The only thing Korean about this page is me. The rest is filled with randomness I find on the web. These wares represent the things I find most worthy. Welcome to the Korean General Store.

On the latest episode of They Actually Made That!? (see previously) by Attaboy, he features some of the most strange and “violent” family games that he has seen. Pie Face(1964) and Cold Feet (1967) are a couple of the dangerously interesting old games.

The anti-Wonka candy factory

In 2011, Magnum photographer Martin Parr visited the Teddy Grays candy factory near Birmingham, England that makes old-fashioned candy with Wonka-esque names — Mint Humbugs, Nutty Brittles, Spearminties. The result is this ultra-charming 20 minute film profile of the company and its candy-making process.

Charmingness evidence, exhibit A: When asked if the company would ever modernize, company director Teddy Gray responds, “Imagine coming to work in the morning and looking at all them faxes, oh no.” Even his modernization references need modernizing.

Mariachi Radiohead Cover Featured In Animated Day Of The Dead Movie Book Of Life

The upcoming animated film Book Of Life has already got people pretty excited. It’s produced by Guillermo Del Toro, it’s got Ron Perlman, and it’s inspired by Day Of The Dead mythology (if anything it might get us one step closer to aGrim Fandango movie), but now there’s a whole other reason to get worked up: The film will feature mariachi and norteño versions of a few popular songs including Radiohead’s “Creep.” The covers are arranged by Gustavo Santaolalla, who also worked on original music for the film.
