Wicked Cool Curves — a Kickstarter for a friend of mine


Hey all, Jeff here, begging your pardon for a bit of non-HeroMachine-related promotion on behalf of a friend of mine. Andrea Glockner is launching a Kickstarter today for awesome, custom-made workout gear for every body. Called "Wicked Cool Curves", it's fun, colorful clothing for life, designed to fit and flatter curvy and plus-size bodies in a size-inclusive and body positive manner.

It seems like plus-size clothes are designed to be boring on purpose, but Andrea  has finally brought some color, flair, and pizzazz to them with her custom-colored, super comfortable line.

Given the passion of this community for customizing their creativity, I thought this was a perfect product to bring to you all. I hope you'll spread the word and make a contribution of even $1 (the sheer number of donors really helps boost her up the Kickstarter charts even for just that one sawbuck).

Thanks for supporting a like-minded creative person!

Ok, so, just to let you all know I'm going to try my hardest to resist singing songs from The Little Mermaid during this review, even though the episode title really makes me want to. And with that out of the way, let's dive in. Pun intended.

JReviews: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 2- The Witch’s Familiar

Hello, hey, yeah, sorry, shoulda had this up yesterday and all that, but sorta got side tracked by a little thing called The Rugby World Cup (I'm English and it was the England Wales game, kinda a big thing you know). Anyway, that's all done with, got a review, here it is.

JReviews: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 1- The Magicians Apprentice

So, a new series of Doctor Who has begun. And we all know what that means. I am back again to ramble on in a timer-wimmy wibbley-wobbley fashion about the episodes. And due to the fact that I don't have a TARDIS of my own, I guess that the beginning is the only place we can really start.

Oh and by the way, River Song alert (a.k.a SPOILERS BELOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not that River Song was in this episode, because that wouldn't be true. Anyway, getting on with it).

Kaldath’s Corner: Duane Metal – Learning Japanese With Babymetal

Last week I was laid up in bed with both a very bad cold and some physical injuries which left me very bored! Of course when bored like that I did what I normal do and turned to the internet for entertainment and I stumbled upon a youtube channel that intrigued me. You See I am a huge fan of the Japanese Kawaii Metal group Babymetal, and I also have a desire to learn the Japanese language and this Channel hit on both those desires within me. The Channel name is Duane Metal and he breaks down the lyrics of Babymetal songs in order to teach your the Japanese Language.


Now This channel is not going to teach your fluent Japanese but it is certainly a fun way to get your feet wet and it also helped me understand the lyrics to my favorite Groups songs better! A win, win in my book. So if you are interested in learning Japanese, like Babymetal or both I suggest you give this guy a shot!
