Great Holiday Gift Idea - Viking Beard and Helmet


Do you want to be the hit of this year's holiday party?  While everyone else will try to Out-Cosby Sweater (that's my new term) each other, you can be the talk of this year's party with this Viking beard and hat and quite possibly take home a few of the fair lasses without having to hit them on the head with a club, which was only customary standard protocol of the Viking, unfortunately we have "laws" that make this kind of practice "illegal"...(damn lawyers



While federal, state, and local laws will hinder your desire to be a Viking (blame this one again on bureaucracy) this beard and hat will certainly make you look like one.

Steampunk 20" Widescreen Flatpanel Monitor -Computer



Here's another badass gift idea I found on This Is Why I'm Broke.   It's for a vintage victorian style flat panel monitor, wireless mouse and keyboard which is fashioned into a typewriter.  You can choose from different styles such as painted marble, oak, cherry, hard maple, rusty patina or anything else that comes to mind.  This will transport your favorite Steampunk back into the Victorian Ages without the fear and anxiety of catching typhoid fever.

Batman Slanket...Great Holiday Gift Ideas

relaxing, yet always vigilant
     After a long day of fighting the scum of the city, you would want to do nothing more than retire in your manor, have your butler get you a warm refreshing beverage, and catch the latest episode of America's Got Talent.  This Snuggie will help you keep warm during those cold Gotham City winters, but will also keep you vigilant, prepared, and in uniform just in case you get a Bat Signal from the Commissioner.

Conan in NYC All Week

It's so great to see Conan O'Brien back in NYC.  Doing his show at the famed Beacon Theater to a full capacity crowd, it seems like Conan never left for the doomed Tonight Show stint in LA.  It's vintage Conan with the remote comedy sketches, which is what I, like many other fans of the old Late Night Show have missed immensely.  His show airs on TBS at 11 PM/10 PM Central (I think?). Coming upon the halfway point for his visit to NYC   (note  :,(     ) , here are some highlights...

Lawsuit for Ryan Gosling's 'Drive' Claims Movie is "Anti-Semetic"




A woman is suing the producers of 'Drive' and blames the producers..
 "for creating a so-called misleading trailer that promised more "Fast and the Future" type action than the film actually contained,
okay false advertising, kind of like when you expect when a movie starring Clint Eastwood/Lee Marvin to be an action-oriented, carnage-filled violent movie.  But even more striking...
 ....... is talking about the other allegation against the Nicolas Winding Refn-directed, Ryan Gosling -starring film:in addition to misleading, he says that the picture is anti-semitic, as well..."

The One Where An 80's Sitcom Correctly Predicts Muammar Gaddafi's Death/After Life

DeLorean Comes Back...to the Future

Article first published as DeLorean to Make A Comeback......to the Future in 2013 on Technorati.

  
         Great SCOTT! First, Nike releases a sneaker based on the hit 1980’s franchise ‘Back to the Future’. Now another staple from the film, the DeLorean is set to come out in 2013. The Delorean Motor Company (DMC) has announced plans to build an all-electric version of the iconic, stainless steel gull-wing sports car that was made famous in the 80’s franchise. The Humble, Texas based company , which has the rights to the Delorean name, currently sells parts for the original DMC-12 along with restored and updated versions of the car, which have a starting price of $57,500.          
         
       DMC company president, Stephen Wynne saw an opportunity to bring back the Delorean after noticing the success of the Tesla Roadster. Wynne hopes to sell the electric DeLorean starting in 2013, for a price of $90,000. Though this particular model will not need a flux capacitor in order to run, Wynne and DMC teamed up with the aptly-named company, Flux Power. Flux Power, out of Escondido California, is primarily a battery manufacture, but has branched out into development of electric cars.         
   
        Several parts of the car will undergo a redesign in order reduce the weight of the car in to counteract the heavy 32 kWh battery pack that will be used in the car. DeLorean’s unique fiberglass underbody has been replaced with a much lighter, stronger composite. The final weight of the car, with the battery pack, is only 200 pounds more than the original. But with these alterations and redesign, Flux Power CEO Chris Anthony says that “he is aiming for the electric DeLorean to have the same, if not better performance than the conventional version of the car (source: foxnews.com).”

         Development of the electrical DeLorean is continuing, but a prototype has already been tested on both the street and track over the past three months. So far, it takes less than eight seconds to accelerate from 0-60 mph with a 200 hp electric motor. The original design has the four-cylinder engine mounted behind the rear wheels. With the new design, weight distribution and handling will drastically improve over the original with battery packs installed in both the front and rear of the car. Anthony also hopes for a range of 100 miles between charges.

     Where this car is going, you will still need roads (for now). But the good thing is, you won’t need plutonium, or gasoline to run this DeLorean.

