Something to Do: Movies

Nola and the Clones sounds interesting but seems to only exist on IMDB as a minimalist entry. Sadly Krampus, a movie about a boy who unleashes a Christmas Demon, seems to be a real film. The movie that does look interesting this week isn’t Sci-Fi or Fantasy at all; A Royal Night Out is about […]

Something to Watch: Discs

Movies have Cooties this week, about grade school zombies and the teachers who are trying to escape them. This comedy/horror film had mixed critical reviews and low box office, but a lot of that was due to the fact that it only showed up on a handful of screens in the US. TV has The […]

The Baseballs

The Baseballs are a German Rockabilly band with attitude, and if you are not already familiar with them you should be! They already have a huge library of music to their credit, and I can’t wait to see what they do next. The first track here is Umbrella, the second is Chasing Cars, the third […]

Something to Stream: The Expanse episode 1

At the Syfy channel web site you can stream The Expanse pilot episode right now, without having to wait for the series premier on the channel itself. Earth, Mars, and the Belt are on the ragged edge of war, with the prize up for grabs the vast resources of the Asteroid Belt. This one looks […]

Anomalisa trailer

Charlie Kaufman wrote the screenplay for Anomalisa, an animated film that has won a number of important awards on the film festival circuit and received an assortment of critical praise. If you don’t recognize the name, he also wrote the screenplays of a couple of other movies I really liked, Being John Malkovich and The […]

Silly: Age of Ultron Parody

When I watched the Mocking Jay Part 2 parody trailer the other day it cracked me up, so I dug around the site some more. In the process I found this fun Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron music video parody. I like this groups attitude and style, and hope they will keep creating these. The […]

Where is the ISS?

The ISS, or International Space Station, is very easy to see from the surface of the Earth using just the Mark I Eyeball, providing you know where to look, and depending on whether or not you will have clear sky’s for viewing. There are a number of resources available for knowing where to look; the […]

Something to Do: Movies

On Wednesday we get Victor Frankenstein as told from Igor’s perspective, and The Good Dinosaur, an animated Disney/Pixar presentation. Both films are obviously taking advantage of the holiday weekend to pack in a couple of extra days worth of box office receipts to bolster their opening weekend take, but there are a few good things […]

Something to Watch: Discs

Movies has American Ultra, a wonderfully twisted little spy thriller comedy that everyone should watch at least once. I don’t know anything about Jim Henson’s Turkey Hollow beyond the fact that it is a family friendly fantasy film made for TV and aired on the Lifetime network. But as someone who likes all things Muppet, […]

Lindsey Stirling

Lindsey Stirling has a great sound and a large range; if you haven’t been listening so far, now is the time to start. The first track from tonight’s collection is Roundtable Rival, a very nice Steampunk kind of song (her “Shatter Me” is also quite SteamPunk). The next is Dragon Age, which goes straight to […]
