“Obama-wan Barackenobi, you’re our only hope!”

November 4th, 2008 by frankie23

Don’t get me wrong, I am so fucking pleased that Obama won, but frankly I think this was the coolest thing of the evening. Holographic projection communication! In full colour too, better than the tech they had in Star Wars!

Happy Hallowe’en everyone! Here’s to hoping the dead don’t come back tonight, I’ve got a party to attend!

I mean, it’s pretty obvious why this is awesome, right? I don’t think I really need to go into details here. I must say though, I’d love to have been on the scene when this picture was taken. Too geeky for words, yet so awesome it hurts a little.

“Are you a girl? Is it Hallowe’en?”

October 26th, 2008 by frankie23

This wonderful video basically shows the reality behind my yearly issues with Hallowe’en costumes marketed to women.

That being said, Sexy 1900s Steel Conglomerate Tycoon is awesome.

“The taste of her cherry chapstick…”

I want to hate this song, but I can’t. It’s just so fun! And I must say, Miss Katy Perry is a very lovely woman. I hope she manages to be more than a one-hit wonder, but if not, at least we’ll all have this song to remind us when drunken bi-curiosity became mainstream.

Oneechanbara Movie Trailer

April 1st, 2008 by frankie23


Okay, lessee. Cute asian girls in cowboy hats, schoolgirl outfits, and skintight leather? Check. Said girls wielding big glowy swords or dual-fisted handguns? Check? Massive zombie massacreing? Check. Okay ladies and gents, I think we have a winner!

Oneechanbara is a movie based on a series of low-budget Japanese games which concentrate on too-hot-to-be-real women wearing strategically unsound outfits, who slaughter horde upon horde of zombies. Looks like there’ll finally be a video game movie which stays close to it’s source.

Betty Boop Vs. Dracula

January 23rd, 2008 by frankie23

Now here’s a bizarre little rarity. Back in the 1930s, Paramount pictures made a ton of little shorts under the blanket title of Hollywood On Parade, using a wide variety of actors, some famous stars, some not so much. The Three Stooges got their start in these films with Ted Healy, and some earlier Marx Brothers shorts were also part of the line. This is probably one of the weirdest ones I’ve seen though. Mae Questel, the voice of Olive Oyl for many years, was also the original Betty Boop. This short features her in a rare live performance as the lovely Miss Boop, singing a song to a pair of manly mannequins. Things are going swimmingly when suddenly Bela Lugosi shows up as the Count! With the chilling words, “Betty, you have booped your last boop,” some 1930s vampire-style necking occurs and, well, you get the picture.

The Machine Girl

December 12th, 2007 by frankie23

Sit down, my friends, I’m going to tell you a story about The Future. 2008 is just around the corner, and there’s a lot of movies that will be coming out, not just in North America, but all across the world. I’m very excited about some of these films. But today, this morning, I found a movie that I’m more excited about than any other film. This movie is truly the definition of that overused marketing term. “instant cult classic”.

I give you the trailer for Japan’s latest affront to taste, Machine Girl. I haven’t seen this much blood and gore in a movie trailer. Ever. Arms lopped off, heads severed, faces peeled away to reveal sinew and bone. Saucy stuff, indeed. I’m not thinking anyone is going to say this is the most original movie; the machine gun/chainsaw arm is an explicit call to Evil Dead/Planet Terror. But, hot schoolgirl amputee with a gatling gun arm! Finger food, throwing stars, flying guillotines, drill bras and stumps! Just watch the damn trailer, and remember, when you hear about this whacked out noise from your friends, Frankie already showed ya.

What a sweet tattoo, eh? Nothing like great comic book tattoos on cute young ladies, no indeed.

Power Girl Gets A Day Job

Oh, I do love me some Power Girl, and this is perfect. Good, funny acting, a great costume, and the always amusing premise of “superheroes in the real world”. I love it.

Science Needs Your Help!

October 10th, 2007 by frankie23

One of my favourite neuroscience bloggers, Miss Shelley Batts, is currently one of twenty individuals competing for a $10,000 Student Blogger Scholarship. Now, I think this girl is hella smart, and is working her way toward a PhD which will inevitably help all of mankind, so I’d like to see her win. What does this have to do with you, and why aren’t I wearing any pants, you might ask? Two good questions! Unfortunately for you, I can only answer one of them! To win the scholarship, Shelly needs VOTES. So, follow the linky-poo, and vote for Shelly Batts. She’s currently in second place, so your vote will make a difference, unlike in your typical government election. What are you waiting for!

Vote for Shelly right here! Science will thank you!

Barbie in Wonderland

July 20th, 2007 by frankie23

Barbie as Alice

Now, this is just freaky. From Alice, of the wonderful Wonderland blog, we get this Alice in Wonderland doll, by way of Barbie. Look at those eyes, halfway between a traditional Barbie and the over-exaggerated, anime-y Bratz dolls. I do like the dress though, that Gothic Lolita retro-Victorian feel. As Alice says, very harajuku. I think the Cheshire Cat is staring up her camisole though. Now, you ask yourself, we have Barbie, what about Ken? Yes, my child… What about Ken?

Ken as the Mad Hatter

Apparently, “Ken” is now an old woman with a taste for overtly large head wear. Really kids, what the hell is going on here? Barbie is an interesting, if unexpected, blending of the imagery of both universes. This, this is just bizarre. I can’t stop staring at his freakish, old woman face, the sad, world-weary gaze of longing. This Ken knows he’s not getting any tail any time soon, unless it’s cottontail, and he’s just not happy about it. Apparently, they’re bringing out a Red Queen as well; I’m crossing my fingers for Skipper.

Clara Bow looking disheveled

Clara Bow looking dishevelled

Sneaking around the LiveJournal, I stumbled upon this lovely looking photo of a very disheveled looking Clara Bow, the It girl of the 1920’s. While the post involved says she was trying to be a scorching seductress, I prefer to think of her as a little goofy on something, being photographed candidly. The post-romp hairdo, that crooked little grin, and the upwardly raised eyes all convey a humour and immediacy that you just can’t fake. However, it should be remembered that Miss Bow was amazingly adept at the art of pantomime; it is, of course, the quality that brought her such success in the age of silent film. Such a beautiful girl, such a strong actress. It’d be amazing to see what she could do nowadays.
