While the Maynard James Keenan-fronted Puscifer has always been a bit of a mysterious project for the TOOL frontman, even more mysterious is the surprise announcement of an otherwise unheard of musical act being selected as the opener for the 2015 Money Shot tour. Simply listed as “Luchafer“, our crew here at PureRockNews.com did some digging and here’s what we’ve found:

As a band or musical act, there is no trace of a “Luchafer” online or in trade rags. However, it’s mighty convenient that the Money Shot album art features two Luchador wrestling masks, AND the Money Shot tour ticket packages offer items like a Limited edition Puscifer wrestling mask autographed by Maynard, and VIP ringside (onstage) seating during Luchafer’s performance.
Add to all of that, the most recent full-production music video from Puscifer was for “Toma” featured the Flying Caliente Brothers, Clifton Collins Jr. as Hermano Uno, Jacob Vargas as Hermano Dos. Ian Cadiente as Hermanito Uno, Logan Cadiente as Hermanito Dos, Sean Hunt as LA PLACA, Chris Lisk as EL RUDO, Keith Gill as EL REFERI, Sarah Sandin as LA SANCHA.

It’s a breezy summer day and the rustling from the leaves outside sound like whispers from my small apartment. I’m sitting in front of my laptop, silently studying the 1.6 billion faces speaking simultaneously in front of me. It’s Monday, the day of the weekly conference call between all Muslims. We have been required to attend this Skype meeting from the the tender age of fetus, but I had never spoken in one of them before.
That changes today.
“Hey guys, what if…” I start to say.
Nobody hears me, but I refuse to be silent. How could I show my face again on Tumblr if I couldn’t even save my mayonnaise friends from death? How could I expect to earn their respect? Anon was right; why hadn’t I done this before? Thousands of lives had paid the price for my ignorance, but not anymore.
“What if you guys….. stopped killing people.“
Suddenly, silence.
1,643,398,023 pairs of eyes are on me. My heart is in my throat as the ISIS leader gives me a blank expression.
A single tear rolls down my cheek. "Please.” I say with a broken voice.
He is moved.
“Aight”.

My fingers are almost shaking as I carefully type in the ten digit phone number I have had memorized my entire life. The buttons on my home phone seem to glow a bit more dull, and even the ringing of the phone from the other end seems to be agonized, almost as if the world is telling me to hang up. But I refuse to give up; I can’t let my white lily friends down. Not again.
The phone rings once. Twice. Three times. Still no answer. Just as I am about to hang up, there is a click.
All I can hear is heavy breathing.
“Hello….” I say quietly, my voice shaking. “Is….. Is this Muslim?”
There was a long silence before I heard a voice answer “ya lol”.
“I was thinking………..” I begin cautiously. “Maybe murder is…………bad.”
“Habibi, I…..I don’t understand. What are you trying to say….?” The voice seems shaken.
“What if…….world peace is good and killing people is…………not good”
He lets out an audible gasp. “Are you saying ISIS is…….bad?”
“Maybe death is…….not good.” I continue. My heart is racing. I remind myself that I am saving thousands of lives, and inhale.
The silence from the other end of the line is almost deafening. He seemed to be thinking, as if he had never considered this idea before in his life. Truly I had opened his heart and his mind. This…. This could end terrorism.
“Muslim….Please.” I whisper.
I hear a tear roll down his cheek, with my Muslim Communication Hearing™ and hold my breath as he finally breathes out his next words.
“Kk.”
“I hear a tear”
How do you hear a tear?
Ah, you must not be Muslim,

A Life-Size Graphite Skeleton that Vibrates to Draw Itself into Nothingness

batleskeleton_07

All images by Luke Abiol

Unlike the human body which is composed of only 18% carbon, Agelio Batle‘s latest project is produced from 100% of the semimetal material. The work, titled Ash Dancer, is a life-size skeleton that acts like a very large pencil. When placed on a custom made high-frequency vibrating table, the bones of the skeleton rub marks onto the surface, slowly creating an outline of its own form. The more the work rubs against the table, the more of itself is left behind, slowly transforming the graphite from sculpture to abstract drawings which Batle refers to as Ash Dances.
The piece is a part the exhibition “murmer | tremble” at Jack Fischer Gallery in San Francisco which opens November 5 and runs through December 29, 2016. You can see more work from Studio Batle on his website, and a number of his graphite objects are available in the Colossal Shop. (via This Isn’t Happiness)

Stanford Prisoner Experiment

Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford prisoner experiment took place in the 1970s. The psychiatrist took 24 undergraduates and assigned them roles as either prisoners or guards, in a mock prison on campus. After just a few days, 1/3 of the guards exhibited sadistic tendencies, two prisoners had to be removed early due to emotional trauma, and the whole experiment only lasted six of the planned 14 days. It showed just how easily normal individuals can become abusive, in situations where it is encouraged.

Riding the White Line

A daredevil cyclist diced with death to conquer one of the world’s most dangerous biking trails. Michal Kollbek risked life and limb to ride the sheer rockface of the notorious White Line route in Sedona, Ariz. Heart-in-mouth drone footage shows the Polish-born pro-mountain biker navigating the thin white stripe of sandstone. Kollbek confessed he was initially unsure about performing the dangerous stunt.He slept on the decision for several days, and even walked through the route several times, before giving himself the green light.

  Here's the Trailer For the Movie That Made People Vomit at Film Festivals


As they say, all art should make you feel something. And grotesquely ill is definitely a feeling, right? To be completely honest, Raw, from acclaimed French director Julia Ducournau, actually looks pretty awesome—even with the cannibalism, skin peeling, excessive blood, and animal torture.
Last year, along with winning the FIPRESCI Prize at Cannes, Raw made a number of people in the audience faint at the Toronto film festival. The paramedics had to be called, and a spokesmen said afterward that "an ambulance had to be called to the scene as the film became too much for a couple patrons."
