West World

I saw this film when I was kid snuggled between Mum and Dad on the old couch with the tatty orange spread. The 70's tv advertising gave way to the feature film and it then preceded to scare 5 kinds of crap out of me. Was it the unrelenting cold stare of Yul? The mindless violence and sex the guests participated in? The nihilistic way the tables were turned? The blood's highly unusual shade of bright red? Whatever it was, I didn't own a computer until I was 21.

Webcomic - Bubblewrap

When Dan Beeston from Brisbane's Impro Mafia troupe first asked me if I was interested in being part of a webcomic engine he was creating I laughed, patted his fuzzy head and said "sure...sure Dan...I'll write for your crazy machine" and went back to drinking my cocktail (it was a Smirnoff Smug with a Twist of Disbelief)

Well a year went by I'd only heard whispers and wild rumours. Nobody had seen Dan in some time and we'd all but given up hope - and our lemon supplies were running low as well.... When suddenly he appeared - ragged and smelling of basement and eardust but triumphant none the less.

I guess I had to start knuckling down and churning out some ideas........

Ladies and Gentlemen - the online sensation that is "Bubblewrap"

My characters start about a week in.
