‘Wrestling with Death’ is ‘Six Feet Under’ with a Squared-Circle…

wrestling with death

WGN, who’s been having quite the streak with excellent original content (Salem & Manhattan FTW!),  is about to bring a brand new original series into the fold early next year — roughly two months away — and this new show is ALL kinds of ridiculous and amazing at the same time. The series is called Wrestling with Death, which — according to the show’s Facebook page – is a “unique family docu-series.” Wrestling with Death will be WGN America’s first unscripted series, and will introduce the world to The Lathams, who run The Wilson Funeral Home in Osceola, Arkansas as morticians by day, and run The Mid-Southern Championship Wrestling League as professional wrestlers by night.” SOLD!

Play ‘Symphony of the Night’…in LittleBigPlanet 3!

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of the greatest games of all time, and one of my favorite games to replay every year or so.  The game took the series and a whole new direction; mostly by taking the Metroid level design formula and instituting the ‘Metriod-Vania’ game genre.  While there currently exists many ways to play the game (from buying the original print of the game, purchasing the Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles on PSP, digital distribution, etc.), this rendition of the Konami classic looks to be a blast to give a try.  All you need is a PlayStation 4 and a copy of LittleBigPlanet 3.

But what’s the best thing about a lightweight, open-source and FREE media player?

A Tin Man-inspired, umm, Tinman House in Bangkok

I guess it’s safe to say that the owner of the building REALLY likes steel structures; might have to so with its high resiliency, performance under difficult conditions, and quick assembly .  Anyway, the ‘Tin Man’ building showcases a simple and straightforward — yet still distinctive — design using structural steel as the primary material. Interestingly, the use of structural steel also reflects the construction process’ flexibility and represent the quality of the ‘Truth to materials’ architectural design process. Located in the heart of Bangkok — where there’s a concern with the limitations of land use – ‘Tin Man’ is a 3-story house designed to save as much space as possible under the 6 meter-span of structural steel. The owner of the house is a fan of the Tinman character from L. Frank Baum’s classic book, ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ in which the Tinman is a representation of one being with a humble, honest heart.
