Movie Title Screens

Browse and admire title and logo designs, check out movies that have completely different titles in different release prints, check out the differences in multiple releases of the same title, etc....
My favorite movie title screen is pictured below.



Polish Circus Posters

Very artistic, slanted to attract an adult more than a child and one poster on page 2 could be considered nsfw.



No Pants Day

In case you forgot, today is no pants day.



You figure it Out

A cool flash presentation entitled Musicbox, but it is not what you think.
Site takes a while to load even with broadband, but well worth the wait.



Staring all Night

I have been busy all night staring at this, can't sleep, has me hypnotized.

Please be Advised

Google Adsense is implementing some changes to their adsense program and some of the ads appearing on certain areas of Kukla's are in a "test" mode.
Things should settle down in the next day or two and the ads that will appear will be a combination of text and image ads.

Ouch

ShowMeYourWound is not a site for weak stomaches. The picture below is tame compared to what you will see; you have been warned.
If you click, you will not be flooded with wound pictures, but you do have the opportunity to go deep into the site and see the real wounds.



Strong Man Stunts

Strong man secrets revealed. Impress someone with your amazing feats of strength.



The Forehead Project

More like pictures of foreheads with little tag lines. I don't understand them though.



Someone is watching Us

Let's hope it never gets to this.

Stained Glass Sundials

Stained glass sundials can be beautiful works of art that are also functional timepieces which keep the precise time. They are that rare marriage of art and science that inspires wonder among scientists, artists, and the public most of all.



Can't be Missed

We are now seeing advertising on steps and stairs. Has anyone actually seen this yet?

Chinese Stamps

A fine collection of Chinese stamps at a French website. I do not collect stamps, but the art work is great and each stamp tells a story.



Jesus Christ

Painting of Jesus Christ on masonite going for at least $10k. Painted by Boris Vallejo, who I have never heard of. Apparently, he is well known in the fantasy field; ahh, that explains it.



15 Pounds of Meat

About 7 months ago, I posted an article about a woman eating a huge burger. It was so long ago, I can't even find it.
Yesterday, Charlie posted a story about a 10.5 lb. pound burger.
Today, we have the 15 pounder.



Design your Home

Next generation homes for modern living.



Go Back

Super photosets from old concerts. Mostly b&w pictures, but if you are 40 or so, these pictures will bring back memories.



Kids Training Bike

via cnn, Who can forget the thrill -- and terror -- of that first solo bicycle ride: Mom or Dad letting go, the magic of two-wheeled freedom and, inevitably, toppling over in a knee-scraping crash?
Three Purdue University industrial designers who tapped into memories of their own childhood cycling misadventures have built a bike that ditches the training wheels but keeps rookies stable.
Called SHIFT, it slowly transforms from a tricycle to bicycle configuration as the rider pedals faster, then returns to trike formation as the rider slows down.
Lead designer Scott Shim hopes the design, which won top honors recently at an international bicycle design competition, can help children slowly gain the skill and courage to pedal off on their own.
The design features a single front wheel and two slim rear wheels that are initially splayed outward to stabilize and prevent the rider from toppling over. As the rider accelerates and leans forward, the rear wheels shift inward, narrowing into a single wheel surface that essentially makes it a two-wheel venture.
As the bike slows, the rear wheels tilt back to the tricycle formation.



Galactic Images

To prepare you Star War fans for the release of the new movie, I give you the top 20 Galactic photos.
Side note: I have never watched a single second of any Star Wars movie. I have no idea what the movies are about.

Water Powered Clock

Half fill the right-hand tube with tap water, wait a few minutes, and the display will light up. Use the MODE and SET buttons to set the date and time and alarm function. The clock will only need topping up about every two months.



Close the lid and Flush

I don't like cats. I don't like cats using a device made for humans.
Burmese cat named 'Doogal' is seen in this combo picture as it sits on a toilet in Sydney on May 3, 2005. Doogal's owner, Jo Lapidge, invented a toilet training system for cats called the 'Litter-Kwitter.'



Draw Mickey

A little over two weeks ago, I posted Pigs are hard to Draw. Well, Mickey Mouse looks even harder to draw.



Why is Ziggy Sad

The figure on the left is some type of fish that to me resembles Ziggy.



Share the Washing

via the bbc, A Spanish designer has come up with what could be the perfect solution for the woman who feels frustrated that she has to do all the house chores.
It is a washing machine called "Your Turn", which will not let the same person use it twice in a row.
It uses fingerprint recognition technology to ensure the job of loading is not dumped on just one individual.

The BigBoy Graveyard

Some of you may be familiar with BigBoy restaurants. Check out the pics at dETROITfUNK and go back in time. Actually, BigBoy has made a comeback of sorts and is once again prospering in my part of the country.



A Lawyer's Fantasy

Gilligan's Island, a 1960s comedy, ranks among the most influential television shows of all time. Despite the fact that the last original episode aired thirty years ago, the show is more popular now than when it first appeared. Each day, reruns bring the characters back to life, and it is claimed that the show has been presented more often than any other television comedy.
Although the series has been the subject of numerous studies, its legal facets are almost never mentioned. As a result, even the show's most ardent fans are rarely mindful of just how much law appeared in the series. Accordingly, this seeks to shed some light on the jurisprudence of Gilligan's Island.



The Fruit Fly

The common fruit fly, has been used as a model organism in research for nearly a century. Today, they are used to study topics from basic developmental biology (how complex organisms form) to the genetics and biochemistry of behavior.
I bet you didn't know that.



Moss Milkshake

1 can of beer
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Several clumps garden moss
You will also need a plastic container (with lid),
a blender and a paintbrush

Find a suitable damp and shady wall on to which you can apply your moss milkshake. Paint your chosen design onto the wall (either free-hand or using a stencil). If possible try to return to the area over the following weeks to ensure that the mixture is kept moist. Soon the bits of blended moss should begin to re-couperate into a whole rooted plant – maintaining your chosen design before eventually colonising the whole area.



Staple it Online

Well, kiss the stapler good bye. No need to keep that mess of metal on your desk anymore.

Sunday Baroque

Sunday is one day of the week that most people can choose how they want to spend their day: sleeping in, gathering with family or friends for a leisurely brunch, going to worship, or relaxing alone with the Sunday paper and a steaming mug of coffee. Because it is private "down time" for many, it means an opportunity to listen to the radio with the pleasing sounds of Sunday Baroque, providing a perfect soundtrack for this unique day of the week.
As many of you know, Sunday is a no post day at Kukla's but I thought you might enjoy this on an easy Sunday morning, or any other time you need to relax a bit.
