Image of the Day | Life Finds a Way

There’s exactly one year to go until we get to watch the Jurassic World sequel in cinema’s, and thanks to a poster that appeared online yesterday, we now know what it will be called – Fallen Kingdom.

There is currently no news on what the movie will actually be about, and since they haven’t wrapped up filming yet, we can’t expect a trailer for a good few months, but Jeff Goldblum is back as Dr Ian Malcolm, after skipping the past two Jurassic park films, and this poster is making sure everyone knows about it by featuring his most iconic quote “Life finds a way” – except they missed out the ‘uh’, but I will forgive that for now.

Image of the Day | Guardians of the Gravity Falls

Since today is Summerween – according to Gravity Falls – and Guardians of the Galaxy is still fresh in everyone’s mind, I thought this rather epic mash-up of the two fandoms would be perfect for my Image of the Day.

Drawn by Ken Turner, Mable and Dipper lead the team as Mabora and Dip-Lord, but Grunkle Stan as Drax is the best!

Superhero Tan Lines

Today marks the first official day of Summer, and the longest day of the year, so make sure you wear plenty of sun cream, or you’ll end up like these iconic DC superheroes – can you guess which one is which?

See Mike Draws shows us what happens when you wear your costume out in the sun – though I can’t imagine Batman or Robin get too many tan lines since they mainly fight crime at night.

Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side kid – Han Solo

Someone posted a picture of their crew shirt up on Reddit, and it’s possible they revealed the name of the upcoming Han Solo spin-off.

Granted, Solo isn’t all that inventive, but I really like the logo, replacing the L with Han’s iconic blaster.

Of course, this could just be a working title. The film’s official name is yet to be revealed, but with filming underway, i’d like to think they’ll release something soon.

Still, for now, it’s nice to get confirmation that something’s actually being filmed. This Han Solo spin-off has gone straight to the top of my most anticipated list, especially with Donald Glover confirmed as Lando.

Image of the Day | Days of Future Past

Happy birthday Marty McFly! I came across this Back to the Future fan art by Jarreau Wimberly this morning, and just had to share it to commemorate Mcfly’s 49th year on earth.

I’ve seen a lot of BTTF mash-ups in my time, but this has got to be one of my favourites. Wimberly re-imagines the classic Back to the Future poster, replacing Marty and Doc with Logan and Deadpool, and the title with a slightly more appropriate one.

I would watch the hell out of this. How about you?

Silence Earthling. My name is Darth Vader. I am an extra-terrestrial from the planet Vulcan! – Marty Mcfly

Image of the Day | Orange is the New Cat

Season 5 of Orange is the New Black launched on Netflix today, so as I sit on my bed in a bright orange, Litchfield onesie that my best friend gave me last year, half way through episode one, I felt the need to share this awesome – or.. pawesome (sorry not sorry) – illustration.

If you’ve ever wondered what the cast would look like as cat’s, take it all in. I’m just a little bit in love with Pennsatucky myself.

And now I leave you with my favourite OITNB quote:

Did you ever see that one movie, the one where there’s this cowboy, and he’s like the king of the castle, and then this astronaut shows up, and he tries to take over, and so the cowboy attempts to murder him, but instead, the astronaut is taken hostage by this evil psychopath, and the cowboy has to rescue him, and then they end up becoming really good friends – Morello.

Can you guess the movie she’s talking about? Whats’ your favourite quote from Orange is the New Black? Will you be watching this new season?

Image of the Day | Evolution of the Geek

Happy Geek Pride Day! If you’re reading this blog, then you’re probably slightly geeky inclined. You may not know that you’re a geek, but chances are that if you’re passionate about something – you know that excitable, hyperventilating, almost stalker like passion – you’re probably a geek.

Now, that of course is my own personal opinion, because the term Geek mean’s something different to everybody. As someone who was labelled ‘geek’ super young, purely because they were clever, liked to read, and wore glasses to school, I haven’t always been fond of the term.

In fact, I wanted nothing to do with the term. I just couldn’t get my head around the fact that if you looked a certain way, you were called a geek. And that’s still how a lot of people see it. They think that if somebody is smart or different, then they’re a geek.

But I’ve come to realise that being a geek isn’t a label, it’s a feeling. I’ve had a lot of time to think about what being a geek means to me, and I think Simon Pegg described it best:

Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.

So what does being a geek mean to me?

It means I can get excited about movies years before they come out. It means I have a library full of amazing books that I can easily teleport in to. It means I can spend hours playing video games and completely forget about the world I actually live in. It means I can collect toys because toys are awesome and anyone who tells you they aren’t obviously hasn’t looked or played with one in about 20 years. It means I live an ordinary life like everyone else – I go to work, and eat, and sleep – but I also have one kick ass imagination that never allows anything to get truly boring.

What does being a geek mean to you? Let me know.

Image of the Day | Jeff Goldblum Machine

I’m 98% sure this is the best thing I’ve ever seen. I LOVE Rube Goldberg machines. I think they’re one of the best things ever, but a Jeff Goldblum machine – well that just trumps everything. Firstly, Jeff Goldblum in the man – look at him chilling down at the bottom. Secondly, there’s a dinosaur! I cannot be the only person that wants to see this machine in action? I take my fictional hat off to artist Doug LaRocca because I’ve never seen anything like this, and all I want is more..

Image of the Day | The Little Merman

I came across this illustration by Luke Flowers, on Gallery 1988 and decided it had to be shared because it’s simply the craziest pop culture mash-up I’ve ever seen – who the hell would think to combine Zoolander with The Little Mermaid? Seriously! Seeing Derek Zoolander as Ariel, and Hansel as Prince Eric is the most bizarre yet beautiful thing in the world.

BTTF 05

Happy Back to the Future Day! The 21st October signify’s that all important date that Marty McFly travels to when he’s transported to the future, so I thought I’d share one of my favourite Back to the Future Images, created by Ben the Illustrator.

I love everything about this piece – the vibrant colours, the textures, and most importantly, the reference to McFly’s favourite mode of transport, next to the Delorean of course.
