Waking up should be a grand act full of coughing and butt scratching.
This morning included a slap to the face from Capcom’s announcement of 5
new characters for Street Fighter X Tekken, but for the Playstation3 and Vita. The character list just adds to the sting.
Kuro/Toro (Sony mascots)
Focusing on which characters matter, the men come to Street Fighter X Tekken in unconventional fighting form. Mega Man is all grown up sporting his original US box art look and proudly strutting a beer gut. Pac Man jumps into the fight riding a wooden robot and shooting out to bash enemies with his ball like body. Sure people who own Sony products have the other two, or three, but who really cares. Cole doesn’t have anime eyes and suffering from girl problems and the cats aren’t drunk. Why would this grand news leave a mark on my face? I own a 360. Microsoft, if you are not going to give me a real Metal Gear to play least at least make Mega “Gut” Man a playable character. Even as DLC, Please?

From I Am Los Angeles ” El Mac and Retna are street artists, born in LA. They use building walls as blank canvases for their imagery, and the duo has collaborated to create murals all over the world. El Mac and Renta have very different styles, and have been collaborating the last few years. They combine their artistic forces in a specific way: El Mac creates huge lifelike portraits and Retna, calligraphic brushwork and decoration. The result is striking imagery that is unique and recognizable as theirs. It’s not uncommon for street art fans and documentarians to gather to watch the progression of an El Mac and Retna work in progress. ”

From laweekly ” Two weeks ago, the L.A. street artist Revok ended his six-month prison sentence amid fans pushing for his release. Revok was one of the participating artists in the groundbreaking ‘Art in the Streets‘ MOCA exhibit — then was promptly jailed by the Los Angeles Police Department for failing to pay restitution to plaintiffs and victims of his graffiti in a long-standing suit dating back to 2010. Now he’s out, but still faces a mound of legal fees and an exorbitant bail, set at a cool third of a million. In the mean time, his friends have come together to lend him a hand, and help him get back on his feet. Thierry Guetta, a.k.a. Mr. Brainwash, the elusive and controversial subject of Banksy’s Exit through the Gift Shop, has created a limited-edition art print entitled Never Give Up, dedicated to Revok. Guetta tells LA Weekly that the proceeds from the sales of the work will function as a general supporting fund for Revok — “bail, apartment, whatever he needs.” “
