Well Then…

Posted: 16th November 2011 by affehaus in movies

It appears that Pixar is back on track. Which, given their latest release*, seems a poor choice of words… But the trailer for Brave (formerly The Bear and the Bow) is out, and… well, quite frankly, it’s fah-king fantastic. It truly does look like a return to form for the vaunted studio. The visuals are […]

Or something like that. Kanye West has a Twit account, and thanks to the inspired vision of Paul Sabourin (of Paul & Storm), people can now juxtapose their favorite tweets of the renowned rapper and public embarrassment artist with New Yorker cartoons. Result? Instant classics… more examples after the jump.  

“Similar to Bumper Cars…”

… in very much the same way that ‘tag’ is similar to the UFC. Hammacher Schlemmer, that repository for all things shiny and impractical, is now selling class-action lawsuits in the form of motorized fighters that– and here’s the fun bit– the combatants sit in while operating. The Bionic Bopper Car “These are the motorized […]

Lucy crafted some loverly earrings. Being less able to build something original out of discreet componants, I simply looked around my pile of detritus […]

Pie-day

Posted: 11th November 2011 by affehaus in food stuffs, review

Today’s Pie: piña colada The crust was firm, but tasty– a condition that I’ve come to anticipate with the cold-assembled pies. It had a very nice flavor, but a peculiar sort of density not common to the conventionally baked (convection-ally baked?) pies. Still… it was a fine crust, and I enjoyed every stroke of mastication, […]

Mayhem at the Manor

I have to admit that I’m a little baffled by this… but I am, at the same time, both awed and captivated. [click to embiggen] by Les McClaine at Evil Space Robot It’s imaginative, fun, and includes nods to several iterations of the Batman mythos. It tickled me not just a little bit to see […]

Codex Seraphinianus

apparently a notable book of enigmatic content… yet, one notoriously difficult to obtain. Now available at an interwebs near you. For free.

Who Watched Us, by Blue at Qwertee An interesting commentary, but more importantly, a total badge of geek cred that most people won’t understand. Like wearing a Masonic handshake. The Doctor Is In at TeeMinus24 Not as cool as Snakes on a Cane, but still kind’a neat.
