Blockbuster Offers Summer Escape Pass


By Shane McGlaun

I remember when I was in school, the summer was all I waited for all year and three weeks into it I would be so bored that I almost (ALMOST) wished school would start back up. You can only watch so many movies and play so many video games in one day.

I bet that there are some people out there right now wishing they had something to do. Blockbuster has a good way for you to spend $10 and keep yourself entertained for a week. The company is offering a summer escape pass that sells for $10 and is good for a week. The passes are being sold for a limited time and allow customers to rent unlimited games and moves over the week.

Blockbuster Survey Reveals Most Popular Sci-Fi Stars


By Shane McGlaun

I was hooked on sci-fi the first time I saw Star Wars on video when I was a kid. I missed the first two in the theaters, but I saw Return of the Jedi like 18 times in one weekend. The New Star Trek film starts this week and to celebrate Blockbuster polled sci-fi fans to find the most popular starship captain.

According to the poll, the most popular captain was Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly. Following him were James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, Han Solo, and William Adama. Seriously, Picard is a better captain than Reynolds and Kirk, and he had all those catchy phrases like “Make it So.”

Star Trek Already a Hit Movie at Fandango


By Shane McGlaun

If you are a movie fan, you know that the Star Trek film is set to launch this week. This should be one of the coolest films of the summer. At first, I didn’t like Sylar from Heroes as Spock, but with those crazy eyebrows, the dude makes a good Spock.

If you want to see the movie on opening weekend, you had better buy your tickets now. According to Fandango, the movie has sold out in more than 100 theater times around the country. The online ticket seller says that ticket sales for Star Trek alone make up 81% of its daily sales.

Video Friday: Killer Bean Forever Is Awesomely, Awesomely Bad

Killer Bean Fever

By Evan Ackerman

A few years back, Jeff Lew was the lead animator on The Matrix Reloaded (he also worked on Kung Pow: Enter the Fist, the best scene of which involves a CGI ninja cow). What’s he been doing since then? His very own, feature length animated film. And when I say “his very own,” I mean that Jeff has done everything from the script to the final renders all by himself. It’s taken him 4 years working 14 hours a day, 7 days a week, and here’s the trailer. It’s called Killer Bean Forever, and it’s about killer beans:

No specific release date yet, but it’s reportedly almost done. I can’t wait.

Fishtank Friday: FishBird TankCage

Bird Fish Tank

By Evan Ackerman

If we keep fish as pets, why can’t fish keep birds as pets? While you’re pondering that, try and figure out who looks more confused in the picture: the fish, or the birds.

Video Friday: How To Taunt A Polar Bear

By Evan Ackerman

If you haven’t seen this yet, well… It’s damn funny (for everyone except the poor chick in the seal outfit, anyway). Next time I go to the zoo, I know what I’m wearing.

Video Thursday: If Real Life Was Like An Internet Chatroom/Forum

By Evan Ackerman

Thrusday’s not quite Friday. So, wasting time away until five o’clock strikes is harder to justify. Still, we say “To hell with productivity!”, these videos are hot.

If you haven’t run across them yet, these two vids are very well done and show what might happen if people acted in real life as they do on the internet. Just like the internet, both of the videos have some substantially NSFW content.
