Best of the Week – 2512

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

Movie Trailer of the Week:
Ted – In theatre June 29th 2012

This looks like it is going to be a good comedy to get the summer season started. It’s Seth MacFarlanes first full length feature film, and we all know him from Family Guy and American Dad!. Oh, and you might want to check out the more adult version of the trailer too.

Music Mash Up of the Week:
Gorillaz vs Genesis – Stylo Can’t Dance

OMG, the first reader submitted content! (Thanks Melissa)
I was surprised how well the songs meshed together, not to mention the video itself. Gorillaz is famous for their animated videos, and has made some of my favourite songs in the past, and the video for Stylo was no exception… of course, it does help having Bruce Willis in it too. Now we mash in the other awesome that it Genesis, home to the great Phil Collins, and bring in their video and vocals from I can’t Dance, straight out of 1991.

News Article of the Week:

School board council chairman over turns decision, supports freedom of speech and expression.
Martha PayneSeriously, how could you say “No, you cannot take pictures of your food and write a blog about is” to this girl.

Best of the Week – 2412

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

Movie Trailer of the Week:
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – In theatre December 14th 2012

I have been waiting for this film since the Lord of the Rings films finished. Peter Jackson can do no wrong, considering he kept most of the same LoTR cast, and was able to use the same filming locations.
Note: I was going to pick ‘The Host‘ this week, then I noticed that The Host was based on a Stephenie Meyer novel… and all Movies based on her books should be burned. Thanks for making vampires into sparklers, please go die in a fire.

Music Mash Up Awesomeness of the Week:
Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders – Call me maybe

This song has become an internet icon, and has spawned countless parodies. Now, it has been paired up with a boat load of beautiful women, who do a great job with the lip syncing and choreographing this video. OK, to be honest, no one has watched the clip for the music.

News Article of the Week:
Farmer blames heat ray for cows’ deaths
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/story/2012/06/12/nb-cows-werner-bock-628.html
I’m not really sure where to start with this… Maybe I really should start making and selling hats that are pre-lined with tin foil. I did manage to dig up the series of videos that the farmer made to back up his claims, but be warned, you must put on your tin foil hat prior to watching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIYgIvJHceM

eBay Auction of the Week:
Strange Mummified Alien thing (I am pretty sure it’s a stingray)
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/STRANGE-MUMMIFIED-ALIEN-CREATURE-SIDESHOW-GAFF-TAXIDERMY-ODD-OOAK-ROSWELL-AREA51?item=290728249654&cmd=ViewItem&_trksid=p5197.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DSI%26itu%3DUCI%252BRTU%26otn%3D8%26pmod%3D180898518779%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D9140936945143100976#ht_500wt_1287
I can’t even begin to comprehend that there is actually a market for this… but I guess people will believe just about anything.

Meme of the Week:
I’m from the future, and I’m your baby
Carly Rae McFly
