Google Maps has added a new feature, allowing you to not only stare at a city location from space, but have a look at street level. How neat for those of you who haven’t been to New York (one of a handful of cities that have been fully documented for the feature)!
Modeled and molded by Boss Studios, this is one of the miniature doors designed for the scale-sized rooftop temple in Ghostbusters. And I love staring at it (need to make it a stand.) Click here for a closer look at the door details.
Nearly sixty-seven years ago, Norbert Grupe was born to a Germany at war. Three years ago, with little to his name other than his dog and van, he died of cancer in Mexico. Between those two points he was Der Boxprinz (The Boxing Prince.)
We’re more familiar with him as Vigo the Carpathian in Ghostbusters 2 (or, for us older folks, a hapless terrorist in Die Hard), but the man was also an infamous boxer in the 60s and 70s. Not only was he a notable pugalist, he was also a bit of a party animal, leading to some minor scandal involving drugs and prostitution. All of this is covered in this 2002 documentary on the man we know as Wilhelm von Homburg.
If anyone is in Germany or any other European country were you may be able to find this DVD, please contact me.
Anybody remember Jade and her homemade wooden dolls? I do, only because the post I made about her is so old, the image that used to accompany it is long, long gone, as were the original links.
How awesome it is to stumble upon her Deviant Art account, with pictures of her original Egon and a Garrett she made later. No pics of Ray, Peter, and Winston, but lots of other dolls she’s made. Perhaps she’ll post them soon.
