Design of the Week: Rolling Along with RollerBall!

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week...we go back to the future with a design for roller hockey or roller derby players, and roller skaters, rollerbladers, or skateboarders from the 1975 version of RollerBall!
It's a copy of an on-set poster from the Tokyo-Houston match, featuring the "computer" font popular in the 1970s and a kool high-contrast graphic featuring a pair of players/combatants.
It really pops on dark t-shirts, sweats, or hoodies! (Also available on iPad / messenger bags, gym bags, and mugs!)
Shred, style, and thrash like it's 2018!

YouTube Wednesday: THE GREEN HORNET "Crime Wave"

If the videos don't work, click HERE!
It's a 1960s version of cybercrime as The Green Hornet faces a computer that can predict his crimes in "Crime Wave",  the fourth broadcast episode! (A neat trick since The Hornet is just pretending to be a criminal!)
There's double-crossing, a couple of elaborately-planned robberies, and the first all-out fight scene in the series as The Hornet and Kato take on several foes at once!
We also get to see The Black Beauty's built-in gas-guns in operation for the first time!
Side notes:
Despite being computer whizzes, the criminals in this episode can't construct a pistol-sized gas gun like The Hornet carries and have to lug a huge canister of knockout gas around with them!
There's a costume party scene where a number of costumes contain elements (helmets, tunics, sidearms) from various Irwin Allen shows (Lost in Space, Time Tunnel, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea)

Halloween; the time for HORROR! (Horror Comics, that is!)

Before videogames came along, comics (and tv...and movies) were said to be the contributing factors to JUVENILE DELINQUENCY!
I say...CELEBRATE the stuff your grandparents said would warp your parents' minds!
After all, they turned out OK, didn't they?
Didn't they?
Oh, well...
What could be more appropriate for Halloween than the frightening images of Horror Comics of the 1950s on t-shirt, hoodies, mugs, and other kool kollectibles?
Are you ready to be scared? Click Now...if you dare!

Fantastic Femmes--Regina Hall

Considering she didn't begin acting until the age of 26, it's interesting to note that Regina Hall's best-known role (up to now) is teenager Brenda Meeks in the film-spoof Scary Movie series!
She's done a little of everything from situation comedy to soap opera, to slice-of-life drama, and made it all look easy.
Regina's even taken on an iconic character as Trixie Norton, Ed Norton's long-suffering wife, in a movie remake of The Honeymooners, and her performace was one of the few good things in the flick!
Now, she's a dramatic DA in the newest Law & Order series debuting this week!
Talk about versatile!
Genre appearances include...
Law & Order: Los Angeles (Deputy DA Evelyn Price)
Scary Movie/Scary Movie 2/Scary Movie 3/Scary Movie 4 / Scary Movie 5 (Brenda Meeks)
SuperHero Movie(Mrs Xavier)
Law-Abiding Citizen(Kelly Rice)
