Far Western: The Evolution Of Country Music In Japan

It’s rare that you catch me getting excited about a documentary, but it’s a tad hard to watch the Kickstarter video for Far Western, and not get a big smile on your face, especially when you love country music. (We’re talking about the real stuff — Merle, Waylon, Willie, Kris, Hank, et al.; not that processed Tim McGraw crap.) Justin Payne, a young filmmaker out of Tulsa, Oklahoma, has done thorough research on this project, filming the small but fanatical Japanese movement to bring bluegrass and traditional country to the East, and his efforts require one more trip before the Read More

The Russian Bear Documentary Salutes Ivan Koloff

The Russian Bear is the definitive documentary about Ivan Koloff, and how he became one of wrestling’s biggest legends. While we’re certainly not as “in” to wrestling as we used to be, there is and will always be a soft spot for the era where Koloff was at his most popular. In those days, the cat wasn’t out of the bag. Most knew wrestling was “fake,” but there was an aura of mystery and uncertainty that still surrounded it. Only now are some of the super-cool behind the scenes moments starting to come to light. This Kickstarter project promises more Read More

Brok Windsor: The Reprints!

During WWII, the artist named Jon Stables moved from Winnipeg to British Columbia to work on painting signs for the ships to help out war efforts. Here he joined up with a brand new publisher named Maple Leaf Comics, where after a short amount of time he became art director. In 1944, he created an action-adventure story in the pages of Better Comics called “Brok Windsor”, named for a close friend who died in combat during WWII. Brok Windsor was a doctor who discovered a secret land called Chaqua hiding in the midst of the Canadian wilderness during a normal Read More

Brick-A-Pic: Turn Any Image Into A LEGO Rendering

Brick-A-Pic is an inventive marriage of LEGO and software. By simply choosing an image and sending it to the folks at BAP, you can have that image turned in to a LEGO replica. The company’s software program sources both existing and retired colors for a diverse color palette to pull off anything you want to throw at it. You can get plans only starting at around $10.

We Make Beer: Inside The Spirit And Artistry Of America’s Craft Brewers

The beer-brewing community is one of like-minded craftsmen — as author Sean Lewis sees them, “creators who weren’t afraid to speak their minds, who saw their competitors as cherished friends.” That’s rare in America, and even rarer in the business world. In Lewis’ book We Make Beer, he describes a group “who takes sheer joy in their work, and who seeks the same kind of balance in their lives as they do in the barrels they brew.” To write this book, Lewis shared pints with pioneering upstarts like Paul and Kim Kavulak of Nebraska Brewing Company, and talked shop with craft beer Read More

’86 Mets: The Movie, Revisit One Of The Craziest World Series Ever

I remember watching the 1986 World Series and hoping against all things holy that the Boston Red Sox would break the curse and put a stop to the New York Mets. Alas, ’twas not to be. There was something special about that group of guys, and now a new Kickstarter campaign hopes to honor them with ’86 Mets: The Movie. Project head Heather Quinlan describes why she chose this team for the documentary film treatment: “They were the last championship team in New York to reflect the true identity of the city that never sleeps,” she writes. “They were the Read More
