city clash

Watermelon Stevens (live in a video game world)

Is it just me, or does the entire way of life of the Watermelon Stevens, look like they live in a city builder app/video game?

The first thing they teach you in the game tutorial, is how to grow your own crops for resources.

And then they tell you to build buildings in which your followers can live. (And as a paid feature, you can buy the mystic statue that doubles the speed of  all your crops’ growing.)

You have to get really strong and accumulate people and resources. Because at one point, you’ll have to fight some other village/city.

Upgrade your weapons–

And go compete to have the best city/village/farm/town/kingdom!

Smoke is seen billowing in the background on December 14, 2016 in this picture taken in a rebel-held neighbourhood in the northern city of Aleppo.  Deadly clashes erupted in Syria’s Aleppo as a deal for the evacuation of rebel areas was put on hold, leaving thousands of cold and hungry civilians uncertain of their future


“If you can’t stop the end of the world, how can you find hope?” showrunner Jason Rothenberg says. “Some people will cling to their loved ones, some people will fight to their last breath, and some people are just done fighting.”

Others will try to find someone to blame. Not only will Clarke clash with City of Light followers who preferred brainwashing to dying of radiation, she’ll also encounter Grounders like Ilian (new recurring cast member Chai Romruen, below), who faults the Sky People for bringing down the latest wave of technology and destruction in the first place.

“He was forced to do some horrible things while being driven by A.L.I.E.,” Rothenberg explains. “He’s dedicated to making sure that never happens again.”

But even if Ilian’s right, how will any of them survive? The key may be to look past tribal politics once and for all — something Bellamy (Bob Morley) begins to understand after sister Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) leaves him behind. “It’s human nature to save our families, our friends first,” says Rothenberg, adding, “Can you take a little bit less for yourself in order to let somebody else have something?”

Either way, they’re going to need a bigger bomb shelter.

“The 1987 Goths are a brazen bunch who openly admit to liking Free, Bad Company, Alice Cooper and Jimi Hendrix. The modern Goth bands are primarily The Cult and The Mission (whose lead singer Wayne Hussey is even a sex symbol). For boys and girls long hair is essential - as are tassles, leather, jewellery, henna, ribbon and studs. Dippy Hippy nonsense is eschewed, but so is the androgenous sexual flaunting of the early 1980s. The 1987 Goths frequent The Crypt, Kit Kat (again under new management), Alice in Wonderland, Sacrilege and Clash City. This is rock ‘n’ roll with no strings attached; just hair.” | i-D Magazine, April 1987

Mischa & Nigel

– Violent, unlucky, beautiful souls washed in with the tide, washed up in their solitude, thrown together like clashing stars. City streets, shattered memories; the daunting task of love in a frigid, helpless landscape. Two, clashing products of fearful upbringing, a red sky of uncertainty. Two people, making a single place for themselves on earth.
