fan trailers: Green Lantern as it could be

Since today is apparently Geek Pride Day,* it wouldn’t be right to let the day pass without a very geeky post. Both Marvel and DC have had their fair share of attempts at bringing long-standing comic book characters to the...

moving: what, me worry?

Have I mentioned yet how much I hate this process? Last night I declared a break on packing and enjoyed some television and light house chores. It was a bit impossible not to do a little move-based work; but it...

music: but that’s my favorite part!

Someone swiped a piece of music from another artist and used it to great success?! Say it ain’t so! From The Guardian: Cameroonian musician Manu Dibango has filed a lawsuit claiming that “Don’t Stop the Music” and “Wanna Be Startin’...

video: do you know your history yet?

I saw this History of the Internet video on YouTube this morning and it’s quite good and informative. The British narrator reminds me a bit of old instructional films and the Look Around You spoof series. I was only prompted...

metro: it’s a… moving target

So after a sick day and a little cheer about the new/changed 43/42 route, I get to my “office station” to see this. All 3 escalators at the non-stadium side of Navy Yard have been out for a few weeks...
