Championship Ashe’s splash art is finally here, and it’s really cool – Dot Esports09.07.17

It’s been two weeks since this year’s Championship skin was revealed to be Ashe on the PBE, and since then, we’ve been waiting to see her splash art. After all, the artwork for each Championship skin has been particularly badass.

The wait is finally over, because the art was loaded onto the PBE yesterday, and it’s just as awesome as we were all hoping.

This skin will have stiff competition, though, because between Ashe’s Heartseeker (2014) and Project (2016) skins, players might be checked out on the idea of buying yet another new Ashe skin, especially when Project Ashe is priced a bit high at 1820 RP. That’s essentially a $20 skin.

Still, this skin looks stunning so far on the PBE, and the splash art certainly does it justice. The skin will ship with custom sound effects, ability animations, and a new recall that let’s our favorite Freljordian queen sit atop a badass Worlds-themed throne.

Last year’s Championship Zed set the bar high, and it looks like this year will set it even higher. Remember, when this skin does go live, a portion of the proceeds will be added to the Worlds prize pool, so by buying this skin, you’re directly supporting your favorite Worlds teams.

That, or you’re funding SK Telecom T1 so they can afford Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok for one more year, because, let’s be honest, they’ll probably win again.

Dita von Teese Stepped Out to Fte Caviar at This Lavish Art Exhibition – InStyle09.07.17

September 7, 2017 @ 10:45 AM

Though Dita von Teese isn’t in the business of painting or sculpting, many would call her burlesque performances and perfectly-coiffed appearance works of art.

Thus, her appearance at a lavish New York City event where beauty and art collided on Wednesday nightLa Prairie’s The Art of Caviar exhibitionwas no surprise. Von Teese’s signature pinup girl waves and red lips were present, as was her retro-inspired style.

For the evening, the performer slipped on a floral jacquard dress from Ulyana Sergeenko. The design was fully equipped with a nipped-in waist and tea length.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of its Skin Caviar line, La Prairie commissioned a group of contemporary artists to create works inspired by its groundbreaking technology. That blossomed into traveling The Art of Caviar exhibition, which first showed at Art Basel in Basel. The iconic beauty brand then decided to take its show on the roadshowing the pieces to the public in Paris in July.

Among the artists are Paul Coudamy with his pieces Living Cells and Solid Frequencies, Bonjour Lab’s digital work Moving Pixel, a Cinq Fruitsphotography series, and an audiovisual installation by TremensS.

Art and beauty lovers alike in New York City can see the works in person Thursday, Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 3 West 57th Street. The exhibition will then travel to Hong Kong at the end of the month and Shanghai in November.

Pharrell Has Divulged the Secret to His Perfect Skin – Noisey09.07.17

Right now, you could show me a photograph of Pharrell Williams and I would be quite sure that I was looking at a man in his twenties. Pharrell, however, is actually forty-four years old, and has the smoothest, softest-looking skin in the music industry. People decades younger than him look withered and elderly in comparison.

And while good genes can certainly answer for a lot, there have to be some external factors (it’s well known, for example, that he has his own dermatologist.) Previously, he’s waxed lyrical about the benefits of Glytone Self-Foaming Cleanser, and now, in an interview with Dazed about his new Adidas collection, he’s added another piece to the puzzle of his skincare regime:

I exfoliate like a madman. When you exfoliate and you drink a lot of water, that does good for you. To me, the key is just exfoliating, like a monster. There’s a lot of dead skin. All the time. Like a narcissistic madman.

OK, this is a good start, but I’m going to need more detail. Is Pharrell doing acid exfoliation, or is he using a scrub? What are the specific products he’s using? You can’t just tease people like this Pharrell, we need to know, our glo-ups depend on it. Drop the full product regime, Pharrell, for the love of god.

Elsewhere in the interviewwhich is unfortunately a little short on any news about new musicPharrell discussed politics, and specifically the issue of climate change. The topic is currently weighing heavy on the minds of many following extreme weather in the US, in the forms of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma:

There are just people who make a lot of money on pretending that these are not real issues. I don’t understand how you can live in Alaska and not believe in global warming. Actually, I do understanda lack of empathy is very powerful. It can make you see things that are not there.

