Want: Blade Runner Blaster Replica

If you’ve ever watched and enjoyed Blade Runner will you please take a moment and explain it to me. I’ve watched it several times because I constantly am hearing people talking about how good it is and I just don’t get it. That movie just confuses the hell out of me. Never-the-less I can still …

Fatality: 7-Year-Old Black Belt

Until I saw this video I’ve never had any fear that any number of first graders posed me any real threat. Now I see the error in my hubris. If 7-year-old Mahiro came after me in a dark alley or a well-lit gymnasium I’m pretty sure she could tear out my still beating heart, show …

5 Tolkien Characters too Big for the Big Screen

I’ve had this theory for a while that some movies don’t adequately communicate the terror of the monsters simply due to the shear size of said monsters. People just can’t wrap their minds around a creature that trips on 700 foot sky scrapers in the same way they trip on a coffee table. Think about …

Where have You been all My Life: Deep-Fried Doritos-Crusted Bacon

Lately I’ve been trying to come up with foods that can be labeled as “geek food.” This one applies. This, as the title implies, is deep-fried Doritos-crusted bacon. Yes it’s like a dream come true.

Labor Intensive: People Made of Wire

Brooklyn-based Korean artist Seung Mo Park created a group of sculptures that he’s calling Human. They have me super impressed. The sculptures are created from fiberglass forms wrapped with aluminum wire. It’s got to be like elevently billion miles of aluminum wire too because these are not small sculptures. I can’t even begin to fathom …
