Interview with Stephen Amell and Andrew Harding's Nocking Point
Men only drink beer and women only drink wine. Right? Wrong. Arrow actor Stephen Amell and longtime friend Andrew Harding stand behind the ideology that dudes can still be dudes and drink wine. In 2012 they created Nocking Point Wines, a winery located in Walla Walla Valley, now home to the popular tri-monthly subscription box service The Wine Club.
This Fictional Memo to the President from 1989 Predicted Terrorism in the US
Editor's Note from Omni, 1989: On my corner, the drug guys hang out cracking (which in this context means trading insults) until launched to the pay phone by their beeping pagers. Current fashion dictates that you clip these in the bottom crook of pants pockets.
New 'Star Wars' Trailer 'The Last Jedi' Is Released
Star Wars fans have been anticipating the release of the new The Last Jedi trailer since the rolling credits of The Force Awakens appeared on the big screen. Unfortunately, Disney took their time and they made us wait – more than one year –for the trailer. Fortunately, we had Rogue One and a few Untitled Han Solo Film photographs released. All I have to say is, thank goodness Disney didn't wait until May The Fourth to release the trailer. I wouldn't be able to go another month until knowing who The Last Jedi is (or, are). Since The Force Awakens premiered in December 2015, fans have speculated over the lineage of Rey, the fate of Han, the mysteries surrounding Luke, and who the hell the Last Jedi is (Is Jedi plural? Is it Luke? Is it Rey?).
Why I Only Travel Solo And You Should Too
"A stranger sees us the way we are, not as he wishes to think we are." —Shadow of the Wind Exposed inquisitive exploration—that is what it means to travel the world, and in my case, solo; where experiencing different cultures, customs, nuances, and beliefs are a day to day learning experience and way of life.
Ruffin Prentiss: The Voice Behind Watch Dog 2's Marcus
The acting triple threat: Theatre, Film, and... Video Games? In recent years the gaming world has exploded with exponential opportunities for actors to lend their talents in motion capture and voice acting. From new comers like Kit Harrington in Call of Duty and Natalie Dormer in Mass Effect, to seasoned veterans like Nolan North (Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, and more) and Mark Hamill (Star Wars and Batman: Arkham City), video game characters are crafted with a professional, engaged, and ever-memorable touch from the actors who play them.Ruffin Prentiss, who plays Marcus Holloway in Watch Dogs 2, is now on the exclusive list of video game protagonists that the public will play, re-play, and play some more for the times to come. To him, the most beautiful aspect about video game performances is that they mirror real life - just like any role and story we've seen in film. And with the constant evolution of video game technology, characters are more life-like than ever. Prentiss discusses the fascinating process of mocap, Marcus, gaming systems, and more in this exclusive interview:
What It's Like To Be A: Producer Of Play
Molly Sonsteng designs experiences that encourage adults to embrace the absurd. Armed with abundant experience in the education sphere (Sonsteng has a Masters in Educational Leadership, ran a preschool, and helped developed Carnegie Hall's curriculum) this brainy Minneapolis beauty conjured up a new endeavor, founding Brooklyn-based production house Madcap Factory. Unsurprisingly, that first word is defined as "amusingly eccentric."
Interview with Hillary Gadsby, Consummate Career Woman and Founder of StilettoGal
As gender equality becomes an increasingly pressing issue in workplace culture, individuals are calling out companies that require women to wear high heels to work. The thought behind this opposition is that to compel females to wear the quintessential "sexy shoe" objectifies female employees and undermines the value of the work they produce.
Interview with 'Ganjaman' Creator Jim Stewart
Ganjaman is a superhero of an atypical strain, but a superhero nonetheless; this part-cannabis plant, part-human dynamo has been fighting "for the rights of tokers" since UK based creator Jim Stewart first started drawing his character in 1995. Ganjaman stories have since appeared in numerous publications including Stewart's self-published editions of Ganjaman Presents, which feature recurring alliances, enemies, and stoner-centric predicaments.
