Dylan Cuffy10,308#WhatLiesAground Well...you've been waiting for days, so I'll give it to you now.Welcome to the final edition of what I now dub the Fab 500! Time to say hello (and happy Easter) to this bunch of fine folks.

Danial Hallock10,323No Name NeededIt's getting close to the Holiday Season, and the whole point of this particular part of the season is to "give thanks" to the people (or, in America, things) that have positively impacted your life.  For me, these are those people.You all should remember my initial circle The Three Hundred (http://goo.gl/kqE8h) which was well received at 251 +1s and 48 reshares.  This circle was my first round of hyper-vetting individuals for circling, based on a lot of criteria that was centered around high quality content and a high level of engagement.  I think I combed through about 2,300 profiles on a one-by-one basis before arriving at the final product.That circle then morphed into the The Collaborative Circle (http://goo.gl/Ex9ai) which was less publicized, but still racked in 90 +1s and 13 reshares.  This circle was based on the premise that "If four people from The Three Hundred enjoy person X, then I should also enjoy them."  Well, the combination of these circles lead to an interesting scenario in which I was able to locate all stars through a combination of overlap and relevance (via Google algorithms).  Out popped these twenty five individuals, and I could not be happier with the results.  These are twenty-five individuals in which I am subscribed, their posts are always enjoyable as well as insightful, and the notification stream keeps me engaged throughout the day.Whether you're looking at the tech news from +Mike Elgan, the social and scientific commentary of +Yonatan Zunger, or the general internet awesomeness that is the enigma of +Sarah Rios, you're not going to be disappointed.I normally only notify people that are contained within a circle, but these people are too awesome not to be guilty of a little plus-spam;  feel free to request a removal from the notified (all) circles.(Link to this post: http://goo.gl/AlsXG5) #nonameneeded   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircle  2013-11-13 23:53:242639671CC G+

Jake Kern24,894The Silver DonutBeen wanting to do a circle share for a while, but I just haven't wanted to put in the work to get a group of 100 for another #GoldenDonut. Instead, I grabbed the top 500 from my Google relevancy algorithm. Then I removed a couple people who don't like being in circle shares & some pages so I could stretch the 500 a bit. (For instance, both +Melissa Bagley & +Melissa Ann Bagley Photography would be in the circle--in the top 25, actually--but I just included Melissa's personal profile even though you should circle both.)Many amazing people in here. Thank you for making this corner of the Internet worthwhile.Peace. #SilverDonut  2013-07-13 22:19:3849915024134CC G+
Mz Maau10,204I rarely share circles, and I regret to inform, this is not the promised #CircleDirk , rather, it's a circle I've been semi-maintaining since last spring, when it was created for +Pierce Arner to jump-start his Plus experience.Today, I'm resharing the current version on behalf of +Søren Dalsgaard Brath, who, like Pierce, is looking for new content for his stream.I figure he and I probably have a chunk of overlap, so I've added a few extras he might not yet know about.Some notes about the curation of this circle:I've tried to set aside those who have not posted recently, and I've tried to only include those who post publicly, or to extended circles.  I may have missed a few, and if you're in this circle and would like to be permanently removed, please let me know.This is not the final version, as I'm not sure such a thing is possible.This circle DOES come with a warning:You will, most likely, NOT enjoy everyone in this circle.  I, like many, have eclectic tastes, and I'm still a bit gun-shy after seeing some of the explosions from last year's crossing of the streams, so PLEASE, edit this circle to your liking with that in mind.If I ping you, you're in the circle.  There is no expectation or requirement to add this circle, it's merely a courtesy ping.  Again, if you would like to be removed from any future circle shares, please let me know.And yes, I promise, I'm still working on the #CircleDirk .Also note:  This is NOT an indication of who I like best, though some are included in this circle.  It is simply meant to be a sample of the diversity I follow.#PinkAndFluffyPersonsOfQuestionableRepute2013-06-22 16:38:09164143576CC G+

Melissa Bryan25,213Circles Everywhere!Over the past couple of days I have been shared in some really awesome circles.  It reminded me how long it's been since I shared one of my own.  And with all the new people around, I figured it might be helpful.  These 200 lovely plussers were chosen by google's magic as being the most relevant to me (minus a few pages and the people who don't use G+).  I went through them and can assure you that these are all top notch characters (well, mostly :p).  They definitely make google+ the amazing place that it is.  Just, be prepared for shenanigans.  If you were notified, you are in the circle.  I don't ever notify, so hopefully you guys don't mind this one.2013-05-18 18:18:01200157597CC G+

