Tuesday Girls #14: Game Gurrrlz

I thought it would be a great idea to combine two very awesome things: gorgeous women, and videogames. Game characters are quite awesome already, as they can allow us to fill the shoes of whatever role we want -- and it's even better when that character is hot! Check out the high definition wallpapers below for some gorgeous game girls.

...and, of course, the hottest: Lara Croft, Tomb Raider.

Monday Fun-Day #14: Movies

Movies seem to play a huge role in modern society, shaping the way many minds see the world and the people in it -- but how, or even to what extent exactly, is debated. Movies can be art forms, whether they are purely for entertainment or thought-provoking.

The intellectual elite down to the working class revere movies, making them a frequent occasion. So if we are so into movies, why not have a movie wallpaper to go with it? Check out the high definition movie wallpapers below to get something you like. Enjoy!

Sunday Landscapes #8: Canyons

It's time to pay tribute to the awesome, beautiful structures that are canyons with some of these high definition wallpapers. Canyons are usually formed when monolithic glaciers unlike any we have seen in ages carved paths through the ground when they scraped across it. Rivers can also erode the landscape, making it so that a small river bed lies at the bottom of many canyons.

Thursday Games #14: Halo 4

Halo 4 is looking to be huge, but not quite so big as its predecessors. It is surrounded in ominous promises and the vaguest of description by 343 Industries, the development team that Microsoft chose to replace the original creators of Halo, Bungie, after their choice to end their involvement in Halo (and Master Chief) at Reach.

The Xbox 360 game Halo 4, which is planned to be the eighth game released in the entire Halo franchise, will start a new trilogy by the name of "The Reclaimer Trilogy," and despite Bungie's wishes, will bring back the forgotten Master Chief and his trusted AI, Cortana.

The game is slated to be released in time for the holidays this year, but that should (of course) always be taken with a grain of salt. Though they have released a strong set of art and ideas, the information to actual gameplay and plot has been kept minimal. Whether this is because they haven't panned it all out yet, or because they want to keep it a secret, is still up for guessing.

In the meanwhile, though, you can get your Halo on with these high definition wallpapers featuring the main protagonist of the sci-fi series, Master Chief; the smart-mouthed AI partner, Cortana; and more!

Wednesday Music #13: Axl Rose

Younger Axl Rose
Axl Rose is the lead man of Guns N' Roses, a popular band from the 1980s. Guns N' Roses released a myriad of hit singles, most of which are on their incredibly successful album "Appetite for Destruction." After their rise to fame and subsequent drug-induced feuds between band-members Slash and Rose, the band was broken up. Rights to name stayed with Rose, and today the Guns N' Roses band features a line-up of new members (save for Axl Rose, of course).

Older Axl Rose
Recently, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame attempted to give Axl Rose and the Guns N' Roses an honorary induction, which is something most rock musicians can only dream of. Rose sent a letter through his spokesperson, claiming that he did not feel respect or welcomed at the ceremonies and would not attend or accept an induction.

It is still to be seen if the rest of the group will attend the awards ceremonies to have themselves inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, or if Axl Rose's decision to stay out of it all will have an effect on the rest of their inductions.

Crazy, huh? Well, you can't forget the good ol' days, I suppose, so have some high definition wallpapers of Guns N' Roses (and, of course, Axl Rose). Enjoy!

Tuesday Girls #13: Sexy Brunettes

Everybody has a favorite hair color, or hair colors, in the opposite sex, especially when it comes to women. Everyone has seen the "blonde bombshell" with her thin physique, legs for miles, and perfect facial structure. Of course, she has very blonde hair. We have even all seen the typical mysterious women of sable hair color, and they have left their sultry marks in our minds.

We daydream of the gorgeous blondes and dark-haired women whether we are just young boys or full-grown college students (or, as full grown as one might consider a college student, haha).

But what about brunettes? It seems that they still get attention, but not as much as they should, in my opinion. Brunettes have their alluring qualities just as well as their blonde- and black-haired counterparts, so why not show them a little love with one of these high definition wallpapers?
