Stuxnet Explanation

This video is a very good explanation of the most dangerous virus released so far. The sad part is, your tax dollars may have paid for it, depending on where you live. And if you do live there, don’t be surprised when it comes home to roost, as all such things do. Having a good […]

What about Jupiter?

There have never been that many moments of actual footage of Jupiter videos or individual photos of the planet, because no physical camera has ever returned from there for us to develop the film. But this compilation of digital images returned to Earth over the last handful of decades and assembled by some of the […]

Something to Do: Movies

Nothing of interest coming out this week, so it is a good time to catch up on something previously released you might have missed. I will be seeing Hugo myself, since life was a bit too hectic to catch it this past weekend what with the holiday and all.

Something to Watch: DVDs

There are several interesting movies this time around, starting with Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, a twisted little comedy starring Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk. Every variation of a Deliverance movie you have ever seen, with the twist that the Good Ole Boys are under attack by suicidal yuppies. The other quality movie for the […]

The next track is Memento, followed by Justice; that should be enough to tell you whether or not this band is worth […]

We Lost Anne McCaffery

I don’t normally do two blog entries on the same day, but I had to say goodby to Anne McCaffery, author of so many quality books, including the Dragonriders series, The Ship Who series, and so much more. This event is hardly a surprise, as she was 85 and had been missing things like Dragoncon […]

Brave trailer

Pixar is setting up to do it again, this time with an animation by the name of Brave from the Disney stable. Here is the first trailer I have been able to find, and I am looking forward to seeing how they manage to pull off Brave, even if it does look a lot like […]
