1963 MOPAR PARTS ADS FEATURING SERVICE STATION ROBOTS


Check out these very cool Mopar ads from 1963. I guess this fab four are robot service station men made from Mopar parts. It would be fun if there was an animated commercial from back then, but I didn't find any evidence of one. I hope whoever designed these got a big fat raise!

COMIC BOOK WALLPAPER: BATMAN



Holy 75th Anniversary, Batman! Just like I did for Superman on his 75th birthday, I created some desktop wallpapers to honor the dark knight. All are 1920x1080 size. Click the image and save it to your computer or save it as a desktop background.

1950S LITTLE SOAPS FROM THE DISNEYLAND HOTEL

FLEA MARKET FRIDAYS #86


Here's a fun score for today! Two 1950s Disneyland Hotel soaps. I'm far from an expert, but I believe "and restaurants" was dropped by the 1960s. If so, this is probably one of the early soap wrapper designs for the hotel. They're not in the greatest condition but still a nice piece of Disneyland history to share.

NEON SIGNS OF BLADE RUNNER


Blade Runner has been discussed and dissected so many times since its 1982 release that I didn't think I had anything new to share. However, I was surprised when I did a simple internet search for Blade Runner neon signs and not much showed up. What? I figured I'd see scads of Blade Runner sign galleries. Maybe even an awesome gallery of production photos of each sign from the 2019 Los Angeles set. This was wishful thinking. I guess sometimes you have to do stuff yourself. Okay internet, you now have a Blade Runner sign gallery. Until a better collection of sign photos surface, here's a bunch of sign screen grabs from Blade Runner. You're welcome.
