Today’s Tom Sawyer, He Gets High On You

December 16th, 2010 by frankie23

Oh, man, now this is the way I want to spend my post-zombie-apocalypse days… Gently sailing down the river, clockin’ zombies in the head from the safety of my giant fucking boat. Make sure you click on the image to see this thing in it’s full, grand beauty. The SS Huckleberry, winner of the 2010 Zombie Safe House Competition, (I didn’t even know such a thing existed!) is secure, has it’s own food production facilities, and is powered by diesel fuel made from decomposing undead! I mean, how wonderful is that? You stay alive, healthy, and your carbon footprint is vastly reduced! There is absolutely nothing I don’t like about that.

The basic plot of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, in the style of E.C. Segar, creator of Popeye. Pure win. (Click to embiggen).

Pirate-Themed PC Accessories

January 23rd, 2008 by frankie23

I know the pirate thing is about done to death right now, happily making way for sweet, sweet steampunk to rise in its place in the hipster underground, but these johnny-come-lately speakers still manage to get my heart all a-flutter with coolness.

I mean, really, you can see how badass they are, yes? I especially love the eerie inner blue glow. Frankly, I’m a sucker for things that glow blue, but what can you do? I’d feel the need to mod them up a bit, make them look more like religio-magical artifacts than just plain ol’ skulls, but they’re still pretty damn cool. Even better, there’s a matching webcam!

I’m really loving the webcam. It looks more like a piece of background scenery for someone’s tropical fishtank, but there’s something Sailor Jerry about it that I love, a slightly camp feel to it. Plus, that skeleton on the far right looks hella pissed off with the snaketail around his neck. Unfortunately, these pretty little items are out of my price range for aesthetically pleasing yet horribly impractical PC accessories, but feel free to pick yourself up a pair. Feel even more free to get two, and send one set to me. ;)
