It’s been a while since I’ve posted album cover art, and I just couldn’t stop with the Shusei Nagaoka awesomeness. Viva la 1970s!
Another hat-tip to Sci-Fi-O-Rama for showcasing some of the 1970s-80s artwork of Shusei Nagaoka. (Unknowingly I featured his ELO album cover art quite a while ago. He has quite the funky, spacey portfolio going, as far as album covers go!) There is an amazingly hi-res selection of Nagaoka-san’s art at Pink Tentacle — don’t miss it! (It was hard to restrain myself to just two images, I admit. I may yet publish more.)
I’ve only been to Disneyland once — I was six, and it was Disneyland’s 25th anniversary that year. With a modicum of research, now you know how old I am. Sigh. I honestly don’t remember much anymore, but this photo is all the proof I need that indeed, Disneyland is the happiest place on Earth.

I saw this beautifully framed on Saturday — it’s actually the sheet music for Silver Stars by Carl Bohm. (As I was in an antique store, the pictures I took secretly are of terrible quality; these are from eBay.) Definitely would not mind hanging this art on my office wall!
I didn’t realize that Buzz Lightyear had put time in on the ISS, but he came home a week ago, and is eagerly anticipating his ticker tape parade in October:
Also returning aboard space shuttle Discovery was Disney’s space ranger Buzz Lightyear, after spending 15 months aboard the International Space Station. His time on the orbiting laboratory will celebrated in a ticker-tape parade together with his space station crew mates and former Apollo 11 moonwalker Buzz Aldrin on Oct. 2 at Walt Disney World in Florida.
And hey, the guy’s been working hard while he was up there.
While on the space station, Buzz supported NASA’s education outreach program — Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM, by creating a series of fun educational online outreach programs. Following his return, Disney is partnering with NASA to create a new online educational game and an online mission patch competition for school kids across America.
I’m sure you’ll agree that this is quite possibly the BEST PICTURE EVER.
…whatdoyouMEAN you can’t tell what it is? Isn’t it obvious?? No? Well, you’ll just have to go and see for yourself. It is very clear that I can’t post this image on my website, so enjoy the 50px mosaic filter. I know I do.
Want a hint before you click? You’re the cautious type, I can tell.
Remember the rising of the starship Enterprise from the atmosphere of Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, in the recent motion picture Star Trek, with magnificent Saturn and its rings dramatically coming into view in the background? It was a scene so highly regarded that its final shot was featured on the cover of Cinefex, the main motion picture industry magazine for visual effects.
Legally, with-permission-ly, “high resolution, digital shots from that scene” are exclusively available right over here. DO NOT MISS THIS DOWNLOAD. I am talking fully-detailed at over 6,000 pixels wide and tall Enterprise/Saturn yummy goodness. It definitely makes the most beautiful *desktop* ever, if I do say so myself.
I love Star Wars, so naturally this Flickr set of poster and wallpaper-quality pictures thrilled me to bits. (Not that I want the Imperial forces to invade San Francisco, of course… but the imagery is pretty darn awesome, I have to admit.) Get the whole set here!
I would be remiss in not sharing this gigantic post of awesome Star Wars movie art and inspired creations, courtesy of Dark Roasted Blend.
