Varla Fabulous…

Varla’s new video of the old Tracy Chapman song. I’ve aways liked that she does her own singing.

Board Favorite

This is a 3D re-creation of my favorite board game as a kid. I loved anything having to do with the Haunted Mansion.

The Saga Begins

Because the Ratchet & Clank series is one of my favorite for the PlayStation system (and still an exclusive), here’s a quick telling of the origins.

NOM can’t make good on their threats. Seems no one wants to donated to a blustering, hate group. Ha Ha!

Requiem For A Circuit

Tron Uprising Title

Tron Uprising is one of the few programs I can’t wait to watch each week. Sadly, it looks like Tron Uprising will not get a 2nd season. The only reprieve is if a channel other than Disney XD picks it up. The producers have said they are already working on Season 2. But it may be all for nothing…

The main problem is that the Disney XD audience [IE – tweens] is not the proper channel for Tron Uprising [IE – Adults and maybe teens]. There are no goofy, under-age antics. No young actors being the center of attention to the sound of a recorded laugh track. Just a great story-line of rebellion set among a glowing city of computer circuits. Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim would be perfect.

Tomorrow the soundtrack is released so I can keep reliving it. It is scored by Joseph Trapanese who worked with Daft Punk on Tron Legacy, so it has the same feel as TL.

I’ll miss you, Beck.

Looking for some laughs in your podcast rotation? The Mitzi Morris Show is hysterical. And the episodes are under 20 minutes each so they never drag on.
