Lightning once struck a brilliant goofball 14-year-old and a stuffy button-down office worker, causing them to switch bodies. The results of this accident are 1) a pubescent teenager somewhere who is good at accounting and backgammon, and 2) Kurt Braunohler.
Shot in 3-D, ‘Metallica Through the Never’ is set to be released on Aug. 9, almost a year after the Vancouver concert they filmed for the project. Written and directed by Nimrod Antal of ‘Predators’ fame, this is poised to be an amazing musical and cinematic experience. An official spokesperson for the project said:
Featuring dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography, the immersive 360-degree show creates a mind-bending, ear-shattering mirror image of the destruction and chaos of Trip’s journey. ‘Metallica Through the Never’’s state-of-the-art 3D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously, engulfs audiences in one of the most innovative and exciting cinematic experiences ever imagined.
Check out this sneak peak of what to expect from the movie! Make sure to turn that bad boy on HD (720p / 1080p)--that is unless your computer or internet connection is awesomeness-impaired.
I don' know about everyone else, but I'm a huge Metallica fan and personally cannot wait to see this in theatres!
This comic, created by The Oatmeal, is both funny and touching. It may impel thoughts about owning pets that are not often easy to consider. But the comic implies an awareness that it's important to love--even if you know you're going to lose that thing you love--because you benefit more from having loved it than you lost when you lost it, and that thing deserved the love you gave it while it was here.
Sorry if that sounded sappy--this comic also has fart jokes.
Charlie LeDuff is a good man. Not many people could find a way to eat cat food in support of the elderly, but LeDuff did. He even thanked his editor on-air for the piece, which is never done. He's one generous step away from donating bone marrow during his report.
A new computer program developed by German design studio Onformative, has been systematically scanning through Google Earth's database of satellite imagery, searching for faces hidden in the landscapes. The program was devised to explore the psychological phenomenon of Pareidolia, as experienced by a machine, by utilizing facial recognition algorithms to identify the "faces." By scanning every image at each individual zoom level, the program is expected to have covered the entire world within a few months.
It's been a sad week for fans of the American version of The Office. It's eight year, 201 episode run just end on May 16.
For a lot of us, it's a time for reflection, a time for mourning, and a time to start the entire series over from the beginning on Netflix. That, and watching all of the blooper reels that you can find, which is why I was so excited to find this collection of bloopers from seasons 2 through 8. It's nearly 2 HOURS of footage, and embarrassingly easy to watch if you're a fan.
Goodbye, The Office (US). Somewhere up in t.v. heaven there's a furrowed brow looking at a stapler in jello.
Tornadoes are a force that we have not yet been able to reckon with. They are fast, hard to predict, destructive, unstoppable by human intervention, and massive.
Our watching a tornado is like an ant watching a human: unknowing of and unconcerned with the ant, the human lays devastation to all in its meandering path. Justifiably, the sight of a tornado stirs up feelings of both awe and fear, with more fear than awe depending on how close the tornado is.
Below is footage of the 5/19/2013 Shawnee and Central Oklahoma Tornadoes, which may be some of the largest tornadoes ever recorded.
Meet Coco Austin. She's the wife of rapper/actor Ice T and the model in these pictures who's attached to that trunk with all the "junk" in it. And I made sure to put quotes around the word "junk" because actually that thing is money.
