The Green Slime

I think I need to watch this just for Luciana Paluzzi. Rowf!

She still looked pretty darn good in 2007, on right below.

La Napoule


According to this LIFE magazine article, art collector Henry Clews had a taste for the bizzare, as seen in the statue above. His French Mediterranean home is now a museum, and you can visit, or even apply for an arts residency there!

The Amazing 3

A goofball dancing horse, a sexy bunny, and a self-important guitar-playing duck with a Moe Howard haircut? I almost don't want to know what this anime is all about! Just by itself, this clip is perfection.

But you can learn the whole story here.

Follies of the Mad Men #170


Now that PBR is a hipster beer, I wonder if they will revive this old ad campaign which is like some Twilight Zone episode where humans have been turned into hideous 2-D ribbons.

Original ad here.

How Dale Became Famous (In Certain Circles)


Screenshot from a new video by one of my favorite artists, Chris Mars.

Not embeddable, but definitely worth a visit to Facebook.

Jack Kirby Omnibus

If you enjoy old school comics, especially by the master, Jack Kirby, you'll want to purchase the volume depicted at right. It's full of Silver Age weirdness in the unselfconscious manner of the day.

Here's my favorite example, from the story titled "I Was Big-Game on Neptune."


An Earthman is kidnapped and finds himself in prison with five other beings, all uniquely bizarre. Pretty hard to mistake one for another, right?


Not according to our hero, who has to label them for ease of identification, with hard-to-distinguish-at-a-distance nametags!

I love the expression on the beaky face of the orange guy. He's thinking, "This guy is dumber than a bag of Saturnian hammers!"
