"This is not a green-screen movie," says director George Miller

Mad Max Fury Road might make you rethink your whole I’m-sick-of-redos stance on filmmaking, because this trailer looks really, really fucking cool. What it lacks in a young, pre-weirdo Mel Gibson it more than makes up for in using original director/visionary George Miller who boasted during San Diego Comic Con this past weekend that Mad Max wasn’t really […]

Your favorite film quotes are something to look at

Peter Ware, UK freelance-designer and film buff, is the man behind the movie-inspired prints at 17th and Oak .

Mexican designer Oscar Nuñez's clever shelving unit

We actually covered the the Comic Shelf by Oscar Nuñez several years ago, but back then it was just a commission piece some clever Mexican designer had come up with. Well now the Comic Shelf is seeing the light of production via Groopti, after Nuñez won their Creative Shelving Contest. A pretty clever way to […]

Celebrating Mehdi's life & work with one of our favorite mixes

Always a sad day with the passing of an artist whose work you really enjoyed, and such is the way we feel today with the reported death of DJ Mehdi (aka Mehdi Favéris-Essadi). One of our consistently favorite Ed Banger producers, we feel the best way to pay homage to Mehdi’s work is to enjoy […]
