When I finally do have a house, I will do something awesome like this to one of the rooms. Check out this site devoted to one person's fascination with molded plastic and the future that we never achieved thanks to things like cherry wood & stainless steel appliance kitchens, wrought iron accents, and the general public's lack of inspiration.

I've tried this before on a much smaller scale in various apartments, (I even used to have the same bed, thank you mrs dean for making me get rid of it) and have a small collection of funky white furniture but never anything close to this extent. Great job on this house, whoever you are. The one piece dining table is remarkable.

Though if I could critique... and I can, it's the interent. They have to make sure they keep the collecting in check, it's a fine like between amazing collection in your house and it looking like a store.

Well done Space Man!!

Had a grea time at Comic-Con, working on the video now, but man am I pissed that I missed out on Flynn's arcade. This thing they do where they put attractions outside of the Convention Center... grrrr. oh well. The good news is that finally they've released the test footage from last year online and man is it bad ass.

TRON Reboot.

As you may or may not know I am an unapologetic fan of Tron. I understand why people may not like it, I'm just not one of them. Not only that, but as a fan of the shorts/ads of Joseph Kosinsky and a huuuuge fan of Daft Punk, I'm wicked excited for the TR2N 2.2 & 2/2nds (or whatever they're calling it this week).

But until then, this project by Ben Hansford more than wets my whistle for new Tron. Not only is it graphically pitch perfect, but its tone and references are so on point that I'm guessing Ben must be a fan. If not, then the MCP tips his cylinder to your clever skewering.



As a personal note, my work on Boom Kat was more than a little inspired by Tron.

This is an old one, but I was reminded of it today so figured I'd post it. I knew there was something good about Seattle when I moved here and saw this ad actually running on local TV. Where else do Storm Troopers make cameos in Auto Insurance Ads?

I'll preface this by saying that when you are married to a European one of the biggest cultural differences is music. Every so often my special lady will bring up some song that was a signifigant moment in her upbringing, something that was a huge hit in her native Holland, something that I have never heard before. For me Alphaville was a distant memory that I guess gets played at weddings occasionally. For her they were a chart topping powerhouse. I will admittedly chalk some of my ignorance up to the fact that outside of really big pop artists I only listened to the oldies that my parents played, old soul, Beatles, Beach Boys etc... and then slammed head first into Heavy Metal with "Appetite" and a smattering of hip hop and rap with NWA and Black Sheep.

So last night as we were breezing through the MJ memorial and Jermaine Jackson got up to sing Sabine said
"Remember him and Pia Zadora?"
"I loved that song!!!"
"WHAT?! The girl from Naked Gun 3?"
"He and her did these songs together, one was huge!!!"

Apparently in Holland it was, here, notsomuch. In any case we looked it up online and I have to say I'm loving this song right now. With all the time I've spent being addicted to the synth revolution, primarily the Valerie (go grab it all) stuff this is right up my alley.
And the video is awesome. You know how the Italians ripped off and made their own shitty yet awesome versions of Escape from NY, The Warriors, and Star Wars? This is their rip off of Beat It, complete with white leather Mad Max warriors. Will this be to your liking? Probably not, I have weird taste, but whatever... Here it is.

Oh yeah and apparently it's from a film called "Voyage of the Rock Aliens". Which I have also sadly never heard of before today. That's why that poster is up there.

Put this together for this week's Disaster. Don't normally cross post but what the hell, I really like this one.
