We have Random Images on the front page, now. That’s all, I guess.
Ronald Moore confirmed that the end is in sight for the ragtag fugitive fleet, and it is after season 4.
We thought, if we don’t start paying this off and really revealing those secrets, we’ll be moving in the wrong direction and get to a place where it felt like we were jerking off the audience
Honestly, I think it is a great move. I agree that if you had them wandering for years it would get stale. No need for a lot of filler episodes or one-shots.
Moore and Eick were vague on their plans for the series’ final episodes, but Moore did say that viewers will “get to see Earth” by the end of the show.
As long as they are not arriving in 1980 with invisible flying motorcycles, I’m cool with it.
No, that’s not a joke. It really happened, just in time for Spiderman 3 and POTC3.
After showing people to their seats, trained ushers are strapping on the goggles and scanning darkened cinemas around the country to spot anyone trying to make illegal copies of movies with hand-held video recorders or mobile phones.
The Motion Picture Association, which is training Malaysian ushers to catch the pirates, said cinemas had caught 17 people in the past two months, during which Hollywood studios released blockbusters like “Spider-Man 3” and “Pirates of the Caribbean”.
“All of the cases were spotted with night-vision goggles,” the association’s Malaysia manager, Nor Hayati Yahaya, said on Friday. “Its very successful.”
Just, wow. It gets better:
The association, which represents the big Hollywood studios, recently brought to Malaysia two dogs trained to sniff out DVDs — with stunning results. The two Labradors, Lucky and Flo, have sniffed out more than a million DVDs and broken a fake DVD ring.
They have been so successful that authorities believe Malaysian pirates have put a bounty on the dogs’ heads.
Hmm. Not exactly hunting down drug dealers or finding people trapped in wreckage.
In a day and age where College athletes at the highest levels can be as famous and as pampered as their professional counterparts, Joe Pa is a throwback. At least 15 Nittany Lions were involved in an ugly off-campus brawl, but instead of trying to move past it quickly and using typical head-coach doubletalk about who started what, and this guy just made a mistake, Paterno is taking action. On the Sunday after every home game, his team will take to the field again…to clean the stands of garbage as penance for doing Penn State, their coach, the team and their fans wrong.
It’s a job that usually goes to members of club sports on campus say, rugby or crew which do it to raise money so they can compete. Paterno said the clubs still will get the $5,000 for the job, but his guys, fresh off playing 60 minutes of major college football the day before, will do all the work starting Sunday morning.
“We’re all going to do it, everybody,” Paterno told the Harrisburg Patriot-News after a banquet in suburban Philadelphia. “Not just the kids that were involved. ‘Cause we’re all in it together. This is a team embarrassment. I wouldn’t call it anything much other than that.”
How many coaches would do this? I think the NFL should take note, maybe Chris Henry and Pacman Jones could use a dose of this? ;) Joe Pa isn’t done, either:
The entire team also will have to build a house for Habitat for Humanity and volunteer for the Special Olympics this summer.
Our favorite English Trek geek finally sold his apartment, which had been remade into a very detailed Next Gen suite. I wonder how much cash he put into it…
I would just like to congratulate my wife, Jennifer, for graduating with her Associates Degree last night! Thomas and I knew you could do it!
Canada will no longer get advanced screenings of Warner Bros. movies, stating that 70 percent of their movies from the past 18 months were pirated in the Frozen North. It is currently not a criminal offense there to take your camcorder in to record a movie for ‘personal use’. President Bush wanted to send in the Marines upon hearing those numbers, but was dissuaded after he found out there were no actual peglegs or cutlasses involved.
Woot started one of their ‘Woot-offs’ last night. If you’ve ever felt the need for cheap gadgetry (and who hasn’t?), this is a great time to get some. They’ve had a gaming mouse, a Belkin iPod dock, and an external DVD writer so far, just for example.
I know the forums are a bit wonky depending on which theme I have enabled, I’ll be working on it though.
Edit: I’ve just stopped trying to integrate the forum into the WordPress stuff directly…I don’t think it’ll really come up much anyhoo.
