Since I’ll be moving into a unit/apartment soon I thought it was probably a good idea to converse as much space as possible. To this end, I thought I might start buying movies digitally from here on out, unless it’s something like the Marvel films that I really want a physical copy of.
To see what the price difference between physical movies and digital is, I decided to use the last movie I bought, the Lego Movie on DVD from Big W where it cost me $15, as a guide.
The first place I checked out way the Apple Store. You can buy the Lego Movie there for…$25? 0_o
Ok, let’s try Google Play. $20. 0_0
So…both digital version of Lego Movie are actually MORE expensive than buying a physical copy.
How the hell can a digital version of a film - which require no packaging, no delivery from manufacturer to store, no sales people to put it through the register, no shelf space, no packing/ unpacking at the store warehouse and a dozen other things - cost MORE than the copy which does require all that stuff?
And they wonder why Australians’ don’t use legal downloading services.Stupid!
The Human Torch actor explains that in the franchise reboot, “We’re more or less a bunch of kids that had an accident and we have disabilities now that we have to cope with.”
If they’re gonna do this why even bother having the FF licence? I mean, seriously, what’s the point if it’s going to be THIS removed from the source material.
And MAN and I sick of seeing stories about “person with special abilities wants to be normal and tries to hide them but then realizes they need to use said abilities for the greater good.” YAAAAAAAWWWWNNN!

While its sad to see Gail leave, I’m really looking forward to the new Batgirl team. The art especially looks awesome!
Naturally, I’m a kinda shy person, especially when it comes to meeting new people. Now that I’m single my friends were worried that I wouldn’t go out as I’d have no one to go with, that I’d become a hermit and simply stay home with my books. Well, luckily I’ve found a regular social outing that I’m really looking forward to; Friday Night Magic.
As I mentioned in my previous post I bought my first Magic: The Gathering deck recently. Well, tonight I went to my first Magic event at a games store not too far from home. I went to see what the scene was like, how I enjoyed playing against others and what those folks were like. Happily, I had a lot of fun.
If you’ve ever played Magic you’ll know how involved it is. As you could imagine I experienced something of an information overload, even though I tried to study the rules before tonight. I forgot rules and moves, was confused at times and felt my brain hurting. But the other players were incredibly welcoming and generous. Everyone I played was understanding of my noob-ness and no one seemed to be bothered when I messed things up.
I really enjoyed the night, even though I know that I’ve a long way to go before I’m even a slight challenge to the other people there - I got slaughtered most of the time - so I’ll certainly be going back.
Guess I’m can add Magic to my geek resume. ^_^
My very first Magic: The Gathering deck. Can not wait to start playing! #MTG

Realised I hadn’t shared my photos from this year’s Supanova convention in Sydney yet. So here’s some photos of me cosplaying Doctor Strange, my favourite Marvel character, with Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Harley Quinn, Zatanna, Arwen, Jessica Rabbit, two of my school students who also attended the con, and Dragon Age’s Morrigan.
