HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANTHONY MACKIE!

Anthony Mackie a.k.a. Falcon turns 36 today.

Anthony, I hope you have a SUPER day. Like, one down here, one here, one here, one here day.

You may be Captain America’s sidekick, but you’ll always be that gay dude from What’s Your Number (another Chris Evan flick! AND STARLORD’S IN IT!) to me.

CHARGEBOARD - THE SELF-CHARGING LONGBOARD THAT IS ALSO AN IPHONE DOCK

Okay, Chargeboard, I’m gonna’ be straight witchu’. The rebellious skate in me wants to hate you for turning a passionate lifestyle into a gimmicky fad item, but the gadget freak in me really wants to hang out with you. I really like the idea of just riding you until you’re all charged up and then finding a nice spot to relax and dock my gear into your slot. Oh, what’s that? Your dock is only compatible with the iPhone 4 and 4S? But I can still charge other devices through your USB port and pump songs through a 3.55mm audio jack? Idunni, girl. The iPhone 6 just came out and I’m due for an upgrade… You know what, chargeboard? I just remembered there’s this thing I need to go take care of. Don’t worry, I’ll call you when the time is right. I promise.

FINN AND JAKE MECH BY KODYKOALA

From the artist:

What time is??? It’s adventure time!!! I am a huge fan of adventure time, and I thought I would make a few customs based on the show. My first is this Jake Suit 2.0. I know in the cartoon, the original Jake suit is a beefy body suit, but I wanted to do something a little more futuristic. Jake can turn into a car, and bulldozer, so why not a mech suit.

I used a Playschool Lex Luthor Battle suit, and a McDonald’s Finn and Jake to put this together. I had to smooth out some of the details of the original Mech to make it fit more with the cartoon.

STEVEN SODERBERGH RE-SCORED ‘RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK' AND MADE IT BLACK AND WHITE BECAUSE CINEMATOGRAPHY
As a huge cinematography buff, I’ve always been interested in the process of film-making and stuff like this fascinates the bajeezus out of me.
From Soderbergh’s blog:

So I want you to watch this movie and think only about staging, how the shots are built and laid out, what the rules of movement are, what the cutting patterns are. See if you can reproduce the thought process that resulted in these choices by asking yourself: why was each shot—whether short or long—held for that exact length of time and placed in that order? Sounds like fun, right? It actually is. To me. Oh, and I’ve removed all sound and color from the film, apart from a score designed to aid you in your quest to just study the visual staging aspect.

You can watch Steven Soderbergh’s entire re-cut and re-scored version of Raiders of the Lost Ark right here.

TABLETOP RPGS GET CLASSY WITH THE ADVENTURER’S KIT

Designed by Mitch Barchi, the Adventurer’s Kit is what I imagine someone like Mark Twain or Winston Churchill would have played D&D with back in their day.

From the artist: 

The Adventurer’s Kit had been inspired by my lifelong passion for roleplaying games like Dungeons and Dragons or World of Dungeons. My goal was to create a portable kit that anyone could pickup and play a quick, or introductory, roleplaying session with little to no prep time. I created a simple overland map illustration for the lid using the Art Institute of Seattle’s lasercutter. I also included a standard set of polyhedral dice since they are used in many roleplaying systems. Many roleplaying systems also use miniatures, I wanted to include some basic minis for the players. The miniatures featured in these sets are vintage unpainted Heroscape monsters. Also provided is a Moleskine notebook with gridded paper if the player or game master want to map a dungeon or take notes. Each kit also includes a pamphlet for the excellent hack and slash World of Dungeons RPG system. These printouts and other adventure PDFs can be found on Dungeon-World.com for free. With the tools provided in these kits players and game masters alike can enjoy an adventure on the go.

Too bad it’s a one-off. This guy should think about pitching this to Wizards of the Coast for some sort of D&D Collector’s Edition Starter Set idea. I’d totally by the living shit out of something like that.

A THIRD BOONDOCK SAINTS IS HAPPENING
Considering how ill-received the the second one was, I definitely didn’t see this coming.
[[MORE]]
Via Geek Tyrant:

During a fan Q&A on Facebook, the director talked about his plans for a third movie, revealing the title and the plot of the film. The new movie is currently titled The Boondock Saints 3: Legion.
If you watched the sequel, then you already know that it ended with the McManus brothers, played by Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus,in prison. The Boondock Saints 3: Legion will show that while in prison they’ve gained notoriety. He also explained that the story will give us some insight to the McManus brothers’ past and offer a flashback of the very first crime for the criminal killing duo.
The “Legion” part of the title refers to the legions of people who have taken the law into their own hands and become vigilantes just like the now infamous brothers.

I’d personally like to see them bring back Willem Dafoe's character. He was the best part of the first film as far as I'm concerned and it'd be fun to see him come back as a bad-ass vigilante inspired by the McManus brothers who bust them out of prison or something.
As of now, nothing’s set in stone, so it could take who-knows-how-long for this to actually come into fruition.

Today, this film poster for the documentary was released and it’s got me super fucking excited for the movie to actually drop. The poster’s created by the ghoulish Gary Pullin. Super nice design and definitely captures what the documentary entails. Check out a scene from the documentary here.
