Zelda in Real Life Part II


Mission Report: Spartacus In Real Life

For our latest mission we staged the iconic “I am Spartacus!” scene from Spartacus in a Manhattan Starbucks. I ordered a drink and gave the name “Spartacus.” When the barista called the name, a group of 20 men stood up one-by-one proclaiming to be Spartacus. The real punchline arrived at the end, when a man dressed as a Roman slave arrived to claim the beverage. The scene was produced without the knowledge of the Starbucks.

Full Story.


Lego Batman and Robin, Joker’s Funhouse

Welcome to The Joker’s Funhouse. This Lego creation is loosely based on several of the Batman Video Game Funhouses. The Funhouse is built with three “levels” to allow for three separate Batman and Robin scenes. I built the Funhouse over a two month period and debuted it at Brickcon 2013 in Seattle. The automation is powered with Lego Power Function Motors. The lighting is from IKEA.

The Poor Batman of Rio City

The Poor Batman of Rio City 570x379 SR Geek Picks: Professor X Fires Nightcrawler, Black Friday Chaos, Poor Batman & More

The Argentine photography collective M.A.F.I.A. (Movimiento Argentino de Fotógrafxs Independientes Autoconvocadxs) posted a gallery of Batman in his down-and-out period.

Bruce Wayne Do Santos. Ex-millonario. Ex-propietario de latifúndios subterráneos. Ex-superamigo. Removido, desalojado, desterrado, vagando por Rio City.
Una cruda mezcla de performance, comics y arte callejero.

Bruce Wayne Do Santos. Ex-millionaire. Ex-owner of underground estates. Ex-superfriend. Dismissed, homeless, landless. Wandering the city of Rio. A raw mixture of performance, comics, and street art.

(Translation by zompist.)

There are many more pictures in the gallery at Facebook.

The Matters of Grey blog has four Imperial Star Wars snowflake diagrams that are basic enough for the most novice of crafters and children. The patterns are even drafted to include the Imperial logo in the center of each snowflake.

Rebel Alliance loyalists, here’s a snowflake for you as well.
