‘Iron Fist’ Officially Suits Up.


The marketing for the second season of Marvel’s Iron Fist has now kicked into high gear, as Danny Rand’s sophomore solo outing is set to hit Netflix early next month.  On the heels of the full trailer and a new poster, Netflix has debuted this banner which features Danny (Finn Jones) wearing his proto-Iron Fist costume. Though many fans would much rather see him jump straight into the classic comic outfit, Matt Murdock went through the same process in season 1 of Daredevil and everything worked out just fine. Granted, his all-black ensemble did look quite a bit cooler than this.

Bedrooms By The Tech-Giants?


It’s unlikely that companies like Apple or Facebook will ever foray into designing home interiors, but a little wishful thinking never hurt anybody. In this post we look at conceptual bedrooms, designed with the language and characteristics of 6 of today’s technology giants.  Right above is the conceptual Apple bedroom. Looking like someone cleared out an Apple Store and put a bed in there, there’s something very pure and pristine about the interiors. Undeniably Apple, right? Designed to look sensible and straightforward, the room comes with a white interior, a full sized window (or should we call it a bezel-less window?!), and even trees within glass enclosures. Elaborate, opulent, yet clean.

Right above is the conceptual Apple bedroom. Looking like someone cleared out an Apple Store and put a bed in there, there’s something very pure and pristine about the interiors. Undeniably Apple, right? Designed to look sensible and straightforward, the room comes with a white interior, a full sized window (or should we call it a bezel-less window?!), and even trees within glass enclosures. Elaborate, opulent, yet clean.  Then comes Facebook’s bedroom. Using blue to bring a fun-yet-not-garish vibe to the bedroom, the interiors make use of signature facebook elements, from FB reactions, to neon likes, wallpaper made of personalized messages on the left, to even a literal brick wall on the right that reminds you of the time when you “would write on peoples’ walls” on Facebook. Oh, and I love the cheeky wardrobe in the corner with the grey tees.

Everything about Google’s bedroom screams fun. Using Google’s brand colors and going completely nuts with the decor, the Google bedroom is more fun and vibrant than an environment conducive to sleep. Swing, slide, foosball table, and a literal faux grass playground, you’re much more likely to work from home in the Google bedroom.  The Netflix bedroom takes chilling very seriously. A TV with a home theater, stocked refrigerator, lounge-sofa, and a bed that looks oh-so-inviting, you’re bound to stay in bed and binge-watch your favorite shows. The interiors look quite like a theater with low-key lighting and the use of red gives it the signature Netflix flavor. Points if you notice the colorful lights near the window that do a hat-tip to Netflix’s Stranger Things.

Snapchat’s bedroom perfectly captures the whims and fancies of its young demographic. Ridiculously adolescent, the bedroom comes in Snapchat’s shade of yellow, balloons and streamers everywhere much like Snapchat’s flamboyant filters, and a hammock for a bed. Oh, there’s a photobooth too, given how Snapchat and selfies have such a strong relationship.  Lastly we have Spotify, a company so devoted to music that it makes sense the bedroom echoes that feeling too. With graphiti on the wall that literally screams MUSIC, wall-mounted records, a live-karaoke wall that displays lyrics (with 16 speakers on each side) complete with two microphones, and a light-up dance floor, the Spotify bedroom sets the perfect mood for a bedroom party. Besides, you can turn things down a notch too and bust out some sweet tunes as you head to the circular Spotify-logo-inspired bed.

 

The above 6 bedrooms do a pretty spot-on job (maybe too spot-on) of taking the ethos and characteristics of the 6 tech giants and translating them into spaces… a design exercise by the name of Product Semantics that we’ve covered in great detail in the past. There’s no guarantee that these spaces will ever exist, but it’s a wonderful design practice to familiarize oneself with brand languages, product languages, and learn how you can use them to make products (and in this case, spaces) look like they belong to a certain brand family. Hey designers, could we see a few more? Microsoft, Instagram, Whatsapp, Twitter, for starters?

Michael B. Jordan Will Be ‘Raising Dion’.


Netflix is doubling down on the superhero genre and they’re looking to tell original stories outside of their Marvel Netflix shows.  However, they’re turning to a Marvel Studios actor to spearhead their latest project.  Michael B. Jordan will co-star and executive produce a 10-episode series titled Raising Dion.The series will be based on a 2015 short film of the same name, which you can check out below.This short was created by music video director Dennis Liu (Sia – You’ve Changed, Justin Timberlake – Not A Bad Thing) who provided an official statement in a press release.

I started this project many years ago because I wanted to see more diverse representation on film and television and I’m excited to partner with Netflix and MACRO, who I know shares that commitment. More than ever, we need more stories told from different points of view and my hope with Raising Dion is to create a cinematic experience for all families that will lift your spirits and make you laugh and cry.

Take The First Look At Luke Cage.


luke-cage-head

The trailer below may not necessarily be the FIRST look at the mighty Luke Cage, seeing as we got watch him tear things up in Netflix’s Jessica Jones.  There was also a brief teaser of him tearing through a gang of thugs from Comic-Con 2016, which was amazing. This however is the first look at our hero, the story we’ll be getting in the series, and the world he’s be fighting through. So get your first expansive look into the new Luke Cage series.

Daredevil: Season 2, First Reviews.


131415

The first serious look at Daredevil was released a few days ago, however, the first set of reviews for the entire season are starting pour in… Much to no one’s surprise, they seem to be exceedingly positive.  That said, from the sounds of things some of the pacing issues and jarring tonal shifts that became an issue during the Man Without Fear’s first TV outing are also present – but for the most part these initial reactions are very positive.

As expected, Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle/The Punisher seems to have emerged as a highlight, with his take on the vicious vigilante being hailed as a brilliantly complex antagonist the same vein as Wilson Fisk. Another new character we haven’t seen as much of is Elektra, so fans should be very happy to hear that Elodie Yung is highly praised for her incarnation of the seductively skilled warrior in every review so far.

 

DJs! How About ‘Netflix’ for your favorite Vinyl Records?


mag-10Collector-t_CA0-superJumbo

Digital music sales have taken a dive, and meanwhile, vinyl is in the midst of a huge swell that probably won’t let up anytime soon. So what has 2015′s vinyl surge wrought? VYNL, or Netflix for records.

The service is pretty straightforward, although rather than picking particular albums you want to rent, a la Netflix, you select from VNYL’s categories—which are called #vibes. This is where it goes slightly adrift, but we’ll focus on the service because it’s a cool idea. Say you want #work or #danceparty or #betweenthesheets. You pick one of those and each month you get a pack of LPs to play. You can keep what you want for as low as 12 bucks a record, and send back what you’re not feeling at the end of the month.

It’s worth noting, though, that there are other similar services cropping up, such as Vinyl Me, Please, which costs $23-$27 a month. We haven’t tried either service, but the idea behind them seems like a good way to bulk up on vinyl if you’re just getting started And it’s a good thing to get into—probably the most worthwhile way to own music in a world of immediate but downgraded music downloads.

The Netflix Workout Guide.


Netflix

When writer Jessica Catcher put out her TV show workout guide via Mashable.com, we felt fit to add just a little bit to it.  Watching TV doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be a couch potato.  If one were to simply watch their favorite shows, and do some workout exercises while the shows were on, in theory the more TV you watch, the more of a workout you’d get.  Check out our improved list of Netflix shows that could give you some of the best workouts by just following a few simple rules.  Much like a drinking game, when something specific happens, you have a few actions to do… the more you watch, the better workout you get.
