In order words, if you don’t like drama, you might as well jump off a cliff. It’s apart of living. Those are the facts. Please, don’t go jumping off a cliff. I don’t condone that sort of thing. Just don’t bury your head in the sand. Okay?
Despite X-Men: Days of Future Past not even being released until May 23rd, Fox has just announced their next X-Men film, X-Men: Apocalypse, which is set to premiere on May 27, 2016. The plot for the film has yet to be revealed, but it will most likely feature En Sabah Nur b.k.a. Apocalypse, the 1st, most bad-ass and most dangerous mutant ever born.
Today is truly a sad say. Nelson Mandela, the revered statesman who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead South Africa out of decades of apartheid, has died. I have admired this man for many years and this news really sadens me. Click here for details.
I have one request. If you don’t know who Nelson Mandela is or don’t really care to, resist the urge to pretend you care by sharing this. Don’t be sheep. Have some respect. I will not be apart of your bandwagon crap. If you do care, share at will.
Syfy has just started development of an epic, new TV series based on 2010’s, Legion after being shown the pilot, which blew them away. The characters will also be based on those which appeared in the film. It will be set in a post-apocalyptic world where 2 factions of angels (1 against humanity and 1 defending it) have declared war upon each other. It is speculated that the series will premiere in the Fall of 2014.
The series will star Christopher Egan (Resident Evil: Extinction), Tom Wisdom (300), Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones), Alan Dale (Once Upon a Time), Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Luke Allen-Gale (Captain America: The First Avenger).
Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post–apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25 year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hell-bent on their domination escalates.
According to a Syfy president, Dave Howe, Dominion is a step forward in taking the network into a new direction of science fiction and fantasy based dramas and thrillers. This step also includes the continuation of Defiance and Ron Moore’s upcoming series, Helix.
Drama isn’t a bad thing. There are bad moments to have certain kinds of drama, but drama itself is just a force of nature. Drama is nothing more than the birth pain of change and without change, things die a slow, painful death… figuratively speaking. If you avoid all kinds of drama, things which need to be done will not get done. If it wasn’t for drama, there never would have been a big bang and none of us would be here to bitch about having to keep up with the flow of things.
Today, I had the extreme pleasure of interviewing a talented photographer, make-up artist, digital artist, web designer, and model by the name of Patricia Belda Martinez. She’s also known as Lady Morgana or just Morgana. She’s a multi-talented individual from Spain, but she now lives in the UK. I have been a fan of her’s for many years. She is part of the reason I refuse to limit myself to just one career path, but to find a way to combine multiple skills into a truly rewarding career. Because of her, Aperture Star Creations exists. If I was just a digital artist, I doubt anyone would know my name. Now I have fans all over the world. It’s a truly terrific feeling.
A smoker is little more than a less dramatic suicide bomber. If you smoke around someone who doesn’t like it because they don’t want to be poisoned, that makes YOU the asshole… and a little bit of a terrorist.
It is my honor to present, The Lines, the short film I took part in last month. It’s very short, but good. There wasn’t enough time to have a descriptive story, so much was implied. Due to some kind of an apocalyptic event, people and resources are scarce. Arthur and his little brother, Dakota are on their own, surviving however they can when they encounter an old friend (Ed), played by yours truly. Originally I was going to die in my sleep of some unnamed illness, but the crew changed their minds and decided that a happier ending was best. The world is still a mess, but their together and have learned to make the best of it. The film takes place around Christmas time.
So, what is it? It kind’a looks like a light grid cycle merged with a can of Monster. No, what is actually is, is the fascinating and yet horrifically uncomfortalbe looking Kawasaki J Three Wheeler EV. It also looks damn near impossible to steer as there are two front independantly turning wheels, each attached to their own handle bar. There is also the fact that it’s just too wide to cut through lanes, which is pretty much the most amazing thing about motorcycles in general.
According to Kawasaki, the J is electric and powered by a nickel-metal hydride gigecell battery. That’s the large glowing piece you see in the center, which slightly resembles some kind of a warp reactor. I’m sorry, but I’d be the last guy you’d see mounting something that looks like it could send me off to Borg space.
This is just a concept model, which was unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. It is not for public sale and most likely will never be. Only a fraction of concept vehicles get chosen for mass production each year and typically, the less interesting ones get chosen as flash usually scares people. The truth is, the flashier vehicles look, the less functional they tend to be.
This is the blooper reel for Constant Angel, the 2nd full length feature I’ve acted in, but the 1st to be finished and released to the public. We really are a silly bunch. I appear a few times, but only 2 of the bloopers are mine.
