…Your car is dirty?

Lamborghini Gallardo

You’ve probably had your car cleaned before, and you may have even had it detailed once or twice, but I can promise you that you’ve never had it cleaned and detailed like Clark’s Ne Plus Ultra can clean and detail it.

Recently, Clark decided to photograph and document his entire process for the Detailing World message boards, and reading through it is like a how-to for the automotively obsessed.

With four days of washing, waxing, measuring, taping, prepping, polishing, and even painting, the car comes out looking better than it ever has, even when compared to a factory fresh example.

Makes your bucket of suds seem rather simple by comparison, doesn’t it?

…It’s Movie Monday: Ryan?

Ryan

Ryan was “a Canadian animator. A gentleman panhandler. One of the pioneers of Canadian animation. Oscar nominee. Poor beggar. An artist unable to create. God observing the world. Fallen angel. Arrogant. Shy. Broken. Not destroyed.” 30 years ago, Ryan produced some of the most influential animated films of his time. Years later, plagued by alcoholism and drug abuse, he was destitute on the streets of Toronto.

In this rather captivating and haunting short, called simply “Ryan”, Chris Landreth animates a tribute to Ryan Larkin.

    In Ryan we hear the voice of Ryan Larkin and people who have known him, but these voices speak through strange, twisted, broken and disembodied 3D generated characters… people whose appearances are bizarre, humorous or disturbing. Although incredibly realistic and detailed, Ryan was created and animated without the use of live action footage, rotoscoping or motion capture…but instead from an original, personal, hand animated three-dimensional world which Chris calls ‘psychological realism’.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Cardboard car?

Cardboard Aston Martin

Despite looking like you could hop in and take it for a spin, this Aston Martin DB5 is actually a model made entirely out of cardboard.

Chris Gilmour handcrafted this cardboard car, and though it won’t take you very far, it is an amazingly detailed piece of work, complete all the way down to the Bond gadgets sticking out of the sides.

Plus, it’s easy to ship.
