Website devoted to Soviet-era arcade machines (link roundup)



Museum of Soviet arcade machines.

And a few more links:

1. Colorful dragon cake.

2. An Oompa-Loompa stars in the Crazy for Cult 3 poster.

3. I'm not really into Suckadelic's Land of the Lost figures, but Sucklord's comments about the project are pretty funny:

The Movie is gonna suck, and Will Ferrell is a total douche for making it into some stupid asshole comedy. For real. The show, as cheezy and flawed as it was, had some pretty serious Sci-fi themes going on. There was a real charm to the low budget effects and the hoakey over acting. There is for sure a lot of opportunity for comedy there. I'm not mad that it's a comedy. It just looks like a very lowbrow, typical Will Ferrell show that shows no respect for the integrity of the source material or it's fans. I hope I'm wrong, but that awful clip they showed on Conan the other night was not encouraging at all. Stupid potty humor. That's why these figures are coming out now. To act as a salve to the heartbroken fans that are being screwed by Mr. Ferrell and his bullshit, self-serving stinkeroo. Enjoy!
4. The Manhatta Project: New York as it looked before colonists.

  2. Thanks for linking to my cake, John!

    JM: Though I'm honored to be confused with Hello Naomi, we aren't the same person. Her stuff is incredible -- I even interviewed her on Dabbled once: http://www.dabbled.org/2008/09/dabbled-interview-hello-naomi.html
