the goblin kitchen

Short films have become a great way for geeky film makers to hone their craft and create new and interesting projects. Player Piano likes to put their own spin on film/tv/videogame themes and have partnered with The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball to create ‘The Goblin Kitchen’ in Jim Henson style.

Its definitely worth a look and you may even recognize some familiar faces. Check out the video after the break.

J.R.R Tolkien fans, whether you side with the Dwarves or the Orcs, now is your chance to drink from the skull of your enemy.

I have no idea how many ounces it holds, but for this price, I’d buy it to do shots. Then again, the $4.99 price tag might be a typo. Did they mean $14.99? Either way, better jump on it while you can.

See more pictures after the break.

Starting this Fall, Indiana Jones fans will have a new place to grab a bite and have a drink at Walt Disney World Resort. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.

Jock Lindsay, as you may recall, was Indy’s intrepid pilot. So look for aviation-themed cocktails and food like the “Hovito Mojito”, the “Air Pirates Everything Pretzels” and “Rolling Boulder Meatballs”. Aviation decor, vintage travel posters and even a docked steamboat are part of the fun. And look out for nods to Lindsay’s pet snake Reggie.

Based on the concept art, I’d definitely like to swing by some time. Still, it’s not exactly what I would expect for an Indiana Jones-themed restaurant. Seems like they could have gone much bigger with this.

See concept art of the interior after the break.

food cubes

Food as art goes to a new level with this project by Dutch artists Lernert and Sander. The duo cut raw food into 98 individual 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm cubes for a food-themed documentary photography special for the Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant.

If you’re a perfectionist, it’s very satisfying to look at.

See how many foods you can identify after the break.

If you have a drink that is better cold than warm, it is only logical that you should use a drink cooler. It is only logical.

There’s also a joke to be made here about Spock and his ability to keep his cool.

foodography

Think people posting photos of their food on Instagram has gone too far? Carmel Winery a and restaurant in Tel Aviv called Catit thinks it hasn’t gone far enough.

Carmel Winery teamed up with Catit to launch a program called Foodography, which is a dinner experience that also teaches you how to take better pictures of your food. To that end, they’ve designed special plates. They even have professional food photographers come in and teach the classes.

You can take the Foodgraphy course for $155 an hour through June 2015. Apparently, Carmel Winery plans to take the concept to restaurants around the world in the near future.

Check out more pictures and a video after the break.

If you’re planning to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends, you really need to dine at the Rebel Hangar: A Star Wars Lounge Experience.

From Lightsaber Bites to Yoda Key Lime Cake, there’s all sorts of good stuff. Personally, I could go for a Rebel Red, which is Grey Goose vodka, Chambord, sour mix and a splash of grenadine.

Star Wars Weekends 2015 returns to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort on Friday, May 15.

Head after the break to see more pictures and details on the menu.
