I hope you all have a Merry Christmas.
Hope all my friends here in the good old US of A have a great Thanksgiving holiday.
This is a pretty cool video about the McGurk Effect.
As my regular readers know, I am a huge Rifftrax fan. This month marks the 10th anniversary of the movie-riffing comedy troupe. To celebrate, the fine folks at RT have put together a highlight reel. Here it is. Enjoy.
The next Rifftrax Live show is scheduled for August 18. The boys will be riffing the Japanese monster classic Mothra. I’m planning to attend, and this time I’ll be dragging my brother along for his first Rifftrax Live show. Should be epic.
In less than two weeks, one of my favorite shows returns. April 18 marks the return of 12 Monkeys on Syfy.That’s a Monday night, of course. It seems like a lot of my favorite shows are on Mondays (Better Call Saul, Gotham, and Scorpion). It’s looking like somebody’s gonna have to get bumped and streamed at a later date. I know, First World problems, right?
The trailer for season 2 looks promising.
That’s right, people, it’s Festivus! I hope you’ve all been training for the Feats of Strength. Of course, for me, the best part of the holiday is the Airing of the Grievances. A few Festivus miracles would be kinda nice too.
For more about this day of aluminum poles and grievances, check out this video. Very instructive.
If you read my crime history post yesterday, you know that it was the anniversary of the OK Corral shootout. I often watch the movie Tombstone on the shootout anniversary, but it fell on a Monday this year, and Mondays are too crowded with must-watch TV shows, so I had to skip it. I did, however, head on over to Youtube to see if someone had posted the shootout scene from the movie. What I found was this little gem: The Earps and the Cowboys shoot it out… with Star Wars blasters! Enjoy.
