The Micheal Lau (sometimes known as Crazy Smiles) Garden(palm)er collection continues. You may remember last installment from this past Spring, created in conjunction with How2Work toys. The third Garden(Palm)er Series finally shipped in late December after having preorders booked back since Summer. Each 10-piece set of 1/12th-scaled articulated figures went for $650, the toy figurines standing at about 18cm and having 16 […]


Hong Kong toy-artist Michael Lau has teamed up with manufacturer How2work to bring a new series of figures from Lau’s Gardenergala universe. World class toymaker Lau has been re-inventing the gardener universe since 1999, his first line being that which would inspire the vinyl-toy movement throughout the world. It would take some time before his toys could be […]

Dead or Alive, you're coming with me

Gotta admit it, I was a bit skeptical about the Robocop reboot when first images leaked online. And the first trailer wasn’t that hot, either. But Watching ED209 strut down an Afghani street with empire overtones sure does promise a bit of thought behind the inevitable gunplay. “Why is America so robo-phobic?” Hmmm… good question Sam […]


A return to form of sorts for MGMT. Great song, great video. Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden are keeping it experimental on their self-titled 3rd album, and they certainly seem content on keeping their mega-hit Kids days in the rearview. Sure we’d all like to hear another “Time To Pretend”, but as long as they […]

From the talented minds of Cormac McCarthy & Ridley Scott

We posted the first teaser trailer for The Counselor back in June — the upcoming thriller written by the peerless Cormac McCarthy (he of The Road and No Country For Old Men) and directed by the occasionally great but spotty Ridley Scott. The Counselor is notable as it’s McCarthy’s first spec screenplay, which means he wrote […]


In our humble opinions, one of the most slept on emcees worthy of superstar status is Killer Mike. Sure the ATL rapper gets his share of shine, but not nearly enough. After last year’s R.A.P. Music, Killer Mike has once again teamed up with the great El-P for another album of socially scorching lyrics and […]


Remember when we talked about spending a day on the famous Paul Ricard Circuit with a 740 horsepower, $600,000 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive? Well this is the complete story of taking the Fastest EV in the world on a ex-Formula One track… The feeling is surreal. Does not compute. Syntax error. I’m already […]

What a party at James Franco's house is really like

We posted the First Look Trailer of the This Is The End film late last year, and now a new trailer for Machinima showing a little more of the plot has been released. While the cast of the film is pretty ridiculous, and the meta film-within-a-film pretext very postmodern for a typical football to the groin […]
