Marvel and DC have had some similar characters cross the pages of their legendary comics, but some of those similarities were never apparent until we saw Darren Rawlings collections of Marvel, and DC characters “hanging out”.  Check the method.  The similarities are uncanny.

Ukraine’s Got Talent winner Anastasia Sokolova, has been blowing up all over YouTube with her routines.  Some dare to say that her appeal is only sexual, but pole dancing is a form of performance art.  Although traditionally associated with strip clubs, it combines dance and acrobatics and requires quite a bit of skill to pull off.  Weather your opinion of Ms. Sokolova is that we appeal is driven by the provocative nature of her dance, or by her talent, one thing is undeniable, she’s being recognized for what she does.

“Lo/Fi” Fashion Design By Sruli Recht.

The featured “Cropped Militia Jacket” and the “Loose Sweater”, made from walnut wood material on a wool base.  Once grown, the wood is deconstructed into pieces, and then attached to a textile base, creating a material that is half wood, half textile, and completely fragmentary.  The “Wooden Textiles” in this collection are made with Elisa Strozyk, uniquely for this collection.  The simplified look of polygonal geometry is meant to represent breaking the body down into a pixelated memory.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ First Trailer.

As time draws closer and closer for yet another classic movie to be re-invented on the big screen, fans of the original Ninja Turtles movies are being split into two groups.  Those who welcome a reinvention of a classic franchise, and those who dread its existence.  The first trailer for the new Turtles movie just dropped today, and as an avid fan since I was a young boy, I’m not sure which side I fall on.  Certain facts, for example, that Michael Bay is producing, and not even directing, the knowledge that it’s a Nickelodeon movie, and that the Turtles (in the first trailer) take off their masks are all things that may be off-puting.  But the true essence of brotherhood, vigilance, and the dynamics between the four main characters is all still there and in tact.  So take a look at the debut trailer, and comment about what you think.

Coca-Cola is trying to convince consumers that a specially designed glass can also enhance the flavors of their fizzy drink. Developed in partnership with Riedel, the new glasses are inspired by the curves of the original Coca-Cola contoured bottle, and are said to capture “the distinct spices, aroma and taste of Coca-Cola.”

Artists Janet Echelman and Aaron Koblin –creative director at Google’s creative lab — have collaborated to create ‘unnumbered sparks‘, a monumental interactive sculpture in the sky, billowing silently overhead visitors to downtown Vancouver, Canada. The ethereal net spanning 745 feet between buildings shimmers with a vibrantly colored glow, punctuating the urban landscape as it floats above ground. Dynamic digital characteristics embedded within the aerial mesh define an engaging relationship with the viewer. Visitors with smartphones and tablets are able to paint vivid beams of light across the sculpture at a massive scale: small movements made on phones become nearly hundred foot long trails on its surface. When you look at the sculpture, you’re looking at a web browser. The team explains ‘the lighting on the sculpture is actually a single fullscreen google chrome window over 10 million pixels in size.’ Choreographed by the public in real time through their mobile devices, the soaring form becomes a crowd-controlled visual on a massive canvas. ‘Unnumbered sparks’, which premiered at the TED conference’s 30th anniversary.
