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.
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.








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 – 3812

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

Movie Trailer of the Week: 

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – In theatres December 14th, 2012
A curious Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves to reclaim a treasure stolen from them by the dragon Smaug. Peter Jackson is back, this time turning a single novel into another 3 part movie series, just like he did with Lord of the Rings. Ian McKellen returns in his roll as Gandalf, along with other cast from the LotR trilogy.

YouTube Video of the Week:
Gangnam Style Parody – Gandalf Style

I hope this never gets old. Gangnam style is awesome! And some of these parodies are amazing. Some guy in Chicago, The US Naval Academy cadets, Deadpool, North fricking Korea and some lifeguards in California. Unfortunately, the city of El Monte, California, was not amused, and the lifeguards were fired, but there is hope.

Honourable Mention:
Elements (Dubstep Violin) – Lindsey Stirling

Lindsey’s musical interpretations are just plain amazing. I strongly suggest watching some of her other videos.

News Article of the Week:
Stephen A. Smith fooled by The Onion.
And I was sure everyone had heard of The Onion by now, but not Stephen Smith of ESPN, who went into a legendary rant on twitter, only to find out that he had in fact been had. Queue ‘We won’t get fooled again‘ by The Who.

Kijiji Ad of the Week:
If only I lived closer to Toronto! Over 17,000 views and apparently numerous applicants have applied to be the Cabana Boy for these 4 ladies on their 4 day holiday. I don’t think men could get away with this… but I’m willing to try next time I go away with the guys.

Awesome Software of the Week:
Humble Bundle 6 – Cross platform
Humble Bundle is back! You pick what you pay for 5 awesome ‘Indie‘ game, including the award winning Torchlight. You will unlock a 6th title if you donate more than the current average, which is just under $6 right now, and for an additional $1 you get keys to add them to Steam. Think of it this way, you decide how much goes to the vendor, the developers and a charity! What could be better, in fact I’ve bought 3 Humble Bundles so far. Oh, did I mention it is cross platform compatible, so you can play on your Windows PC, Mac and even Linux.
Humble Bundle, this week's best software
