NEW Batman v Superman: Daybreak of Justice Trailer Reveals DOOMSDAY

NEW Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer Reveals DOOMSDAY

We've to confess that we have now not been over enthusiastic about this film till now. It does look increasingly like a enjoyable trip (although Ben Affleck will NEVER be an OK selection for enjoying Batman, they need to have gone with Mickey Rourke!).

It appear to be a enjoyable motion experience with fairly good styling and results BUT…..What the….is that CGI Turd in the long run of the Trailer? We KNOW it's imagined to be the DC Villain DOOMSDAY….BUT significantly! He seems like The Factor from that terrible incredible four remake….FAIL

And Wonderwoman? MEH…

Or what do you suppose? Batman v Superman: Daybreak of Justice arrives to theaters on March 25,

Gotham City-based vigilante Batman travels to Metropolis to preemptively fight Superman,

Gothic Punk - How to Get the Goth Punk Look

[ad_1]

The gothic punk look is one that is often misunderstood.  In actuality, goth and punk are two separate subcultures.  Punk is more closely drawn to the punk rock music scene, and many punk and rock music fans are mistaken for being part of the goth subculture. 

Goth, rather than being based upon any certain type of music, is seen as its proponents more as a means of personal expression.  Often, dressing in the goth style is a reaction to feeling separate from those around them, whether as outcasts, or as a general feeling of just being different.

The gothic look draws its influences from many sources.  Clothing typically emulates that of the middle ages, Victorian age, or early twentieth century.  The make-up is heavily dark, with use of black eyeliner by both male and female goths. 

This cosmetic style is thought to be influenced at least partially by the early silent film actress, Theda Bara, whose large eyes, dark make-up, and dark hair was especially striking on screen.

While gothic punk isn't a style all its own, it's common for goths and punks to share some similarities in their dress and attitude.  Both are fiercely independent and believe strongly in self expression. 

Typically, both are meticulous about their specialized hair styles and make-up.  It is in choice of color and fashion that the two differ the most. 

Punk clothes are often deconstructed.  That is, they are purposefully torn, or they can look unfinished, and additionally, they are usually modern. 

Goths, on the other hand, rely on well-fitted garments and convey their style through choice of color, fabric, and most importantly, accessories, and their clothing is usually based on earlier centuries' fasions.

The other typical focus of gothic clothing is on emphasizing sexuality.  The goth look is often revealing.  Fitted garments and corset accentuate the female form.  Hose and tights are ripped to showcase the legs, and tight pants on both genders have the same effect.

Both punk and goth dressers reject mainstream styles and sensibilities, so it is common for people to confuse or combine them into a sort of gothic punk.

Sketch Tattoos That Look Like Pencil Drawings By Nomi Chi

Naomi Chi’s tattoos look like mostly finished pencil drawings. The Vancouver artist-student achieves this through her sketch-like style; the guiding lines and shapes used to compose the image are left in, giving the impression that you’re looking at an open sketchbook.

“My interest in visual art was spurred by animation, so capturing movement is important to me,” Chi told Brown Paper Bag. “I also strive to implicate a kind of immediacy in my my tattoos, so there’s a lot of improvisation — It keeps the process fresh and fun for me. I’m glad my clients like it too, of course!”

Halloween cats made from stacked pumpkins (and mini-pumpkin paws)

Make black cat lanterns

Make your entry glow with fat Halloween cats made from stacked pumpkins (and mini-pumpkin paws)