Blair Kunkel5,687ATTENTION - Since my original snowball circle(Share Circle #1) circle grew so fast it reached over 2,000 members!  It has been brought to my attention that each time the circle is shared and added to YOUR circles, you are only able to add under 500 people. SO...to make sure that this circle of awesome people continues to grow, I have divided all 2,000 members into 7 other share circles(so far) and each of those share circles 2-7 are starting out with 400 members each. That will allow each circle to snowball up to 100 more members each.  Once each of those circles reach 500 members, I will create a new share circle...and so on and so on.--------------------------------------------------Welcome to SHARE CIRCLE #2--------------------------------------------------Want to be added to this SNOWBALL CIRCLE and increase the number or your followers?  To be added to this circle you must do these things in this order:1.  You must PLUS the post.2.  You must SHARE the post.3.  You must ADD the circle.(Remember, you can only have 5,000 people in your circles overall so make sure you have the room to add everyone in this circle first)4   And lastly, you must comment below when you have done the three above to let me know.Just want to remind you that in order for me to add you to this circle you MUST share this circle.  I always check the activity and I see who shares it and also +1's it too.

Hulk Smash Smallville

It's an often asked question. Who would win if Hulk fought Superman.

Well.... guaranteed who wouldn't win? The unfortunate town where the fight took place.

Marvel Fan Art - Hulk vs. Thing

Perhaps one of the longest running rivalries in Marvel Comics… in superhero comics as a whole, is The Incredible Hulk vs. The Thing. Going all the way back to Fantastic Four #12 and perhaps more significantly their full on battle in Fantastic Four #25. Hulk is clearly the stronger of the two (by a log way) although Thing has never quite been prepared to admit that fact.

This artwork by uncannyknack shows the two titans going one on one right in the middle of a city and while they’re both in good shape, everything else is collapsing around them.

Remarkably this powerful art is billed as a work in progress.

Doctor Who Fan Art - Welcome Doctor

There isn't a lot of 12th Doctor fan art out there yet and most of what I've seen is a direct sketch from the publicity stills. Hopefully that will change once more footage is available so people get a feel for the character and his actions.

This piece by JeiXtremo caught my eye though with its incorporation of the new title sequence.

Doctor Who Review: S08E02 Into The Dalek

I was really looking forward to this episode. We’re now free of the encumbrance of regeneration and able to see the 12th Doctor in his own environment. Plus a return of the Daleks. Granted Dalek stories have always been hit and miss affairs, but when they work they can be really good.

The episode opened strong with CGI that seemed noticeably better than the giant dinosaur from last week and I loved Peter Capaldi’s delivery of the Doctor’s lines as he insisted on a “please” from the person he rescued. Its that sort of detail that makes this Doctor feel different to what we’ve seen for years now.

And that was just the beginning of the snark and cynicism with the high (low) point being his casual use of someone he knew was about to die in order to gain information to save the rest of his party.

And that was just the beginning of the snark and cynicism with the high (low) point being his casual use of someone he knew was about to die in order to gain information to save the rest of his party.

Phil Ford, who previously wrote The Waters of Mars (a favorite of mine) delivered an episode that emphasised this Doctor’s moral ambiguity while at the same time highlighted the lack of ambiguity in Dalek morals. They believe one thing and they believe it absolutely and openly.

The idea of a good Dalek is an interesting one and something that the script explored well particularly in contrasting the Doctor and his nemesis. It also touched on a theme that has been recurring in recent Dalek episodes. That the Doctor himself hates. That he would make a good Dalek. A statement that clearly shook him.

It would be interesting to watch S01E06 - Dalek back to back with Into The Dalek because they share a lot of thematic elements while approaching the situation very differently and also ending up in a very different place.

I really liked the use of Clara in this episode too. Not only is she central to resolving the crisis with the damaged Dalek, but she also firmly (and physically) puts the Doctor back in his place when he becomes too alien and removed from the situation around him. It is a great moment and not something I can see happening with previous companions or Doctors.

Director Ben Wheatley takes advantage of the miniaturization conceit to come up with some unusual and imaginative shots and angles to tell the story as well as trying to minimize the obvious budget limitations of shooting a full scale Dalek attack on the spaceship.

Hello Danny Pink

Unusually for Doctor Who there’s actually a B-story in this episode. The episode is credited to both Steven Moffat and Phil Ford and it felt like Moffat was basically writing the B-story here which was the introduction of Danny Pink.

