Spinning Bird Kick!

...that's what she says, right?

Smallville's Kristin Kreuk to be lightning legged Chun Li in the newest Street Fighter movie in oh-nine. This should be the peak of all your female video game character fantasies come true.

Directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak (Speed, Romeo Must Die, Thirteen Days), this Street Fighter story surrounds Chun Li and her "quest for justice".

Now, we're all left to wonder which outfit they'll put Kristin in.

Handbags to lug into combat!

Sundae Best is a collection of handbags by Wisconsin designer and artist James Piatt. Born in San Diego California, his influence of Southern Californian Conceptual Art is seen of his many works of furniture, lighting, and in particular, his handbag collection. (Yeah being a male, I know I'm not the target market, but the military/combat designs were just too awesome for me to not take notice!)

The Pursuader (purse-suader! get it?!) is a sub-machine gun shaped laser shaped leather purse complete with a cell phone holder in the clip. For those who like to live life like a battle, they're available in silver or pink.

Knock people out with "The Peacekeeper 300", a handbag with brass knuckles for a handle. Its available in multiple colors and materials, and guaranteed to make you rule the streets.

For those not into weapons here's something a little more morbid! "Tinkerbell" is inspired by Paris Hilton's denied dog of the same name addressing the issue of carrying a small dog as a fashion accessory. Unfortunately, as of this writing, these puppies are sold out.

Finally, there is the less intimidating but just as fashionable "Chesterton", which combines the best of old and new style and technology.

Ladies ready for war will immediately report to James Piatt/Sundae Best. Dismissed!

Home for the Holidays.

Sorry for the lack of updates on my part. It has been a busy and tough quarter. It's all G though... I'm back home in SD to catch up on sleep and laziness.

A while back, I received a package from Enna (remember? Kami-Robo?) that contained an issue of QUANTO magazine; Japan's top selling magazine for toy model kit and hobby enthusiasts. To my suprise, They included a tiny photo of me with Yasui san in the insert the magazine did on the San Diego Comic-Con.

(Yeah, that's what I look like. My cover is blown. Don't come after me in the streets, ya punks.)

When I got home, mom left me some mail on my desk...

Fall 2007 issue of THEME magazine.

(In case you can't read the text on the left side, that hat is a large bra. Throw some D's on that _____!)

Also on my desk, a copy of Staple's 10th Anniversary look book featuring models Sakiko Ann Sugano and Maria Ozawa. I'm not gonna link them here, so google them yourself. Photos by Yonehara himself. He is awesome.

Cheap stuff for sale at Commissary (SD). This shop is always killin' it.

Gonna eat some Popeyes then go back to sleep. Should be up around 11:30 AM - Noon.

Batmobile Lost a Wheel . . .

and a press release photo of Heath Ledger as the Joker can now be seen on the web, HEY!

Yes, it's true. That guy from 10 Things I Hate About You who is also one half of the infamous gay cowboy duo will be donning the iconic green hair, purple suit, and white make-up that Jack Nicholson made look oh-so-sinister nearly 18 years ago.

Truth be told, no one can play the Joker like Mr. Nicholson, but I suppose we should give ol' Heath Cliff a chance. I mean, if Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale (::sigh::) got a chance to reincarnate the Dark Knight after Michael Keaton (and hell, Adam West), why not someone do the Joker?

Whether Ledger did the role any justice will remain to be seen until The Dark Knight's release in July 2008.


The Dark Knight

Hmmm . . . what do you guys think????

Giving H.O.P.E.
