Happy Friday everyone. Hope you all are able to get out there and enjoy that fabulous weather we’re having. Well, at least in my part of the world. I’ve got more randomness for you this week so without further adeiu….here’s the Goodie Wrap.
So first, there was the guy that built that rockin’ X-Wing fighter box car that I featured a few weeks ago. Now we have a guy who’s building a hoverbike. It’s not quite as agile (at least in looks) as the bikes in Return of the Jedi, but it’s still pretty cool. Good on him for giving it a go. You can check out his website for more pictures and you can also donate if you’re so inclined. I’m pretty sure I’d end up a mangled mess if I tried to operate one of these things.

Neon Movie Ads
I consider movie posters an art form. Well, at least I used to….when they were actually, you know, art. Know a days they’re just mass-produced Photoshop jobbers that the studios push out with little to no creativity behind them at all. Artists like Drew Struzan are no long called upon to make awesome works of art. And then I saw this. This guy, named Mr. Whaite has a tumblr page with a bunch of these neon movie ads and they’re all pretty frakkin’ sweet. Something like this would totally catch my eye if I were to see it in a poster box at my local theater. (via Movies.com via Geekologie)
I love Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and I also love the Starry Night-ish exploding TARDIS painting that was done for Dr. Who. But this…..this seems almost fitting in a way. Have a look at Starry Mordor. (via blastr)
For some reason that I’m not aware of David Hasselhoff has achieved an immeasurable level of fame. It’s been my theory that he sold his soul, but it’s just a theory. I have a strange fascination with him. Not in the crazy stalker way, but in the trying-to-understand way. I will admit to playing the crap out of one of his CD’s when I managed a record store just to torture my staff. But this is just…..not right. Behold….the Hoffsicle. Apparently, it’s for National Ice Cream Month. I can totally get behind the event…..just not this particular product. It’s kind of….I don’t know…..creepy. (via That’s Nerdalicious)
A couple of my friends on Facebook posted this video and it made me laugh. There isn’t a Whole Foods in my area, but this could also probably apply to Trader Joe’s as well.
Wow….that Spiderman musical just can’t catch a break. What with the injuries and revamps and shutdowns and a change in director. Who would have thought that a Broadway musical about an iconic superhero, with music by Bono and The Edge would be such an effort to get going. It’s total fodder for spoofs though and Sesame Street has even gotten their jab in with this video.
