Scientists are still studying how the The COVID-19 pandemic has shaped our dreams, and this is probably something that will never be fully understood. Still, just because you don’t understand something doesn’t mean it’s not fun sometimes to relish exploring it. Tonight, White Bear Center for the Arts welcomes two artists exploring the subject in their work, in an exhibition that lasts another month. On top of that, here are some other ideas to get you out into the community – indoors, outdoors or via the internet as we will brave in January.

The gap between the worlds

Rebecca Krinke takes advantage of the windows of the White Bear Center for the Arts for her eerie octopus sculpture, part of a new installation that buzzes with dreams and evokes a sense of Victorian-era spiritualism. She exhibits her work alongside Amy Ballinger, a surrealist photographer whose work touches on the macabre. Audio accompaniment by artist Lauren Arndt, with vocals and music by Hannah Morton of Kitchen Congregation gives you an added sensory experience as you experience the artwork. Opening reception is 3:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, January 20 (free, registration required); the audio walk event takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 10 (free, registration required); and the exhibition runs until February 17.

The Da Latté Theater production of “La Bohème”.

Bohemian

In 1996, 100 years after composer Giacomo Puccini and librettists Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa wrote “La Bohéme”, the dramatic opera about a group of performers in Paris, Jonathan Larson updated the story as form of a rock opera. He set it up in the East Village during the AIDS crisis, and the musical was a smash hit. Over the years, however, “Rent”‘s popularity has waned. Perhaps because it was so much a product of its particular moment in history, it doesn’t resonate as much with audiences in the 21st century. “The thing is, ‘Rentdidn’t age well because Larson wrote a musical that was entirely of its time,” Caroline Framke wrote in Vox in 2016. “Thinking back to ‘Rent’ today, after 20 years of pop culture progression, is a bit like listening to music on a cassette tape. Why revisit an outdated format now that we have MP3s and streaming?

Theater Latté Da’s production of “La Bohème,” first staged in 2005, nine years after “Rent” became a runaway sensation on Broadway, doesn’t have that problem. They changed the time period, yes, but instead of putting their version in the present, the company sets the story in Paris during the Nazi occupation. First produced at Loring Bar, artistic director Peter Rothstein’s version retains Puccini’s original music, sung in Italian with subtitles, but with a simplified selection of instruments. Pamela Espeland had a great interview with Rothstein in 2020, just before the Latté Da Theater resumed production. You can read part of the history of the production and its origin.

Unfortunately, it was canceled during the first wave of the pandemic. But this week, the production is back in action. It opened Wednesday and until Sunday, February 27 at the Ritz Theater ($35 and up). More information here.

Pink Chest by Ryan Fontaine

Ryan Fontaine — A pale and simple light

No, Hair + Nails is not a hair salon. It’s an art gallery run by self-taught visual artist, gallerist and musician Ryan Fontaine and dance designer Kristin Van Loon, known for her work with the dance duo Hijack. The gallery often uses guest artists, but also presents Fontaine’s work on occasion, often in collaboration with another artist. The last time her work took up the entirety of Hair + Nails was at the first-ever exhibition in 2016. This week, a solo exhibition of Fontaine’s art, “A Pale Simple Light,” reflects Fontaine’s experiences with the building since he and Van Loon began exploiting the space. Plants are juxtaposed with architectural elements as well as video and light sources in a meditation on unsustainable systems. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, January 22 from 7-10 p.m. at the Hair + Nails Gallery, and the exhibition will run through February 27. More information here.

By Casey Rafter

After hours of melting the minds and faces of ecstatic onlookers, Tool drummer Danny Carey is back on his drums. Carey – sporting a King jersey – was the first member of the band to return to the crowd for a three-song encore. Although most often frontman Maynard James Keenan gets the most recognition, Carey got the biggest response of the night as he opened the curtain with several minutes of live programming beats and furious jamming.

More than 17,000 votes reached chaotic heights as Tool took the stage at Golden One Center on January 15. The band were returning to Sacramento for the first time since their Aftershock performance in 2019, now joined by opening act Blonde Redhead. Sacramento was the fourth leg of a 54-date tour across the United States and Europe. That time lapse between Tool’s Sacramento visits isn’t unusual, but for more than two years the band has had a non-existent performance schedule thanks to the music industry’s greatest enemy: COVID-19.

