Over the last six months I have been using Linux Mint and I have to say I am very impressed with what I have.
Lots of Free open-source games and software to use.
It’s so fast.
I already use Firefox to browse the web. No problem there.
For my day job I work from home so this is perfect for working remotely. For those of you who use Remote Desktop Protocol on Windows, I use Remmina (Flathub). Works pretty much the same way.
The word processor I use is LibreOffice. It c
I just watched the musical version of The Prince of Egypt. And WOW. What an experience it was. It was at the Dominion Theatre in london.
I watched the animated film so many times. It’s a masterpiece. So I was excited to see the musical version. It didn’t disappoint. It was epic.
The actors were phenomenal. The choreography was mesmerising. The dancers were pretending to be water, sand, and fire. The way they moved along the ground and threw themselves in the air. Their athl
The 1993 film is about a TV weatherman named Phil Conners (played by Bill Murray) who is told to cover the Groundhog Day event that takes place every 2nd of February in a town called Punxatawney. He doesn't want to go and openly expresses his discontent for the place and the people who live there. But when he gets there he is stuck in a time loop where the 2nd of February keeps repeating itself. No one is aware of the time loop except Phil. No matter what he does he cannot es

Here is the link to download the PDF file of the Fan Comic I made. There. Now that I got that obligatory warning out of the way let's dive into the introduction. So recently I went down memory lane by playing Earthworm Jim on my Sega Mega Drive. It's been sitting on my shelf for years. But what possessed me to play it was that I was waiting for the arrival of the second Earthworm Jim graphic novel that Doug TenNa
From 'Macbeth' to 'Romeo and Juliet', I found the plays of William Shakespeare fascinating since I was a kid. It was a round that time I learned the art of tragedy, playwriting, and that not every story had a happy ending. It was bitter pill to swallow. But I loved it, I learned something important. There is so much that tragedy can teach us.
When I read 'The Birth of Tragedy' by Friederich Nietzsche, my understanding of it was that the Ancient Greeks used art and culture
Welcome to the little tour of my paintings where I tell you a story about each and every one of them. Blue Horse
Inspired by the many horse paintings I have seen, instead of painting a horse that is white, black, or brown, I decided to make him blue with pink and purple eyes. And I wanted to show the incredible anatomy off a horse by exaggerating the muscles. Instead of painting a still landscape for the background, I blended the colours to give sense of motion.
In order to draw Chinese ships more accurately as part of my Graphic novel, I needed a reference to look at. I decided to build a model from scratch.
Here I share my step by step process.
Firstly, the model I purchased was the Red Dragon Chinese Junk made by Artesania Latina.

This is the thickest book I have ever read. AlthoughI've been reading about Japanese history for years, I didn't think I'd get any value out of this book. I took the plunge anyway. It was well worth it. I wasn't expecting this. It's an Epic Tale. The best thing about this book is that every chapter is nice and small so you can read it in small does. Ideal since it's a big book. It will take some commitment. After a while it will feel rewarding. If you are into history,
The Blacksmith was nicely situated next to a forest where there is a beer brewery and stables for horses. It was like walking into a medieval village in a fantasy world. Or in some role playing video game. Quite immersive.
My 5-star review on Google Maps is here:
The Blacksmith who greeted me and taught me was Jude. I signed up to do a Blacksmith Taster course because I wanted to know what it feels like to work as blacksmith.
A little recipe for you.
I love cooking. To me the kitchen is a science lab. There is so much you can try.
Eventually, you come up with something so awesome you can share with your friends, and family, and with the rest of the world.
Whether it's for dinner or for something to eat while watching a movie, I invented something ideal for both occasions. You can eat it hot or cold.
I call it the Mayo-Broccoli Dip.
I don't always use specific weights or amounts, I only use the
No less than 2 weeks after my initial rant about noisy drivers at night, there was an accident just outside the street that I live in. Not sure why I left it this long to upload but one main reason was that I wanted to let the dust settle first. Maybe it was a dilemma about justifying such a post. After convincing myself that it was for a good cause, in the hope that it will save lives and prevent anymore accidents, I decided to go for it anyway.
You see. This is what happe
Astrology was something I always found fascinating. I wondered how a group of stars had an impact on us and how they shaped our personalities.
The one thing we humans all have in common is that when we look at the stars, we realise we are part of somehting vast, it reminds us that are are part of somehting important, and we are so lucky to be alive to see it.
It's amazing how for so many years people associated personalities with something so far away. It somehow made our p
I had a little tragedy in my life recently. My favourite Japanese restaurant closed down. It was called Zen. I loved this place. I loved it so much that I gave it a 5-star review on Google maps. It was a detailed review with some of my best photography. But alas, my contribution wasn't enough to convince more people in my town, Southgate, to come and eat here. It was empty most of the time. In a way, that was actually a good thing. This was the place where I often came to rea
Before I begin, no blog or blogger is without a rant to let off a bit of steam. To share with the rest of the world. Everyone has likes, dislikes, and annoyances that others can relate to. I think this is something that also reminds us that we are human. So this is my first little rant to kick this off.
Southgate is a quiet place. Most of the time. But every other night you will hear entitled teenagers, or young adults racing cars. Turbo mufflers, screeching tyres, blasting
For a long time I have been meaning to do this, and I have finally done it. Every time I come across the idea of creating a blog I am suddenly surrounded by a lot of questions like; What shall I write about? Is this worth sharing? Is this relevent? Who would read this? And then it becomes so mind-boggling that I end up not doing it at all.
It is mainly because I am too busy doing the more important things: Reading, Writing and Drawing. The things I actually enjoy and care ab
