If you’re a true Whovian you already have your Saturday night planned out: feed your cats while listening to the most recent Nerdist podcast, clean your figurines mounted throughout your home and then sit and wait to watch the Doctor Who season 7 series premier: Asylum of the Daleks. If you are not a Whovian, then you can Dalek my balls! Back to you true Whos…if you are incredibly anxious for the season premier and cannot wait for Saturday, I recommend checking out the new mini web series Pond Life. Pond Life does 2 things: (1) show the Pond’s (Amy and Rory) life when their not with the Doctor, and (2) the web series shows quick clips of Doctor Who Season 7. The episodes are pretty short, but they do enough to hold Whovians over until this Saturday (September, 1st), when Doctor Who season 7 premiers! Three episodes of Pond … Continue reading
Let’s face it people. Most of us spend our free time at work checking-in on our fantasy sports teams. “Us” of course excludes hardcore nerds, many women and guys who were in a league once but never adjusted their team (and probably auto-drafted), thus not being allowed in any future leagues. But again, the rest of “us”…fantasy league addicts. The problem with being a fantasy sports addict as opposed to a heroin addict is that when you lose at fantasy sports you have to live with the pain. When you lose with heroin you feel nothing. So naturally, fantasy sport addicts will try to do everything they possibly can to get updated information on player’s injuries, city’s weather reports, the state of the playing field, the team’s weekly motivation, if the players go to the bathroom just before they play (in horse racing this is sometimes an indicator of how … Continue reading
Babes and booms. Big booms. Former Miss USA, Tara Conner, and explosive expert, Rene Diamante, host the high-octane web series, Kaboom. The Yahoo Screen original series asks Rene to blow up all types of common objects such as ATM machines, vending machines and golf bags. Rene delivers big time by producing many “Oh S***!” moments. Each video is shot with slow-motion cameras from multiple angles and runs about 3 minutes long. The slow-motion is perfect for capturing the eye-candy: Tara Conner. Oh, and the items going Kaboom are pretty cool in slow-mo, as well. Check out the most recent video of Tara and Rene destroying a vending machine.
I am a Jerry fan. His self-titled television show, Seinfeld, changed my perspective on life and how I interpret the world around me. I am not alone in my passion for Seinfeld, however, I am a part of a smaller group who actually thinks that Jerry was the best character on the show. Okay, before you freak out…read me out. The 3 Stages of, and to, Seinfeld Stage #1: When people first start watching Seinfeld they are immediately drawn to the exaggerated and wacky Kramer. He’s wild and fun. Having Kramer as your favorite character is like having Michelangelo as your favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. It’s easy to enjoy funny words, big sounds and weird things. Nunchucks…am I right? Stage #2: After one gets past the wildness which is Kramer, they immediately move to the eccentric, over-thinking George Costanza. George Costanza, or “Can’t-standz-ya” as he is sometimes known, thinks … Continue reading
When someone mentions Tom Hanks we instantly recall the following: Forrest Gump and it’s many great lines such as: “But you ain’t got no legs, Lieutenant Dan,” “Seat’s taken…can’t sit here” (not actually Tom hank’s line) and of course, “Mama always said ‘life’s like a box of chocolates.’” Saving Private Ryan and the scene where Hanks has been shot down yet still shoots his pistol defiantly at a Nazi tank. Philadelphia and his emotional stares in the court room. Big. Every scene in Big. Man, I wanted to play on one of those floor foot pianos! Also…”what’s so fun about playing with a building?” We think Tom Hanks and we think, Tom Hanks’ movies. The web series, Electric City, is clearly an attempt to change our perceptions of who Tom Hanks is. Rather than think “movie star”, I believe Hanks wants fans to think “creator.” Hanks has produced and directed … Continue reading
In honor of a summer filled with great superhero movies (The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man so far), which will conclude with the sure to be epic The Dark Knight Rises, I thought we should take a look at a new web series which just recently debuted at last week’s San Diego Comic Con. To best explain the new superhero themed web series, Save the Supers, from the mind of Sandeep Parikh, (The Guild actor and The Legend of Neil creator), watch this brief interview of Merman…I mean Sandeep…I mean…oh just watch! SPIKE Save the Supers Clip At Comic-Con www.spike.com Spike Full Episodes Spike Video Clips Spike on Facebook Save the Supers was actually written many years ago by Sandeep Parikh and Ben Benjamin. The Office meets superheroes show was actually put together before the Steve Carell Office had aired, according to Benjamin. The idea of a comedy documentary-esk … Continue reading
