Student tips for saving money!

So you're a student. You get around £2000 each term. Yet once the term ends you have NO money left? Here are some Ajiey tips for saving money:

1. Get a Savings account
Savings accounts are very useful as long as you have the discipline to use it. Whether you work, get student loan or both put a set fee or percentage into your savings or ISA account and DON’T TOUCH IT! If you get £1700 student loan, put £500 into the savings account and use the rest to spend. Doesn’t seem like much at first but by the end of your second year you will notice it!

2. Set Budgets
What do you need, when do you need it? For instance when I start the first term I know I will need a monthly Travel card for September, October, November and December, let’s say three since Uni starts around mid-end September (including fresher’s week) and ends around mid-December. So I know I need to budget of £300 to put aside for travel cards. Do this for other things like books, food and even parties.

3. Buy Drinks beforehand!
You going clubbing, buy your wine beforehand at your local Tesco, a £10 drink of wine will get you much tipsier than two £5 Vodka and Cokes from a club. (I promote for a club and am telling you not to buy drinks from clubs; they’re going to kill me). But remember… Drink responsibly ;).

4. Get a Student overdraft
Let’s play a game. The aim of the game is to have an overdraft but NOT go into it. It’s simple but challenging. Make sure to get yourselves that student overdraft service in case of an emergency but apart from that don’t go into it! It’s best to stay out of getting more debts and being minus balance. But it is good to have sometimes we overspend without knowing it, and having an overdraft service allows you to go over, without stinging you with interest.

4. Use the cheaper services your University offers.
The perks of being a student are getting student discounts, and services for much cheaper rates. Be sure to cash in your student discounts wherever you go, even if you think a place doesn’t do student discounts, still ask you might be surprised (Nothing ventured, nothing gained). Your university probably has a Gym. Use that instead of going to the more expensive ones! And milk your student union for all the free stuff they offer. Notepads, Pens, Bags, and even Condoms your student union should have all of those there and for FREE. So just pop in and take some, got a lot of Student Union junk in my room :p. Especially with the Condoms, walk in, take a handful and walk out… Don’t make eye contact with anyone!

6. Be Smart!
Just because you now have £2000 in your bank doesn’t mean you can go out and buy an £100 designer hat (Had a friend that did that) be smart with your money, you might need it later on. Spend it on what you need and treat yourself but don’t go around spending excessively on Clothes, parties and other stuff; you’ll be surprised on how quickly that money can go.

7. Use cheaper retailers
This ties in with the last point, but what annoys me is when people insult Primark. I got a £20 leather coat and a £10 body warmer from there almost 2 years ago, and I still wear them to this day. They are in perfect condition and keep me warm and have even outlasted some coats I got from more expensive shops. Just because the clothes cost less does not necessarily make them less quality. I mostly buy my jeans from Primark too and they look just like the jeans my friend wears which costs over double of what I paid. It’s all about finding the best deals for the same product. Go Camden market and look at their wares, shop at ASDA instead of the more expensive Sainsbury’s.  All this saves money that can be used for something else.
I hope some of this advice helped you.

