Best of the Week – 3512

Here we go with with this weeks edition of Best of the Week.

Movie Trailer of the Week: 
Taken 2 – In theatres October 5th, 2012

Need I say more, then this is the sequel to the film that gave us this legendary quote:
“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you. ”
And who doesn’t want to see more of Liam Neeson.
P.S. Same plot as the first one… basically.

Video of the Week:
Tinker vs. The Caterpillar

I shot this one, and it’s my doxie… what else can I say.

News Article of the Week:
Elderly lady ‘restores’ church fresco.

The great Spanish Fresco last week

 

An elderly parishioner took it upon herself to restore 100+ years of moisture damage to ‘Ecce Homo’, and the results were, well, shall we say a little shocking… Except to the internet, who have adopted it as it’s newest meme.

Awesome Software of the Week:
Planetside 2
http://www.planetside2.com/
The long awaited sequel to one of my favourite MMO‘s is now in closed beta. Planetside is one of the only MMOFPS games ever, and probably the most popular. I was a big fan of the never ending combat, and the ability to jump online, run around for as long as I wanted, and then just leave… something that is hard to do in other online games that require, among other things… RAIDS. I can’t wait for it to come out, or when I finally get my beta invite… and best of all, it will be free to play!

As always, I’m still open to suggestions for other categories, and for nominations to get included on the list. You can let me know at: oftheweekATleighcDOTcom

Best of the Week – 3412

Here we go with with this weeks edition of Best of the Week… after a long summer break, hope you didn’t miss me to much.

Movie Trailer of the Week: 
Hit & Run – In theatres August 22nd 2012

Not the big budget Hollywood film you might have been expecting, no, this is a much smaller venture almost entirely put together by Dax Shepard, who is probably one of the luckiest guys in the world, as he is dating Kristen Bell, who I think is one of the sexiest ladies in the world (say the bit in italics like Jeremy Clarkson… do it!). The movie is also stars Shepard, Bell, Tom Arnold and Bradley Cooper.

Music Video of the Week:
PSY – Gangnam Style

I’m not even sure what the heck this is about, but apparently, Gangnam is the rich part of Seoul, and let’s be honest here, it is much better than half… no, make that three quarters of the crap that is coming out of recording studios over here now.

News Article of the Week:
Curiosity Rover goes out for its first drive.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-19342994

Houston, we have motion. Yup, they did a quick systems check on the little rover to make sure that the wheels, and in turn, all of the locomotion system was functioning correctly. This is good news, since this is one heck of an expensive science experiment… something close to $2.5 billion US has/will be spent on this.

 

 

eBay Auction of the Week:
Oxygen Bar/Aroma Bar

I’m pretty sure this fad died out more than a decade ago, but hey, if you have $650 to burn, you can have your own 4 top (4 person) O2 bar. Oh, and this guy needs to get a real camera and stop using his iPhone to take pictures.

Awesome Software of the Week:
War Thunder
http://warthunder.com/
It’s probably not fair of me to post a game here… let alone one that is still in beta… a beta that I happen to be partaking in. The game combines some of my favourite things… it’s a Free 2 Play game (of course you can buy boosters and stuff) and it involves aerial combat with World War 2 aircraft.You can play in missions, go head to head in massive battles and they are working on what they refer to as ‘Dynamic Campaigns’, where you can change the out come of real battles.
