Geeks Gone Wild (With Tattoo Machines)

Do you love your Mac unconditionally? How far would you go to express your feelings for your fave gadget or SciFi movie?

The folks featured in this article are willing to go all the way with geeky tattoos depicting tech logos, transistors and even a DB-9 port.

The 3D and binary tattoos are particularly cool. Check 'em out HERE.

Sarah Connor: The Great Tattoo Cover Up!

Who knew that Lena Headey, the actress that plays Sarah Connor in the Fox TV show The Sarah Connor Chronicles, has tattoos? And lots of them too! Apparently the folks that make the show put a lot of effort into covering them up. In a recent interview Headey says:

Question: I understand that you have quite a lot of body art.

Lena Headey: Yes.

Question: You don't really see it on Sarah Connor.

Lena Headey: Well no, because they hate that I have it. The powers that be say she would never have them...So they cover them up. I don't really mind them doing that because they're my tattoos, they're not Sarah Connor's. It's just part of being an actor.

I personally love them. I find them charming and I feel that they're part of me. A lot of people don't like them, especially in the industry, but everybody has them now. I tell you, if you could find the perfect chemistry for covering up a tattoo, you'd be a billionaire.

Question: What's your favorite tattoo?

Lena Headey: I like them all really. I've just had my back piece finished and I love that. It's a big piece on my back with peonies and swallows. It's got a lot of movement in it, and it's just something I'd always wanted to do. It goes from my lower back, it sort of curls around my womanly shapes, and then it just comes up around my shoulder.

As you can see from the image above -- there's no sign of Lena's ink work when in-character.

Fischerspooner Release New Video For "We Are Electric"

Love the new video for the single "We Are Electric" taken from Fischerspooner's latest full-length Entertainment. A friend described it as "David Bowie and David Lynch remaking Blade Runner as a musical," and I think that's pretty accurate.

Exene Cervenka Diagnosed With Multiple Sclerosis

So sad, Exene Cervenka of the seminal SoCal punk band X, has announced that she has MS. A statement on her website says:

After some months of not feeling 100% healthy, I recently had some medical tests run
and the prognosis is that I am suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.
Apparently, it has been affecting me for quite some time.

Although this is obviously unfortunate news, I am choosing to see the positive in it. I, and X as a band, have supported the Sweet Relief charity since the mid-1990's;
the irony of this is not lost on any of us. Sweet Relief was started as an aide to uninsured artists by musician Victoria Williams when she herself was diagnosed with MS in 1992.

While this diagnosis will most certainly mean some changes for me, personally, it will not affect my commitments to the current X U.S. tour, nor will it affect my solo album that is slated for release this fall on Bloodshot Records.

My focus will certainly be on maintaining my health--many people remain strong and continue to live their lives as productively as they had before an MS diagnosis and I plan to be one of those people.
