Sweet Short: ‘Dream Giver’ by Tyler Carter

The Dream Giver from the short film Dream Giver by Tyler CarterTyler Carter’s short film Dream Giver is one that looks like it could be pretty creepy at first, seeing as there is a fairly creepy looking  creature sneaking into children’s bedrooms at night.  But as the name implies, this is a Dream Giver, a creature that delivers good dreams to children whilst they lie sleeping.

The animation is also absolutely stunning.  More so when you realize this was done as a student project for BYU’s Center for Animation.

Check it out.

Star Wars Carbon Freeze Me Experience At Walt Disney World's Star Wars Weekends

You don't want this to happen to you. Or do you...?!

The Carbon Freeze Me Experience gives you a keepsake that you can put up on your wall.  And what is this keepsake?  Well as the name suggests, it’s you, frozen in “carbonite”… Read the rest of this entry »

If Diablo 3 Were A Girl

A girl covering a guy's eyes from the IFHT video If Diablo 3 Were a GirlDiablo III is finally here.  After over a decade of waiting.  And while the video game is sure to be amazing.  But what if the game was a woman?

I know, I know.  What the hell am I talking about?

I’m talking about a video by IFHT, which stands for I Fucking Hate That.  They have made a pretty fantastic and funny video about what it might be like if your love affair with Diablo III was made corporeal.  Check it out.

Supercut Saturday: Get Out of There!

Jason Statham with long hair, on a cell phone.A supercut is a massive compilation highlighting a very specific element of movies or television. Usually this is used to point out an overused cliché. Sometimes it is used to highlight the idiosyncrasies of a particular artist, usually an actor. These supercuts are usually used to criticize but can also be a celebration.

Seeing as last week’s supercut was about people being put into bad situations at a moments notice, I thought this one would be a bit kinder.  Today’s supercut is about people being warned that a bad situation is about to happen and they should “get out of there.”  Granted, most of the time this warning comes too late.  But hey, at least they were warned.

Check it out.

"Trim the hedges, I must. Shaped like a mouse, they shall be."

So let’s see… Disney has a legendary movie studio.  They also have a collection of the most famous theme parks in the world.  They own ABC and ESPN.  They own Marvel Entertainment.  Gosh, what else do they do?

Um, they apparently do an annual Star Wars Weekends event at the Walt Disney World Resort to honor everyone’s favorite space-themed science fiction series (that’s right Trekkies, I said it).

What are Star Wars Weekends?  Um, the best theme park event in the history of theme parks… Read the rest of this entry »

‘Downton Arby’s’ – A ‘Downton Abbey’ Parody

A close up of a note from the Downton Abbey parody Downton Arby'sDownton Abbey has been kind of a phenomenon.  This past awards season the show received all kinds of nominations, snagging a few Emmys in the process.  And with good reason.  It is hard to find someone that will say a bad word about it.  But with success comes parody, and this one is awesome.

Downton Arby’s reenacts the plot of Downton Abbey but set within a singular Arby’s franchise.  It’s pretty great, with a great performance from the wonderful Richard Kind.  Check it out.

‘The Idle Quest’ Episode 5: “A Magic Moment”

Ian Wallace as Max in the fifth episode of season one of The Idle QuestA month ago I posted about episode one and episode two of The Idle Quest, my web series about slacker wizards.  Episode three sent our wizards our on their journeys, and episode four saw them encounter conflict along the way to their goals.  Now, with episode five  we have reached the finale for season one!  Max and Stuart will have to figure out how to solve their problems.

And they choose some fairly unorthodox (and over zealous) paths.  So now kick back and enjoy the finale of season one where we go out with a bang.  Literally.  (Not literally).  But it is still totally worth watching.

Bring Magic To Life With Incantor, A Real World MMO Game

Incantor video game for smartphones.

Wand + Smartphone = EpicFunTime

So you’re probably confused by the title.  That’s okay.  I am too.

Bring magic to life?  How?  By using a physical wand that you use to cast virtual spells.

A real world Mass-Multiplayer Online Game?  Isn’t that an oxymoron?  Well, yes and no.  MMO because it’s played in the online community via your smartphone.  But real world because you physically walk around and interact with other Incantors.  By waving your wand and casting spells.  At each other.  Like in a duel.  Holy shit.

My Harry Potter senses are tingling…

“Tell me more!  Tell me more!” you say.  Well read on, I say… Read the rest of this entry »
