Cuphead Cartoon Is Coming to Netflix

first_img Considering how brutally difficult the shooter-platformer gameplay is, you’d think most people wouldn’t be able to stand more than five minutes of Cuphead. And yet players kept coming back for more and more punishment because each death just gave them another chance to admire the game’s utterly exquisite art and animation.Drawing from classic cartoons of the 1930s (even brushing up against their more problematic elements) Cuphead made players feel like they were inside a jazzy interactive work of art from the earliest days of Disney. And if you want to enjoy that art without wanting to smash your controller at the same time, soon you can with the new Cuphead streaming show coming to Netflix.As reported by our sister site IGN, The Cuphead Show! (also starring Mugman) is a new throwback cartoon coming to the streaming TV service thanks to Netflix, the developers at Studio MDHR, and King Features. While Cuphead’s original creators are involved, Netflix itself is handling the animation, which will feature more digital assistance than the animation in Cuphead the video game. But the hand-drawn aesthetic should remain intact. Producers have previously worked on cartoons like Rocko’s Modern Life, SpongeBob SquarePants, and Mickey Mouse.The show will follow the adventures of the two beverage brothers in their home of Inkwell Isle and will hopefully include the colorful boss characters as well. The Devil? The show will be much more family friendly compared to Netflix’s other video game adaptation Castlevania but adults should appreciate the humor as well.There’s no release date for The Cuphead Show on Netflix yet. Good animation takes time. Meanwhile, play Cuphead the game now on Nintendo Switch and soon on Tesla cars for some reason. And look forward for to the Delicious Last Course level pack coming next year.

Lego Unveils Friends 25th Anniversary Central Perk Set

first_img The New Lego UCS Imperial Star Destroyer Is Nearly Four Feet LongLego Makes Building Sets Accessible to the Blind Stay on target It’s a little hard to believe, but it’s been 25 years since Friends made its debut. The show’s final episode was watched by 52.5 million Americans, which, at the time, made it the fourth-biggest finale in TV history.A run of 10 seasons and 236 episodes earns a show a place in television history. It also earns that show a sweet commemorative Lego set.Could we BE any more excited to build Central Perk?! #Friends25 https://t.co/ID4dAfG8TZ pic.twitter.com/MQDHFnym4V— LEGO (@LEGO_Group) August 8, 2019Just in time for the 25th anniversary this September, Lego has unveiled Central Perk. It’s the latest Ideas pitch to get packaged up for sale.The set was selected by Lego’s panel back in February. They’ve tweaked the design to make more retail-friendly, reducing the overall size and cutting the piece count down from just over 1700 to 1070 (15 of which are coffee cups). That helps simplify the build a bit and it also keeps the price down.Central Perk is a fantastic brick-built take on one of the show’s most iconic sets. It starts outside with the red and white striped awning and the big Central Perk logo on the window. Open up the double doors and there’s the stage where Phoebe belted out memorable tunes like Smelly Cat.The big, comfy, orange couch and coffee table the gang gathered around pops off easily for play or posing. Click it back on to its spot near the counter, where you’ll find Gunther waiting serve customers because neither Rachel or Joey was ever particularly good at it.Lego did a great job on the minifigs — just check out Joey’s how you doin’? face, Ross’ perfectly messed-up hair, Monica’s super-cool suspenders.Chandler’s got his sweet laptop with 12MB of RAM, 500MB hard drive, and a modem that transmits at over 28000bps. Rachel, naturally, is carrying a tray and mug like she did for three seasons, and Phoebe is ready to strum her very detailed acoustic guitar.There’s also a pizza box and a nice big slice, because pizza appeared at some point in pretty much every episode.Central Perk goes on sale September 1st, and Lego has priced it at a very reasonable $59.99. Most importantly, you don’t have to go to Yemen to get your hands on it.See Central Perk  on Lego.comMore on Geek.com:This Treehouse Is Lego’s Most Sustainable Set YetLego Built a Life-Sized Astronaut to Celebrate Apollo 11 50th AnniversaryLego Adds Two More ‘Overwatch’ Sets: Wrecking Ball and Junkertownlast_img read more

Blind Onion is worth taking a closer look

first_imgWhy: The Blind Onion was first established in Portland in 1996. It has since grown to include four restaurants in the Vancouver area, including the one in the Orchards area that I recently visited. Fred, Blind Onion’s mascot, gives the establishment some original, quirky appeal beyond the neighborhood pizza reputation they have become known for.What I tried: My dining companions and I decided on the garlic cheesy bread, the Greek chop salad, the General’s pizza and the Chicken Parmesan pizza.The garlic cheesy bread was phenomenal. Fresh baguettes were halved lengthwise and brushed with oil before being loaded with a copious amount of unadulterated, fresh-chopped garlic, mozzarella cheese and Italian herbs. It was then placed into the pizza oven, where the bread became slightly crusty on the edges, and the cheese melted down between all of the garlic pieces and started to bubble. In my opinion, it was among the best garlic cheese breads I have tried, mostly because of the amount of garlic.Both pizzas were appetizing and had their strengths and weaknesses. The pizza crust was somewhat thin with a hearty, twisted edge. It held up well under the toppings. The Blind Onion tradition would have diners use the honey packets in the condiment six-pack to drizzle on the pie’s edge and enjoy it as a dessert.The Chicken Parmesan pizza had a scant amount of red sauce used as the base. The sauce’s flavor went unnoticed amid the cheese, chicken and herbs. The precooked chicken was predictably dry. More of the red sauce could bring more pizzazz to this pie.last_img read more

