The dichotomy between commerce and art work force in one simple sequence. This stuff they won’t even teach you in school, kids. Know the game! Did I mention that i frikkin love this new TV series in Japan, called "Aoi Honoo?" (Blue Blazes :-)
Brilliance. Find it, it’s a hysterical and seriously honest coming-of-age story/ depiction of life as an animator/manga-ka in school.
This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.
Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.
boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.
JOINTS IN MOTION
As said by IFL science
Cameron Drake of San Francisco has created a collection of magnificent images showing joints in motion. He was aided by orthopedic physician Dr. Noah Weiss and the finished product is completely amazing. If you’d like to know more about the project, please check out Drake’s blog.
The photos reportedly showing the robbery are not even from the same store that was robbed (confirmed by reporter @WesleyLowery). Spread the word folks. The police are BLATANTLY lying!
The Ferguson Police Department held a press conference on the Michael Brown shooting this morning.
They distributed a nineteen-page dossier alleging that Brown had shoplifted a pack of cigarettes from a convenience store prior to being shot.
Nineteen pages of evidence about Brown shoplifting a pack of cigarettes. No information whatsoever about his murder.
So, Robin Williams was friends with science fiction writer Harlan Ellison, and I remembered that I had listened to this conversation they’d had about L. Ron Hubbard while Project Chanology was still going on.
Robin’s pretty quiet in this conversation because Harlan Ellison himself talks a mile a minute, but it’s an interesting listen.
I just think it’s cool that they were friends.
I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