At the start of the evening, after mesmerizing the crowd with “Spring and by Summer Fall,” Blonde Redhead singer Kazu Makino greeted everyone with her arms raised and a wave. “It’s huge! It’s huge! I know,” she said, looking over the vastness of the stadium. “I’m sure none of you know us. a great opportunity for us. We thank Tool and thank you.

The New York band – made up of Makino and brothers Amedeo and Simone Pace, guitarist and drummer respectively – hasn’t set foot in Sacramento since Launchfest 2013.

Tool often co-stars with artists like Blonde Redhead. Over the course of the band’s career, it has built its live show to showcase its own talented members — Keenan, Carey, bassist Justin Chancellor and guitarist Adam Jones — but also the incredible psychedelic art that has become iconic to his image. Jones, who received birthday greetings from Keenan during the band’s “Opiate” performance, is largely responsible for the art used in much of the band’s album covers and packaging.

In 2019, Tool released “Fear Inoculum”, their first studio album in nearly 13 years. Audiences at the Golden One Center were treated to six songs from this collection, including the studio recording of this album’s opener, “Litany Against Fear”. As the band took the stage, the instrumental track played, accompanied by a projection of Alex Grey’s “Study for ‘The Great Turn'”.

Gray mixes sacred geometry and fractals found in nature with shimmering colors – a well that Tool often returns to when developing his live performance visuals.

Almost drowning out Keenan’s own voice, a virtually sold-out crowd joined him for every word of notable favorites “Pushit”, “The Grudge” and “Hooker with a Penis”. Many superfans stayed on their feet for the entire show, raising their arms in the air to give a middle finger in solidarity with Keenan or enthusiastic bull horns (because… Tool rocks). The anti-establishment message in many of Keenan’s lyrics has moved decades of like-minded rockers.

The band’s Sacramento audience was treated to an exclusive performance when, for the first time live, Tool performed “Culling Voices,” a track from their most recent studio effort. In the middle of this 10-minute song, millions of pieces of confetti took flight, blasted into the crowd from the rafters of the venue. Joy erupted from the crowd, delighting many who said they were inhibited by more than just alcohol. Hands raised in the air in an effort to capture bits of the colorful material raining down on the crowd.

On the morning of Tool’s performance in Sacramento, ocean levels rose along the California coast due to the eruption of the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai volcano near Tonga. A member of the crowd joked about the exclusion of the song Ænima from the evening’s setlist. In it – a track from Tool’s second album – Keenan sings “Learn to Swim” and confesses to “praying for tidal waves”. The ticket holder couldn’t decide if he would have found the situation ironic or wishy-washy, but laughed as he admitted: “I think people would have noticed. I love that song, but I’m glad they didn’t play it today.

People exiting the Golden One Center were visibly impressed with the night’s entertainment. An outgoing fan noted that Keenan’s ability to connect with audiences has improved dramatically since seeing the band perform live in 2016.

“He wore a motorcycle helmet all night long,” the lucky participant recalled for SN&R. “I found myself staring at the visuals and not even noticing the band. It’s so much better. It’s like they’re back in their true form. I much prefer Mohawk-Maynard.

January 16 is “Enjoy a Dragon Day” according to the Days of the year website. How are you going to celebrate this “national holiday” in the Magic City? We’ve found five things you can do. Continue reading.

Dragons – 2nd iconic symbol of Birmingham

I’m going to make a bold statement. Yes, Vulcan is arguably Birmingham’s most iconic symbol.

Who comes 2nd? It has to be the most feared (Game of Thrones) and lovable (Shrek) real and mythical creature… the Dragon.

Dragons are everywhere in Birmingham

For people who live on the Southside, UAB’s dragon mascot, Blaze, is ubiquitous. But for this story, we found North Birmingham dragons at the zoo.

Here’s our handy tip sheet on where you can find them on “Dragon Day” and, in some cases, ways to support your local dragons.

See real live dragons at Birmingham Zoo

Want to see a real dragon? Visit them at Birmingham Zoo!

