video game goodness.

April 4, 2012

Around the time St. Anger came out, Metallica revealed they were working on a post-apocalyptic video game featuring vehicles and whatnot. I remember watching the trailer for it and not being super impressed. Then again… I wasn’t very impressed by many games back then and it’s still that way now. I guess it was a sort of “Twisted Metal”-style digital romp and it probably would have been fun enough to rent but it ended up being cancelled for some reason.

At any rate, Nixel Pixel has posted some pretty fantastic concept art from the game made by Calum Alexander Watt and I think it’s highly worth a look. It may get taken down (who knows when dealing with the Metalli-lawyers) so peep it soon. I posted my favorite image from the group, Kirk Hammett with his vehicle, after the jump.

I saw these awesome ads the other day. Great photography, really nice and clean design. Good stuff.

I’m starting things off with probably one of my favorite images right now. Done by Christel Bangsgaard and found on Someplace Something, well… it’s just awesome. I’ve seen these kinds of things before and they are usually awesome. I love photos of lips, or suckers, or just shiny, sugary shit in general. Anyway, hit the jump to see some more cool stuff I’ve found while on my journey through the internet. Links will be at the end of the post to see more.

Look at those pants and old, worn-down boots. Wild West hipster if I’ve ever seen one. Damnit Clint, you are truly a badass if you could pull those pants off.

I surely can’t.

something seems amiss.

Am I missing something with this flyer? Who would allow this to go out and get printed? I just don’t understand the point of the backwards, rotated “Z” at the end of JAZZ. Does it make a shape I’m not seeing? Is it supposed to be free-form and jazzy?

Can somebody explain this to me, please?
