Fan Pics Found on Instagram & Beyond: Liberty Landmarks, an Edible Marston, Max Payne Chucks and More
In our latest roundup of excellent fan-posted pics found around the web, we've come upon everything from a GTAV cover art remix done up Etch-a-Sketch style on a doodle board, to a Vice City fan who's really trying to be about that Vercetti-on-a-Faggio life, to a local BX resident who caught a case of Bohan deja vu...
If you see (or have posted) any awesome Rockstar-related shots, make sure to send them to us via Mouthoff to have a look and follow us at instagram.com/rockstargames to always get our latest official pics.
"Aspiring Bronx historian" @6sh6un6 noticed that a furniture store in #GTAIV bore a striking resemblance to one around the way in his Bronx neighborhood. Of course there are many reference points to NYC buildings and landmarks in GTAIV's Liberty City, including some signature spots in the Boogie Down that helped inspire Bohan's streets.
Parisian fan @alex_salzard sketched his own take on the GTAV box art here on a doodle board, calling it "Mélange de génération." C'est chouette.
Tommy's lament. Thanks @mattmelody for letting us peer into the deepest insecurities of Mr. Tommy Vercetti. He held fast to that "gangsters don't swim" credo until CJ dispelled it a couple years later...
|One of the most popular recurring San Andreas quote memes we've seen. @sweetjohnsonofficial retorts on Instagram, "Sorry Smoke, it's not my fault yo fat ass can't drive a Sanchez motorbike." Truth.|
Sweden's @watchmegoogle whose tricep art is as much a general life lesson as it is a direct nod to #GTA2.
Whilst Bavarian fan @schinishellyproject brought the pain to his ankle with this permanent recreation of a rare Rockstar spray paint style logo design.
There's a Max Payne: The Dog, apparently. Cheers to @nicoryls for naming her canine after the top dog of brooding videogame anti-heroes.
Some people just pause and imagine what their life would be like living in Vice City. This guy @damolazz took it one step further. "#YOLO" indeed eh.
"#ViceCity is a family favorite." Big shout out to @anthonybourdain and @ottaviabourdain who never cease to surprise and amuse us with their random and awesome #GTA and #ViceCity references on Twitter and Instagram. Here, Ottavia shows off some prized Vice City gear. Added bonus for GTA trivia heads: check the comments on the Instagram pic to see which GTA voiceactor jumped in for a cameo appearance.
John Marston's had to suffer through many unexpected indignities in his lifetime - from picking flowers for strangers to seeing his whole family zombified. Now, Florida custom bake shop @butterwinks has immortalized him on a (impressively handmade) cookie. The Walton's Gang will never let him live this one down.
NYC-based model and videogame enthusiast @AshleDanger joined us last summer at one of our #MaxPayne3 Multiplayer Sessions hosted by @Hot97. Looks like she's still getting plenty of good medicinal-purposes use out of that Max Payne 3 pill box.
|Australia's @shadowfox88 took 'bagged and boarded' to another level with this amazing pair of custom Chucks that incorporate a collage of artwork cut out of the #MaxPayne3 Marvel comic book. "Only one pair of these exists in the world and they are mine!!! #maxpayne #awesome #willneverwear."|
To the 'shock therapy' delights of the Masters of Madness Tour which brings the spectacle of seeing Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson on stage performing together...
To perennial summer season festival favorites like Reading and Leeds in the UK (this year featuring Rockstar alums like Nine Inch Nails, Major Lazer, Foals, Sick of It All, and David Rodigan), Summer Sonic in Japan (featuring The Stone Roses, Living Colour, John Legend, M.I.A., and Busy P), and of course Lollapalooza (this year with The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Major Lazer and more).
Outside of the big grand stage festivals, there's also plenty of legends touring their own headlining shows all summer long like Heart's Wilson sisters and KISS taking their circus show around the globe - and plenty others.
Hit the jump below for a handy list of many of the currently active touring artists, and as always feel free to post any others or your personal concertgoing experiences this summer in the comments section...
We've had our own affection for the historic Undercroft at the Southbank Centre in London going back long before we featured it as one of the skateable spots in our 1999 PS1 title, Thrasher: Skate and Destroy.
Southbank has attracted skaters from all over England since the 1970s, becoming a focal point for the community and a powerful barometer for local talent. While their Californian counterparts were blessed with sunny skies and an abundance of empty swimming pools, Southbank's smooth concrete banks, stair sets and ledges proved to be just as full of potential for first wave freestylers and cruisers as they still are for modern street skating. The combination of covered all-weather skating and clear open space alongside the River Thames made the place ideal not only to skate, but also to just be a part of the scene.
There's always been something perfect about this small pocket of clattering boards and graffiti tucked defiantly beneath some of the city's key arts landmarks, such as Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Hayward Gallery. The Undercroft brings skating right into the cultural heart of the city, now as much of a tourist draw as the postcard destinations above it and a reminder of just how far board (and BMX) culture has come.
Sadly, its future is uncertain. The Southbank Centre has announced plans to take over the space as part of its expansion, swapping the banks for a series of retail units. You can read about those plans in full at www.southbankundercroft.com and if you like, sign the petition to help sustain a major piece of British skating history.
A quite inspirational story we felt compelled to share, "The Tempt One Story" is a documentary of legendary Los Angeles-based graffiti artist Tempt, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2003 and left completely paralyzed, save the ability to blink. After purchasing one of Tempt's pieces at a gallery show and learning of his condition, philanthropist Mick Ebeling is driven to find a way to help Tempt overcome seemingly impossible odds to continue to do what he does best - create. The emotional journey that follows chronicles how Ebeling and a team of designers and artists try to do the impossible - culminating in the creation of the EyeWriter, a groundbreaking device that allows those suffering from neuromuscular conditions to be able to draw and write using only their eyes. Check out the trailer for the documentary below, which is available to order from the official website or to stream from Reelhouse, with 30% of each sale going to the Not Impossible Foundation.
