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.

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

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.

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
