Toward A Theory Of Normcore Food


"Boring fruits like apples, oranges, bananas, cherries, apples (anything stock enough to appear on slot machines and candy) are normcore. Kale, collard greens, lychee, mango, etc. are not."

Dafuq did I just read

Toward A Theory Of Normcore Food:

The antithetical culinary trend of hipster food, snackwave, seizes on its puritanism and refutes it through slovenliness, shopping mall imagery, and pro-capitalist branding. It is the first prong in the anti-hipster food backlash.

With DC’s newly announced redesigns for the iconic Trinity, Stephen Byrne brings us his awesome take! Here the heroes are sleek and casual, almost block buster-ey in a way. He provides some wonderful sequentials to flesh out his redesigns, and they have a great effect. I can imagine a reality where these designs would fit in an “Ultimate” type universe. -Patrick

Hark, A Vagrant: the Enchantress

buy this print!

When I was signing books in Frankfurt, someone asked me to draw The Enchantress, and I had never heard of her, so he produced a picture, and I asked questions about her while I drew. It turns out I think she is pretty great.

The brand new German edition of my book is available from Zwerchfell Press, with a pretty great title: OBACHT! LUMPENPACK

Blind Item: Actor vs Director


Good fanfic.

An acclaimed actor. And an acclaimed director. A director with a huge ego, recently made even bigger, and his acclaimed friends are pricks too, so it’s not like there’s anyone around to check his behaviour... until he took it a step too far with someone who has some experience with knocking around douchebags on set.

So it’s been a long shoot. And this is a technically particular director. His exacting demands have made it so that production is taking a long, long time. He berates and belittles the crew, he’s impatient, and he’s often cruel, even unethical in his pursuit to get the “perfect shot”. With the hardware now, he feels even more justified in being as unkind as he wants to be, because in his mind, art is often not compatible with compassion. Compassion was the problem when one of his leads, due to a physical ailment, relied on wardrobe to come up with a solution that would alleviate some of his pain. It was a relief to the actor and, for the most part, it wasn’t a big deal aesthetically, until a long shot was required, at which point the director noticed that an adjustment had been made to help with the actor’s discomfort.

The director went ballistic. He got right up in the actor’s face. They start screaming at each other. They decide to take their argument somewhere private, where they continue to yell at each other. It’s LOUD. It’s ugly. It’s level 15 on intensity. The director won’t forgive, the actor won’t apologise. Everyone can hear. And then…


The actor exits. On his own.

The director?

Is found by the crew moments later. On the ground in his tent. One punch.

RUMOR: 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' will kill off a major supporting character


I don't like it, but surely the obvious answer is Peggy.

  • Bleeding Cool reported that Quicksilver, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, will die in his first appearance in the MCU

  • However, Taylor-Johnson has signed a multi-film deal with Marvel and Badass Digest is saying the rumor is false

  • There have been persistent rumors that someone will die in Age of Ultron

The following are some quotes pulled both from the AP Live livestream, and from other interview audio picked up by the stream. Some are humorous, some are pointless, some are insightful. Note that there are some instances of paraphrasing:

Michael McElhatton:

“People are going to disappear that didn’t disappear [in the books].”

“The Boltons solidify their hold on the North. There’s a wedding… *whispers* which I can’t tell you about.”

Dean-Charles Chapman:

“Tommen is blossoming very big [as a character].”

[On the relationship between Tommen and Margaery] “As a viewer it’s messed up, but for me, life is good!”

Iwan Rheon:

“There’s a religious feeling that comes in [this season]. The whole world opens up a bit.”

[On Alfie Allen] “He has a very thankless task as an actor, but he does a tremendous job. I love working with him.”

Daniel Portman:

“[Podrick] comes out of his shell a bit.”

“[This season] we see more of [Brienne and Pod] warming to each other.”

Alfie Allen:

“The book series is based on the Wars of the Roses, so it’s kind of apt to be here [at the Tower of London].”

“There are definitely some real dark moments, but in very Game of Thrones fashion there’s some light at the end of the tunnel.”

Hannah Murray:

“I made a real effort this year to not read any of the scenes I’m not in. I’m as in the dark as anyone.”

