Ian McKellen and the Fleshtones

Ah, another reason to love Sir Ian McKellen, as if I needed more.

We’re running with the shadows of the night…

OK, I know this is the second time in a week I’ve pilfered from Topless Robot, but I would never forgive myself if I didn’t share with you gentle souls the wonderment of this Shadowrun RPG trailer from 1990. It’s totally boss.

You can thank me in the comments.

Steampunk Masks

There’s no comment needed really. The awesomeness speaks for itself.

Except, of course, one cannot go without calling special attention to the leather Cthulhu mask.

Someone’s Best Films of the Decade

Sean T Collins linked to Rob Humanick’s rather ballsy list of his top (favorite) 100 movies of the decade. There are a lot of flicks on the list I simply didn’t care for, but for the record I’d also rank these in my Top 100 of the decade as well:

A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
MULHOLLAND DR.
THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU
LOST IN TRANSLATION
There Will Be Blood
Zodiac
Gangs of New York
Donnie Darko
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
No Country for Old Men
Kill Bill: Volume 2
The Royal Tenenbaums
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Ghost World
WALL-E
The Fountain
War of the Worlds
The Proposition
Catch Me If You Can
Casino Royale
Adaptation
Lilo & Stitch
Hellboy II: The Golden Army
Ratatouille
The Squid and the Whale
Narc

Of course, now I want to add titles like “City of God,” “The Prestige,” “Let the Right One In,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Battle Royale,” “The Dark Knight,” “Spider-man II,” “Traffic,” “Oldboy,” “Rules of Attraction,” “The Ring,” “Ocean’s 11,” “King Kong,” and “Star Trek.” And those are just off the top of my head.

I think I’ll mull this over a bit and throw my hat in the ring by the New Year. Because lists making is fun. Hell, I might even try and rank ’em!

Kaiju on Black Velvet

Beautiful work by artist Bruce White, showing once again that black velvet paintings are not just for folks who vacation in Graceland.

Ceramic double-rotor two-wheel disk drive!

Yes, that is a to-scale replica of Kaneda’s bike from Akira. Apparently, there are lots of folks out there who have tried to hobby one of these together.

Since I don’t know how to ride, I’ll settle for one of Sideshow’s 1/6 scale replicas, with functioning lights!
