A quick picture post before my holiday

I’m off on holiday form Thursday ’til Monday, so I thought that since they’re generally quicker and easier for me (while I’m working an getting organised), and hopefully entertaining for you, I’d make a picture post -post.

Enjoy!

Guess who’s back? So here’s a list ;)

Hi, i’m back from my weekend in Lincioln (which was great fun by the way. Check out my gallery for photos of the awesome Cathedral)ย  and I have a bumper Link-List post for y’all. So grab a cup of tea (or whatever floats your boat), sit back, and enjoy your procrastination.

Peace ~!

Art of the Day

Brian Mviveros

Highly sexy, vintage style pinup art of girls who all like a good smoke. Nice stuff.

The Truman Show

Script

I like to think of myself as a writer, so i find it fascinating to find movie or episode scripts online, becausee you can see how your favourite films are put together on the page, and get an appreciation for not only what the writers bring,ut what the actors and directors can do with the material they’re given. so I was actually happy to find the full script of one of my favourite films – the Truman show. As well as being interesting in general, if you’ve not seen the film, you can give it a read, but you need to watch it – it’s awesome.

20 Awesome Lego Mech Creations

For all you mech nerds out there ๐Ÿ˜‰

Damnit, why did I never have the creative mind to make these as a kid? Or even now? How they put them together baffles me. I just get proud when I can make stuff when i follow the instructions. Haha

The Making of Josh Hoffine’s ‘Devil’

Now THAT’s how you do photography, kids.

Check out the rest of his work – it’s pretty darn cool.

Motivation of the Day

The Largo Siblings’ Myspace – Repo! The Genetic Opera

Indulging in my current obsession, I came across these hilarious and inventiveย  Myspace pages for the characters of ‘Repo! the Genetic Opera’. Definitely check out the journal interviews, esp for Luigi – they had me giggling.

Luigi Largo

Pavi Largo

Amber Sweet

The Causal Side of Bombsquad Work

So very cruel, and yet utterly hilarious

Music of the Day

Another Suitcase in Another Hall – From ‘Evita’ – Sung by Madonna

I used to listen to this soundtrack all the time as a kid (heck, we didn’t have that much music choice haha) – and I still love Evita, so here’s one of my favourite songs. I love the lyrics too, esp the ‘call in three months time’ bit.


The Dark Knight – ‘I hate you guys’

By rotten-apples

This made me giggle – and it’s interesting seeing all the villains out of costume. I โค Harvey Dent in this film…but mainly because the design of two-face is awesome. Loving the joker goes without saying nowadays :p

Jewellery Makers

They demand respect

A hell of a lot of work goes into their craft.

Awesome house..

is awesome.

Bizarre and Stylish Steampunk Creations

Steampunk never gets old,

Shopping Spree

Russian Roulette Water Balloons

This idea is EPIC. I want to play.

Ornate Octopus Necklace

An odd shop, but oddly sweet and well made. I like, even if I wouldn’t necessarily wear most of the stuff. This little fella, however, i think I would wear.

Alien Facehugger Plushie

I want it, it’s MINE! *huggles*

BRB Yo.

Howdy everyone ๐Ÿ˜€

In picking this picture, I only just realised how appropriate it is for easter (tee hee) so added bonus!

methinks I feel a theme coming on…

-ahem-

Anyways, I’ll be away this weekened, so the usual list and Friday review will have to be postponed until sunday. and again April 2nd I’m off on holiday for a week.

Buuut – I have a couple of reviews lined up for ‘Don’t mess with the Zohan’ย  and the new ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and plenty of nifty links.

So i’ll be around, but at any rate, have a great easter for while I don’t see you ๐Ÿ˜‰

And, in leaving, here’s a vid from the great, completly camp, musical ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’

Laters!

Picture Passion

Howdy and welcome. Recently I keep coming across some great snippets of images and gifs, but in the old system I had nowhere to put them, so I’m toying with adding a new weekly feature of ‘picture passion’ to showcase individual awesome visual finds that perhaps don’t lend themselves to a link list.

So yup this is a trial run to see if it works – let me know if you enjoy it and want it to be a regular feature.

Failing that, I might incorporate them into your usual link-lists. I just don’t want to make it look too cluttered.

Links to the source of the images should be available if you click the image, provided I can get wordpress to work out right -haha

Enjoy!

