Red Faction: The game - 1920's Edition

You've probably heard of Freeman's mind (HL2). Well, there is this guy who made the same thing except for the game Red Faction. Parker's Mind. It's pretty much a guy narrating the game as he goes through it, usually inserting some funny jokes and some editing. It's a type of machinima. Anyway, now he just released a 1920's edition. Simply amazing, check it out:…

Dieselpunk USB Typewriter

I'm going to a "hacker" open house in Philly tonite run by Hive76.



One of the products they've just released to the public is a USB typewriter that looks and acts like an old-fashioned device, but is completely digital for use with today's gadgets. Check out the video below which shows the typewriter being used as an input device for an Apple iPad. If I see one in person, I'll write a review. At this point though, I'm… Continue

Tenacious British Bullpup



What is a bull-pup you ask? It is simply a rifle with the grip and trigger assembly moved forward of the breach and magazine well. Operation is just like every other modern gas-operated rifle. It results in a shorter weapon, but not a shorter barrel length, which can degrade long distance accuracy.



And while futuristic appearing to this day, the first generation of bull-pups were birthed in the years right after World War II.



It was the late 1940s when British… Continue

Goliath City

More rivets... and some extra feelings and ideas I've tried to convey with this picture. No need to get into more explanations, I know, since your latest clever comments and intelligent appreciation largely showed you, brilliant minds, are very good at grabbing the hinted messages in my graphics.

With many thanks for…

Modern Pin-Ups

Just found this model who has a site titled: Pin-Ups for Vets. As she says on her site:

I came up with the idea to recreate a nostalgic pin-up calendar that would serve three purposes:



1. The calendars would be sold to raise funds for our hospitalized Veterans.…

Let's all go to the lobby!

Gah! Sunday already?



Someone, please stop streamlining my weekends, because they're flying by way too quickly.



In the meantime, please enjoy this week's fun - and sometimes sexy - video collection as I recover from a super fun night at the first "Dorian's Parlor" in Philadelphia.

WWII era Pin-Ups

We know that one of the iconic images of WWII was the pin-up girl. I've found a site that appears to be a great resource in images of these amazing women who did that part to raise the morale of the boys fighting.

Lord K's Garage - #41. Pictures from the Museum

Last week I've been to Vienna. The Technology Museum (not far from the famous Schoenbrunn Palace) was positively the major highlight of my short vacation. Let me share some pictures:

The hood ornament of this early-1930's Austro-Daimler is a perfect example of the 'Automotive Deco'.

Other Austrian vehicles (and there's quite a lot of them, especially bikes) are maybe less elegant, but interesting. There… Continue

Make your own Martini!

Make Your Own Martini!

It's the classic drink of the Diesel Age, synonimous with class, style, cool. No other drink can tell a story by its very name. No other drink is so easily recognizable, so evocative.

The "classic" Martini has only three ingredients: Gin or Vodka, Vermouth, garnish.

So why is it so cotton pickin' hard to get right?

The devil is, as they…

Four Barrel Fury of the Skink

Self-propelled anit-aircraft systems have remained popular in Europe since World War II. Today we have the Tunguska in the CIS and from Germany, the resilient Flakpanzer Gepard. The United States flirted with a mobile anti-aircraft platform during the 1980s with the ill-fated M247 "Sgt.York."



However, going back to World War II the Canadian military came up with a system that effectively put four 20 mm auto-loading cannons into the turret of a… Continue
