R.I.P. Philip Seymour Hoffman

:: what the heck, this is far to random, unexpected, and sad. Not how I wanted to see someone as awesome as him go…
You were one of the best.

R.I.P. James Avery aka. Uncle Phil on “The Fresh Prince”
:: He also voiced The Shredder in the original Ninja Turtles cartoon.

R.I.P. NELSON MANDELA 18.07.18 − 05.12.13 
I only remember him from when I was a child. Hearing about him on the news, or reading about him in school books. How he worked really hard to help a lot of people. He was like, another Ghandi or Mother Theresa in my eyes. I don’t know much about his recent life, but I know he was a perfect example of how one person can change the world.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT!

R.I.P. Tom Clancy
:: The man behind movies like The Hunt For Red October, Clear And Present Danger, and The Sum Of All Fears…games like Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, and Rainbow Six…and author of countless military books, made famous to me by my Dad. The man was legendary in every field of media. He launched works that not only changed entertainment, but our view of the world we live in. I hold him within the ranks of Tolkien, and other authors that created worlds that we now just play in.

:: Cornerstone Christian Music Festival made the announcement that the beloved farm on which they have held their intense event has finally been sold off. If you’re wondering what Cstone Fest is; it was my favorite place on Earth, the happiest time for me not just as a person of faith, but as a music lover.

1. R.I.P. LUCASARTS [ComingSoon.net]
Looks like Disney’s second move, after buying StarWars, was to shut down the videogame side of the company. So now, instead of creating their own games, they’re going to have other studios come in while LA takes on more of a Producers role? 

2. COULSON LIVES [IGN Video]
Lots of details pertaining to the resurrection of Marvels beloved Agent of SHIELD, and how the show will be taking place after Avengers1. 

3. MARVEL PHASE 2+3 UPDATES
Guardians of the Galaxy [Concept Art]
Captain America: Winter Soldier [New Character]
Ant Man [Test Screen]

R.I.P. SHANNON LARRATT [1973-2013]
Anyone that bumps into me on the street can tell that body modification plays a small role in my life. And anyone that has known me for a significant amount of time knows that my connection to it is more than what’s just on the surface…While I’ve only made “generic” changes to my physical self (tattoos, stretched ears, regular piercings, etc) and while some of those changes might have humorous stories behind them, the purpose and drive behind everything I’ve done stems from from this man…in a way.
Not to get all “tribal” or whatever, I’ll just keep it short by saying that I change my outward-self to reflect my inner-self. A teaching I learned long before becoming a Christian - long before making my actions and words a reflection of my beliefs. 
If you didn’t know, Shannon was the creator of BME, the biggest body modification website/resource out there. He pioneered what many would call crazy, and helped little guys like me through those first questionable steps. In a time when I wanted to learn more about myself, the community he started was there to help. While my life has taken me in a different direction, his positive outlook on life and overall way of living has stayed with me…
"The fundamental question in becoming publicly modified is a question of finding a balance between how free you want to be and how hard you want to work. The more free you are, the more responsibility you have to take care of yourself. The more you blend back into the crowd, the less freedom you have, but the ‘easier’ life gets. But is it really your life if you’re not controlling it?" 
I think more than ever that message can ring truth into young people wanting to latch onto the heavily tattooed/pierced craze. 
Life is short, live it. Thank you, you’ll be missed.

1. RIP CANADIAN PENNY [TheProvince.com]
Today marks the first official day of the penny’s demise. What are you going to do with your leftovers? 

2. KING RICHARD III FOUND! [LAtimes]
Yup, you know that King that you read about? Turns out his bones were found underneath a parking lot. More accurately the site where an ancient church once stood, is now buried under our feet…creepy…

3. KAYAPO UNDER SIEGE [Official]
This has been floating around a lot, and I don’t know ALL the details, but I know rather than say nothing I’ll keep the conversation going and hopefully truth is found and help is given…

4. HALO ON STEAM? [IGN.com]
Apparently Valve has registered for three Halo titles to become a part of the Steam community. While last week it was reported that this meant the games were finally coming to PC, now it’s going back to just a strong rumor (would be a sweet one!) 

R.I.P. NINTENDO POWER 
∆ The final issue of this iconic magazine will be printed for December 2012. It’s a sad day for a guy like me, who grew up with the weekend routine of running to the local library, after Saturday morning cartoons, to learn about the newest games. This was pre-internet, when the only way to get previews of new games was to pick up a zine. There were no trailers, new leaked info, and no need to worry about spoiler alerts. Each issue would have cheats/tricks for the games you loved, a sneak peak at games to come, and killer poster featuring that months start character! I guess this is a perfect example of the changing ways of technology. If even the most influential gamer-mag is forced to close it’s pages, it’s a good indication that eBooks are here to stay. It does look like they’ll be keeping back issues available for sale online, and I’ve heard rumors of possible new issues coming out for tablets…here’s hoping.

They have one more tour, and an Anthology album, and then one of my favorite bands of all time is calling it quits…today is one of those days that the internet would say is full of “the feels”

LMFAO have split up!!! 

My day just went from good to stupendous :D Even though they technically said they “just want to do what’s natural” I have faith that the natural order of life is to not have their trash in my ears ever again…
