Things We Saw Today: Brosie the Riveter Could Hang on Your Wall, Too

If you liked the story of how Brosie the Riveter came to be, you can now buy his poster (along with his distaff counterpart) from WeLoveFine. It’s up to you to decide which of your walls can actually handle him. He’s a bit too much for our front page, even, so I’ve, uh, cropped him.

This Up house is an engagement ring box. Your argument is invalid. (Fashionably Geek)

Still have a soft spot for the old Ms. Marvel costume? Well, you’ll have to wear it yourself, because she’s moved on. (Fashionably Geek)

    Apparently in addition to the little known D&D sequel “Wrath of the Dragon God” there is also another sequel (triquel?). The “Book of Vile Darkness.”

    I like Simon Pegg taking the haters down a…. oh peg I guess… about the lens flare business.

    “It demonstrates JJ’s supreme talent as a film maker that the main means of knocking him is to magnify a throw away artistic choice, into some sort of hilarious failing.”

    When a throw away artistic choice dominates the aesthetic of a film as overbearingly as it did in Star Trek 2009, that is a failing. It was perfectly appropriate in Cloverfield, and sufficiently toned down to not be distracting in Super 8, but just because it’s a technique that can be effective in the right situation doesn’t mean any use of it is unimpeachable.

    I just watched The Book the other day. Great for a hate-watch, it’s hilariously bad. I liked the lady barbarian, though :)

    To be fair, it’s often difficult to determine whether the criticism of JJ’s use of Lens Flare is due to the actual Lens Flare effect or to people’s irrational hatred of the guy disguised as dislike for his use of Lens Flare. It’s almost a Pavlovian response: Lens Flare >>> OMFG, JJ I HATE YOU!

    That’s a fair point. Film Crit Hulk has an interesting article about how people often focus too much on criticizing “tangible details,” when their real problem with a film is much deeper, but harder to express.

    I read the Brosie story, which was totally awesome, before clicking on this. Since you cropped him, I was disappointed when I got to the reveal. I was expecting some stem, or at least some pubes.

    Oh man, please tell me that the “Up” ring box was delivered by tying it to a bunch of helium balloons.

    Can you imagine the proposal lines?
    “I just met you and I love you!”
    “Adventure is out there! Care to join me?”

    Yes, well my best friend’s aunt’s roommate’s step-son’s dog gets paid in Trident flavor layers to ignore you.