It’s an enlightening read if you’re interested in Pharrell’s relationship with fashion; or if, indeed, you are, like me, just after that skincare holy grail.

CESAREO GARASA: Collectibles, comics, a concert oh my! This local con delivers – The Bakersfield Californian09.07.17

This weekends big event will undoubtedly be the Village Fest, aka Bakersfields largest social bacchanal.

However, there is one event happening on Saturday (and Sunday) that offers something totally different for all ages think of it as Village Fests slightly geekier younger cousin: Bakersfield Collector-Con at the Rabobank Convention Center.

That both events are happening on the same day is purely coincidental. Convention founder and promoter Nick Avalos, 39, says the convention’s booking date was out of necessity and opportunity: There was a cancellation.

(This Saturday) was basically the only spot available, Avalos said.

On Saturday, the convention lasts from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. so collectors can conceivably make the con and still hit Village Fest an hour later (note: The con will be serving booze). But what about those who are too young to attend the latter? Its a feeling anyone under 21 years of age in places like Las Vegas and Reno know all too well: plenty of stuff to do if youre an adult. Kids? Not so much.

Our thing is a family event, so we want to keep the families together, Avalos said. And what better way than having them enjoy a nice day with toys, comic books, (and) a cosplay contest? Then, afterwards, they get to enjoy a live concert.

The concert hes talking about is what, along with the new venue, makes this Collector-Con different from previous years. It was the move to Rabobank Convention Center that afforded Avalos an opportunity to expand the convention in more than just size.

This year we were fortunate enough to turn our convention into a two-day show, Avalos said. The (Rabobank Convention Center) gave us the opportunity to stay there later, so it was either ask the vendors to stay and make their day longer or try to incorporate something else to reach a whole different genre.

So instead of just having a DJ, like years prior, they’ll ratchet up the nostalgia factor to 11 pun intended by playing themes to old cartoons like G.I. Joe and Thundercats then attendees will be treated to an honest-to-goodness rock show after the convention is over.

The concert is family-friendly as well, but fair warning: These band are here to rock. Emily Lazar, the frontwoman and conceptual mastermind behind headliner September Mourning, performs in character as a human/grim reaper hybrid named September (natch). You wont likely find this band on daytime Nickelodeon anytime soon.

September Mourning is amazing, Avalos said. They fit right in with what were doing.

Lazars character isnt the only hybrid here the entire idea of the band is. Lazar, along with famed comic book artist (and Witchblade creator) Marc Silvestri, created the entire project as a multimedia crossover between comic books, music and performance.

Lazar has been a fan of comics since childhood and her choice to partner her music with them wasnt born from a sort of calculated business standpoint. It came from years of reading and enjoying them, stemming from days in her grandparents’ basement in New York, reading Dad’s old comic books.

And while other bands have attempted to cross-pollinate their music with comics and toys sometimes with like-minded theatricality as Lazar Ive yet to see one as ambitious or as immersive as her vision.

The music isnt the soundtrack for the show (KISS), the basis for the comic (My Chemical Romance), or the comic book the basis for the music (Coheed and Cambria). For Lazar, the music and comics work symmetrically with each other an intertwined mythology absorbed over different platforms. Even her characters design on pages and on stages reflects that.

With September, Lazar said, (the) whole thing is that shes a human/reaper hybrid so shes not totally supernatural. Shes human but she has these weird powers. That was a big thing when we were creating it: I wanted to keep the humanity in the hero because I thought that was huge. For me, that was something that I was drawn to as a kid: I wanted to able to relate. And taking that (character) to a totally different level becomes a little bit unreliable. You have to have empathy in a hero.

Both issues of the September Mourning comic, A Murder of Reapers and The Hand of Fate, were recently collected into a graphic novel with a cover by Silvestri, and available at major book sellers. Its the companion piece to the bands 2015 EP Volume I and 2016s Volume II.