'The Avengers' Panel from this past weekend's New York City Comic Con (including Photos and Video)


     I had to go into the IGN Theatre, where The Avengers panel was held, about three hours before the actual event.  I had to sit through Nikita panel (meh), Sony presentation (which had a trailer for the Total Recall reboot and the new Ghost Rider), and The Walking Dead (very bad ass).   After the jump is a professional video of the panel (via bkbntv)   and some photos I shot.

Government to Build 'Data Eye In The Sky' to Potentially Predict Future

      
      

        In the 2002 futuristic action thriller, Minority Report, Tom Cruise is the chief of police force called a "precog" force.  This police force use future visions by mutated humans with precognition abilities that can see the future way in advance.  Through these predictions, the police force has correctly predicted a murder attempt and prevented murder attempts in the city for the next 6 years.  As the New York Times reports, the government may be closer to a technology similar to this, a so called 'Data Eye In the Sky' .

A Grand Time to be a Geek, a retrospective






     The twelve year old me (circa 1990....something) would be amazed with today.  When I was twelve,  the only cable channels of note were ESPN, CNN(Bo-ring), and HBO (which seemed to be a non-stop run of The Karate Kid part III, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Driving Miss Daisy). If you told me there are whole channels solely devoted to such things as Science Fiction (correction....was), Kung-Fu Movies/the Martial Arts, or Gaming/Geek Culture ,   I would call you a liar.  If I wanted to buy an Anime video or rare book that I couldn't find at my local mall's Sam Goody or Waldenbooks (respectively),  I would either have to travel all the way to New York City to a Tower Records (RIP) or Kim's Video.  If you told me that there is something called the internet and that I can get all of these just by sitting on my ass with one click of a mouse, I wouldn't believe you.  Finally, if you told me the twelve year old me that there was a massive event called Comic Con, which brings in the big industry leaders and personalites of comics, graphic novels, anime, video games, television, and movies all into one place, (a place where some companies will launch their new product lines) I would call you full of shit.  An event like this would be few and far between.   Now, it seems like every city has a Comic Con variant of some sort.  Before Comic Con would have been attended by the die hard fanboy( or girl) that could recite every origin story in their respective universe.  Now, it is attended by the casual fan that probably discovered a favorite superhero character from a summer blockbuster.  It is great to be finally accepted.  With what will be a recurring theme to this blog (then vs. now), I will first explore movies.

Great Geek Cinema courtesy of New York City


I will be going to my first Comic Con in New York City later on this week.  Even though the San Diego event is the premiere one in terms of popularity and well........ the fact that it is THE Comic Con (if you say that you're going to Comic Con people will know or assume that you're going to the San Diego event), I'll say New York wins out as the cooler, much nerdier city.  Let San Diego have their Del Tacos and year-round sunny weather.  Here is some great geek cinema courtesy of the Big Apple. The landmarks and their location are include, just in case you have time to check it out.  Much more thorough map (and my initial inspiration for this very posting)...here.



Buzzfeed's Ultimate Nerd Guide to New York City

For anyone swinging by later on this week to New York Comic Con later this week, Buzzfeed has provided a handy map of famous comic book, video game, and movie landmarks in the Big Apple.  Enjoy the New York City Subway System (though I would take caution if you run into ruffians like these) go for a run along the East River, take in a Broadway play , enjoy the sights of a museum,  at the very least, take in one good old fashioned bike joust.   Have a great time this week and leave the protesting to Occupy Wall Street activists.  Map after the jump..

Confessions of a Born Again Apple User

    



       Steve Jobs passed away from pancreatic cancer today at the age of 56.  It's hard to believe that one man came up with so many innovations that are commonplace today.  With people checking into a local bar on Foursquare with their iPhone, while someone else reads the newest comic book on their iPad, or listening to the latest podcast on an iPod,  the Apple line of products are everywhere.  Even harder to fathom is that his  products were once considered the red-headed step child to the other products out there, namely any IBM or Windows based system.  You can say Apple was the HD-DVD to the Blu-Ray, the Sega Master System to the Nintendo Entertainment System, or a more modern example, what Android is to the iPhone.  Here's my relationship with Apple. 




Steve Job's 2005 Stanford Commencement Speech

"Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." - Steve Jobs

RIP Steve Jobs 1955-2011



Months after stepping down as Apple CEO, visionary Steve Jobs passed away today.   Apple posted this statement on the website. 
"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories, and condolences, please email rememberingsteve@apple.com"

Origin of Lost Smoke Monster.....EXPLAINED!

One of the many mysteries of the hit ABC show Lost (e.g. where was the island, are the passengers dead or alive, etc.) have finally been revealed.  The origin.... (wait for it)....


of the SMOKE MONSTER!!!

 The origin has been revealed to originate from (after the jump)
 

 Straight from Evangeline Lilly's Sweet Ass....
 

"One time there was this guy who was really awful to me, and I was really struggling that day, because I had really bad gas. And as a flight attendant, you don't let that go when you're on a plane," she said. "So this guy got under my skin to the point that finally I decided to save it all up, and when I was walking past him and when I got to row 48... I let it rip, right in his face."

