I’ve always loved the posters and shirts that Mondo puts out. I’ve been going there since it was located in the old Alamo on 4th & Colorado. You could pick out your own iron-on t-shirt. Since then Mondo has blown up and exclusively do posters by some really talented artists. I couldn’t be happier for them.
I know the posters sell out really fast. I just didn’t know how fast since I rarely make attempts to buy any until today. I’ve bought a few posters from the actual gallery itself. I really wanted this SILENCE OF THE LAMBS poster. This is one of my favorite movies of all time and I absolutely love the dog, Precious. Low and behold, the poster sold out in less than five minutes! I couldn’t even load the page before it sold out. I am just so disappointed.
Then, immediately a handful of posters mysteriously appeared on ebay. The poster hasn’t even shipped to the seller and they’re already auctioning it off for no less than $100 (the original price was $40).
This is total bullshit! It takes the fun out of collecting when some asshole in bumfuck Michigan is buying a poster for a movie he could care less about just so he can make a quick buck on ebay. It’s just not fair.
Yesterday, I got to check out the newest show at the Mondo Gallery and it is amazing! I had a tough time deciding what print I wanted. I ended up taking home The Joker. I really wanted Ash, but he was sold out. If you’re in the Austin area, I really suggest you check it out. Here are a few other prints available, hurry they go fast!
The menu from the official Veronica Mars Kickstarter Party on Friday night at the Dog & Duck Pub. It was such an amazing experience. I ain’t gonna lie, I screamed like a school girl when Jason Dohring unexpectedly showed up.
There’s been plenty of Hey Girl & Natalie Portman sightings lately as a result of this new Terrence Malick film that is currently shooting in Austin. I had my very own Michael Fassbender sighting last week. Little is known about Terrence Malick’s personal life because he is as elusive as the notorious white squirrel on UT campus. This video captured of the legendary director in his natural habitat (The Broken Spoke) proves that he knows how to party. I can’t tell you how excited I am to see this new film when it’s done.