Their music is a mixture of modern hard rock, djent-style metal, and heavily theatrical goth. The well-produced Volume II (whose first track is appropriately named The Collection) goes from sweeping, operatic passages (Skin and Bones) to almost bouncy metal pop (seriously on Superhuman), to aggressive, melodic despair (20 Below).

They even cover the classic Stand By Me, changing the hopeful repose of the original into a dark invitation. Oh, she goes deep here. Her vocals go from guttural to throat-shredding.

My personal favorites have to be the knockout Eye of the Storm with its unexpectedly killer melodic chorus and the anthemic Children of Fate which acts as both a rallying cry and statement of purpose contextual comic book storyline or not.

Also, the band taught me a very important lesson: If you are auditioning (even if youre not aware of it) for a goth-metal band, dont show up to rehearsal dressed like youre going to play a reggae gig. Yup. That really happened. I saw Lazars talent firsthand. Shes an artistic powerhouse. Dont be surprised if you see her eventually directing movies and giving Rob Zombie a run for his money.

Also performing will be Arizona-based Doll Skin (listed as one of the seven best rising bands under 21 by AP magazine in 2016), Kern County/Los Angeles hybrid (again!) Forget your Friends, and local rising stars (pun also intended) Missing Autumn, Stereo Citizen and Art and the Resistance. There will be no separate tickets on sale for the show, so you’ll have to pay the for the $13 Saturday pass. That’s still a heck of a bargain for the amount of talent on display, though. For $5 more, you can get a two-day pass and geek out frugally.

On both days of the convention, there will be cosplay contests for kids and adults (prizes TBD), and raffles that will benefit the Ronald McDonald House. The con is naturally an anti-bully space and attendees are invited to be themselves and have fun within reason. Just because Superman could fly, doesnt mean you should try it.

Its a sweet revenge to witness a sea change happen over the years where those once derided have become the modern arbiters and creators of pop culture. Take note, kids: That which makes you you, makes you awesome. Or amazing, or spectacular, or even uncanny (puns definitely intended).

Its cool, Lazar said, We liked this stuff back in the day, when it wasnt It was cool, but everybody (treated you) like, Oh, Youre a nerd. You read comic books, I used to get teased.

But that happened to computer geeks too, back in the day, and now theyre owning the world. So its kinda like, the cool kids today were the uncool kids ten-years ago. Thats what its become, which is, I think, awesome. It took them a little bit of time, but the mainstream finally figured it out, but thats how it always is.

Fifth annual Bakersfield Collector-Con, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday,Rabobank Convention Center, 1001 Truxtun Ave. $13 Saturday, $8 Sunday, $18 two-day pass, free for children 10 and under; VIP (includes early entry) $25 Saturday, $15 Sunday.

Get ‘Close’ at Maya Cinemas

“Close Encounters of the Third Kind” 40th anniversary, noon, 3:30, 7 and 10:15 p.m. Thursday at Maya Cinemas, 1000 California Ave. $7.50.

Speaking of things fantastic, for those who didnt get to see Steven Spielbergs Close Encounters of the Third Kind in the theater present company included here is our chance.

In honor of the movies 40th anniversary, its been digitally remastered in 4K and re-released in various theaters nationwide where audiences can experience it the way it was meant to be: larger and louder than life on the big really big screen. The MPX screen at the Maya Cinemas is as impressive as IMAX sans 3D. Thursday is the last day audiences can catch it in theaters.

This film a personal favorite shouldnt just be watched, it deserves to be experienced. It is truly one of the rare movies that can accurately be described as magnificent. While the scope is grand, its character development is intimate.

From the mysterious, haunting opening in the Sonoran Desert, to the tender, eerie, colorful, jaw-dropping climax, this was Spielbergs test-run for his masterpiece, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, in both emotion and spectacle. Its also, truly, one of cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmonds and visual effects supervisor Douglas Trumbulls finest hours.

