[Every week (until I get bored), Art Juice takes a recent videogame story and provides an unremittingly artistic slant, telling us a little something about ourselves in the process ... whether we want to know the truth or not!]

Since Biblical times, mankind has feared the snake. It's a symbol of danger, thematically associated with mistrust and cold, merciless death. This is why my artistic eye envisages videogame auteur David Cage embracing the reptilian creature so thoroughly. 

David Cage is a man who dares, a man who takes the danger of life and makes it his steed. The Serpent of Dawn represents mankind's fear of the tomorrow, and David Cage so effortlessly rides that terror we all fear, while reminding us that he made Heavy Rain, the popular hit available only on PlayStation 3. 

I think this speaks out to all of us who are afraid, and states that perhaps we should all be like Cage, grabbing that terrible snake with our hands and wrestling it until we are satisfied. I find this artwork inspiring and it makes me want to greet each day with courage and dignity.

The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.more

Let's get away for the weekend, just you and me. I know this little place on the coast. Nice restaurant, view of the water from the cliff side. We could probably sleep in the car in the parking lot and hang out on the beach a...more

Max and I thought it would be a good idea to keep everyone posted on our goings-on. This was spurned by many, many people wondering why we've been filming in Max's actual kitchen. We answer this question, and some y'all have...more
