Action Woman -Post 35

I'm sorry  for not posting for a while but had pc problems lately -needed a rest to -now addicted to Fallout4 as this post testifies -really good stuff- so much to do -2 iconic characters from the game (wanted to feature Curie too but youtubes been a ass) starting with Piper -most obvious choice for this blog  with her big red trenchcoat -(I'm about level 30  now so hope she's not from institute or a synth or anything ) she's a real cutie -but I have my suspicions (seems to be a retelling of War of Indepence but in a post nuclear war world -where rock n roll seemed to be snuffed out too in it's infancy) but the give away is the red coat (which is the colour the Brits wore whilst fighting the Americans) I could be totally wrong -much more of the story to go -hopefully my suspicions are wrong )
A few cosplay Pipers...


What can be more fun than taking out Robots/Zombies //Mutants/ Gunners and Raider Scum (almost feel sorry for these guys now-almost )  with a Jet powered Sledgehammer -most fond of the greaser girl  look  thats how I deck out my crack squad although not the best protection as Lucas a merchant in the game states"Pretty Don't stop Bullets" but I dunno prefer greaser to raider gear on the female characters at least as everyone seems to wear the same grubby shirt as oppossed to a t-shirt which looks better  -Still searching for Atom Cats gear hope that's soon in the story more leather in this game than both my blogs put together lol -even if it's pixalated
Youtubes been fecking weird -can't embed videos (this is a major drag as that's the reason for the delay of this post ) it may be this new computer or it may be me-but it may mean I can't make vid playlists anymore either :(
 Caits outfit reminds me of the Warriors she has some of the best lines in gaming history lol -  she's  had a shite life up to your character meets her in game -the very definition of fighting Irish - another thing I love about game is that it's set in Boston -even after nuclear fallout seems like I'd feel more at home there than in Blighty .. maybe one day visit.. has a rich history I'll have to investigate lots of references to Hagen which is almost my surname so have to find out more about the city .

Juries still out on Brotherhood of Steel -I love the balloon and the music in those scenes(very John Barry) but they strike me as fascists -overpowered too     have to get Maxsons Battlecoat at some stage in game -but right now gotta keep them on side -lots of fascinating elements to this game a big improvement on the third game which I gave up on as I couldn't get used to to the aiming system  and the fact the dialouge scenes were all written rather than spoken which struck me as old in comparrison to other games of that time but after finnishing this one may go back to it - do wish videos worked may come back and update this post once vids are embeddable again ... for now I'll link my youtube channel seeing as things are all Pete Tong -mainly game footage (kinda fun coming up with these Fallout battles not really for the faint hearted -very violent all though it's cartoon violence really) also handy if you want to see all those video playlists i've made over the years-

 Last post may of not made as much  as sense as I hoped -(unless you're french that is)but it's good sense to wear shades right now (still too hot here in Blighty...not very Autumnal )

"She Lives in a Time of Her Own"-Post 16

1
They could of left  watermark at bottom .. never understood the point of obscuring a image with words.

From hand painted stamp from 1930's.. although original black & white portraits better (but a rubbish size to post here)

Been watching lots of  old flicks on youtube ... heres a gem from 1937 -(english translators nuts dictates dada so worth watching just to see Danielle Darrieux's beauty style and performance as Lydia ..I envy you if you're fluent in  French.


Santa has the Blues! Some un-seasonal French New Wave .. a film about dufflecoats -but Martine's rocks the most... at least the  translator works properly on this one.


What can I say? Berets . big shiny coats and frenchieness just go together so well Michelle Morgan stills from "Le Quai des Brunes" from 1939 which translates as "Port of Sorrows" here's a trailer Interview about that movie subtitls hopefully work-some lovely images . Nice dress. Couldn't feature Port of Sorrow" but did  find this windswept epic  "Stormy Waters" also starring Madeline Renaud...subtitles provide more surrealist comedy -guess I'll have to watch this for its filmaking rather than the dialouge ...

You must excuse me as I like to spend time in the 20th Century (kind of miss it sometimes)

"Gimme Indie Rock!" -Post 1


First of a new series of posts - wanted to represent newer bands -already got a punk post "Sheena is a Punk Rocker" but that really concerntrates on the  pioneers from  that era -so I needed a title that could cover more bases so  this Sebadoh tune  is an excellent choice for the title for this new feature p

Promised I'd do a post about Saint Agnes a few weeks ago ..may of posted vids before in playlists on other blogs but in case you missed them I'll post them again -Kittys got great style & can build a decent guitar  - and I love that big bluesy noirish  sound.
 pics from Wildblanket site http://www.wildblanket.com/  
I've said this b4 a great source to find out what's happening around  London ..discovered many an excellent band from Neils site.


Next up a group I featured in September playlist on the main blog.. fave newish band  sonically and aesthetically  The Flytraps- theres been a few line ups including a Death Valley Girl ..I think she's been replaced by a dude in a gimp mask lol


I'm bound to feature more vids from The Flytraps in future playlists look out for them.
