Happy New Year

Posted: December 31, 2016 in Cool stuff, General, Magazines


Might as well end 2016 with yet another fabulous magazine cover, UK publication Tattoo Life (issue) 104. I have ordered it, my copy is on the way.

There is still beauty in this world.

Happy New Year folks!


The Liberty Belle

Got to love this. UK publication Water Craft (issue) 121 presents The Liberty Belle, the smallest Paddle Steamer in Switzerland.

The GG (Guy Gene) can not resist this…


And on a lighter note, a friend of mine discovered this. A LEGO kit that features The Beatles “Yellow Submarine” (I love that film).

Now how about that?

The Dark Side

This is a nice cover. UK publication The Dark Side (issue) 174.

Well done indeed.

That 70s Show

Posted: December 30, 2016 in General, TV & Movies


That 70s Show (1998-2006) was not a bad sitcom and it did launch some promising careers, most notably for Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. A 32 DVD box titled “Complete Collection” was released in November, a nice bit of nostalgia for anybody that wants it.

Nice box art.


A sign of the times we live in. Popular Mechanics takes a look at the Prepper lifestyle in the February 2017 issue.

Good thinking.


The February 2017 issue of US publication Model Airplane News sports a rather cool shot of a Flying Fortress on the cover. The model comes from manufacturer HobbyKing and you can read more about this on their site here.

Got to love this.
