Hardcore Nine Inch Nails fans got a special treat last week when Trent Reznor and company hid tickets to a private concert all over Los Angeles. More than twenty question marks appeared on a Google Earth map that NIN put out on their tour page. The question marks were labeled with phrases like "Men's room. Behind the mirror. Be discreet," and "Incredibly ugly hat. Last pair of tickets." Quick-thinking fans noted the GPS coordinates of question marks and set off on a treasure hunt, much like geocachers.
Papercraft DIY time! Tubbypaws, a blog of happy art, created a template to build your own paper ceiling cat. Print, cut, fold, glue, and tape it to your ceiling- presto, an instant feeling of eerieness. There's even a Lucifer Cat edition. If you make one, be sure to post a picture with your new friend on MIX. (sent in by Justine, thanks!)
This week we're spotlighting Vincent, who has been a long-time member of EPIC FU's MIX community.
Vincent recently wrote a novel titled After Were Free , a story loosely based on his experience in Iraq as an American soldier in his early twenties. He says he threw in a lot more to exemplify many of the things he learned from the people.
So here is the first in a series of future Epic-Fu wallpapers. Have an idea for one? Let me know and I'll see if I can mock one up! :)
