“The Engineer from Prometheus spins at the Blu-Ray launch event at The Beats Store in New York.” (Via /Film.)
Ridiculous…that he has NO TURNTABLES!!
How sad it is, that DJs now don’t need turntables to do all of the… DJing anymore. They should just stop calling it DJing.
I believe the new term the kids are using is ZJ (Zune Jockey).
Or we could call them Hip Jockeys or Bass Jockeys just to make the abbreviations more fun.
Unfortunately I don’t know how to post pics, so instead you get “something something something Beerfest joke about a male prostitute”.
hmm…doesn’t hit home the same way.
Why didn’t anyone tell me Prometheus was an adaptation of the Cho Aniki video game series?!
I would include a screenshot to illustrate my point, but…well…I AM at work. If anybody else wants to do the dirty work, though, feel free.
Whaaaat? Why do you get UPvotes for this?!
Good joke timing, no animation?
The placement of the DVD, uh Blu-Ray, in the pic seems to be covering a form of genitalia.
In related news, Jon Hamm just purchased the Prometheus for future use.
The Prometheus DVD. DVD! I got excited about the mental picture and hit submit too fast!
It’s actually a Blu-Ray Disc, so BD or BRD works fine.
Is this canon?
And much like Prometheus, this party was really cool as long as you don’t stop to think about it for a second.
Those aren’t his real arms, right??
DJing these days involves two abilities: looking super muscular and pressing play.
Why does he need headphones to play the flute?
Can’t the music just come out of his mind or some shit like that?
Are you sure that’s who that was?
“hey throw me the ball!!”
The headphones represent the ancient Greek god Beatsbydreisus, who in modern contemporary existential narrative theory, is (and this is a rough translation) the God Of Fools.
Notice the symmetry of the figures in the background. Nearly every one is facing away from us, the audience, with the subtle exception of the man in the suit, who appears to be staring right at us, who Scott and Lindelof obviously mean to represent almost a Big Brother figure, watching us while we futilely attempt to work out the truth.
However, there is one figure that stands out in this cinematic representation of a very real shell game: the man closest to the Engineer, the man with access to the most potential insight into mankind’s origin. What is he doing? Is he purposely ignoring the representative of the Creator Deities? No, he is engaged with humankind, oblivious to the mad beatz that our creators will someday spin.
This is a real gem and I hope it gets all the upvotes.
