That awkward moment…

I’m sure there are a few people wondering about this…

Cosmos/Star Trek Enterprise mashup

Sometimes, mash ups are too easy to make. That was the case for putting the theme for Star Trek Enterprise underneath the rebooted Cosmos opening credits. About a week ago, a few of us were out for pints, when my good friend Andrew mentioned that the two synced up perfectly.

Album review: Tomorrow’s Harvest by Boards of Canada

Boards of Canada have always been one of ‘those’ bands for me. The kind of band you heard once at a club, and the track caught your attention enough to ask the DJ about, but never quite get around to really checking out.
On the occasions I’ve heard them, I’ve liked them but never got around to sinking myself into their discography. Back in the spring, I stumbled across their website and noticed they had a new album, called “Tomorrow’s Harvest”, due out soon. Even then, it wasn’t until a few …

Bionic Antboy webcomic

Shameless self-promotion time. Bionic Antboy is a weekly web comic that originally started out as a video game idea a long time ago. Since The Practical Dead is in an on-again/off-again state of flux, I started working on Antboy when time afforded it. Now, with 4 months worth of pages under my belt, and more pages already in the can, it’s probably a good time to share it.

If this is October then there must be undead in Toronto

It’s October again, which means, for Toronto, a whole lot of undead happenings.  Beside the Toronto Zombie Walk (and Halloween Parade), two great live horror film adaptations return to Hogtown. At Fan Expo 2013, we had a chance to talk for a few moments with Christopher Bond and Mike “Nug” Nahrgang about their involvement with the upcoming productions of both “Evil Dead the Musical” and “Night of the Living Dead Live“.
After that is a bonus interview that was originally recorded at Fan Expo 2012, and thought to be lost when we had a hard …

Timelapse Video on effects of aging reveals something unexpected

A video project called “Danielle”, released by filmmaker Anthony Cerniello attempts to portray the effects of aging on the face, and does so to good effect, but it also reveals something I personally found more interesting.  I’d recommend watching the video before reading the rest of this article, as there are some spoilers ahead.

Danielle from Anthony Cerniello on Vimeo.
First, a little background.  Last year, Cerniello went to his friend Danielle’s family reunion, and took photos of many of her extended family members.  From there, he selected the photos of members who had the most similar bone …

World War Z trailer launches, unfortunately

After moving back the release of World War Z from December to the summer of 2013, it’s not surprising that the trailer is getting a lot of buzz.  Too bad that before the end of the first minute of the trailer, I already didn’t give a crap.
The trailer opens with Brad Pitt and his family stuck in NYC gridlock.  Every lane is packed with cars, and Brad Pitt gets out to see what’s going on.  There’s an explosion far up ahead… so far so good.  Something ominous, and unexplained fireworks in downtown …

The Practical Dead

This post is both a shameless self-promotion and an explanation of sorts. Over the past while, the site has been quieter than usual. While there’s still more to come from Fan Expo, and we’ll still be writing other pieces, a lot of time has gone into another endeavour – The Practical Dead. It’s a new web comic written and drawn by myself and RGB’s own Rebel Scum. What is The Practical Dead you ask?

Fan Expo 2012 – Tom Noonan

When we stopped by actor Tom Noonan’s table at Fan Expo, we weren’t expecting to get one of our favourite quotes from the whole event. That’s just what he delivered though, when we asked him his take on movie remakes, when he compares them to someone sleeping with your girlfriend, though he’s a bit more blunt about it…

When Kinect meets dubstep

Ever since its launch, the Kinect has been a favourite for people to experiment with what can be done with motion controls. In what could be the coolest mash up to date, a pretty big team of talented individuals combined for the V Motion Project.
