Pen Phone

Don't you wish you had a pen that was as fat and heavy as a cell phone? Don't you wish you had a cell phone with no keypad? Now you can have both. This is just about the most horrible UI for dialing a phone number that I can imagine!

"Siemens goes small with the new PenPhone, the first ever tri-band mobile phone housed in the unusual shape of a pen and offering all the features of a standard mobile phone. The 140mm (5.6") long PenPhone recognizes handwriting for dialing numbers and writing text messages directly into the mobile phone -- no matter what surface you write on."

DNA Lounge: Wherein you go "wow, look at all those keys."

Photos are up of Exodus + Hail Satan, and Flavor.

We recently added two new shows to the calendar:

We're thinking that the preparations we had to make for the Incredibly Strange Wrestling shows will be a dry run for GWAR. But GWAR is a lot more wet.

Casey has started on a new art project, pictured to the right, to go along with the Wall Of Lost License Shame (which is growing quite nicely, thank you.)

What she's holding is, I think, 1/3rd of the keys that we've found here in the last year or so.

The collected stack of abandoned cell phones was pretty impressive, too. Those got donated to a women's shelter.

Zeppelins Rule The Skies

Meet the Homeland Security Terror Blimp:
The U.S. Missile Defense Agency recently dished out $40 million to Lockheed Martin to design what could soon be the world's largest pilotless airship. It measures 500 feet long, with a volume of 5.2 million cubic feet.

Parked 12 miles up, it will be immune to most ground-launched missiles, and its onboard sensor systems will "see" at least 350 miles in any direction, allowing it to spy most incoming military threats. A fleet of 10, says the MDA, could provide an early-warning curtain for the continental United States.

The helium airship will generate enough electricity from thin-film photovoltaic solar cells to power the engines and generate at least 10kW for the payload.

The Jack Chick movie is out!


Jack Chick Publications' DVD debut, The Light of the World, is a series of paintings strung together under voiceover narration, similar to a Ken Burns documentary. It's a hodgepodge of Biblical and Chick comic book storylines, presented in lurid color and jarring voiceover. The movie is creepy and obviously aimed at elementary school children; imagine Mr. Rogers reading Slayer lyrics.

The first chapter is a goofy retelling of Genesis. Adam is nondescript; Eve is an idealized 50s housewife, all round, rosy-cheeked and pleasantly vacant. Satan is a rainbow-colored snakeman who could work nights as a comic book villain. Eve gets Vampirella's eyebrows after she eats the plum-tomato-like fruit of evil.

After that, Satan controls the world. [...]
