    Right now I'm halfway through the original Flash Gordon serial from 1936 starring Buster Crabbe and Jean Rogers.

    Art Nouveau Loft Bed?

    There are 3 examples of beds in the Jean Lahor book: There are plenty of other types of Nouveau furniture out there though, and I think for your particular project you'd gather more inspiration from them than other beds out there since you're doing something "lofty," so to speak. The...

    What Are You Reading

    Some of the last batch of books that recently found their way to me (haven't yet dived into most of them though.): Basilisk by N.M. Browne Evening's Empire by David Herter Great Adaptations: Making Older Buildings Into Dynamic Homes for Today by Jill Herbers Great Houses on a...

    Art Nouveau Loft Bed?

    My two favorite books on the subject (and they do make good companion books): Art Nouveau By Joan Lahor ISBN: 978-1840138917 Art Nouveau: Utopia: Reconciling the Irreconcilable (Taschen's 25th Anniversary Special Edition) by Klaus-Jurgen Sembach ISBN: 978-3822830062 Here is one I saw in...

    I'd like to thank The Conductor and StaceFace for bringing Fleet Foxes to my attention.

    Music renders a good film into a great one?

    While not a vintage example by any means, I have always felt that the musical score by Basil Pouldouris for the Conan movies made those films far more watchable than they would have been without his score. I wrote many a paper in college while listening to those soundtracks in particular, as...

    What are you wearing today??

    Over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house I went. And it was the perfect occasion to wear my new Swiss Wool Military jacket. Though, not the best view of it in particular.

    What was the last TV show you watched?

    Yeah, Harry has taken the place of the "dark passenger" from the Dexter novels. (though he did use the phrase 'dark passenger' this season) I expect the series to even deviate further from the novels as it goes on, as the last novel took on more of a supernatural tone. Though, one...

    What was the last TV show you watched?

    I've been on a UK comedy binge with the works of Matt Berry, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, Julian Barratt, and Richard Ayoade for the holidays. So far I've gone through Snuff Box, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, AD/BC: A Rock Opera, The IT Crowd (yay new episode today), and The Mighty Boosh...

    "Doctor Who," He's Back and it's About Time!

    Personally, I'm still hoping James Nesbitt gets the role. He would make a awesome Doctor. P.S. If you haven't seen James Nesbitt's work before, check out these two scenes from Jekyll (Also by Steven Moffat): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wahKlUZyk-M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7R2NhgEeg0

    What are you listening to?

    Listening to two albums this morning, José González's In Our Nature album and Nomo's Ghost Rock album. Later I will probably listen to Matt Berry's Opium album again. Because its become my favorite album ever. Sadly, can't find much in the way of a youtube video example there.

    Jaxon Bogart

    I have the Jaxon Bogart in "grey" (though its more darker blue/brownish grey than it appeared in the website picture. Really, it seems to change tone of color quite a bit depending on the light.) and I like it a lot. Admittedly, I am not a hat expert, but its certainly the nicest hat I...

    K-20 (Looks a bit like the Japanese version of The Shadow)

    There is a movie coming out in Japan that some of you might find interesting. It's called K-20 and is set in 1949. The title character is a bit of a villainous Robin Hood type character, and the story involves a acrobat who is framed as the identity of K-20. You can view two trailers...

    Show Us Your OVERCOATS

    That is a great greatcoat, Ukali. (And I really like the hat you wear with it too.) It looks very similar in style to my 1955 Belgian great coat.
