Lord K's Garage - #46. PORSCHE TYPE 64

One more chapter of the Streamline Story, short but important. You can name it Porsche Typ 64. Or KdF 64K10. Or Volkswagen Aerocoupe.

The car is powered by a 1948 Buick V8 with a maximum speed of 120

Smash & Cleave! The Faibairn Smatchet!

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. Some were delicate single edged designed for utility and killing. Others straight up double edged life takers. There were slender pig stickers, lapel blades or in one case, a fat bladed weapon designed to intimidate, cleave, hack and kill.

In the history of special operations and close… Continue

Rather than highlight one dame at a time, let's try two at a time.

There's more than enough dames to go around, so check out our complete gallery with more info on these lovely ladies in the Photos…

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.

Miskatonic Mondays - The Call of Cthulhu movie

Miskatonic University Lights out, everybody.

On Miskatonic Mondays, we celebrate the "weird" fiction of HP Lovecraft and the genre of otherworldly horror that it spawned.

Lady Gaga Goes Dieselpunk ... Again!

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?

Note: I've edited my comments…

Zoot Suit Riot: The Death of the Swing Revival (Part 5 of 5)

Zoot Suit Riot: The Death of the Swing Revival (Part 5 of 5)
By Wolfgang Parker

Now, while it may seem that I am pinning the blame of the movement’s failure on the bands of the time, I am not. The Music Industry was half of the problem. The half that no artist had any control over.
