I’m most def a big fan of the dearly departed director Stanley Kubrick. It’s nearly impossible for to say which of his films I like the best (Nearly. I plan on a top ten list in the near future). I’m also a big fan of Stanley Kubrick Art. Thats why when I saw these on Geek Tyrant I had to put em on here too.
Artist Tracie Ching perfectly captured the feel of three of the directors finest in her showcase titled The Kubrick Trilogy, which has stylish poster versions of The Shining, Dr Strangelove, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. They are all part of Kubrick – An Art Show Tribute at the Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, an exhibition that began on September 6th and includes over 60 other artists who “were invited to re-image their favorite characters, scenes, and thematic concepts from one of the world’s most prolific directors”. Seriously, theirs some insanely cool pieces in there, if you’re in the area (like I wish I was) go check em out.

Yesterday producer Sean O’Brien took to the NBA Live 15 blog to release an open letter announcing the most shocking video game news in the world: NBA Live 15 has been delayed to October 28th. That date is significant because its also the tipoff of the NBA season, as well as three weeks after the release of NBA 2K15. Fan and critic reaction for the Visuals Trailer must have been lukewarm. Comparing last weeks trailer (below) to the beast released from 2K in late August, I don’t see why the hell anybody would want to buy Live. But theres plenty of 2K haters out there too.
A little history of this album: despite the pleadings of Mercury Records at the time for the band to not do another “concept” album (after the semi-commercial failure of the previous album, Caress of Steel), members Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Pert wrote this sci-fi masterpiece telling a dystopian story set in the year 2112. It became their breakthrough album, and eventually lead to this glorious moment where Ricky kidnaps Alex Lifeson:
Its been about 18 years since I’ve watched a “new” episode of The Simpsons, and I was never much of a Family Guy…guy, but Hawk sent me a link to a slideshow that gives a sneak peek at the crossover episode (which will actually be Family Guy’s 13th season opener) and I’m thinkin’ I’ll give it a shot.
On Wednesday Entertainment Weekly released three different covers in anticipation of the episode (which airs September 28th) the first showing Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin euphorically munching on some donuts (seen above). The second cover has Bart Simpson and Stewie Griffin, both dressed like Bart has for the last twenty five years, and aiming sling shots directly at you. The third has Lisa Simpson staring in astonishment as Meg Griffin wails on the saxamaphone. Theres a link to the final two under the video below, which gives a five minute preview of the episode.
So now you’d better stop and rebuild all your ruins, For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing…
Week by week my interest in the multiplayer fps Destiny has grown. But now Bungie (the guys who brought you Halo) busted out the big guns.
The Destiny live action trailer titled “Become Legend”doesn’t actually show any gameplay and everything is shot like a movie with actors and some cg. It’s become a common advertising practice, especially with the mega budget games.
