Lately I’ve been having a lot of fun getting a bunch of t-shirt designs together for GetShirtsPrinted.com I’ve been resurrecting some old designs and creating all new ones. I’m very excited about the ability to do one offs that are quality with today’s DTG printers. I invite you to check out some of my prints below with some “how I did them” info and some obligatory general ramblings. Continue reading Having fun creating shirt designs for GSP
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
The five notes! That’s what everyone hears in their head when they think of 1977’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Yes I’m comfortable speaking for all humanity… wouldn’t be the first time 😉 This movie is one of my all time favorites for so many reasons other than it’s another chance to play “spot Lance Henriksen” which you all know is one of my favorite pastimes. Continue reading Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Oblivion starring the completely sane Tom Cruise
First off, Tom Cruise is certifiably crazy in my humble opinion (yeah, I write that crap out because I’m not lazy). That aside, I like this movie. It’s a cool little sci-fi movie that’s got a very bleak feel almost reminiscent of a “stuck in a haunted house” type of horror film for the first half of it. Continue reading Oblivion starring the completely sane Tom Cruise
Able to literally see alien life within 40 years?
According to Lord Martin Rees, president of the Royal Society, with the advancements in technology at the current rates, it is not unreasonable that we will be able to litterally see alien worlds close up in the not too distant future. According to the astronomer by as early as 2025 he suspects the human race will have the ability to view planets close up outside our solar system and that if there is life we might just be able to detect it. Continue reading Able to literally see alien life within 40 years?
OK, I’m going to talk about “Prometheus” as if it has nothing to do with the “Alien” quadrilogy. Similar to how I feel about “Alien 3“, if this movie is looked at as a stand alone movie, it is pretty good. Continue reading Prometheus
In 1986 alien movies were taken to a new level. James Cameron’s “Aliens” is a masterpiece that in my eyes blows away the original. Blasphemy you say? Maybe. They’re really two totally different movies. “Alien” is more a man in a rubber suit monster movie where as “Aliens” is more of a military vs. alien infestation movie. Continue reading Aliens
The 90’s brought an invasion of alien films that were quite worthy of notice. “The Arrival ” is one of them. Long before Charlie Sheen was “winning“, he was actually a good actor… if you needed someone to act like a paranoid douche. Continue reading The Arrival
Star Wars Episode IV “A New Hope”
Well, what can I say. I saw Star Wars when it first came out in the theaters in 1977. I actually was one of the few people who was aware of this film coming out. I used to read Starlog and magazines like that as all good little nerds do. I also used to go down to NYC with my mom every once in a while and we found several B&W promo photos for sale on the street, no doubt bootleg. Continue reading Star Wars Episode IV “A New Hope”
