3 4 Just as the middle class is disappearing, so is the notion of celebrity. Back in the day when most people in America were busy manufacturing things, it fell to just a few to amuse the rest—and those people were the ones who appeared in newspapers and magazines and on TV. But now that some of our greatest products are ideas, culture, and entertainment, a much larger swath of people are seeking your attention through those outlets as well as social media channels. For this, INKED’s culture issue, we cut through the abyss that is the current media and highlight the people from the tattoo community who rightfully deserve to be heard. The first is Ben Shields (1), Ryan Gosling’s tattooer, who also designed the carny ink for Gosling’s Luke in The Place Beyond the Pines. Along with his contribution to tattoo art and cinema, Shields created the B Soap Company, which manufactures tattoo aftercare soap. Julia Arielle Cox (2) had some good, clean fun with Less Than Jake—who, as an act, turned 21 and invited the photographer to the party. Our cover subject, rock goddess and Zippo muse, Jayme Foxx was shot by the unequaled Marley Kate (3, behind Foxx). From the TV world, we have The Biggest Loser’s Bob Harper showing off his physique and his sweet new ink to shooter Joseph Llanes (4). Nick Fierro (5) introduces you to Robert “Videobob” Moseley, a guy who builds Back to the Future DeLoreans—and who needs his own TV show, immediately. Charlie Connell (6) picks the brain of Criminal Minds’ Shemar Moore who was shot by Magdalena Wosinska (7). And Natasha Van Duser (8) talks with Rudcef, a South Korean artist creating Western pop art in the social vacuum that is South Korea. From pop art to democracy to traditional tattoo style, America’s best ideas are also our most important exports these days.

Until recently, the only interactivity you could have with TV was the ability to see your tweet on American Idol or vote for SportsCenter’s Top Plays. Now cable channel Syfy and video game producer Trion Worlds haven’t just taken it to the next step, they’ve skipped a few paces. Defiance is a
new TV show and MMORPG video game that revolves around the same plot (a former soldier tries to protect refugees of a war between Earthlings and a group of alien species). Things that happen on the show can influence the online game, and vice versa. If a monumental player-driven event takes place
in the game, it can affect the plot of the show in the next season. Individual players may even be called out on the TV show, according to producers. So here’s your chance to be on TV if you aren’t blessed with perfect pitch or a killer jump shot—just don’t go all Leeroy Jenkins on us. —Robert McCormick
Dr. Spencer Black is the grave robber, vivisector, and madman at the center of author and artist E.B. Hudspeth’s debut novel, The Resurrectionist: The Lost Work of Dr. Spencer Black. Between the covers, there are actually two works—a fictional biography of Dr. Black, and The Codex Extinct Animalia, a visually arresting collection of skeletons from mythological beasts he believes to be our ancestors. Dr. Black is a bit of Charles Darwin and bit of P.T. Barnum. —Nick Fierro
IRON MAN 3 And phase two of Marvel’s master plan begins with Iron Man 3. Set after the events of The Avengers, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is pitted against his archnemesis from the comic books, the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). Yes, finally! The Mandarin is to Iron Man what the Joker is to Batman—and things look pretty grim for our hero this time. After directing the first two films, Jon Favreau steps aside as executive producer and writerdirector Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Lethal Weapon) takes the helm. Guy Pearce, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Don Cheadle also star. —Gil Macias
STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS J.J. Abrams (Star Trek, Super 8) is once again behind the lens for this sequel to the really damn good Star Trek reboot—and it’s been a long four-year wait for Trekkies. This time, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth after an extreme terrorist attack that came from within their very own organization. Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) leads his crew on an intergalactic manhunt to capture whomever is responsible. Is it Khan? We don’t know. Rumors on who the damn villain is have been debunked and shrouded in mystery since production began, but we’ll know the truth soon enough. —G.M.
THE HANGOVER PART III Not much is known about this third outing with our beloved wolf pack, but we do know that The Hangover Part III is allegedly the last film in director Todd Phillips’s recordbreaking R-rated comedy franchise (unless a truckload of dough persuades them to do a fourth). This time, there’s no wedding or bachelor party involved, but we do hear there’s a character death that sets things in motion. At least it sounds like it won’t be a wash, rinse, and repeat like the second film was. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, John Goodman, and Jamie Chung all star. —G.M.
FAST & FURIOUS 6 Who says slasher-horror flicks and The Land Before Time are the only franchises that can keep cranking out sequels? It seems the highoctane Fast & Furious series is here to stay as far as the box office is concerned. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Dwayne Johnson lead the cast of what should be titled Fast & Furious All-Stars. The roster returning behind the wheel is ginormous and features other fan faves like Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, and Elsa Pataky. Luke Evans (Immortals) and Gina Carano (Haywire) are the newbies. Coming soon: Fast & Furious 7. —G.M.

MLB 13: The Show Platform: PlayStation 3 A vast gulf exists between the haves and have-nots in MLB. While cash-rich teams like the Yankees and Red Sox go on shopping sprees each off-season, smaller market teams like the Pirates and Twins basically serve as glorified farm teams. In MLB 13: The Show, passionless penny pinchers like Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria won’t derail your quest for the pennant. As long as you keep stringing together wins, the virtual owners will free up more funds to spend on the open market. A revamped scouting system lets you find diamonds in the rough to kick-start your dramatic turnaround, and fans looking for a more casual experience can turn on beginner mode for a flashback to the home-run-heavy steroid era.

Big Black Delta “Side of the Road” This throbbing, electronica-tinged dance track sounds simultaneously nostalgic and futuristic.

Steve Earle “Invisible” Steve Earle crafts another folk classic with this striking piece of social commentary. |> Alkaline Trio “I Wanna Be a Warhol” Further proof that Alkaline Trio have perfected the art of the three-minute-long melodic punk song.

Fuse Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 When a villainous corporation infiltrates a secret government research facility to steal a powerful alien technology, the feds don’t send in the National Guard. Instead, it’s up to you and three friends to stop their quest for global domination. Developer Insomniac Games cut its teeth making fun-to-use guns in the Ratchet & Clank series, and Fuse taps that expertise to give you a powerful arsenal of experimental weaponry. To survive the four-player cooperative campaign, players must coordinate attacks and leverage the unique skills of each character class. If you prefer to roll solo, you can switch between the four characters at any time to gain the same ass-kicking advantages. Play If You Like: Ratchet & Clank, Borderlands, District 9 —M.B.
Grid 2 platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC Most racing games are content to hang their hats on the shine of the hood and the thrill of the ride. Grid 2 matches their speed and style, and kicks the fantasy into another gear by adding a narrative framework to the mix. As the star driver, you get to travel around the world defeating other skilled drivers and convincing them to join your entrepreneurial endeavor. Recruiting better talent yields better sponsorships, larger fan bases, and more competitive races. On the asphalt, the new TrueFeel handling system finds the sweet spot between hyper-technical realism and joy-riding arcade titles—but with no artificial assists, it’s totally up to you to take the checkered flag. Play If You Like: Need for Speed, Top Gear, Forza Motorsport —M.B.

It looks crappy. Having fun is such an integral part of the band’s identity that it would be impossible for them to lose the spirit.” DeMakes says with a laugh.
