I’ve just imported all of my previous blog postings from Blogger and am in the process of editing and categorizing everything.

“At the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, Qatar this week, Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang put on his largest “explosion event” of the last three years, utilizing microchip-controlled explosives to form incredible designs and patterns. The video we’ve embedded of the event is an impressive testament to how a volatile black powder explosion can be controlled and shaped by computer.

Each set of explosions was calculated to paint a different picture. One series of explosions created black smoke clouds that looked like “drops of ink splattered across the sky.

In another, 8,300 shells embedded with computer microchips exploded in a pyramid shape over the desert.” – Quoted from YouTube description of the video.

Akira fans will delight in the latest addition to the world of fashion, taking cosplay to a whole new level – the super-iconic red jacket donned by Kaneda in the famous anime film has been officially replicated for the masses by Bandai Visual – and can be all yours for a measly $1000! 

As part of the “A” Project, every detail has been intricately reproduced, right down to the stitching and hardware and it’s crafted from high-quality oil-softened leather. An alternate black version has also been created for the 30th anniversary of the legendary manga comic created by master Katsuhiro Otomo, with “2019 A.D. 28 Neo Tokyo” replacing the original capsule graphic that graces the back of the jacket. 

Sizes include medium, large, double-large, and triple-large (keep in mind that these are Japanese sizes). So come on, borrow your girlfriend’s credit card, hit up Google translate, and pre-order yours today

No one likes to dress like everyone else these days. TeeFury.com, Qwertee and Nowhere Bad are all great websites that offer limited edition t-shirt designs so you’re sure to be the only one in your community to have these cool threads. These guys usually only offer a small run of their designs for a short period of time – from about 24 hours to just 4 days. You can also submit your designs for consideration. 

You gotta jump on these before they slip away into obscurity – you’ll be the envy of all your hipster friends!
