On work.

In order to save myself the trouble of ranting and raving about how work’s been day in and day out, I figure I’d share this instead, it describes things all too perfectly, and much quicker than I could have written it out:

War Macheen – The Costume

Posted in Comics, Funny Stuff with tags , , on May 18, 2010 by joeylabartunek

Scanning my morning news, I came across this video of a guy who has built a scary good recreation of the War Machine suit, complete with closing visor and spinning useless gattling gun.  From PopSci.com:

Anthony Le, 25, has been a fan of Iron Man since he was a kid, but when he heard that the comic-book superhero was hitting the big screen in 2008, he was inspired to build his own Iron Man suit. That version was more of a costume, but his new one, finished just in time for the movie’s sequel, edges much closer to the real thing. With its dent-proof exterior, motorized faceplate and spinning mock Gatling gun, his take on the movie’s War Machine suit could easily frighten a supervillain.
Le, a fitness consultant, studied some concept sketches of the suit posted on the Internet. He used thin, high-impact urethane for the armor, cutting it into plates and joining them with some 1,500 rivets and washers. He sculpted a clay helmet mold and then used a liquid resin mix to create the final product. But that was just cosmetic work. He also added a small servo motor that opens the faceplate, as in the movie, and built a gun out of pipes and a motor. LEDs in the eyes and chest-plate further add to the illusion.
Le plans to wear the suit to the movie and already has quite a following, especially at sci-fi conventions. “I’m kind of hard to miss,” he says.

Now if it were *my* creepy molester van, Strange would be holding Clea in his arms atop a pyramid.

Thanks to The Beat for this silliness.

 

Stuff I want For Early Birthday Presents Pt. 1

Posted in Funny Stuff with tags on November 11, 2009 by joeylabartunek

No time like a week early to start hinting at birthday presents, seeing as how I get old as fuck next week.  First up, a lawn Jawa that’s just so cute it hurts:

Now if they just made a planter in the shape of a sand crawler I would be set.
