Epic Time Kill

Posted: 31st August 2011 by affehaus in cultural, humor, music

In bite size portions. A couple of guys– Nice Peter (no, I didn’t make that up) and Lloyd Ahlquist– have put together some really-pretty good videos; 12 to date. They’re called Epic Rap Battles of History… and they pit such luminaries as Chuck Norris and Abraham Lincoln against each other. And they’re damned funny, and […]

Peter Dinklage as MODOK

Posted: 30th August 2011 by affehaus in comics, geek stuff, movies

Well– not yet… It’s all in the headline… which I para-lifted from Film School Rejects (Captain America 2 writer pushing for Peter Dinklage as MODOK). I didn’t actually read the article, because I don’t want/need to know any more.  If it comes to fruition, then we live in a just and good world.  If it […]

Superhero’s Bust

Posted: 30th August 2011 by affehaus in comics, design, geek stuff, movies

Available at Neatorama shop. That’s what the pundits have been claiming for a couple years now, anyway… ever since the glut of superhero/comic book movies. They’ve been claiming that the ‘bubble’ has exceeded, or is on the horizon of exceeding, its surface-tension. Hasn’t happened yet. Anyway–that has absolutely nothing to do with the sculpture banks […]

Posted: 30th August 2011 by affehaus in design, movies, the List

Is an artist… I’ve posted on his work before.  I just didn’t realize it.  His art is renowned for a variety of things, such as vision and ability to reduce an entire film into shapes and colors, and present those shapes & colors as a recognizable movie poster. Now… it’s all well and good for […]

The Little Hurricane that Could…

Posted: 30th August 2011 by affehaus in miscellaneous

So… Irene has come and gone.  And in spite of all the devastation and chaos the media promised, all we got were a couple of downed trees and some power outages (in Baltimore, that is… I can’t speak for New Jersey.  But then, who can?).  No flooded city; no roofs spun off of houses… really, […]

Footprints in the Sand [al]

Posted: 26th August 2011 by affehaus in design

Geta-style sandals with the imprint of your inner-animal. The Ashiato (apparently means “footprint”) is available in 5 colors and 5 styles (monkey, cat, t-rex, owl, and gecko)… but only 4 sizes.  So they’re only for children, and Danny DeVito. Pff.  I don’t care.  I already have monkey-feet. They do look like fun, though… and I […]

Pie-day

Posted: 26th August 2011 by affehaus in food stuffs, review

Today’s Pie: lemon chess The crust seemed to me uncharacteristically thick… I’m not sure if it was by design, but that actually worked well with this pie. In fact, I think the crust may have been the best part. Traditionally, the Pie Master has put meringue on his chess pies, and that has worked out […]
