Marvellous Monday

Hello hello one and all. Following our half birthday, here’s a fab link list for you all.

I plan to start designating regular days for each topic, so you always know when the site updates will be. I’m thinking of Link-Lists Mondays, Picture Posts on Wednesdays and Reviews of Fridays.

Also , a friend at my rp group introduced me to Ogame – a scifi strategy browser game where you run/manage a galactic empire. Usually I can’t get into them (I suck at strategy) but this is actually pretty simple and satisfying. Plus it’s free – huzzah!

Biggest form of procrastination EVER.

Well, aside from writing this blog -haha


Art of the Day

BeastySakura

Another cool artist over at deviantart. i especially love her old lady warrior character Adelheit.

Pokemonย  what happened to you – by Alex Day

I’ve been playing a fair amount fo pokemon recently,a nd thsi tickled me. Ah, I remember red. Loved it. Vintage pokemon FTW.

Hilariously inaccurate..

..knockoff toys

Titanic bot has to be the most awesome knockoff toy EVER. ๐Ÿ˜€

Ogame

Sci-fi Empire browser-based rp

The GM of the guys I (now used)to rp Vampire the Masquerade with showed me this awesome little browser based rp game. I’m usually not a strategist – I’m crap, to put it mildly and have a small attention span – but this is actually very approachable and fun. Check it out ๐Ÿ˜‰


Motivation of the Day


22 most uncomfortable Album Covers

ever

Tee hee – ah unintentionally hilarious album covers. enjoy.

John Nolan Films

A fascinating look behind the scenes at the world of animatronics.

SO TRUE!

The Epic David Mitchell on his soapbox about the phrase ‘i coudl care less’. I knew it wans’t just me who thought this!

So much Pun

Silly and funny visual puns

Some of these are bizarre, some are very clever and some are cringingly awful – but all of them are fun

Scribbler Too

Epic browser Drawing program

I love love love this program.ย  Anyone can make great art. it makes cobwebby lines which look really effective. After playing about with it I made that pic above. Lots of fun andย  a great way to waste a hour or so ๐Ÿ˜€

Music of the Day

Other Side – By Pendulum

I’ve been listening to Pendulum constantly since I discovered that they were playing to Leeds festival this year (so I get to see ’em :D). I bought the new ‘immersion’ album and ‘in silco’ to go with the ‘hold your colour’ album I already had. I’ve got to say that ‘In silco’ is my favourite out of the three. Some real classics there. This is one of my favourites, which literally did not leave my head for a week after I heard it. I think I’ve exorcised it for now…just.

The Video’s pretty epic as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

Action Heroes…

In makeup

Flipping LOL.

Magic Hugs
Comedy troupe

A pretty funny comedy sketch site. Random goodness.

Shopping Spree

Elin Mouldy Art

Utterly bizarre and yet strangly pretty, Elin makes art inspired by kichen and mould and usually embroidered. I’ve got to say that I love it, it’s so usual -haha


Craft Corner

Pokemon 3d beadwork tutorial

Picture Passion

Howdy everyone!

I’m still getting my life together and getting settled, so sorry for the infrequent posts. Here’s a picture post to quench your procrastination thirst.

Once I get back into my groove, i hopefully should start putting out each post regularly – one type fo post per day. So possibly link lists on Mondays, picture passions on Wednesdays and reviews on Fridays. What do you think? I’d love to hear your comments.

But for now, this post will be all rebellious ๐Ÿ˜‰

Enjoy!

Happy Half Birthday!

Guess what?

Check your calendars ladies and gents, what is it?

The 10th you say?

No, more important than that:

The Procrastination Station is 6 months old!

*throws confetti*

Yep, it certainly doesn’t feel like this blog was started six short months ago. It started off as a place for me to keep all the cool stuff I find on the ‘net (because god knows I spend too much time there) , and soon grew into something i love sharing with you all in the hopes of entertaining you. I hope that over the months it improved for you guys as well as I added new features, got organised, and took it more ‘seriously’.

Nothing would make me happier then to know that you guys enjoy your little slice of procrastination.

So happy half-birthday, I hope to keep doing this for years to come.

and remember:

To work is human,

To procrastinate: divine.

After all, even God took a rest on the 7th day…

Review Corner – Sex and the City 2

Name: Sex and the City 2

Genre: Chick flick / comedy-drama

Certificate: 15

DT’s Rating: 8/10

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have a confession to make.

I…….am a girl.

Yeah, no big surprise, the internet’s full of ’em don’tcha know, but nevertheless I usually don’t class myself as a girly girl. I usually cringe at chick-flicks and some rom-coms (though mainly those roms without the coms. Talk about soul destroying boredom), and avoid the soppyness. I like my action movies and action-fantasies, and not only for perving over Hugh Jackman. But there’s something so endearingly feminine about sex in the city, without being boring, which seems to just be a joy to me. It’s pure and utter escapism. And it always makes me smile. Darned if I’m going to apologise for that ๐Ÿ˜‰

Escapism is the name of the game with this movie. Unfortunately I missed the first one, but the sequel easily picks up anew. The girls are older and more settled down. Miranda and Charlotte are mothers and feeling the strain, Carrie is in her marriage with ‘Mr.Big’ going through a rough monotonous patch, and sexy Samantha is facing the horrors of the approaching menopause. It’s completely different to the singleton life of the series, and yet the new problems they face bring aย  new vitality (and in the motherhood case, a new and rather touching critical honesty) to the women’s lives, and the humour is still as sharp and hilarious as ever.

It’s always been a hobby of me and my mates to completely take the piss out of Carrie’s outfits, and boy she does not disappoint. Some (ok, most) are ridiculous – look out for the hat (oh Jesus the hat!) and had us giggling. The rampant fashion materialism is always well offset by her fashion faceplants. The Sex and the City escapism takes on a new level as we travel around the exotic and indulgent location of Abu-Dhabi too for their misadventures, which breathes new life and is a feast for the eyes.

All in all the film was funny, girly, at times silly, with touching moments and some real life messages in there too.

If you love the series you’ll adore this. And it’s a perfect film to curl up to with popcorn and a glass of wine after a crappy day when it comes out on DVD.

Enjoy,

8/10
