Tarantino’s upcoming western


Michael Fassbender Shines as David

Here’s the latest viral video for Prometheus featuring a sublime performance by Michael Fassbender as David, the film`s artificial protagonist or antagonist – can`t be certain which side David will lean towards just yet. If you are familiar at all with the Alien franchise, you would know that robots have either been a technological blessing or an astronaut`s worst nightmare (2001`s Hal 9000 rings-a-bell). In the past, the franchise`s artificial counterparts have been played brilliantly (Ian Holm as Ash in Alien; Lance Henriksen as Bishop in Aliens) and Fassbender`s performance in this clip proves that Alien fans have nothing to worry about – this robot is in good hands!

Someone has a splitting headache...

Let the Right One In – Pool Scene

As promised in a previous post, here’s the pool scene from Let the Right One In (Tomas Alfredson, 2008). For me, this scene exemplifies one of the greatest explorations of mise en scène that I’ve seen in cinema in the last five years. The clip below is a tad long but if you toggle between the 5:30 – 5:40 mark, you will not be disappointed!

I highly recommend you see this gem of a film and even the recent American remake by Cloverfield director, Matt Reeves’ Let Me In (2010). Enjoy! Oh did I mention that the scene below is a bit graphic…just a little FYI.

International Prometheus Trailer

The Origin of our Species?

Is it just me or do the trailers for Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi spectacular Prometheus keep getting better and better? And this one definitely takes the cake. We are given more narrative hints as to what the film is really about. I find it pretty funny how Scott, producers, and writers keep denying that this is not an Alien prequel, but as each trailer has been released, greater ties to the Alien franchise are evident. For instance, in the latest International trailer, if you pay close attention, you actually see what appears to be a full moving figure that uncannily resembles Alien’s space jockey. I haven’t been so pumped for a science fiction film since probably District 9.

What do you think? Will Prometheus live up to the hype?

Great examples. A more contemporary example for me is the concluding pool scene of Let the Right One In. Will try to post it later.

Apple Seeking Quality Engineers To Expand Into Automobile Manufacturer

Was waiting for Apple to get in the automobile game!

SoshiTech - Soshitech.com

As of now, Apple does not make any automobiles on the market, officially. Mercedes-Benz announced when the next generation “infotainment” system launches with Apples voice-recognition software it will be Apple’s biggest move toward the car industry yet.

An original apple post stated “Apple(China) Looking for SQE/NPI with over 4 years Mechanical engineering background familiar with CNC/die casting/stamping/plastic injection, can use APQP/ PPAP/SPC to control product quality.”

Two weeks ago search went underway on LinkedIn for a Supplier Quality Engineer with experience in CNC. The project is currently display as “undisclosed” leaving us all to wonder what Apple has up their sleeve next.

Birdman – YU Mad ft. Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne

Okay, I’m not the biggest hip-hopper around, but have to admit that this is a catchy track. Birdman/Lil Wayne are hit or miss for me, but  digging this one. And is it just me or is it hard to take Lil Wayne seriously?! On the other hand, he’s actually quite likeable because he’s always looking like he’s having the time of his life. Enjoy!

Ridley Scott meet TED

I like viral video campaigns as much as the next person, but really enjoy the cleverness of this teaser for the much anticipated ‘unofficial’ Alien prequel, Prometheus. Watch this video and you’ll realize that the connection of this film to the Alien series is much clearer than what has been previously disclosed. The last moments should spell it out for you.

I think the constant need to remind people that this isn’t an Alien movie has worked in their favour of creating a lot of buzz around its release. However, what the trailers and this video are really saying is that, “Okay, you got us! It’s definitely an Alien movie”.

Goodbye Battery Charger, Say Hello to ‘Power Felt’!

Woah, I know 'Power Felt'


I’m always amazed at the speed in which smartphones, computing and overall digital technology is constantly changing the way we interact with the world, but this is just plain cool and very eco-friendly might I add.

You may have heard of the Powermat, wirelessly charging your electronic devices by placing your device on a flat mat. Yeah – this blows that out of the water! ‘Power Felt’ is a fabric material that can use your body heat and turn it into an electrical current, thus being able to charge your phone, and who knows what else in the future. Check out the video above. The technology isn’t exactly there yet to be practical, but it will.
