The natives get restless when I don’t post worthless links.

When staff at the Medway Maritime Hospital gave him a pen and paper in the hope he would write his name, he drew a grand piano.

Experimental Gameplay. Fun little flash games.
Early Reviews Of New ‘Star Wars’ Are Positive. Hope continues to build…
Natalie Portman Is Bald. Yet still hot.
“Scientology is rooted in strict scientific principles, such as the measurement of engrams in the brain by the E-Meter,” Kurz said. “Scientology uses strictly scientific methodologies to undo the damage done 75 million years ago by the Galactic Confederation’s evil warlord Xenu—we offer our preclear followers procedures to erase overts in the reactive mind. Conversely, Fictionology is essentially just a bunch of make-believe nonsense.”

Site was down earlier for unknown reasons. I should probably look into getting a backup of this site.
Fire - Can of Coke and a Chocolate Bar. Next time I have an hour to burn ( Heh heh. I made a pun.) I can try this.
Looks Like Batman Can Beat Up Superman. This guy says exactly what I was saying to everyone else after the latest photo of Superman in costume was released. On a related note, yet another Batman Begins poster has been released. I think this could be the best one yet.
Penguins in Airport Security. How cute.

Pac-Man Hat. How cool is this? Imagine if they had another version as a motorcycle helmet. I’d be drivin’ all over the divider lines gobbling them up.
Movie Gadget Friday: The Machine from Contact. Contact has to to be one of my favorite movies. Not exactly ground-breaking or innovative in any particular sense, but all around it’s a very solid film. I’m linking to this entry to point out comment #5, which brings up some interesting points in comparing the book (which I haven’t read) to the movie. Reading what the commenter says has me wanting to read the book.
The motivation wasn’t just “hi, how’s you doin’ time to go back now” - they want to know “God” and they thought our race has some special connection so they want to examine us to find out. They ï¿½have faithï¿½ in a greater being, and after the trip, so does Ellie (her major character arch in the book ï¿½ from not believing in God because He took her Dad away from her when she was young to ï¿½if these super advanced aliens believe in something greater than themselves, what am I doing not believingï¿½)

Follow-up on a previous post, looks like Schrader’s version of Exorcist: The Beginning will be getting a theatrical release after all. Shame I’ve never seen the original or I might be more excited about this.

Volume two of Flight is out soon. I previous mentioned the first volume in an earlier post, but never got around to getting it. Maybe I’ll get off my lazy butt and actually check it out this time. They’re also having a gallery show at Nucleus, some gallery I didn’t even know existed in Alhambra on Main St.
The new Nokia 8800 is sexy. I want.

Johansen Creates DRM-Free Interface to iTunes. Amazing that someone could actually make this, but I doubt it’s gonna stick around for long.

Will Wright Presents Spore… and a New Way to Think About Games. This is just amazing. The game sounds like everything Peter Molyneux has been attempting.

I’m such a nerd that I looked up “poached eggs“. I don’t think I’ve ever actually had any poached eggs. I always get either scrambled or over-easy.
I wasn’t aware of this before, but apparently Exorcist: The Beginning went through some very drastic changes during production. The movie was originally directed by Paul Schrader, had been completely done and cut. Yet when it was viewed by the studio, they didn’t like it at all and hired Renny Harlin to completely reshoot the movie. Bloody News has an exclusive review of the Schrader version. I’m really interested on getting my hands on both to get a good comparison of two directors working with the same script.