Supers Prologue: 2

So hey, it’s me again. Here to continue my recount of London after the “Event”.  It took a few weeks but I was eventually able to get my power under control and Blaze (As I call it) whenever I want. At first it would only happen when I was angry or ‘heated up’ (Get it?) but eventually I got it under control.
The first few weeks were by far the weirdest in terms of getting used to everybody getting powers, it was all over the news, TV, Facebook and Twitter (#MyNewAbility) and you can bet the Government capitalised on it quickly. A new tax was declared for everybody that had powers or “Supers” as they started calling them. A flying licence was also put into implementation for all those that could fly, and only those who had permission were allowed to fly and If caught flying without a licence then you could end up paying a huge fine… “Flying in dangerous” they told us “We wouldn’t want accidents happening in the air, therefore only trained professionals will be allowed to fly” made it seem as if it was for our own good, but anyone could tell that it was the Public Transport money they were worried about.
A lot happened during the first few months after this event happened. As you can already guess, a bunch of costumed nerds joined forces and started a Superhero team called “Team Justice”. Essentially it was just a bunch of cosplayers who just wanted to walk up and down the streets dressed up as a Superhero. I thought the trend would die out soon, and it was about to when the first incident arose of a group of villains with abilities tried to rob a Post-Office (I bet you thought I was going to say bank, naah, Banks are too well protected, but a Post-Office is the next best thing) Though the villains had certain powers they were no match for the ever growing army of “Team Justice”. By now Team Justice was quite a big group and they were allowed to establish themselves as a non-profit company with all their profit either going into reinvestment or the Government. In return they were granted flying licences and leave to use their powers as they wished.
The Government also saw that Supers were too strong for the Police in general, especially those without powers; therefore they created the Supers-Police, armed with new technology to help subdue rogue Supers. Ever heard of restraint?  They haven’t, always going in guns blazing to every little problem.  The other month they had a lawsuit against them as they practically blew up a shop chasing down a robber. Nobody was hurt however… well apart from the robber who suffered several broken limbs and was in a coma for two weeks, all because he stole some Basmati Rice.
Though despite the efforts of Team Justice and the Supers-Police, Criminal groups also started popping up everywhere, one of the major ones being the Hood Ratz… a crew in the south-London area that used their abilities to mug and rob unsuspecting travellers. And they’re just one of the groups of criminals out there.
Jeez, I’ve been talking about the world so much I totally forgot the most important part… ME! Soo… what have I been doing since I got an ability… Well I started Uni, and am sharing the upstairs of my older sister’s apartment with Jerome and Jenna (one of my close cousins), Jerome goes to the same uni as me; however Jenna is still in college, we also now take combat classes once a week (Self-Defense, Kung Fu, Muai Thai have become quite popular since the Supers event). There is always work to be done as Supers so we set up a service to use our abilities to gain a bit of extra money, from cleaning cars to being bodyguards.
So guys remember if you need a Super for hire email me @ Blaze553@Hotmail.co.uk with your job and prices.

