The Old New No Way Home?


By now, many to most of the people who see stuff here have already witnessed the awesomeness that is the first ‘Spiderman: No Way Home’ trailer. Dr. Strange makes much more than a cameo, but seems to be a full fledged protagonist although it’s a Spiderman story. Dr. Strange isn’t a stranger to (sorry, we couldn’t find a way around that one) to Peter Parker and his alter ego in the source material as we can see by a re-worked 90’s trailer. The 90’s Spiderman cartoon show is edited and married spectacularly over the audio of the first “No Way Home” trailer. They would be hard pressed to find, but if there’s anyone who hasn’t seen the original trailer, show them this one first before presenting the live action MCU version, just to see what they think. Either which way, enjoy.

Garmin D2 Pilot Watch


03

Garmin have announced the D2 Pilot watch, an ultra-slick, wrist-friendly GPS watch designed for pilots. It includes all the basic features on other old-school aviator watches, but offers other features gadget-hungry pilots will appreciate. You can load a flight plan on it and check GPS ground speed, GPS track, distance, estimated route time, bearing, glide ratio, and more. The wrist-sized GPS also finds the nearest airport if you need to land quickly and allows you to remotely control Garmin’s HD action camera, VIRB.

By capturing scenes of floating old-school cadillac and mercedes-benz’s, french photographer renaud marion portrays a jetsons-type future of how vehicles would have seemed to him in the 2000s as a child in ‘air drive’ highlighting the glamorous designs of a time when the cars were recognized as icons and symbols to society.

Vitange Playboy Bunny Shots.


Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Clubs—in existence from the early 1960s to the mid-80s—were perhaps the best manifestation of his singular, swinging-bachelor-pad lifestyle. And the waitresses (those cantilevered, cotton-tailed ladies in corsets and hose) still endure as one of America’s most lasting sex symbols. In conjunction with Bruce Handy’s comprehensive oral history of the clubs, which appeared in the May 2011 U.K. edition of Vanity Fair, looks back at those girls in ears.

Dear Photograph…


Photography is something that has always captivated me, and every so often I’ll find a collection of photographs that truly fascinating.  About a year ago, I put up a post titled “Reflections” that showed an interesting link between peoples past and present, and this collection runs in the same vein.  These photographs are real life meshes of the past and the present using vintage photos displayed in the exact same place they were originally taken years later.  Check the method.

How To Talk Dirty.


During an interesting conversation with one of my best friends about women who’s second language is English, we somehow awkwardly stumbled into discussing the concept of talking dirty.  When speaking a language thats not your primary one, ‘talking dirty’ can go awry, but even if your English is perfect and things goes wrong, it can be very awkward.  (or incredibly funny).  It so happens that a few hours after said conversation, my homegirl sent me this instructional video to show people about just how to talk dirty.

Real Life Vintage Mugshots.


I didn’t want to insult anyone’s intelligence by putting the words “Real Life” at the beginning of the post, but some of these photographs are so striking that many people may have thought they were designed to look this way.  From the writing on the photos to point out attributes of the criminals, down to the lighting and background of all these incredible pictures… one thing stands out to the most to me.  Back in the day, there weren’t too many black people getting locked up… (INTERESTING.)

WTF Picture From The Distant Past. (Part 2)


With the globalization of the internet, there are trillions of images that float around, and an immeasurable number of pictures that make people say “WTF” on a daily basis.  I came across a series of these pictures that had a bit of a twist to them.  All of said photos are authentic, vintage, and dated between the 1920’s and 1940’s.  The number of pictures that caught my attention was so great that I had to split it up into two posts (the first post dropped yesterday and you can see it here) but the subject matter and content of all the photos are unique, but I guarentee you all that all of them will make you (in one way or another) think to yourself “WTF”.   Check part 2.

The Most Hillarious PSA In 50 Years.


So in the process of starting work on my newest project (which I CAN NOT say anything about until New Years, so please don’t ask) I came across a video during a break that I’m still laughing at right now.  Old School PSA’s are often misdirected, and full or sexual, racial, religious, and class oriented slurs, but this one from the mid 50’s was just perplexing both as to its purpose, and its target audience.  None the less, me and my boys I’ve been working with were cracking up for a solid hour with some of the “issues” tackled in this PSA video.  It might just be our sense of humor, and the vibe in the room at the moment we watched it, but check the method below, let me know what you think.

Classic Illustrations from the 60’s


We all know I’m far to young to be a 60’s baby, but the artwork from the time has always fascinated me.  It started from some of the ad posters from the old school James Bond movies and continued to strike me as impressive to this day, so seeing these pieces brought me back to my childhood.  They come from multiple illustrators, but all convey the same sexy/dangerous, suave/distinguished vibe that was portrayed in so much of 60’s media.
