I`ve been taking WAAAAAY too long with this, but heres a WIP (Work In Progress) of Zai and Madame Batsu as Kaiju.

My main concept with them is that their robots based upon the four zaibatsu kaiju and protect the fair city of Best Friend-opolis when Mattchanical is off doing some hype stuff in Cuba.

Im still unsure which will be Zai and the other Batsu.

(much may change when im done)

From Gino Soccio’s early productions in Witch Queen to his robotic, Italo-inspired masterpiece “Remember,” this 57-minute mix takes a portrait of the disco artist as a young man.

I read the Wax Poetics article ( http://www.waxpoetics.com/features/articles/invisible-man ) and wanted to put it in a link to a remix on Good, Free Music. While googling, it, I ran across this awesome mix. Educate yourself in Disco Info.

Send me “Some Other You” and I’ll introduce you to an AU version of my character!

Not Twins AU

Tate sat, holed up in his room as the rest of his family enjoyed themselves with a game of Pokéopoly.

Mistake.

The word had haunted him for years. His older sister, so shining and bright and the complete opposite of him, was the golden child. The wanted one. He was the mistake. Three years younger than Liza and always overlooked.

They didn’t care what he did. About his perfect grades and college recruitment offers. Acting out only got him yelled at, even if Liza - perfect little Liza - seemed to understand.

Maybe it wasn’t fair to them to harbor this much resentment. But Tate didn’t care. He was just so angry, and all the time.

"Maybe I’ll go join Team Magma," he muttered darkly, eyes flashing as a photo frame smashed into the wall. "Then they’ll pay attention."

"Tate?"

Liza’s voice nearly scared him out of his skin. “What?” He hissed, leering at his sister.

If she was scared or put off by his seething, Liza didn’t show it. She never seemed to lash back at him; always kind. Always obnoxious. “I know you said you’d rather read about astrology than play the game with us, but I still dealt you in, just in case?” The offer hung there between them. Tate hated the hopeful gleam in Liza’s blue eyes.

What he hated more was the urge to go join them. She seemed so eager and genuine… With a sigh, Tate walked over to the shattered glass and picked up the broken frame. Much to his surprise, the glass floated out of the way, blocking him from slicing his hands or feet on the shards. Whirling around, he watched the now careful look in his sister’s eyes as she moved the glass into a waste bin.

Seeing Tate’s bewildered look, Liza winked and said, “You’re not alone, little brother.” Liza then skipped down the hall, leaving the words to sink in to her brother’s thick skull.

{{ idek if that counts but I’m on mobile so I can’t tag or anything. I went for the day in the life of AU Tate and Liza instead of saying “yo this is how they are” }}

Millionaire-opolis: Which cities do the rich call home?

By Shawna Ohm, Yahoo Finance, Aug. 6, 2014

If you’re hoping to meet a millionaire, London is calling.

The city famous for Big Ben and the Tower of London is quickly becoming famous for its towers of cash. According to a new study by South Africa-based New World Wealth, Britain’s capital city boasts the most millionaires in the world—376,600.

“London is the world’s global city,” points out Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Aaron Task. “You have very wealthy people from all over the world migrating to London. It’s also a huge financial capital.”

Broken down based on population, that means 1 in every 36 people in London is a millionaire. (Food for thought the next time you find yourself in a crowded Tube car.)

What’s more, while 1 in 36 may seem like a huge ratio, London is in a measly sixth place when it comes to millionaires per capita. In Geneva, which wins this category, one in every 13 people is a millionaire. Or how about 4th place San Francisco? One in every 32 people is a millionaire there—talk about Golden Gate.

Being a millionaire is one thing. Being a multi-millionaire (which New World Wealth defines as assets over $10 million) is an entirely different story.

The city with the most multi-millionaires is not London (third place) or even New York (second), but Hong Kong.

Part of the reasons global cities fall where they do in this ranking is tax codes. Paris millionaires, for example, may move to London to avoid the French wealth tax.

“[They think: ‘London] is obviously a very cosmopolitan city; I can live very well and my tax rate’s going to be so much lower,’” Task said.

But that appeal also comes with a downside. As Task points out, London sees an influx of foreign multi-millionaires in the summer, dubbed “the season.” For London residents, this can prove a nuisance. Streets become crowded with Bugattis and Mercedes.

If you’re worried about America’s lack of first place standings in all of this—don’t be. The United States still has the highest number of millionaires overall—with 4.1 million millionaires.

The U.S. also tops the list for most multi-millionaires—with 183,500—about seven times as many as runner-up China.

More than rankings, the report also looked at trends in money.

The number of millionaires in the world has grown 58% in the last 10 years. The number of multi-millionaires has jumped by 71%.

In total, about 13 million of the world’s more than 7 billion people are millionaires. Which, if you do the math actually works out to just under .2% of the population, far less than the storied 1%.
