  • Never mind. I saw a few episodes. They should have spent a bit less effort on extras and behind the scenes clips and a bit more on a decent screenplay and acting lessons.
  • I guess one of the definitive Atompunk movies was Forbidden Planet. I tried to recreate the Krell Lab as best I could. http://i646.photobucket.com/albums/uu183/ProfErasmus/KrellLab1-1.jpg
  • (Quote) Love it! Atompunk!
  • Found a couple of other books from the John C. Winston company that used that same endpaper. They also had a cool logo. One that I'm sure Sci Fi fans of a certain age will remember fondly. http://i646.photobucket.com/albums/uu183/ProfErasmus/Winston…
  • Someone posted this picture a week or so ago. It was the endpaper for a series of juvenile science fiction books I used to read as a kid. A guy name Alex Schomburg designed it. I know for sure that it was on a book called "The World At Bay"…
  • (Quote) As long as they have power to close it up. I somehow doubt you could close those giant concrete blocks manually. And what if you shut yourself up in there and then lost power? How would you get out?
  • Right on, La Femme. That was the picture I modeled it from. Always thought that door was a quintessential icon of Art Nouveau. Little things like the fact that the stepped circles are not concentric. They converge at the bottom. Just perfect asymmet…
  • Hello, all. Haven't posted in an age, but I thought this image might be interesting to some. Found the picture of this marvelous Art Nouveau door online and just had to model it. It kind of grew from there into this thing that I call "The Night…
  • Great article on why retro-looking cars are the future. http://www.thecoolhunter.net/article/detail/1716/why-cars-from-the-past-are-the-way-of-the-future
  • He's brilliant!
  • Here is a Dieselpunk take on Iron Man as well as one on Black Widow by an artist named Mike Kungl. http://i646.photobucket.com/albums/uu183/ProfErasmus/IronMan.jpg http://i646.photobucket.com/albums/uu183/ProfErasmus/BlackWidow.jpg
  • Viewed from this angle they look a bit like Da Vinci wings.
  • I don't think that's a sun dial. Its either an armillary sphere or an orrery (spelling?) I always get those two mixed up. At any rate they should be set straight as well. This has a very "Time Machine" feel. Maybe it was knocked akimbo whe…
  • Well, here's number three. A great actor who fought for civil rights and was just an all round cool guy. He will be missed. http://www.latimes.com/news/obituaries/la-me-robert-culp25-2010mar25,0,7406812.story
  • And now today the worst news EVER. Davy Crockett is dead. Only those of us of a certain age can truly appreciate this, but when I was an elementary schooler, Fess Parker was like Elvis! Well maybe Roy Rogers was like Elvis but we wouldn't see anothe…
  • As chance would have it, many years ago I was working for a brief time at Shepperton Studios. They were shooting The Keep there at that time. The movie wasn't much but in those pre-CG days it was great fun to see the enormous sets and amazing props.…
  • I wish they'd gone this route at Disneyland instead of making it a Finding Nemo ride. The Nautilus themed ride they used to have here and in Florida was pretty cool but TDS has taken it to a much higher level. If I ever get back to Japan I've got to…
  • An update http://i646.photobucket.com/albums/uu183/ProfErasmus/FortuneFavorstheBrave.jpg
  • If one of these pictures makes it past the talking stage, we should start one.
  • Partially because of the success of this film's opening weekend there are now about four projects floating around Hollywood to either remake or re-envision The Wizard of Oz. Yet another reason to realize how important people like James Cameron are. …
  • I thinking of adding Tarzan/Conan-esque Tomb Raider type guy climbing in one of the windows.
  • I wonder why the color is that light brown. I know the models at Imagineering were a dark greenish grey.
  • I saw Avatar in several different theatres with different 3D systems and different glasses. The one for the IMAX theatre were (strangely enough) the worst because they were the smallest. I could see around the edge of the 3D glasses. Weird that the …
  • Maybe the treasure at the bottom of frame.
  • Maybe you'll have better glasses over there. Those of us who wear prescription glasses all day are at a disadvantage in this 3D wave. Wearing two sets of glasses is even dorkier than wearing the old red green cardboard 3D specs. I predict that if th…
  • This is pretty much my take on it as well. www.thisisbrandx.com/2010/03/back-in-the-zone-andy-kleins-take-on-tim-burtons-alice-in-wonderland.html
  • Alice in Wonderland opening weekend grosses topped Avatar. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/entertainmentnewsbuzz/2010/03/1-alice-in-wonderland-disney-opened-to-1163-million-domestically-and-94-million-overseas-in-40-territories2-brooklyn.html Its …
  • I saw it yesterday and you aren't missing much. I had high hopes for this movie but, alas, it leaves much to be desired. If you do go, I would recommend the 2D version as the 3D one I saw was very dark. The glasses knock down the light level by a lo…
  • Here is a link to Michael Kutsche's website showing some of his original conceptual designs for characters in Alice In Wonderland among others. Great stuff and interesting to see that the original concept for the Mad Hatter was quite Steampunk. He i…
