Comics #3 + Animation #11

Michel Vaillant is a French comic book character created in 1957 by Belgian (French-born) cartoonist Jean Graton. He appeared for the first time on the pages of Tintin (presented in Comics #1 on my blog :P)

Michel is espacially dear to me - I used to watch every single episode of the cult animated TV-series, based on the famous French comics. Michel and his team of daring racers use all kind of vehicles - in the episodes you can see cars, F1, motorbikes, jets, monster trucks and so on. Their opponents are the corrupt team Leader. The series were big hit when I was a kid and I really enjoyed the new motion picture, it keeps the spirit and the actors are great - they look just like the animated characters! The movie is highly visual, with beautiful race scenes and some ofthe typical Luc Besson euro-action atmosphere. High speed races, very nice animation, great characters, a lot of fun. I wonder why I can't find it neither on VHS nor on DVD. If you want something similar - go watch Nascar Racers on Jetix, but Michel was far more better. There are also live action TV series from the 60s, but I still haven't seen them.

Music #14

OK, here's one from Electrasy, Don Bluth's "Titan A.E." soundtrack (great movie, great soundtrack!)

Cosimc Castaway

Lose my head to the chemical freeway
Comin' up on overload
In a mystic new dimension
Purify and sanctify me

What, so I'm in no end game
Move my piece right off the board
Losing sure is easy so I am no more

But I'm not broken,
in my dream I win
In here I'm nothing,
a Cosmic Castaway

In my head I'm a chemical dreamer
Speed up to burn out mode
Comin' up in the 5th dimension
Beautify don't crucify me, yeah
So I need no mind game
poisoning my lonely soul
Losing sure is easy
so I am no more

But I'm not broken,
in my dream I win
And I take over,
coz I'm no loser

And I'm in and you're not,
bad dreams don't stop
But I'm all screwed up,
a Cosmic Castaway

And I want but have not
Bad dreams, lost thoughts
In here with no pain,
you hurt me again

And I want but have none
I should beat the alien
But here I'm no one,
a Cosmic Castaway

a Cosmic Castaway

Back to the Blog

Here I am, back to the futu... I mean, the Blog.
For those who wonder whant took me so long to post again...
Well, it's been a busy period (and it still is). Some friends from abroad dropped by for a week, some days away from home, trains from here to there, some mishaps with my poor old PC, cleaning and repairing, exams... Now I'll have to study for the latin exam at the end of the month, and the only thing that keeps me going and fight the laziness is the thought of the possible scholarship. And some mates from school are back in the town before the start of their terms, so I also try to spend more time with them, while they are here. (hey, yo, Delfo - yeah, this one refers to you also... I know you're reading this O_O)

The Bran project is moving on, we do what we can. When we have more time we'll do more.

Some ideas are bumping inside my head and probably the next month I'll begin writing a new story...
