Victorian Style Silhouettes

Posted: 31st May 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, design, geek stuff

by Olly Moss The catalog is as epic as it is inspired. The artist also makes some pretty cool material choices, such as Carmen Sandiego being constructed from an atlas page. I’m pretty sure the last one in this post is the chick from Total Recall… but I prefer to think of her as what […]

New Thing for Bike

Posted: 31st May 2011 by 7ucyClark in not a sports blog, riding

The Triple Back-Flip.  Every bike should have one. Jed Mildon gets 3 full rotations and a perfect landing.  That’s impressive, sure… but watching the video, the thing that made my [redacted] clench? the POV of him going down the decline.  And pedaling. found via Geekosystem

Felix

Posted: 30th May 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, design, I made

The first in the Affehaus ‘Trickster’ series (1 of 3) The original cartoon trickster (so far as research leads… if anyone can refute this, I invite rebuttal), since 1919. Sharpie on paper

The Arctic Marauder

Posted: 30th May 2011 by 7ucyClark in book, comics, cultural, design, geek stuff, review

If Scooby Doo and Dastardly and Muttley in their Flying Machines had a baby.  And it grew up French and Steam Punk. A graphic novel by Jacques Tardi; the work was originally produced in 1974, but has been retranslated for the 2011 reprint.  And for this I am much pleased; I don’t speak French. The  […]

Fifty Baddies

Posted: 26th May 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, design, geek stuff, movies

   created by Robert Ball. Is pretty cool; I like the inclusion of the more obscure villains– it strokes my geek-vanity that I can identify (most of) them. There appear to be some significant groupings, too, such as the Jack Torrence adjacent to the (2008) Joker… and Maximillian over-top of Sark. Not so sure about […]

Starbuck’s Viper

Posted: 26th May 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, design, geek stuff, I made

So… I did a search for this, because I couldn’t believe that no one had done it yet, and I couldn’t find anything.  So as far as I’m concerned, I did it first. But I’m still having a tough time believing it. Thanks to BeebeCom for the tutorials/help.

Warrior Dash

Posted: 25th May 2011 by 7ucyClark in I made, movies, not a sports blog

A ‘rough’ of the flag that I’d like to carry for next year’s Warrior Dash. The tartan is clan MacQueen; those colors suited best.  I couldn’t find a clan Parr. Sharpie and pencil on paper.

Epic Time-Kill

Posted: 24th May 2011 by 7ucyClark in music

AV Club has compiled 170 references from the works of the Beastie Boys. That’s not the notable bit.  The notable bit is that they’ve researched and explained them. An exhaustive and invaluable resource. found via Scott Beale/Laughing Squid

So, there’s this…

The Sucker Punch home release is going to include 18 minutes of new footage that, in addition to (hopefully) fleshing out the story, will also bump the rating up to ‘R’. My review of the movie wasn’t overly favorable (in fact, it was a bit harsh), but in spite of the film’s lack of coherence, […]

Green With Envy

Posted: 24th May 2011 by 7ucyClark in geek stuff, movies

So… watch this. Because, who doesn’t love romantic comedies?  Seriously.  Who doesn’t? My anticipation for this movie (which was strictly casual) has risen exponentially. Green with envy.  Indeed.
