Star Trek Wine

According to Radio Times, there are now a series of three different wines with Star Trek labels on them. Named after three fan favorite TOS episodes, The Trouble with Tribbles, Mirror, Mirror and The City on the Edge of Forever, each sports a label image reminiscent of their story. Radio Times is a UK publication, […]

H.P.Lovecraft Images

101 pictures of C’Thulhu? Yep, not the band, but images from the books written by the guy they named themselves after, have been collected up over at The Lovecratfs Man. I have played with the big green guy a bit myself (OK, sometimes he’s red), here is an image and an animation I put together…

Operator Please

If you are not already a fan of this Australian Indi band you should check them out, because Operator Please has some tasty music. My favorite track by them is Song About Ping Pong, but all their songs are good. Their official home page seems to have evaporated so they may not be a band […]

Star Wars Filibuster, now with animation

While I am not a Parks and Recreation fan, I did enjoy the Star Wars filibuster that Patton Oswalt ran, and somebody in Europe has built the perfect animation for it. OK, maybe in Europe and maybe not, there was a whole question about not being able to upload it from a specific country. This […]

Something to Do: Movies, 31May13

This week we get the Smith family in After Earth, the second movie this summer to show planet Earth abandoned by humanity. These is another one that looks interesting this time around Now You See Me, about stage magicians who pull off robberies in the middle of their act and give the money to the […]

Something to Watch: DVDs, 28May13

Not much in genre movies this time beyond AE: Apocalypse Earth and Battle Earth, both direct to DVD. The first at least has actors I like and an actual web page.

We do much better in TV, with Doctor Who: Series Seven, Part Two coming out. Looking around Amazon I found a listing for the […]

Giant Robots for sale

They are a little pricy at 1.35 million dollars each baseline (options cost you more), but in the first month they went on sale they took orders for 3,000 of them. Called the Kuratas after their designer, Kogoro Kurata, when you order yours from their web page you can even have it customized with the […]

Single Pixel 3D Imaging

Science News reports that a team at the University of Glasgow has set up four single pixel detectors and used gear normal to a high school science lab to create 3D images, fully mapping the test object. Why is this important? Because unlike a 20 million pixel camera array, single pixel detectors can operate over […]

Carrot Crazy

This is the Senior Thesis film produced at Ringling College of Art and Design by Dylan Vanwormer and Logan Scelina. Yes, it is a bit silly, but where animation is concerned that is often the point. These kind of things inspire me to plug away at my own animation projects, even though mine never seem […]

About Time trailer

There are some moments you want to last forever, and some you don’t even want to live through once. The author of About Time was also a writer on Blackadder, and did a few other RomCom flicks like Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’s Diary, and Love Actually. This appears to be his first venture into SF/F, […]