Rob Reviews: Prometheus

It’s been years since a truly great horror has been made. Paranormal Activity came close to placing itself on the canon, amongst movies such as Rosemary’s Baby, The Shining, and The Thing, but it lacked the compelling characters and exciting plots which make those three so terrifying to watch. So it’s no surprise, then, that so many fans of Alien were (as I myself was) buoyed by the prospect of the Xenomorphic mythology being revived by the man who began the Alien series. Ridley Scott, who, like the genres he made his best work in (Blade Runner and Alien) is in dire need of a great movie to remind us of the artistry and filmmaking craft he (and Sci-Fi and Horror) can bring to audiences. It’s been twelve years since Gladiator, and thirty years since Blade Runner. It’s been even longer since Alien.
So what is Prometheus? Named after the titan of Greek mythology (Prometheus is ancient Greek for ‘Forethinker’) who gave humanity its first technology (fire) Prometheus tries to ask the questions (or at least Scott and screenwriters Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof wanted it to try) about the meaning of life – where did we come from? And how did we come to be? They’ve stated this in interviews and promotional talks. Prometheus is based on the theory that humanity benefited from a ‘Prometheus’ race in its evolution through Earth’s exposure to Alien DNA.  The principal character of Prometheus, Dr Elizabeth Shaw (played by Noomi Rapace), along with her doctor boyfriend Dr Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green), discovers cave paintings around the world which suggest the Prometheus theory.  Funding from the ever-present Weyland corporation (Yes, them. Bells should ring for the Alien fans out there) enables Shaw and Holloway to explore their theory to LV 223, a planet with similar conditions to Earth’s, to find out where mankind came from. Meanwhile, an android named David (Michael Fassbender) and the Weyland representative Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) oversee the expedition. What happens in a horror movie? Things go awry, horrifically so. Prometheus is no exception.
The questions are never asked troubling enough to disturb. I went through the movie without feeling that something profound was being addressed. A movie, interesting it may be on its own has to have a bearing to the current reality of the audience to thoroughly touch them. I didn’t feel that in Prometheus. I did in Alien; it didn’t try to ask those vague questions, ones a toddler can ask, the type of questions so many artists fall for (Terence Malick’s worst movie? The Tree of life. What was its premise? The Origins of Man). Is there any other question so solipsistic, so open to interpretation and superstition? The aim of a movie, essentially, is to convince the audience of something. Why then would a director take on something that cannot be argued importantly?
Dan O’Bannon’s screenplay for Alien was based on the artwork of the Dutch Surrealist H.R. Giger, master of the grotesque. He found the artwork sexually horrific, and wanted to create a monster which would conjure up the disgusting nature of rape, of sexuality gone wrong. The history of the first Alien film is like the history of a soft-core Porn film; the eggs of the iconic facehuggers originally opened into two flaps, instead of the flower like four. Twentieth Century Fox ordered Scott’s team to change the bi-segmented, obviously vaginal egg opening to the quadruple-segmented organism. At the British censoring committee the reason given for the 18+ rating of the movie was not the violence or the horror of the movie. It was due to the movie being seen as too sexual for younger people. The connotations of rape are evident in the design of the alien and the script. The facehugger literally ‘rapes’ the face, forcibly impregnating the Alien’s future host, and the victim dies horrifically in the trauma of the ‘childbirth’ of a phallic-shaped Alien which bursts through the chest. Android Ash speaks with near sexual love of the murderous adult alien. If questions about sex aren’t raised in Alien, it certainly gives people the shits about unprotected intercourse, 
Alien: Facehugger
But the visceral is dumped in Prometheus. Instead, we get a comparatively dry movie without the disgust of the original Ridley movie. Dan O’Bannon is dead, and the writers of such illustrious creations as Lost (Lindelof), flagship for all things ridiculous, and The Darkest Hour (Spaihts), a movie lucky enough to get 11% at rotten tomatoes, are at the wheel. Ridley could have got vastly superior screenwriters for such an ambitious project. What about Alex Garland, writer of Danny Boyle’s Sunshine? Hell, Duncan Jones and Nathan Parker from Moon? A Ridley Sci-Fi movie should have received more respect than it did, and Scott should have had more self-respect. Or was it studio pressure? Either way, the screenplay doesn’t add up. The more I think about this movie I find more flaws, plot holes and character inconsistencies. The continuity errors alone are stupefying (I’ve also set a mini-gauntlet for you readers. I’m not going to reveal them for the sake of spoiler-prevention, so you’ll you’ll have to find them for yourself). After the movie finished I left the cinema disappointed. Now I think it’s a miracle Prometheus in its current form got made. I bet its screenplay looks like a badly sewn patchwork of first drafts, written by more than the two writers of Spaihts and Lindelof. Were it not for the excellent cast and the special effects, we’d have a movie on our hands that’d rival the calamity of Godzilla (1998).
Ridley’s direction in Prometheus has nothing of the claustrophobic intensity of Alien; it’s pretty standard horror-fare here. Michael Fassbender is the best actor by far. As David, he has the chilly exterior of a machine, but there is a childlike yearning for something more substantial in his dealings with the other human characters and his involvement in the Prometheus project. One of the opening scenes in the movie -very well done (one of the few) - gives so much potential for the character, and gives so much for Fassbender. He doesn’t waste, but he, like everyone else in Prometheus gets dogged down by the shoddy craftsmanship of Lindelof and Spaihts. Elizabeth Shaw is a nonentity. However much the writers and Scott insist audiences will conclude Ripley’s inevitable tepid reincarnation arrives in Noomi Rapace’s character. She’s a bit weak here though. But again this is down to the writing. Too many times we are reminded of the main flaw in so many modern horror movies. We even have stupid-character syndrome as a common affliction. It’s the kind where horror-fodder for teenagers walks into a clearly dangerous situation with the reckless oblivion suggestive of Harry and Lloyd in Dumb and Dumber.
Does Ridley get his great movie? Do the genres of Sci-Fi and Horror get their much needed revitalisation? No. A little more effort and the thing could have taken off. Just fire those damn screenwriters.

Supers Prologue: Part 1

So… Where do I begin? 

