The Thing!

 

  “There are no enemies in science, only phenomena to be studied.” -The Thing From Another World. Science-Fiction and Horror are two genres that thrill and disturb the masses. From giant fish to alien invasions, mankind takes great delight in all things disgusting; all things beyond our understanding; all creations most vile. And one such creation, a vile creation that is far beyond any human understanding, is The Thing. For over 60 years The Thing, an aggressive trans-dimensional shape-shifting multiform of unknown origins, has thrilled and terrified audiences across the world. From novella to feature film, The Thing has conquered a number of mediums.  “Its development was not handicapped by emotional or sexual factors.” -The Thing From Another World. In 1951, […]

My name is Duncan Bell and I am a graphic designer working in advertising. I spend my moonlighting hours designing and developing my own video games.

QCF Design.

 

 Today we speak to the local talent behind Desktop Dungeons, QCF Design.   Would you mind introducing yourself to the readers of 925|Rebellion? I’m Danny Day, aka “Dislekcia”. I run an independent games studio in Cape Town, called QCF Design. We just released a game called Desktop Dungeons, it’s pretty good, you can get it on Steam for PC and Mac. I’m also part of the committee over at MakeGamesSA.com, which is a non-profit organisation tasked with growing the South African games industry. And why did you decide to enter the world of gaming? Games are fascinating. What else could the intersection of learning and responsive systems design be other than utterly engrossing? (My point exactly. -Ed.) How long have […]

Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace.

 

 “I’m Garth Marenghi. Author. Dreamweaver. Visionary. Plus actor. You’re about to enter the world of my imagination. You are entering my Darkplace.” – Garth. Well that was amazing. What a unique viewing experience that was. That was without a doubt one of the best TV series I have ever seen. “What was I watching?” you ask. Let me tell you. I have just finished watching all six episodes (I know a short TV series.) of Channel 4‘s, dark-comedy, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace. How does one explain a series as unique as this? Well, the best place we can start is at the beginning. (Who saw that coming? -Ed.) “I need to crack this, Dag, cos if not, Won Ton will be […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 32

 

 “There must be some way to retrieve that data.” -Doctor Bashir. Today we look at everyone’s favourite Anglo-Arabic doctor, Julian Bashir. “Well, I must have picked up that habit from you.” -Doctor Bashir. Here we have the classic “Keep Calm” meme. This is a relatively new meme, though it has quickly achieved a viral status. “Yes, actually.” -Doctor Bashir. Next we have this dual-meme. This meme features Odo and Bashir, and makes reference to Captain Picard’s love of Earl Grey tea. “I thought this was a hospital, and that you were a healer.” -Doctor Bashir. Finally we have this an ode to the Mary Shelley classic Frankenstein.  “Do you keep tabs on everybody, Constable?” -Doctor Bashir. And there you have […]

Zombie Film S.A.

 

 Today we meet a local chap -Jarrod Saunders- who is producing short South African zombie films. Why a zombie movie? There are many answers to that question. One: because Zombies are relevant and trending. Two: because I wanted to do something a bit more fun with zombies and a Christian film (yes, this short film was funded by CVC Media, a Christian media company). Three: because it gave me a platform to experiment and do some of the weirdest things I’ve done in film so far. I mean there is so much stuff hidden in the short film that people haven’t seen or heard. For example, not many people notice the classic Frito’s jingle playing in the background of one […]

 With the new Doctor Who just around the corner an official costume photograph has been released by the BBC. Our 12th Doctor comes well dressed and conservatively stylish.According to Peter Capaldi, “He’s woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics.

SHADOW SYSTEM!

 

 Twisted Sex Malfunction.  Today we interview the Irish based band, Shadow System. Now Shadow System is a relatively new face in the underground electronic scene, though they have the style and the skill to become a major player. Cold And Double Bladed. What’s the origin of your name? The name took some time to get right. I wanted something with shadow in it but a lot of bands and DJ’s use Shadow. (As does do I. -Ed.)When I was listening to a band called Krystal System and that’s when it click into my head, Ah, System. What’s your history? Adam Gamble had a idea for a band project since 2004 but never got things up and running until 2010/2011 era, […]

LARVA!

 

   BURIED ALIVE! Today we speak to a well known Spanish, Dark-Electro band, LARVA. Now LARVA is planning/hoping to come and perform in South Africa, so spread the word to all those in the music scene. Lets see if we can get them here! Look at the FACEBOOK PAGE for details. YOU ARE ALONE. What’s the name of your band? What’s the origin of that name? It has many nuances. The name became for what we feel sometimes: sometimes we feel like a worm, insignificant life form, underground, crawling. Nobody can’t feel us, nobody can’t see us. All the life is on the surface, and we are underground. The feeling of not belonging to a group. It also has to […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 31

 

 “Triage, the sorting of the wounded, forces decisions that – I gotta get a grip. Focus! – decisions that test what it means to be a doctor…” -Jake. At the end of last year, I thought we’d hi the bottom of the Star Trek Meme Monday bucket. But just when you think you can’t get any fewer than two pictures, we discover that there is only ONE Jake Sisko meme, and he’s not even in it. LOL! So instead here’s an interview. [youtube id=”tMsHcDfL2Kc” width=”600″ height=”350″] “We weren’t supposed to divulge this, but since you left us no choice… We’re working for Starfleet Intelligence.” -Jake.
