The happiest pit bull.

Alfred Camus on the Three Antidotes to the Absurdity of Life - I draw from the absurd three consequences, which are my revolt, my freedom, and my passion...

Yara Flor, the new Wonder Woman, is DC's first Latina superhero with her own comic - She's the daughter of a Brazilian river god and an Amazon, with a bit of Legend of Korra thrown in for fun.

While everyone was frothing at the mouth for Cyberpunk 2077 (sorry about the... everything with that one), I've been seriously hyped for The Medium. It's like a spiritual successor to Silent Hill, but with a fascinating mechanic where you wander the real world and the spirit realm at the same time. 

Jack Ma, a Chinese billionaire and the guy behind Alibaba (think Amazon, but in Asia) has disappeared. His most recent public appearance? That time he criticised China's regulatory system. Yeah....

Cyberpunk and Hyper Pop - Far East Mention Mannequins are the J-Pop concept group we kinda need right now.
