I've Never Really Understood The Appeal of Professional Wrestling...

Something about watching sweaty guys roll around with each other in their underwear just never really clicked with me. 
However, this kind of wrestling is something I could truly get behind... and under ;-)

Even While Taking a Dump, When You Stare Into The Abyss...

Bathroom built over an abandoned elevator shaft with hopefully very thick and secure glass floor.
I don't know... I think that would scare the shit out of me. (didya see what I did there?)

Great New Video From The Shins!

I love the Shins - I played the Hell out of "Wincing The Night Away", and still haven't gotten sick of it! From Neatorama;

This amazing new animated music video for The Shins song The Rifle’s Spiral is full of stop motion goodness and a style inspired in part by the art of Edward Gorey.
It was created by Jamie Caliri, who is perhaps best known for the animated end title sequence he created for Lemony Snicket’s film A Series Of Unfortunate Events.
It’s a feast for the senses, with lots to look at and a song that really rocks!

This is Kinda Scary...

Homage to The late, Great, VHS Tape....

... and now we will observe a moment of silence for our old friend.

Do You Think "The Avengers" Will be Better Than it's Little Seen 70's Counterpart?

I don't know - this looks pretty solid ;-)

Because You Demanded it - More Great Behind-The-Scenes Star Wars Pics!!!

See my previous post here! See the rest of this album here!

"A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever" - J. Keats

Pizza Hut Middle East has topped Pizza Hut UK's release of hot dog-stuffed crust with their own "royal" Crown Crust Pizza, which is a kind of hub-and-spoke bread-thing with cheeseburgers or chicken-cheeseburgers studded around a central, pizza-like wheel. 
I wonder if you could get half and half?

2 New Posters For "The Amazing Spider-Man"

While both of these posters look great, the first one is phenomenal!

3 New Images For "The Dark Knight Rises"

Image no. 1 - completely badass!
Images 2 & 3 - Meh.

Everyone is talking about how awesome "the bat" is, but I think it looks kinda boring. One of the coolest aspects of a real bat are the scalloped wings, and when you are creating a plane for Batman, you really miss out on a golden design opportunity by not adding scalloped wings. You say; "well, the tumbler doesn't have any sort of bat-wing design".
And I say; "I've always thought that the tumbler was ugly too."
Luckily, Nolan is really good at making story & character driven films, or I just wouldn't be able to get past these designs.

This is Pretty Neat...

Sean Young's home movies from the making of "Dune" in 1983.


Take that, hippies!

Batman Has Come To Chew Bubblegum and Kick Ass...

And he's all out of bubblegum!

Great Salvador Dali-Inspred Star Wars Tattoo!

That is all.

Aww, Hell's NO!!

I'm such a wuss - just watching this made me queasy.

So, I Watched "Cabin In The Woods" Yesterday...

HOLY CRAP!! This movie has more twists and turns than the Autobahn! The synopsis on Yahoo couldn't be more right; "Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again."

I went into this knowing absolutely nothing about the film, other that half paying attention to the trailer once or twice. It just seemed so straight-up slasher formula, that I didn't even notice it, really. But it was a rainy Sunday afternoon, my son wanted to see it, it looked better than "The 3 Stooges", and I really had nothing better to do.

It starts out very true to the tired formula, but it's intertwined with these very perplexing scenes from what looks like average workers in some type of government-looking facility. As the film continues, I made many assumptions as to what was happening - all of them quickly proven false. Even toward the very end, I looked at my son and said; "I still have no idea what the Hell is going on!"

The ending is something I would have never seen coming in a million years! This is easily the most original fright flick I have seen in a VERY long time, and I could not recommend it enough! In fact, I'm going to take my wife to see it asap!

Mint condition 60's era. $40 for two of them at a yard sale.

Redneck Daredevils!


Only the hardcore will get it, but I love it! WIP t-shirt design by Last Exit to Nowhere, inspired by the 1966 Batman movie. Give some feedback if you'd like to see it made.

It don't get more hipster than this!

Well, It's About TIME!

Look who finally made the cover of  "Muscle & Fitness"!

Rotoscoped Trailer For Evil Dead 2!

What is Rotoscoping? I'm glad you asked;  Rotoscoping is a tedious process that involves animating over a live action film frame by frame, which means it took waaaaaay too long to rotoscope this trailer for the horror classic The Evil Dead.

And, while the end result is pretty cool looking and fun to watch, it’s highly unlikely that PFR Studios will be rotoscoping any more of the film, because this bit is almost three years old!

And You Thought Finding Out That Darth Vader is Your Dad Was a Bummer...

What do you buy a psychopathic killer for Father's Day, anyway?

Two Wonderfully Nerdy Coffee Tables

 First, the Pac-Man table. Kiran says: "I make a range of stuff from tables to lamps and beyond. I recently started my first retro range, and have just completed an 80s gaming table, based on an old electronic game that we all know and love! I have the table listed on Folksy with a few of my other items too. It is £225."

For the gaming enthusiast with much deeper pockets, I present to you the NES Controller table. Etsy seller TheBohemianWorkbench combines fine joinery with fine nerdery and comes up with a beautiful, handmade wooden coffee table that resembles a giant NES controller, and which functions as a NES controller as well. It's available for $3,500 from his Venice, CA studio (pickup preferred).
Nintendo NES controller coffee table. Made from maple, mahogany and walnut with dovetail joinery and mid century modern legs.
This table fully functions as a Nintendo NES controller and can be used to play games with the glass removed. The cord is retractable from underneath. The demonstration video is currently being produced and will be posted soon.
