This is the best 16mm film you're going to see this week.

"There is a city called Vancouver up in British Columbia that feels very much like Melbourne somehow.  Except Melbourne is, in a pokemanian sense, like an evolve of Vancouver, with more incredible plumage and a repertoire of savage elemental attacks." - Tycho Brahe

Good science can be funny science.
 
Hey kids! I did a science video with NASA and Alan Tudyk all about gravity, and how it works to keep things in orbit.

Who wants to see Back to the Future in 35mm?
"Wait a minute, Doc. Ah... Are you telling me that the Hollywood Theatre is actually screening Back to the Future August 2nd & 3rd? " "The way we see it, if you're gonna fix up a fabulous old theatre, why not do it with some style?" Yes, it's true. Back to the Future comes to the Hollywood on 35mm next month! All proceeds from the box office will go towards fixing up the facade ( Love the Hollywood ) and help to bring the beloved 1936 era...

From the comments thread on my "The Lone Ranger" review, from the hand of commenter "Scott Corpany:"
>>>
What's really important though is whether Disney is going to insist on shoehorning this big chewed-up wad of failure into the Kingdom Hearts franchise, when they SHOULD be taking advantage of their ownership of the Muppets, Marvel Comics and Star Wars to have the Beast (X-Men), the Beast (Beauty & the), Chewbacca and Cookie Monster having Jedi Lightsaber Duels with FFVII's Sephiroth on the slopes of Chernabog (the big mountain demon from Fantasia), who has been relocated to the surface of the Death Star, while Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem Band provide their interpretation of his signature "Night on Bald Mountain". Holy crap, Disney! HOLY CRAP!!!

I haven't bitten the bullet and installed something like that yet, but I'm seriously considering it.
Chrome/Firefox: It's no secret that email is grossly insecure. If you want a little privacy in your inbox, the easiest way to do it is to encrypt your messages, and Mailvelope offers free, OpenPGP encryption for most popular webmail services that's easy to configure and a breeze to use.

OK, after a little looking around, I'm down to my three final GReader replacements: CommaFeed, The Old Reader, and Feedly. I like the minimalist UI of CommaFeed, but it's a bit unresponsive. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for ones I may have missed? #greaderreplacementshowdown

Yeah, I imported my feed to digg as well, but until I can filter out unread items, it's kinda useless. I also found InoReader, which is quite nice. None of them have decent search capabilities, though, which is the thing google tends to do best.

This looks kind of awesome. Anyone up for trading some art cards?
