Movie Stills, Warehouses and Vampires in Space

Here's a few tidbits from the past day:

  • I've been flipping through Eugene Kuo's photos of the production of a film called Fishkill. The photos are good, but I find them even more interesting since they are from a movie I know absolutely nothing about, and have no conception of the plot.
  • I love this photo of a warehouse in Minneapolis by Joe Cunningham.
  • While stumbling around IMDB--I was wondering exactly how many vampire movies Udo Kier has appeared in--I found out that he will be appearing in a sure to be awful vampires in space movie called Dracula 3000. For pure badness, I'm sure this flick will rival Jason X and Leprechaun 4 (which both took their respective franchises into space) in terms of pure craptacular filmmaking, especially with a stellar cast that includes Coolio, Erika Eleniak and Casper Van Dien.
  • I'm currently enjoying ONoffON, the new album from Mission of Burma. It's like they never broke up.

21 Degrees of Separation, Flavor, Paydays and Artillery

For a lunchtime, here's a few morsels:

  • Like a lot of people out there, I 've been having fun with the Band to Band Links page, which you can use to prove that while there is no link between Big Black and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and that you can get from Big Black to Fleetwood Mac in 21 steps. It's also kind of amazing to discover how many of the paths between bands involve Whitesnake. Whitesnake!
  • Mo Rocca and Flavor Flav, together at last. Well, at least I'm assuming that is Flavor Flav, it's been a long time since I've seen anything of Public Enemy.
  • Been caught chewing! A woman gets arrested for eating a Payday bar in a metro station. See also: the little girl who got arrested for eating french fries on the metro several years ago.
  • Saint Barbara, the Patron Saint of Artillery.

Maybe Some Snakeheads Will Eat Steve Perry

It's been quite a long time since I've used the miscellany category, so I figure I'll dust thing thing off.

  • Over the past few years in the D.C. area, the snakehead fish has garnered quite a lot of headlines, and the newfound fame of the snakehead has lead to no less than three horror movies: Snakehead Terror, Night of the Snakehead Fish, and Swarm of the Snakehead.
  • For all the fans of arena rock out there: there's now a cruise that allows you to hobnob with Journey, Styx and REO Speedwagon. It may only be a weeklong cruise, but you'll get your money's worth, cuz it'll feel like a lifetime. [via New Yorkish]
  • I know I've plugged it to friends before, but I don't think I've ever mentioned Roark Johnson's Stranger a Day project here before. For every day of this year, Roark is posting a photograph of a stranger taken with a large format camera. The photos are fantastic. Go take a look at it now! Now!

Camden Yards

Here's a panorama of Camden Yards from my seat at the Orioles/Giants game I went to last month. Yes, I did get to see Barry Bonds hit a home run, and Rafael Palmeiro also hit two. Unfortunately, the Orioles blew multiple opportunities to hold onto the lead, and finally lost in extra innings.

The 4th of July

I took some photos of the 4th of July weekend, here's a small gallery of them.

Also, if you haven't been seen these photos from Eugene Kuo's trip to Lebanon, Syria and Jordan, you really need to get over there and take a look at them right now.

In These Woods

The last time I was in Wyoming, it was wet and rainy most of the time, which is quite different than the usual conditions. The forest near our cabin can be pretty dank to begin with, even in the normally dry summer months, but that summer, it was exceptionally dark and gloomy in the woods.