Last February, the zoo welcomed baby Philippine Sailfin Dragon triplets. Their names? Ezekiel, Nat and Tony. Don’t worry, they don’t steal or destroy villages. They are simply adorable. Here is the latest update from Zookeepers.

“Dragons grow fast! They just celebrated their first birthday and are making great progress in their training. They learn to take food with a pair of pliers. This skill will help animal care professionals weigh and monitor dragons. They are full of energy and love to jump, climb and hide!

If you’re looking for the Mythical Dragons, celebrate “Appreciate a Dragon Day” by checking out the Silk Lantern Dragons featured at the front of the Zoo Plaza during Glow Wild. There are only 2 days left to see them: January 16 & 17 from 5 p.m. at 9:00 p.m.

Buy a ticket online at www.birminghamzoo.com/glowwild or at the door.

UAB—Blaze

Ken Jackson, the philanthropist who donated the Blaze statue at the entrance to UAB Collat ​​School of Business, told us in 2018 why the dragon is such a powerful symbol for the Blazers and the UAB community.

“I am convinced that Blaze is one of the most intimidating and inspiring logos of any college in the country,” said Ken Jackson.

UAB went “all in” with Blaze. The beloved image of the dragon is painted on buses, and the mascot actually enters the protective stadium on a tank pulled by a motorcycle. You can even see a topiary of the winged fire-breathing creature on Campus Green.

Located at the southwest end of town, Wenonah High School’s motto is:

Where champions are created.

Over 750 students attend High School 5A, and over the past decade Mighty Dragons has produced 4 state champion boys and girls basketball teams each.

One way to celebrate “Enjoy a Dragon Day” is to contribute to the 2022 Wenonah High School Alumni Scholarship fund. Click here to visit their Donation form.

If you are traveling in the North Birmingham area, take a look at the dragon mural on 30th Avenue North behind the Maxway. The mural stands next to the North Birmingham Ecoscape and, according to Roald Hazelhoff, director of the Southern Environmental Center at Birmingham-Southern College, the building was once part of a film shot in the area.

Want to know more about the artists? To follow Mural Mammoth on Facebook.

Buy Dragon Art at ZooLN Art

A final way to appreciate a dragon is to purchase “dragon” art. One of our favorites is Sue Ellen Brown’s work at Homewood’s ZoolLN Art.

She has everything from jewelry to monograms. I especially like it whimsical Dracoseric alphabet, made entirely of dragons.

In summary: BBS becomes the official wheel supplier for Formula 1 from this season.

In short

BBS becomes official supplier of F1 rims

Japanese wheel manufacturer BBS has been named the “Official Rim Supplier” for Formula 1 and will supply wheels to all ten teams from this season.

The deal was announced at the Tokyo Auto Salon auto show. Previously, teams were free to source wheels from suppliers, with brands such as Oz and Enkei making wheels for various teams.

Formula 1 will switch from 13-inch wheels used for many decades to new low-profile 18-inch wheels in 2022. Tire supplier Pirelli will continue to supply tires to the world championship.

BBS will also supply standardized rims to the NASCAR Cup series as the American series is also introducing a new car following an overhaul of technical regulations.

Honda unites car and motorcycle racing programs under the HRC banner

Honda has announced that it will restructure its racing programs across all motorsports in 2022, consolidating its motor racing activities under its existing “Honda Racing Corporation” (HRC) division.

HRC has been the motorcycle racing wing of the Japanese giant for many decades now, running factory teams in MotoGP, World Superbike and MXGP motocross. Honda Director, President and CEO Toshihiro Mibe said combining their car and motorcycle racing programs in this way will help them “achieve mutual collaboration of technologies and know-how” and to make their motorsport operations more efficient.

“In order to meet the expectations of motorsport fans and Honda fans and customers around the world, we will continue to devote our energy to motorsport, through the ‘new’ HRC which integrates our motorcycle and motor racing activities,” said Mibe.

Honda will no longer act as official powertrain supplier to Red Bull and AlphaTauri after announcing their departure from Formula 1 at the start of last season. However, Honda will provide direct support to Red Bull’s new Red Bull Powertrains division, which will use Honda-designed technologies over the next few seasons.

