If you live in the Los Angeles area and want to see some cool art, you need to get over to the Hero Complex Gallery. That’s because the gallery is hosting Craig Drake’s first solo show and it’s loaded with awesome artwork done on paper, metal (including mega metal prints that are 60 x 40!), and wood. While I’ve been a fan of Drake’s work for a long time, I’ll admit the show was another level. As you can see in the pictures, Drake took on some iconic movies, people, and TV shows including Die Hard, The Thing, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Bruce Lee, Buffy, Cowboy Bebop, Game of Thrones, and a lot more.
Since most of you live outside of Los Angeles, I took pictures of everything on display and you can check out over 40 pictures after the jump. In addition, the gallery will be releasing what didn’t sell out on their website tomorrow, so no matter where you live, you can purchase something. Be warned, if you check out the pictures you’re probably going to want to buy something.
Last Sunday, the third and final season of Eastbound and Down premiered with one of the series’ best episodes to date. They’ve got the comedy of Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) down to a science, and every one of his lines absolutely kills. A couple years ago, K-Swiss made the bold and brilliant decision to hire Kenny as their pitchman/MFCEO (Motherfuckin’ Chief Executive Officer). Now he’s back, parodying Steve Jobs (tooo soooon!), and selling K-Swiss’ latest shoe, Blades. The commercial is five-minutes long and only ten seconds are devoted to talking about the design of the shoe. Everything else is Kenny Powers being awesome and hilarious.
Hit the jump to check out the commercial, which features a conversation with Bruce Lee, green chicks on the moon, and a blood-drenched animated sequence. Eastbound and Down airs at 10pm EST on HBO.
I make it a rule never to trust a Chinese tabloid (I’ve been burned too many times!), but sometimes rules have to be broken if the rumor is delicious enough. Twitch reports [via Channel News Asia] that actor/writer/director Stephen Chow (Shaolin Soccer, Kung Fu Hustle) is making his next film Tai Chi, which will be a remake of the 1972 Bruce Lee film The Way of the Dragon. That’s pretty cool. Even cooler, the film may film this June and co-star Jack Black and Anne Hathaway.
Hit the jump to learn why this may be more than a rumor.
