what is the Global Intergrated Joint Operating Entity?

"G.I. Joe is now a Brussels-based outfit that stands for Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, an international co-ed force of operatives who use hi-tech equipment to battle Cobra, an evil organization headed by a double-crossing Scottish arms dealer. The property is closer in tone to X-Men and James Bond than a war film."

"Although the new G.I. Joe team will be international in scope, don't expect Joe's British counterpart Action Man to be included after all. IESB.net reports, "Looks like he will be gone, this new script is set to be 100% GI Joe, it will revolve around the characters we all grew up with fighting Cobra, Destro, the Baroness and Storm Shadow. When do they expect to have this new script ready? Six to eight weeks. Pre-production is expected to start by October-November and production to start early '08." = what? no Cobra Commander?

and so the G.I.Joe Movie is a GO

and so the G.I.Joe movie is a GO! with director Stephen Sommers (Van Helsing, The Mummy) helming this live-action adaptation (or re-invention?) of popular 80's cartoon based on Hasbro's military figures, and an obvious "rekindled" franchise to come (hopefully for the powers-that-be, i reckon LOL) ... and of coz i hadda do a quickie-bash for good ol'Joe and his buddy, Action Man, innit? :p

read more via CBR / via HollywoodReporter and this interesting article on AdvertisingAge; which discusses the relevance and theories of G.I.Joe's existence in relation to current real-world-scenario.

i'll just be happy if they'd come out with more new figures and toys ... *heh*

Codename: Maqeenic (WIP)

experimenting a bit more with paints and weathering ... tis always hard(er) when the lack of experience and skills hamper the execution of what i really want to achieve ... slowly but surely, i reckon? *heh*

seventh month

and so today's the start of what we local Chinese call; "Seventh Month" or "The Hungry Ghost Festival" (鬼月), in which the Gates of Hell are opened, and where ghosts and spirits, including those of the deceased ancestors, come out from the lower world to visit mortal earth ...
which also means a lunar month-long period of burnt paper hell money ashes littering the sidewalks, and of fragrant joss and incense filling the air, where temporary street-side Wayang stages are set-up and Getai (歌台) fill the heartland atmos with music and songs, all to entertain and appease the spirits ... **a note to anyone attending these "musical events": if you see the amidst the thronging crowds and wonder why no one ever seats in the first / front empty row? do not attempt to sit on them - becoz they have been "reserved" for the spirits :p /// READ MORE HERE


Codename: RT.01 (WIP)

waiting for the paint to dry, with more weathering and battle-scars to come ... :)

Happy Friday the 13th (2007)