Here, Spielberg learned how to subtly ratchet up tension (more-so than on Jaws), how to wring every ounce of emotion out of a score, and how to utilize special effects believably. These were all templates for each of his films after science-fiction or not.

With some of the most iconic imagery we will never see Devils Tower mountain in Wyoming without thinking of this movie and whats probably the most recognizable five-note motif in film history (technically, four notes one of them is an octave), re-watching CE3K makes adults remember what it was like to be a kid discovering wonder for the first time. It’s wistful, majestic, magical, mysterious and scary. It’s truly brilliant at times almost quite literally.

Do your kids a favor: Share this with them. The film is rated PG for some light cursing and some intense moments (the abduction scene in particular), but theyll get it. Theyll really get it.

Also, for better or worse, Spielberg is one of the first filmmakers to re-release his movie in theaters with added material, starting in 1980 with Close Encounters of the Third Kind Special Edition. So those special editions of Star Wars? Thanks to this guy.

Art Imitating Life: This New South Park Game Gets Harder If You Choose A Black Character – Blavity09.07.17

How can we forget that famous Scandal moment when Papa Pope told Olivia, “You have to be twice as good as them to get half of what they have?”

Photo: GIPHY

Well, art is again imitating life in the South Park headquarters. A new video game based on the popular animated series incorporates racial life dynamics, Kotakureports.

The game, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, will have its difficulty settings based on the skin color players choose in the game’s character creation screen.

Preview gameplay footage shows that the game’s difficulty slider goes from “Easy,” the white option, to “Very Difficult,” a dark skinned option. In a fun twist on gaming world defaults, if a player wants to play the game on “Normal” mode, they have to play as a person of color.

According to Eurogamer, the skin color of the player’s character will determine how Non-Player Characters (NPCs) react to the character in various situations, and will also affect how much money your character is able to earn for their work.

Dont worry, this doesnt affect combat. Just every other aspect of your whole life, South Parks leading character, Eric Cartman jokes as you select your skin color.

Race isnt the only thing that affects gameplay, either.

Players can also choose if their character is male, female or neither. After choosing your sex, you are asked to chose whether you are cis or trans.

In Eurogamer’s playthrough, its reviewers decided to be a transgender young woman, and found themselves under physical attack by transphobic South Park residents.

If all of this sounds interesting, you’ll be able to play the game yourself soon.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole releases on October 17th.

Remember, sharing is caring.

Adult film star yanks thong down in crotch-flashing red carpet stunt – Daily Star09.07.17

Andy Barnes / Flynet – SplashNews

We’ve witnessed some pretty major faux pas when it comes to the red carpet.

From ill-fated nip slips to beauty blunder nightmares, celebs often make the headlines for the wrong reasons.

However, adult film star Jema’s turn in front of the flashing bulbs is undoubtedly in a league of its own.

Whilst attending the film premiere of Retribution at London’s Empire Cinema, the buxom blonde put on a one-woman peepshow.

These celebrities got caught out in accidental vagina flashes. Fromm Abbey Clancy, to Iggy Azalea here are the best ‘clea-vadge’ moments.

Not content with just flashing her crotch, the model pulled her G-string down below her butt cheeks.

Seemingly unfazed by her X-rated antics, the brazen lass laughed hysterically as she continued to pose up a storm.

Barkley has been itching to leave Goodison Park this summer for a new challenge after handing in a transfer request.

But a hamstring injury that has ruled him out until November scuppered a deadline day move to Chelsea.

With Barkley unable to join his team-mates in training, the 23-year-old has plenty of free time on his hands.

And he spent his Thursday at the tattoo removers after being snapped hobbling around on crutches.

But Everton fans quickly took to Twitter to suggest that he was having the club crest removed now he wants to leave the club.

One fan wrote: Ross Barkley removing his Everton tattoo hahaha the geez actually hates us.

Another wants Barkley out of the club when they wrote: “Barkley getting his tattoo removed or?? I actually cannot wait till he leaves.”

