Cut It Out: The Silhouette Art of Jordan Monsell

Another post relating to when I was a little kid growing up in the 60’s… it wasn’t unusual to see small framed  silhouettes in houses.  Folks could get them done of their family members or other people/things and they were pretty cool looking.

 Recently the Hero Complex Gallery had a showing called Cut It Out: The Silhouette Art of Jordan Monsell. Mr. Monsell creates silhouettes of pop culture icons from movies and television.  The pieces are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Will “Lost in Space” Ever Get Its Props

Will Lost in Space Ever Get Its Props by Charlie Jane Anders is an interesting look back at one of my favorite shows when I was a little kid.

I think that one of the reasons that Lost In Space doesn’t get its props is that over the course of the series it just became too campy… although as Anders points out the Batman series was equally as campy and is now revered.  Perhaps the difference is that the Batman  series was always camp and Lost In Space slide down that slope after starting out as a more serious adventure series.

15 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines”

Mental_Floss posted 15 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines by Sean Hutchinson.  Here are three of my favorites from the list…

1. ARNOLD CAME BACK—BUT AT A PRICE …

Arnold Schwarzenegger was paid $29.25 million to star in T3.

11. THE PRODUCTION CREATED AN ENTIRE STREET FOR ONE SCENE …

Several city blocks used during the crane chase sequence were created because the production needed a level of destruction that wouldn’t be possible on a real street.

12. … AND SCHWARZENEGGER FOOTED PART OF THE BILL.

During the crane chase sequence, The Terminator—hanging from the crane—swings through an entire building façade. The studio didn’t want to foot the bill for the sequence, so Arnold Schwarzenegger put up his own money to complete the scene.