      My name is Luke… Though a lot of people call me Blaze, a shortened version of my online ID Blaze553, I’m 18, currently at university… I’m single… What more is there to say? Oh yeah! I can set my body on fire!
      Haven’t always been able to do the last one, happened roughly a year ago, was having an argument with my sister, got angry and Boom! I was on fire. It felt… normal. Didn’t even know I was on fire until my sister screamed ‘YOU’RE ON FIRE’ and I looked down at my hands to discover that she was right. 
      I did what any normal person would do in that situation… Ran around screaming ‘I’M ON FIRE…” Almost set the whole house on fire but my sister was able to get the hose in time and soaked the whole house before it got too bad. 
      Seems I wasn’t the only one, the talk of the town was ‘look what I can do!’ and the things I saw that morning made me question my sanity. One man grabbed his wife and floated a few feet into the air, another was casually teleporting as opposed to walking, seems he couldn’t teleport very far however, but it was still weird. And things didn’t get any better once I reached College.
I met up with Jerome as soon as I got into college, or as I like to call him ‘The Brute’. Jerome is a current roommate of mine and one of my closest friends; he was also the biggest guy in our class, and loves to train every muscle in his body except the one in his head, seriously… If he isn’t in the Gym he’s either eating or sleeping. 
      He had nothing new to say… Squat this, squat that, bench press 700kg bla bla bla…. ‘I’ve heard it all before’ I told him, but that day he gave me a serious look as if I was missing something. He repeated 700kg and I asked him how much that weighed when he replied that it was MUCH more than he or any human should be able to lift. I trusted him on that. Though he might not know much about world affairs or history but when it came to the physics of the human body he was Einstein.
So he recounted to me the experience of this morning and how he noticed that he could run faster and jump a hell of a lot higher than humans were supposed to.  He also had the same experience as me that morning, watching people as they did things that defied logic. 
      So the conclusion was that everybody was getting strange powers. But the question was...
What caused all of this?

To be continued...

Supers the Prologue series...

     Though I may be getting ahead of myself here and we haven't even started on the comic yet, I feel that we need to get the Supers ball rolling. So I have created a prologue from Blaze's point of veiw which takes place before the Supers series begins. The first part of the prologue should be out around this weekend (Probably friday or saturday) and should give you some insight into the Supers world before the actual series begins. I hope you enjoy.

Ajiey Blogs 2 + Dango Soup 4: MMOChoice

This is a 2-in-1 Post today as I have left it too long without doing a blog on the MCM Expo which happened a Week ago. Also have page 4 of Dango Soup as well for those of you who enjoy Dango Soup. So firstly there are a couple of things I want to address in this Blog. 

1. MCM Expo
So the MCM Expo/ London Comic-Con was last weekend, ranging from Friday, Saturday and Sunday and I couldn't have asked for a better 20th Birthday (Saturday 26th of may). It was one of the most craziest-fun day's I've had in a long time!
   It was my first event in general that I was promoting my work and have never done it before. Despite how prepared I thought I was on Friday, it turned out nothing could have prepared me for my first expo. I showed up with a few flyers and few copies of Fantasy World while others near me had full-fledged stalls and was also next to the Adsf/ Eddsworld stalls. So yeah I felt like a sheep surrounded by lions. 
   After my first day with only 1 Sale overall, I was doubting the rest of the weekend, despite my new friends around me telling me that Friday doesn't really get you any Sales. After Fridays fail I decided to come back on Saturday with the same copies I had on Friday and was totally taken by surprise at what Saturday would bring.
   By about 1:00 on Saturday we were nearly sold out of Fantasy World copies and had to get my mum to restock me. Along with a whole batch of flyer's and by the end of the day we had only 10 copies left. 
   From what people told me about Sunday, I was doubting that I would make that many sales on that day too but I brought the rest of my Fantasy World stock from home just in case (As I learnt from Saturday, always better to have too much than too little). And to our surprise... By the end of the day we had sold out.
   Overall I'm really happy about this as my first expo and I didn't think people would be that responsive to Fantasy World... But It seems I gathered quite a few FW fans :). And would like to say THANK YOU to all the wonderful people I met at the Expo... You know who you are, you helped make my first Expo and my Birthday AWESOME and one of the best birthdays I've had in a long time... A Special thanks to Ajiey Media's Sarkazz (John King) and Mo (Mohammed Hussain) who helped me throughout the weekend... Couldn't have done nearly as well without you.

