Watched Iron Sky couple nights ago

After WWII nazis fled to the dark side of the moon and hid there building new invasion fleet to conquer the earth back in future. Soon they capture one astronaut and start their way back to earth...

Nice plot, lots of fun moments and story flows nicely. Some gags have turned obsolete in just couple years but most work really well. Nice dialogue and alternate reality for those who like nazis, steampunk and sci-fi. Recommended. (Watched theatrical version.)
Directed by Timo Vuorensola. With Julia Dietze, Christopher Kirby, Götz Otto, Udo Kier. The Nazis set up a secret base on the dark side of the moon in 1945 where they hide ou...

Where mankind's tv broadcasts are now

Whoa... When all those reality tv broadcasts get into contact with aliens, we're safe. They don't want to mess with race so stupid, I heard it's contagious...;) But first broadcasts are pretty far away I admit!

Of course, if you know what to look for, you can tune your listening posts. The posts listening for signals from the Voyager probes are trying to identify a signal with 10^-16 watts power. They are transmitting with an, in context, enormous 20 watts, and directional.

Filled Jalapenos

Tried something new today. First I carved seeds out from bunch of green jalapenos and filled them with blue cheese. After that I wrapped them in bacon and put them in d-i-y stand (made out of chicken wire) in oven. I have to admit that result was pretty good.

I would mix in a very small amount of mozzarella to the bleu cheese - it will improve the consistency without negating the flavor of the bleu cheese.

Watched Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment couple nights ago.

Now those cadets have started working in the police forces and soon find themselves transferred into worst precinct with gang problems.

Decent story, some fun moments and ok acting. Not as good as first film, but this is entertaining movie. Recommended for comedy fans.

Lightning in a waterspout

Pretty amazing picture here...

"Lightning inside a waterspout. Shot from the back of Kenny J, a sport fisher while on the way out to the reef to fish for snapper. Little Torch Key, mm 28 Florida Keys. It was noisy for a little while. The lightning was about a mile from the boat."

Yeah, I got enthused, decided to get that plus the hdmi converter, then turned out that plus shipping and conversion meant it was near 50 aud.  Then I'm like ... I'm out.

Probably the scariest sounding instrument ever

Aztecs just got more more step ruthless with their 'Death whistle' instruments, that were used in sacrifices and warfare.

Just imagine hearing one (or several) of those during pitch-black night...

Okay, I watched the video and "scream" is the right word. A hundred of those things playing at once would be TERRIFYING.
When odd, skull-shaped grave items were found by archaeologists decades ago at an Aztec temple in Mexico, they were assumed to be mere toys or ornaments, and were catalogued and stored in warehouses. However, years later, experts discovered they were

Watched Alone the dark last night.

Ancient indian tribe managed to open gate between light world and dark world causing some monsters to creep into our world. Now those artifacts required to open the portal again has been found and fate of the world is at stake.

Terrible direction, annoying camera work and story is limping around without destination. I can't figure out any good points from the movie, except that it really ended. And this has nothing to do with the game 'Alone in the dark' even while this is based on it. Avoid at all costs.

I was kinda excited to see this film back in 06, because I thought it would be like the computer game I used to play back in 92-94. Boy was I disappointed.
