    • It's just like any artistic effect, if used sparingly/intentionally, it can be awesome...but if it's just used haphazardly every time you take a picture of your gluten-free no-fat quinoa salad.... then it's a drag.

    • Anyone who likes garage and comics should check out the Rockin' Bones series.

      It's like an unofficial Cramps comic.

    • Just to keep this thread going, what do any of you think about the current state of comic book adaptations on the horizon? Do you think Marvel is doing a good job with their Avengers template? And how about how things are going with DC? It seems the heat is on them to try and compete with Marvel in what seems to be the laying the foundation for a "Justice League" project.

    • Jim Jarmusch gotta be up there as well. Coffee and Cigarettes, Ghost Dog and my film of all time, Night On Earth. He stays the right side of mainstream. No way will Hollywood ever make anything as good as the independants, art house etc.... They do try hard tho'.

      We introduced student loans in the late 90's. Now all our young Dr's, engineers, dentist's, teachers etc move overseas to get jobs and to either hide from repayments or to try to afford the repayments. It's costing our country billions now, it got so bad they had to stop interest been added to the loans so people would pay them off. I'd happily pay higher tax for someone’s kids to be able to go to school or get quality healthcare.

       

      Oh, and the other great thing our government is doing now; building prisons and cutting welfare, best way to deal with poor people is to make them criminals...

      It's so fucked. The whole college system in the states is ruined. I have friends getting seriously ripped off as adjunct professors. Intelligent hard working people with advanced degrees and mountains of debt that can't get benefits or a full time wage, for universities that make millions off sports and inflated tuition.

    • Any of you interested in the British Public Information Films of the 1960's-80's? They were really camp, yet chilling at the same time. Sometimes they were humourous, other times they were hard hitting, other times both at the same time. These are a real document of British society at its most patronised and patronising, but they capture what Britain really feared at the time. Whether it is stranger danger or being nuked,  That's what made them worthy of parody.

       

      Even Jimmy Savile appeared in a few, but he should have been the subject of one. If he sued for libel, the COI and the contractor could have pleaded justification. I bet Patrick Allen could have narrated and found the subject matter too creepy.

    • I'm quite a fan of Charlie Brooker myself, especially "Nathan Barley" and "Black Mirror".

      two very very dark television series to come outta Britain recently have been the sublime 'League of Gentlemen' and even darker 'Jam'. If you haven't taken'em in yet. WHY??? If you're fans of the macabre and the surreal, these will be right up yer dark alleys!

      just a wee taster. Chris Morris is as near genius as any producer across here in the last 50 years.

       

      I absolutely adore Chris Morris, especially the Brass Eye Paedophile Special. There was such an out cry about it in the tabloid press, who condemned it as "sick" when they published a photo of Charlotte Church's breasts when she was under the age of consent. As far as "Jam" goes, my favourite sketch was the doctor doing phone sex.  I'm glad "Four Lions" was mentioned, as it's funny as they come.

    • A sad follow-up post:

      That '73 Honda 600 sold for just $22,000 at auction in 2009. Sounds like a steal to me.

    • Very cool. Here's a couple images I've saved of some of his old advertising:

       

      "Crazy Painters" business card, with their original address at 9001 Atlantic in Southgate.

       

      Vintage ad for "The Crazy Painters" with Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth and Bud 'The Baron' Crozier (before Tom Kelly joined them). The best part: "Personally autographed picture of the Crazy Painters with each order, on request".

       

      Skip Barrett's business card from Roth Studios, screen printed on thin sheets of Gelgo fiberglass, 1960s:

       

      And I came across an amazing photo gallery on Flickr last year from Coop (the hot rod artist) on his collection of vintage Roth water slide decals, as well as show cars, old Monster Catalogs and more. Definitely a must-see for any Rat Fink fiend.

    • I like mine on the rocks.

       

      And yes, those cards are beautiful.
