It took Brent Musser two years to build! and with an old Chevy engine, it boasts upwards of 350hp… Oddly enough, there’s a lot of these monster buggies out there!.. Well, a lot more than you would expect anyway. It took a bit of digging on YouTube to find the actual Musser’s model:
It’s double or nothing for Christopher Nolan… Well quadruple or nothing I suppose. After rebooting and refurbishing the Batman movie franchise, hitting a homer with all three at bats, Nolan has taken on Superman.
Given the fanboyism that comes with anything of comic origin and the inconsistent level of quality fans have had to endure with the superhero film genre in recent years, Nolan’s success with all three Dark Knights has always felt to me to be extremely fortunate… Can he capture that magic a fourth time with The Man of Steel?
Sure, why not? It won’t be easy though. Here, Nolan discusses with Clevver Movies why creating a Superman flick is more challenging than the Batman instalments:
On this day in 1916 the Mad Monk himself, the ultimate Russian lady killer Grigory Efimovich Rasputin was murdered. Typically, right around here, would dive in to a dry and vaguely engaging history of Rasputin, but instead let’s keep things a little more relaxed… This is especially hard for me because I love Rasputin.
Nevertheless, let us indulge on this the awkward weekend between Christmas and New Years, and on this the anniversary of the death of a very hairy and presumably stinky faith healing hobo called G.E. Rasputin, with the soothing sounds of Boney M:
SIDE NOTE: This is apparently also an early example of green-screening… Clearly still a work in progress:
Commander Kevin Ford and Flight Engineers Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn of the International Space Station’s Expedition 34 crew send down their best wishes for a happy new year.
Clearly they had trouble deciding where to put the Christmas Tree this year. How many spots do you think they tried before they settled on this.
I’m not afraid of sharks… Never have been. I guess I’m just really good at compartmentalizing things, so when I swim in the ocean I rarely think of the things I know or have seen about ocean wildlife and assume I’m safe. Malls on the other hand have me on edge the entire time I’m in one; never really sure why… Until now… This is why, I’m sure of it…
Here’s a little piece of tastiness straight from the New York Times and some guy that says he knows Larry David… his name’s like Gerald, or Hank or Carrie or something:
This is a two-parter actually, because from the same story I have a scribblish yellow notepad draft of a genuine Seinfeld PopTart observational joke. It’s no Ovaltine, but I think it’s a real knee-slapper:
… but wait… There’s more! If you haven’t seen Seinfeld’s new web series (well, new in July) called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee check out episode one below… For the rest of the season head to the YouTube channel or find it on Crackle.
