Kubrick or not to brick

Si pentru ca e luna cadourilor, am primit unul (cadou) neasteptat, sub forma setului A (Ozzy, Comedian, Owl) de la Watchmen Kubrick (medicom). Setul B (Manhattan, Rorch, Silk) sunt in drum spre setul A, adicatelea spre mine. Da, sunt geniale si le recomand iubitorilor de Watchmen cat si celor de comics in general. Bine, fie.. si celorlalti care probabil don't give a shh..toy. Enjoy!

It's rainig ...DC Comics Barbie Superhero Dolls

click pt big pic.

Desi nu sunt niste variante Deluxe, papusile (editie DC Comics Collectors) de la Mattel fac o impresie buna per ansamblu. Ca sa citez un (site) clasic: Barbie goes Super with DC Comics! Nu stiu daca am reusit sa le adun pe toate, dar majoritatea sunt gasibile pe amazon (no shipping to Romania also!). Accesoriile si clothing-ul sunt destul de bine realizate, avand in vedere ca blonda de Barbie s-a cam dat in barci cu toalele ei de bimbo ...pana de curand si probabil de aici inainte. Lansate in 2008 (de ce asa traziu?) super-Barbie-urile au facut victime in deosebi printre fanii si colectionarii de figurine cu super-eroi si mult mai putin in target-ul initial. Desi Super-Woman, Super-Girl si poate Bat-Woman ar atrage orice fetita de 5-8 ani, celelate personaje sunt putin mai dubioase si necesita un background mai complex: Harely Quinn, Elektra, Poison Ivy, Cat-Woman, Invisible Woman, Black Canary. Over all, toata povestea asta feminista e super! Desi nu sunt tocmai convins ca majoritatea varinatelor feminine ale super-eroilor actuali au vreo noima, tin sa mentionez ca e ok sa iti placa Barbie. De Craciun, de DC Comics, DeLuxe.

Jos e noul sus... etc

Azi a aparut si continuarea episodului de miercurea trecuta. Da.. au legatura. Anyhow, enjoy

Corleone looks great in December

Totul a inceput prin vara cu o simpla comanda facuta la un furnizor din USA. Comanda cu pricina: Don Vito Corleone by Hot Toys
- Stands approximately 12 inches / 31cm tall, true to 1/6th scale
- Use of Hot Toys TrueType figure with over 32 points of articulation
- Dresses with real fabric, movie accurate black couture
- Comes with accessories including the famous chair, his cat and a glass.
- Includes two sets interchangeable hands and one hand for holding the glass.
- Features amazing head sculpt with authentic likeness of Marlon Brando as Don Vito Corleone

Deasemeni, pachetul de la Hot Toys mai contine si celebrul colt din biroul Nasului sub forma unei diorame. Loc unde il poti aseza pe faimosul scaun tapitat cu piele, cu un pahar de vin in mana si cu pisica in poala. Eh, nu mare lucru.. Anyhow, revenind la comanda: dupa doua luni cad la invoiala cu furnizorul ca pachetul este pierdut, banii sunt returnati, clientul dezamagit...dar nu fara speranta. Gasesc un alt furnizor (incadrandu-ma in bugetul initial) de data asta din Honk Kong (tara Hot Toys). Nu este nevoie sa mai spun cate luni au trecut si cata dezamagire s-a mai asternut intre timp. Pachetul numarul 2 este declarat pierdut si totul pare ca desprins din Zona Crepusculara. Don Vito Corleone nu vrea sa ajunga in Romania. (cine naibii vrea, pana la urma?) Totusi, dupa 6 luni de asteptare, un colet urias, cantarind aproape 4 kilograme ajunge (intr-o stare foarte buna, culmea) in bratele mele. L-am desfacut cu grija si teama (ca voi gasi doar pisica lui Don)... si am descoperit o adevarata comoara Hot Toys. Packagingul este uluitor, figurina depaseste orice asteptare iar diorama face toti banii. In bookletul din cutia doi (ce contine diorama) am gasit descrierea unei echipe de peste 10 oameni (minunati) ce au lucrat la acest proiect si niste beauty shots ce par luate din filmul original. Atasez postarii pozele minunatiei si va las sa visati cu ochii deschisi la vremuri mai bune, la oameni de calitate, servicii postale, brigada anti-drog de la vama, alegeri prezidentiale, mafie si pisici complice.
PS: Andrei, marti ai intalnire cu Don Vito Corleone. Please be careful! He's fragile!

In caz ca sunteti fani Dilbert si va mai plac si figurinele, de sarbatori, la un pret mai mult decat special (ask me if you care) Mr. D si restul personajelor principale va asteapta in cutia lor (cubicle like). Oferta este valabila doar pana la 30 noiembrie, dupa care nu-mi mai pasa de voi. Asta la vista baby!

I, (love) Robot

“Lopid(ROPID)” robot was created by Tomotaka Takahashi from Robo Garage at Kyoto University. The cuteness itself comes in small size, 38cm (high) and weight of 1,600g. It's able to respond to voice commands and speak with its mouth. ROPID is also able to walk, run and jump more faster than other similar constructed robots. And let's not forget the fact that is DAMN CUTE!

