 Nerds and sex appeal are not always synonymous, so when we discover a gorgeous geek our attention is grabbed and our phases are set to… (You know the rest. -Ed.) How long have you been dancing? I took my first dance class in April of 2001 and have been performing since August of that same year. My first performance was at the Alton, IL YWCA. What got you into dancing? I was looking for a way to make new friends after moving to St. Louis. My mom had taken bellydance classes in the early 80’s and she suggested I try it. That week I saw a flyer for bellydance classes at a shopping mall and decided it must be fate. […]

Wolfenstein: The New Order Pre-Review

 

 The Wolfenstein franchise started in 1981, becoming popular in 1992 when ID Software took over the development. Wolfenstein 3D invented the genre of FPS and served as a prototype for DOOM. This will be the first Wolfenstein since 92 not developed by ID software, being developed by MachineGames and published by Bethesda Softworks. The game however is built on the id Tech 5 propriety engine. Note this in not the first time ID has outsourced development of a game but usually had still overseen development. Wolfenstein: The New Order continues the story of series protagonist William “B.J.” Blazkowicz who is tasked with launching an “impossible” counter-offensive against the Nazi powers that have taken over the world. (Yes, they seem to […]

Cave Troll’s Top 5 Monty Python Skits

 

 “Listen, strange women lyin’ in ponds distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.” -Monty Python. Welcome one and all to my top 5 list of skits by the hit British comedy group, Monty Python. (If you don’t know who they are you are about to learn. If you don’t like them, then there is an entire circle of hell dedicated to destroying you…) Monty Python first aired on the BBC on the 5th of October 1969 and while this may seem outdated to many of you (Philistines!), their comedy has stood the test of time. The group comprised of 6 members, […]

Retinal Burn!

 

 Today we speak to local band, Retinal Burn! What’s the origin of that name? It is from eye damage that can occur from staring at the sun or other bright objects for too long. It was just something I though worked with the type of music we were making at the time. What genre of music do you consider your work to be? I would classify it as experimental electronica, with synthpop and industrial influences. History of your project? In the early 2000s I was the lead vocalist and songwriter of the Goth Rock band Disciples of Sorrow. There were so many other kinds of songs running around my head that just didn’t fit into the goth genre. I started […]

Eöl Swords.

 

   Swords, most cos-play people use them, most geeks love them, most “normals” fear them… and with good reason. A skilled smith can create the superior technology that will give you the cutting edge. BUT, what if you want a real sword, a display sword,  a sword of +100 fatality? Who do you talk to? Well, we here at 925|Rebellion know of only one place to go… Eöl Swords. And today, we were lucky enough to interview them. Why swords? As a teenager it was all swords, swords, swords, from Tolkien books to knights and Celts and crusaders. I asked (begged) my parents to let me have a forge in the outside storeroom – NO. So I studied Architecture then […]

The Order: 1886.

 

 “I believe that a man is the strongest soldier for daring to die unarmed.” -Mahatma Gandhi. The Order: 1886 – released exclusively for Playstation 4 – is set in an alternate version of London, and revolves around a group of highly skilled “knights” who defend the city from the numerous threats posed by human-animal hybrids. The game features a lot of British mythology, with King Arthur leading The Order of the Round Table. The game was developed by Ready at Dawn (God of War), and shall feature only single-player mod. (Which is a shame, as it would be a great multi-player game. -Ed.) “The first virtue in a soldier is endurance of fatigue; courage is only the second virtue.” -Napoleon Bonaparte.

Five Classic Horror-Comedies You MUST watch!

 

 “They’re coming to get you Barbara” -Night of the Living Dead Today we look at a few of the great Horror-Comedies that have made my life, and many others, enjoyable and deliciously twisted. “Kill her, Mommy! Kill her! Don’t let her get away, Mommy! Don’t let her live!” -Friday 13th Braindead (1992) This film was written and directed by Peter Jackson and his wife Fran Walsh.

Subhasis Banerjee.

 

 Today we speak to Indian film-maker, Subhasis Banerjee. Subhasis produces small indie films and productions, though he has bigger plans on the horizon. When did you first know you wanted to become a film maker? Well I’ve liked to watch movies from childhood. I used to participate in dramas in our school and many other places. I guess that’s the time when I decided of becoming a film-maker. What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you? It’s hard to say what inspired me. But truly speaking, some films directed by renowned Bengali film directors Sattyajit Roy and Rittwik Ghatak inspired me a lot. Such films like Pather Panchali, Meghe Dhaka Tara have always been an inspiration to me. My […]

Bone Collector

 

 “It wasn’t a branch sticking out of the ground; it was a hand. The body’d been buried vertical and the dirt piled on until just the forearm, wrist and hand protruded. She stared at the ring finger; all the flesh had been whittled away and a woman’s diamond cocktail ring had been replaced on the bloody, stripped bone.” –The Bone Collector. The first grisly murder scene that the beautiful beat cop, Amelia Sachs, sees would have destroyed a lesser person. This murder scene and her logical and professional reactions change her life. Later she is called to the apartment of Lincoln Rhyme, a bitter quadriplegic hell bent on suicide, who takes on this case before he leaves the world behind. […]