Thank God It’s Friday Review: Tropic Thunder

Name: Tropic Thunder

Genre: Satire Comedy

Certificate: 15

Rotton Tomatoes synopsis:

“…A desperate director named Damien Cockburn (Steve Coogan) trying to make a Vietnam war movie drops his pampered actors into the heart of the jungle. Cockburn’s stars include Stiller as an action hero who’s starting to make bad career choices, Jack Black as an insecure low-brow comedy star going through heroin withdrawals, and Robert Downey Jr. as an Australian Oscar winner so lost in his “craft” he underwent a procedure to become black for his role. In the jungle, they remain under the delusion that they are still being filmed even after they encounter a dangerous gang of druglords. The film’s basic premise has popped up several times since Hollywood’s 1970s golden age in films such as THREE AMIGOS! and GALAXY QUEST. Where those films simply blanketed a classic Overconfident Bumbling Idiot comedy showcase with a pop culture lexicon, however, TROPIC THUNDER could have only been made, as on-the-nose at is, by people who have been working in the Hollywood system for years, making cutting observations along the way. Simply put, this raucous satire knows big-budget filmmaking, the delusional narcissism of actors, and even the good points of those actors–perhaps why they’re celebrated–like the back of its hand.”

DT’s Rating: 8/10


Review:

I’ve been wanting to see this for a while, but never got around to it, but now I’ve finally seen it I’ve gotta to say it’s well worth a watch. The first ‘trailers’ of the film showing the characters in their past acting roles were great parodies that made me giggle and opening scene in itself is a hilarious Vietnam War film parody. I remember being forced to sit through Apocalypse Now for hours on end, and I’ve never been a war-movie fan personally, so I loved the piss-take. As the film carried on to become a satire of hollywood, again it was right on the button, and was funny all the way. The actors (the real ones, I mean), were perfectly cast, and countless well-known faces popped up. Steve Coogan was in his element playing the socially awkward somewhat of a loser of a director pushed to the edge and Tom cruise was oddly awesome, donning a fat-suit and balding cap to play the shit-scary-and-crazyย  millionaire who was funding the film. Robert Downey jr (who is consistently awesome in his films anyway) was brilliant in the somehow confusing and controversial role of a method actor who blacks up for the part, to the point where it was difficult to even be sure it was him. Ben Stiller, of course, was the central role, but the comic actor was right on form as usual, and had me in stitches through most of the film, bringing the spirit from the great dodgeball characters, yet with a tad more maturity. Jack Black was again in his element – while he’s often typecast as these kind of characters, he doe sit for a reason: he can play them well. Finally the supporting cast were all great in their own ways. The film story was entertaining – a blend of goofy at times and very clever and sharp in others, such as the surprisingly insightful discussion between Downey jr and Stiller over the dangers of an actor playing ‘full retard’ as opposed to the oscar winning ‘rainman’ or ‘forrest gump’ talented retard.

In short? A very entertaining film I’d recommend ๐Ÿ˜‰

Digital fantasy art at some of it’s best. โค On deviantart remember to click gallery and check out ‘scraps’ too.

Amazing Album Cover Compilations

Mix and Match

I’ve seen a good few of these types of things around the ‘net recently’. Such as people using album covers as parts of their own body/scenes. But i think this my favourite kind – taking it away from normal people and putting multiples albums together to create awesome collages. Great stuff.

The Charelston To Daft Punk

Funky

Why don’t people dance like this anymore? It’s awesome. Modern ‘musicians’ (and i use the term loosely for the pop artists who tend to do this anyway) should stop raping Michael Jackson’s dance moves for a while and do something like thsi for a change in pace. I’d rather see something more original rather than a carbon copy of MJ’s former awesomeness. [/end rant lol]

40 Clever Advertising Campaigns of McDonald’s

Gotta love good ol’ ‘Maccy-D’

Some of these are really clever and well done. But then again they are a multi-billion dollar corporation. You’d hope that they could at least pay for some good advertising, wouldn’t you?

Gallery of Movie and Video Wall clocks

“I find your Tardiness Disturbing”

Some of these are awesome, though i dunno if I’d have them in my house -haha I especially like the Darth Vader one, and the ones that have tiny Star Wars and Star Trek ships on them.

I found this oddly entertaining. You type in words and the avatar speaks to you surprisingly well. They even have different accents you can choose. Simple as that.

I adore space and planets and all that Jazz. These photos of Mars are just stunning.