Up and Down sunt Sus (nu Jos)

Cu ajutorul celor de la, Up and Down au re-aparut cu brio in peisajul internaut.. ba chiar au invatat o boaba de romana! Noua lor garsoniera arata foarte bine si e intr-o zona artistica departe de traficul pornografic, pirateresc sau gsp-ist. Monitoarele mele sunt multumite de rezultat si va recomanda o rezolutie decenta. Recunosc...sunt ciudati daaar imi place look-ul lor romanesc (cred ca am luat-o razna) si cred ca lipsa nu le-a deteriorat nici un pic originalitatea sau simtul umorului. Ramane de vazut (si citit) in continuare...
Pana atunci, abonati-va de zor pe webcomics; baietii din spatele sitului sunt niste entuziasti incurabili. Ceea ce v-ar prinde numai bine.

Shit has never been so close (to my face)

Daca citesti asta si nu ai habar despre ce dracu' vorbesc, rogu-te las-o balta si cauta-ti alt colt de net pe unde sa casti ochii. Pentru cei ce asteptau partea 2 (sau 3) a apocalipsei dupa Vodafone... revin la ceas de seara cu ochii tulburi (de la citit si recitit mailul recent primit) si cu vesti care mai de care mai tulburatoare pentru specia humanoida. Asadar: raspunsul la reclamatia mea (venit prompt, dupa 30 de zile lucratoare) de la echipa(razitii) vodafone sosit azi la ora 6.66 AM incepe clasic cu o multumire retardata si continua cu niste termeni dictati de un avocat surdo-mut. Dupa ce m-am acomodat cu limbajul semi-complex si abstract pe alocuri am ajuns aici: (citez, ce mama dracului)

"Domnule Dogaru, conform paragrafului 6 alineatul 2 din contractul semnat de dumneavoastra si Vodafone Romania SA, “In cazul in care Clientul nu plateste la timp suma facturata, Vodafone Romania poate deconecta/suspenda Clientul de la serviciile Vodafone”. Actualmente, numarul dumneavoastra de telefon 0731.335.*** este deconectat datorita intarzierii achitarii datoriei fata de Vodafone Romania SA." *

Incerc sa imi revin din pumnul invizibil al destinului si ma rezem cu precautie de spatarul scaunului meu (deloc confortabil dar de un design cuceritor). Citesc restul aberatiilor cu frica, reintorcandu-ma din cand in cand la numele Dogaru ce mi se invarte cu tot cu cap in jurul schelet calare pe un cal in flacari. Scheletul sufla intr-o trambita uriasa: "Numarul format nu este alocat...". Este oare domnul Dogaru unul din milioanele de oameni din care se produce Soylent Red? Ce mama dracului e astaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?????????????????????????!!!!
Astept mai bine de o luna pentru a primi un raspuns la reclamatiile mele si nici macar numele nu l-au nimerit? Oare chiar sunt ultimul pe scara evolutiva a reclamantilor din Romania? Raspunsul este lipsit de importanta. La fel si restul scrisorii de la nazistii vodafone. Mi se explica pret de 5 paragrafe (adica pana la finalul scrisorii) cum pot sa imi reziliez singur abonamentul. Adicatelea cum sa platesc (in fel si chip) suma de 150 euro si sa imi vad linistit de viata (conform contractului cu Satan). Daca nici acum nu ati inteles o iota... este exact cum trebuie!

Partea doua a povestii vine pe scurt cam asa: factura de pe luna asta este dubla (un fel de razbunare de pe urma reclamatiilor poate) asa ca am cerut explicatii. Explicatiile au venit in fel si chip de la vreo doi acoliti. Partea amuzanta este ca de fiecare data cand sun, trebuie sa povestesc circa 20 -30 de minute tot istoricul mizeriei, ca sa poata intelege (oricine) despre ce dracului vorbesc. Aaaa.. nu! Nu asta e partea amuzanta... ci faptul ca se pierd pe la jumatate (casca.. se foiesc) si tot nu inteleg despre ce vorbesc si mai ales... ce vreau! (rad singur acum; mi-e mila de mine. imi revin) Asadar, ce am invatat azi copii? Ca nu tot ce e rosu se mananca? Mmm.. si asta, dar ceea ce este mai important suna asa: Cacatul care nu se duce ori e prea usor ori este un telefon cu abonament vodafone.

What a dick!

La Luvru... nu mai e nevoie sa faci mustati la portrete si putze la personajele dramatice. Pare-se ca sunt deja acolo, sub niste straturi de vopsea. Restauratorii autohtoni au descoperit intr-o lucrare de-a lui Poussin un ditamai falusul camuflat sub culoarea oficiala a tabloului Falus ce apartinea lui Priapus, of course. Banuiala se indreapta cu repeziciune catre biserica impotenta din acele vremuri, ce ar fi ordonat sa se acopere jucaria zeului din te-miri-ce-motive. Faptele fiind consumate nu ne mai ramane decat sa tragem concluzia: Never try to hide something that's bigger than you!

sursa aici!

Morning as you mean it

E 11.46 si am primit ca oferta de shimb pt. laptopul meu Sony o masina (Daewoo-Lanos - 70 CP) iar cineva cu care am facut cunostinta mi-a spus ca a auzit numai lucruri frumoase despre mine. Pentru "pana in doishpe" cred ca stau foarte bine...

Friday's syndorme


(cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy)

No specific treatment is available, of course!

Health makes me sick!

I have to order this right away. I just love books that have "kill" in the title. Besides, it's practical too and i can quote: "Oh, my ribs hurt, I have costochondritis!"

Oh, Hi.

I don't think there's anyone who didn't see this (famous) funny picture of the little bug who waves "Hi". There's something in it that makes me laugh anytime i see it. Well, i decided that i can make more of it turning it into a comic strip. Let's say once a week. Ok? Good! There's the first episode:

Microsoft it's oKKK! (part two)

Oh, the possibility!
