"From the Vintage Ads group, this 1970s ad for the Six Million Dollar Man action figure, with his bionic eye and many awesome accessories. This is the first birthday present I remember receiving, in 1977, when I was six, and it became a kind of holiest-of-holies between me and my best friend across the street, a toy that we played with until every single component had been destroyed. Not shown here is the space-capsule, which was so insanely badass."

Here's a little video showing what happened before Alexandra Thomas and Scott Jones had their iconic kiss in the midst of the Vancouver riot -- basically, the Vancouver PD laid an unprovoked beating on Thomas and Jones gave her a kiss to comfort her as she lay groaning on the road.

The subject of Wednesday night's "Daily Show" brought out an interesting new talent in Jon Stewart, aside from his already impeccable talent for finding hypocrisy...
This is a quick overview of the terrifying Stuxnet computer virus, which was used to disable Iran’s controversial nuclear facility last year.

Haxan/Witchcraft Through the Ages (1922, dir. Benjamin Christensen) (film online here)
“Officially banned outside of Sweden for decades due to graphic imagery and an unabashed anti-clerical theme, Häxan has grown into a cinema legend one hears about but rarely, if ever, gets a chance to actually see. Is it true that it displays witches cavorting naked with lusty devils? Is a baby really drained of blood before it’s tossed into a stew pot? What’s this about women lining up to kiss Satan’s bulbous ass? Inquisitional torture? Flying on broomsticks? Hysterical nuns? Sacrilege and perversion? Demonic orgies? Otherworldly monstrosities emerging from between an old crone’s legs? And it’s a documentary? It’s all true.”

Two weeks ago we had our first show in the SUMMER 7' SERIES on the Glassworks rooftop with The Bad Reeds and Workers with a free 7' record to everyone at the door. It was a great night despite the looming rain that kept a lot of folks home, and it got new music from local bands onto some sexy yellow vinyl.
This series is supposed to have a show every month through the summer with the next one on JUNE 24th on the Glassworks Rooftop with Second Story Man and Adventure. It is an ambitious series, maybe too ambitious, that celebrates local music as well as the timeless art of Vinyl, and for just $10 a show you get both. Unfortunately vinyl costs a fortune as well as playing at such a unique venue such as Glassworks, and after several financial hits I fear we may not be able to continue. But, I am not giving up, as I never have, and I am asking you to please give and in supporting local music and spreading the word about this Unique and exciting project.
We are asking for you to help by pre-ordering tickets to this series so that we can pay for the next round of vinyl, and in exchange we are cutting the price and giving away a ton of extras.
By pre-ordering your ticket for the 6/24 show w/Adventure+Second Story Man for just $10 you will get the limited edition 7' from both bands as well as the Bad Reeds+Workers 7'.
tickets are also avialable for the Scott Carney band+Deloreans show on 8/19 or the Gallery Singers+Whistle Peak show on 9/16 for just $8 each.
Or for just $25 you can get a season pass for all three shows/7's as well as 2 more 7's, that's 3 shows and five 7's for only $25. it's an unbeatable deal. Please help us by telling your friends about this project!
Season Pass: $25 (for the 3 remaining events at the glassworks rooftop). 21+. comes with a season pass and poster, at the door of first show. order now and receive an additional two 7"s, the workers/bad reeds 7" and the gallery singers/another7astronauts 7" from last summer. that's 5 records and 3 events for just $25! note: must be at event to get 7", we cannot set aside records.
