Best of the Week – 0413

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

Movie Trailer of the Week: 

Movie 43 – In theatres January 25th, 2013

Synopsis:A series of interconnected short films follows three kids as they search the depths of the Internet to find the most banned movie in the world.
I’m not even going to attempt to name any of the cast of this one, but if you’ve seen a film of any kind in the last 5 years or so, then you will be able to name over half of this ensemble. I don’t think the trailer does it justice either, and I really hope they didn’t plug up the trailer with all the good parts, I hate when they do that.

YouTube Video of the Week:

Mission Impossible – Lindsey Stirling and the Piano Guys

Lindsey Stirling makes another appearance on my YouTube video of the week list with a new take on the Mission Impossible theme. This time she team’s up with The Piano Guys and a chap with a cello. I am moving closer to the conclusion that any musical compilation that Lindsey comes out with, will be pure awesome.

News Article of the Week:

Norway goat cheese fire shuts down road tunnel.
http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/01/23/bring-your-fries-and-gravy-traffic-meltdown-as-massive-goat-cheese-fire-shuts-norway-road-tunnel/
Yes, you read that title correctly, a fire that consisted of gourmet goat cheese shut down a road tunnel in Norway. Not only did it shut the tunnel down, but it burned for 4 days and is expected to take weeks to clean up the mess. In Norway this particular goat cheese is known as Brunost, which is a caramelized brown cheese. I may have discovered an alternative fuel source.

Goat Cheese Fire, big news this week.
Expensive alternative fuel source.

Best of the Week – 0313

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

Movie Trailer of the Week: 

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters – In theatres January 25th, 2013

Synopsis:In this spin on the fairy tale, Hansel & Gretel are now bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world. As the fabled Blood Moon approaches, the siblings encounter a new form of evil that might hold a secret to their past.
Who needs breadcrumbs when you can have bounty hunting! So, let’s take a favourite childhood story and update it for the 21st century. The cast is led by Jeremy Renner as Hansel(Hurt Locker, The Avengers, The Bourne Legacy) and Famke Janssen (X-Men series) as Muriel, but I’ll want to see it for Gemma Arteton as Gretel, as she was the gorgeous Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace.

YouTube Video of the Week:

Toy Story : Live Action

Wow, this is stunning. YouTube user JonasonsMovies actually took the time to re-create the 1995 Disney/Pixar hit scene for scene, and with permission from Pixar! Given time and money, I would probably do something similar, or just keep making videos of my dachshund.

News Article of the Week:

Google denies killing a donkey in a Botswana hit and run.
http://www.ctvnews.ca/sci-tech/google-denies-killing-a-donkey-in-a-botswana-hit-and-run-1.1117386
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case, it is. Google, who are working to get Street View in more and more locations, are currently uploading portions of Botswana, in Southern Africa. Eagle eyed users spotted what looked like a donkey lying dead in the road. Google has defended itself on the Street View blog, letting us know that the donkey is perfectly fine.

Google's dead donkey from this week.
Gulf Sierra Victor to base, Donkey Down. I say again, Donkey Down.
Google Donkey is ok, from this week.
Base, the Donkey is alive.

Best of the Week – 0213

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

Movie Trailer of the Week: 

Zero Dark Thirty – In theatres January 11th, 2013

Synopsis:A chronicle of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after the September 2001 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 in May, 2011.
If I can say anything for Americans, it is that they never forget, well.. almost never.* September 11th 2001 will be remembered just a vividly as December 7th 1941. This film looks to take us along for the journey, uncovering the 10 years worth of work it took to find and kill Osama Bin Laden, the suspected mastermind behind the attacks. To be brutally honest, I’m only going to watch it for one reason… Jessica Chastain.
Jessica Chastain, hot chick of the week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*War of 1812 anyone?


YouTube Video of the Week:

Compressorhead – Ace of Spades

Compressorhead is the worlds heaviest metal band, literally… they’re robots and they rock. Stickboy, fingers, and bones are guaranteed to shake and rattle the world of meatbag music. Standaside meatbags. Oil is thicker than blood.

News Article of the Week:

Sisters in New Zealand, aged 14 and 12, crash into each other.
http://www.news.com.au/national/underaged-nz-sisters-crash-into-each-other/story-fndo4bst-1226550481368
Isn’t New Zealand the same country that was showing off the driving dogs not so long ago? Now, having watched all Top Gear: Australia episodes, I can say for a fact that kids in that part of the world are given keys and taught to drive earlier than in North America, though normally it is in a back lot or field away from other drivers.

Movie Trailer of the Week: 

World War Z – In theatres June 21st, 2013

Synopsis:A U.N. employee is racing against time and fate, as he travels the world trying to stop the outbreak of a deadly Zombie pandemic.
Zombies! They are all the rage now, so much more than vampires, cause they don’t sparkle and they don’t care about anything. Brad Pitt takes on the main role as Gerry Lane, and well, he’s about the only name I recognized in the cast list. Please don’t suck like your Chanel commercial, and cut your hair, you look like a hippy.

YouTube Video of the Week:

Video captures a man brutalizing and having sex with a horse.
http://www.wtsp.com/news/watercooler/article/289853/58/FL-man-wanted-for-having-sex-with-horse
Mr. Ed would not approve. And I thought that the sheep in Scotland had something to worry about, now we have a crazy running around Florida having carnal relations with horses! I guess I shouldn’t pick on Scotland, considering my heritage… I need to pick on Florida, and here’s why.. .and I quote “Florida is one of a handful of states with laws against having sex with animals. That law passed in 2011.” 2011… up until just over a year ago it was ok??? Seriously Florida.

He would rather play Chess.
