Hard to tell, how many of you do remember the game called battletoads. When I first time played this game with my old faithful 8-bit NES. Sure the game was a brand new and let’s be honest, the games at that time wasn’t so stunning as they are now, but MY GOD I was stunned about the goofiness and all the funny actions related stuff with this game was filled.
I have been waiting the remake from this game, but I’m still waiting..
Death of the iron man was HUGE deal to me. I just love the character and it’s really hard to understand why the directors took him away from the big screen.
Of course Russo brothers will bring the character back, not with Robert but somehow.
It would be madness to ditch character that big from the movie screen.
There is a new Flash movie where they bring back OG-Batman. How great is that. Sadly We have lost the one and only Adam West, but perhaps there is a sneak peek for other version of bats.
This “multiverse” trend in movies is a great way to make movies. I love the idea where you can bring back those lost characters from the past.
Still I’m quite sure that we will see movie with joker in some point. Only thing what I’m waiting is Joker / Quinn couple. With some twist of Peacemaker would be nice.
Yesterday was party called “Vappu” in here. I’m quite sure, it’s some sort of Labor Day celebration.
I really don’t have place to celebrate this party.
I have three kids and 11 out of ten people of Finland gets shitfaced!
If you have kids and want to cook something with friends, this is the wrong day.
You have to get hammered, it’s the only way! It’s kind of sad, because I often find myself having a best time of my life with my family. I really don’t have to be drunk to have fun, although I don’t need fun to get drunk.
That was deep man.
Labor Day’s broad roots in the Labor movement are clear: President Grover Cleveland signed legislation on June 28, 1894, designating Labor Day a national holiday in the U.S. as a peace offering following a deadly railroad workers’ strike.
But exactly who should count as the “founder” of Labor Day, which is celebrated on the first Monday in September, has been the subject of debate since the 1890s.
After reading this, I still don’t understand the reason why we celebrate. I’m a working class, should I thank someone or what?
I’m so confused right now.
Perhaps these ”old” party dates just Would be better to take of the calendar. I sure know How to have fun without some random day called Labor Day or whatsoever.
Have you ever thought, how many “special” days there is on the normal calendar? There is plenty, I can tell you that.
Maybe someday would be time to update all the calendars, just saying.
There might be few outdated celebration days, which would be easily erased and no one would never missed them.
When I was teen, almost every at my school listened Metallica.
Not me, my favorite bands at the time was Slayer, Anhrax, Megadeth, Manowar and Sepultura.
Sure I did listen also Metallica but not quite much. After Battery album I started to listen more.
These days I just love Metallica.
Younger me spend much time at the library music section, mostly because I wanted to copy those album covers.
Halloween and Manowar both had so cool cover art at the time. There was many bands that I did never listened, but few of those not so mainstream bands got my attention with the cover art.
I did have only cassette player at home and the cover art of those were not so cool as the LP covers were.
I still remember the first CD that I bought, it was Pantera - Vulgar display of power.
Main reason was the blue skull on the cover. When I played it first time, I was blown away. It’s still one of my favorites these days and every time I hear something from Pantera, no matter where I salute with my horns up.
I’m pretty sure that younger me would be SO INSPIRED about the modern bands like Slipknot.
This new Metallica album is one to check. It’s like weird adaptation of country rock with the speed metal twist.
Drumming on this album is something special, I don’t know why I love it, but it gets me on the headbangers feeling. This album will be on my party list, no doubt about it.
I have few books from Metallica, but those are made by some rock reporters and I like to read autobiography of the persons of themselves.
I have been waiting a book from James Hedfield himself, but maybe he is not ready yet.
My working hours are always from Monday to Friday.
After long week when Friday finally arrives, you can just kick your boots in the corner and start doing things you love.
At weekends I have time to do art, play music, watch movies and spend time with fam and friends.
Sure I do these things at week days, but mainly after the hobbies and exercises.
Sleeping is really important part of life, but I have always been nocturnal being.
I don’t even remember when I have started to sleep before midnight. Every day to me is a day with art. I’m creating all kind art, mostly drawings.
Night time is perfect time for creativity. My inspiration kicks in around 22pm.
In some cases I have to “kill” inspiration before I can sleep.
It’s really hard thing to do, but necessary when you’ll have to wake up early.
In perfect world, I would let my inspiration guide me trough the day.
One of my favorite things to create is, R.F styled drawings for all those hot rod lovers out there.
R.F (Rat Fink is one of several hot rod characters created by artist Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, one of the originators of Kustom Kulture of automobile enthusiasts. Roth conceived Rat Fink as an anti-hero to Mickey Mouse.)
Funny style to draw and it’s so close to my own style. ”Big Daddy” has always been so big influence at my work.
Back to the original idea.
I love holidays and weekends.
“Mini-holidays” has been my kind of way to survive in this chaotic world surrounding us.
To me, it takes only few hours and absolutely non jet lag when I’m turning my weekday clock to the holiday clock. At first day, no matter if the holiday is one day or month.
I’m immediately at turn around point.
It takes zero effort to be on the other time zone.
In a blink of an eye, I can toss myself in to the road of inspiration.
The name of the Easter Friday in Finland is called by name “pitkä perjantai” (long Friday) and it comes from the Swedish translation “långfredag”
Back in the days it has been called “Long Friday” in England, but over the years the name have adapted to the “Good Friday”
Many Romance languages, Neo-Latin and Latin languages it’s called “holy Friday” like in France “Vendredi saint” and in Germany “Karfreitag” this actually highlights the word “Kar” which is old Germany and means sorrow.
Slavic languages uses the “great Friday” For example, in Estonia it’s “suur reede”
So many ways to say it, but “Good Friday” works for me.
Perhaps in the time the name will change to the “Perfect Friday” or maybe even to “AWESOME FRIDAY”
I prefer the “EPIC FRIYAY!” *woop woop
If I do remember right the meaning off this day has something to do with the one who died on the cross. Even the church color today is BLACK. In the church they use to assemble five roses to the altar, symbolizing the blood of the Christ.
After all it’s the day of joy, because all the sins are gone…
I’m not quite sure about that anymore, but hey… what do I know.
I just got stuck with name of the day.
Let’s move on to the caricatures of the day.
This got me laughing literally my ass off!
Mr. Bean though that giving the finger in the traffic is all American way to say hello. That movie was so entertaining and fun.
If you stopped wondering about the clown on the featured image, it’s called “Nasse-Uncle” When I was young, he was on TV, quite drunk, swearing and shouting to the kids. He was saying: “Nasse-Uncle is very, very angry” That imitating look and violent behavior felt funny when you were a kid, trying to understand the world of adults.
Clowns might be funny, but these days they are most likely on the killing spree, that’s why I added the knife and darker twist on this caricature.
Actor is no longer with us, Rest In Peace.
Next we have one of the best action directors of the time. I remember when the Gliffhanger movie hit to the theater.
I’ve never felt so excited in the movies, watching someone just climbing on the mountain.
There was one big Gliffhanger-movie prop show, where you could see the plane they used in the movie, all kind of cool gadgets and stuff from the film. There was even a painting which was in the movie and tour guy told that Mr. Stallone had paint it himself. I never forget the moment where special effects guy showed how those bullet holes are made to the airplane. I even touched the parachute they used at the film.
Renny has directed so many great movies and his way of making action movies is unique. Hopefully he will get the next big movie noticed big time.
He is the man who gets recognized just by the hat!
