Stanley Kubrick even obsessed about his cardboard boxs. [firebailed]
Christian Bale responded to criticism he’s received for his trademark weight loss and gains in The Fighter and his previous movies. [dailymail]
“To be honest, I find it laughable that it’s considered to be some f****** gimmick – it’s so patronizing. For God’s sake, do people not understand what a pain it is to do? It’s as though it’s some comment about, ‘Oh it’s easy for him, because he’s done it a bunch of times.’ It’s not easy, it’s not fun – it’s horrible. I would never pick to do that, but it’s a part that I like and he’s a welterweight and he’s a crackhead. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen a welterweight with any fat on him – or a crackhead. So it’s just what you end up having to do. Somebody told me that somebody wrote something about my “trademark weight loss”. I’d just like to p*** on that guy’s shoes.”
This Imperial AT-AT Walker is made from recycled computer parts and other scrap metal materials. [laughingsquid]
The main body is composed of power supply boxes from old computers, the head from floppy drive housings, legs and feet from various scrap metal. The entire piece has been welded together using the MIG welding process. Two coats of cold galvanizing primer are applied followed by a coat of varied grays and finished with two coats of protective gloss. The whole sculpture was randomly “attacked” with the welding arc to simulate battle scars.

The Art Guys are claiming that Morgan Spurlock stole some of their ideas for his new movie The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. Sounds like it is just a coincidence to me. [unbeige]
