We haven’t had an 80′s music flashback in a while. Very overdue. Here is Depeche Mode and their song ‘People Are People’, written by Martin Gore, released March 12, 1984, which was their first U.S. hit single off their ‘Some Great Reward’ album.

Smokey the Bear made his first appearance in 1994 and the protector of the forest is still around today. The Ad Council and the USDA Forest Service have launched a new Smokey the Bear ad campaign, however the slogan has been tweaked to remind us that “only you can prevent wildfires” and they have added on something quite ridiculous to the tag line as well, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

The new campaign includes a series of PSA’s that are already airing on television, as well as an educational DVD designed for elementary children.

Who is the Pinkman?  I couldn’t tell you but surely want to know. I also would love if this video was about 3 minutes longer at least. It’s so intriguing. Who is this guy?  Why is he running? Where did he end up? Check out this 2D animation and fine art painted frame by frame video which was directed, designed and animated by Alberto Mielgo.

Some people have weak stomachs, some can’t stand the sight of blood, others aren’t too fond of horror. If you are amongst these group of people then stop reading now.

If you are a true horror fan be it film, books, comics or say photography, then you might want to learn more about Joshua Hoffine, horror photographer extraordinaire.

Hoffine as he states on his website is interested in the psychology of fear. Through horror photography he is able to represent these abstract fears in literal terms.

Feast you eyes on his amazing horror photography work…
