BIOSHOCK INFINITE: Songbird Approaches in This Cool Art Homage You might know Alex Garner from his covers for DC Comics (Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, etc) or by some of his other work that has made the rounds, but his latest spotlights the two main protagonists of the much anticipated Bioshock Infinite. Alex is a huge JC Leyendecker fan, and so made this as a sort of homage to some of JC's famous work. The piece itself features Booker and Elizabeth preparing for the inevitable onslaught of the Songbird, with the city of Columbia in the background. The level of detail is amazing, including the golden hued city and even the fading frame that surrounds the picture. I'm a sucker for anything set in this time period, so aesthetically alone this is a home run, but even without that style it's well done.

Quint's Chum Bucket **Contains spoilers** Have you ever had to give a presentation in school or at work, on the heels of someone who had just crushed theirs? How do you follow it up?

Abandoned Suitcases Reveal Private Lives of Insane Asylum Patients If you were committed to a psychiatric institution, unsure if you’d ever return to the life you knew before, what would you take with you? That sobering question hovers like an apparition over each of the Willard Asylum suitcases. From the 1910s through the 1960s, many patients at the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane left suitcases behind when they passed away, with nobody to claim them. Upon the center’s closure in 1995, employees found hundreds of these time capsules stored in a locked attic. Working with the New York State Museum, former Willard staffers were able to preserve the hidden cache of luggage as part of the museum’s permanent collection. “There were many patients in these asylums who were probably not unlike friends you and I have now.”

Cyberpunk derivatives American author Bruce Bethke first coined the term "cyberpunk" in his 1980 short story of the same name, proposing it as a label for a new generation of punk teenagers inspired by the perceptions inherent to the Information Age.[1] The term was quickly appropriated as a label to be applied to the works of William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, John Shirley, Rudy Rucker, Michael Swanwick, Pat Cadigan, Lewis Shiner, Richard Kadrey, and others. Science fiction author Lawrence Person, in defining postcyberpunk, summarized the characteristics of cyberpunk thus: Classic cyberpunk characters were marginalized, alienated loners who lived on the edge of society in generally dystopic futures where daily life was impacted by rapid technological change, an ubiquitous datasphere of computerized information, and invasive modification of the human body.[2] Postcyberpunk[edit] Cyberprep[edit] Cyberprep is a term with a very similar meaning to postcyberpunk.

You may interested in the following related posts : Alan Friedman’s Astonishing HD Photographs of the Sun Shot from his Own Backyard Alan Friedman is a fascinating guy. By day he’s a maker of greeting cards and a lover of hats, but in his spare time he’s a self-proclaimed space cowboy who points a telescope skyward from his backyard in downtown Buffalo, directly into the light of the sun. Using special filters attached to his camera Friedman captures some of the most lovely details of the Sun’s roiling surface. The raw images are colorless and often blurry requiring numerous hours of coloring, adjusting and finessing to tease out the finest details, the results of which hardly resemble what I imagine the 5,500 degree (Celsius) surface of Sun might look like. Instead Friedman’s photos appear almost calm and serene, perhaps an entire planet of fluffy clouds or cotton candy.
