Remnants & Relics. Buttonhole *Special* Feature

Welcome dear reader to Remnants & Relics, the first in an ongoing series of features looking back at various aspects of yesterday's video games. This series is one that I'd hoped to kick off many months ago, but I just haven't had the time to do it justice, until now. So consider this your opportunity to put on your best pair or rose-tinted glasses, open up a luke-warm can of clichés and prepare to hop aboard the way-back-machine.... It came from beyond two dimensions! -A Look Back at Isometric Gaming-

ACMI Day Tripper

Welcome Buttonhole readers to another feature that is so choc-full of goodness that I've divided it into several sections. The top half is about the Indy video games showcased at ACMI. The bottom half is about the Pixar exhibit. It's ridiculously long and all terribly interesting to read, so you may as well read it in two halves, or just the parts that interest you. After reading about the ACMI exhibits on their website and getting more than a little excited, I decided to make the perilous trek to inner Melbourne. With time on my side and money stuffed in my pocket I ventured forth to the train station. Once on board I passed the time by staring out the window, reading a volume of Dark Horse's Concrete and snacking on tasty fruit. Arriving at Flinders St, I wandered around until inevitably finding my way out of the rat-maze like station.

Classic Comic-book Review. Kraven's Last Hunt

"Here lies Spider-Man - Slain by the Hunter" So reads the grave of one of histories greatest superheros. "But he's not dead, is he? What happened to everyone's favourite web-slinger? Spidey seems to be alive and well now, what with his three movie deal and a string of monthly Marvel comic-book titles to his name, so why was he buried six feet under? The year is 1987. The company is Marvel. The character is Sergei Kravinov also known as 'Kraven the Hunter.' Back in the 60's Stan and Steve (Lee and Ditko, respectively) churned out a heap of cool villains for the title "Amazing Spider-Man." Doctor Octopus, The Cham

MuseLive Review: Muse
At Festival Hall, Melbourne 8-9-04

by Fazz
Festival Hall in Melbourne isn’t known as a particularly great live venue by any stretch of the imagination, so why do booking agents keep running shows there? Maybe it’s because it’s the nice halfway between some club like the Hi-Fi bar or the Palace and the upscale arenas. Wednesday the 8th of September, 2004 brought one of my all-time favorite bands back to Australia; Muse. When I got the tickets I was a little disappointed that it would be held at Festival Hall, due to its poor visibility and atrocious acoustics. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Wednesday rolled around and myself, my girlfriend and a couple of friends piled into the car and headed off to Dudley St. West Melbourne for what would prove to be a true moment in concert history. After fiddling around in the li... Read On
Korn- Deuce
Music DVD. It goes right off the KoB!

by Fazz
“Yo, This is the new KoRn Video, Check it out!” yells KoRn’s frontman Jonathon Davis as you play the main title of this excellent DVD. KoRn’s “Deuce” is truly a masterpiece of the DVD format. It blends an imaginative and extremely complex menu systems with two full-length feature videos and innumerable easter-egg bonus features seamlessly into what some have described as possibly the best music DVD to date. ...

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Live at Slane Castle
Music Dvd Review. Chili served Irish style

by Mugwai
The Red Hot Hot Chili Peppers have always been a band that I’ve held in high regard, even in their metamorphism from rapid fire funk to their later deeper and mellower creations. Unfortunately they have also had some rather dubious live performances, some where Anthony Kiedes’s vocals are totally out of key and the mixes sound like the sound engineer smoked some serious angel dust and longed for the next friggin’ Eagles tour. ...

Foo Fighters- Everywhere But Home
Music Dvd Review. What Kung Foo Dat?

by Fazz
“All my Life I’ve been Searching for Something…” The opening line of the opening track of Dave Grohl and Gang’s latest offering. I was lucky enough to see the Foo Fighters live as part of their “One by One” tour, and all those wonderful memories came flooding back when I popped this DVD into the player. ... Read On

ToonlogoMusic Quote of the Month

"They say, 'Dylan never talks.' What the hell is there to say? That's not why an artist is in front of people."

Bob Dylan, referring to his live shows, from an interview with Rolling Stone. (Yeah, I know I use a lot of Dylan quotes. What can I say? I just dig the guy!)

Only Yesterday. Anime Review

The problem with having favourite films is that every time I watch another Studio Ghibli film it becomes my new favourite. It kind of renders the word 'favourite' meaningless when every Studio Ghibli film takes my breath away. Still, I can't complain about being thoroughly entertained by this whimsical and insightful film, "Only Yesterday". This gem was directed by Isao Takahata, well known for his anime film Grave of the Fireflies. Although Only Yesterday is a light hearted film that ambles along at a leisurely pace, it still manages to explore themes such as love, work, family relationship struggles, following your dreams and country versus city living. In the film, the main character Taeko decides to take a working vacation in the country, getting away from her office bound job and unexpectedly starts t

Speed Grapher V1. Anime Review

Well, "I don't like it" was my initial feeling when viewing this Anime for the first time. Subsequent viewings haven't changed my views a great deal. Nothing really stands out as being absolute shit but it seems that this series tries too hard. It's almost like they were more interested in creating something 'edgy' and confronting but sadly forgot to include an even remotely palatable story. The hero of this particular piece is a bloke called Tatsumi Saiga. Tatsumi is a photographer and a veteran war journalist for whom taking photos has become somewhat of a fetish. Although he seems to have become jaded - nothing is worth wasting his film on - that is, at least until he stumbles across an exclusive club for the mega rich
