‘El MacroMural Barrio de Palmitas’, Street Artists Turn a Troubled Hillside District Into a Colorful Mural

El MacroMural

Street artists, The GERMEN, in cooperation with the Mexican government, has turned the troubled hillside district of Palmitas in Pachuca into a giant, brightly colored mural entitled “El MacroMural Barrio de Palmitas“. The crew recruited local youth to help paint the over 20,000 square meters of 209 homes, thus creating positive distraction and paying jobs for the disaffected youth of the town. The GERMEN use the concept of public art to help bring pride back to Mexican cities.

(translated) There is potential for interaction and artistic innovation, so we opted to understand the public space as the scene of daily social interaction to be met by educational functions, potentialities, material and tangible, where the aim is to satisfy the needs of collective development beyond of individual and economic. Our work is an artistic offering to our cities because by colors shapes textures and mixed techniques. We share our way of doing and understanding art, seek to detonate the seed as possible to strengthen the heart and enthusiasm who lives in places that we intervene. We rehabilitate public space making it more useful for those who inhabit a place to educate, motivate, help intake and germinate a new relationship between citizens and their environment and expressions which there converge OUR GOAL. Creating murals is a heritage work that uses public space as a means of communication.

3 3/4-Inch Tall ‘Breaking Bad’ ReAction Figures Featuring Walter White and Jesse Pinkman

Breaking Bad Reaction Figures

Funko and Super7 have teamed up to create a great set of 3 3/4-inch tall Breaking Bad ReAction Figures featuring a “Cook” version of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman as well as an intimidating “Heisenberg” version of Mr. White. The three figurines are available to purchase online from ThinkGeek.

It’s hard to be intimidating when you’re only 3 3/4″ tall. Although we are intimidated by many things that are smaller. Wasps, for instance. Fire ants, while we’re in the great outdoors. Oh, and MRSA. That’s seriously tiny.

But the Blue Sky produced by these 3 3/4″ tall Breaking Bad ReAction Figures from Funko and Super7 would be on the scale of something like those colored sugar crystals you put on cookies and cupcakes. Choose Heisenberg, Jesse Pinkman (Cook), or Walter White (Cook). Heisenberg comes with a gun. The “cook” versions of the boys come with respirator masks. Other than that, how you accessorize them is totally up to you, although we’ll admit we might have ants in our display cabinet shortly.

A series of underwater photographs by photographer Brandi Mueller capture a graveyard of sunken World War II planes off the coast of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Mueller explained to Mashable that the planes had not crashed, but rather they were discarded there after the war because it would have been too expensive to transport them back to the United States.

The planes sit on the ocean floor 130 feet below the surface and are a popular site for divers.
