Pixar-style TV & Movie Vehicles

Posted: 23rd June 2011 by affehaus in cultural, design, geek stuff, movies

Old Red Jalopy has taken seven well-known vehicles from TV shows and movies, and given them the Pixar Cars treatment. They are well executed, and the Pixar style is realized perfectly. Having said that, I have to opine that the Batmobile probably shouldn’t be ‘smiling’. And the impact of Bumble Bee is mitigated, being that […]

TV Commercial for Woolite

Posted: 21st June 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, music

This is a Woolite commercial; it’s titled Torture. And… it’s directed by Rob Zombie. This is such a well crafted juxtaposition of so diverse a set of cultural elements that I would go so far as to call it ‘beautiful’*.     *”beauty”, naturally being in the ‘eye of the beholder’… and in this case, […]

Pie-day

Posted: 17th June 2011 by 7ucyClark in food stuffs, review

Todays Pie: Strawberry-rhubarb Crust was a lattice-top; a lovely and elegant structure.  Color was golden-brown, and texture was light ‘n flaky.  The light dusting of sugar enhanced both the appearance, giving the pie a jewel-like quality, and the flavor, the crust’s mild sweetness helping to bolster against the tartness of the stalky component of the […]

Gremlins in Disguise

and the anatomy thereof:   In ‘honor’ of the impending Smurfs movie, Pop Chart Lab has done “some preliminary Smurf studies”, and created this image as a result. Smurfs.  Who knew they had spur-claws?

Invisibility Cloak

Metamaterials are ‘fabrics’, the weave of which is composed of structures smaller than the wavelength of light.  The upshot is that this material can bend light, effectively making a piece of metamaterial a swatch of Invisibility Cloak.  Except that no one had been able to create the material in any kind of usable area. ‘Til […]
