Kidding, Starship Modeler, (I have no idea what that is?) held a contest. Dimitri Kaliviotis, won. And your asking yourself, who is Dimitri? I really don’t know, all I know is he was commissioned to make some molds and was given the “ATATRON” kit, which was never commercially available. If you want to see more pics and read more about the model process go now!
Recently in a conversation fueled by the obvious vices, it was agreed upon that a heavier, more literary voice could be beneficial for a series of movie reviews. Luckily I did not have search far, as the conversation was held with the man who would take it upon himself to fill this role. With that I present for your reading pleasure, the reviews of my old, grizzled friend Flats.
This week, No Country For Old Men.
**Enablist’s note: For those who have not seen this movie or read the book, but want to, don’t read this. If you could care less, like the most of us, go for it.
No Country. Read the book, saw the movie, had beers on both coasts. Chatted with Playboy Bunnies at the Mansion, worked with two talented directors, flirted with ex-girlfriends and told them we should bang, politely smiled and engaged diatribe with beautiful female colleagues upon my return to New York. No Country indeed.

If you live in NYC you know your apartment has been painted, oh….90,000,000,000 times. And, if the previous occupants liked dark moody color’s it’s going to cost you a penny to remedy the problem. That’s where “Aura” comes in ( and it will cost you a pretty penny as well, $52 bucks a can). This paint promises to be fully washable in any sheen, it features breakthrough ColorLock technology where pigments are microscopically bonded to dry paint film, allowing it to completely obscure dark colors in one coat, with no prime necessary. Benjamin Moore is stepping up the game with this new product and a fancy website to boot! That sure is some big talk for a paint company! Via (uncrate)
