28 Weeks Later Trailer
Also from I watch Stuff is the new 28 Weeks Later Trailer. It looks good and let's hope it expends on the first movie and treats it well. Rather than cashing in on a good movie.
Also make sure you check out Sunshine, whcih is in cinemas next week. Thats Danny Boyle's latest film (he didnt direct 28 Weeks) and it kicks A hole. Think 2001 meets Alien meets Cape Fear meets Event Horizon.
View the sexy HD trailer on quicktime here.
And if you're into movie posters you can go past the best with Posterwire.

Official Home Owner
I now officially own the apartment I live in, having settled on Thursday. I had no idea it took that long to get all the paperwork and what not done. The 6 weeks flew by though.

Youtube and Content Ratings
Why doesn't Youtube have a standard for rating content like movies and video games? The USA has the MPAA and Australia has the Office of Film and Literature. I find the Aussie rating system makes much more sense than the USA one. Something rated R in the US is MA here which seems more fitting.
It seems videos on Youtube fall into 2 categories right now. General and 18+ (flagged)
Why not have a system that allows you to choose between videos that are like film and video games. You could also filter out stuff like sex, language and adult themes. That way if I set my Youtube account to say let me see everything, then I never have to click I agee to watch this video. However if I say I will be offended by sex scenes or nudity then it will not let me watch them unless I agree to do so.
In reverse it'll also let me search for videos that contain nudity and sex.
For me I'll watch most things and I;m not that easily offended but for the millions out there that can't even say Hell or Shit then Youtube must be a minefield of scary content.
The Only Grind House Review You need TO read
This is quite possibly the funniest review I've ever read.
Here's a few take aways.
DEATH PROOF is about this dude, Driver Mike, and he’s played by Kurt Plissken, and goddamn but that dude just gets more bad-ass as he gets older. You know how Sly Stallone kind of looks like Bea Arthur now, and Jean-Claude Van Damme looks like Ally Sheedy? Well, Kurt Plissken looks like a dumpster full of drop kicks. He could fuck a bulldozer into eight Mini Coopers. Fuck, I should pitch that to someone.
That’s what GRINDHOUSE is. It’s a taquito buffet that you puke up after getting hit with a motorcycle, and it turns into a bikini chick that blows you and kills your boss with a hammer.

Flaming Lips Concert with Lasers
How to make a concert interactive and fun? Give everyone red pointer lasers.
God of War 2
Wholly shit this game looks awesome. This is why your Wii might gather some dust.
PS3 Launch in Australia
This is a lesson to all marketers about how to launch a product. Or maybe a lesson in not how to do it. This was a photo taken hours before the midnight release of the PS3 at Pitt St Mall. Right in the centre of Sydney its the shopping area for these type of events.
Compare this with the image below from the Xbox launch.
With about 1,000+ people, there wasn't enough room to swing a Wiiremote

Life on the Playstation
hehe the entire campaign for this is just as left field. I love it.
These album quilts are a great idea. I've also started tracking the songs I listen to on Last.FM. Add me as a friend. Unless you're a weirdo in that case just view my profile and touch yourself.

LED Faucet/Tap Lights
I love the Think Geek newsletter. As you get stuff like this sent to yuor inbox. Sadly this will only work for USA taps.
Tired of that same old monotonous water? Bored with water that doesn't look like futuristic alien mouthwash? Need to make your midnite bathroom appointments more exhilarating? Then you need to get the LED faucet light attachment from ThinkGeek. You can turn any faucet in your home into a streaming fantasia of techie-bliss in just minutes. How does it work? Just attach to the end of your faucet (universal adapters included), and when the water flows through the magic chamber, it simply turns on the LED array and illuminates the stream with soothingly powerful hues.
But wait, there's more! You get to choose between two different Faucets.
Blue LED - Always streams BLUE LED's
Workplace Safety Video
It;s a shortfilm not a real workplace video but it'd quite good. In a Evil Dead/Final Destination kind of way.

Porn for photographers
The sweet sound of 10 fps on the new Canon EOS-1D Mark III
Slowly running out of taboos but you still cant help but laugh.
Here's CNN reporting opn the show
The guys that made Alien Homindoid have a new game for Xbox Live Arcade (which means a $10 game) and it looks killer. It's also multiplayer on live so that multiplies the killer by 4
It's Wii's Mees meets Second Life. I like the way you can play mini games within the world and it looks like a cool addition and expansion to XBOX's live.
THe console wars will soon be in a proper way battle. The Wii still rules for parties but sucks with online content.

Apple Ads Worldwide
I didn't know they made localised versions of these ads. How ignorant of me. The guys in the UK one are form a sitcom called Peep Show which is pretty funny.

Build Your Own Weapon Entries
I sorted many of the Build Your Own Weapon entries (all 12,000 of the fuckers) into smaller groups.
I'll say it again that this is still the fav comp I've been involved in and I can't belive the time spent on these entries. Some of these are 2 years old as we ran the comp at the end of 2004.
