How cool would it be to see Star Wars or Star Trek in space? That would be freaking awesome to me. Well, awesome once I got over the sheer terror of being in space and then watch a movie where a lot of things in space blow up. It would be fun. Well, the crew aboard the International Space Station got the privilege of viewing Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That would so cool. Better yet, we got a picture of their theater room. It’s not impressive from a theater standpoint. No large screen or surround sound system, but does it matter? They’re in space! I love how they have their little drink bags as if they’re at the theater enjoying their favorite snacks. What movie would you want to watch while in space?
We’ve all been there. Binging a show on Netflix when after episode 4 or 5 it asks us “Are you still watching.” Netflix means well with this message. It wants to make sure we don’t miss anything and lose our place. Sadly, we also see it as Netflix mocking us. Making us acknowledge our pathetic lives of not having plans outside of watching a show on Netflix that we’ve probably already seen. Well, a new video from Studio C helps illustrate "The 5 Stages of Netflix". Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. You may recognize these as the five stages of grief, but I assure you it can apply to Netflix as well. How often do you find yourself in this vicious cycle while watching your favorite shows?
The new Star Wars trilogy is already chock full of cameos. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see all of the cameos since some get cut before the theatrical release. This includes Prince Harry. However, that makes the cameos we do see a little more special. Mark Hamill took to Twitter recently to thank Rian Johnson for not cutting his three children from the film. The three had cameos as members of the Resistance and it’s great to see that these kids were able to be in the same movie as their dad. It’s also great to see some positive vibes between Hamill and Johnson since a lot of people are focusing on their differing opinions for Luke. What’s your favorite cameo in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
Thanks for not letting @NathanHamill @GriffinHamill & @chelseahamill wind-up on #TheLastJedi cutting-room floor @rianjohnson! And for allowing my one directorial note: "Pop-up FASTER or Oscar'll block ya!" on the 2nd & final take. #MyKidsCoolCameoAsRebelScum pic.twitter.com/TVRVE5lwHf— @HamillHimself (@HamillHimself) December 29, 2017
Do you want to go back and refresh yourself of what happened in the second season of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things? Well, you can do it in less than 5 minutes and in LEGO form with the help of bookshelfproductions. It is important to note that this is not a perfect recap. Many things are dropped that are key to the plot and story. However, it’s a fun video that does help remind you the overall story of the second season without really spoiling anything. The video itself is fantastic and the stop motion is done very well. If you want or need a recap of the first season, you can watch their LEGO recap for that season here. What’s your five-minute recap of Stranger Things’ second season?
If you have the LEGO BB-8 Building Kit, you can modify it to add remote control functionality. It takes some work and extras like the SBRICK, but Sariel’s LEGO Workshop provides detailed instructions on how to get everything built as well as how to set it up on your phone. If you own a PlayStation 4, you can even set up the BB-8 RC to use your PS4 controller as an input. It’s important to note that BB-8 RC does not roll around like in the movies, but has wheels it rolls on. This makes it great on flat hard surfaces, but it makes it hard if not impossible to work on rugs and carpet. Is this a mod you’d be interested in?
Shenron is a magical dragon in Dragon Ball that is summoned once you have gathered all seven Dragon balls together. He is then able to grant you any one wish (until later when he can do 2). If that sounds pretty awesome, you should know that he has been “summoned” on a beach in Reville, France. Street artists Blesea and Baby K have painted Shenron’s head on a blockhouse on the beach and it looks amazing. In the photos you can see a before shot as a reference for you. Also, there’s a video from Mogab Productions you can watch that has a time-lapse of the artists at work. What would you wish for if you could summon the mighty Shenron?
I was a little late to the Seven Deadly Sins party, but I love that show now. I haven’t had the time to go back and read the 246 chapters of the manga, but I really liked the first season of the anime and was really disappointed when I went to watch season 2 and it was a four-episode OVA. By the time I had watched the anime it had already been out for about a year or two and with the current model of how we consume our entertainment, I was left feeling unsatisfied. However, we should soon be able to watch the true second season of this great anime. According to Inquisitr, season two will premiere January 6, 2018, on Netflix and I’m sure it will be awesome. With that release date in mind, Yonkou Productions released a poster the other day on their Twitter to help build the hype of Season 2 and it looks promising.

I’m excited to see Meliodas put that awesome looking dagger/short sword to use. From what I’ve gathered, the other person in the poster is named Zeldris and according to Anime Mojo:
If you haven’t seen this anime yet, I highly recommend it. Here’s a synopsis to give you a rough idea of what it has in store for you:
I loved The Fairly Oddparents as a kid and I still love to see the occasional clip from the show. It brings a smile to my face. I will be honest and say that I'm not normally a fan of Jonathan Young. He tends to put too much reverb on his vocal tracks which bothers me. However, I really like his metal cover of the theme song for The Fairly Oddparents. He gets some crazy shredding thanks to ToxicXEternity and it sounds great. I think my favorite part though is the piano interlude/solo section. It helps bring back some of the jazzy elements of the original theme, but it doesn't feel terribly out of place.
John Williams has composed the music for all eight main Star Wars films and it looks like he’s going to help out with Solo: A Star Wars Story. John Powell will compose the vast majority of the score and I’m sure that it will be fantastic. He did, after all, compose the scores for the How to Train Your Dragon films as well as the Bourne movies. However, to have Williams write the main theme for Han Solo is just phenomenal. I love his work and think he’s a fantastic composer. The information comes from an interview with Variety where Williams says:
The fact that Williams is anxious to hear Powell's work just adds to my excitement for this score. Are you excited for Solo? What about the score? With Williams involved, it's hard not to be excited about that.
Have you ever thought to yourself, “I’m pretty good at sculpting in that game Cranium. Everyone’s able to guess what it is. I should quit my job and go into sculpting?” After watching this video, you may reconsider that idea of you already being an amazing sculptor. Steven Richter creates this amazing Hulk bust based off of Thor: Ragnarok. Don’t despair though. If you love sculpting, don’t let this bring you down. Richter has years of practice and works for Tom Spina Designs which is a company that restores film props and models. This is his job. He just happens to also work at home and give us awesome art on the side. If you like sculpting, I hope you are able to use this as inspiration. If you don’t like sculpting, I hope you’re able to watch this video in complete awe as I did. What’s your best sculpture been?
