AMP – SciFi Short

10 years after leaving a war his father started, Quinn and Amp live in the slums selling illegal custom-tech just to afford the batteries that keep Amp alive. When an old childhood friend tracks him down, Quinn is confronted with the dilemma of choosing to remain idle in a city run by the corrupt Coreley Corporation or finally finish the war he never wanted to be a part of.

I love short movies like these with Robots involved, and this one looks very cool, even better then what I was expecting, its over the top and I love it! Loved the character of the Robot and the special effects and impressive for a short.

Great Mazinger 1969

I think everyone knows how Mazinger is, well at least the kids from the 80s do but he has crossed many generations and I think we are especially familiar with him in Kuwait. Now that I managed to get my hands on a Fewture Great Mazinger 1969 Model, I was very excited, for those who don’t know Fewture makes THE coolest models, and they are almost all metal and are very high quality. I have this model for sometime but I wanted to place him in the perfect spot, somewhere I would see every day and enjoy it.

It took me about 30 minutes to unbox, clean, and put him together while taking the photographs and I think in my head I was waiting for him to come alive and to become a real gigantic robot, I still have a notion that one day I will be piloting a super robot. From my previous posts I have the Senshiro Jumaro Model and Ghost In The Shell – Tachikoma which is still one of my favorites.

Trike Drifting

Full grown men riding customized trikes and drifting them around the road is something you would think a 6 year old would love, and I agree 100% . Watching this video Trike Drifting is insanely cool and looks ridiculously dangerous, there are some close moments but looking at them having fun makes me want to try it out. This video is from the guys who made the Largest Rope Swing, I hope they keep coming up with more cool stuff.

One Huge Swing

I think we have all had our fare share of large swings, but this one tops em all. Tying a rope across this ridge and swing through looks like an insane amount of fun, I keep wondering if anyone would hit the other side but everyone seems to make it through fine. I love how it was shot, the music fits perfectly, their might be other swings out there but this one is especially heart-stopping because it’s right up against the canyon. I have absolutely no idea how everyone isn’t in a hospital bed, but the Go-Pro footage makes me want to get out there and try it myself.

Liberty Walk In Japan

The Japanese are known for being organized and uniform or extreme, never in the middle, some people conform and some go the extreme. Wataru Kato is the owner of this very cool garage out of Japan that build some of the craziest exotic cars with one main purpose in mind, fun!

Matrix – Everything Is A Remix – Must Watch

Man I loved the Matrix and still do, it was a revolutionary movie when it came out and I still think so to this day. If you have any inclinations to martial arts then you will love this video, wouldn’t we all want the every type of martial arts downloaded to our cerebral cortex. This video of the Matrix fight scenes is compared with all the great Asian Martial Arts movies from Drunk Master all the way to Ghost In The Shell. What do you think about the Wachowski’s for using these techniques for their film? I think it doesn’t detract from the movie.

An Amazing Night Ride

Riding season is upon us and so we must ride, honestly there is no better feeling of that rush when you first hit the road. I tried with all my will to remain calm and collected, to take it slowly when I get back on that bike, its been a few months since I was on, to get my bearings and the feeling right, but I was TOTALLY over the top and gunned it the moment I could, I didn’t even realize I only had a quarter of the tank left. This was right after work and Tristar just brought my bike back, I just updated my playlist and was ready to ride.

I love riding the Ducati Diavel is appeases my need for top-speed horsepower and throttle-cracking torque. This really feels like an Italian bread machine, everything about it screams Ducati attitude, I especially love the color scheme of carbon fiber and red. Heading down the road I was on a high, taking corner to corner as if my life depended it on it. I tried riding a bit more sensibly but I couldn’t get the excitement out of me. I could even see other riders and how happy they were riding, there were a few idiots on the road but they couldn’t ruin my mood. I was only out riding for two hours but it was a world of time and I made the best of it. Ducati has really come along over the years and the last thing anyone thought they would do a few years ago is make a cruiser, they thought they would stick to race bred machines, but instead they built the Diavel which is stylish, powerful, and an elite enthusiast machine.

Glow Stick Art

Bon Yurt’s viral yogurt ad features a group of artists possessing blenders, paint, and 700+ glasses; they build an insane equalizer type of contraption with tons of neon glow stick goo. I would love to try this but it looks like it took a lot of preparation and planning to perfect the painting and these techniques.
