "Avengers" over the past several years.With this first volume we get some solid writing, a few good ideas, and fantastic art from the always-excellent Stuart Immonen.It's just about enough to cover for the fact that this is really the first part in a much larger story as opposed to being a complete one in itself. After escaping from prison in the aftermath of "Avengers Vs. X-Men" Cyclops has established his own team, seen here as consisting of Emma Frost, Magneto and Magik.With this group he has set about recruiting new mutants whose powers have manifested in ways that have seen them detained by local law enforcement and government agencies.The X-Men at the Jean Grey School see this and wring their hands in frustration at what their former leader is doing to the state of human/mutant relations and their inability to do anything about it lest they set off a mutant civil war.Except for Beast, that is.After a stray remark from Iceman about how shocked the Scott Summers who first joined the X-Men would be to see his future self, Beast gets the idea to travel back in time and have the original team come forward to try and stop this madness.Yes, it's an idea that has horrible repercussions for the space-time continuum, but when you're like Beast and facing death due to further complications from your secondary mutation, these things seem awfully appealing. There are several moments that really sell what Bendis is trying to do here.The conversation between Beast, Storm, Iceman and Kitty Pryde about what to do in this impossible situation really sets up the problem with Cyclops' actions and their own situation quite nicely.Beast's concession to Iceman about "being right" is also clever too.Magneto calling Cylops on his denial about being responsible for killing Professor Xavier, amongst other things, is particularly effective in the way that he cites his own experience with madness here.Cyclops' decompressed internal monologue upon seeing his younger self and time-travelling teammates really captures the trauma of the moment as he tries to figure out whether or not he has finally lost his mind.Then there's the fantastic two-page spread when young Jean looks into Beast's mind to find out what has happened to her in the intervening years and we get a comprehensive look at the character's defining moments in visual form. In addition to these, there are also plenty of clever asides thrown in throughout the volume.Iceman and his younger self screaming whenever they see each other.Wolverine giving a lecture about what to do when faced with a ninja master and subsequently falling prey to Jean's skills.Beast replying, "Which time?" to Jean's question about when she dies.What I'm getting at here is that there's a lot of good stuff here, except that it exists in moments.The main narrative thread that's supposed to carry this title -- having the younger X-Men confront Cyclops -- only gets one scene here.It's clear from the way things are structured that this is going to be an ongoing concern with this title so the issues here are really just setting up things rather than telling a clearly defined story.However, it's those "good moments" that get me to give Bendis the benefit of the doubt here in his approach and enjoy what's here for what it is. That's not to say that it's all good here.One of the plot threads introduced with this volume involves Cyclops, Emma and Magneto's powers malfunctioning (for lack of a better word) due to their exposure to the Phoenix force.Bendis clearly sees this as a way to add tension to their struggle, but these people are already global outlaws, hated by members of their own kind, and their leader is faced with the idea of his younger self calling him out on everything he's done in recent memory.I honestly think that's enough tension as it is and having their powers break down on top of things just seems unnecessary to me. Also an issue, though a minor one, is his handling of Emma Frost's dialogue.Though Bendis does a decent enough job with the rest of the cast, he doesn't even try to approximate her proper English tone.Either he just didn't want to do it or was just being lazy about it.As such, though the character's innate bitchiness is still on display it's not anywhere near as entertaining. I'd say more about Immonen's art here, but I'd just be reiterating the fact that I think he's one of the best superhero artists out there.The man's work adds an essential vibrancy to the proceedings and I'm certain that I wouldn't have enjoyed things as much without it. Overall, this first volume of "All-New X-Men" is a good start to the series and Bendis' tenure with the characters.I like the idea of Cyclops leading his own outlaw team, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the time-travelling X-Men adapt to living in the future and what has become of them in the intervening years.Though this story could be extended indefinitely, it can really only end one way:the younger team gets mindwiped and sent back to the past.Based on that, I certainly hope that Bendis has a plan for the story he wants to tell here and doesn't stretch things out too long.That said, if you're a fan of the writer and the characters then you'll find more good than bad to appreciate here.

Perfecting The Enterprise End User Experience

EDITOR'S NOTE: is CEO of identity management firm . Follow him on Twitter .

Everyone talks about user experience. It's often referred to in terms of how "sticky" an app is: how easy it is to use, how engaging it is, how relevant it is to what users are doing, etc. All are elements that contribute to a compelling experience, regardless of industry or app type. But while user experience is well understood and has always been core to the development and success of consumer-facing apps, the same is hardly true in the enterprise world.

Five older anime series for beginners.

*Cross posted from my sister blog.

Since I will soon be reviewing anime and manga for a popular website, I decided to do a quick post about five older series to introduce to fans of newer anime, or even those who are just looking for an introduction series.I made a point to choose each from a different genre so that comparing them to one another would be difficult.I also made sure that they were at least a decade old.I would have gone for much older series, however I just don't see a newbie watching Galaxy Express 999 without falling asleep, or Ranma 1/2 without feeling very confused.No offense to either of those mentioned.They each have merit in either artistic presentation or pure nostalgia depending on who you ask.However, what I am looking to talk about are accessible series with tangible story lines.I want to talk about relatable protagonists and villains that are recognizable as something more than a throwback from a saturday morning in the 80's.

Natasha Bedingfield Sings The Pirate Fairy Theme, Who I Am

There's no doubt that Disneytoon Studios' upcoming CG animated adventure 'The Pirate Fairy' is going to be a visual feast, but it turns out that it's also going to be one heck of an experience for the ears, especially considering that it features award-winning artist Natasha Bedingfield as the inner voice of Zarina through her songs.

"Zarina is a little offbeat and contemporary and these songs showcase her personality so well. We used one of Natasha's songs, 'Weightless,' as a temp track and fell in love with it--so much so, we decided to use it in the final film. We felt Natasha's voice so perfectly spoke to Zarina's character, we asked her to also perform our original song 'Who I Am,' which was written for 'The Pirate Fairy,'" says Peggy Holmes, director of "The Pirate Fairy.

The Beginner's Guide to Anime, No. 31

The series covered in this column has some similarities to last week's piece covering The Irresponsible Captain Tylor. It is a comedy, based on a series of light novels not translated into English. However, whereas the former is science-fiction, this series is a fantasy in the Tolkienesque, DungeonsPrincess Amelia Seyruun, a shrine-maiden whose belief in justice often leads to more problems than solutions; and Xellos Metallium, a priest whose true powers and motives are often shrouded mystery.

One of the central appeals of The Slayers series is that it is very funny comic treatment of the fantasy genre. The show often mocks the situations the characters find themselves in which themselves parody various elements of fantasy. While it is arguable that the characters are somewhat two-dimensional, the stereotypical roles they mock are handled well.

The great debate

Perhaps only for aficionados of the left-right debates, and perhaps only for those who are drawn to American politics, but this may well represent just what it says it is, "The Ultimate Fight between Left and Right".

In the red corner, we have Bill Ayres, the former leader of the Weathermen in the 1960s, an American domestic terrorist and the actual writer of Barack Obama's Dreams from my Father.

Love Is In The Air

Hello lovelies

Hope you are all having a better 2014 than me. I have been ill since 1st January! First had extreme fatigue, then UTI and now the flu, hoping the year improves shortly. Although I have caught up with a few Disney movies which has been nice.

As we enter February it means we have a new challenge over at. Our very first challenge was amazing with over 50 entries and I really enjoyed looking at everyone's entries, so inspirational and gorgeous. There really are some amazingly talented crafters out there in the world and I feel privileged to be part of the crafting movement.
