The image above is a crop from an image Eric Baker of New York City sent out yesterday in his daily “Today” missive. Who the hell know where he found it. No idea. But man, check out that kick-ass triton-thing(?,) and the flames, and the colors, and the type, and hell, all of it. Too many things to look at.

The Thing is one of my all time favourite movies

I was just talk’n about The Thing with my neighbor the other day. So rad. Carpenter classic.

John Carpenter’s contribution to film is often criminally overlooked. Consider his 80s holy trinity: The Thing, Escape from New York, and Big Trouble in Little China.
Big Trouble is, admittedly, lighter fare but still rock solid.
