Weird pop culture intersectionality today upside my head. While Googling for a Snow Crash cover to post over in my Sony vs. Oculus Rift post, I stumbled across these gorgeous covers for the Japanese edition of the novel. The weirdest part is that it was on also-personal-hero-alongside-Stephenson Brandon Graham’s…LiveJournal. The Internet is strange, man.
Check the covers after the jump.
Okay maybe I’ll stow my disdain for everyone in the New 52 rocking chitin armor. Just this once! It totally doesn’t anything to do with a beautiful, powerful woman rocking some. (It has everything to do with this. Cut me some slack.)
There’s a good chance that Sony’s dropping the reveal on their VR headset this month. Getting ready to throw down with the Oculus Rift. In a battle of “Hey, We Took Thing X and Put It in First Person! Wild!”
I am not familiar with Kim Soo Hyun, but soon all the fanboys in the world such as myself shall be quite acquainted. The actress has been cast in Avengers 2: Age of James Spade. And more interestingly, Marvel ain’t talking about her role. MUCH INTRIGUE.
This new Star Wars flick certainly ain’t the usual J.J. Abrams enterprise. Leak after leak after leak. One can only imagine the sort of sphincter-tightening anger and fear he’s feeling on a weekly basis as new details dribble out of the Episode VII anus. The latest? Oh just what Carrie Fisher will be up to for six months.
Ho-hum. Another day, another gorgeous piece of artwork from Fiona Staples. The artist’s latest efforts are for the upcoming MoCCA Arts Fest in NYC.
Hit the jump for the full regalia.
Stanley Kubrick passed away fifteen years ago? Dios mio, mang. Getting old. The rickety bones. Mortality’s Scythe is looming, with incontinence already kicking in. I shall apply the momentarily salve of this glorious tribute to Stanny from Alexandre Gasulla upon my rotting corpus, knowing I’ll join Kubrick in the Ether someday (soon?).
One of the surest signs that you’ve made it as a cultural touchstone is when you begin getting parodied into Oblivion. It appears that True Detective has reached such status. ‘Cause True Detective has taken more than its fair share of (amusing?) potshots this week in anticipation Sunday’s finale. The latest one is courtesy of Joel McHale and Jim Rash of Community (and other sundry successes) fame.
The lovely Nadya Sonika has been featured here before. This time she is returning as DC’s Zatanna. It’s a pretty rad-ass get-up, makes me wish I had more of a clue as to the character’s background. She speaks backwards to cast spells, but after that…I’m lost. If only there was a device on the Internet for searching?! Alas. Anyways.
Hit jump for the cosplay.