Verstappen misses the pole of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual by two thousandths

Max Verstappen missed pole position for the virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans race by just 0.002 seconds during qualifying for today’s endurance simulation race.

The current Formula 1 world champion’s final qualifying lap in Team Redline’s LMP-class car was just two thousandths of a second slower than fellow Dutchman Jeffrey Reitveld in sister car Realteam Hydrogen Redline .

Red Bull Esports’ Corvette number 111 took pole position in the GT class for the 24-hour race which begins at 1pm UK time.

Correa and Red Bull juniors Crawford and Edgar return to F3 for 2022

Juan Manuel Correa has announced he will play a second consecutive season in Formula 3 after returning to the series last year.

The American driver made his return to racing in the series in 2021 after suffering serious injuries in a Formula 2 accident at Spa in 2019 which claimed the life of Anthoine Hubert. Correa finished 21st in the standings and then tested a Formula 2 car in Abu Dhabi at the end of the season.

Correa will race again for ART, joining rookie Gregoire Saucy. Red Bull juniors Jak Crawford and Jonny Edgar have also been confirmed for a second season each in this year’s Formula 3 championship.

Crawford will join Prema after racing for Hitech in his first season in the class last year, while Edgar will move from Carlin to Trident. Fellow Red Bull junior Isack Hadjar will also join the grid, racing with Hitech.

Ahead of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, UK, a program of events aimed at boosting trade and investment between India, the West Midlands and the UK has been announced. The virtual programme, which will take place during the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay in India (January 12-15), will bring together political leaders, Indian investors, business leaders from the West Midlands, the UK and the India, as well as international cultural icons, all to mark the Commonwealth Games as a unique opportunity to advance shared economic ambitions.

As part of the programme, a virtual showcase will take place, where key names from India’s business, tourism and cultural landscape can hear from UK government stakeholders including Alex Ellis, UK High Commissioner to the Republic of India and Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands. The talks will build on the strengthened trade partnership between the UK and India, opening up new opportunities for British companies exporting to India and Indian companies investing in the UK.

The UK Government’s Department for International Trade (DIT), in partnership with the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC), will host a high-level online roundtable bringing together UK and Indian business leaders. The event provides a forum to organize a cross-market dialogue on the main business opportunity in the future mobility sector – a major focus of the local West Midlands industrial strategy and represents an opportunity to increase two-way trade and investment in the existing West Midlands -India Corridor.

The Queen’s Baton travels to all 72 nations and territories of the Commonwealth for 294 days, connecting communities, businesses and embracing cultures around the world. During the four-day visit, the Indian Olympic Association (IOA), which is also the Commonwealth Games Association for India, will organize events featuring inspirational people who are fighting for change in their community. .

The activity marking the Queen’s Baton Relay’s arrival in India is just one of a series of engagements between the West Midlands and India through 2023 and beyond. Indian businesses and investors will be invited to the West Midlands during the Games, followed by a mayoral-led delegation to India in autumn 2022 to promote bilateral trade and investment opportunities. Key strategic focus areas will include Tech & Creative, Professional Services, Future Mobility and Data Driven Healthcare.

The West Midlands and India already enjoy strong trade links, with 57% of Indian investment in the UK in 2020 being in the West Midlands. The region is home to 76 registered Indian FDIs worth over £3.5 billion in the future mobility, creative technologies and modern business services sectors, employing over 13,000 people. The region’s strong business offering has already attracted some of India’s biggest companies, including Tata Motors, State Bank of India, Infosys, OLA, Enzen Global, Suprajit Group, Elder Pharmaceuticals and more recently BSA and Microland.

Dave Owen, Executive Director – Global Purchasing and Supply Chain at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “We are extremely proud to be both a member of the Tata family and a renowned global organization in our own right, with our roots proudly in the West Midlands. . The region is the hub of our international footprint in technology, engineering, R&D and manufacturing, thanks to its enviable pool of specialist talent, excellent connectivity and transport links and high performing industrial ecosystem. »

“The wider economic and social benefits of nurturing strong relations with India are compelling. Trade and investment create growth, jobs and regional prosperity, while close ties forged with business India allows greater UK access to some of the world’s leading technology, communications and software players – who in turn benefit from the deep industry expertise and capacity for innovation, for which the West Midlands are well known.”

