My Neatorama blogging pall John Farrier tweeted about a photo of Ricardo Montalbán in The Wrath of Khan earlier this week, but it was the above photo that caught my eye. TV and movies from the '70s and '80s? Yes!

Tim Doyle’s solo art show Unreal Estate is debuting at Spoke Art on Feb. 2, with Doyle "playing tour guide to his favorite TV locales, from Moe's Tavern to the Bluth Banana Stand to the Seinfeld diner." Doyle's work has great detail and feel for place, so this should be a great show.
"Homicidal Psycho Alien Symbiote is a Peter and Venom collection. The title refers to a sub-plot in the series involving Venom’s tendency to surprise Peter and try to eat his brains, leading Peter to make the titular exclamation."

At least Behold, White Trash is what I think Carl's banner says. My Latin (*cough* Google Translate) is a little rusty. Seems appropriate.

"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I'm going to boldly go to find the tribbles that ate my friend and destroy them. Anyone who wants to join me is more than welcome."
"I've taken it upon myself to expose the sad truth about Wonkaland; the stuff they won't show you in the movies. An Oompa-Loopma had fallen and drowned in the chocolate river during the night, and Mr. Wonka has delayed the start of his tour in order to conduct a body recovery operation. It's dark work, but at least it's not being conducted in dark chocolate. This isn't the first time an Oompa-Loompa has perished on the job site, and what becomes of their inevitably oversweetened remains has never been discovered."
