disc covers


We are so ready(!!!!!)

During a total solar eclipse, the Moon moves between the Earth and the Sun. When this happens, the disc of the Moon appears to perfectly cover the disc of the Sun even though the Sun is much larger than the Moon. But how is this possible? 

The Sun is 400 times bigger than the Moon, but by sheer coincidence, the Moon is 390 times closer to Earth. Size and distance cancel each other out so that the Moon and Sun appear to be almost the exactly same size. Every time the Moon orbits the Earth, once every 27.3 days, it has to pass between the Earth and the Sun, a stage called the new moon phase. And every time it passes, the New Moon has a chance to block out the Sun. Most of the time, the Moon passes a little above or a little below the Sun, but if they align perfectly, the shadow of the Moon will make a narrow path across Earth and those in the shadows will see a total solar eclipse.

But while the moon perfectly covers the surface of the Sun, it doesn’t block out the Sun’s outer atmosphere, its corona, which appears as a fiery ring around the dark disc of the moon. Solar eclipses occur several times a year, but most often they are partial eclipses where the Moon doesn’t quite line up with the Sun. And, when the Moon and Sun are perfectly aligned, the Moon is usually too far from Earth in its orbit to completely cover the Sun, creating an annular eclipse. During an annular or partial eclipse, the sky remains bright. Even on those rare occasions of a total eclipse, the Moon’s shadow is most likely to fall on the 70% of Earth that is covered by water, and few people, if any, will see it.

TODAY’S eclipse will be remarkable on a larger scale because the Moon is slowly moving away from Earth. If a furry ancestor of ours had bothered to look up during a solar eclipse a hundred million years ago, it wouldn’t have seen the fiery corona of the Sun. It would have just been dark. Eventually, the Moon will have moved too far from Earth to completely cover the disc of the Sun. It is only during our little wink of Earth’s history that the Moon is at just the right distance to cause a total solar eclipse yet not block the Sun’s corona. So today, on August 21, 2017,when the Moon exactly lines up with the Sun and the Moon is close enough to the Earth, its shadow will cross the U.S. and, if you happen to be in its narrow path, you will witness one of the most awe-inspiring sights in the universe. BUT - remember - you can’t look directly at the sun, so….

Don’t forget your (hopefully legit) protective eclipse glasses!

Lana Del Rey says Donald Trump helped shape her album ‘Lust For Life’ — and the world needs feminism more than ever.
The singer has returned to the world of music with her fourth studio album in five years.

By Jacqui Swift for The Sun (UK).

LANA DEL REY’s latest album glitters with an all-star cast.
On ‘Lust For Life,’ her most impressive album yet, Lana teams up with heavyweights such as The Weeknd, Stevie Nicks, Sean Ono Lennon and A$AP Rocky.

They are the first collaborations in her career so far, which spans five studio albums, including four in the past five years — an impressive work rate for the Los Angeles-based star.

Halo: Incursion (Fan-Made Game Cover)

A little project I spent the last 24 hours on. I’ve always wanted to see what it’d be like if Ben was the star of his own standalone Halo project. Set in 2553, a few months after Halo 3, it would follow Ben (as a surviving Spartan-III from the Human-Covenant war) on his mission to take down a threatening warlord who seeks to wage another conflict against humanity.

The campaign’s length would be similar to your average Halo, but would also feature Firefight with up to four players. Plus, like Halo 3: ODST did back in 2009, Incursion would also include a seperate disc that comes with the full online experience for Halo 5: Guardians.

Hope you guys like this neat project I made!

Edited together in Photoshop, featuring posters from @commandernova702, @cfowler7-sfm, LordHayabusa357 and yours truly!

Hope you guys in Seattle get to attend Emerald city Comicon and support all the awesome folks at the artist alley. 

Regarding this concept, I Had the idea of using the non dominant hand of the tennis players as a shield arm. The top one has a clamp that traps the grenades and contains the explosions. Bottom one has disposable disc shields, the prong triggers the grenade keeping it at a distance from the player, and the disc covers the explosion and it’s discarded. More concepts tomorrow.

The Gerogerigegege, Ai-Jin (Love), burning/performance, 1988. (Fool’s Mate, no.84) / 7" single, flexi-disc, track: Cover Song Of Teresa Teng (鄧麗君).

Interview excerpt from Life Without Sex magazine 2001 :

“2000 flexi discs were made to be burned out in live from the beginning. So I had advertised it, on any kinds of musical magazines, as "Release Memorial Performance”. Many many people came on that day. Of course, they expected some performance, but all they could see was that I burned out all the discs in front of them. The remained discs were simply forgotten there to be brought. Well, I cannot answer your question “Why?” but can only say that this is THE GEROGERIGEGEGE! While I was burning out them, GERO 30 was having fun with his masturbation. Teresa Teng is a Taiwanese singer who once hits explosively the numbers in Japan.“ (Juntaro Yamanouchi)

ideas for a "Regular Show: The Complete Series" boxset of some sorts

So do you guys remember that boxset from one of the last episodes of season 8 of Regular Show? What if that actually becomes a thing in the near future? Here’s how I think it would be like.

-Contains both DVD and Blu-Ray. A version with both would be made and two seperate versions of JUST the DVD/Blu-ray would be released later.

-The boxset would go for around $60- $100 and would be sold at places such as FYE.

-Would be announced during Comic Con and would release around holiday 2017.

-Preorders would get a poster of the cast and a statue of Pops, similar to the one in the finale.

-The boxset will look exactly the same as in the last few episodes. (Photo of the main seven plus Eileen.)

-Unlike the boxset in the show, each disc isn’t a certain theme. Instead, it’s each season and the movie plus a few bonuses.

-Commentary included for every episode.

-First disc will be season 1. Will include every episode from the season plus the teaser trailer from Comic Con 2010, the commercials before and after its premiere, animatics, and the original pilot. The cover and disc has Mordecai.

-Second disc is season 2. Every episode plus a few commercials, animatics, and the music video for “Party Tonight”. The cover and disc has Rigby.

-Third disc is season 3. Every episode plus commercials, animatics, and the trailer for Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land. The cover and disc has Benson.

-Fourth disc is season 4. Every episode plus commercials and animatics. The cover and disc has Skips.

-Fifth disc is season 5. Every episode plus commercials and animatics. The cover and disc has Muscle Man.

-Sixth disc is season 6. Every episode plus commercials, animatics, and the first batch of shorts made for the show. The cover and disc has Hi-Five Ghost.

-Seventh disc is season 7 and the movie. Every episode and the movie plus commercials, animatics, the second batch of shorts, and the trailer for the movie. The cover and disc has Eileen.

-Eighth disc is season 8. Every episode plus commercials, animatics, teasers, the last few shorts, and a behind the scenes. The cover has Pops, while the disc has Anti-Pops.

-Deleted scenes COULD be added, if any.

Me: What do you think of this art?
Brother: ???
Me: What are the characters doing in this picture?
Bro: cuddling

Bro: No
Me: What are they, then?
Bro: Married?
Me: …well, you’re not exactly wrong
