I thought it would be real wild to do a Monster Fink rendition as an homage to Kustom Kulture so here it is,
This is going to be a series I'm doing starting with this one as No. 01. It was painted on a 6" x 8" canvas board with Acrylics. I have a number of humorous and thought provoking and just down right fun scenarios I have in mind that I want to paint. I don't know how many I'll do? I'm thinking of just painting them until I get bored with the whole Series or can't think of any more scenarios which ever comes first?
Well I'm off to paint some more but first I need some zzZzzZzzZzzZzZzzZzzZzZzZzleep...
I'll post some more later on in the daytime in the meantime if you are looking at this please comment if you like?
Ok, here's the lowdown The Kustom Kulture is one big ol' family I mean there ain't nowhere that you go and once you start talkin kar talk or anything hip man and that's it I mean wow! Way out! Ok...
Inside these blogs we have some pretty darned kool rod pictures and tattoo flash featured in this issue of Hot Rods and Swimsuits. What's that? The name? Oh... Well Hot Rods because you're gonna see a lot of'em and Swimsuits... well you get the picture don't cha?
Every Year around this time I like to go to car shows and Horror and Sci-fi conventions, and toy shows but I'll save that for another blog right now I'm only clammerin on about hot rods and pinups, tattoos, huge block parties, drive-in's, way out gassers, greasers, honeys, the smell of a drag strip and basically anything Rockabilly or Kustom Kulture.
Now if you're into rodding and just like to cruisie? NYC Rumblers Show will make you want to head for the Big Apple for sure. It's held under the expressway, and has been happenin' for ten years and getting bigger and better each year I hear. Now on the other side of this country in California, theres even "participatory" events, yeah no kidding! They are the Pasadena Roadster Club Reliability Run and the King of Clubs show. Both of which actually involve driving the hot rods that participate. I mean Wow, what a concept, huh? That's what hot rods are for!
There are lots of rod runs, bike events, and car shows out there and I am going to get to that in a minute, I have photos I want to post that I snapped at a local car dig I go to in my home town and I gotta tell ya these cars are candy-like they will make your eyes drool with glazed hypnotic thunder!
Speakin' of hypnotic, have you ever seen the Tales of the Rat Fink?
From the award-winning director of COMIC BOOK CONFIDENTIAL and GRASS comes TALES OF THE RAT FINK, Ron Mann's wildly inventive bio about Renaissance man Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, who engineered a shift in mid-twentieth century culture with his customized cars, "monster" T-shirts and America's alternative rodent - "Rat Fink"!
Awh man, if you haven't then you don't know what you're missin', I mean this dvd is freakin' awzum! It's got Art, Bikes, Cars, Design, Fascinating People, History, and Pop Culture all rolled up in one!
I'm going to get it as soon as get sum extra cash. But yeah it is killer man. I'm gonna lay this guys story on ya here, Ed Roth was a giant king in the Artomobile Industry and you are about to find out for you're self, his words are simple, kool daddy-o.
Here check it out! Cauze seeing is way better than I can describe it. Oh and this is just the trailer and not the whole thing. Go check it out but remember to come back here after you're done, ok?
Some of them are even arcane looking, those are more of the Rat Rod kind which I love. I love reading magazines about Kustom Kulture particularly OL' SKOOL RODZ, Car Kulture DeLuxe, HOT ROD DELUXE, TRADITIONAL ROD & KULTURE ILLUSTRATED, Rebel Rodz, Street Rods Milestones, and a few more too. Girls and Cars just go great together don't ja think? Especially the fast girls and the hot cars, "or is that the other way around?" Well the point is man you will see both in these on going issues of HOT RODS & SWIMSUITS! I can tell ya that's for sure. Well Gearheads and Chickies, gotta go but I'll be back and when I do... look out! There's gonna be some road rumblin', booty shakin' madness goin' on round heahhh!
