Revolver Map


Hadron Rock

Sometimes you just have to go with the Boson Sonata or its nearest equivalent. The folks at the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN particle physics research center (near Geneva) have come up with an interesting tool. The SOUNDS OF SCIENCE project has been building towards the goal of converting the pathtracks of the particles […]

Mars Water and Mars Movie

Yes, this is a geek post; deal with it! One of the major results the various Mars orbiters and rovers have been trying to work out is whether or not the red planet has ever harbored life, and one of the preconditions of life is a water supply. At least our kind of carbon based […]

Something to Do: Movies

While I have never been a fan of M. Daze Shamarama, finding all of his previous works yawnworthy, the trailer for the live action version of The Last Airbender looks really good. I also enjoyed the award winning animation series it is based on, Avatar: The Last Airbender. And yes, I do watch select programs […]

Something to Watch: DVDs

There are a number of good choices this week, starting with one of my favorite TV shows: Eureka Season 3.5. Another good show from the same channel has its season 1 release as well, Warehouse 13. This is just in time to catch up with the previous season before the new seasons launch on July […]

Green Hornet trailer

When the original Green Hornet TV series used to air, in Japan and China it was rebroadcast under the title The Kato Show, because as far as everyone in Asia was concerned, Bruce Lee was the star of the program. Looking at the trailer for the new Green Hornet Movie it looks like they might […]

WB Futurama, Martian Chronicles

Welcome Back, Futurama! Last night they ran the first two brand new episodes, and I have to say they were every bit as funny as ever. That makes sense, since they are now part of the Comedy Central family of programs, which they alluded to right off the bat at the beginning of the first […]

Red trailer

Some of the best movies going are graphic novels (comic books if you prefer) turned into film, and another great one is coming down the pike. Red was a 66 page graphic novel written by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner that will be hitting the big screen around October 15th. It has an amazing cast […]

Arthur 3: La Guerre des Deux Mondes

Luc Besson strikes again! I still haven’t gotten to see his Les aventures extraordinaires d’Adèle Blanc-Sec, although the fact that clicking on the British flag on its home page gives you English subtitles on the trailer and web site encourages me that it might get released here soon. But in the meantime he will be […]

Robocup 2010

Have you been following the action on Robocup 2010? Robocup is taking place in Singapore this year, with a hoard of soccer playing robots from all over the world competing against each other. The organizations goal is to be able to field a team of humanoid robots that can beat their human opponents in the […]

Something to Do: Movies

There isn’t a new genre release this week, but Knight and Day looks like it could be silly fun. As near as I can tell from the trailers it is the same film as Killers with different actors; maybe I should see the first half of one, then switch to the other theater screening room […]
