So the painter had the biblical folk on the radio while he was working in our office today.

Can I get a hail Jeebus, ya’ll?

Chicago’s Stern Pinball - the Only REAL One on the Planet

Inside one of the last pinball factories in the world

Inside one of the last pinball factories in the world

As I walked into Stern Pinball’s modest facility in Melrose Park, Illinois shortly before Christmas last year, a loud buzzer went off. Dozens of workers streamed past, heading toward a catering cart stationed nearby. It’s break time.

This is all that remains of an amusement empire in Chicago last century, an empire that included brands like Williams, Bally, Gottlieb, and Midway, among others. It’s an empire that helped build the arcade era. Apart from Stern, everyone else has long since left the pinball business — or gone out of business altogether.

Be warned — the linked article is full of hi-res images. They’re gorgeous but will hog your browser while loading. Anyways, I have a handful of memories of being in the arcade, playing Space Invaders while my Dad worked the flippers on the pinball machines. It’d be awesome-spectacular if Stern had tours.

Man of Steel statue shows new Superman costume

Take a new look at the brand new superman costume worn by Henry Cavill in ‘Man of Steel’, courtesy of this DC comics statue. Doesn’t he look moody?

His undies were red, not blue. And what’s up with that lizard skin?

The Photos That Inspired Norman Rockwell’s Paintings

The Photos That Inspired Norman Rockwell’s Paintings

A prolific artist, Rockwell produced over 4,000 original works in his lifetime. What some people may be unaware of is that Rockwell meticulously composed photographs that he used as part of his artistic process to create his famous paintings and illustrations.

The sailor looks a smidgen more pleasant in the photo on the left.

Many of the photos linked article come from the The Norman Rockwell Museum. If you poke around there, be sure to check out Heroes & Villains: The Comic Book Art of Alex Ross.

Somehow over the course of the last week, I bought the same comic book twice.

The past and the future of famous logos

We review the history and imagine how Apple and other famous logos will look like in the future.

Of course the Pepsi logo above is my favorite.

That "1955" Motorola logo is on the back of my phone. It's always reminded me of Madonna.

Fucking Robots Playing the Ace of Spades

tcr! · Jan 14, 2013 at 8:25 pm

Yes in the video clip are real robots that are really playing the Ace of Spades! I love the headbanging and body movements. Stickboy with four arms on drums, Fingers with 78 fingers playing guitar and Bones on bass. Collectively they make up Compressorhead.

Fingers from Compressorhead

Check out the covers TNT, Blitzkrieg Bop, and Becoming on YouTube for more 6 tonne metal band goodness. Official site: compressorheadband.com.

Final thought: I wonder if they could get Stephen Hawking on vocals?

Saw this a while back and wondered if they duplicated the Lemmy mole as well.

Keep Java Disabled Says Homeland Security

Keep Java Disabled Says Homeland Security

Homeland Security warns Java still poses risks after security fix

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has reiterated its warning to Java users that the widely used Web plug-in still poses risks for Internet users, even after Oracle patched the software to prevent hackers from exploiting a zero-day vulnerability.

It comes as some security experts are warning that the new software — Java 7 (Update 11), which was released on Sunday — may not actually protect against hackers attempting to remotely execute code on user machines.

I’ve hated Java ever since I first read this:

Both version numbers 1.5.0 and 5.0 are used to identify this release of the Java 2 Platform Standard Edition.

Still no idea if it was 1.5 or 5.0 or 2.
