mass effect 3: first trailer

Earth is burning. Striking from beyond known space, a race of terrifying machines have begun their destruction of the human race. As Commander Shepard, an Alliance Marine, your only hope for saving mankind is to rally the civilizations of the galaxy and launch one final mission to take back the Earth. (via joystiq)

Release window? As it appears in the trailer, Holiday 2011. Oh really? Whenever Bioware releases ME3, it's going to become a holiday. Joystiq breaks news in another post that ME3 will include multiplayer.


qlimax 2010 after movie


Finally, this year's Qlimax aftermovie is out! Expecting the DVD in the upcoming months, livesets were amazing - this trailer doesn't even sniff the real atmosphere of the Gelredome transformation. Still. Image below is Stephanie, Italian hardstyle diva (Q-Dance - InQontrol 2010 - SAVE.EXIT.PLANET - Amsterdam RAI (2010-04-17), for the image).


2010: the linkbox of memory lane

A skatepark light angel, created by photographer Ben Matthews,via grinding.be.

These are the links/posts that never made it to planet://damage, excluding personal photos of doom, awesomeness and porn. Didn't comment all these links, because it would have been tedious and I've already spent some time selecting stuff from my bookmarks, Twitter and Google Reader faves, so there, you'll at least spend some time sifting through the garbage. Thanks to everyone who sent any of these to me in the hours of need - you know who you are.

kick it: drop that beat like an ugly baby


It's a sort-of sequel to Aaaaa, except this time you're falling through sky cities rendered via your music collection. As you import tracks in, shapes and formations are created depending on the music. Right now it's fairly simple, as the game is still in alpha, but the guys are hoping to make it seriously clever - so for example, if your song mentions dragons, the final game will hopefully throw dragons at you.

deus ex: human revolution - cyberpunk making a comeback in 2011



Did I say it's making a comeback? I was sort of smearing around the truth. First generation cyberpunk stories making a comeback with gun and implant porn (not unlike the CP2020 sourcebooks I just managed to lay my hands on), a metropolis that still doesn't have any pedestrians wondering around (one of my greatest con arguments against city simulations) and it doesn't even look like an open-ended sandbox world. These five minutes? You've probably seen most of it scattered throughout the previous shorter trailers but hey - it's here, it's extended and it's Friday. Go enjoy. (sent in by Riplakoidase)

the top 15 tron-inspired music videos / a legjobb 15 tron-ihlette videoklip


Támad a retrofuturizmus, avagy így néz ki a popipar, ha a Tron neon geometriáját keni a reggeli kalácsra - az eredeti Daft Punk Derezzed filmelőzetesétől méltán elfelejtett olasz rapmetálig, szomorúszemű indie fiúkig és érthetetlenül neonsurranós, ámbár jókosarú csajokig fut a lista, megérdemlitek-kakukktojással a végén: tizenöt videoklip, amit a Tronnak köszönhetünk.
Retrofuturism is breathing down your necks, or this is how pop industry looks like if it drops the morning Kellogg's into Tron's neon geometries. A terrific and terrifying compilation of fifteen music videos inspired by Tron - from obscure Italian crossovers to sad-eyed indie boys and neon sneaker hotties, not excluding Daft Punk's Derezzed. But there's so much more.

ez a törzshelyünk: pest legjobb koreai étterme


A diszgráfiás étlapszerző ujjait valószínűleg egyesével építették egybe a bungeejumping-kötéllel, mielőtt ledobták volna az északi összekötőről, mert egy sort se írt le helyesen (de még azt is rosszul), a szomorúfűz-retro függönnyel eltakart konyharészből Falloutot megszégyenítő riasztó szól, amitől a fiúk fiktív, víz és vodka elegyével teli fürdőkádba buknak alá (a nagyon óvatosak a piros-fehér asztalterítőktől már visszafordulnak az ajtóból), az este nyolc után érkező üzletemberek meg extra szívdobbanás nélkül gyújtanak rá egyszerre egy fél csomagra a szomszédos asztalnál, mégis vagy három éve ez a törzshelyünk, Budapest legjobb koreai étterme.

beyond the black rainbow trailer


Set in the strange and oppressive emotional landscape of 1983, Beyond The Black Rainbow is a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons. Deep within the mysterious Arboria Institute, a disturbed and beautiful girl (Allan) is held captive by a doctor in search of inner peace. Her mind controlled by a sinister technology. Silently, she waits for her next session with deranged therapist Dr. Barry Nyle (Rogers). If she hopes to escape, she must journey through the darkest reaches of The Institute... but Nyle wonʼt easily part with his most gifted and dangerous creation. (via io9, via quietearth)

the dried 'naga viper' chili test: 1,349,000 (SHU)


Gerald Fowler who runs a Chili Pepper Company out of Cumbria, England told Daily Mail that, "The Naga Viper's hot is enough to strip paint. It numbs your tongue, then burns all the way down... but it's a marvelous endorphin rush." Gerald Fowler developed the Naga Viper by cross-breeding three other very hot chili peppers. He used the Ghost Pepper (Bhut Joloika), Naga Morichi, and Trinidad Scorpion. (via allvoices, recommended by @dawe_)


It actually makes me think about doing another jolokia run, anyone up for it?

norwegian ninja: for those special weekends


If Gregg Araki's Kaboom wasn't enough for you for today (readers are coming up hard for me, draped in WTF), here's another gem of cross-cultural lomo-retro gendarmerie - Norwegian Ninja. It is cheesy, it is fun, doesn't take itself too seriously and it introduces the concept of viking ninja. See below. (And there's also a YouTube sequel to it called The New-Norwegian Ninja. Significantly less serious but we're all invited to mess up our ancestors' traditions with a few kunoichi, right?)


kaboom (gregg araki, 2010)


Araki’s upbeat tone points to a revelation at the heart of his accomplishment. Regardless of its precedents, “Kaboom” never feels as angry as his earlier works. That’s not to say he has matured into an optimist; instead, it speaks to the way he lures you in with a deceptively cheery strategy before unleashing an ideological ambush. Consider Smith’s prophetic resident advisor, a stoner named The Messiah and appropriately played by “Doom Generation” lead James Duval. The same face from the 1995 movie reappears all grown up with no place to go. Araki even pays homage to his canon with a line referencing the “creeping sense of doom” haunting his entire ensemble.

♫ new skin - sweet talk (misery lab remix)


A brilliant razorsharp candy fusion of obscure of LDN/Swedish goth pop (New Skin), ex-Rosetta Stone Porl King's remixing handiwork (Miserylab), flavoured with too many long memories about being involved with the Goth crowd, even before I started promoting. (Great times, altogether.) Dug up from the treasurebox of eleven months worth' of bookmarks, faves and starred items that I'm busy either deleting or sorting them into winter posts. Want this track? You can find it on Gothic Divas Presents: Switchblade Symphony, Tre Lux and New Skin - for the album, get the self-titled 2006 Cleopatra edition here. (Recommended by @honeymooncroon.)