 blackcat-cats-m
Create a spooky trio of glossy black cats to watch over trick-or-treaters at your door. All you need are a few pumpkins in feline shapes ― long or pear-shaped for the body, small and round for the face. More great ideas for pumpkins At the pumpkin patch, look for body shapes with character and a stable base. They can lean to one side (like a cat on its haunches) but shouldn't wobble. Choose a tall one for an elegant cat, or a squat orange heirloom for a chubby cat curled on its paws. Test a few "heads" until you find a good match. This twist on the traditional jack-o'-lantern cuts down on some of the usual pumpkin cleaning: No need to hollow out the body. Just clean out and carve the head, then add mini pumpkin paws, curvy cucumber tails, and ears from stiffened felt or black card stock from the craft store. Then, light the candle, get the candy, and watch your Halloween cats come to life. Carve a cat pumpkin Step 1: Cut out top of small pumpkin and scoop the inside clean. Place it upside down on the base pumpkin, turning to find a good fit. If necessary, carve opening slightly to adjust. Step 2: Set head on the base to decide placement of eyes, then carve them out. You can draw them on first or use our template. Step 3: Cut pointy ears out of felt or card stock and mark their positions on the head with a pen. Carve two shallow grooves into the head to hold the ears. Avoid cutting all the way through the pumpkin. (For more realistic ears, carve crescent-shaped grooves.) Step 4: Prep an outside work area for spray painting. Stuff the head with loosely crumpled newspaper. Cover pumpkins, mini pumpkins, and cucumber with one or two thin coats of black spray paint. Allow to dry. Remove stuffing and insert the ears. Step 5: If the head is wobbly, gently pound a few floral picks into the body with the mallet or hammer. Measure the opening of the head, then position the picks to fit just inside. Touch up paint if needed. Step 6: Put a short tea light on a lid or dish to catch any drips. Stick to the top of the big pumpkin with a small ball of clay polymer or poster putty. Attach the head. Position cat and arrange tail and paws next to body.

The Ramones Said ‘Adios’ With A Whimper, But At Least They Didn’t Embarrass Themselves

Ramones_-_Adios_Amigos_cover

Album Cover

The Ramones of the ’70s are iconic. They were at the vanguard of punk, and arguably pop punk, and created songs that are still considered classics of the genre today. You go to a sporting event, you hear “Blitzkrieg Bop.” Their look was easily recognizable, and influential. They appeared in Rock ‘N’ Roll High School. Then came 1980’s End of the Century which was, in its own way, the end of an era for the band. By 1995, when they released their final studio album Adios Amigos!, they were no longer part of the zeitgeist. They were an afterthought, and they weren’t even the same band. The change from Tommy to Marky on the drums had happened a while back, with a brief stay from Richie in there as well, and, in truth, changing the drummer isn’t really going to rile up many people. However, by the time of Adios Amigos!, Dee Dee was also all but gone, although his presence is still felt on the album, as he is credited as the writer on many of the songs, including a handful from other projects of his. He had been replaced with C.J. Ramone, who was given a lot of credit by his bandmates for bringing some much-needed youthful energy to the band. C.J. could only do so much, though. This was a band that had been releasing music for 20 years. Nobody could blame them for being burnt out. Adios Amigos! begins with the iconic “1, 2, 3, 4!” count off that was synonymous with the band, but after that it feels decidedly like warmed-over Ramones. Now, this could be where one would break out the old chestnut about how even bad pizza is pretty good, and how the same can be said for the Ramones. The Ramones were still making the music they’ve made for years. Charging guitars. Simple drumbeats. Although, they do slow it down a bit more than they did in the past, in part to ease the strain on Joey’s vocals. He gets to croon a bit, and he’s not half-bad at it. The album is hit-or-miss. In addition to the songs from Dee Dee, there is a cover of Tom Waits’ “I Don’t Want to Grow Up” and Johnny Thunders’ “I Love You.” They are both fine. “Fine” is about the highest level this album achieves. “Life’s a Gas” is pretty good, but also goes on a bit too long. In the end, the songs that Joey sings on are reminiscent of the glory days of the Ramones. The issue is that on four of the tracks, C.J. takes the lead vocals. One of the song, “Scattergun,” is OK, but the others are abysmal. Of course, one of those songs is “The Crusher” from Dee Dee’s brief time as a rapper, so C.J. can’t take all of the blame. Nevertheless, it’s one of the worst things ever recorded for posterity. Dee Dee’s impact on the album is felt in his songwriting, but his only tangible appearance is on the final song “Born to Die in Berlin,” wherein he (literally) phones it in from Germany. None of the original Ramones (Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, and Tommy) would die in Berlin, but they have all now passed away. Three of them have been dead for over a decade now. However, those Ramones weren’t the Ramones by the time the band was winding it all down. Adios Amigos! isn’t a stain on their legacy by any means. It has its moments, and it sounds like the Ramones, which has merit. Based on their album title, obviously, they knew this was the end. They didn’t go down in a blaze of glory, but at least they said goodbye without embarrassing themselves.

