Weekend Round Up #12

Another week and another load of trailers and new stuff to hit the interwebs. (My students get so frustrated when I say interwebs. In their brain it makes no sense, I, however, laugh at it so...)

First up is the TMNT trailer that dropped earlier this week. I'm not a fan of Michael Bay, especially after sitting through the second Transformers film. I couldn't watch the third. Now, there have been many rumours around this film and many of them have not made the fans happy. Watch the trailer and let me know what you think...



I still can't see Megan Fox as April O'Neil. I tried but I just can't. As for the design of the turtles themselves...I need to see more in order to fully make up my mind. I'm going to see it, regardless, but I'll hold further judgement until I see more from a trailer.

Next, check out this amazing deviantART gallery. Tohad has done some, slightly disturbing, BadAss art reimagining of some of our favourite cartoons.

I'd seriously love to have prints of these adorning the walls of my geeky house. They'd look perfect next to my TARDIS.

Then there was this beautiful, beautiful music from Carnegie Hall.



Honestly, this is so beautiful and fun! And, I don't care what anyone else says, I love the graphics.

This next video is from a TedTalk back in January but I just watched it the other day and thought it was brilliant. Maysoon Zayid is just hilarious...



And, finally, some more nerdy art from the talented people on DeviantART. This time an artist who goes by the name. MyCKs (MyCks Sato)

It's just so cute. Check out the rest of the gallery and then the etsy page.

I hope this weeks post has bought some enjoyment to your day. I need to get back to marking - only a couple of essays left to go. Then some planning...

Have a lovely weekend folks.

Jaime.

  1. You're more accepting than I am. I just can't watch that TMNT movie. 1) Michael Bay needs to stop. He's just awful. 2) Those turtles look awful. And 3) I want to gouge Megan Fox's eyes out with her deformed toe thumbs.

    Overall, a recipe for a disaster that will still do well at the box office because Michael Bay will be sure to insert lots of explosions for the lesser IQ'd viewers...

    1. I also get told I'm too nice. I get the feeling, however, that I'm going to come out of the movie wanting to do the same. I really love the imagery you have presented of gouging eyes out with deformed thumbs. Hmm...is that going to be in the movie?
