Netflix to Double Orignal Content Next Year

“Hemlock Grove” and “House of Cards” are both excellent series. Netflix seriously, and somewhat shockingly, delivered.  And though I missed the boat on “Arrested Development” first go ’round, I can’t resist the cast. I’ve loved or have grown to love them, and I’ll no doubt be revisiting the series when it debuts its third season this

Zombieland Series Canceled on Amazon Prime

It seems the fans Have spoken. And that’s a good thing. I literally just got around to watching this show last night on Amazon Prime. Man, was it awful. It’s no surprise that Amazon passed on it. To start, the jokes were cliché. And it felt cheap. A production should never scrimp on writing. I’m

Morrissey Turns 53 Today!

I’m an unashamed Smiths fanatic. They honestly never get old for me. I go through phases where all I need in my life is The Smiths. They are the band that made me turn a gentler cheek, give up all (most) of the doom goth and industrial grind. And that’s due in one part to

Part Two: 3-D Food Printer is Funded by NASA

NASA has granted $125,000 to Anjan Contractor, a senior mechanical engineer at Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC), based in Austin, TX, to build a prototype of his food synthesizer. Their first food to print? Pizza! 3-D food in not Franken-food. It’s awesome food. NASA wants to develop the technology so they might feed astronauts on

New 3-D Printed Handgun Fires Nine Rounds

Inner geek alert. A new 3-D handgun was printed… and fired nine rounds! The originators, Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed, released the files [that later the government made them take down] for the first 3-D printed gun. It was downloaded (a lot), and these two engineers scrambled to the finish line. After a lot of at home tinkering,

Savages – “Shut Up”

I think I love the Savages. They’re punk, new wave, rock, and a whole lot of fucking awesome. They have a ton of energy and are inspired to play for themselves – something a lot of bands can’t fathom. They don’t want to be anything, they just want to sound good. They’re going to kick face

Paul Thomas Anderson to Adapt Thomas Pynchon’s “Inherent Vice”

It’s a Paul Thomas Anderson kind of day, I suppose. He’s currently working on an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon‘s novel “Inherent Vice.” Sean Penn is also in talks to join the ensemble cast, which already features Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short, Jena Malone and Kevin J. O’Connor. Though the two have

New Material from The Weeknd

This is the best R&B has ever sounded to me. While I don’t dislike R&B, it’s just not my speed. It doesn’t hit me right. But Montreal’s The Weeknd came out on the scene and really kicked shit up. It made me go back and listen to some older stuff that I didn’t appreciate in

Liars – “I Saw You From The Lifeboat”

I go in and out of liking Liars, but this song I’m into. It has a harsh drone quality (read: hypnotic) that I really like. It’s also draggy without being irritating. I’m sure it’s not a party starter, but it’s definitely something you can put on in the background and really get down to. I’d
