Russians Say Sky Dog Still Alive
Frank Sinatra sings of the stars (1943). Later, the Soviets show their stuff by sending a small, furry animal into space (1957)...

I wasn't concerned when my wife began to wear Carlos Diez's new mask accessory in private. But when she began sporting one in public, I was startled (to say the very least). Until I began to notice the stares and smiles of admiration.
But I've been considering this. It's very Hercules meets Darth Vader!

Oh darling, they're absolutely stunning! But do they come in white?

Godzilla Crime Photos
Last night, I did a Flickr search for "blue giant Marusan" and I happened upon the stunning photos of this godzilla! Along with them, I discovered a treasure trove of vinyl monsters (and vinyl toys), lovingly photographed by Geozilla (or, as he's known in the real world, George Davis).
Unfortunately, I have the displeasure to announce, the Marusan website has run clean out of giant blue Godzillas (he, he... because I just bought the last one)!
And for an extra treat, take a look at Tim Biskup's custom painted Gamagon. It's extraordinary!

These are the alive and breathing, Giger-inspired Lego Bionicle creatures of Bryce McGlone. They contain no non-Lego parts and no glue was used.

Greetings to the countless throngs of Boingboingers who've clicked on the boingboing link (all 11 or 12 of you). Yeah, that's me, wearing vintage frames from Allyn Scura. And I hope everyone does because vintage frames never go out of style and because many of them will make you feel like a character straight out of a 60's film. And this is a wonderful feeling. (I am the evil nemesis of James Bond – I will destroy the world!)

Things to Smile About
Beautiful, small things make me smile. Perhaps because, lately, it seems there's so much to not smile about. A company named Cerealart makes beautiful (though sometimes pricey) small things. Take a look... you also may find yourself smiling.

General Tibbets and an Army of Ultramen
It's multitudes of Ultramen! Browse through decades of Ultraman toys here at the ultimate Ultraman Toy Collection. Pure fun!
Wondering what gave birth to Ultraman? And why? The Little Boy exhibit companion book, edited by Takashi Murakami, is now widely available and offers a provoking explanation of what forces shaped modern Japan. If you're anything like me – if you couldn't get to New York to see the show – the book's the next best thing.
The Little Boy book is in stark contrast to Brig. Gen. Paul Tibbets' website. He's the guy who dropped the Little Boy bomb on Hiroshima. Today, he's 90 years old and still flying high. And what a remarkable web presence! Stop by if you're in the market for Enola Gay or Little Boy trinkets. That's right... trinkets. Unbelievably, he peddles souvenirs of the bomb that killed thousands. Like this scale model of the Little Boy bomb, hand signed by Tibbets himself... disturbing stuff.