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, said: “The West Midlands is the UK’s main location for attracting FDI outside of London, a number of India’s biggest names in automotive, manufacturing and financial services that have chosen to locate their UK operations here. The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games offer a real opportunity for the UK and India to build on these strong economic ties, as well as celebrate the region’s vast Indian heritage, with a ‘living bridge’ up close of 200,000 ethnic Indians who live and work in the West. Midlands. I look forward to addressing the Indian business community during the virtual events programme, celebrating the arrival of the Queen’s Baton Relay to India and showcasing all that the West Midlands has to support businesses and investors. looking to expand their international footprint. »

Alan Gemmell, Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for South Asia, said: “I am delighted that during the week the Secretary of State for International Trade is in Delhi to launch the global negotiations of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA), the West Midlands continues to deepen its relationship with India. UK trade with India in 2020 reached £18billion, with the West Midlands exporting goods and services worth £318million. Through our FTA and support for businesses across the UK, we aim to double trade with India by 2030. 2022 will be a pivotal year for UK-India relations. This summer’s Commonwealth Games will serve as an excellent backdrop and facilitate stimulating opportunities to celebrate the relationship between the West Midlands and India.”

The online events were organized as part of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Business and Tourism Program (BATP), designed to attract visitors, trade, events and investment to Birmingham in the West Midlands and to the UK from Commonwealth nations and territories, including India.

With an economy worth £105 billion, the West Midlands region comprises three thriving cities – Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton, with Birmingham home to more international businesses than any other major English city outside of London. In 2019, the West Midlands generated an export value of £32 billion – the largest region by value outside London and the South East.

Harjinder Kang, Cross-cutting Director, Intellectual Property, Indian Sourcing and Negotiations, Department of International Trade, said: “As the Queen’s Baton Relay arrives in India, the Department of International Trade is delighted to represent the ambition and richness of the innovation within the West Midlands to the Indian business community, in our most dynamic and successful sectors. The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and business and tourism program is a historic occasion and aims to create £7m in additional export deals and secure up to £900m in new investment foreigners in the West Midlands and the UK, with our international partners by 2027.”

Indian investors in the West Midlands – case studies:

Tata Motors – India’s largest automobile company and owner of JLR

Tata Motors, India’s largest automaker, acquired British company Jaguar Land Rover in 2008. Based in Coventry, UK, Jaguar Land Rover has firmly established the West Midlands as the engine of its operations, thanks to a network of production units and research facilities.

All Jaguar and Land Rover nameplates will be available in pure electric form by the end of the decade.

TVS Motors – acquired iconic British motorcycle brand Norton

In January 2021, Indian manufacturer TVS Motors announced a multi-million dollar investment to relocate the UK headquarters of subsidiary Norton Motorcycles to a new state-of-the-art facility in Solihull in the West Midlands. The investment follows the prior acquisition of the iconic British motorcycle brand by TVS Motors in April 2020. The premises will be the most advanced and modern factory for Norton in its 122 year history and the brand operations center. Providing a permanent base for all staff, the new headquarters will house the design, engineering, purchasing, sales, marketing and support teams as well as the skilled production team taking over the manufacture of motorcycles. The company’s decision was inspired by the region’s internationally renowned automotive hub of expertise, which is responsible for a third of all production in the UK.

Infosys BPM – a global business process management subsidiary of Infosys Ltd.

Infosys offers integrated end-to-end outsourcing and transformational benefits to customers through cost reduction, productivity improvement and process re-engineering.

Based in India, Infosys BPM operates globally and recently set up a UK based delivery center in the heart of the West Midlands.

At the 2021 edition of DJ Mag’s Best of British Awards, the public voted Gold: UK’s best DJ from a list of DJ Mag nominees. She now joins the ranks of other Best DJ winners, nominated alongside heavy hitters like Andy C, SHERELLE, Eats Everything and DJ EZ. Considering that Or: la won the Breakthrough DJ category at Best of British just five years ago, that is a testament to how shiny his star is right now.

