First introduced in the graphic novel Assassin's Creed, Volume 3: Accipiter, Jonathan Hawk is a member of the Assassin Order and a descendant of the Aleman Assassin Accipiter and Egyptian Assassin Numa Al'Khamsin. In 2012, he used the Animus to relive the memories of his ancestors. He was a member of the Assassin cell based in London, headed by Stella Crow. If Michael Fassbender is playing Jonathan Hawk, it's certainly interesting news. Previous reports claimed that the actor was playing two characters within a Spanish Inquisition setting. Michael Fassbender was said to be playing a Spanish Assassin named Aguilar de Agarorobo, as well as his modern day descendant, a convicted felon named Michael Lynch, who is being used by the Templars to further their cause in their war against the Assassins. The character is portrayed as a much older man in the books, so it's possible that Hawk is being portrayed by an as yet unannounced actor. The character was featured in four volumes of … [Read more...] about Assassin’s Creed Movie Poster: Is Jonathan Hawk Coming?

One hundred thousand people are dead. There is no effective federal plan to control a pandemic for which there remains no cure, nor help the nation recover from it. President Trump is engaged in a daily exercise in willful failure, ridding his government of inspectors general and obfuscating his own negligence. In a job that typically helps lead the nation in moments of grief, this president opts to tweet and golf, needing to be pressured to finally lower the flag to half-staff last week. It is no surprise that so many Americans followed the lead of Trump and fellow Republicans who rushed to reopen their state economies, going in droves to shores and pools and shops like spring breakers, many without masks, as if vaccinated by their frustration and impatience. … [Read more...] about Puerto Rico Was a Precursor for the Pandemic
At the end of the night, Mark Harrington takes the mike and tries to bring the focus back to the disease. Though his delivery is as rapid-fire as ever, he seems subdued. “We’re going to be hit with a tidal wave of AIDS,” he says. “Last week I went to a memorial service for my friend Brian — ” His voice cracks slightly, and the crowd gets still. “And I’m going to San Francisco, where another is dying.

Posible captures a more experimental sound than anything you’ve ever recorded. Though last year, we saw you dabble with an off-kilter electronic sound with Wired Sessions.With this album I had a specific sound in mind. As you described, I wanted it to be more experimental and get closer to using certain elements of electronic music, without forgetting that in the end what I make are songs. I want what José Alfredo Jiménez sings about, “¡Yo compongo mis canciones pa’ que el pueblo me las cante!” [“I compose my songs for the people to sing them back to me!”] I wanted there to be a clear song structure: verse, chorus, bridge. Although there is more experimentation, I wanted the songs to sound more interesting, for it to take me places where my voice had never been before. I approached the songs with the same format of how I play with my live band, and when we started recording the album, the sound took another turn.
