CHOCOLATE BEER Served in a CHOCOLATE GLASS?!? YES, PLEASE!


In order to compliment the flavor of their chocolate stout, Japanese brewery Sankt Gallen created a special set that includes a 330 mL bottle of the drink, as well as a completely edible glass that’s made entirely out of chocolate.
Rocket News 24 is quick to explain that the chocolate glass might be able to counteract the bitterness of the the ‘ultra-dark beer’, which is apparently brewed ‘with over twice the ingredients of your average dark beer including roasted ‘chocolate malt’.

This Kid is My Hero!




By using twin turbine engines, normally used in RC jets, Fritz Unger from Germany is working on 'Project Skyflash' that is seen here getting closer to putting himself into the air with his homemade jetpack. Fritz and his team want to be able to launch a human being 25,000 feet into the sky right from ground level, just like Iron Man. 
Can't blame them for that.

And Now, in WTF News...

This crime against the eyes sold for $200 on eBay
Now, I love horrific wearable Nic Cage art just as much as the next guy, but $200?!? Really?

Prepare to S#!t Your Pants For... THE CONJURING!


It's from the same folks who brought us SAW and Insidious, and stars one of my favorite indie chicks; Lili Taylor!

JUST IN - Chris Cooper to Play Norman Osborn in Spider-Man 2!

Please, please, please don't put him in a leftover Power Rangers costume this time. Kay? Kay!

Awww... How Cute is This?!?


Why is the mom dressed as the TARDIS? Because the Doctor has only one true love: her. This supercute family was spotted at Katsucon in Washington, D.C.:
As I asked to take this photo, Dad says “OK girls, point your plungers” and they promptly looked at me and said the keyword to my heart … EX-TER-MI-NATE!

New Poster For Iron Man 3!

A second full-length trailer for Iron Man 3 has been readied for release with Oz The Great and Powerful on March 8. It runs two minutes and twenty five seconds, and according to the Little Monsters who have seen it, it’s rather spectacular.

Think About This The Next Time You Take Your Cardboard to be Recycled...

Paul Warner created this incredible Optimus Prime entirely out of cardboard! No time to rest on your Laurels, Paul - get that thing painted!!

Man (At Arms) Creates Finn's Sword From Adventure Time!



Watch Tony Swatton, a blacksmith armorer for over 30 years, create one of the most powerful swords in the history of the post-apocalyptic cartoon future.
FINN'S GOLDEN SWORD OF BATTLE (aka scarlet)
"He forges iconic weapons using high-speed belt grinders, scorching furnaces, and pounding power hammers. Then he takes his weapon to the streets to bust up some stuff."

Now THAT'S Clever!

How can you go wrong with a Resume Candy Bar?!? Well, if you have my luck, your potential employer is most likely diabetic.

 Nick Begley's mouth-watering résumé was completely successful:
Begley created a dozen chocolate bar resumes that he used strategically.
"Some were sent to land me the interview, while others were used as a 'leave behind' after an interview," he said. "I always used it as a supplement to a paper resume or online application since the candy bar was more of a gimmick and didn't provide my work history or credentials." His $30 investment got him the job.
Please submit your résumé via email attachment and include three brownie recipies. Your cover letter should be written with frosting on a sheet cake.

This is Pretty Rad...

Manson as the Joker is particularly inspired.

Don't Care - Still Want 'em!


AWESOME ART!

Check out this Mondo? movie poster for this year's best picture Oscar winner; Argo! Wow, this was the first time and years that I actually saw the winning movie in the theater! BTW - if you haven't seen it, you should. It's the shit.

This is Me When I Go Back Home to Alabama

You just don't know how much of my life revolves around Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. If you've never had one hot off the line, you can never truly understand.

I Love These...




There's just something about the absolutely absurd notion of getting mauled by a family of Baboons in your suburban living room that really speaks to me.

3-D Monster is Branchin' Out!


Along with awesome art prints, shadowboxes, canvases, collectibles, T-Shirts and decals, we have decided to launch a line of official 3-D Monster skateboards!!! As a skater, this is a true passion project for me and something I've wanted to do for a long time! However, the businessman in me is always wary about over-extending myself, so this will start off as an experiment just to test the waters.

I've done a lot of research, and have been speaking with multiple companies in order to find the highest quality boards for the best price, and I think I've narrowed the field down to a couple of contenders. I'm starting off with a single old-school, coffin-shaped decks with the 3-D Monster logo on the top of the board, and my artwork on the bottom just to test the waters. The coffin decks are pricier, but I really dig the cut, and think that it will fit in with the overall vibe of the site and my art.

I will be offering these for $80-$85 per deck, and $140 for a complete board.

***UPDATE***
The first official design for the first 3-D Monster skateboard has been chosen and can be viewed directly below! I'm going to order one as a prototype to ride and inspect for quality and skatepark performance. If all goes well, I will take photos and video of the actual product and make them available for purchase. I'm not sure if I should do a bulk order or have each one made sale by sale, so if you're really interested in purchasing one, I would appreciate it if you could let me know in the comments section or by emailing me at; threedmonster@yahoo.com. Remember, the more I order in bulk, the lower I can keep the price!

I'm also going to offer the option of applying custom grip tape for an extra charge, or shipping the board without the tape. Also, the size of the 3-D Monster logo may be smaller on the actual board
(The designs below are still in the planning and dependent upon the sales of the premier board)

Iron Man 3 Space and Hulkbuster Armor Concepts Leaked!

You can file this one under the "bullshit or not?" category as rumors have been flying rampantly about the film lately. Will The Hulk make an appearance? Is Tony involved in some type of deep space mission? Will the last moments of Iron Man 3 lead directly into 2014's "Guardians of The Galaxy"? Guess we'll have to wait until May to find out. Either way, both armor concepts are bad-ass!

Khalil Marenco turned a tedious droid into a striking outfit. The wiring around the waist is a nice touch. This dress can't translate anything, but it communicates well enough

We Need One of These Here in Maine!

I would LIVE there!
Sandy beach, palm trees and clear, blue water. But if you think that these vacationeers are lounging on a warm tropical island, you'd be wrong. They're inside a giant hangar in snowy Germany:
The 'resort' is actually located on the site of a former Soviet military air base in Krausnick, Germany. Tropical Islands is inside a hangar built originally to house airships designed to haul long-distance cargo. And despite it looking like temperatures are through the roof - outside the giant hangar it is actually snowing.

So, I Caught "Mama" at The Theater Last Night...

and I will be ridiculed by my family for years because I screamed like a little girl at one particularly scary moment! Have ya'll seen this? "Mama" herself, is one of the scariest damn things I have ever seen on film - very reminiscent of the ghost from The Grudge, but even creepier. Excellent flick all around! Here's the official synopsis;

Guillermo del Toro presents Mama, a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.

Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.

As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.
