A crown for a new king who couldn’t be stopped

He was shoved out. He could have dived. He could have taken the foul and slowed the game down. Instead, he stayed on his feet, knowing more than anyone that nothing could stop him. Gareth Bale stepped up, and now there are no doubts. Madrid will remember this one legendary run for years to come. [Art by Kendall Henderson. Words by Eric]

So Nigeria has now supplanted South Africa as Africa’s largest economy. But I’ve not had light (electricity) for seven days, so it means nothing to me.

— A Nigerian social media user • Upon hearing that revised economic figures in the country—a revision 24 years in the making—put the country’s GDP (currently at $510 billion) far ahead of South Africa (currently at $353 billion) and other countries in the African continent. To give you an idea of how long it’s been: During the last GDP check in 1990, 300,000 landlines existed in the country. Now, there are 100 million cell phones. But that GDP level, above developed countries such as Chile, Sweden, and Belgium, belies a tough reality in the country—70 percent of the country’s population still lives in poverty. (via jolinxo)

Chris Foss and HR Giger’s concept art for Jodorowski’s unproduced Dune

"Fanboys and girls would have drooled over the visual team. A then-obscure H.R. Giger designed the creepier Harkonnen settings. Dan O’Bannon, known at the time for his work with John Carpenter on the sci-fi film Dark Star, was brought on as the special effects wiz. (Jodorowsky rejected Douglas Trumbull because he found him too full of himself.) British artist Chris Foss designed the space craft. And Jean Giraud, aka French comic book artist Moebius, brought Jodorowsky’s dreams to life in some 3,000 storyboard drawings that perfectly capture a character or scene with a few quick pencil marks on the page."

From the fantastic Boing Boing essay about it, available here. Read the whole thing.

maaaaaaaaan this would have been amazing - even reading about it and seeing the sketches are so inspiring.
