Must Watch: Music Video For Geek Anthem “In Ten Years”
The Movie God   |  

H.P. Mendoza's "In Ten Years"

Geeky music videos are nothing new, but they very rarely get old. Especially when they’re as catchy as this.

Back in 2004, H.P. Mendoza released his first album, titled Everything is Pop. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release, here’s the music video for the album’s geek anthem, “In Ten Years.” It’s a video that’s sure to spark great feelings of nostalgia in most of you, with nods to old video games, movies, technology, and even fashion…while anyone younger might find themselves staring at the computer rather confused at days gone by.

You can check out the video below.

Box Of Dread: The October Edition
Dr. Zaius   |  

Box of Dread Ad

Every month I patiently await my happy little Box of Dread from Dread Central. The boxes, which are filled with all sorts of horror regalia, come delivered monthly to your door. In the past few months, I received DVDs, toys, stickers, posters, buttons, etc. Not every box will contain the exact same things (some do), but will have similar themes.

This month happens to be October, which for horror fans means Christmas has come early and Halloween is here. It also means to return to television for arguably horror’s most popular show, AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Continue reading for more on this month’s Box of Dread, and to see some images and unboxing videos.

Darth Vader in Ukraine

The Ukrainian Internet Party is pushing for reform in the upcoming parliamentary elections, and who better than the Dark Lord of The Sith, Darth Vader, from Star Wars to get things done!

The former Jedi and evil henchmen for the Galactic Empire (or at least someone dressed like him) is running in the upcoming parliamentary elections there as a legitimate candidate. Vader even has an ad campaign making rounds on the internet this week featuring beautiful fields (not unlike Naboo), a horse, and even a traditional Russian instrument being played by Lord Vader to a familiar stirring tune.

Check out the ad campaign videos here below.

A Look At The ‘Roger Rabbit’ Voiced By Pee-Wee Herman You Didn’t Know Existed (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Early Who Framed Roger Rabbit Image

As you know, a lot goes into making a movie. Many of them are developed for many years, seeing various writers and directors and other talent come and go as the best strategy for making the movie is figured out.

1988′s Who Framed Roger Rabbit was no different. Directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring the late Bob Hoskins, the movie would go on to become an unforgettable fusion of live-action film noir and cartoon comedy. But Disney was trying to make the movie happen years before that destiny was realized. They acquired the rights to the Gary K. Wolf novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? not long after its publication in 1981, and at one point in 1983 had an adaptation in the works with Paul Reubens as Roger Rabbit (around the time he was becoming known as Pee-Wee Herman).

You can see a behind-the-scenes video of this very different version of Roger Rabbit below.

Geek ‘Shop: ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Star Chris Pratt As Indiana Jones

Guardians of the Galaxy's Chris Pratt as Star Lord

Looks like Chris Pratt is the next big thing! Who would have thought back in his pre six-pack-abs days as the lovable slacker Andy Dwyer on NBC’s Parks and Recreation that the Minnesota native would be the next big action hero? But thanks to his recent turn as Star-Lord in Marvel’s summer tentpole Guardians of the Galaxy, Pratt has been elevated to a whole new level of geekdom and fandom.

It’s easy to compare Pratt’s portrayal of Star-Lord to Harrison Ford’s beloved Star Wars character Han Solo, but deviantART user rahzzah did a pretty impressive photoshop job turning Pratt into another one of Ford’s iconic characters, Indiana Jones.

Check out the image here below and get ready to believe.

DVDs, CDs, books, wine, beer, fruit…all can be had with a monthly subscription for an affordable fee. But how do you get your monthly horror fix? Box of Dread fulfills that need. Every month a box of creepy surprises arrives, containing an assortment of goodies, which could include DVDs, t-shirts, stickers, comics, toys, and more. And although there is a general theme each month, no two boxes are exactly alike.

According to their FAQs page, they aim to “deliver the horror convention experience in a box”. Pick from two plans. The first is $20 a month, including shipping, and you can cancel at any time. The second is $57 for three months, including shipping, and you can cancel at the end of each three. Both plans are automatic renewal.

The Fantastic and Gothic Art of David Palumbo
Dr. Geek, Ph.D.   |  

A Mosaic of Images From The Gritty Gallery By David Palumbo

Fantasy art and illustration has a beautiful and rich history. From the beautiful and titillating Margaret Brundage covers for Weird Tales through the poster, magazine, and album art of Frank Frazetta to the contemporary work of Marc Silvestri, artists and illustrators have brought color and shape to worlds of wonder. Be they scenes from the past, the future, or lands that never were, art plays an important role in fleshing out description and dialog.

Into this worthy tradition comes artist David Palumbo. Be it the historic flight of the first woman cosmonaut, Valentina Tereshkova, in June 1963; the return of the Cthulhu and the Old Ones to destroy a modern metropolis’ a Victorian image of Jack The Ripper, or creature art for the trading card game Legend Of The Cryptids, Palumbo brings a strong eye for detail, light, and color that immediately draws the eye. Parts of his paintings show detail with clarity, where others are intentionally vague. The figures often suggest a kinetic sense of impending motion that no photograph could properly convey. The faces are caught in expressions of terror, struggle, or bewilderment.

Recreate ‘Jurassic Park’ Hacking Scene With Jurassic Systems
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Jurassic Park

Remember that scene from Steven Spielberg‘s original Jurassic Park where Newman sabotages the park’s high-tech security measures in order to steal some dinosaur embryos and Samuel L. Muthaf***in’ Jackson! tries briefly to restore order before telling the Oscar-winning director of Gandhi that he can’t get the park back online? I’m pretty sure it was in the trailer.

Jurassic Systems is an interactive HMTL5/Javascript site created by programmer Tully Robinson that allows you to recreate this scene. When you visit the site, will be taken to the main page where the Jurassic Park scene is available to watch as a YouTube embed. It’s advised that you watch this scene before proceeding to the fun part because you will need to know the three commands Jackson’s character enters before that annoying little animation of Newman’s sweaty, bulbous noggin on a cartoon Elvis body (never noticed that part before) wagging his finger and saying, “Ah-ah-ah, you didn’t say the magic word!” Enter the three commands in the correct phrasing and order and….well, you know what happens next. The system also accepts these five basic commands: “access,” “system,” “ls,” “display,” and “help.”