It’s obviously intended to be a gradual introduction of the character since he has yet to meet the Doctor. But what that does is give him far more character build up than companions normally get. We’ve seen him flirt (awkwardly) with Clara. We know he was a soldier. And we know he had to kill people. I think he’s going to add an interesting dimension as things go forward.

The New Era Begins

While Deep Breath had a lot of elements in it that were common in the Matt Smith era, Into The Dalek felt new. There were no slapstick moments here. Peter Capaldi wasn’t goofy or silly. His humor was sharp and biting. Clearly the first episode of this season was intended as a transition from what has come before. Now the new era has begun and I’m loving it.

I spent so much time just loving Peter Capaldi’s performance. Clara felt like a more rounded character. The tonal change has really freshened things up. Oh… and this is probably the best Dalek story since… Dalek.___

Into The Dalek.... Tonight!

I'm looking forward to it. Inevitably some people will be unhappy that it's the Daleks again but I enjoy them (mostly). Mainly though I want to see a whole episode where Capaldi gets to be the 12th Doctor without the regeneration clouding the issues.

And if you like this poster out check out the Radio Times site where they have it as a free download.

The Fisher King 30-40% Off At Amazon

I was actually not that big a fan of Robin Williams comedy. His frenetic style and tv persona was a turn off for me.

On the other hand I enjoyed him a lot in some of his more serious acting roles. One particular standout for me is the Terry Gilliam directed movie The Fisher King which Robin Williams co-starred in with Jeff Bridges.

If you haven't seen it you should and if you have seen it, you should own it.

Journey To The West

I was introduced to the characters and story of Journey To The West via the tv show Monkey back in the early 80s. It's a very broad and loose adaptation, but it has lead to a life long fondness for these characters.

So this artwork Protect Our Master!! by Wen Juinn just hits all the right notes.

I love his interpretations of Monkey and Pigsy in the foreground here and the way that Monkey's staff is bending slightly with the force of his blows.

The Over-telling Of Superhero Origins

Over at io9.com they're asking if Superheor movies should focus so much on origin stories. My answer to that is no although I would make an exception for somewhat more obscure characters. But even then I really don't think it's necessary. You can generally cover the key elements of a superhero's origin in the first 15 minutes of a movie (or before the credits).

I think with movies very often they fall back on it as a crutch. Because it's a ready made story and in the case of characters like Superman, Spider-man and Batman it is a pretty cool story. The first time you see it.

But I'd extend that answer and say comics companies (I'm looking at you DC!) need to stop retelling their origin stories all the time as well. I swear if I see one more origin of Superman...

It does look like a nice bathrobe mind you. Perhaps just keep the hood down?

Castle Black

Cerven limped slowly towards the dark fortress that loomed over him.

The bitter southern wind snapped his cloak out behind him, threatening to flay the skin from his bones where it was exposed. Rain soaked him, the chill penetrating deep into his joints. He flexed his fingers, tightening his grip on the staff and continued forwards.

The mountain of fortress had an ominous reputation. It was unlikely that the end of his journey would reward him. That is, if there was anyone to receive him at all. And should he ever finally reach it.

He had been walking since dawn and the sun, could he see it, would be descending in the sky. Yet while Castle Black dominated the horizon it seemed no closer than it had the day before.

It was built on a scale that dwarfed Cerven’s understanding. Beyond anything that men could hope to achieve in this age. And yet, no one came and no one left Castle Black. No lights illuminated its dark stone.

Was it completely deserted he wondered? And if so… what purpose his message?

Marvel Fan Art - Hulk vs. Thing

Perhaps one of the longest running rivalries in Marvel Comics… in superhero comics as a whole, is The Incredible Hulk vs. The Thing. Going all the way back to Fantastic Four #12 and perhaps more significantly their full on battle in Fantastic Four #25. Hulk is clearly the stronger of the two (by a log way) although Thing has never quite been prepared to admit that fact.

This artwork by uncannyknack shows the two titans going one on one right in the middle of a city and while they’re both in good shape, everything else is collapsing around them.

Remarkably this powerful art is billed as a work in progress.

8-Bit Super Mario Decals

By any chance have you always wished that you lived in Super Mario World? Well you’re not alone because my son feels the same way. And if he ever finds out about these vinyl wall decals I’m in trouble.

It’s not just that these decals feature Mario, Koopas and more, it’s that they do it in the 8-bit style of the early Super Mario games only scaled up to wall size.

The package isn’t cheap but they are offering three 26″ x 40″ sheets which apparently translates into dozens of decals. So you can fully decorate a room.