Barkley also had tattoo ‘XX.VIII.MMXI’ removed from his arm which is the date on his debut against Queens Park Rangers on August 20, 2011.

He is almost certain to leave the Blues in January with both Chelsea and Tottenham still interested in landing his signature.

Mastering the art of tattoos – Kokomo Herald (press release)09.07.17

Jerry Frost didnt set out to be a tattoo artist when he was younger, but some well-laid plans in art school paved the way to a successful career in the industry.

For the past two decades, Frost has been responsible for the body art on countless customers at New Breed Tattoo and Piercing, where he works as the owner.

The beginning of his career dated back to his time in art school when he and a buddy of his liked getting tattoos and aspired of inking others someday. The pair believed they could step into the industry if they did it right.

We thought we could do it and took baby steps because it was the early 90s. It wasnt like today. There wasnt a lot of help, Frost said. For the most part, it was more of an issue of most people that were into tattoos werent that artistic. There were people at the national level that were popular and respected, but at a local level, thats what me and buddy thought, that they werent that good at art to begin with. It was something we could do. Time went by, and I slowly got into it and got a job somewhere.

Frost was creating art on the human canvas, a slight difference from his old ways of pencil and paper, although he said that switching from pencil to a tattoo needle was similar in some ways.

You are drawing on a flat surface with pencil and paper. You have to get used to the three-dimension shape. Its something you acquire after so long, he said. You have one shot.

He acquired a job tattooing and quit his job as a pizza delivery guy. He didnt look back. His work is that of realism, a technique he picked up working with a guy who was solid in creating life-like images on the skin.

If I hadnt worked with him, I may not have gotten some of the tricks that lead to the realism, said Frost. People were gravitating more toward artsy realism, so I was trying to keep up with what people were asking for. I guess I just got lucky that I was around somebody that got me that way.

He said, as a tattoo artist, he will tackle any type of tattoo, from simple work to very detailed work. Some tattoos can be completed in a short time frame, while other larger pieces can rack up many hours in the chair.

There have been some back pieces that were maybe 80 to 100 hours in total. I guess I never keep track of hours. The very most Ive ever worked on someone was six to eight hours by the time you take a break or grab something to eat, he said. Most people are done after three to four hours. Some days you might work a little longer, some less.

Frost credits the online world to opening many doors to tattoo artists across the globe to learning new techniques and seeing some cool work.

The same thing that beat up the music industry helped tattooing. Its the access to all the images and people being able to get with you and see your work on a phone. Back in the 90s when I started out, it was still very much where people would walk in, pick something off the wall and go, he said. Now, most everything is custom. It used to be where you would go into a Barnes and Noble and pick up a book of what you think people would like. Those books are at home now. Back in the 90s, you might have been friends with a couple people in town, but now I can look at guys work in Russia or Poland.

Getting tattooed is more mainstream than ever, and Frost said that most of the work that comes into New Breed is custom work. Most people that come into his shop know what they want, and he rarely has to give advice against getting a certain tattoo done. The only time he interjects is if the detail is too tight or a customer is asking for the tattoo to be placed somewhere it will not hold up.

Thats the only time I talk to them about really thinking it out, he said.

In addition to new work, cover up work is a prevalent aspect to the business.

Tattoos deteriorate and dont look as good in the long run, said Frost. You cant just power a new one over the top. You have to be clever with what you do, and not all cover-ups are possible. For some, we might recommend people to get lasered at the shop once or twice to open up that process of more clever ideas.

Frost said the market is competitive, and those wishing to enter the field will have to work hard at it.

Just like if you want to be a good football player, you practice all the time. I know people who want to tattoo, and I tell them they need to hone their own art, he said. They need to draw and draw and draw. There was a renaissance in the 90s into the early 2000s. The tools that a younger person would use are all over the place. Today, I wouldnt say its easy. Its more competitive because there are so many. Long ago, there werent that many. There are a lot of people now, so you really have to work hard to outshine the others. I got in while it was growing in popularity.
