Apparently there’s more to New York Comic-Con than cartoon raccoons and people distancing themselves from terrorist organizations, as Marvel and Netflix also used the convention as an opportunity to promote the streaming service’s upcoming Daredevil show. A writer for io9 sat in on the panel and posted a good account of the clips that Marvel showed, which included Daredevil kicking some guy’s ass, Daredevil having a moment with Rosario Dawson’s character, Daredevil (as Matt Murdock) talking to future-love interest Karen Page, and a scene featuring Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin that was—in io9‘s words—“SENSATIONAL.”
It sounds like the show is going to stress that the Kingpin isn’t the outright villain he’s usually portrayed as, with him being more of a complicated man who sometimes does good things. Also, speaking of Rosario Dawson’s character, she won’t be playing Elektra—as ...
Like everyone currently slumped over life’s jukebox, Courtney Love is convinced that this Smashing Pumpkins song is about her—they’re all about her—and no, you need to call a taxi. Possibly in search of some late-night halal, Love recently wandered into BBC Radio 6, where she slurred about some of her musical influences—specifically the music that she influenced, a list she says includes nearly all of Smashing Pumpkins’ best-known songs. Unfortunately for him, Love says, Billy Corgan “stopped writing about me and stopped having hits” (choosing instead to write for her and stop having hits), leaving him in a place where “he just can’t seem to get over the lump and become relevant again.” These assertions were made nearly in the same, presumably hot breath, with Love once again hearing only what she wanted in them.

And even if that Autism thing was true (WHich it fucking isn’t) your kid is still safe from these diseases.
What’s fucking worse? You saying you’d rather have dead kid then and Autistic one? Seriously Anti-vaxxers need to banished to the moon something.
This is also why shit like Autism Speaks is fucking terrible.
People are so terrified of autism due to their campaigning that they’re willing to put LIVES at risk to avoid a child who has it.
Without that fear, the anti-vaccination campaign would have never taken off.
Octavi Navarro é um artista e ilustrador que mora em Barcelona, Espanha, e trata os 8 bits dos jogos de video game dos ano 1980 e 1990 com muita seriedade. Na verdade, ele leva o conceito a um tipo de gourmetização dos 8 bits no tumblr que alimenta com os painéis complexos que contam pequenas histórias. A quantidade de detalhes e a criatividade da narrativa são impressionantes.

Artist Lia Melia grew up a few minutes walk away from the sea, and today it is still her main source of inspiration. And, you can definitely tell – her colorful, swirling paintings are reminiscent of the large body of water. Mythology has also been a life-long love of hers, and she depicts elemental forces that are represented by the gods.
Melia uses a variety of methods to create these highly-textured works, and she’s developed her practice over the course of many years. Powered pigments and solvents are baked into aluminium, or occasionally, onto glass. She uses fluid mixes which require high levels of control, so they are often thickened to make the medium easier to use. Different elements are layered to give them a rich, visual depth.
Looking closely at these paintings, we see that her skill in creating textures give the illusion of crashing waves, stormy skies, and ocean foam. Melia’s tightly-cropped compositions freeze a split second in time, and anyone who has stood in the water can imagine what happens beyond this scene. (Via Saatchi Art Tumblr)

As promised, AMC used the waning hours of its Breaking Bad marathon to debut a Better Call Saul music video. And while many expected to see Saul Goodman marrying girlfriend Stephanie Seymour while Jesse Pinkman rips an amazing guitar solo in the desert, as Breaking Bad taught us, expectations often go awry and that was “November Rain.” Instead we got country music’s Junior Brown, with lyrical help from Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, wrangling a little ditty about the myriad misdeeds committed by Saul’s clients—DUI, vandalism, insurance fraud, child abduction, shoplifting a George Foreman grill—and why they’d better call him. Fair warning: Even more so than the Heisenberg ballad “Negro y Azul,” Brown’s song has a chorus that’s meth levels of addictive.
This is beautiful!
The cinemagraph genre is one of the most exciting to follow because, unlike almost every other type of “photography” (in quotes since you they aren’t photos in the traditional sense of the word), it’s not yet oversaturated with phenomenal work.
Almost everywhere you turn you’ll find a great street photographer, or landscape photographer, or fine art photographer. But when you stumble across a master at creating cinemagraphs, he or she is one of only a handful. Julien Douvier is one such photographer.
As you might remember, earlier this month we featured a number of Douvier’s cinemagraphs of moving water.
Douvier is based out of Strasbourg, France, and his ability to combine well-crafted photographic compositions with just a touch of motion somewhere in the frame makes his cinemagraphs some of the most compelling we’ve run across.
Not limited by one genre, his photographs range from landscapes and nature scenes to street photography, sometimes augmented by only the slightest bit of motion, and at other times completely wrapped up by it. Below are some of our favorites from his sizable cinemagraph portfolio:

Yesterday I got an email from a very sweet girl who wanted to tell me how happy she was to have found “this tribe of bizarre stranglings” because she finally figured out she wasn’t alone and there were others out there like her. And it was very lovely, although I did think it was odd that she was witnessing so many stranglings here, but then I realized that she meant “strangelings” (like “changelings” but stranger, and that spellcheck had probably changed it for her because spellcheck is an asshole who doesn’t understand the fluidity of language.) She also included this quote from the Breakfast Club because she thought it fit our odd community so well:
And I agree.
And I decided to write this post in case you needed to be reminded of how important you are to me, and to all the other strangelings and misfits out there who find themselves at this blog, and realize they aren’t alone, and get the support they need to be the dazzlingly odd person they are without apology. You have no idea how important you are.
And I love the quote, but I did feel it needed a small tweak to reflect the us that we’ve become:
Never change, sweet strangelings.
The future bullies its way into the traditional European countryside in German artist Jakub Rozalski's dystopian paintings. (more…)

DUMBO Arts Festival
As part of this year’s DUMBO Arts Festival, sculptor Tom Fruin installed his famous plexiglass house, Kolonihavehus, in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The multi-colored house was lit from inside and temporarily inhabited by performance duo CoreAct who engaged in a collaborative physical performance that is described here by DUMBO:
The colorful glass house is inhabited by two performers, who portray everyday dilemmas and lifestyle paradoxes in a subtle manner. They have lost the ability to meaningfully discriminate, and are trapped in a long chain of procrastination, mirroring our current social patterns.
