/COMMEMORATION: GUY FAWKES NIGHT

Remember, remember, today’s the 5th of November, its Guy Fawkes Night tonight. I’m not going to get all political and preachy, but lest we forget…

Its amazing how the dude’s ideals still stand strong and still apply to today’s society (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, check Wikipedia). I think now is a more important time than ever for us to show our opposition to ridiculous and unjust systems and structures.

/ORGANISATION: MOVEMBER

So this may be like 5 days late, but I feel Movember is a worthy enough cause to support regardless. Movember is a month-long (rather, November-long) charity and awareness drive which is run world-wide for cancer fund-raising and awareness. Officially launched in 2004, this drive has been growing incredibly fast since. I’ll let them explain better:

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shave face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Mo Sistas are the women who register to support the men in their lives, raising funds by seeking sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.”

Support the cause if you can sprout some facial hair, otherwise, you could join as a “Mosista“.

NOTE: Some of the pictures shown in the above slideshow advertise a different organisation, Moustaches Make a Difference, which is similar, but has its own take:

“Movember is a month where men all over the world grow their moustaches in support of men’s health issues. We’re bringing our own version of this movement to Singapore, and growing our moustaches in support of prostate cancer research.”

Here are the links to both organisations:

/PHOTO SERIES: OSSIAN BROWN – HAUNTED AIR

So this may be a little late for Halloween, but the series is too spooky to not post. Back in 2010, artist/musician Ossian Brown released a compilation photo-book featuring old Halloween photos ranging in date from 1875 and 1955. They creep as shit.

/NEWS: DISNEY TAKES OVER LUCASFILMS AND STAR WARS

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So the whole interwebs is ablaze with the news: Disney has bought Lucas Film and the rights to the Star Wars franchise for a whopping $4.05 billion. Obviously, this brings with it a whole debate and discussion. Disney has announced that they plan on releasing Episodes VII, VIII and IX (and perhaps more) at a (hopeful?) rate of a movie every two years. George Lucas himself said:

I’m doing this so that the films will have a longer life. So that more fans and people can enjoy them in the future. It’s a very big universe I’ve created, and there’s a lot of stories that are sitting in there… I get to be a fan now, which is what I was saying before, and I’m looking forward to it. It’s a lot more fun actually.”

On the one hand, there is positivity because this means that there is a future for the series (beyond cartoon TV series, games and merchandise), but on the other hand a shadow of doubt is being cast because of the fear that Disney will “spoil” the series.

In my opinion, its awesome. Sure Disney has made some serious flops and stuff-ups before, but after watching TRON: Legacy and TRON: Uprising (its parrallel TV series), am I totally confident that Disney won’t let something as big (in terms of following and cash-pulling) as Star Wars go to waste. Worst comes to worst, its a chance to see more of R2-D2 and C3P0’s universe, if you don’t like it you could always ignore the new movies and just pretend like the series ended at Episode VI.

EDIT: Has everyone simply forgotten that Disney also runs franchises like Indiana Jones and The Avengers? – if you ask me, they’re pretty rad. I’m not defending Disney, just saying that people shouldn’t be hating until they’ve seen these new movies, and in the very least give them a chance to be made and released first!
