WW129: FAMOUS CARS, MOTHER'S and KING KONG SINGS!!

Howdy Ho!
I am gonna get right to it.......5 things that I love this week!!!!!

1.) These are neato posters from Jesús Prudencio. A talented graphic artist, web designer and illustrator from Badajoz, currently living in Seville, Spain. A fan of both films and cars, he took it upon himself to create these minimalist posters representing movies by the iconic vehicles within them.





Get these neat posters at http://www.carsandfilms.com/shops.html

2.) Are you in the mood for great big slice of nostalgia??????? Let me tell you about my recent trip to Hamilton to Mother's Pizza.

 Ya. You heard me. YEARS after going defunct, she's back. If you have a hankering for red gingham, and ye olde advertising......

if you are missing the simpler times, the times of faux stained glass:

....well....everything old is new again.......at Mother's!



The menu has a lot of the stuff we LOVED as kids.......pizza on metal stands....great plastic jugs of Pop Shoppe pop.......ice cream floats.............a crazy guy with a moustache......oh.....sorry - scratch that last one........

 To break with tradition.......I had this panzarotti. This part is gonna either gross you out......or make you want to go to there. It was stuffed with bacon.....and macaroni and cheese. RIDICULOUS! And soooooo bad for you........but yummy.


Next time I will have to try the 'za!!!

So....all your Southern Ontarian's........go and re-live your childhood!!!

3.) King Kong...the musical. Yup. Another shock. But just look at this....WOW!!!!:





Here is a little clip......it looks glitzy and glossy......



(or try this link - you won't regret it!!!)


oh....and did I mention the multi million dollar, one tonne, six-meter high "puppet animatronic"?? Suspended from the ceiling, Kong's limbs are manipulated on stage by 10 specially trained stage circus artists who scurry over and around the puppet, shifting his arms and legs by hand or using ropes.



um......WOW! The amazing puppeteer Sonny Tilders (who did the amazing dinosaurs of the "Walking with Dinosaurs" stage show) is one of the folks that helped create this HUGE BUDGET Specti-musi-cal!!!

So....let's go and see King Kong is at the Regent Theatre, in Melbourne, Australia!!!

4.) This is a neato thing too......artist Bill Fitzgibbons uses LEDs to creat beauty in a neglected street underpass in downtown Birmingham, Alabama.




The project is titled "Light Rails" illuminates the dark and uninviting underpass with thousands of colours encouraging pedestrian traffic in a vital connection between two growing areas of downtown Birmingham. 


SO PRETTY!

5.) Oh Buzz Feed......you continually amuse and offend me............I give you "21 Painfully Awkward Band Photos".........here is a sampling......but.....CLICK HERE to see the rest!





Thanks for this Cindy.....no....really........I cannot unsee it.........
