IRONY MAN- STARK RAVING MAD




IRONY MAN- STARK RAVING MAD





"As soon as Tony Stark unveiled the latest Iron Man armour upgrade the others knew that, tragically, the design owed more to the bottle than the blueprint..."

-----------------------------------------------

Okay, ya done laughing?

Not yet?

Right-O. Hush now.

For such a corny joke this picture has a long story behind it...not quite the thousand words to accompany the picture.

Now, I'm a humungous Iron Man fan. Why else would I have so many action figures? Ya think I'm some kinda pencil necked, plastic fetish geek? Ahem. So, I wouldn't want to come within a bulls-roar of insulting my fictional hero.

As you may know, Tony's a bit of a drongo when it comes to the drink. In his case A.A definitely doesn't stand for Avengers Assemble! It's one reason amongst many why I've enjoyed the character's adventures over the years in Marvel Comics.

I first encountered the comics (and the beaut T.V cartoon!) back in the 1960s and have pretty much been a fan ever since.

Several reasons for that....

The armour, of course, and no surprises there if you've been checking out the rest of my photosets!

I gotta turtle component in my blood...and probably a TMNT one at that. (Cowabunga!)

Might have a bit of the Demon Rum in my blood as well, since my dad had the Curse in common with Stark, whose own fictional father was also overfond of the sauce.

Anyway, there I was an impressionable young ankle-biter trying to make sense of the fact that my dad wasn't the super-hero we'd all like our fathers to be. Along came Iron-Man; a fallable, periodically drunken, stone-cold genius of an engineer who wasn't super-powered per se but nevertheless tinkered together a suit of armour that made him more than a match for his meta-human foes and allies.

Well, don't want to bung it on too thick but I learned a lot from the Iron Man stories and am happy to say that I never staggered down the same road as my father, in part due to Tony's stubborn example constantly before me. His failures as much as his successes underlined my own situation.

To this day I don't drink alcohol. (And I'm not a billionaire industrialist/super heroe either.)

No need really, when you're an artist (and a costumer in particular) who has time for lesser vices! :)

Which is not to say that I'm a wowser who'd begrudge a man a drink after a hard day's work working up a big cold thirst. Perish the thought!

But I've worked through it all myself and am comfortable about it to the extent that I feel it's okay to play around a little. Maybe if Tony had a bit more of a sense of humour he wouldn't have gotten into so much trouble. Mind, he's pretty quick with the obligatory smart-arse quips when battling the baddies!

So, anyway, what with all the re-boots the character has had since the 1960s Tony has ended up falling off the wagon more times than he's upgraded his armour (which is a lot!). To us old Iron Mongerers it's getting to be a bit of a giggle...

C'mon Marvel Comic folks, after all the times he's saved the bloody planet you'd think you could give the bloke a break!

Here endeth the lesson, except to say that the picture has had only a wee bit of photoshopping and is mostly down to silly set building, lighting and posing. Okay; not playing with the toys.

The set floor is a piece of machine punched leather, the wall is the underside of my plastic drawing board. Details include: a sliderule, egg rings, a Vogon desk stapler, bits of the Spirit/Opportunity Mars Rover probe toy, assorted light fittings and the Steampunk mechanical spider-wheelchair that the villain rode in the Wild Wild West movie.

Amongst the various I.M armours I've included Tony's awesome Hulkbuster gear, the Ultimates suit (Manga inspired) and one that transforms into a battle-axe. Several are from the mega-beaut Marvel legends action figure series. Well worth the coin!

By the way, the bottle is Old Fortan and Tony got it from Bender...and yes, that's the next shot!

Invincible or what?









































WAR OF THE WORLDS MARTIAN FIGHTING MACHINES #1




WAR OF THE WORLDS MARTIAN FIGHTING MACHINES #1





Wot we did during our Martian Summer Hols. One- Invaded Earth...

The basic costume behind this photoset comes from H.G Wells and his seminal alien invasion novel, The War Of The Worlds. The theme of one of the Australian Costumers Guild London Lowlifes' Feast (1997, Melbourne) was Victorian era gear, and, as always, I was keen to interpret it in some kind of science fiction or fantasy fashion.

Cue turn of the century ID4!

Always liked the original Martian Fighting Machine tripods that Wells created for the story, although am also rather fond of the manta-ray hulled, cobra-necked creations from the 1952 Byron Haskin/George Pal movie too.

Anyway, sticking with the period concept, it was just a matter of interpreting the M.F.Ms in cardboard, as well as throwing in a bit of a retro-steampunk angle to reflect the fact that this was a a late 20th century take on an essentially 19th century idea. Which informed the boxy, riveted boiler plate look that the final costumes had.

