Madame Tussauds Sydney, Australia: Captain Cook sails into Darling Harbour to track the Transit of Venus

Captain Cook sails into Darling Harbour to track the Transit of Venus…

Madame Tussauds Sydney enjoyed having Captain Cook get waxed at Sydney’s Madame Tussauds in Darling Harbour primeval this morning.

Captain Cook is one of many Australian icons to be announced as attractions to appear in the museum, which will eventually feature more than 70 wax figures.

He joins a massive contingent of Australian sportspeople, politicians and stars in the million tourist attraction.

Merlin Entertainment Australia director Edward Fuller isn’t revealing which other Australian stars have been selected for the local exhibition, but he has stated extensive research has been done to ensure the right mix of the famous and infamous.

"The key thing is that there will be a really strong line-up of local stars," Mr Fuller said.

A team of artists is working furiously to have the sculptures ready in time for the opening. Each wax model requires about 20 artists, from sculptors to painters, and can take up to six months to complete.

"The hair is all individually inserted into the head," Mr Fuller said, adding that capturing the "character and atmosphere" of the subject was the artists’ goal.

To assist in this, many of the celebrities immortalised by Madam Tussauds’ artists donate their own clothes to help create a sense of authenticity.

"That’s the freezing on the cake," Mr Fuller said.

"Not only can you get up close and individualized to your favourite star but they’re actually wearing the clothes they might have turned up to the Oscars in."

Promo…

The Transit of Venus – when the planet Venus transits crossways the grappling of the sun – is a very rare occurrence that Captain saint Cook tracked from island in 1769, leading him to eventually map the whole East coast of Australia.

Since the phenomena was first recognized, there have only been six transits of Venus with the most current one occurring in 2004 and the one following June 6th 2012 to occur on 11th December 2117.

WHAT: Relive the adventure with Captain saint Cook who is returning to Sydney Harbour in a Red
Rocket for another viewing of the Transit of Venus, and the last for 105 years.

Madame Tussauds Sydney, Australia: Captain Cook sails into Darling Harbour to track the Transit of Venus

Captain Cook sails into Darling Harbour to track the Transit of Venus…

Madame Tussauds Sydney enjoyed having Captain Cook get waxed at Sydney’s Madame Tussauds in Darling Harbour primeval this morning.

Captain Cook is one of many Australian icons to be announced as attractions to appear in the museum, which will eventually feature more than 70 wax figures.

He joins a massive contingent of Australian sportspeople, politicians and stars in the million tourist attraction.

Merlin Entertainment Australia director Edward Fuller isn’t revealing which other Australian stars have been selected for the local exhibition, but he has stated extensive research has been done to ensure the right mix of the famous and infamous.

"The key thing is that there will be a really strong line-up of local stars," Mr Fuller said.

A team of artists is working furiously to have the sculptures ready in time for the opening. Each wax model requires about 20 artists, from sculptors to painters, and can take up to six months to complete.

"The hair is all individually inserted into the head," Mr Fuller said, adding that capturing the "character and atmosphere" of the subject was the artists’ goal.

To assist in this, many of the celebrities immortalised by Madam Tussauds’ artists donate their own clothes to help create a sense of authenticity.

"That’s the freezing on the cake," Mr Fuller said.

"Not only can you get up close and individualized to your favourite star but they’re actually wearing the clothes they might have turned up to the Oscars in."

Promo…

The Transit of Venus – when the planet Venus transits crossways the grappling of the sun – is a very rare occurrence that Captain saint Cook tracked from island in 1769, leading him to eventually map the whole East coast of Australia.

Since the phenomena was first recognized, there have only been six transits of Venus with the most current one occurring in 2004 and the one following June 6th 2012 to occur on 11th December 2117.

WHAT: Relive the adventure with Captain saint Cook who is returning to Sydney Harbour in a Red
Rocket for another viewing of the Transit of Venus, and the last for 105 years.

Down

Down don't pretend to be anything that they're not.

Regardless of trends, favourite opinions, and changing tides, they're uncompromising, unparalleled, and undeniable. That's why they resonate so profoundly in the underground and beyond. After three full-length studio albums, they don't merely have a cult following—they are a cult.

Whether you catch fans debating the meaning of "Stone the Crow," sporting a "Power of the Riff Compels Me" t-shirt, or proudly brandishing a tattoo of their logo, the fervor for this outfit proves feverish. With a collective pedigree spanning Pantera, Corrosion of Conformity, Crowbar, and Eyehategod, there's untainted mystique and illusion when Philip H. Anselmo, Pepper Keenan, Kirk Windstein, Jimmy Bower, and Pat Bruders enter Nodferatu's Lair at Anselmo's New Orleans home to record. On the group's forthcoming DOWN IV Part 1 – The Purple EP [available via ILG], the mythos surrounding Down expands immensely. Staggering riffs, thunderous drums, and Anselmo's inimitable delivery crush and captivate over the course of the collection's six songs. It's dark. It's dangerous. It's decisive. It's Down at their best.

