Get a custom Monster by Mail

May 22nd, 2009 No comments

We’re all a little vain.  Me more than most.  So the chance to get something customized just for you is always a good thing.  Mass customization is what is going to save musicians when the record companies all fail.  So I encourage you all to go and check out this neato site:  Monsters by Mail.


For mere $25, Len will draw you a customized monster based on a name that you send him.  For $35, he’ll send you a link to a YouTube video that shows him drawing your customized monster.

This year the theme is Supervillains.  Send him the crazy ass nickname you had in college (unless it was something like Captain Ass) and see what he turns it into.  Or better yet, pick a name for your dad and get him a unique Father’s Day gift rather than that blue Brooks Brothers tie (boring!).

Last year’s theme was Zombies.  I sent in a request for a Tai Chi Zombie and this is what I got:

Philips Cinema 21:9 LCD TV shows true movie format

April 28th, 2009 No comments

I absolutely hate hate hate hate those black bars above/below my movies when I watch at home. The whole point of getting a big screen LCD or plasma TV is to replicate the movie experience. You don’t see those silly bars in the theatres now do you? Well Philips hears your pain. And they have produced this gorgeous beauty.

Philips Cinema 21:9

Philips Cinema 21:9

This is the Philips Cinema 21:9 LCD TV. It is the first truly cinematic screen tv, meaning that it reproduces exactly the screen dimensions of your local cineplex. It is full HD, meaning 2560×1080, not this 1920×1200 junk you’re used to in the standard 16:9 format. It is also equipped with Philips’ Ambilight technology to set the proper mood when you’re watching your porn…er I mean art flick. Built in cable tuners capable of showing 1080p signals. Wi-Fi enabled, so you can watch Hulu and YouTube and the like. DLNA certified, so you can stream video from your PC. Man, with this baby, why would you ever leave your couch?

Downsides? Unfortunately, only available in Europe. Black bars on the sides instead of the top/bottom when you’re watching TV. And not out yet. Oh well – I’ll have to pick one up for the pad in Barcelona next time I’m on the Continent….
