kalron I was thinking the same thing when I first saw the photo. Then I remembered my Rule #1 for halloween costumes -- Think about having to take a piss, really badly.

kalron Sure the fly is accessible but looking at how high the arm holes are I don't think it's accessible by the wearer of the costume.  I know from experience the line "Hey honey can you help me out with a little problem" doesn't work unless it's your wife. And even then it get's a boring for her after a while.

Nice collection, Kalron. Probably the most evocative for me were those hugs space ships traveling down the massive underground cavern. Very 1970s sci-fi: brings back great memories of hours spent reading Arthur C. Clarke, at a time when computers were just taking off and it seemed the U.S. space program was unstoppable.

squrlz4ever It's actually an Atari 2600 cover art for Vangaurd done by the Star Wars concept artist Ralph Mcquarrie (who passed away in 2012).  It's a favorite of mine :)

kalron Do you know when it was painted? Roughly? My instincts say mid-Seventies, but I could be way off.

UPDATE: So far, what I've learned is that Atari hired Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie to paint the image for their game, which was released in 1982. Not sure when the painting itself was done, but presumably not long before the release, so I'm guessing the painting dates to somewhere in 1980-1982.

It's a great painting. Love it.

squrlz4ever 1982 according to my research.  Close enough to the 70's.

Look failure?

When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

megrendel Here is the amazing thing about Big Trouble and Jack Burton.  It's a story of the Average Joe who accidentally falls into the wrong film.  He thinks he is the hero but actually he is the analog for the viewer.  This is most visible when he shoots the ceiling and knocks himself out during the end battle.  John Carpenter is a fucking fantastic sublime director.  And the soundtrack (recently released for the first time) is top notch.

It's like Carpenter's Alice in Wonderland\The Wizard of Oz.  After the alley fight, Jack isn't in Kansas anymore.

megrendel Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."
