Goodbye Edd(sworld)

Eddsworld is one of my favourite things to follow online. I think I first discovered Eddsworld animations on Newgrounds, forgot about it, then rediscovered it many, many months later on NG and also YouTube.

Edd Gould, the creator of basically all things Eddsworld, has a certain style that’s different from other online “entertainers”, if you could call them that. I haven’t been following his stuff from the beginning, but I guess after being a fan and avid follower after three or four years you realise how unique his work is and then tend to appreciate it more. I guess that’s what I enjoyed most about his cartoons and once-weekly comics—unique creativity and plots, fresh jokes, and peculiar-but-ordinary characters. (Anyone that follows me on any of my online sites would have seen me post something about Eddsworld at least once or twice. I’ve even got a link on my links page to the site.)

Some time last year I learned that Edd had leukaemia and had to be hospitalised in order to undergo chemotherapy and other treatments. Because of his hospitalisation he had to sort of put Eddsworld on hiatus, but did manage to release a few more animations, known as “Eddisodes”.

Beached Sperm whale

Sperm whales are the largest toothed whale, and the only whale larger than them is the Blue whale (my personal favourite). The most famous of Sperm whales is Moby Dick and today, another Sperm whale got to have his five minutes of fame, but not for a very good reason.

Earlier today a 13-metre, 27-tonne (one account reports it weighed “more than 30 tonnes”) injured Sperm whale got stranded on a beach in Belgium, most likely as a result of its injury. Unfortunately it died before anyone could attempt to rescue it, and the poor guy became an attraction.

The first image I saw of the whale only showed it’s tail, but the other images I saw once I clicked on the corresponding articles were actually quite gruesome and terribly heartbreaking.

BEACHED SPERM WHALE DRAWS CROWDS.
A 13 metre sperm whale that died on a Belgian beach becomes a point of interest for locals.

One year

This morning I had to go to the RTA to renew my car’s registration, and it occurred to me that I’ve already had my car for a year. A year.

February 1st, 2011

Cherry Bomb aka Reddy

Those who’ve been following my blog for a while might recognise the above photo. It was my Project 365 photo from February 1st last year, the day I got my car. So much has happened between now and then with regards to my car and yet it feels like I only got it a few months ago. Some people reckon it still has its new car smell.

Geek of Narnia

geek

noun
an unfashionable or socially inept person
[with adj.] a person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with the Chronicles of Narnia.

I first read the first book C.S. Lewis wrote from the series—The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe—in primary school, but sometime during high school, I decided I wanted to read the remaining 6 books. I managed to borrow and read all except the seventh book—The Last Battle—from my high school library, and I remember my mum randomly buying books 5 and 6 (The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The SIlver Chair) for me.

In Year 11, we studied imaginary journeys for English (if I can remember correctly), and I used Voyage of the Dawn Treader as one of my texts for my portfolio. I don’t know why, but I went shopping for a new Chronicles of Narnia book around the time I was making my portfolio. It may just have been that I wanted to buy the other 5 books so I could finally read them again, but in the process, I found a large book that combined the seven. The cover boasted of the recently released movie adaption of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (which features a very handsome Peter Pevensie). (When Prince Caspian the movie came out, this book was re-released with a new cover that featured Prince Caspian (played by the handsome Ben Barnes) instead of the White Witch.)

P2

I feel like I’ve neglected this blog a little bit. I’m trying to think of some interesting things that have happened to me lately, but I realised that my life’s been as boring as watching paint dry (has anybody ever done that?).

One slightly exciting thing that has happened, though, is that two weeks ago, today, I got my green P’s!

No, not those peas.

Not those, either. But at least, the little guys look like they’re celebrating with me!