2. Fantasy World
After the positive response and demand for it at the MCM Expo I have been inspired to get on with developing the continuation of the story (Chapters 2,3,4 etc). However as you know, I don't do the art for Fantasy World and instead employ an artist to do the work, Which can be 1... Expensive and 2...Quite hard. The initial stages of finding an artist and then being abe to convince them into agreeing with your budget can be quite hard. Setting up a Business with a Student Loan budget is very taxing. Whereas some students are broke because they spend too much on Drinking, Clothes and partying... I'm broke because I'm spending too much on developing comics, Ajiey Media promotion, OH... and Food... I love Food :). Shows as much, it's Saturday night and I'm at home writing this blog instead of out with my friends partying at Flagz! But then again I've been to two parties this week, three would've been overdoing it... How did I get sidetracked... Anyway as I was saying, I am hoping to get the next chapter (at least) out by the next expo. But it's up to if I find an artist within my budget to work with in time.
3. Dystopia: The Telepath
Even if it's bad news and Fantasy World isn't out by the next expo... Don't worry as Dystopia: The Telepath chapter 1 will be out by then. Dystopia: The Telepath is another comic series primarily written by Darasimi Makinde. If you wish to learn more about it, read some of the background HERE on the Wikia. It takes a more serious tone than the comedy-based Fantasy World but it is sure to make you want to read more!

4. MORE Content?!?
Here at Ajiey Media we always strive to get new and interesting content and now that University isn't holding me back I will be able to max out Ajiey Media this summer. Which means... Yes... MORE CONTENT! From Dango Soup, to Comedy skit videos, Short stories... Longer stories and the works :). So stay on the site to keep updated. We also hope to be moving to a better site soon. This site has served its purpose well and good but it seems that we need more.

5. Dango Soup: MMOChoice
Now what you've all been waiting for... This weeks Dango Soup (Though this ain't a weekly thing!). So it's a dilemma I've had since the beginning of the holiday. Though I probably won't have time to play them properly, it's something nice to spend an hour on now and again.

Rob Reviews: The Dictator

This is Sacha Baron Cohen’s fourth film in which he is the driving force behind its creation; the movies he’s had the greatest success with have been the one where he’s had the most creative control.  Before The Dictator there was Ali G Indahouse, Borat and Brüno. It was Borat which made Baron Cohen a superstar and earned him critical praise for his innocently misogynist, racist and homophobic Kazakh journalist. Brüno was similar in terms of controversy and praise. Both films follow a similar form; both are about reporters who travel to America to seek their dreams whilst the fictional characters encountering real life situations and people. The Dictator is a more conventional movie in the style of the Ali G film. Ali G Indahouse failed, and for many of the same reasons The Dictator fails too.

Admiral-General Aladeen (SBC) is the ruler of the fictional North African country Wadiya. He indulges in classic dictator behaviour and vices; he has armies of female bodyguards (Gaddafi), aspirations to head a nuclear state (Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-il, Saddam), and sits on some major fraction of the world’s oil supply (Ahmadinejad, Saddam, everyone in the Middle East who was kicked out by the Arab Spring.) Oh, and hands out death sentences like… Aladeen is manipulated into journeying to the U.S. to give a speech to the U.N., where he is kidnapped and supplanted by an Aladeen lookalike (SBC again). After managing to escape from his captors Aladeen ends up working in a communal store run by a passionate feminist (Anna Faris) whilst he tries to wrest back his dictatorship from the soon to be democratised Wadiya. 

One of the main draws of Borat and Brüno was its air of unpredictability and danger. Who knows what’s going to happen when a Kazakh reporter sings his national anthem in the tune of The Star Spangled Banner to a crowd of rednecks in Bible belt America? Who knows what’s going to happen when a gay Austrian fashion reporter tells the leader of the West Bank’s Al-aqsa’s Matyr Brigade that Bin Laden looks like a “homeless Santa”? The crudity of the jokes works well here because of the collision of opposites. When it’s a feature length movie without such instances Baron-Cohen loses his brilliance and niche. The same thing was lost in Ali G’s transition from interviews and sketches to a feature length film. The jokes in The Dictator are laborious and underwritten. Painful is a scene in a helicopter where references to 9/11 are made. The character of Aladeen is too much like Borat as well. Close your eyes during his exchanges with Anna Faris’ character and the accents of Borat and Aladeen are indistinguishable. Faris herself is given barely anything to work on; her character is just a butt of many of the script’s jokes. Ben Kingsley has even less.
It’s depressing how much the great comedian is off form here. What matters is not the controversy over its themes and ideas, but the movie’s quality. The Dictator is a dud.