With that in mind Ken Haesler and I tooled the things up fairly quickly out of cardboard boxe, assorted found objects, plastic and agricultural tubing for the tentacles.

The head, torso and hip sections all had independent motion so we could twist and turn, kind of important for the obligatory silly dance that we did on the night.

One way or another, I always end up doing a turn on the dance floor in whatever monsterous creation I happen to be wearing at the event. Sometimes this is more practical than others....with only my dancing partners knowing how much of an understatement that is!

The 'third leg' of the tripods (the middle stump!) was operated by a pivoted pole, a little bit like running a hand pump actually.


Armament was restricted to our toy gatling guns, which made a lovely racket as well as lighting up nicely. We also had some pre-scored panels that could take 'hits' and could be blown off using streamer loaded party poppers.

Econoclasts: The Rebels Who Sparked the Supply-Side Revolution and Restored American Prosperity


Econoclasts: The Rebels Who Sparked the Supply-Side Revolution and Restored American Prosperity



Ever since America descended into economic crisis the comparisons to the Great Depression have come fast and furious. Incredibly, we have heard almost nothing about a much more recent economic calamity: the ruinous "stagflation" of the 1970s—the second-worst decade in American economic history. But now, in the riveting, groundbreaking book Econoclasts, historian Brian Domitrovic reminds us that the twentieth century’s greatest economic counterrevolution emerged in response to that crisis: supply-side economics.

In a pulsing narrative, Domitrovic tells the remarkable story of the economists, journalists, Washington staffers, and (ultimately) politicians who showed America how to get out of the 1970s funk and ushered in an unprecedented quarter-century run of growth and opportunity. Here we meet Robert Mundell, the brilliant economist who held court over martinis in a Manhattan steakhouse; his gregarious cohort Arthur Laffer, chief economist on the president’s budget staff at the tender age of thirty; Robert Bartley, the Wall Street Journal’s reticent editorial-page editor who became the first impresario of supply-side economics; Jack Kemp, the football-star-turned-congressman who led the fight to turn supply-side theory into practice; Norman Ture, the relentless economic forecaster who faced down Alan Greenspan; Jude Wanniski, the eccentric, hot rod-driving reporter whose best-selling book touched off the supply-side revolution; and a host of other fascinating figures who helped upend the economic establishment.

Based on the author’s years of archival research, Econoclasts explodes numerous myths about supply-side economics, including its "creation myth"—the famous incident in which Laffer sketched a simple curve on a napkin. Domitrovic conclusively demonstrates that supply-side advocates did not invent a doctrine out of whole cloth. Their central insight was that the two massive means of governmental intrusion in the economy—the income tax and the Federal Reserve—play the primary role in starting and perpetuating any economic crisis. What’s more, Domitrovic shows that the specific combination of tax cuts and stable money had an unbroken record of success long before it went by the name "supply-side economics": in 1962, when JFK ended the economic sluggishness that had brought three recessions in Eisenhower’s eight-year presidency; in 1947, when the United States embarked on the postwar boom; and in 1922, when Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon inaugurated the Roaring ’20s by imploring the Fed to keep the price level stable and arranging for Congress to slash income-tax rates.

Econoclasts is a masterful narrative history in the tradition of Amity Shlaes’s The Forgotten Man and John Steele Gordon’s An Empire of Wealth. It is also impeccably timely: this is a story we must know if we are to understand the foundations of America’s prosperity—foundations that are now under increasing attack.

"Couldn't be more timely."
— Amity Shlaes, bestselling author of The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression

"A brilliant look at America's last economic crisis. This is the book Americans need to read now."
— Larry Kudlow, host of CNBC's The Kudlow Report

“I’ve never read anything on the subject of economics that surpasses this extraor¬dinary book for its lucidity, richness, depth, intelligibility, savvy, and sheer intellectual excitement. Its publication could hardly come at a better time, as the fatal attraction of statism seems to have reemerged, one more time, from the murky depths to which it had been consigned.”

Newly Built 7 WTC




Newly Built 7 WTC





There have been two buildings in New York City named 7 World Trade Center. The first building, which opened in 1987, was destroyed on September 11, 2001. The newer building was completed in 2006 and it is the first with a World Trade Center address to have been rebuilt.

Construction of the new 7 World Trade Center began in 2002, and was completed in 2006 at a cost of $700 million.[12] The 52-story building is is 750 feet (228 m) tall, and contains 1,700,000 square feet (158 000 m?) of leasable office space starting from the 11th floor.[13] The first ten floors will house an electrical substation which will power most of Lower Manhattan. The office tower has a narrower footprint at ground level than its predecessor (as the course of Greenwich Street has been restored in an effort to re-unite Tribeca and the Financial District).

