Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend

mpw-17961

WARNING - Rating: 18+
(This cult classic anime is extremely graphic and will disturb ALL viewers)

Demons, known as the Machi, have begun appearing in Japan as well as Man-Beasts, known as the Jujinchi. Two siblings of the Jujinchi, Amano and Megumi Jyuko, have come in search of The Overfiend within a young student named Tatsuo Nagumo, a shy lech, who they believe may bring the Jujinchi, the Machi and human race into a promised eternal kingdom based on an old Jujinchi prophecy.

Nagumo has begun a relationship with a young cheerleader by the name of Akemi Ito after she is raped by a demon. She begins to understand the circumstances behind Nagumo’s destiny. But opponents have begun to conspire against Nagumo, Akemi, and the Jyukos. Could The Machi, Jujinchi, and human race, see the beginning of a New World, or witness The End of The World as we know it?

BabyMetal

babymetal_by_deathgrowl-d6woo4i

In 2010, BABYMETAL was formed a unit on the theme of “Kawaii METAL” (The meaning is mix of J-POP and HEAVY METAL). The music video of “DOKI DOKI☆MORNIG” was published on YouTube, then access from overseas flooded with many comments shocked, and its presence have spread not only in Japan but also to overseas such as North America, South America, Europe and Asia. BABYMETAL is starting to receive attention beyond the idle and beyond Japan, and they are pursuing the road of the only one instead of the number one.

Jordan Wolfsons Terrifying Animatronic Dancer at David Zwirner

JWDZSHOW2014_install_22_web-600x400 JWDZSHOW2014_install_36_web1-600x400 o-ANIMATRONIC-DOLL-facebook

Though animatronics were developed by Walt Disney in the 1960s, there is nothing Disney-esque about the animatronic doll currently on view at David Zwirner Gallery. Dancing before a large mirror in a private room in the gallery, which visitors can enter two at a time, this work by 33-year-old artist Jordan Wolfson is dressed in a scanty white body suit, thigh-high patent leather boots, and has dirt marks across her body. When she locks eyes with you, it’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced, and you kind of want to run.

“My mother’s dead. My Father’s dead. I’m gay. I’d like to be a poet. This is my house.” These words seem to emanate from the doll, but the voice is that of a man—Wolfson’s recorded voice, in fact. Adding further tension to the display, the doll’s face is obscured by a dark “witch” mask that renders the doll somewhat threatening while you’re simultaneously drawn in by her seductive movement and her gaze. The doll, which has been designed with the help of a special effects studio in Los Angeles, comes replete with facial recognition technology so that when you look at her, she looks right back at you while she shimmies.

The overall effect of the sexy doll in the witch’s mask is similar to that of Wolfson’s videos, some of which feature animated characters that have both alluring and repellent qualities. Animation, masks, a 2011 video, features a stereotypical Shylock-esque Jew who alternates between flipping through a Vogue magazine and “speaking” directly to the viewer, though the speech heard is a sexy dialogue between a man and a woman.

The exhibition, which runs through April 19, at David Zwirner’s 19th Street compound, also features Wolfson’s video Raspberry Poser—which is making its New York debut—along with several sculptural wall works composed of inkjet prints and bumper stickers. As for the doll, call ahead. Time slots must be reserved.

Titanfall SXSW Launch

titanfall-sxsw-launch-recap-10 Titanfall img-0595 img-1180 img-1317 20kuvaatitanfallin_1067954

SXSW (South by Southwest) has expanded beyond its roots in music over the past few years, attracting a diverse array of people to become an annual hub of art, technology, and other cultures. Microsoft and Respawn sought to treat its gaming fans to a once-in-a-lifetime experience over the week, launching its high-profile Titanfall game in Austin. The game, which takes cues from everywhere from Gundam Wing to Blade Runner, seeks to strike a balance between multiplayer experience and immersive individual play. During our time in Austin, lead artist Joel Emslie courteously gave us his interpretation on the significance of Titanfall. With the event having something for just about everyone — including a performance by Childish Gambino

Guys Base Jump Off the World Trade Center

Screen-Shot-2014-03-24-at-8.50.33-PM-660x787

The only way this video could be cooler was if the guy was a master thief (who only takes from awful, Captain Planet-esque bad guys) and was making a daring escape after stealing a priceless piece of art. Apparently, they were caught and arrested within the last week (six months after the jump) and charged with “burglary, reckless endangerment and jumping from a structure.” But all in all, just CRAZY.

Shark Attacks diver in the Cayman Islands

03-shark_attack

Caribbean Reef Shark encounter in the CAYMAN ISLANDS. Just east of Frank Sound. We were Lion Fish Culling when the shark came out of no ware. It scared the crap out of me. Filmed on my GoPro 3 camera. We were in about 70′ of water when the shark encounter occurred.

I want to make it clear that I am hunting lion fish to help protect the reef from the destruction that they cause. The shark was acting in his natural environment. I have no ill will toward him and will get back in the water and continue to protect the reef for future generations. I would strongly encourage anyone out there to donate to REEF.org or other organizations to help protect our reefs, Sharks and the beautiful creatures in them.

How Wolves Change Rivers

wolves_wcth02-640x396

For more from George Monbiot, visit http://www.monbiot.com/ and for more on “rewilding” visit http://bit.ly/1hKGemK and/or check out George Monbiot’s book Feral: rewilding the land, the sea and human life: http://amzn.to/1fjgirx

NOTE: There are “elk” pictured in this video when the narrator is referring to “deer.” This is because the narrator is British and the British word for “elk” is “red deer” or “deer” for short. The scientific report this is based on refers to elk so we wanted to be accurate with the truth of the story.

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.” – John Muir

When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable “trophic cascade” occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this movie remix.

Narration from TED: “For more wonder, rewild the world” by George Monbiot. Watch the full talk, here: http://bit.ly/N3m62h

The History of the Nike Air Max

nike-air-max-day-summary
nike-air-max-1-air-bag

The release of the original Nike Air Max made the invisible visible, runners were hooked and the world was intrigued. What began as an experiment in cushioning by engineer Frank Rudy evolved into something more thanks to Mark Parker and designer Tinker Hatfield. The introduction and development of visible Air altered the future of footwear. “Tinker’s background in structural design allowed him to architect a new dynasty in sportswear,” says Nike. “Postmodern Parisian towers, with transparent walkways and bold pops of color, would prove instrumental to the final Air Max design.”

Honoring 27 years of greatness, Nike has declared March 26 to be Air Max Day. To celebrate the special occasion, the sportswear giant will be releasing the Nike Air Max 1 “Air Max Day” edition. For more on the history of the Air Max be sure to visit the brand’s official website.
