Sheldon at Center of Big Bang Theory Universe

Another whiteboard session on BBT last night, Amy demonstrating thru diagram how everyone wouldn't know each other without Sheldon.  Some funny names on there, esp. 'Kooth'.  Maybe Jim Parsons can use this to get that bigger contract they've been pining for.

Captain Picard sings Let It Snow

'Tis the season for wacky stuff like this I guess.  The amount of work involved with a supercut mashup of this nature must be immense. But where there's a will, and an interweb......

I do not own Star Trek or Let It Snow.

The Internet Is Coming - Final IT Crowd Episode

Nice folks over at Channel4 have made it watchable on YouTube!

Sad to see it go, but it had a good run.  We had some good laughs about stuff from it and in comparison these days, the geek levels remained high compared to Big Bang Theory which has drifted into mainstream 'relationship drama' territory.  Won't make any comment about the final ep other than it's length is a bit unusual for the regularly 22 minute show or whatever... not sure they knew how to expand it into an hour.  Enjoy nonetheless!

Cheers & thanks for the IT support, Roy, Moss and Jen.

In a World...No, Somewhere in Space... - Star Wars 1976 Teaser Trailer

"Somewhere in Space, this may all be happening right now..."

This is the original teaser trailer for Star Wars released yesterday on the official Star Wars youtube channel.  It's rough but worth a watch to see the beginnings of what would come. (thank god what came later was so much better)

  "the story of a boy, a girl, and a universe"

There. Are. Four. Takes. - Patrick Stewart Demonstrates

No words.

Actually, a lot of words. Patrick Stewart's girlfriend on the random filming? (vertical mistake too) feet? Stewart gets ladies by teaching 'masterclasses'? He really is at the top of his game/living life these days isn't he?

In A World... If that doesn't say Movie Trailer to you...

Andrew stumbled upon this trailer for some sort of indie type film about a girl trying to break into the movie trailer voiceover business.  Thought the title was pretty good. First thing you think of when you hear 'In A World...' right?

Lake Bell girl reminds of kid from Moonshine Kingdom...I mean, Moonrise Kingdom- Kara Hayward but grown up.

Anyways, speaking of movie trailer voices..and movie trailers about movie trailer voices.  The classic Jerry Seinfeld 'Comedian' movie one is worth a rewatch:

And if you're really feeling that vibe, here's the king Don LaFontaine (RIP) talking about the biz:

Admiral Motti might be dead but we know from Orientation Day he'll be back?

As we learned during Orientation Day on the jolly ol' Death Star, Lord Vader likes to think he has the power to strangle....

Truth about Vader is that he doesn't have the power to choke. But if he ever found out he'd kill us all with his lightsaber.

Really what this is about is that the real original force-choke victim, Richard LeParmentier, aka Admiral Motti, died today. RIP. (src:

Jurassic Park Re-release Looks A Bit Homemade

Hmmm, the new Jurassic Park doesn't look as remastered as I thought it would. Or 3-D.

SkyDome Big - Star Trek TNG Cast Reports to the Bridge in Toronto

It wasn't that long ago we marveled at the TNG cast reunion, the stuff of dreams, taking place at the somewhat odd and unexpected event of the Calgary Comic Expo in May.  The cast seems to all get along really well, and obviously the demand for such a thing isn't going down anytime soon, so a stopover in Canada's largest city Toronto was bound to happen.  It was minus a few crew members of seasons past, @wilw and Tasha Yar.  But that's ok, we get enough Wheaaatttonnn on BBT and Tasha Yar was killed off so early by that black tar pool.

I won't get into photo lifting and video posting in this post -- the newer/rogue 'fanexpo'-type event was somewhat under-reported  but still some dedicated fans have been posting photos and scouring for great moments after the fact. Two I happened upon stand out and should be all you need.

One is this German (?) guy who's archived tons of great photos. Bilder und Videos von der Toronto ComiCon

And then there this humorous rundown on HuffPoCA of the 47 Best Moments Of An Evening With The Cast

Back to the Drawing Board - BTTF in 60 Seconds

This wasn't quite what I was expecting when I opened it, but it's pretty well done anyways.  Could have used some more lines from the movie I thought.  Marty! It's not you, it's your drawings!

Trek Wars - Casino Royale

All good ensemble casts and universes have a poker game.

Not exactly new, think it was a shirt for sale years ago -- but relevant on all the frenzy surrounding J.J. Abrams taking the directing helm for the new Disney Star Wars (Episode...7?) as well as already being at the reigns of the rebooted Star Trek franchise.

So Yesterday I Saw a Story About Cheese. Burning Cheese. I had to post.

Norway goat cheese fire closes tunnel

Brunost (file photo courtesy of TINE)  
A road tunnel in Norway has been closed - by a lorry-load of burning cheese.

About 27 tonnes of caramelised brown goat cheese - a delicacy known as Brunost - caught light as it was being driven through the Brattli Tunnel at Tysfjord, northern Norway, last week.
The fire raged for five days and smouldering toxic gases were slowing the recovery operation, officials said.

The tunnel - which is said to be badly damaged - is likely to remain closed for several weeks, they added.

"We can't go in until it's safe," geologist Viggo Aronsen told Norwegian broadcaster NRK.
Police officer Viggo Berg said the high concentration of fat and sugar in the cheese made it burn "almost like petrol if it gets hot enough".

The lorry driver had noticed the fire in his trailer and abandoned it about 300m (1,000ft) from the southern entrance. No-one was hurt.

Kjell Bjoern Vinje, of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, said it was the first time he could remember cheese catching fire on Norwegian roads.

"I didn't know that brown cheese burns so well," he said.