Or: the is thoughtful and particular. She speaks in a soft Derry tune, her gaze emerging from a tuft of curly brown hair. Dooley recently moved to London, which she appreciates, except for the mysterious clicking sound coming from the apartment below, which disturbed her sleep. Surprisingly enough, during our conversation over tea and cookies, the landlady informs us that the apartment has been vacant for some time, leaving Or: la looking horrified.

Perhaps rightly so for someone attuned to the spiritual, Or: la grew up on Inch, a small island on the Irish border in County Donegal, on a rugged, cinematic stretch of coastline known as from Wild Atlantic Way. Unsurprisingly for an island of less than 500, it grew up surrounded by “wild birds, meadows, marshes and lakes,” and its closest neighbors were a waterfowl sanctuary. Dooley credits his distance education for activating his imagination at a young age.

“It really allowed me to be creative,” she says. “I guess boredom is important in that sense?” I’m sorry for the teenagers today who can’t reach this place of utter boredom, because they’re constantly entertained by TikTok, or whatever – because a lot of creativity can come from this place.

Hungry for entertainment, she and her siblings turned to music to keep themselves busy. Their early designs were heavily influenced by ‘country and western vibes’ – a genre still popular in rural Ireland – but their first musical love came in the form of the duo’s 1999 UK garage hit ‘Sweet Like Chocolate’. short-lived musical Shanks. & Bigfoot. She remembers hearing it on the radio and cycling around her yard in excitement.

“I remember thinking it was unlike anything I had ever heard before,” Dooley says. “After that I forgot that song for a long time, then the whole garage revival came back; it made me realize that I can really relate this song to the kind of music and sounds that I enjoy right now. Like, it’s always been there.

At the age of 13, Dooley moved from the idyllic Inch to more urban Derry to attend school. In Northern Ireland, schooling is still largely segregated on religious and cultural grounds, with 93% of children in Northern Ireland attending denominational schools. Moving to an area with more schools that match your family background is a fairly common experience.

Dooley attended a Catholic convent school, which she hated. As a then-closed queer young woman, she was frustrated by the Church’s outspoken antagonism towards the LGBTQ + community, and as a member of a non-religious family, her school’s religious bent left her isolated. . Upon entering school on Monday morning, she was instructed by her teachers on the content of the Sunday Mass sermon; his friends whispered the answers to him.

Years later, under the name d’Or: la, she would channel that rebellious spirit into the programming of her own gay-friendly club nights, a business she poignantly describes as “an antidote to shame and to the programming I’ve developed in the closet, and a way to unleash the power of that shame.

Bruce Wayne unmasked from Batman and the motorcycle relive at McFarlane Toys https://cjs-engraving.com/bruce-wayne-unmasked-from-batman-and-the-motorcycle-relive-at-mcfarlane-toys/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 20:52:35 +0000 https://cjs-engraving.com/bruce-wayne-unmasked-from-batman-and-the-motorcycle-relive-at-mcfarlane-toys/ Batman’s Bruce Wayne gets two new, highly detailed action figures from McFarlane Toys, depicting him as both a masked and unmasked wanderer.

Batman’s Bruce Wayne gets two new, highly detailed action figures from McFarlane Toys, depicting him as both a masked and unmasked wanderer.

A new collection of action figures from McFarlane Toys celebrates Matt Reeves’ upcoming superhero movie, The batman, bringing new versions of the Dark Knight, also known as billionaire Bruce Wayne, to the public.

The likeness of actor Robert Pattinson can be seen in both masked and unmasked versions of Wayne, alongside his motorbike. Named “Drifter,” the 7-inch action figures depict the billionaire as a thug, ready for the road with a removable backpack and separate motorcycle.

While no details have been provided as to where and how Bruce Wayne will adopt Drifter’s identity in The batman, the description of the toy teased, “In the guise of The Drifter, Bruce Wayne is able to infiltrate the Gotham City mob at ground level without revealing his true identity.” Meanwhile, the bike he rides is “a Café racer modified for top speed with minimal sparkle.” Each figure, including the motorbike, comes with a collectible art card.


So far, the marketing of The batman mainly focused on Wayne’s early years as the Caped Crusader and provided no real insight into the vigilante’s adventures as the masked “Drifter”. Presumably, the cloth mask and backpack will be used before Wayne acquires the armored suit and the bat-themed gadgets. Additionally, clips and photos released for The Batman focused on new film versions of familiar supervillains such as The Riddler and Penguin, played by Paul Dano and Colin Farrell respectively.

