I have to say it would be cool to have real wallpaper (the kind you put on your walls) adorned with the a pattern made up of “The Frontier” seen in The Last Starfighter. For now a desktop wallpaper will do.
UPDATE: You can now buy a high-res poster of this image here.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a Jurassic Park post, and even longer since I released a geeky wallpaper (not counting train maps), so this fits the bill nicely. This wallpaper recreates the desktop seen in the first film.
Request: If there are any video-savvy folks out there, I was hoping for some help in recreating the animation from the film for a looping YouTube video. I can provide this backdrop, and several overlays (for the alarms). You’d need to scoop the audio and compile the image sequence, and create a lengthy loop (something like this, but not necessarily 10 hours!). Email me if you are interested. I was just going to do a GIF but the alarm beep audio is crucial. UPDATE: Someone has volunteered! Hope to have a looping video for you all to enjoy soon. Also I was pointed to this video as well, check it out.
Above is the fullscreen 4:3 ratio, below is the widescreen 16:9 ratio.
I have to admire the design of this desktop and its usage in the film. So much information is present, which helped signify a lot was going wrong. You don’t get bogged-down in information overload at all. Genius.
Here are some wallpapers depicting the official flag of Brain from Pinky and the Brain. At least, that’s what I remember it looking like from memory – can’t find any online reference. If anyone has a screen capture of this flag, please send it to me.
If I recall correctly, this is a flag Brain had used in one of his many schemes for world domination. And if I am wrong, it probably would’ve looked like this anyways. Just a name and portrait, the mark of a narcissist. All hail Brain.
Didn’t set out to do wallpapers, this was for a desktop flag idea. I will post that eventually.
EDIT: updated the images so they aren’t as noisy as the top image
In the meantime one giant widescreen 2560×1600 image, a large 1600×1200 standard-def image, and an iPhone 960×640 image. Click to enlarge:
I really need to grab the DVDs of this show pronto. It featured, among other things, my all-time favorite sound effect: whenever Pinky or Brain got hit (or belted each other), the sound effect was like two phone books being slammed together (or one being slammed closed). Hilarious Foley work.
