Rumpus Linky

First up, a notice – many local readers will recall the spectacular Rumpus parties of previous years. d3vo is not hosting one in 2010 (and we missed 2009 too) because he’s getting his DJ on at a gig called Speed of Sound. Friday June 4th, free entry, scratch that rumpus itch!

Now, some linky.

Real-life Iron Man suit. And real life Captain Nemo’s Nautilus. In my day we just built Airfix models.

And finally… U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan remake the video to Lady Gaga’s ‘Telephone’. Joyous. See it to believe it.

  1. “In my day”? Pah, some of us still build airfix kits! The hobby is in something of a golden age at the moment, with more diversity and subjects available than at any time in its history.

  2. You know, despite my time in NZ, I never made it to a Rumpus. Damn.

    But those kids are outstanding. And those guys in Afghanistan should get a medal of some kind. A big, sparkly medal.


  3. Samm: You finished the Hustler, yes?


    Hanging fighter planes from his ceiling (metaphorically).

  4. Hmmm, I need to track down that forum thread where Adam Savage (from Mythbusters) called the guy who made the Iron Man a suit an asshole. It was fun (and totally deserved).
