Velociraptor Keeps It Real

Regular readers of this blog are familiar with Velociraptors and the threat they pose to modern society.

However, sometimes they can assimilate into the entertainment industry and rap on top of Stevie Wonder hooks.

Cal Marching Band Gets l33t

Check the sheer geeked out awesome fest that is the Cal Bears Marching Band running a Video Game themed half time show waaaaay back in the early 90s.

Love the Tetris shapes and Mario Montage.

I’m still LMAO!

Superman vs Batman

My friends and I have been having the same fan-boy argument since high school. If it came down to it, who would win in a fight: Superman or Batman?

Superman

Superman is the freaking man of steel. He’s faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, he can leap tall buildings in a single bound and still get home in time to make out with Lois. He has superhuman strength, has a bachelor pad in Antarctica named the Fortress of Solitude, can throw X-Ray and Heat vision out of his eyes, posses nigh-invulnerability, was based in part on old and new testament archetypes (part Jesus, part Moses) and he can fly. He literally can’t lose, right?

Batman

Batman

is the Dark Knight of Gotham City. After witnessing the brutal murder of his parents, Bruce Wayne dedicated his life to ridding Gotham City of crime. Batman basically cowboyed up and put his family’s financial resources to make him the world’s best detective. He is a master of the martial arts, can think on his feet and out muscle much larger opponents, has a utility belt full of insane, crime-stopping gadgets, knows all kinds of crazy science and is so smart he makes Sherlock Holmes look like George W. Bush. He is also demonstrably insane. He’s killed at least two Robins (that we know of) and has no problems offing children in order to pursue his misguided (arguably fascistic) dream of a crime free America.

So who would win in a fight? They’ve fought each other a bunch of times, most famously, perhaps in Miller’s Magnum Opus, The Dark Knight Returns, with mixed results. I think Superman takes it, no contest. But Bruce does have a Kryptonite Ring to take Clark down in case of emergency.

What do you think, who wins in a fight, the Man of Steel or the Dark Knight?

Morgan Spurlock Finds Osama Bin Laden!

And gets the whole thing on film.

Well, that’s the rumor, anyway.

Spurlock, of Super Size Me Fame, recently screened 15 minutes of his new film, “Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden” to prospective buyers in Berlin.

The Weinstein Company quickly bought the pic, which chronicles the intrepid film maker’s quest to find and interview Osama Bin Laden. No one is saying if he actually achieves this goal, and the studio and film maker plan to keep mum until the flick premieres in Sundance early next year.

What do you think? Is this real or the greatest media stunt since War of the Worlds?

Robotic Super Soldiers Are Real!

This –

– just went from science fiction to science fact. Check out this video from CNN that shows how the army of one just became the army of one super strong robotic killing machine.

I like the faceless robo-suits at 2:38. Although, I have to say, if I get to power a robotic exoskeleton and have super strength and super killing powers (and, I also assume, super love-making abilities) then I’m joining up in America’s Robot Army, pronto.

Caught this over at Popular Mechanics and it blew my mind.

Looks like this isn’t science fiction anymore.

Unreal Video Art

Caught this vid over at GeekStudent.

Apparently this project employed 4 video projectors and cover a 750 meter town hall. I don’t speak metric, but that sounds pretty big.

Love the T-Rex. Hate the Euro-trash techno.
