Madness. Monster madness, tiki and polynesian design everywhere, surf garage punk everywhere, hotties by the pool, stiff drinks flowing, a hotrod show in the parking lot… add comics to the mix and it’s the world if I was God.
Come by and buy some Popular Naughty- clothing for the inner hooligan.
Popular Naughty is a streetwear company that specializes in that kinda dive bar, burlesque club, vintage, punk rock in yer frackin’ face designs We are toying with bringing the online shop here. Hey, if it is good enough for Miss Mia Vixen, it should be good enough for anyone.
Sexy, manly, adventurey, swarthy, international adventure and espionage-y task team DANGER 5 is finally making it’s Hitler hunting way into the poposhpere of US geeks.
This remarkable blend of sci fi, Thunderbirds, Flint, Helm, and Sid and Marty Kroft is perfect in every way. The sound, the lines, the poor dubbing… all skillfully dated and brilliant. Oh, and don’t get me started on the supreme hotness of Natasa Ristic.
Enjoy this uber campy Danger 5 intro reel.
Claire does get a bit mouthy…. for a broad. Eagle headed Colonels don’t have the time for such nonsense.
It seems SOMEBODY swiped Adrianne Curry’s Stan Lee is my Homeboy t-shirt, which was a hand delivered gift from Popular Naughty. This of course means she will rain down her vengeance upon those deserving a wrathful raining. Or something.
So I went to Comikaze 2012 last weekend, partially to run up some display stuff and maybe help out a bit for the cast and crew of Bad Kids Go To Hell, my new fave indie cult hit; and also to see if it would be worth getting a booth for Popular Naughty.
I would have to say it is a good booth idea. The show itself is kinda old school Comic Con… easy to see it all, a very casual atmosphere to speak with the artists and creators, tons of super geek chic shopping options, and a reasonable load of panels to see. It did have a shortage of actual COMICS, but I am sure that will grow. Stan Lee IS one of the show’s owners now.
I LOVED that they had an pre-show concert. Pop art and alternative music have always been delightful bedfellows, so Peter Murphy was a perfect choice. Here are a few pics.
Now get this. Adrianne Curry, one of the show’s organizers, Stan, and Peter took the stage and Stan Lee and Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy sang a duet of That Old Black Magic.
Wow, the voice of legendary post punk goth group Bauhaus kneeling to the Nerd King.
A very cool alien salesman by the makeup peeps from Face Off.
Bad Kid Go TO Hell co-writer Matthew Spradlin had a casual victim/zombie relationship with a couple of roaming zombies.
There was also the cute geek factor.
Here is Bad Kids Go To Hell actress Amanda Alch lookin’ all retro megahoot.
Yes, I DO have a thing for redheads. Here is the ubercute Alana from Face Off.
Danger Factory, where geeks rule, weird is cool, and we swim in the exotic cocktail of music, art, and the world.