Shoring up a key wetland in Camas

first_imgCAMAS — In the 1980s, the Lacamas Shores biofilter was among the first of its kind in the nation. The system filters stormwater at the existing wetland before it enters Lacamas Lake using a system of French drains known as “bubblers,” filters and herbaceous grasses that collect any remaining toxins.“It was a good design for that era,” said Camas City Administrator Pete Capell. “Unfortunately, little to no maintenance was done, and then things have overgrown. Where there was initially intended to be some grasses, trees have come up and it’s clearly not functioning the way it was intended.”Some in the neighborhood want to clear out the trees that have grown in the wetland to restore views and, in theory, raise property values. Homes in the Lacamas Shores neighborhood list for $1 million or more.Capell said improving a view and increasing home values can’t be used as justification to alter the wetland’s landscape.“I understand why they are concerned about that, but that’s not a basis for just going in and cutting down trees,” he said. “If they’d been doing routine maintenance, we probably wouldn’t be in the dilemma today.”The conflict has been brewing for years.“This whole thing began in earnest four years ago, but in reality it goes back 18 years,” said Steve Bang, a Lacamas Shores resident and chairman of the neighborhood’s common area land use committee. “A group of us noticed that there was an issue, property values were being decreased. Over time, it migrated and changed into not only that but the fact the biofiltration system wasn’t working anymore.”last_img read more

They are Kelso police officer Frank Konen and Rainier Police Chief Ralph Painter.Konen was shot and killed at the age of 33 in March 1948 by Oscar Rogers, an intoxicated man who had just torn apart a hotel room.Konen and two other officers were attempting to arrest Rogers that night, according to TDN records. Konen told his fellow officers to go back to the station, and that he would stick around to make sure things quieted down.last_img read more

Mourinhos transfer warning for Man Utd

first_imgManchester United manager Jose Mourinho has warned the club’s board that they will be facing a ” difficult season” if they are unable to bring in new talent before the end of the transfer window on ThursdayThe Portuguese coach is certain that United require another two players before the start of the new season on Friday, where they will be taking on Leicester City in the opening game of their Premier League campaign at Old Trafford.While Mourinho has signed Brazilian midfielder Fred, full-back Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant, he remains unsatisfied and is still in search of a new centre-back.The likes of Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld and Yerry Mina have all been heavily linked with United this summer but with the transfer window closing early on Thursday this year, Mourinho and United are running out of time.And the 55-year-old is clearly frustrated by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward’s inability to bring in new recruits.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“My CEO knows what I want for quite a long time,” said Mourinho, as stated on MEN.“He knows what I want, I know that he tries to do the best for me and I still have a few days to wait what is going to happen.“The other clubs that compete with us are really strong and have already fantastic teams and squads, like Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, or they are investing massively like, for example, Liverpool, that is buying everything and everybody.“So if we don’t make our team better it will be a difficult season for us.”United ended their bitter pre-season campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Sunday.last_img read more

The Small Island Developing States Conference was seeking ‘Pathways for Accelerated Uptake of Renewables…’ these initiatives continue to be top conversation for TCIG with the Governor expounding regularly on the high cost of electricity and the need for a strong drive to find less expensive alternatives. Minister Amanda Misick said in the press statement that, “The exposure gives us the opportunity to see how similar countries are tapping into available resources to implement alternative energy options and curb rising energy cost for its population.” Many countries in the region and around the world were able to showcase their actions toward this end at the conference; the Turks and Caicos appears to be behind with only FortisTCI – the privately owned power company for the country – giving reports on their private studies. Media is informed that among the models showcased at the conference from which the Turks and Caicos can benefit were grid integration, grid stability studies, suitable biomass, renewable desalination systems and waste-to-energy applications.

Bahamian man busted Prosecutor unable to make smuggling case stick

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 05 Aug 2015 – A alleged Haitian smuggling ring emanating out of The Bahamas may have been busted up when officials made an arrest which led to a Bahamian man being remanded for three months on an illegal entry charge. The prosecution could not get the six Haitians believed to have been smuggled into the TCI on a go-fast boat to offer up any evidence, so Vernon Roosevelt Pinder could not be charged with the more serious suspicion. Public Prosecutor Clement Joseph was forced to drop that charge as the six Haitians, namely: Woodline Faustin, Marie Arielle Azemar, Rosny Jean Charles, Elimar St. Martin, Solange Pierre and Wesley Orilus declined helping authorities. It is said a call to marine police by residents led to the capture of the illegals in the Cooper Jack Bay area of Provo. Jean Charles and Pinder were found hiding in bushes in Cooper Jack. Vernon Pinder and all six Haitians appeared in court last week and were sentenced to spend three months in Her Majesty’s Prison.