Fleeing The Mountain

“Blind. I’ve been blind.” Bar Oud cursed stumbling along the rough path. The flickering light of his lantern did little to illuminate this dark and long abandoned tunnel. Yet he dare not use the more familiar paths.

The signs were there for any dwarf to see. If they had been looking. And yet, who would credit it? Such faithlessness, and in the heart of the mountain. How many had it touched already. Was he too late?

Who to trust? Where to go? The questions plagued him as he moved onward and upwards along the old passage to the mountain peak. It was a long way up and then down but he had to get word to the King. The warning must be sounded. The enemy stirred again.

How much further? How far had he already come? He was not prepared for a journey like this. No food, no warm clothing and only a knife to protect him. Yet he could not goback.... more »

Fleeing The Mountain

“Blind. I’ve been blind.” Bar Oud cursed stumbling along the rough path. The flickering light of his lantern did little to illuminate this dark and long abandoned tunnel. Yet he dare not use the more familiar paths.

The signs were there for any dwarf to see. If they had been looking. And yet, who would credit it? Such faithlessness, and in the heart of the mountain. How many had it touched already. Was he too late?

Who to trust? Where to go? The questions plagued him as he moved onward and upwards along the old passage to the mountain peak. It was a long way up and then down but he had to get word to the King. The warning must be sounded. The enemy stirred again.

How much further? How far had he already come? He was not prepared for a journey like this. No food, no warm clothing and only a knife to protect him. Yet he could not go back. They knew they had been seen. That their plans were no longer secret.

Pale light shone ahead. The tunnel exit beckoned him. Once free of the mountain he could lose himself in the hills. He would be safe.

A dark silhouette rose up to block the tunnel entrance. Large for a dwarf and solid, he was unmistakable.

“And where do you think you are going Bar Oud?” Rumbled Cumal Sul, a warhammer raised almost casually in one meaty hand though it would do little good in the close quarters of the tunnel.

Bar Oud glanced behind him, but there was no escape that way. There must have been a half dozen of them. Not dwarves. Something else. Their cruel smiles sent a shiver of fear through his body. He pulled his knife free.

Cumal Sul cast his hammer aside. His laughter was like stone grating on stone. But before Bar Oud could lunge forward, the Drole were upon him. Their claws scratched as they swarmed over him. Though smaller in frame, their numbers soon dragged him down and their feet stamped on his hand forcing him to release his knife.

Cumal Sul laughed again as he leant down to look at his captive. “You look to escape?” He mocked. “To send the warning? Then I shall not stop you. For it will do you no good.”

Picking up Bar Oud’s knife in one hand, he grasped the dwarf by the hair with the other. “But there are penalties for disobedience. What do we do to deserters?”

Despite himself, Bar Oud trembled in fear. He tried to struggle, but the Drole just cackled, holding him still, prying his mouth open as Cumal Sul raised the knife.

The pain was overwhelming and afterwards Bar Oud lay there exhausted and feeling helpless in a way he had never experienced before. Cumal Sul gazed down at him in contempt.

“Let him leave.” He instructed the Drole. “If he survives the cold of Bein-faik and makes it down the mountain, let him pass on his message, if he can without tongue or working fingers.”

I'm re-reading The Lord of the Rings at the moment and it's reminded me how much I enjoy traditional epic fantasy with dwarves and elves and without much in the way of modern twists. So I wrote this little piece.

The picture I'm using to illustrate it is by NuttENuttE and while the setting is not right, I sort of picture Cumal Sul looking like this.

Only two weeks until the new Doctor arrives on our screens.

And as little clips like these start to emerge I just get more an more enthusiastic. Not that there was any doubt in my mind that Capaldi would excel in the role, but just at the direction they seem to be moving in.

Misha Collins, The Queen and an Elopus Went Into A Bar...

Stop me if you've heard it before because +Jennifer Irving needs a published science fiction author to write a 140 word max short story featuring Misha Collins, The Queen of England and an Elopus.

It's for charity and the details are in the original post.

Understand that I will keep bugging people about this until I find someone.

Looking For A Published Science Fiction Writer To Write A Super Short Story For Absolutely No Reward!

Well I guess it's for charity actually... No personal reward.

Okay I'm doing something I never do. I'm asking everyone to share this post. Unless you happen to be a published science fiction writer in which case I'm asking for your help.

