Watch the trailer for Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro’s newest sci-fi movie. There are larger-than-life monsterous creatures, massive robots, and more expoloding things than you can shake a stick at. What more do you need from a movie? You want more? Fine, I will throw in Ron Perlman.

Here’s a neat little view of how Herr’s makes their potato chips. I suppose it’s sad that so much of industry today is automated by machines. But it’s still a cool process and fun to see.
I recently came across this excellent T-shirt company, The Social Dept. They have something for the sports fan, the designer, and anyone who lives in a state contained by the United States. Which is a lot of you. social dept »

This is so great. Short 4-minute film about an Australian man who makes ships-in-a-bottle. Holy cow, what an artist, and what a humble man. Just goes to show you that you will never be too old for anything.