The figures recently announced by McFarlane Toys aren’t the only toys to offer the public a glimpse of what to expect. A series of Funko Pops! Figures have recently leaked online, giving fans a glimpse of the heroes and villains of the films, including Batman, Catwoman, Penguin and Riddler, as well as the Batmobile and Catwoman’s motorcycle.


As much attention as these villains get, the synopsis of The batman hints that there may be a third villain involved in the as-yet-unknown plot. A popular rumor suggests that this third villain could be the iconic Joker, with actor Barry Keoghan playing him. This was apparently confirmed by Keoghan’s own brother, who wrote on social media, “So it’s finally my brother playing the JOKER in the new Batman Unreal Stuff.” However, it should be noted that no official confirmation has been given.

the Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on March 4.

After 108 years of activity, Aston Martin finally entered the motorcycle market. Together with the French constructors of Brough Superior, the two companies have offered the world a new specialist racing motorcycle, aka AMB 001. The AMB 001 has been track tested and has recently become available for purchase by a few. very lucky and very rich.

A turbocharged engine, one of the first to spruce up a Brough Superior product, the bike features all kinds of remarkable specs and impressive entries in the engineering encyclopedia, such as lightweight carbon fiber body parts, meticulously designed geometries.

8 It is powered by a 61 cubic inch twin V engine

An 88-degree, 8-valve V-Twin engine drives this bike at around 180 horsepower and a transmission Aston Martin proudly announces fitted with a 6-speed pull-out gearbox and short, compact Morse timing chain. The bike is also the first Brough Superior model of any type to have a turbocharged engine.

Other highlights of this motorcycle’s powertrain design include a specially designed turbine to reduce turbo lag, water and oil cooling, and an exhaust manifold that Aston Martin claims to be derived from a “superalloy. “

seven It is built with carbon fiber parts

Specifically designed to be a trail bike, the AMB 001 has a titanium frame with a double wishbone fork design up front. The bike also has a carbon fiber subframe on the rear which helps the bike achieve balanced weight distribution.

Additionally, as a tribute to Aston Marton cars, the bike is designed with curved S-shaped fins, similar to those seen on the front of classic Aston Martins. The bike also has a carbon fiber spoiler attached and runs the full length of the bike from the top of the fuel tank.

6 Its track tests focused on handling and style

Tested on the Pau-Arnos track in France, a few kilometers from the Brough Superior factory where the bike is made, the testers mainly focused on the frame of the bike and its overall geometry, i.e. whether the exterior designs may or may not affect the performance of the bike.

Engine testing on the bike appeared to have been done more at the factory, however, on the track the bike’s engine performance and speed was increased thanks to the design cues that reduce turbo lag and the engine equipped with an intercooler running at track speed. The light weight of the parts mentioned above also contributes to the speed of the bike, as it only weighs 400 pounds (dry).

The Collaboration Bike is a special version that is uniquely hand built in the Brough Superior factory in France. Because each of the AMB 001 is so meticulously built, the cost of the bike is exponentially high.

Intended to become a target of bicycle collectors in the future, the first AMB 001 has a sticker price of over $ 120,000. It is important to note that the bicycle is a racing bicycle only and is not street legal by European, British or American standards.

With only 100 units sold, the identity of the first customers of this joint venture between Aston Martin and Boroughs Superior remains unknown. However, since the bicycle is not street legal for any of the markets where it will be introduced, it can be assumed that the bikes will end up either in the hands of very wealthy collectors or in the hands of racing teams in the Kingdom. United and Europe. .

It is also possible that Aston Martin will produce more bikes in the future. If demand for the 100 bikes to be produced meets the company’s expectations, more affordable versions could be produced. However, “affordable” is a subjective word when talking about an Aston Martin, as the brand specializes in luxury productions, which is why their decision to make a motorcycle is so unique.

Available in the sleek black paint topped with standard racing colors (red, green, white, etc.) for which Aston Martin is famous, the bike has a certain aesthetic reminiscent of the brand’s classic cars. Aston Martin Creative Director Mark Rerichman praised the special edition bike in a press release.

