GIRL MEETS BUG!

 

  Silkworm Pancakes. Today we have a bit of a multi-legged treat for you. For today we speak to Daniella Martin, or as she is more widely known, Girl Meets Bug. Now for those of you who are not familiar with her, Daniella is an Insectivore or lover of Entomophagy. (That’s eating invertebrates. Bugs for the layman.) Bugs! Yes, you read that correctly. She is a lover of eating all things bug. Deep-fried crickets. Why invertebrates? They are abundant, sustainable to farm, and nutritious. Your favourite buggy meal? Waxworm tacos. What’s your message to the world? Mostly that not eating insects is an irrational choice we can no longer afford to make. Have you ever been to Africa? No, sadly. (You’d […]

VAC! (Velvet Acid Christ!)

 

 CHURCH OF ACID. (1997) Today we interview one of my favourite American bands. VAC -Velvet Acid Christ. For over two decades VAC has been making waves and spreading weirdness throughout the underground music scene; with his unique lyrics, master sound sampling, and esoteric equipment tastes, VAC is set to continue reigning in the underground music scene for years to come. FUN WITH KNIVES. (1999) What’s origin of your name? My brain created it on drugs. LOL. What genre of music do you consider your work to be? Many fused together. Bits of Industrial, bits of Techno, bits of Trip-Hop, bits of EBM, bits of Goth, bits of Darkwave. Bits of weird. What’s the history of VAC? Started in 1990 in […]

Kung Fury

 

 “When I started this project over a year ago I was driven by a strong will, love for the 80s and action movies to create a unique movie that the world has never seen” – David Sandberg Some of our older readers may remember the ’80’s, for those that don’t, it was a time when being cheesy, and having bad hair were cool. And ’80’s movies were no exception. For Swedish film maker David Sandberg, the fact it is 2014 is no reason not to make an ’80’s movie. He has written (and stars in) KUNG FURY, an over-the-top action comedy featuring: laser shooting arcade-robots, dinosaurs, Nazis, vikings, Norse gods, mutants and a Miami cop who plays by his own […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 30

 

 “No, he’s clinging to life all on his own.” -Odo. Welcome back. It’s 2014 and today we begin another Star Trek: Monday. Today we look at the wonderful world of Deep Space Nine and in particular DS9’s chief of security, Odo. “Lose your eyes, take a deep breath. Clear your mind of everything in it – if there’s anything there… Breathe… breathe… Now, what do you see?” -Odo. Odo memes are few and far between. (Good start to the year, yes?) And as such we only have 2 in the box for you. This one, is a dual meme (We’ve seen them before.) In this meme we see Odo and Dax.  “There’s a list of names, Bajoran names, the one […]

Project G.e.e.K.e.R.

 

 “An enemy is only a friend that wants to kill you.” -Project G.e.e.K.e.R. Running for 1 season of 13 episodes, Project G.e.e.K.e.R. shocked CBS and her viewers with its bizarre style, quirky humour and peculiar animations. Now 1996 was a long, long, long time ago for most of you; and as such I doubt many of you have seen Project G.e.e.K.e.R. So I shall give you a brief synopsis… and maybe a little more. “I’ve got an idea for a story about a guy in a yellow jumpsuit who’s allergic to floors.” -Project G.e.e.K.e.R. Created by American writer, illustrator, animator and musician, Doug TenNapel (Tommysaurus Rex, Earthworm Jim) and starring Billy West (Futerama, Ren and Stimpy.) The show, set in […]

An Early Look at SteamOS

 

 What is SteamOS ? Most people out there have probably heard of Steam. But for those of you who haven’t, it is a software package created by Valve Corporation (Half-Life, Portal,  Source), initially as a DRM -patch delivery system for their games. In its early days many users outside the U.S.A did not have very powerful/stable internet, and the requirement of being connected to the Steam service whenever playing a game was not well liked. Over time connectivity improved and became less of an issue. Valve also began to convince other publishers to release their products over the Steam service, thus becoming an app store of sorts. As game/software purchases are linked to your Steam account, you can reinstall computer/setup a new […]

WELCOME BACK! WELCOME TO 2014.

 

 “Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering ‘it will be happier’…” – Alfred Tennyson. Welcome back. It’s a new year, a new month, a new start and a fresh hangover. 2013 already seems like a distant memory. Last year was a year of great possibilities: We planted the seeds, nurtured them as often as we could, and now, after 365 days, those possibilities are beginning to bear fruit. “For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice.” – T.S. Eliot. This year 925|Rebellion is going through a metamorphosis of sorts. We shall still be dedicated to all things Geek, but we shall be tumbling farther down the rabbit hole. […]

THE GOON SHOW!

 

 “Splendid, lads. Tell me where it is and I’ll reduce your sentence from two years to four.” – Seagoon. Haaallooooo everybody! Welcome to the first day of the New Year. That’s right, it’s 1951.. or it should be. For 1951 was the year of the Goons. Can you believe it’s been 63 years since the splendid Spling-splang-splong began? Where has the explodable cardboard cut out time gone? Well let us start by walking backwards for Christmas, across the Irish Sea, and thus see if we can find… “THE LOST GOONS” (Drum roll, please.) “Well, sir, it’s like this, see. At 12.30 a monster lorry draws up outside, ten men jump out and wallop me on the head. I turn round […]

Total Annihilation – A Legend Going Strong!

 

 “What began as a conflict over the transfer of consciousness from flesh to machines escalated into a war which has decimated a million worlds. The Core and the Arm have all but exhausted the resources of a galaxy in their struggle for domination. Both sides now crippled beyond repair, the remnants of their armies continue to battle on ravaged planets, their hatred fuelled by over four thousand years of total war. This is a fight to the death. For each side, the only acceptable outcome is the complete elimination of the other.” – Opening Credits. Released in 1997 Total Annihilation is approaching 17 years old now, yet is probably still one of the best most innovative RTS games ever made. […]

INVADER ZIM!

 

 “What’s wrong with you? All you talk about is aliens and ghosts and seeing Bigfoot in your garage!” – The Letter M. For two years, 2001-2003, a large number of people lodged pencils in their brains, collected piggies (PIGGIES!) sang the “Doom Song,” and ran around in circles shouting “WEE!” The reason for this apparent mental break? Invader Zim! Invader Zim first aired on the 30th of March, 2001, on Nickelodeon, becoming an instant cult classic, thanks to its peculiar brand of humour, twisted plots, grotesque and fantastic characters, and all round sense of “WTF!” “Bwahahaha. Inferior human organs!” – Zim. For the dozen or so of you, who have never watched ZIM. I shall give you a brief background […]
