From his emergence as a monochrome teen mod in the 1960s, to the glitter-soaked, gender-bending explosion as Ziggy Stardust in the 1970s, and the new romanticism, neo-classicism and Berlin-channelling looks that followed, Bowie is best known for undergoing a style renaissance at every possible turn.

i wish they had continued this bromance past season one even with Trobed.
He is often been counted among one of the most legendary villains of Hollywood, known for his extremely riveting portrayals of antagonists. But then, playing negative roles are not his only forte as his acting abilities know no boundaries. He is a resourceful actor who fits into the shoes of any character he is assigned to play. Be it a romantic or a comic role, he does it all with finesse. A brilliant actor with a unique style, Pacino, has set landmarks with almost every film he has worked in.
“It started when I was very young. I mean, really young,” he said. “I wasn't let out much. I was kept in. And while I was home I found myself repeating the roles from the movies I saw with my mother. Sometimes she'd take me to the movies when she came home from work. That was our date.”
Charming and appealing, young Pacino was not one of those actors, who believed good-looks were only associated with protagonists. He chose to play characters, who were handsome, attractive and charismatic, but evil. He belongs to the generation of actors who challenged the conventions and changed the face of modern day cinema through their sheer brilliance and hard work.

Lynda Carter - 1970s
Corruption, persecution, racial tension, financial inequality… Civil conflict across the globe has exploded. As inequality tears the very fabric of society the discontentment of the masses manifests itself in violent public disturbances and disorder.
RIOT – Civil Unrest is a simulation video game that recreates some of the world’s infamous riots. Campaigns include: The Italian NoTav opposition to a planned high-speed rail link between Turin and Lyon; The Arab Spring uprising in Egypt; Indignados, the anti-austerity protests in Spain; and Keratea, the landfill fuelled struggle against the government in crisis-racked Greece. In addition, there are over 30 single scenarios including London in the UK and Oakland in the USA.
RIOT – Civil Unrest’s creator, Leonard Menchiari, experienced rioting first-hand at the NoTAV protests in Italy. He created the game to tell the stories and express the emotions felt during these clashes. What triggers the anger and aggression? Often outnumbered, what does a police officer endure during the conflict?
RIOT – Civil Unrest features Leonard Menchiari’s unique and beautiful pixel art. The Bologna-based development team worked hard on the crowd behaviour. Each individual character has its own artificial intelligence and personal space that gives the overall crowd mass very realistic and fluid movement.

If you've been on Twitter long enough, there's a good chance that you've run across one of Simpsons Films tweets on your timeline. You know the ones -- they take random screencaps of Simpsons episodes and use them to simultaneously parody and somehow also accurately describe popular movies. It's hard to figure out why The Simpsons can seemingly apply to almost any concept or plot imaginable, so I contacted the person behind Simpsons Films for answers.
"I think the sheer longevity of the show helps; the more varied situations there are, the more likely they'll line up with something else," Simpsons Films said over Twitter DM. They wished to remain anonymous. "That, plus the creativity and artistry of the animation in the earlier years led to some very cinematic moments and direction which doesn't really happen with the modern episodes."
Simpsons Films told me that they make ample use of the magical screencap emporium Frinkiac whenever inspiration strikes, though they have accepted occasional submissions from fellow fans. At just over 400 tweets at the time of this writing, the account has struck gold an impressive amount of time in its yearlong lifespan. I collected some of my favorite tweets below:
