My childhood bedroom was covered In posters. Among them I had Bo Jackson’s “The Ball Player,” a Ferrari Testarossa, and one of those motivational posters that Included a nondescript football player with a Vince Lombardi quote. Now, as an older teenager, my walls are filled with art, photography, and ephemera.

I am an organ procurement and transplant coordinator; I work with families and care for patients in the hopes of making something good come out of tragic loss. Many of my colleagues have tattoos, including myself (with growing sleeves). And though Indiana Organ Procurement Organization supports my choice to have tattoos, I am occasionally asked to cover up in compliance with a hospital’s policy, but the IOPO has told them it’s up to me.

HENN ESSY
The iconic cognac asked graffiti artist Futura 2000 to tag one on their label. Along with brightly colored patterns, the master left his mark with his calling card of helix circles that remind us of swirling a snifter.
Nick Fierro
What runs through your mind as you attempt to choose a booze? Too often have I found myself traipsing up and down the aisles of my local liquor store glaring into the glass of each bottle like the foggy window of my favorite late night haunt. It may be time to make a decision, but I have almost no information to go on.

GRAPHIC NOVEL
From the twisted mind of former Life of Agony bassist Alan Robert comes the comic book series killogy: murder and mayhem by the hands of some familiar faces. The three main characters are the fictional we hope) dark sides of actor Frank Vincent [Goodfellos, The Sopranos), Ramones drummer Marky Ramone, and Dexter actress Brea Grant. We've enjoyed his first two comics, Wire Hangers and Growl to Me, but this latest offering is fan fiction that murderizes Fifty Shades of Grey. Robert McCormick

TAKEN 2
Taken was a surprise hit that kicked ass, so it's no wonder we're getting a sequel. This time, while vacationing with his family in Istanbul, ex-CIA operative Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) finds himself in a familiar predicament when his wife (Famke Janssen) is taken and held hostage by the father of one of the Albanian kidnappers he killed in the first film. This pissed-off daddy, of course, wants revenge, so it's up to Mills and his daughter, Kim (Maggie Grace), to rescue Mom. This one looks intense, and it's nice to see Kim aiding Dad as a sidekick this time around. Gil Maclas

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4
The Paranormal Activity franchise is looking to dominate the Halloween season box office once again with this fourth installment of the highly popular found-footage horror series. Not much is known about the plot, but we do know that the events in the first two films sort of took place concurrently, and that the third was an '80sera prequel, so from the looks of the spine-tingly trailer, maybe all lingering questions will be answered and we'll finally find out what happened to Katie and baby Hunter? Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (Paranormal Activity 3) return to direct. -G.M.

PLATFORMS: PLAYSTATION 3, XBOX 360 Olympic soccer is a bore compared to the FIFA World Cup. In past FIFA games, you could only take your pro into one or the other. In FIFA 13, you can finally represent both club and country in your virtual career, making a fortune professionally and earning the adoration of your fellow countrymen in international play. Perform well enough on your club team and you'll get called up to the international squad for friendlies, qualifying matches, and tournaments. FIFA 13 also takes a few moves from the skill set of cover athlete Lionel Messi, introducing new 360-degree dribbling controls and new attacking Al that can read two plays ahead to put itself in position to make a critical run toward the net. If you're having trouble finishing, sharpen your abilities with the new skill games. Play If You Like: The World Cup, Green Street Hooligans, The Damned United -M.B.

XCOM: ENEMY UNKNOWN
PLATFORMS: PLAYSTATION 3, XBOX 360, Pc The shitty thing about an alien invasion is that you can't save everyone. As the commander of the topsecret XCOM Project, it's your job to make the tough calls: Do you preserve funding for a vital research project by helping the Chinese face a threat, or leave them exposed to investigate a UFO crash in the Nevada desert that may yield a new harvest of alien technology? These permanent choices define the gameplay experience in this reboot of the popular sci-fi series. When the aliens land, you must face the threat head-on in intense real-time strategy encounters. Succeed on the battlefield and your troops will grow with experience. Make a vital mistake and you'll lose a good man, forcing you to spend valuable resources on training new soldiers. No one said making ET phone home was going to be easy. Play If You Like: The Arrival, X-Flles, Civilization V -M.B.

In order to earn money in the car business, you need to make vanilla, mainstream vehicles. (The last time one of the Big Three tried to get clever in mass production, the regrettable PT Cruiser came off the assembly line.) But car designers get to flex their creative muscles with concept cars.

While sports like baseball and football have rigid structures that have barely changed over the years, skateboarding is constantly evolving into something different.

They may not be Batman and Robin, but Danielle Distefano and Matt Greenhalgh are still crusaders. They don't fight crime in the dark recesses of a city like Gotham, but they use their talents to create artistic communities. Upstarts Art Shows, showcasing up-and-coming tattooers' artwork, was one such endeavor created by Greenhalgh in New York in 2003.

You do some pretty insane pencil drawings. What’s the difference between those and your tattoos? Working on skin is quite different from working on paper. There are certain limitations with living tissue. Scale, for one. [On skin] I could not create at the same miniature scale and have any reasonable expectations of longevity.

Tattooing out of one of north Jersey's most venerable shops, Russell Kelley creates bold but intricate designs with a sure hand and a contrast from light to dark ink. "Black ink makes the colors jump out, and the black outline should be thick enough to also show that contrast," he says.

"Manhattan is the same as Richmond-people in both cities take a lot of pride in what they do," he says. But he's come a long way. "As part of my apprenticeship I had to tattoo myself before I was allowed to work on anyone else.