Liam Cunningham:

[On the choice of venue] “Two-hundred years ago we’d be in here getting our heads chopped off. Now we’re watching the telly!”

“If I told you anything, you and me would be kicked to death.”

Isaac Hempstead-Wright:

“I can relax, I’ve got nothing to worry about tonight… for all I know, Melisandre sets herself on fire by accident.”

“I’ve had my first full term at school since forever, this year.”

[On Bran’s return to the show] “I’m assuming season 6, but I’ve had no official confirmation.”

Roger Ashton-Griffiths:

“I invite viewers to check out the buckles on my costume.”

Sophie Turner:

“I didn’t read the scripts this year because I wanted to be surprised.”

“I don’t know if it’ll do ten seasons. That might be a bit much, but we’ll see.”

Ian Beattie:

[Hugs Sophie] “See, I didn’t really beat her!”

“It’s like working for a big, dysfunctional, incredibly talented family.”

“I do think Season 5 is going to be the best one yet.”

Mark Gatiss:

“I’m in one episode this year.”

[On the scripts] “We get our bits – everything else is heavily redacted.”

Kit Harington:

“This season is about [Jon] growing up – being a politician, being a commander.”

“I had a certain episode that was far an away bigger and better than anything I’ve ever done.”

“There’s some big shocks this season, there’s some big events.”

“I can’t tell you what happens with me… it’ll be really interesting.”

John Bradley:

“When you’ve got good promotional tactics and good artistic integrity, you’ve got a real recipe for success.”

“We’re more keen on making a good show than a big show.”

“Characters you’d never expect [Sam] to meet actually meet him.”

[Shouts at Kit] “Get out ‘me interview!”

Jonathan Pryce:

“I had and I hope to carry on having a great time.”

“High Five, High Sparrow is the new phrase, I think.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau:

“We enter the endgame now.”

Aidan Gillen:

“The ampage is really going to be turned up.”

“Watch. Watch and see.”

Shylights: Beautiful Unfolding Kinetic Lights That Bloom like Flowers

by Christopher Jobson






Several types of flowers are known to open and close for reasons of defense or energy conservation. This evolutionary mechanism, called nyctinasty, inspired Studio DRIFT to design the Shylight, a kinetic light fixture that opens dramatically during a 30 foot (9 meter) fall. The motion mimics the same action of a blooming flower or the billowing of a parachute. A collection of Shylights were just permanently installed at Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and you can see them in action in the video above. (via Prosthetic Knowledge)

DC's New 52 is over! Get ready for SuperBro, RoboBatBunny and WonderCanOpener



After DC's alternate universe crossover Convergence, most of the Justie league is getting a makeover starting in June. I guess DC was tired of people complaining about the New 52 and wanted to spite fans and make them wish we could go back to those simpler 2011 redesigns.


Green Lantern, Green Arrow an Flash get new looks too but they're not as drastic and I'm too lazy to add them so just go here

So what do you think ONTD? Are you popular at parties because people can use your wristblades as bottle openers? Do you have trouble telling the difference between a rabbit and a bat? Are you too lazy to wear a real costume so you wear jeans and a t-shirt while your girlfriend wears 4 outfits at once?

An Aerial Tour of ‘Hang Son Soong,’ the Largest Cave on Earth

by Christopher Jobson





In this new 6-minute film, cave, adventure, and travel photographer Ryan Deboodt takes us on a breathtaking aerial tour of the world’s largest cave, Hang Son Doong, located in central Vietnam. Deboodt brought a drone and an array of cameras to help capture the cave system, the largest chamber of which is 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) long, 200 meters (660 ft) high and 150 meters (490 ft) wide. Despite its enormity, the cave was only discovered in 1991 by a local man, and it wasn’t even studied by scientists until about five years ago. One of the most disorienting thing about watching Deboodt’s film was my brain not comprehending the scale of what I was looking at. It’s only once you notice the ant-like people walking through some of the shots that you realize just how massive this place is. You can see more of Deboodt’s cave photography on Instagram.

People should buy all four because #YOLLO

EW cover

Entertainment Weekly has just announced their upcoming Game of Thrones Season 5 themed-issue.

