In the hands of Joe Casey and Jim Mahfood we get Miami Vice: Remix and here is a preview of issue #2 out this week.

When we last left Crockett and Tubbs (still Miami’s coolest cops) they were in a sticky situation with some South Florida zombies high on Miami Bath Salts. Now they’re in hot pursuit of the dealer of this horrific nose candy, which leads them to punching cracked-out monsters in the face while zooming through Florida Turnpike traffic. Just another day at the office! But while one situation explodes, another simmers; someone who’s got serious beef with our $600-suit-wearing-heroes claims that Crockett’s got a serious debt to pay — and they’re here to collect!

<![CDATA[archiemcphee: Anthropomorphism + Wordplay = AwesomeWe’ve...]]>


Anthropomorphism + Wordplay = Awesome

We’ve already got a soft spot for anthropomorphic food so we love these playful minimal ink and acrylic illustrations created by Cape Town, South Africa-based illustrator and designer Jaco Haasbroek. From a bellicose birthday cake to what may be the world’s official all-purpose seal of approval, the series depicts adorably personified Food, Objects and Animals either speaking or captioned by painfully cute puns and other sorts of wordplay.

This is the first poster for the horror zombie drama Maggie. The movie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a midwestern farmer who is trying to protect his daughter (Abigail Breslin) after she becomes infected by a zombie virus that is threatening the world.

The movie was directed by Henry Hobson, and it looks like a refreshingly compelling zombie drama that is unlike many of the other zombie projects we are seeing developed today.

<![CDATA[New Trailer for the Highly Acclaimed Sundance Film DOPE]]>

We've got a new trailer to share with you for a film called Dope, which was one of the most buzzed about movies at Sundance this year. I didn't get a chance to see it myself, buy you can read Eli's glowing review for it here, in which he sates:

The young leads — Shameik Moore as Malcolm, Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel) as Jib, and Kiersey Clemons (Eye Candy) as Diggy — have incredible chemistry, and that magic shines brighter as their characters navigate through their increasingly bizarre situation and are forced to get rid of the drugs, one way or another. 

The movie looks absolutely fantastic, and I'm very much looking forward to finally seeing it for myself. I really wish I wouldn't have missed the opportunity at Sundance, but thankfully it's going to get a decent sized theatrical release. Here's the synopsis:

Malcolm is a high school geek with a high-top fade, carefully navigating life in The Bottoms, one of the toughest neighborhoods in Inglewood, California. He and his fellow outcasts share a voracious appreciation for all things ’90s hip-hop, opting to sport Cross-Colours and Z. Cavariccis at the risk of being clowned at school. He dreams of attending Harvard, but first he has to make it home every day. When a drug dealer takes a shine to Malcolm and invites him to his birthday party, Malcolm’s crew is swirled into a hilarious blender of offbeat characters and bad choices where redemption can only be found in Bitcoin.

The film was written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa (Brown Sugar, Our Family Wedding), and it landed itself a summer release date of June 19th.

<![CDATA[A history of the Cabbage Patch Kid craze]]> From Vice's American Obsessions video series, a piece on the Cabbage Patch doll craze of the 1980s.

The idea for the Cabbage Patch doll was brazenly stolen from the original creator by Xavier Roberts, whose Wikipedia entry currently begins:

Xavier Roberts (born October 31, 1955, Cleveland, Georgia), misappropriater of Cabbage Patch Kids, is an American artist, businessman, thief and asshole.

His profile also states that he went on to create a series of bear toys called The Foreskin Bears. LOL. (via devour)

<![CDATA[Journey Coming To PlayStation 4 In Mid 2015]]> journey-game-screenshot-1-b

Journey is one of the best PlayStation 3 exclusives ever made. The game came as a breath of fresh air to a stuffy AAA dominated space, speaking to people on levels deeper than games usually aim for.

If you missed it last generation and are now in possession of a PlayStation 4, rejoice, you’ll soon be able to try out the game. The title is being ported onto the new generation console with 1080p, 60 frames per second gameplay. It’s expected to land this summer, and will even be available in physical form, as part of the ThatGameCompany trilogy. This will include FlOw and Flower as well as Journey.

If you’ve never played these games, I really encourage it. They are simple, but deeply artistic experiences.

<![CDATA[All Of Cerebus, All For Free, All On Tumblr, All With Permission]]> tumblr_nmyef7nruI1urqcyao1_1280

Cerebus is one of the greatest comic book works in the history of humanity. Initially a funny animal parody of Conan The Barbarian, it became a comic about politics, religion, life and death. And parodying anything that geek and pop culture was obsessed with along the way. Running for 300 issues, for twenty-five years, it is 6000 pages long.

And it is running, with permission of Dave Sim, one page a day on Tumblr. The first two pages are up. If completed it will take twenty years to conclude. Tumblr may not even be around that long. Just consider it a daily comic book strip. Oh and it will get really good in about a year-and-a-half…

And if you can’t wait, there’s always Cerebus Downloads...

Karaoke can often be a blast, especially if the drinks are flowing, but it can always be immensely challenging and nerve-wrecking being put on the spot to belt our your own version of a pop classic or two. It's hard enough to stay in time and remember the words but when it comes to singing in tune in front of your friends, the pressure levels often get cranked up another notch.

But that pale in comparison to the unique Japanese gameshow 'Sing What Happens' - the premise is pretty simple, male contestants attempt to belt out their best renditions whilst an attractive girl gives them a hand job.

Talk about a major distraction.

In order to win the show, contestants have to ensure they hit the correct notes perfectly - no easy tasks when you're on the brink of having an orgasm.

Each contestant tries in vain to hold out for a long as they can, but as the action unfolds things just keep getting funnier and funnier until they reach breaking point.

Make no mistake, there's some seriously stiff competition on display.
