Here we go with this weeks edition of Best of the Week.
Movie Trailer of the Week:
The Last Stand – In theatres January 18th, 2013
Synopsis: The leader of a drug cartel busts out of a courthouse and speeds to the Mexican border, where the only thing in his path is a sheriff and his inexperienced staff. This film will mark a return to acting for veteran action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger, and pair him up with Johnny Knoxville, Harry Dean Stanton and one of my favourite hispanic actors, Luis Guzman.
YouTube Video of the Week:
Angry Birds: Star Wars
They teased us with this one not so long ago, and yesterday (November 8th, 2012) was release day. Just think about what happens when Rovio teams up with Lucasfilm to bring you an all new take on what is probably the most popular game, not played only on PC or Console, of all time. You can pick up your copy, possibly for a price, for the desired platform below.

News Article of the Week:
President Obama wins a second term.
There is no way you could avoid hearing this news, it was everywhere, and dominated Tuesday night’s television lineup. In what was expected to be one of the closest elections in recent history, turned into a steam rolling, with Obama claiming all the swing states with the exception of North Carolina. I’m guessing that binders full of women and threatening to kill Big Bird didn’t help Mitt Romney out at all. Something to note though, Mitt did take ~48% of the popular vote,,, just goes to show how different the Electoral College system is from what we have here in Canada.
Awesome Software of the Week:
Jam with Chrome by Google.
How cool would it be if you could collaborate with your friends to make music online without any instruments? Google has stepped up and given us Jam with Chrome, which does exactly that. You can pick from a large choice of guitars, bass guitars, drums, keyboards and more, and play along with friends online.
I also feel that I will be returning to posting satirical or humorous news articles more… it just felt right.
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