“In addition to applying the skills we have developed for cars such as the revolutionary Aston Martin Valkyrie, we were also able to bring our particular expertise in traditional craft techniques to this project. The end product is a truly magnificent motorcycle; a work of design and engineering art.


2 How does it compare to the competition?

Because biking isn’t street legal, and the bike costs over US $ 120,000, biking is definitely in a league of its own, especially since Aston Martin’s first foray into production of racing bikes.

Also, while its 180 hp is respectable, it represents a lower output for many bikes, even legal ones. Although less luxurious and without the lightweight carbon fiber design, motorcycles like the Ducati Panigale can reach over 210 hp. With luxury models starting at around $ 40,000, the Ducati is also much more user-friendly.

1 Why did Aston Martin decide to build a motorcycle?

Aston Martin had some difficult years. Stock prices fell on the stock market in 2018 and the Covid-19 pandemic affected sales of luxury brands.

In addition to market upheavals, Aston Martin has seen a corporate leadership overhaul, with CEO Andy Palmer is kicked out and replaced by Tobias Moraes. Between economic downturns and corporate redesigns, it would make sense for a stagnant brand like Aston Martin to venture into new territory to revamp its image, and working with Boroughs Superior on a limited production bike is the genre new territory where Aston Martin could shine. While they have created a remarkable track bike, only time will tell, it will be a smart enough move to restore public good faith in Aston Martin.

New York, NY— January 5, 2022 – Wolverine’s ongoing series returns in April with more thrills from the same all-star creative team, writer Benjamin Percy and artist Adam Kubert. Wolverine’s master storytelling duo delivered uninterrupted, action-packed adventures in what is shaping up to be one of Wolverine’s greatest races in recent history.

“For ten weeks, the X LIVES OF WOLVERINE / X DEATHS OF WOLVERINE will take readers on an epic, time-consuming adventure that sets up the next era of mutant books: Destiny of X. How do you track something like this? You keep raising the bar. Readers will experience not only a non-stop thrill ride starting in April, but also a launch story that’s as irreverent and hilarious as it is murderous, ”Percy promises. “We’ve been teasing Deadpool for a while now, and he’s intimidating his way through the pages of Wolverine for a wild (and reluctant) team that looks like a cousin of Midnight Run and The Fugitive.

“Every time a new character or story is introduced in WOLVERINE, it feels like a fresh start and an opportunity for Ben and I to reinvent the wheel,” Kubert said. “WOLVERINE # 20 is no exception with one exception. Deadpool is not a new character. Having drawn it before (most recently on the cover of DEADPOOL BLACK WHITE AND BLOOD # 1), I feel more like visiting an old friend. Things do change, yes, but our relationship remains the same. For me, DEADPOOL remains one of the greatest characters in MARVEL. Putting it alongside | / OLVERINE doesn’t get any better and I hope (and think) you will feel the same… Bub! ”

“I know it’s impossible to understand, but Adam Kubert has never been so good,” Percy said of his legendary collaborator. “Its stunning layouts – including a motorcycle action sequence for the ages – are second to none.

“Without giving away any spoilers, this is going to be an explosive and complicated year for the mutants,” added Percy. “You’ll soon learn how much the future of Krakoa (and the mutant genre) is in peril, and Wolverine will of course be in the center of it all, cutting and hacking.”

As 2021 drew to a close, December delivered the last twists of the year.

The death of Michael Nesmith – just a month away from the Monkees’ farewell tour – has saddened the music world, while Chicago has said much less permanently goodbye to one of its oldest members. Meanwhile, Neil Young and Tom Morello each reflected on their respective musical relationships, while former Journey frontman Steve Perry pondered what might be next.

Read on for a full rundown of December’s biggest headlines:

Death of Michael Nesmith

Neil Young looks back
In a December interview with Howard Stern, Neil Young discussed his departure from Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The rocker noted that in both cases his decision to leave came down to the same problem: He felt the bands “started to drift away” from why he first joined. “I haven’t broken with music; I have not broken with love. … I just wanted [the music] to be fed. I wanted to take care of it. If love was hurting because the situation was not right, I wanted to take the love somewhere else where it would be better, ”Young explained.