PM Tours Areas Devastated by a Tornado in Grand Bahama

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, September 15, 2017 – Grand Bahama – Members of the Government, the Opposition, and NEMA are working together as a team to improve the quality of life for Bahamians, said Prime Minister of The Bahamas, Dr. the Hon. Hubert Minnis during a statement to the press following a tour of the areas destroyed by a tornado on Sunday.Prime Minister Minnis, along with members of his Cabinet, NEMA, and other senior government officials, on Thursday, September 14, toured Bimini and then Freeport to view damage done caused by Hurricane Irma, including the impacts of tornadoes.Accompanying the Prime Minister and his team was Leader of the Official Opposition, the Hon. Philip ‘Brave’ Davis, whose presence Prime Minister Minnis said was important as he too would have seen the problems.While the codes in place are good, enforcement is very important the Prime Minister stressed.   While visiting the homes destroyed by the tornado, they noticed the hurricane straps were not properly placed and the trusses were not consistent.In Bimini, he said, there was some damage to docks resulting in floating foam in the waters.   These matters, he continued, must be investigated to see what may have contributed to this happening so that it does not recur.He said, “What that points out to me is that we possibly have excellent codes but our enforcement is not in place.    And we must improve on our inspection, and that is very serious.”“All of us would work together, NEMA, the Opposition, ourselves and we have one job, one purpose, and that is to improve the lives of Bahamians…. It’s a learning experience, and whomever is in power would have the responsibility to ensure that the enforcements are there.”The Prime Minister reiterated that working as a team, great things could be accomplished.   “Who would have thought that as a team The Bahamas, as small as we are, would succeed in evacuating individuals from throughout the Bahamas by airlift.   It’s never been done before, and we were the first to go down in history to be successful.”Although there were some errors and some things could have been done better, in future, he said, in working together “we will most certainly have a more powerful, strong, beautiful  Bahamas.”After arriving in Grand Bahama shortly after 12:30 p.m., the Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers, Members of Parliament and other senior government officials first went to Imperial Park where a number of homes were hit by a tornado on Sunday.   The residents had the opportunity to speak with the Prime Minister and state their needs and concerns.A luncheon was held at Pelican Bay Hotel; and following his brief statement to the press, the Prime Minister and his delegation departed for their next destination at about 3:00 p.m. Press Release: BIS Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppcenter_img Related Items:last_img read more

The main reason for the 11.2 percent drop in violent crime can largely be traced to a decline in the number of robbery reports made to the city, from 1,969 to 1,346, according to the SANDAG report.Reported property crimes fell 34.6 percent overall from the 2008 high and show decreases in every category from then to 2018, but the drop is most noticeable for motor vehicle theft, which fell from 10,186 to 4,681, the report found.Reports of rape have spiked in recent years, reaching a peak of 604 this year, more than double the county’s low of 298 reports in 2011. However, the increase is somewhat deceiving, as California law enforcement broadened the definition of rape in 2015 to include “male victims, sodomy, penetration with any body part or object, and no longer requires force,” according to SANDAG Division Director of Criminal Justice Dr. Cynthia Burke.“As a result, some crimes that would have been classified as aggravated assaults are now considered rapes and some crimes that would not have been considered violent crimes are now captured in these statistics,” Burke said.Violent crimes include homicide, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. Property crimes include burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft. According to the report, San Diego law enforcement has received an average of 30 reports of violent crime and 153 reports of property crime per day during 2018’s first half.

Kristin Gaspar, the Chair of the Board organized a conference Tuesday at the County Administration Center to hear from health care professionals, law enforcement, and social service providers about building a more robust continuum of care for those who suffer from mental health and behavioral problems.According to a recent survey, nearly 9% of adults in the county reported being in serious psychiatric distress in the last year. More than 4% of San Diego County adults said they have suffered from a serious mental illness.The head of the county’s Behavioral Health Services, Dr. Luke Bergmann told the supervisors that those numbers are equal to or greater than the number of county residents who have Type 2 diabetes.District Attorney Summer Stephan told the supervisors that the psychiatric emergency response team received 34,000 calls last year, an increase of 24%. While most people may think of taking a loved one to the nearest hospital emergency department, Stephan suggested adding another option; urgent care centers for mental health.“It’s something that is not an emergency room, it is not a jail, but something in-between that is working in Los Angeles,” Stephan said.Providing continuing care after the crisis is over is another area of concern.“What we need more of in San Diego County is better coordination between ongoing care capacity and the crisis stabilization services,” Bergmann said.He said behavioral health should be more fully integrated with the larger health care system, “so that the care we give to folks with behavioral health conditions is really a part, an indistinguishable part of our mainstream health care system.” center_img Updated: 10:23 AM Sasha Foo, Posted: October 30, 2018last_img read more
