Game of Thrones is coming to a close with the final confrontation soon to happen. Even the most devoted fans, however, may find it difficult to keep all the various and sundry aspects of the story straight. Pop Chart’s not-yet-finished Game of Thrones Poster can help you keep the facts straight. The poster is a chart of the Seven Kingdoms, offering a collection of the many different parts that make up the show, from artifacts and armaments, to regalia and more.
You’ll find house sigils, Westerosian delicacies, and even Valyrian steel. Other objects and ornaments, as well as landmarks and even the fantastical beasts of the story, like dire wolves and dragons, made it onto the poster. The chart tracks all the countless claims to the Iron Throne, and will be updated as the final season airs to reflect who the true queen, or king, will be.
You can select from a number of finishes, including print only or mounted on a panel. The poster is also available with a black, white, cherry, or walnut frame. The frames are made in Pop Chart’s Brooklyn woodshop. Prices range from just USD$30 for the print only up to USD$120 for a framed version.
We’re Buzzing for the Fast Life Neons Exhibition
Remember the flicker of the neon sign outside your favourite childhood Chinese restaurant? The bold glimmer from the exterior lights of an old theatre? The glow of Tokyo back-alley? Well, Fast Life Neons have harnessed the vintage charm of neon lighting to combine art, light and function, creating unique decorative pieces for the modern era.
Fast Life Neons is the brainchild of graphic designer, Jacob Paramuk and product designer, Leonard Velich, combining their skills to create handcrafted products that serve as both functional lighting as well as ornamental art installations for either home and commercial settings.
With visually striking creations paying homage to the dying art, their aesthetic is nostalgic with a chic modern edge. When speaking of the Fast life brand ethos Velich tell us “Fast Life is mostly about art and design it also represents a lifestyle that most of us can relate to at some point of our lives. A life on the edge. The story behind every design reflects this philosophy of “fast life” where the influences come from various walks of life where living on the edge is the norm”.
The Fast Life Neon project that has spanned two and half years, is now launching to the Australian public at the “For Your Viewing Pleasure” exhibition at the M2 gallery in Surry Hills Sydney.
Fast Life Neons Exhibition Sydney
25 – 30th April
Opening night: Friday the 26th of April, 6 pm

500,000 LEGO Bricks Make This Life-Size McLaren Senna
It took nearly 5,000 hours for a team of LEGO builders to put together the half million bricks it took to create the 1:1 scale LEGO model of the McLaren Ultimate Series road car. The astonishing project weighs in at an incredible 1,700kg (its heavier than the actual car!). LEGO pulled out all stops to make this car as realistic as possible.
You can actually sit in it, and when you press the start button, you’ll hear a simulation of an actual McLaren starting up.
This isn’t the first time that LEGO has put together a 1:1 scale model with McLaren. Two years ago, they created a model of the 720S. This is, however, the first time that they have incorporated interior parts into the build.
And it was a massive undertaking. It took teams of 10 model-makers working around the clock to put together the 467,854 blocks. The build time took 2,275 hours—nearly 9 actual McLaren Sennas can be built in that amount of time. In total, with design and development, the project took 4,395 hours with 42 team members working on it.
If a life-size model is out of your league, you can still pick up the much smaller 219-piece McLaren Senna LEGO Speed Champions edition. You can also visit the life-size model at a variety of events throughout 2019.
UK Porn Fans Will Need ID To Watch Smut from July 15
In a controversial move that has been coming (heh) for some time, the UK Government has finally implemented a law forcing pornographic websites to require official identification before users can gain access to any of their content.
The “porn ban”, as its critics have dubbed it, has been in the making for some time, though has not been without its setbacks. Now, as of July 15, salacious sites including PornHub and YouPorn will direct visitors to a non-pornographic landing page, prompting them to enter valid proof-of-age via the AgeID system.
The AgeID system allows internet users to verify their age with valid proof, like a driver’s license, Mobile SMS, credit card or passport. AgeID works across a number of sites, and once a user is verified they can create an account with a password so as to bypass the rigmarole of entering the same details every single visit, for every site that uses the service.
The entire implementation has thus far been overseen by the BBFC (which is incidentally also a category on PornHub, we think), who is regulating the process, and said that there will be “an implementation period before the law comes into force”. July 15 is reflective of the three-month grace period given to all websites so they may organise themselves for the change in legislation.
AgeID spokesman James Clark told UK paper The Sun this week: “When a user first visits a site protected by AgeID, a landing page will appear with a prompt for the user to verify their age before they can access the site. Each website will create their own non-pornographic landing page for this purpose.
“It is a one-time verification. Once a user has age verified once, on any site protected by AgeID, they will then simply pass-through or login to any other site using AgeID without needing to reverify.”
The push comes from a movement from within the UK parliament to heavily restrict access to such material by people under 18 years of age. This, while a seemingly obvious pursuit, has proved tricky up until now for various reasons. A similar law was proposed in Australia under the Kevin Rudd Government, but was ultimately ditched after it was realised how much it would slow down Australia’s already cripplingly sluggish internet speeds.
