Thor and Captain America!

Wow! This concept artwork looks great! They are definitely playing up to Captain America's WWII origin-era birth as an American super-soldier built to created to dismantle the Nazi war machine. Could this carry the tone and intensity of Band of Brothers, except where one of the brothers is Captain America?

I love the Wagnerian scope and tone of this battle between Loki and Thor! I can hear the score booming in my head - an entire legion of tubas, baritones and trombones belting out Branagh's vision of Sigfried's Funeral.

This artwork looks great. It will be amazing to see all this realized in lavish productions. I hope they remember to breath some life into them as well.

These are from MTV's coverage of Comic-Con.

More hilarity at!

Star Wars Personal Transport Prototype

Wow! Its a cross between a Phantom Menace racing pod and a Return of the Jedi speeder bike! You know, except for the slow speed.

Thanks Grimmbot!

Travel Photos: #0003

Check out this groovy lost temple at the zoo in lovely Audubon Park in New Orleans, from a visit on May 6, 2008.

Perhaps it was all those Robert E. Howard stories I read as a teenager, lost cities in desert, island and jungle - all populated with gibbering, toothy-mawed horrors and/or the last perverse shreds of humanity - repugnant charades of civilization drenched in madness and orgy - and all soon to know the business end of Conan's mighty hewing sword! Or perhaps my dad and stepmom were right - that the living energy that is the true meaning of each of us returns to wear the mobile meat box over and over again, that for each of us there are past lives to which images like these might speak. Whatever the reasons, scenes of lost civilization really resonate for me, whether Detroit 2010 or the truly ancient - long and then almost countless generations to reach the times of the Khmer Empire (1,200 years ago), Greece (2,800 years ago), Ancient Egypt (5,100 years ago), Sumeria (7,000 years ago!). Indeed, any one of us is only dust in the wind - like one of so many ants.

In the meantime, that fountain feature in the last photo would make a great and do-able centerpiece for a ruins-themed backyard micro-pool/patio/hot tub area. Where this one has stone eyes I'd leave a hollowed out chamber where you could light a fire.

Leprechaun Remix 3X

Does everyone remember the Leprechaun sighting in Mobile, Alabama, a few years ago? Check out these remixes!

I want the gold! This one comes equipped with a monster booty-shaking riff/beat/hook.

I love this one's driving beat and trippy echoes.
