An interesting take, Harley being a long for the ride and using the Joker.
"He made me understand that in order ta be free, I hadda push aside what I knew an’ become a whole new person. Someone who could be anything they wanted. The sex kitten, the seductress, the innocent, the aggressor, the antagonist, the victim, the ditz… He really loves the ditz, so I played along."
Ingress is an augmented-reality game by Google’s Niantic Labs that focuses on the control and manipulation of “mysterious energy sources” at landmarks, public art, and similar locations. Players are split between two factions — “The Enlightened” that want to embrace this energy, and “The Resistance” that wants to safeguard humanity from it — and must work together to accomplish more difficult tasks that can’t be accomplished alone.
A mysterious energy has been unearthed by a team of scientists in Europe. The origin and purpose of this force is unknown, but some researchers believe it is influencing the way we think. We must control it or it will control us.

Thanks Eddie Codel!
Guh, I think I just jizzed mah pants.
“Lessons Learned” is a short live-action puppet film directed by puppeteer Toby Froud, son of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth designers Brian and Wendy Froud, who also played the kidnapped child Toby in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. The short, which is executive produced by IBEX Puppetry creative director Heather Henson, follows the story of a young boy who is transported to a fantasy world.
I have vivid memories of goblins’ faces and strange creatures and chaos around me that could just be from growing up in the house I lived in, or from seeing the film as many times as I have, or it could be remembering the puppets that were in front of me. I’m not sure.
*burp* Oh! Excuse me!

Indeed and yet.... ask and you shall receive. This comic makes mah brainz happy. In a fantasy sort of way.
John Oliver does a really good job of describing the situation.
The bit about the Boston bomber especially.
CollegeHumor returns for another round of a theoretical world where Google’s search engine is actually a person that everyone consults. In the latest video, Google takes a trip to the Deep Web, looks for pictures of Sonic the Hedgehog, and attempts to help someone determine if vaccines cause autism.
Diablo III’s Witch Doctor is one creepy looking character, and Instructables user andysmeech did an excellent job translating it from screen to real life. He used a combination of everyday objects like wire clothes hangers and building materials such as expanding foam to achieve the finished look. Here’s how he made the head piece:
As you can see I saved the hassle of having like 18 steps on this project by stitching the images together for your pleasure [pictured below]. The first image to the left is my backbone to the whole mask. I started by buying a cheap plastic mask. Attached to the plastic mask is a paper towel role with a wired clothes hanger through it to make the long horns, two cardboard nub horns and an added forehead piece, and sideburn armor. Everything is taped to hold it in place. the next image (top right) is the back bone covered in Great Stuff – it is a spray insulation foam from the hardware store. Once I covered the mask with foam I let it dry for a whole day. Once it was dry I started to carve the foam to take shape of the face and horns. Once I was was done the carving I painted the mask with spray paint and acrylics.
He said the small details really made this costume. He made the ear plugs and bone piercing with modeling clay and painted them with acrylic. The neck piece was made from rope, and he used a piece of a cheap curtain to make the tassel pendant. The potion bottles are plastic bottles filled with food coloring and water.

That's the way life moves.

There’s a new US trailer for Terry Gilliam‘s latest film, The Zero Theorem, and some release info for the US, too. After months in limbo the movie finally has a Stateside release date of August 19th for digital and VOD, with a theatrical release set for September 19. Christoph Waltz stars as a troubled man tasked with a potentially impossible problem, and Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton and Matt Damon all play roles as well. Check out the new Zero Theorem US trailer below.Sure, the film has been dinged in overseas release, and there are things in this trailer (and in all of the trailers, really) that makes me feel some concern for the film. But still, I’m still going to give Gilliam a shot, as he’s one of the last true maverick weirdos working on a big scale.

Acclaimed director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) returns with the visually stunning sci-fi epic The Zero Theorem, starring Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius. Living in isolation, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life – or the complete lack of one—once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), his unpredictable supervisor Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.
The first teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 took the form of a video message from the Capitol, in which President Snow (Donald Sutherland) cloaked his threats to the rebels in platitudes about peace and unity. In the second teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the rebels fight back with a message of their own. Watch it after the jump.
Lionsgate / the Capitol / District 13 unveiled the video on YouTube.
Seeing Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) by Snow’s side in the last video was chilling enough, but the new video ups the ante by putting Johanna (Jena Malone) up there as well. It’s a heartbreaking transformation for a girl who spent her pre-Games interview screaming obscenities at those responsible for the Quarter Quell. Fortunately for them, help may be on the way as Beetee (Jeffrey Wright) has apparently found a way to hack into the system.
Francis Lawrence returns to direct the third installment of the Hunger Games series, which once again stars Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Sam Claflin, and Liam Hemsworth. Julianne Moore joins the cast this time as the leader of District 13. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 opens November 21, followed by Part 2 on November 20, 2015.
The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

I love these.
Mario Wienerroither recently stripped all of the groovy-sounding music out of the music video for “Blue Suede Shoes” by Elvis Presley. He then dubbed over the video with odd guitar and vocal sounds. We’ve previously written about Mario and his ongoing series of musicless music videos.
Here is the original music video for comparison:
