The Good Ol’ Cajun Shrimp.


Cajun shrimp, regardless the backdrop, doesn’t matter the pan it’s in, no matter who takes the photo, Cajun Shrimp is one of those dishes, that, regardless of its simplicity in nature, is exquisitely intricate. We would write a whole piece about it… but there’s not too much to say. So here’s a recipe for the physical equivalent to “Netflix & Chill”.

Who You Gonna Call?


Sony Pictures has released an international trailer for “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”, and while a few shots are recycled from previous promos, this teaser comprised almost entirely of new footage. When the review embargo lifted last week, many critics took issue with how much Afterlife relied on fan-service and revisiting well-known scenarios from the original movies, and the marketing team appears to have taken this on board… by dialling the nostalgia all the way up to 11 for this new trailer. We hear an updated version of the classic theme as our young heroes chase spooks in the Ecto-1, there are several mentions of Egon (the late Harold Ramis), and the return of one of the first film’s Terror Dogs. In fact, right at the end we get a recreation of the scene in which Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) discovers one of the preternatural pooches in his closet. While this will likely prove to be divisive, we have a feeling a lot of Ghostbusters fans are going to lap it up.

The Batman With A Bat Man.


Since last year after the first official look at Robert Pattinson as “the Batman”, It’s been the scourge of the internet… this growing infectious plague of fake “Trailer 2”s all over the internet.  They were comprised of shots from other Batman films, (mainly the “dark knight” trilogy among other things, and while we respect anyone doing any editing and having the biscuits to blast their work on YouTube, we just wanted a real second trailer. Thanks to the DC Fandome event, we finally got one.  From the incredible transformation that Collin Farrel made into ‘The Penguin’ to Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, to the incredible shots of Batman being crop dusted with bullets and walking at leisurely pace to disarm and destroy his enemies… this is the second look we’ve been waiting for. The second trailer also renews faith that although the cast may be new, we never have to worry that the Batman fans of the world will ever run out of stories to bring to screen.  Check out an additional trailer breakdown from friend of the blog Mr. Sunday Movies, just incase speculation is your thing.

Magical Chocolate?


This Brownie Stuffed Magic Chocolate Ball with Caramel is a decadent dessert when hot caramel melts the chocolate to reveal a brownie and fresh raspberries too! Our salted caramel sauce is the perfect finish to this magical dessert that looks oh so fancy but is so easy to make! You can also pour hot fudge on top of this magic chocolate ball which is more common but I say why not have caramel and fudge.  Check out the crash course/at home version of the recipe below… for those of us who aren’t gourmet chefs.

Caity Costa – Butterfly.


Caity Costa has been on the music scene for quite some time, be it in music videos, on magazine covers, or just straight up in your ears with a flurry of solo songs and collaborations with artists all over. Now she’s on the scene once again with her newest title track “Butterfly”, just one quarter of the Butterfly EP, being released all throughout the month of October. The song ‘Butterfly’ itself finds a truly unique and refreshing blend between sultry R&B singing, and an incredible spoken word poem embodying her thoughts and feelings. Its a joy to listen to, and the song embodies the emotions of many, while its presentation has only been approached by few. The wonderfully executed track was produced by Bat Area native Joe Major, and is available for a listen by just clicking the cover above, and hear a sample in the promo video below.

Give Peace A F*cking Chance.


We know from The Suicide Squad’s post-credits scene that A.R.G.U.S. wants Smith to help them “save the f*cking world,” but we’re still not sure what kind of threat the team will be facing. Gunn wasn’t giving anything away when it comes to plot specifics during a recent interview, but he did reveal why he settled on Peacemaker for his own spinoff series.

“At the end of The Suicide Squad, [Idris Elba’s] Bloodsport learns a lot. He’s a better person than he was at the beginning. A lot of the characters are much better than they were at the beginning, and Peacemaker has a lot to learn,” explained the filmmaker. “It’s that ability to learn that for me makes him a little bit more likable. His blindspots in some places are pretty terrible, and in some places are him being ignorant. I think that’s an important distinction to make as well. He is open at the same time, sometimes.”

Cena also commented on his imminent return to the role, joking that “it is definitely in my contract to lose a fight in every project I do and definitely to be in a scene with a CGI animal.” At the time, we thought this might be referring to the return of Ratcatcher 2 and Sebastian or maybe even Weasel or King Shark, but it’s since come to light that Smith will be given a pet sidekick of his own: Eagle-y the eagle! 

The New ‘Resident Evil’ Is Here.


Set to 4 Non Blondes’ “What’s Up” (for some reason), this teaser definitely indicates that the movie will take more influence from the video games than the previous franchise, as we see the likes of Claire, Leon and Jill facing off with zombies, devil dogs, lickers, and various other creatures as they attempt to find a way out of the besieged city. Gamers are also sure to recognize some of the locations, and director Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down, The Strangers: Prey at Night) does seems to have at least made an effort to replicate the dark, grimy chills of the games, but is this really the Resident Evil movie fans have been waiting for? Check out the trailer for yourselves below and let us know what you think.

The Saves Are Untitled.


The artist known as “Untitled Save” hails from Porto, Portugal, and has developed a fantastically unique yet simple style of artwork fit for any frame. Merging traditional and classic artists with modern stylings may not be the newest concept, but the way it’s done is key. These blends of figures like Marlyn Monroe, Mona Lisa, and even Salvador Dali are transposed onto contemporary templates. By criss crossing different photos, paintings and drawing Untitled Save creates all new delineations that are just plain awesome to behold.

Kicked in The Digital Balls.


If you take away the heroics of the the United States women’s national soccer team, soccer – football to the rest of the world – remains a blip on the radar in the United States. But while domestic interest languishes, the game’s global appeal grows, including creative branding and gear like the Adidas Capitano Ball, “digital age” inspired soccer balls embellished with printed circuit board designs.

The TPU covered and machine-stitched construction ball also sparkles with metallic incandescent film, adding to the tech-spirited piece of sporting gear. Available in black, white, and a bright “solar red” variation, these stylized, eye-catching designs are intended for casual play and training, and priced accordingly at just $20 (a surefire goal in the holiday gift idea department if your recipient enjoys the global game.). Two additional graphic designs are also available for the same price.

It’s A Hawkeye Holiday.


As the holiday season nears, and the Disney MCU content runs dry, many of us were reminded of a Disney + show that we never knew was in the works in the first place. Jeremy Renner returns as the title character Hawkeye in what appears to be quite an interesting, jovial sub-story that is far from the social commentary and time bending, universe ending plots of previous Marvel shows. This seems to be quite a welcome change to the Marvel trajectory, and looks quite like a small self contained story worth watching. Check out the tailer below.

Disney x Star Wars = Star Wars Land?


On Christmas morning, Disney shared a behind-the-scenes update on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the massive 14-acre new Star Wars-themed land opening in Disney’s Hollywood Studios next year. But if you were too busy to sit through the entire show for your sneak peek, Disney has now shared the video online.

The video features brief commentary from some key figures responsible for bringing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to life. “It will be jaw-dropping and incredibly emotional to walk into the land for the first time,” promises Carrie Beck, VP of Lucasfilm Story Group. “To actually be standing there amongst the buildings, amongst the ships, and have this feeling that it is all real. That it has been brought to life. And it is right there in front of you – it’s overwhelming.”

The behind-the-scenes video also features more details and updated footage from Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the two attractions that will be featured in Galaxy’s Edge. While we’ve known for a while now that Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will put guests in the cockpit of the fastest ship in the galaxy, the Rise of the Resistance ride has been a little more mysterious. The video finally sheds light on what park guests can expect from “the most epic attraction” Disney has ever built.

The New ‘Men In Black’ Is Here.


Sony Pictures has just dropped the first trailer for Men In Black International, and it looks like a damn good time.  The trailer gives us a much better idea of what to expect from the plot, as it’s revealed that Tessa Thompson’s character actually tracks down MIB after learning of the top-secret agency’s existence 20 years prior.  After ingratiating herself to Agent O (Emma Thompson), she’s given the moniker Agent M and partnered up with Chris Hemsworth (H), who definitely seems to be channeling The God of Thunder from Thor: Ragnarok for this role.

 

This New Pad Might Just Be… reMarkable.


 

We live in a time where we are constantly bombarded with information. Distractions from social media notifications, emails, breaking news and pop up messages have become the norm. Has our love for technology made us blind? Have we lost our ability to focus on what really matters? We have to modify technology before it modifies us.  Check the short two videos below.

The Wonderfully Creative Caity Costa.


Caity Costa and yours truly… (the world famous DJ Storm) had the pleasure of working with one another the other day, and believe me when I tell you that once you that after working in music studios for over a decade, I know talent when I hear it.  Aside from being a pleasureful and peaceful woman, Caity has a deluge of music that neither myself, nor the folks at my shop looking forward to hearing, and working with her on.  Take a gander at some of her photos below, and if you’d love to hear what she has to perform, you can check out all of her work by clicking right here.

Aladdin? AGAIN.


I do have to say, I love this Disney film with all my heart.  I swear… #ScoutsHonor, that Aladdin is one of my all time favorite movies.  Our first look at the new recreation however, leaves me a bit confused.  I know for certain that the re-creations of the classic songs (3 can be heard in this first trailer.) are AMAZING, I’m obsessed with the re-instrumentialzation, and the way that they all blend together, and the voice of the cave is spot on… BUT what makes you need to remake such a classic film?  In younger generations, I suppose this story need to be re-told, but don’t fix what was never broken.  Tell us what you think below… And also Will Smith is playing the Genie, so this is going to be interesting.

Eminem Is Back… Again (AGAIN).


It seems as if Em has taken the Beyonce route, and randomly released a brand new album titled “Kamikaze” out of the wild blue yonder.  The surprise album is getting a cascading effect of social media reviews a bit late, because no one really knew he was going to put it out.  That being said, there are some surprising tracks on the album including one from the ‘Venom’ movie sound track, but this is definitely one to check out.  Leave any comments you may have about this new release below.  And if you’d like to download it, just click here.

Slice (Official Trailer)


There’s a new horror comedy on the way from A24 and first-time director Austin Vesely, and it looks like it could be a blast.  Slice stars Deadpool 2 standout Zazie Beetz and Chance the Rapper as two survivors of an ongoing pizza delivery massacre in a spooky small town, who set out to catch the culprits. Unfortunatly for them, this leads to a conspiracy involving a ghost, a werewolf, demonic possession and a gateway to hell.  The red band trailer definitely has a nice throwback feel, which is only elevated by the presence of Stranger Things actor Joe Keery in a supporting role. Check it out below along with a poster and let us know what you think in the comments.

Don’t Be Afraid To Fall. Duckwrth Is Back.


“Fall Back” may be one of Duckwrth’s finest productions yet.  Before I expand, take a listen to the song below.  Duckwrth as successfully don’t a feature with HIMSELF.  Over an aggressive beat produced by ‘Two Fresh Beats”, the song seems as if features multiple artists based on the pitch and tone of his bars.  But his aggressive nature, and smooth tones in the same song are quite unique, It engages the listener in a way that Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Mad City” do as well.

This Is… (Insert Your Country Here).


Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) flabbergasted the country when he randomly released his incredible video for “This Is America”.  The symbolism, reflections of the current state of the U.S., and the over all tone of the music video is undeniably well thought out, original, and has resonated to not just Americans.  Several artists from all around the world have stepped up to represent the problems in the places that they live.  NOW, not to downplay the plights of other nations, but the similar styles, which are directly bitten from Gambino seem a bit unoriginal, and although the messages are clear, insightful, and informative, after a bit, one would hope that these artists would have found their own way to convey their thoughts. That being said, these “remixes” of ‘This Is America’ are extremely worth taking a listen to.  Between I-NZ bringing light to the state of Iraq post Americas 2003 invasion, or Falz discussing the conditions of current day Nigera, you can search for almost any country you want, you’ll find one of these videos.  Check the method below, listen to the messages.

It’s Time To Break The ‘Glass’.


M. Night Shyamalan just tore the roof off of Hall H with the first official trailer for his highly-anticipated Glass, which will feature the return of both Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price and Bruce Willis as David Dunn. Plus, this time, they’re joined by James McAvoy as Kevin Crumb and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, who reprise their roles from last year’s critically-acclaimed Split. The new trailer, which originally debuted at CinemaCon in April, offers plenty of outstanding footage as Mr. Glass partners with The Beast to wreak havoc on the world, leaving only Dunn and Cooke to find a way to stop them.

Enjoy the new trailer below.

Don’t Call It A Comeback. Deadpool 2 Gets A New Trailer.


From Deadpool in high heels, to decapitation, to even a shot at Black Panther, the red-band trailer for “The Untitled Deadpool Sequel” is hilarious, and NOT for the faint of heart.

The Seamless Screen.


The poor bezel, I wonder what it ever did to us to deserve this hatred, but wow… Humans really dislike them. With every smartphone from last year trying hard to kill the bezel, Asus Rog finally designed a hack that does just that, but it isn’t for phones just yet. The Bezel Free Kit fulfills the dreams of gamers, allowing them to put together three monitors and remove the bezels between each WITHOUT using electricity or batteries). How does it do that? Refraction. The kit comes as two independent strips that can be placed between monitors. It uses a lens that ‘bends’ light in a manner that removes the bezel from view, making it look like you have one continuous screen.

The result isn’t perfect, but it’s enough to make a difference. You still notice the fact that there’s something sitting between screens, and it applies a slight blurred effect to the imagery behind it, making it good for games, but not for productivity. The Bezel Free Kit snaps right on to monitors and comes in three sizes, designed for 24″, 25″, and 32″ monitors, but you’ll need to make sure all your monitors are the same make and size, so that the lens strips can easily mount onto the displays. Scroll down to check out a video of the guys at Verge having a look at it. Wouldn’t it be fun though if your smartphone screen protector could refract light to remove your bezels?

Avengers: Infinity War – Brand New Trailer.


Following the disappointing Superbowl TV spot, Marvel and the Russo brothers have more than redeemed themselves by dropping what will undoubtedly become one of the highest viewed trailers of all time.  Marvel can’t seem to do any wrong.  With the outrageous success of Black Panther, their next MCU entry is destined to do just as well or better.  Check the trailer out below.

The Church House?


DOS Architects have transformed the top two floors of Westbourne Grove Church into a contemporary loft apartment.  Located in Notting Hill, London, England, the Victorian church was originally built in 1853. Traditional architectural elements such as arched windows have been preserved.  The open plan of this 400 square meter (4,305 sq. ft.) modern loft with double height allows transparency. A glass staircase connects the two floors.

Hot Toys has revealed its upcoming figure based on Iron Man’s appearance in ‘Avengers: Infinity War and it provides a detailed new look at Tony Stark’s upgraded armor and the amazing weapons he’ll wield.  Spoilers below…
