Mad Max – Fury Road – Trailer

Hier der Mad Max-Trailer von der ComicCon. Und der sieht großartig aus! Nach hundert Jahren und einmal Tina Turner endlich wieder Mad Max! Fuck yeah!

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

“Mad Max: Fury Road”—the fourth in the franchise’s history—stars Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) in the title role, alongside Oscar winner Charlize Theron (“Monster,” “Prometheus”) as the Imperator, Furiosa. The film also stars Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) as Nux; Hugh Keays-Byrne (“Mad Max”, “Sleeping Beauty”) as Immortan Joe; and Nathan Jones (“Conan the Barbarian”) as Rictus Erectus. Collectively known as The Wives, Zoë Kravitz (“Divergent”) plays Toast, Riley Keough (“Magic Mike”) is Capable, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”) is Splendid. They are joined by supermodel Abbey Lee as The Dag and Courtney Eaton as Fragile, both of whom are making heir big screen debuts. Also featured in the movie are Josh Helman as Slit, Jennifer Hagan as Miss Giddy, and singer/songwriter/performer iOTA as Coma-Doof Warrior. The cast is rounded out by well-known Australian actors John Howard and Richard Carter, supermodel Megan Gale, Angus Sampson, Joy Smithers, Gillian Jones, Melissa Jaffer and Melita Jurisic.

New York Times goes full Legalization of Marijuana:

Die New York Times startet eine größere Kampagne für eine vollständige Entkriminalisierung und Legalisierung von Marijuana. Ich gehe mal schwer davon aus, dass das auch im deutschen Medien-Mainstream landen wird, die in den letzten Wochen dankenswerterweise auf den Zug aufgesprungen sind.

Judge judges Homegrown-Ninja:

In Hattersheim bei Frankfurt hatte ein Student unter dem Namen „Hanf“ eine Wohnung gemietet und dort Super-Marijuana angebaut. Jetzt ist er wegen der der 16 Kilo Pot zu zwei Jahren auf Bewährung und 4,8k Geldstrafe verurteilt worden. Die Zitate aus dem Gericht sind gold:

Richter am Landgericht in Frankfurt adelte: „Sie haben gute Qualität zu fairen Preisen verkauft.“ […] Sollte der Anbau von Cannabis-Pflanzen irgendwann legal sein, so der Staatsanwalt: B. wäre der richtige Mann dafür. […] „Das war super gebaut“, stellte ein Polizist vor Gericht fest. […] Im Herbst will B. seine Masterarbeit beginnen. Er studiert im Fach „Intelligente Systeme“.

Digging up ET-Cartridges – Atari: Game Over – Trailer

Hier der erste Trailer zur Doku um die geplatzte Gaming-Bubble in den 80ern, für die sie im April die ET-Cartridges in New Mexico ausgebuddelt hatten. Für mich als Atari2600-Besitzer (und ich hatte damals tatsächlich auch das ET-Game und nein, es war nicht das schlechteste Game ever) ist der Film ein absolutes Must-Watch.

In April, history was made in the world’s most famous garbage dump. After years of speculation spanning countless conspiracy theories, the legend was confirmed: unsold copies of the Atari game E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial were found buried deep outside the dusty town of Alamogordo, New Mexico. While the result of the dig itself was big news (after all, E.T. almost single-handedly destroyed the game industry in the early ‘80s), it’s only one part of a much larger story. That story is finally being told in the upcoming documentary “Atari: Game Over.” Featuring interviews with everyone from the creator of the game to the denizens of Alamogordo, this is one story you won’t want to miss. We’ve got our hands on the first trailer for the movie, so check it out above and be sure to watch “Atari: Game Over” when it comes to Xbox this fall.

Fucking Space-Lizards save (for now):

Die russische Weltraumbehörde hat wieder Kontakt zu ihrem Satelliten voller Space-Geckos.

Die russische Raumfahrtbehörde Roskosmos hat den verlorenen Kontakt zu einem Forschungssatelliten mit fünf Geckos an Bord wieder hergestellt. Der Satellit “Foton-M” reagiere wieder auf Signale von der Erde, sagte ein Experte am Samstag in Moskau. Ohne Kontrolle vom Boden wäre das Weltraumlabor in vier Monaten unkontrolliert auf die Erde gestürzt. Den kleinen Echsen drohte der Hungertod nach zweieinhalb Monaten.

Climate Change Tourism on a Luxus Cruiser thru the melted Arctic

climate

Weil in der Arktis mittlerweile ganze Passagen weggeschmolzen sind, ist der Reiseanbieter Crystal Cruisers jetzt auf die Spitzen-Idee gekommen, sauteuren Katastrophen-Tourismus per Luxusliner anzubieten. Für nur 20.000 Dollar kann man den Eisbären dann beim Absaufen zusehen. Bastards.

Because of climate change and the melting of the Arctic, the cruise line Crystal Cruises plans to send passengers on what it bills as the first luxury ship to “traverse the Northwest Passage.” The ship, Crystal Serenity, will set sail beginning in August 2016 on ”a mystical Pacific-Atlantic sea route far beyond the Arctic Circle that for centuries captured the imaginations of kings, explorers and adventurers.” The cruise will last 32 days and fares start at $20,000. […]

Climate-change tourism is an odd proposition. Crystal’s Northwest Passage cruise promises kayaking and tundra treks, up-close sightings of polar bears, narwhals, musk oxen, and caribou. These are encounters, in other words, with the inhabitants and distinctive elements of the world that climate change—the same thing that’s allowing the cruise to take place—is threatening.

Marijuana Weddings

Der heiße Scheiß in Colorado: Marijuana-themed Hochzeiten. Und die CDU denkt immer noch, von einer Legalisierung profitieren nur langhaarige Hippies und stinkende Kiffer.

Earlier this month, when Ellen Epstein arrived at the Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Tabernash, Colo., for the wedding of her friends Lauren Meisels and Bradley Melshenker, she, like the other guests, found a gift bag waiting for her in her hotel room. But rather than a guide to activities in the area or a jar of locally made honey, the canvas bag contained a rolled joint, a lighter and lip balm infused with mango butter and cannabis, along with this note: “We wanted to show you some of the things we love the best.” She knew then that the wedding of her fellow Boulder residents would be just a little different from the ones she had attended in the past.

The Meisels and Melshenker nuptials looked as if their inspiration had come not from the pages of Martha Stewart Weddings but from High Times. All of the floral arrangements, including the bride’s bouquet, contained a variety of white flowers mixed with marijuana buds and leaves. Mr. Melshenker and his groomsmen wore boutonnieres crafted out of twine and marijuana buds, and Mr. Melshenker’s three dogs, who were also in attendance, wore collars made of cannabis buds, eucalyptus leaves and pink ribbons.

Before going into dinner, the guests were given a baby marijuana plant in a ceramic pot with their name and table assignment written on a card in green ink, in the kind of stylish script you might find on a container of artisanal goat cheese. The tables were named after different strains of marijuana, like Blue Dream, Sour Diesel and Skywalker (the groom’s favorite strain). Ms. Epstein, who was seated at Skywalker, said that everyone at her table, where the ages ranged from 40 to 70, passed around a device similar to an electronic cigarette — except that it contained hash oil instead of nicotine. “It didn’t feel weird or bizarre,” she said. “It kind of becomes a new cocktail.”