Dango Soup: Pg1

  PREVIOUS                                                                            NEXT

Ever wondered where I got the small characters with the straight eyes from? Well this webcomic explains where the original idea... originated. The Dango Daikazoku theme from Clannad (Still one of my favourite songs to this date), It's such a cute and simple theme with a relaxing-ish melody... I decided to try doing Dango-ish character of me... Back when this was just a blog for myself. As more people started joining me I ended up doing Dango characters for them to keep in with the theme.

P.s was also where I got the idea for the the Ajiey Theme

Avengers Review!

At first I was sceptical even though everybody I knew was telling me how amazing the movie was.

I seem to remember a similar situation last year where everyone was going on about the Xmen: First Class movie and when I saw that movie I was terribly disappointed! 


But I might get onto that in another post. So I had low hopes for the movie going in, however I kept an open mind as I usually do when going to see movies. The movie started off well and continued getting better as it went along. 
The Plot was very basic however "Evil Villain threatens the world, group of heroes join up to beat him" though everything else was great. The movie had enough jokes to be classified as a comedy and most of which had the cinema roaring in laughter... Especially a certain scene towards the end involving Hulk and Loki. The characters and character development was another thing I also liked. Previously hating Iron Man (Never watched the movies as the Iron Man cartoon I watched when I was a kid was awful, never really gave him a chance after that), after I saw the Avengers he become one of my favourite heroes... I even had to go back and watch both the Iron Man movies to get a better foundation on his back story.
Though the movie did have a very simple plot, how the plot was played out was really good I find, as along with their fight against their enemy there are also tensions growing between the heroes which adds quite a lot to the story and makes out for some very funny situations.

Overall I'd give it a solid 8.5 out of 10 it's been the best movie I've seen for a very long time and would say it's a must watch! Its 3D effects are also done quite well if you don't mind paying the extra money. OH and definitely wait until the end of the credits there's something extra you might want to see.

The Angel X sample on kindle has gone down to 77p (The lowest Kindle allows it to go so get a copy now)

Ajiey Blog: Shaman King - New Manga Series!!

Shaman King is one of those shows I grew up watching, similar to DragonballZ and One Piece. I remember the first time I watched it... I was watching Fox Kids / Jetix and waiting for the show SonicX to premiere on the channel, which was coincidently premiering the same day as Shaman King. And it was one of them “Love at first sight” feelings, though I was a kid at the time.
The opening hooked me to the series, and the theme was… to this day something I still love. Partnering with ghosts and imbuing them into yourself/ weapons. Plus I really liked the story as well, with this mysterious kid and tournament that took place every 500 years. I have to commend Takei Hiroyuki on the idea and it ran quite well. It’s not until half way through the series/ 30 chapters in the manga that the main antagonist shows up and you find out what this is really about!

Eventually I finished the series and a few years later decided to revisit it as I heard the Manga is completely different to the Series (Which it is). It was a great 300 chapters… until the very end, which wasn’t really climactic. Yet was kind of realistic with the way they hyped up the antagonist (Yes it’s one of those where they make the antagonist seem god-like). But even though the ending was… meh… and I had quite a few complaints about the story and manga. But overall I enjoyed it.

This week a new series of Shaman King came out called Shaman King: Flowers which is set around 15ish years after the Shaman tournament and focuses on Yoh Asakura’s son Hana Asakura and from the first chapter it does look to be quite interesting.  I have high hopes for this series and have needed a good new manga to be excited about. Recently only Naruto and One Piece have really been doing it for me. There used to be a time when I had a whole battalion of manga that I used to read and now it’s fleshed down to Naruto, One Piece and Bleach (The BIG 3). I might need to catch up on Hitman Reborn and Fairy Tail when they get good again; as they lost my interest a while back.

 But yeah I’ve ranted on enough.  

Here is the link for the new Shaman King flowers manga.


P.s Ajiey Media has quite a lot of content planned for the near future. Well I always say that maybe not the immediate future but the near future definately. As you know I've been working on quite a few things including the Dystopia Universe with my friend Darasimi... I'm not gonna give you too much info on that. Along with some weekly content and a few more additions to the Ajiey Media team. P.s and maybe even a Fantasy World: Chapter two.... Who knows, wait and find out!
