Globenfeld - Automatic self-winding watch... mostly ;)

Image
Based on a free product delivered for review purposes, this review highlights a Globenfeld self-winding Automatic watch. Watch is Rose Gold which is surprisingly manly when worn with office attire. The color grew on me quickly. Is the same basic size and shape as the men’s Fossil watch I have worn for years.
Video was recorded the day the watch was received with a 30ish day later voice over.
This watch is self winding, but can be manually wound with a simple turn of the crown knob. Internal ‘skeleton’ view of the interior through rear panel. Watch dials- 24 hour clock, day by quarter.
Watch keeps time very well but may require periodic time checks if you do not walk enough to retain strong wind. I found it is just easier to give it a manual winding bump nightly when I remove the watch for the night.
After a solid review time frame, this device proves to be very high quality for the price point it is sold at.

Europe Comic’s Clara: A beautiful but sad story

Image
This is a beautiful book.
I was lucky to be allowed a digital review copy of Europe Comics’ Clara. . Have you read Clara? What was your take?
From my POV It is hard to say which was more impacting, the story by Christophe Lemoine or the beautiful art by Cécile. As described openly on the back of the book, Clara has a bitter/sweet story. Clara’s best friend is her mother, but her mother forgot her birthday. It wasn’t on purpose, their house was stressed because Clara’s mother has been diagnosed with a horrible illness and is dying.
The story of Clara follows her on a confused journey of pain and loss, shallow understanding of the universe and meddling emotional gymnastics.

Coming in at just about 56 pages, there is not a lot of room for spoilers, so we will refrain from full disclosure details. I would absolutely suggest hunting a copy of this down and reading it.

Weaponized: I would say it is heavy handed, but that hand is a penis

Image
Let’s pretend Zac Thompson’s book ‘Weaponized’ = cookies. Based on the synopsis, I thought ‘these are going to be some pretty good cookies!’ But something went horribly wrong! What? Too many ingredients.

Flour, eggs, milk, salt, baking powder, water, oil, chocolate chips, raw beef, ketchup, chopped prunes, used contraception, snake venom, baby aspirin, cat vomit, and viagra. Under-baked on a open half dictionary covered in lard and spritzed lovingly with a potpourri essence of airbourne phallic juices..
These are not cookies I enjoyed.
Weaponized tried too hard. Here are it’s actual ingredients: Dysptopian universe, with the 1970’s recent enough to be mentioned; The Sexwars which caused trouble but are never explained; Outlawed fornication (but page 3 tells you it is a fraud); Skeleton warriors who fail to be interesting; Bone gun and their references always mentioning ‘bone bullets’; Biomechanical buildings which didn’t exist until after people go into veiny/anus/vagina subtunnels; Muta…

Image

Lets start this off right with some props to Michael Snead for a refreshing new comic. This is seriously great. you should follow him on Instagram and get some looks under the covers as he works on his various projects... https://www.instagram.com/snead_doodles/

Harold and the Monster is pretty great. First page was published in October 2017, and is 26 pages deep as of this video post. Harold is a griping and depressed dude who owns his own struggling coffee shop. at the end of a busy work day, he finds himself excreted from the belly of a strange green mucus monster, which then slurps itself down his throat before passing out.

Harold wakes the next day confused with concerned family over his bed.

What will happen next? Dunno. but i will add this to my watch feed going forward and you should expect more update on Harold via …

Ndemic Creations, Plague Inc - Review and Gameplay

Image
This is a dark game but enjoyable.

What are your thoughts? Is this simply a crowd sourced scenario and statistics tool that someone is capitalizing on via big data?

A couple years back, I was introduced to this game on IOS.. it had a freemode and that was the only real requirement for me to download it and give it a shot. It turns out to be one of the longest running games to live on my phone, as well as one of the most disturbing.

Plague Inc is a simple premise. To be ‘Victorious’, you must murder all of mankind.

In this simulator, there is no evil mastermind.. it is simply a biological element go awry and spreading. Was it sourced in a lab or naturally virulent? Who knows.. it isnt really the point, though there is a definite Enders Game feel to this as you craft the strongest collective elements tigether and scenario the perfect ‘win’

There is some hope (for me at least). I have started playing the game with alternate ‘win’ rules. I destroy humanity to the point of seeming no return, a…

Kill Creek: HEY NETFLIX buy the rights to make this a 10 ep series

Image
Xposted from my Instagram acct
RAISE YOUR HAND if you have read Scott Thomas’s Kill Creek?? Finished reading yesterday and been digesting it.
It took me nearly a month to read this novel (no fault of the work itself). Sick family and company deadlines got in the way of my reading. By way of this slow throughput, I spent the month dwelling on the topics of ghosts and haunted houses (see all the comics i was posted).
For those unfamiliar, Kill Creek centers on a small house in Kansas, cursed from the day it was built when a loving couple was violently murdered for being northerner/freed slave. Since then, strange stories and rumors follow the house, and it has been featured several times as one of he most hanuted places in America.
Cue protagonists.. Four horror authors (of various genre staples) are brought to the house on Halloween to self promote their current projects in a live syndicated web broadcast. Whether they are believers in the supernatural or naysayers, they all sit in the sam…
