Faster than a speeding Arrow: The Flash teaser
by Doc on May.14, 2014, under Television
In case you needed a reminder, this teaser will give it to you…if you’ve been watching Arrow, you’ve already seen the Flash – well, pre-superhero – in the form of Barry Allen, who appeared in two episodes earlier this season for being irradiated in some form, but we’ve heard little from him since – but we knew he was going to show up in his own series.

H.R. Giger, 1940-2014
by Doc on May.14, 2014, under Obituaries
Artist H.R. Giger, whose surreal, organic designs often struck at the horror strings in viewers, passed away Monday at the age of 74.
He is perhaps best known for his designs of the eponymous Alien, but his nightmarish designs often found their way throughout the music industry, from album covers (such as Emerson, Lake and Palmer’s Brain Salad Surgery), to guitars and microphone stands. He also did artwork for several films, although his designs were not always used. More recently his work was featured in the documentary about Alejandro Jodorowsky’s adaptation of Dune that was never produced.