The architect was David Childs of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill who worked in conjunction with glass artist and designer James Carpenter. They used ultra-clear, low-iron glass to provide reflectivity and light, with stainless-steel spandrels behind the glass that also help reflect sunlight.[12] Artist Jenny Holzer created a large light installation inside the main lobby with glowing text moving across wide plastic panels.[12] The entire wall is about 30 meters wide by 7 meters tall and changes colors, according to the time of day.

The building has 2 foot (60 cm) thick reinforced concrete and fireproofed elevator and stairway access shafts, whereas the original building used only drywall to line these shafts. The stairways are wider than in the original building to permit greater egress. Steel columns are encased in much thicker fire protection and the building is being promoted as the safest skyscraper in the U.S.[14] According to Silverstein Properties, the owner of the building, it "will incorporate a host of life-safety enhancements that will become the prototype for new high-rise construction..."

7 World Trade Center is equipped with destination elevators, supplied by the Otis Elevator Company.[15] After entering their floor destination in a lobby keypad, people are grouped together and directed to specific elevators that will stop at their particular floor. There are no buttons to press inside the elevators. This system is designed to reduce waiting and travel times on the elevators.

The building is considered New York City's first "green" office tower by gaining gold status in the US Green Building Council's LEED program.[16] Rainwater is collected and used for irrigation of the park, and to cool the building, and recycled steel was used in the building's construction.[12]

The triangular park was created by David Childs with Ken Smith and his colleague Annie Weinmayr of Ken Smith Landscape Architect, and is situated between the now extended Greenwich Street and West Broadway. It consists of a central open plaza with a fountain and flanking groves of trees and shrubs. As the seasons change, so will the colors in the park, providing a soothing natural complement to the adjacent tower. Artist Jeff Koons created Balloon Flower (Red), the sculpture in the center of the fountain.

Building Seven was not included in the original World Trade Center master plan by Daniel Libeskind, but was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill under the leadership of David Childs, who largely redesigned the Freedom Tower.

The building was officially opened at noon on May 23, 2006 with a free concert sponsored by Larry Silverstein. The concert featured Suzanne Vega, Citizen Cope, Bill Ware Vibes, Brazilian Girls, Ollabelle, Pharaoh's Daughter, Ronan Tynan of the Irish Tenors, and special guest Lou Reed.

From September 8 to October 7, 2006, the work of photographer Jonathan Hyman was on exhibit in 7 World Trade Center, on the 45th floor.[17] The exhibit, "An American Landscape", was hosted by the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation. The photographs captured the response of people in New York City and across the United States following the September 11, 2001 attacks. At the time of the exhibit, the 45th floor was a large, empty concrete space, which will eventually be turned into offices. From the 45th floor, visitors could also see 360 degree views of Lower Manhattan, Midtown Manhattan, the Hudson River, Brooklyn Bridge, and a view of the World Trade Center site

The Chicago Board of Trade
Commissioned in 1925 to architects Holabird & Root, the building was constructed by general contractors Hegeman & Harris for $12 millon. Clad in gray Indiana limestone, topped with a copper pyramid roof, and standing on a footprint running 174 feet east and west on Jackson Boulevard and 240 feet north and south on LaSalle Street, the 605-foot tall art-deco styled building opened on June 9 1930. It serves as the southern border for the skyscrapers hugging LaSalle Street and remains taller than surrounding structures for several blocks. The Chicago Board of Trade has operated continuously at its twelfth location since the opening, initially occupying 70,000 of an available 600,000 square feet of floorspace,[11] and dedicating 19,000 square feet to the world's largest trading floor.[12] The advent of steel frame structural systems provided the ability for completely vertical construction, but as with many skyscrapers of the era, the exterior was designed with multiple setbacks at increasing heights, which served to allow additional light into the ever increasing concrete valleys in urban cores. At night, the setbacks are upwardly lit by floodlights, further highlighting the structure's vertical elements. Interior decoration includes polished surfaces throughout, use of black and white marble, prominent vertical hallway trim, and an open three-story lobby which at the time of opening housed the world's largest light fixture. Though One LaSalle Street had five more floors, the CBOT building was the first in Chicago to exceed a height of 600 feet. After surpassing the Chicago Temple Building, it was the tallest in Chicago until the Richard J. Daley Center was completed in 1965. It remains the tallest art-deco building outside of Manhattan. Known for their work on the Brooklyn Bridge, the family-operated factory of John A. Roebling supplied much of the 20 miles of wire rope used in the building and all of the cables used in the building's 23 Otis elevators.[13]