In 2011 after touring the world tirelessly behind Down III: Over the Under, they regrouped in the Lair to start working on new material. There weren't any deadlines. There wasn't any stress. In a sense, it wasn't all that different from the band's first wad sessions in 1991.

"I didn't feel any pressure," affirms Anselmo. "The less I think about it, the more natural it comes. Everybody in the band is well aware of what this is. A lot of artists try to reinvent themselves. They think they need to show different sides of who they are. If there's one thing I've always cherished, it's our core audience. There's no way I'd want to alienate them so we did what we do. You place the five of us in a room, it's going to sound like Down."

Make no mistake about it. The music is unequivocally the product of this iconic entity. Even though the style hasn't change, the lineup experienced one significant shift. In 2011, longtime bassist Rex Brown parted ways with the group, and Bruders joined. Brown's were huge shoes to fill, but the bass player instantly felt at home.

"He played his ass off on each song," states the singer. "He plays with his fingers, and there's a certain feel there. It brought a whole lot to the chemistry. He can adapt to anything and what he comes up with is amazing."

With Bruders in the fold, they channeled a tangible and kinetic energy. Songs like the first single "Witchtripper" thrive on Bower's impenetrable percussion, Keenan and Windstein's "Sabb'ed out" guitars, Bruders's propulsive bass, and anthemic hooks.

About that track, Anselmo smiles, "The title was an inside joke. It stems from a tour we did in Spain last year. We went to this beautiful town, but there was witch iconography everywhere. Apparently, the entire culture believes in witchcraft. I noticed most of the homes and structures had chiseled-off square stones on the roof or porch. Those stones supposedly ward off evil entities. We had some fun with it, denotive them 'Witchtrippers'. That study stuck"

Across the entire opus, the vocalist conjured some truly vivid and vibrant lyrics. Rather than only focusing on individualized experiences, he ventured into some more foreboding territory this time around.

"There had to be a touch of darkness on this record," he reveals. "Down gives me the platform to be poetic and paint imagery with lyrics. That's the approach I took. They complement the music and create an ominous feeling. Ultimately, when people consume the words, it's always their interpretation that matters. I could be image-conscious though when I wrote. It's not so gut level or street. The darker shit is some of my favorite."

The EP's final track "Misfortune Teller" ebbs and flows for over nine minutes with epic intensity and towering distortion. Culled from a poem of the same title that the singer penned post-Katrina, it's quintessential Down.

"We place too much emphasis on the hand of God, demons, bad luck, karma, Satan, or whatever you want to call it," continues Anselmo. "We try to blame anything besides the fact that shit fucking happens. You can't plan things, and your time here is precious. It's based on that idea. When you're dealt a bad hand of cards, it's about how you deal with life after you get those cards."

Then, there's "This Work Is Timeless" which pays homage to the classic nature of the group's collective inspirations over as Anselmo puts it, "My Witchfinder General riff." At the same time, "Open Coffins" raises a mirror to society via a pummeling groove. "It's about a demand of establishment in mankind," he goes on. "I'm not going to trust your ass until I'm in the coffin. My coffin is still open. In other words, my eyes are still wide open. It goes for all of us. In the right or wrong position, you don't know how you're going to react. That's the imperfection of mankind. God knows, I'm not fucking perfect, and I'd be the first to admit that. I talk from the heart though."

He and his cohorts have respectively been talking from the heart for the entire careers and from the day Down was born. Since then, their legendary 1995 debut Nola was certified platinum, while Down II: A Bustle In Your Hedgerow [2002] and Down III [2007] remain fan and critical successes. They've crossed the globe numerous times from storied performances on OZZfest and Download to jaunts with Metallica.

In the end, one thing remains paramount with The Purple EP and the future ahead. "The only thing that makes a difference is that collective of fans," he concludes. "I do believe that we have delivered a record that will be accepted and hopefully enjoyed by the Down horde—if you will. If you're looking for a Down record, it's very pure and real."

Get ready to join the cult.

How do you make a nonsquare website icon?

Question by AV2247: How do you make a nonsquare website icon?
With a site like www.rottentomatoes.com the tiny picture that appears on the side of the address bar or in the journalism is tomato-shaped, not a tomato with a square white background (same with the Gmail envelope). How do you design an picture like this? Further, is there any way to make icons that have empty space in them? I.e. icons that are not geometric shapes and would seem to be written on top of the journalism ?

Best answer:

Answer by Tiny Princess
I would guess just make the background transparent rather than solid.

edit: either that or just make the background the same gray color as the tabs so it appears as though it’s not there.
