AVS forum and YouTube member lucasberg put up this macro video of a praying mantis. If you’re short of time, fast forward to points 3:25, where the mantis catches a flying insect, and then at about 6:30, where the mantis proceeds to go all Thanksgiving feast on its prey. I have to say, the video is pretty […]
The newest video game in the Warhammer 40K universe is Space Marine, a 3rd person shooter. Well it’s more of a 3rd person combat game, I wouldn’t really call it a strict shooter. There is a LOT of melee in this game. The premise is simple, you’re a Space Marine, and there are hordes of […]
I was checking out some of the new web-design books at the local bookstore when I came across Before & After: How to Design Cool Stuff by John McWade. The title of the book and look of the cover made me cringe a little, but I took a moment to browse through the book. A bit […]

Full scoop over at Entertainment Weekly here. I’m not sure if I’m a fan of Spidey’s new look, although the costume does have somewhat of a high-tech look to it, more so than in the previous movies.
I added Kick-Ass to my Netflix queue a long, long time ago, so when it arrived last weekend I didn’t know what to expect. I knew it had something to do with an amateur super hero teen and Nicolas Cage was a Batman-wannabee, but that’s about it. Kick-Ass is rated R for its profanities, blood, […]
If you looked total badass up in the dictionary, Duke Nukem’s face is what you’d see. After ~14 years, which feels like forever, especially with regard to video games, a sequel is FINALLY being released. Duke Nukem Forever features the namesake first person shooter action here, and the requisite alien pig invasion. The game is […]
