Egg Static

I am now the proud owner of a rather large Alien egg from the set of Ridley Scott's Prometheus thanks to Andrew Martin International via Leigh Morrison. Here's hoping it stays shut!

Click here for the photos I took inside the Prometheus spaceship at Andrew Martin International a couple of years back.

I Met the Walrus



In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrators James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack. Thanks to Cris Roberts for the heads up!

A superb remix of one of my desert island favourites. Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' by Psychemagik, the UK duo known for their sensational remixes. Thanks to Gordy Goudie for the heads up! I also discovered this beautiful portrait of Stevie Nicks online, but as usual, no photo credit attached to it. If anyone can enlighten me, it would be most appreciated. Video animation by 18bis.

Steranko writ Large

Jim Steranko's Nick Fury Agent of SHIELD: Artist's Edition

This morning I was wondering why I was drinking my coffee with an aching left arm and then I remembered lugging this HUMONGOUS book home from my friendly neighbourhood Orbital shop yesterday. I don't regret it one bit though, in fact I still can't quite take in just how awesome this book is. You can get an idea of the kind of scale we're talking here, by comparing it to the regular comic I've placed next to it. The pages inside are absolutely stunning, and you can see the way Jim Steranko developed his style from the first collaborations with Jack Kirby through to his solo outings, honing his considerable skills with each issue. Graphic!

Arctic Circle Radio

Covered!

Now that is an interesting cover design. Plus, I happen to like Cameron Diaz, ever since I saw her in Vanilla Sky. As for Stephen King, here's a shot I took of him back in '83.

Jaime Sommers

From my cuttings file and the 1970s, a lovely (uncredited) portrait of Lindsay Wagner. I wish I'd written the date and name of the magazine on it in retrospect, though it's most likely from somewhere between 1976 and 1978, which is when The Bionic Woman aired. I'm loving that typestyle!
