The hilariously practical reason why He-Man has a giant green tiger

I'm endlessly fascinated by the behind-the-scenes chaos of the 80s action-figure-cartoon pipeline. Advertising direct to kids was frowned upon — but no one would necessarily stop you from creating a kids show that inadvertently advertised its own action figure line. Who cared about the storyline or quality? — Read the rest

Bidens’ Fanciful Executive Lip Service Action-Orders ~ VIDEO

Bidens’ Fanciful Executive Lip Service Action-Orders IMG NRA-ILA New Jersey – -(AmmoLand.com)-  With the impending doom of gunmegeddon and the uncertainty of what may come from all the introduced bills, there is big talk about the White House taking executive measures to stop so-called gun violence.  You might have missed it, but I did something clever.  I said “executive measures”, essentially is a non-sense phrase.  Why does that matter?  Because of a very interesting thing that was pointed...

Automotif CCXV...

BRICS, the ice cream shop on the Monon Trail in the heart of Broad Ripple Village, has the most incredibly twee ice cream truck: A Citroen H Van. The H Van was a commercial cargo van offered by Citroen in the early postwar period. Debuting in 1947, it remained in production largely unchanged until 1981. Unusual for a van, it was of unit-body construction, with no underlying ladder frame. This fact and the fact that it was front-wheel drive allowed it to have a long, low, unobstructed ca...

John Oliver explains 'Stand Your Ground' laws

Prepare to be upset at the stupidity of the United States gun laws. John Oliver does a fantastic job of tearing into why some states permit people to shoot people in public when they feel threatened. Gun enthusiast at the top of John Oliver's video reminded me of this scene from Johnny Dangerously.

Watch Accurate Recreations of Medieval Italian Longsword Fighting Techniques, All Based on a Manuscript from 1404

Given recent events, the prospect of hundreds of young men meeting on Facebook, then traveling from around the country to a central U.S. location might sound like reasonable cause for alarm. Yet a recent convention fitting that description had nothing to do with political violence but, rather, a celebration and appreciation of the name “Josh” (full disclosure: this writer did not attend). The gathering of the Joshes this past April in Nebraska could not have been more peaceful, including...

Boomer-ang

When I got back into film photography back at the end of 2013, it was mostly by accident; the result of buying a Leica R4 on a lark just because it was so cheap that I could afford what was once an unattainable object of desire just to put on my desk as a fidget spinner. Seriously, it was something like ninety bucks at KEH, a tenth of what it had cost new in the Eighties. Film cameras... even Leicas, other than the rarer variants of the classic M-series... had fallen into the Trough of No...
