I woke up Friday morning to a direct message from the folks over at Bing that I had won a contest to the Sundance Film Festival this week. Completely unbelieving, I sent my phone number and email address and before I know it, I was signing an affidavit that stated I did not work for Microsoft and would not hold Microsoft responsible if I break my neck in a skiing accident. I ran to the bank, got the form notarized and started searching for a traveling companion.
I must admit that I’m not entirely sold on The Avengers yet. I like the individual Iron Man and Captain America movies, but the idea of putting those two superheroes together plus more (including Scarlet Johanns0n, who still hasn’t convinced me she’s a good Black Widow) makes me rather uninterested.
If you happen to love Star Trek and its technology and have a little know -how, you could build your very own tricorder. But even better, if you build a tricorder, you could also win $7 million from Qualcomm.
Happy Friday the 13th! In honor of what could very well be a spooky day, I’ve decided to post a video that serves as a prequel for the upcoming season for of the UK’s Being Human.
Artist and illustrator Michael j. DiMotta has put together a beautiful Game of Thrones poster series, featuring the Houses of Westeros, Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch and Daenerys Targaryen.
I truly had my doubts about a reboot of Spiderman, especially considering that Sam Raimi’s trilogy of films weren’t all that long ago. And I just really liked Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. However, after Andrew Garfield got emotional at the 2011 Comic Con about being able to play the iconic hero, my heart softened.
There has been a lot of buzz about the indie game AMY all over the net. And after watching the following trailer, I think it’s definitely one of the first must-haves of the year.
It’s been an ongoing battle between Star Trek and Star Wars these days. Both Carrie Fisher and William Shatner have jumped into the fray. George Takei even tried to call for peace between the two factions and even offered up the idea of declaring war on a far more deserving foe: Twilight. Unfortunately, William Shatner responded today with a resounding “no.”
I got a little bored over the weekend and even a little Skyrim’d out (is that possible?) so I thought I’d go hunting around online (mostly Deviant Art) for some cool fan art. I came across a lot of great Doctor Who fan art and thought I would share. Enjoy!
