Bless You ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’ for Gifting Us These Frightening Custom Characters…

Don’t worry, dudes and dudettes; no spoilers to Mass Effect: Andromeda here.  Anyway, the story of Mass Effect: Andromeda involves humanity journeying out to populate new home worlds in the Andromeda Galaxy as part of  the “Andromeda Initiative”. The player assumes the role of either Scott or Sara Ryder, an inexperienced military recruit who joins the Initiative and wakes up in Andromeda after a 600+ year voyage. As with the other main Mass Effect games, the player can create a custom character using the features of the game’s robust creation system, which can lead to amazing or hideous character creations. This post — and the following images after the break — celebrates the latter. Enjoy the show. Continue reading Bless You ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’ for Gifting Us These Frightening Custom Characters…

A Colonial House Recovery on 64th Street; I Smell a Holiday Movie Franchise…

© Pim Schalkwijk

Riddle me this, Batman (assuming that you’re Batman, of course): what happens if the building — in this case in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico — you’re converting into a bar is cataloged as a Historic Monument by the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico, which doesn’t allow ANY modification of the property? Well, you’re limited to only being able to recover the existing architectural elements (in this case, iron and wood) and design the project with complete and absolute fidelity to the original building. Re-purposing and rehabilitating a historic structure can be complicated enough, but the Nauzet Rodríguez team pulled it off real well.

WWE Network’s “Southpaw Regional Wrestling” is Everything I Didn’t Know I Wanted…

In a move that, like an RKO, absolutely came outta nowhere, WWE sent out a tweet yesterday announcing a new series on the WWE Network, titled Southpaw Regional Wrestling, .  So far, it looks to be the Network’s first successful stab at scripted comedy.  To be honest, any show with John Cena doing his best Gordon Solie impersonation  — as the character and play-by-play announcer “Lance Catamaran” — ought to be good. Continue reading WWE Network’s “Southpaw Regional Wrestling” is Everything I Didn’t Know I Wanted…

The MucoJet, for Needle-Free, Painless Vaccinations…

Injections for vaccinations, while saving the lives of millions of people from common sicknesses and diseases, are still pretty painful; particularly for younger children who are most at risk of diseases. That might change within the next ten years, thanks to researchers in Dorian Liepmann’s lab at the University of California, Berkeley, who’ve developed the MucoJet. The creation is a needle-free, pill-sized, 3D-printed device that shoots a stream of vaccine into the tissue of the cheek, making vaccinations practically painless.

The 10 Types of Architecture Students (presented by Leewardists.com)

From the 4 years I’ve spent in undergrad at Texas A&M and the extra 2 years in the Master’s program at UT-San Antonio, I can definitely say that we Architecture majors have a lot in common. As part of the lifestyle, we all have the same long-term relationship with coffee (going on 14 years strong), share the urge to cardboard shards and boxes to make models, and our university studio facility became our ‘home away from home’. Along with that, you get to know your fellow students (as you do in ANY other school), but in the world of architecture majors, our studio culture tends to hosts micro-societies of different personalities (after the break).  The Leewardists are rewriting the contemporary history of our civilization through the voice of this elusive being, The Architect.  For more about that comic series follow them on FacebookInstagram or visit their website.