James Hibberd spent a total of ten days on various sets spread over three countries. His coverage will be in the March 20/27 issue, available this week. The magazine will contain “an unprecedented 30 pages to exploring the past, present, and future of Game of Thrones,” and be spoiler-free, EW promises.

Revealed in the announcement is the fact that the upcoming season will contain three weddings. Weddings are always exciting affairs in Thrones… it will be interesting to see where this season’s will take us.

The issue will have four different character covers – Daenerys, Jon, Tyrion and Arya.





Bonus pic: a closer look at Arya’s new outfit:


The stars on the collectible covers were also asked to sum up GoT in thirty seconds or less, with interesting results. Head on over to Entertainment Weekly to check out the funny video. The gist of it is blood, death, boobs, death, sex, dragons…and possibly a Winnebago.

EW has also shared videos in which the stars talk about who they’d like to share fight scenes with in (and out of) the show.

Adrock Talks About What He's Been Up To


'What do you do with your life when your former life is no more?'


  • He is set to appear in Noah Baumbach's upcoming comedy-drama While We're Young as Ben Stiller's Brooklyn-dad buddy, plays bass in comedian-singer Bridget Everett's band and has been scoring movies like the romance Truth About Lies and No No: A Dockumentary about baseball player Dock Ellis.

  • He is nostalgic. "My friend Ada Calhoun is finishing a book about St. Marks Place and basically every generation since Peter Stuyvesant days have been like, 'When I was at St. Marks Place, that's when it was cool,'" says Horovitz. "So the 'kids today' thing has been going on for centuries. It's a silly argument. It's always been the same."

  • He and Mike D are writing a memoir about the Beastie Boys. "I write a bunch of stuff and I send it to Mike, and Mike writes a bunch of stuff and he sends it to me. We just comment and have arguments on what we wrote ... I'm remembering the fun things; not the depressing things."

  • He doesn't know what to do with his life. "It's like, 'What do you do with your life when your former life is no more?' I have to figure it out. I don't know if I ever will."

Mail a Spud lets you send someone a potato through the USPS

by Julie Strietelmeier


As part of a new feature I will call “World’s stupidest products” or “Do people really buy this stuff?”, we have the Mail a Spud service. And yes, it’s exactly what you think it is. It’s a Russet potato with stamps on it that is sent through the United States Postal Service first class mail direct to your mailbox. The potato isn’t shipped in a box or an envelope. It’s just as you see above. Why? I don’t think there’s an answer to that question that makes any sense. Especially when you learn that it costs $9.95 for one potato and not two potato, three potato, four. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Seriously though, they want you to pay $9.95 for an ordinary potato. Most grocery stores around here sell a bag with several pounds of potatoes for half that price. As a gag gift or a prank it could be funny, but I think it’s just wasteful and dumb. What do you think? Let us know in the comment section. For more info visit

We’ve been running a survey this week to guess the episode titles of Game of Thrones season 5, and the poll closed this morning- apparently just in time! GeeklyInc is reporting that a source has informed them of the first three episode titles.

We’ve run the titles by our own sources, and we can now confirm that they are accurate.

Update: The fourth episode title has been revealed by Spoiler TV, and again we’ve confirmed with our sources that it’s accurate.

The titles of the first four episodes are:

Episode 501: “The Wars to Come”

Episode 502: “The House of Black and White”

Episode 503: “High Sparrow”

Episode 504: “The Sons of the Harpy”

We’re gathering up the results of the survey at the moment, but I can tell you that a great many people guessed the title of episode two correctly!

What does everyone think of the titles so far?

This Bubbling Ferrofluid Light Works like a Magnetized Lava Lamp

by Christopher Jobson





We’ve seen a number of interesting ways to play with magnetized ferrofluid over the last few years, but here’s a new one worth a mention. Designer Kyle Haines just launched a Kickstarter featuring his design for a “motion lamp” filled with heated ferrofluid that can be manipulated with a pair of magnets called the Inspiration. The idea works somewhat similar to the iconic 60s-era lava lamp but with a magnetized twist. For those who just want to play with ferrofluid without the lamp, he’s also create a smaller self-contained bottle called the Thinker. See a video of them in action here.
