New Trailers

Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon
Here's the newest trailer for the upcoming Transformers flick. Hopefully this one will focus more on the human side of things rather than those boring war robots. Couldn't be any worse than the second, could it?

X-Men: First Class
Can't say I pictured anyone other than Patrick Stewart as Prof. X but this is looking much, much better than it sounds on paper. The character mix and continuity is kinda strange and I don't care at all for the way Beast or Mystique look but the rest is surprisingly not horrible.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
Ten years and eight films later and this series is finally winding down. It hard to believe that they've managed to keep most of the cast together throughout all these years but somehow they managed it.

A Song of Ice and Fire.

Trailer for the third episode of Game of Thrones. Sunday's on HBO.

Dumb ass cousins fighting over a TV show

As will happen during shows “based on medieval times,” Podniestrzanski and his cousin “got into a verbal altercation” over which of the cable program’s characters was going to win, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.

With the argument between Podniestrzanski and Joshua Ross escalating, Podniestrzanski allegedly “took a swing at” his kin. After scuffling for a bit, Podniestrzanski’s cousin “ended up getting thrown in to the front window during the altercation.”
Podniestrzanski was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery and transported to the county jail, where he is currently being held. Link

Bewere the Night 
by Holly Black, Elizbeth Hand, and various others.
Kitsune. Werewolves. Crane wives. Selkies. Every culture has stories of such strange creatures - animals turning into humans, humans shapeshifting into animals.

Here are stories that will make you wish you could howl at the moon until your heart bursts with longing or feel yourself shedding your human body as easily as a snake sheds its skin. Beware the might not kill you, but it will certainly steal you away!

WTF China?

A few weeks ago Chinese officials all but banned time travel in their media.

In a statement dated March 31, the State Administration for Radio, Film & Television said that TV dramas that involve characters traveling back in time “lack positive thoughts and meaning.” The guidelines discouraging this type of show said that some “casually make up myths, have monstrous and weird plots, use absurd tactics, and even promote feudalism, superstition, fatalism and reincarnation.” Link

The issued guidelines discouraged producers and writers from using time travel, along with any elements that contain "fantasy ... random compilations of mythical stories, bizarre plots, absurd techniques," if they want their programs to stay on the air. SARFT, however, has the power to pull the plug on any show whenever it wants. Link

 It's scary how far they will go to control their people.

The year is 1919. The McNaughton Corporation is the pinnacle of American industry. They built the guns that won the Great War before it even began.

But something is rotten at the heart of the city.

All the Lives He Led by Frederik Pohl

Chance earns him a spot working in Italy's lavish commemoration of the 2,000th anniversary of the destruction of Pompeii. Beneath quiescent Vesuvius, tourists enjoy entertainments real and virtual. Ben's ambition is limited to minor scams and romance, but fate places him near the epicenter of a terrorist plot of unprecedented scale.
Hybrids by Whitley Strieber

And the evil from the Bourne swells….
