Oscar Nominations 2009
The Oscar nominations came out this week, and there were a few surprises.
Best Motion Picture:
At USA Today they had 4 of the new toys coming out for JJ Abrams Star Trek this spring. Must have Communicator!
Also, The Obamassiah has a toy! Holy shit! Who knew the President was such a bad ass??
News of the Weird
Wow. I mean, wow. I've heard of people being born with extra fingers and things, but this is just....wow.
A woman has been decapitated by a fellow student at Virginia Tech, the scene of the worst school shooting in US history in 2007.
They say she was decapitated with a knife. Not a machete, not a broadsword, a knife. This guy had enough time to decapitate a woman with a regular knife and people watching. Our world scares me.
Okay, I'll admit I really dig audio books, podcasts and anything I can listen to at my lesiure on my IPod. Now these people at Pendant Productions do radio dramas in the flavour of old radio broadcasts. The really cool things is that they're not bad at all. Kinda fun actually. Considering they do not to my knowledge have a license to do these and make no money besides donations, they're still worth giving a listen to. Their current dramas include:
Superman: The Last Son of Krypton
Batman: The Ace of Detectives
Wonder Woman: Champion of Themyscira
Supergirl: Lost Daughter of Krypton
Catwoman: Queen of Thieves
Star Trek: Defiant
Star Wars: Blue Harvest
James Bond: To the End
Indiana Jones and the Well of Life
Coolest of all, the "Big 3" of the superheroes have had two crossovers.
All of them are well worth a listen to.
In the, "Why the Hell Do the Japanese Get Cooler Trailers?" front. Here are the new Japanese trailers for Watchmen, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Terminator: Salvation.
