Marker Pen Anime

Has anyone else in Sydney seen this guy drawing? He camps outside the Town Hall station, or near-ish that anchor monument:

Every time i walk past there he is using marker pens to draw anime figures on a white board. He has the pic on his phone for reference and then just enlarges them as he draws.

It’s totally cool, unfortunately not permanent… I’ll talk to him next time i go past there to get his story. Who is your fave anime character?

Pokemon Go

Yes i know I’m late to be blogging about this (sorry), but as a Pokemon Master it’s still my duty…

Is this a joke?

Is this a joke?

I joined the game late, well maybe like 3 weeks after it launched? I’m currently level 23, just short of 24, but i haven’t been playing for quite some time (mostly because I still don’t have Charizard so I’m pouting about it)…

Near my work – abundance!

It’s strange how before the game came out, i’d always think to myself, ”yea, those would be my six Pokemon, they’re my fave, they’re so cool…” but when you actually play the game, your top six are totally not of your choosing (unless you’re willing to work hard, or should i say walk far), but otherwise if you’re just average into the game, your top six will mostly be determined by luck (hatching eggs, being in the right location at the right time).

When the game first launched, we went to the Sydney Opera House on the one Saturday, and literally everyone was consumed by the game – it’s one of those iconic moments, when people are no longer flocking for a selfie at a landmark, but rather to catch something rare…

I did try several times to take the Opera House gym, but its literally impossible, so many people are challenging it, it ends up actually like glitching and kicking you out – too much traffic. I have taken over other less crowded gym locations temporarily.

Is anyone else playing/was playing? I chose the yellow team because i liked the whole instinct/intuition story behind it, then later i learnt my friends all chose blue just because it’s their favourite colour, how annoying.

The Phoenix Orb Project

If you are in need of some cool Pokemon merchandise, head on over to The Phoenix Orb Project

Light Up Poke-ball Crystals Squirtle Charmander Bulbasaur

Light Up Poke-ball Crystals Squirtle Charmander Bulbasaur

They make custom made Poke-balls as well as the gym badges. They seem to focus on the original – Indigo League merchandise.

The also have metal and battle damaged Poke-balls which look really cool. I always start with fire type though, so i’ll probably end up with the Charmander crystal Poke-ball. Who is your starter?

Pokemon Legends

I just signed up for Pokemon Legends; an online MMO RPG where you can battle, catch and train over 500 Pokemon! You can choose a starter Pokemon from any of the regions under the water/fire/grass type as per normal. Obviously i went for the fire:

My Starter Pokemon - Charmander

My Starter Pokemon – Charmander

I ended up battling and catching 3 Pokemon so far, (Sentret, Caterpie and Starly). Not the greatest line-up for success, but its a start. I have also run out of Poke-balls and im not sure where i can acquire more of them?? I do have money (3010 Pokemon currency) which i intend on spending on new attacks for Charmander:

Hungry for Animation

I am sure we are all hungry for animation in the figurative sense (i simply believe that the household life-cycle is 1st childhood, 2nd childhood etc) i’m on my 3rd childhood now; and am hungry for animation in both the literal and figurative sense. Check out these handmade pancakes, testament to some cool animated characters:
