Tiny Canadian images

So the CN Tower projects tiny Canadian images that nobody can see up and down its shaft and a guy with a lot of time in his hands saw this:

The Boys are hustling with the upcoming release of Elysium, which is sounding more and more intriguing from the samples available on the net. The album, referred by Neil as their most "beautiful" and "deep", has a lot of references to middle age apparently, even though they are aging quite well after an awkward phase in the early 2000’s.

They will be playing the entire album live next week in Berlin and have just announced a new single, “Leaving”, another rather subdued choice, with more-sad-than-happy lyrics and some totally throwback PSB sounds. Potential for huge remixes.
In a recent interview to Vanity Fair, Neil talks about the being involved in the Olympics, the new album and how the video for Domino Dancing might have ruined things in America for them. He also talks about how pop music isn't always given its proper credit:

"There’s always been this ancient war between pop and rock. Rock is meant to be significant, therefore people write about it in terms of significance. Pop is meant to be throwaway."

And on an exclusive video for The Huffington Post UK, Chris can barely disguise his boredom. Classic.

Compare to 1986.

Wonder Woman and Superman

Again. Every few years DC Comics decides to pair these two up for some reason or another, with things usually ending up in friendship. This year, reporter Alyssa Rosenberg lambasts the dryness and unsexiness of the cover for Justice League 12, comparing it to someone "smushing a Barbie and a Ken Doll together. These don’t look like humans who are attracted to each other and in the process of making actual sexual contact." Writer Geoff Johns says we'd better get used to it.

And with that in mind, another round of Wonder Women.