I did not think that girls, especially a hot one like this ever farted , ever, at all in public.  I am shocked.  Shocked AND appalled....maybe a little turned on, too..

Kid Discovers the Shocking Ending of Empire Strikes Back for the First Time

I can't imagine what the new generation of Star Wars fan think about the new Star Wars movie, especially now that they don't have to wait a decade plus for an underwhelming set of prequels.  Here's one kid's reaction to the shocking reveal towards the end of Empire Strikes Back..


Arrested Development is BACK!!

The show that launched the career of Will Arnett and Micheal Cera and spawned a new breed of situational comedy is back!   As Jason Bateman tweeted...

Oh Adam Sandler, What are you doing?!?

In Funny People, Adam Sandler played a comedian (which was pretty much a caricature of himself, in my honest opinion) that sells out and plays the ridiculous Hollywood movies that are hollow, cheap on laughs, but do well in the Box Office.



 And here we are in 2011, where Adam Sandler.... stars in that exact same movie...

Conan........the Professor.....


     After a tough life which started when the ruthless warlord Thulsa Doom destroyed his village and killed his parents, Conan was bent on a life of revenge.  After many years of being confined to the Wheel of Pain, and many more years of earning the job title, "the Barbarian"  (duties which comprised mainly of crushing his enemy, seeing them driven before him, and hearing the lamentations of the women....you know, the typical Barbarian job role),  it was refreshing to see Conan was granted a tenure track position as a professor... at least according to a website for Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland that was hacked....

Lessons Learned from 80's Musical Montages

Despite what you read in the history books, Sylvester Stallone and 80's synth-rock can be attributed to the fall of Communism.
        

            
               Growing up in the 80’s, you were constantly bombarded with important lessons. From public service announcements advertisements to cartoons, you were constantly exposed to a  lesson of some sort.  This trend continued with movies of the day, more specifically, during the musical montage portion of the movie.  It is the portion of a movie where the protagonist goes through a pronounced change.  In real time, it could be in the span of a long period of time (days, weeks, months), but to the moviegoer, this could be during the span of 3-4 minutes, or however long the song is.  So let’s find out these integral life lessons.

5 Memorable Cinematic Moments Thanks to Queen and Freddie Mercury


 Google commemorates the birthday of late Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury's with a colorful Google Doodle.  Mercury would have turned 65 today.




Since I grew up in the 80's, the heyday of Queen was before my time.  My limited exposure to Queen was in the songs they provided for movie soundtracks.   Freddie Mercury and Queen's signature rock operatic sound provided a very distinctive classic, yet modern sound to any movie.   Here are some notable examples:

Dreamy Ryan Gosling Breaks up Fight

An amateur video was captured of a fight in the St Mark section of Manhattan. It all started when,( ahh who gives a shit? ).....Who but dreamy Notebook star, Ryan Gosling to diffuse the situation..

" As a number of other people try to tear two quarrelling men apart, Gosling suddenly appears and walks toward the altercation on 8th Street in the East Village. He drops his belongings on the street and manages to separate the two men while trying to peacefully play referee"

And with half a hug, Ryan Gosling was able to stop a fight. Half a hug.... Who knows what a whole hug may cure or solve:
  • The Trillion Dollar National Debt
  • Most, if not all types of cancer
  • World Hunger


5.9 Earthquake in the East Coast

Well, there was a 5.9 Earthquake on the East Coast (aka probably a typical day in California)...


"An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.9 struck near Washington, D.C., the U.S. Geological Survey said."

"A couple of minor injuries and some minor structural damage have been reported in Washington, following Tuesday's earthquake, according to Schlosser...."

Photos of the devastation have been coming in. Please be warned, this is a disturbing image....

It's a tough time for everyone, even Superheroes!!!

Superheroes, usually the ones fighting crime, sometimes find themselves on the other side of the law. Take this instance where a man dressed up like a Ninja Turtle robbed a Wendy's:

http://guyism.com/humor/ninja-turtle-robs-a-wendys-in-wisconsin.html

"ninja turtle robber 262x214 Ninja Turtle robs a Wendys in Wisconsin

"Police say that a man clad in a mask like the one pictured left held up the Wendy’s last week.According to the police report, two men were responsible for the robbery with one dressed up in the aforementioned Ninja Turtle attire along with a very un-turtlelike blue sweatshirt"

It would have been funnier had it been a Pizza Hut or Papa John's.


We even find Spiderman in on the action:


"...The man who aimed the gun at the clerk was wearing the Spider-Man mask. The other robber can be seen wearing a blue mask in the video..."


J Jonah Jameson always said that Spiderman was a menace..

I guess I shouldn't be surprised if I see in the headlines a guy dressed up as Green Lantern robbing a Home Depot or someone in a Captain America get-up embezzling funds out of a non-profit organization..
