Batman Teaser Poster - ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ /Film

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Teaser Poster | /Film:
The questions: is Gotham being destroyed or rebuilt? Is that debris falling or, as the title suggests, rising?

I got the point of the poster on the second look, which is excellent. The effect is subtle.

Top 5 Gig Poster Artists: Austin Town Hall +

Friday Top 5: Gig Poster Artists | Austin Town Hall:
"As the designer and occasional poster artist for Austin Town Hall, I’ve always had a love affair with well-done gig posters. Since I’m about to get ready to do my third (cant believe we’ve been doing it for 3 years now) ATH SXSW poster and it’s that time of year when every bulletin board and lamppost is plastered with them, I figured it would be a great opportunity to talk about my favorite poster artists. This list is totally subjective, so it’s all based on my personal taste. When your done reading, go support them. Buy their posters, frame them and put them up on your wall."

"What I love most about experiencing new cultures & places, is the fact that it is a constant reminder of how beautifully ignorant one always is. Travelling also serves as a tool of self discovery, one is able to figure out things about his self that he never would have otherwise noticed at all before. You can view a top selection of my favourite travel shots here."

1950s and '60s drug exploitation movie posters tackle sex and drugs |

Poster madness on the Main:
Dave Rosen collects and sells vintage movie posters, 18 of which are on display at Blue Sunshine on St. Laurent Blvd. until July 31. "I put this together because I thought this is something nobody has ever done before," Rosen said.
"Thrills That Kill: Morals and Movie Posters - on the walls of the Blue Sunshine film centre on St. Laurent Blvd. (Montreal) - provides an entertaining glimpse into the fascinating netherworld of what were known as 'cautionary tale' exploitation movies. From the earliest days of American cinema, filmmakers would make movies about sex, drugs and later rock 'n' roll, designed, in theory, to warn viewers of the evils of these things.

The 18 vintage posters in the show belong to Dave Rosen, the former CBC Radio traffic reporter and current Montreal Mirror cartoonist."

"I put this together because I thought this is something nobody has ever done before," said Rosen. "To show specifically this kind of exploitation poster, for the cautionary tale films. It's a sub-genre. Reefer Madness is probably the one that set the pattern for cautionary-tale films. The whole idea is that things are shown on the screen that are forbidden, but it's okay to show them because you're teaching people that they shouldn't be doing this stuff. That's how these producers got around the Production Code. They could show drug use and sexual situations, but it had to be an educational experience. Everyone had to get their comeuppance at the end of the movie."
The Production Code was instituted to try to keep any illicit activity out of American movies and, by the 1930s, filmmakers, mostly independent producers, began churning out these pictures. Most of the posters in Thrills That Kill are from the 1950s and 1960s - for movies like the rock 'n' roll cult fave High School Confidential and Synanon, a drama starring Edmond O'Brien as a reformed alcoholic who starts up a rehab facility.

Dragon Shield Deck Protectors review : There Be Dragons! | The Hobby Blog

There Be Dragons! The Hobby Blog:
In a slight detour from the normal toy soldier theme, I thought I’d share my experiences about card protectors. Card what I hear you say!?!

Well, Warmachine uses trading card sized stat cards. On these damage (and other things) are marked off during the game. Great, except you will want to use this stat cards for more than one game.

The obvious solution to this is to encase the card in clear plastic and use a drywipe marker to mark off damage so the cards can be reused.

NZ Gig Poster: The great Prince Tui Teka |

The great Prince Tui Teka |
Prince Tui Teka Live In NZ

"One of the best presents I have ever been given is a print of a Prince Tui Teka gig poster; my parents gave it to me as a gift for finishing my university degree - roughly a decade after I started it. But that part's not important to the story.

It's framed now. It hangs in the hallway of our home. Not the degree. That has coffee stains and cigarette burns on it (no, really) and will never be put to use. No, I mean the Tui Teka print. It's framed and has pride of place outside our study; near the front door. I pass it every day and it reminds me of Tui - a hero of mine.

Prince Tui Teka learned his craft/earned his stripes working with The Maori Volcanics and other showbands of the time. He was born Tui Teka and took on 'Prince' as part of his stage-name; a royalty bestowed upon him. Elvis was the King, so he wanted to be (New Zealand's) Prince. Another stage name was Tui Latui - he performed in bands, The Royal Samoans and Maoris and Prince Tui Latui & The Maori Troubadours."

fictional Australian Interior Authority? Posters in Brisbane: Signs cause online buzz

What is the Australian Interior Authority? Signs cause online buzz:
Bus shelter
"The recent emergence of signs, billboards and online ads outlining the fictional decrees of the futuristic Australian Interior Authority have internet forums abuzz with speculation over what it's all about.

It's a classic case of “discovery marketing”, according to Simon Dell of Brisbane marketing company TwoCents, where online communities try to home in on just what the campaign is selling. And once they figure it out, they'll be more likely to buy it.

“When you discover those things it's like being part of a secret club,” he said.

“Nobody else is part of the secret club because you've taken the steps to get in. It's that exclusivity. The irony is they are doing it in a massive way on billboards and things.

“Apple use it quite a lot. They want people to feel like they are part of an exclusive club, even though everyone has an iPhone.”"
