Sports Break

It is mid February so that means that tomorrow the Scott Tournament of Hearts (Canadian Women's Curling) begins which is for me the start of a month of sports watching,  Which also means less work gets done on downstairs project aka Fractal

and more gets done on upstairs project which is making it's debut in the blog, I am currently working on the Canada 150 logo, pattern designed by the wonderful Make it Pink and this lovely thing will become my pillow entry for the fair this year.

As for what I watched.

Critical Role, Talks Machina and Table Top

Shadowhunters S02 E05-07

Hidden Figures - I had really been looking forward to this one and it didn’t disappoint, it is about the African American female mathematicians and engineers at NASA in the 60’s. I know it’s been getting a lot of the awards this year, they are well deserved.

The Wolverine - This one was so much better than the first Wolverine movie, I like that they brought it to Japan as that is such an important part of the comics mythology. However Japan did look suspiciously like Vancouver

The Phoenix Incident - One of these “found footage” shaky cam fake documentary things that take a real incident and make it about aliens,  The fun of this one is that almost all the people in it  are voice actors, two (Travis Willingham and Liam O’Brian) are also from Critical Role which is obviously an obsession of mine, and two others  have also been on table top.  That’s the only reason I watched this, but it was amusing so not a waste of time, but I wouldn’t spend actual money on this.

Earthquake - This big budget disaster movie from 1974 has a stellar cast, but quite honestly it doesn’t take to long to start rooting their death.  There isn’t a likable character in this movie, on the other hand the disaster itself is quite satisfying and has pretty good special effects for the time.

Dirty Dancing - Another iconic 80’s movie, what can I say I was a teenager in the 80’s all the iconic 80’s movies are going to show up in this list sooner or later.  This one is out of order because my VHS copy was stolen and I just found the DVD dead cheap---finally.

Attack on Titan: The Movie, Parts 1&2 - I got these for Christmas, they are the live action version of the anime I watch a while ago, well done, especially the titans and while lacking the in depth storyline of the anime, still a good dystopian movie.


  1. Fractal is looking great, I hope you'll still get a few stitches in here and there, but I'm also looking forward to progress on that Canada logo!
    Hidden Figures really was a great movies, both with its strong message but also with such lovable characters, I'll be definitely getting this one on BR once it comes out!

    1. I enjoyed Hidden Figures so much I picked up the book as well, Which is the second NASA related book for this year, as I read Chris Hadfield's autobiography over New Year's
