Well, the 15,000th version of Star Wars is coming out on Blu-ray soon.
I’ll give Lucas a lot of credit. The man is a genius at marketing. He must have a huge storehouse of stuff that he can release for each new version of the movies he puts out.
This time the thing that is getting me to consider buying the Blu-ray is this deleted scenes trailer:
I foolishly thought that the DVD releases . . . → Read More: Star Wars… they did it again!
Generally speaking, women are nuts for Valentines Day. Generally speaking, men don’t get it. We participate, frequently against our will, but we don’t really get it.
Why is there a specific day when everyone in the world is supposed to buy flowers/chocolate/some other extravagant gift for women? Do they deserve these things? Absolutely. Women (just like men) deserve to feel special and wanted. But why turn it into a commercial event?
That question answers itself, . . . → Read More: Valentines Day!
A couple of days ago I received a coupon in my email for a free pizza from a local pizzeria. It was a one day deal – a free medium pizza on July 8th only. Not being one to turn down free food, especially food filled with grease and cheese, my interest was piqued. I closely examined the coupon for any hints of a catch, and found that there were no qualifications. Just show up, show . . . → Read More: “Free Pizza!!” or “How to completely bungle a marketing campaign”
Obviously the European fascists are being hurt by the global economic problems. In an effort save money, they’ve apparently let their entire marketing department go. While I applaud their frugality, I think their message has suffered a bit. I’ve just received this email from Burley, whom I assume is the sole survivor of their marketing holocaust extermination cuts downsizing:
We are european fascists ! Fight for racial purity ! Our time begins! We are strong . . . → Read More: Slow economy affects European fascist marketing
Everything old is new again.
In anticipation of Tron: Legacy, a fan created this new trailer for the original Tron (1982), with a more modern look and feel. He did a fantastic job. Really great.
Wanted to make a exciting trailer with a modern feel as oppose to its original marketing in the 80s. I hope people will give this movie a try before they see Tron Legacy. Sure its dated but . . . → Read More: New Tron Trailer
15 Minute Lunch: Strap in, shut up and hold on. We’re going back. It’s almost shocking anyone survived the 1970s. There should have been some kind of ritual suicide for looking like this.
Sadly, I think I owned that entire outfit. And wore it. MOM, What was wrong with you?!
This next one… I couldn’t come up with anything better than the description on the original site…
This kid looks like he’s . . . → Read More: Grab your Hardy Boys lunch box – here come the ’70s
Hana Gittleman’s “covert” site
This site gives you the chance to join in on the Heroes storyline and become a part of the story. There are links to other websites from the world of the show as well, complete with hidden passwords and dossiers. Fun stuff.

I’m probably way behind the times on pointing this out, but I just found this link and needed to post it.
It’s a one-minute movie showing the [tag]transformation[/tag] of a model from pre-make-up to head-shot-on-a-billboard, and is the best example I’ve seen of displaying how distorted our view of [tag]beauty[/tag] (and reality) have become. The resemblance of the finished product (and I use that term purposefully) to the real woman is almost unrecognizable.