If My Cat Could Speak

Cats know so many things. They definitely know the meaning of life. They are wiser than you, they are more intelligent than you, and they are generally better than you in everything. You must accept it – you’ll never be as good as your cat. But can you imagine what would happen if your cat could speak? That’s right – it would judge you. Every step of the way.

My cat always watches me with a look which says, “You’re stupid.” So this is an illustrated story about the things my cat (I presume) would say if he could speak. And it makes me think I am lucky that he can’t…

Seriously?

Feed me, slave!

Go away…

I have no time for you

Not listening…

You’re stupid

The door

Just no

Cross-Stitch Tattoos By Turkish Artist Eva Krbdk

Many people consider cross-stitching to be something their grandma would do, but Eva Krbdk, a tattoo artist based in Ankara, Turkey, seems to think otherwise. Her cross-stitch tattoo designs look like a cross between pixel art and the popular folk art they’re named for.

Many of her pieces are simple and cute, but with a large-enough canvas, they can become truly impressive, utilizing a wide array of colors that blend to form beautiful images. She’s not a one-trick pony, either – check out her Instagram for other cool tattoos!

TEMPESCOPE SIMULATES THE WEATHER FORECAST IN A BOX

For when you’ve had enough of the weatherman, which is like, always. The Tempescope is a cool invention that lets you know of tomorrow’s weather forecast by actually simulating sunshine, rain, fog, and even lightning indoors. Created by Japanese designer Ken Kawamoto, the device features a small box that gathers weather information online and then simulates that forecast using a combination of LED light, water, and ultrasonics (for the fog). Great if you’re too lazy to get up off the couch and look out the window. DIY experts can help themselves to Kawamoto’s open source version for the Tempescopeby accessing it at ‘OpenTempescope’. Others will have to wait a bit longer as the Tempescope team is still getting ready to launch a Kickstarter campaign later this year.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD MY LITTLE PONY BECAUSE OF COURSE

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD My Little Pony Because Of Course

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD MY LITTLE PONY BECAUSE OF COURSE

Even if the movie wasn’t the biggest smash hit of the year, the way it should have been, Mad Max: Fury Road has certainly taken the prize for the film with the largest permeation on the internet. The number of essays and articles written about George Miller’s post-apocalyptic, people-driving-in-a-straight-line action film became a must-see for fans of cinema and discourse about gender roles, internal politics, and blind devotion. It’s also precipitated all sorts of awesome DIY projects, par exemplesome Mad Max Power Wheels.

The newest and, we admit, most absurdly awesome of these projects are custom-made (and totally unofficial, via artist Kelsey Wailes) Mad Max: Fury Road My Little Pony figurines. That’s right, two weird worlds that are even weirder together. The artist used the older variety of My Little Pony dolls, from prior to the Brony days, and Polymer clay, acrylics, leather, and faux fur to create highly-accurate equestrian representations of Max Rockatansky, Imperator Furiosa, Nux, and Immortan Joe.

My Little Pony Mad Max

They look so happy together, don’t they?

Both the Nux and the Max figures had heads that could rotate, but all four figures have the ability to drive cars (not true). I don’t know which is more impressive — Joe’s toothy face mask/breathing apparatus or Furiosa’s mechanical artificial hoof. They somehow even managed to get the look of pure chrome-fueled martyrdom in Nux’s eyes, although I seem to recall that’s just how My Little Ponies looked anyway.

The figures were available for sale at last weekend’s Awesome Con in Washington, D.C., so unfortunately that’s over, but you can still witness them in their full glory in the gallery below.

Mad Max Fury Road Ponies: Because I am a monster.

They were super fun to make and super horrifying (I’m looking at you, Immortan Joe)

Made with My Little Pony toys, Polymer clay, acrylics, leather, and faux fur.
