LOST season 6 countdown

Friday, July 31, 2009


After more than a decade of squandering potential, FOX has gotten it's head out of it's a-hole and...hired SIR RIDLEY FUCKING SCOTT to direct a new ALIEN movie! As you may know, Scott directed the first ALIEN back in 1979. It was only his second feature after The Duelists (kick ass), and a handful of sweet ass commercials. Since then he has gone on to direct a whole bunch of amazing shit such as Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise, 1492, G.I. Jane (moving on, moving on...), White Squall, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, and Kingdom of Heaven (don't bother with anything but the director's cut), among many others. Truly one of the greatest directors of our age.

And he storyboards his own movies! Well!

Word on the tubes is that this will be a prequel to his original film and is intended to reboot the franchise. After all the AVP bullshit i didn't bother to see this is a surprisingly smart move from the studio. (now if they can just get his brother Tony to take an early retirement...). Naturally I am getting all my facts from Variety.

Here is an example of some his earlier commercial work. If you are old or nerdy you might recognize it.

Ben Folds and William Shatner - In Love

The previous Shatner Poetry reading made me want to watch this, and share it with you, dear nerd.

Ben Folds and William Shatner - In Love

Shatner Does Palin's Poetry.

Palin's final speech was so beautiful, they had to get a master to read it properly.

Mr. William Shatner.

LOST Cast Interview

A nifty little interview with Richard, Ben and Hurly. All those throw pillows are cracking me up!

Michael Emerson (Ben) kind of creeps me out at the 3:25 mark. "Egyptian stuff maybe. (creepy pause) That would be niiiicccceee!"

Korg DS-10 Plus.

Okay, everybody pile into the wayback machine.

*waaaaayback* in March of 2008, I wrote a small post about "game" that was coming to the Nintendo DS, the Korg DS-10, which replicates the Korg MS-10 analog synth. At the time it seemed like a neat idea, but I wasn't into taking a few more semesters wroth of Japanese to crack the language barrier that I would need to use it. Then they released it in the US, so I gobbled it up and made a few tracks.
I've been really happy with it, and I've thought about buying a second DS [dorky]because they can interface with each other over wi-fi and I could do separate channel outputs and do different effects on the high and low parts[/dorky]. But just recently XSEED announced the DS-10 Plus! What's so different about it? Let's ask an awkward Japanese guy!

The DS-10 Plus will be available in Japan on September 17th. It does not have a U.S. release date yet. Also, you'll need a DSi (the newer hardware) to take full advantage of the updates.

Xbox Live : Battlefield 1943

I used to play a ton of Battlefield 1942 back in college, and now it's on Xbox as Battlefield 1943! I only had a chance to play for about an hour last night, and the whole experience was plagued with connection issues so I'm not going to do a review, but here's the GiantBomb review of the game. These guys are great by the way, nerd approved, see their madness at giantbomb.com

Jack Conte - Impression Video Song

It's not a music video, it's a video song. This guy records every noise he's making on camera, and then syncs it back up with the song to make a music video. Impressive. Most Impressive. He uses a lot of Electro-Harmonix pedals, which are a favorite of mine, and this video makes me want a Memory Man.
