I’m totally loving this site, The Periodic Table of Videos from the University of Nottingham. A short video about each element is available by clicking on the table or by checking out their YouTube profile. Lauren Cooper clearly needs no assistance, and the producers of Look Around You just might have gotten their elements a bit mixed up.

Star Trek teaser poster

I’ve seen the trailer for Watchmen and even having never read the book, it looks great. I plan to get through the series at some point this weekend.

Paramount will be giving out some promo posters for Star Trek at Comic Con, Entertainment Weekly has a sneak peek at them. The four combine into the larger image, but fans are only getting one-per. I don’t think the die-hards will have trouble getting a complete set. I’d like to be more excited about this movie but… *meh. It’s probably because I’ve read too many spoilers online about what is, isn’t and might be happening.

    I have to be excited about the Trek movie, as it’s in my contract and in my DNA.

    Monday morning afterthought: You know what what was “meh”?
    The Dark Knight was “meh”.
    I know I am the only fan boy on the planet who thinks this, but there you go.
    Hellboy 2, on the other hand, was quite fun and enjoyable.
