Jul
24

In a bold yet understandable move, Comixology announced today at Comic Con that they will be offering users the option of DRM-free backups to purchased comics, thus enabling readers to share, modify, and actually own their purchases in every sense of the word. Of course the DRM-free option is still a decision made by the publishers themselves, it's still a step in the right direction towards regaining what supporters they've lost earlier this year.

Artist Subtly Inserts 'Star Wars' Imagery into Stark, Real-World Locales

Jul
23

This photoset will make you pine for a grittier, more realistic Episode VII; Cedric Delsaux's 'Dark Lens' series features ATAT walkers trawling across European villages, a blaster duel atop a sunset parking structure, and industrial buildings housing chained rancors with their stormtrooper keepers--the stills are both subtle (difficult to do with such ostentatious and well-known source material) and brilliantly composed to blur boundaries between fantasy and stark reality.

Better keep your eyes on the number 11. At least, that's what the trailer for I Origins wants you to do. Although, honestly, eye have no idea what was going on. I suppose this movie doesn't look too bad, though, better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. At least it's something to keep your eye on. Okay, I'm done, eye swear.

Trailer for 'Space Station 76' is Basically Anchorman in Space

Jul
22

Such is the buzz regarding the deep-space comedy, in which the titular station's cramped and hormonal crew find their mission complicated considerably with the arrival of the new, female assistant captain, Veronica Cor- I mean, Jessica, as played by Liv Tyler. The genre spoof also stars Patrick Wilson as our mustachio'd, machismo buffoon, presumably with a love of scotch and a mahogany-scented, leatherbound hard drive stocked with the classics.

Track of the Day: Thai Street Musician Shreds Psychedelic on the Double-Necked 'Phin' Lute

Jul
22

The 'phin' is a family of Thai folk instruments, sometimes double necked, frequently with a completely sick headstock carved into a dragon motif, frequently played with reverb and delay effects that frequently put American garage to shame. Excuse me while I throw my wallet in a lake before I try to buy one of these babies.

Shades of Cage: Photos from the LA 'Nicolas Cage is God?!' Art Show

Jul
22

Los Angeles's Nicolas Cage Party proved that gods are indeed made, and that the internet is the breeding ground. Dozens of artists from the west coast and beyond paid tribute to the Rage Cage in stained glass, neon, spoken word, and every other medium imaginable--and some completely incomprehensible, leading me to believe a third eye necessary to witness all spectra of the transcended Cage. Click through for pics and a rundown of the one-night shrine to Hollywood's favored woman-punching, baby-snatching, plastic-fanged son!
