I just learned of this car. It's the 1948 Buick Streamliner. According to one site it was designed by Norman E. Timbs, which took him more than 2 years and $10.000 to complete. The body is all aluminum and was designed by Emil Diedt.
The car is powered by a 1948 Buick V8 with a maximum speed of 120
US Marines had the stout K-Bar and SOE-OSS wielded the delicately deadly Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife during World War II. Knives in war-time 1940s took on a variety of shapes and sizes.

Not much time left but there's a really great issue of Life Magazine: "Our Finest Hour," It's only on sale for a short time longer (6/10/2010). It's full of great photos and accounts not only from war but a lot from the homefront. I just bought my copy Sunday and I highly recommend it.
The Deadly Nightshade Botanical society has produced a second labor of love. Accoutrements and Oddities features driving guitar, lush orchestral sounds, stirring vocals, an airship monkey ballad, the story of what the cooger and dark circus were doing before they took up carnival and a sad tale of what happens when a mad scientists wife gets tired of regret.

On Miskatonic Mondays, we celebrate the "weird" fiction of HP Lovecraft and the genre of otherworldly horror that it spawned.
This week, we look into the deep well of horrors that is Lovecraft-based motion pictures. While 9 out of 10 Lovecraft "inspired" films are absolute SyFy Original Picture, straight-to-video shit, there are brave men and women fighting the good fight. These are the…
Yup, she did it again. This time on national television, the Today show. Her opening piece, in my opinion, could be labeled dieselpunk in that it had strong decodence air to it with it's big band style yet she certainly added her own punk spin to it.
Might she actually know about dieselpunk and be into it?

A&R (or Artist Relations) guys and gals are some of…
My time inside Hive76 with Jack Zylkin's USB Keyboard
Three right turns past the Ben Franklin Bridge entering Philadelphia, you’ll find yourself in a rough neighborhood filled with people who know how to do a lot with very little. At the heart of this block, atop the Spring Garden Arts Building, is a group of young geniuses and mad scientists pushing their skills and imagination to the limit. When these men are asked why they do what they do, the answer is a resounding “why…