My wife +Jennifer Irving is participating in GISHWHES 2014 (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen). The event which is co-ordinated by Misha Collins (Castiel in Supernatural) and donates to the charity Random Acts (more details on that can be found here https://www.gishwhes.com/ ). You can also find out more about the team my wife is on #ussdestiel  right here: http://teamussdestiel.tumblr.com/

One of the items on this years list is: Get a previously published Sci-Fi author to write an original story (140 words max) about Misha, the Queen of England and an Elopus*

So... I have roughly 130,000 people following me currently. Most of them register 11 out of 10 on the Geeky Scale. A fair number of them are writers of some persuasion. Some of them may be (or may know) a published writer.

Maximum of 140 words, Misha Collins, the Queen of England and an Elopus...

There's absolutely no reward for your efforts at all...except me saying nice things about you. Which, let's face it is pretty rare.

So please... if you are someone who would do this, or if you know someone get in touch. Otherwise Please share this post

Or I'll sulk.

Stop me if you've heard it before because +Jennifer Irving needs a published science fiction author to write a 140 word max short story featuring Misha Collins, The Queen of England and an Elopus.

It's for charity and the details are in the original post.

Understand that I will keep bugging people about this until I find someone.

No, I Don't Want To Read A Book Where You Lecture Me On... Well... Anything

So I read this post on Queen of Tearling over at IO9 and it sounded kind of interesting until I got to this paragraph:

This is clearly meant to be a feminist take on the heroic journey — to the point where Kelsea even spends a couple of pages looking at classic fantasy books from the Old World (like The Hobbit) and lamenting the lack of female characters. It's also pretty explicitly atheist — Kelsea herself is an atheist, and organized religion is evil and corrupt (although one sympathetic priest is caught between her and his nasty brethren.)

Have female protagonists been lacking in epic fantasy? Yeah I'd say so. Does that mean I want to read a book where the protagonist actually comments on this fact? Fuck no.

Nor do I need yet another story where I get to hear allabo... more »

Incomplete List Of Shows To Watch/ReWatch

Over the summer I've been playing catch up and finally watched Person of Interest Season 3,  Elementary Season 2 and Haven Season 4. So I was trying to figure out what else I wanted to watch and hadn't got round to.

It's quite a long list. Interestingly though my list of shows I'm not going to watch contains many (most?) of the buzzworthy tv shows. Game of Thrones isn't officially on that list but I'm on the fence on that one too.

To Rewatch:
Buffy - Season 4 on
Angel - Season 1 on
Doctor Who - Season 7
Classic Doctor Who - Season 4
Stargate: SG-1 - All Seasons

Shows To Finish Watching:
Misfits - Season 3 on
Being Human (UK Version only) - Season 4 on
Luther - Season 3
Defiance - Season 2
Dominion - Season 1

Bored

Not posting much lately because I'm bored both with the routine of my posting and honestly with what others are posting.

It's all very predictable and uninteresting at the moment.

People are really very dull.

Marvel Unveils Ant-Man Poster - http://bit.ly/1nF7ExG

Marvel’s Ant-Man movie has run into some trouble in the last few months what with the departure of it’s Edgar Wright as director. But Marvel is determined to stick to their schedule and release the movie in July 2015 now with Peyton Reed as the director.

And at Comic-Con they’ve released this teaser poster saying just that.

Looks pretty good don’t you think?

Lord Of The Rings Fan Art - What Can You Find In The Mines Of Moria? - http://bit.ly/1rMd6ya

In this fabulous art by Loopydave the Fellowship of the Ring finds far more than just Orcs in the Mines of Moria (and no I’m not talking about a cave troll).

In fact it turns out there are all sorts of other things. The first two I spotted were Grumpy Cat and Cookie Monster, but that’s just scratching the surface.

Loopydave actually provides a link to a version showing everything that’s hidden in the picture.

The promotion for the final Hobbit movie previously titled There and Back Again and now called The Battle of the Five Armies (not sure why they added a the into the title) has begun. The movie hits theaters on December 12th and with Comic-Con upon us there is a poster!

Smaug looks angry.

There will likely have a teaser trailer at the Con and hopefully online not too long after.

Epic Level LEGO Map of Middle-Earth - http://bit.ly/1nyzk7x

Really incredible work here from Christoph Bartneck.

He has painstakingly re-created the map of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth in topographical style from LEGO. And he’s done it on a grand scale. The resulting map is apparently 2 meters by 2 meters (thats roughly 6.5 x 6.5 feet) in size and contains 30,000 bricks. It’s built up in 7 levels and took him 4 months to complete.

He’s even put the breadcrumb trail of the Fellowship’s path across Middle-Earth in there. Oh and all the major characters from the book are represented in the appropriate geographical locations via their LEGO mini-figures.

I’m just trying to figure out where I could mount this thing.

Phineas And Ferb Star Wars Trailer - http://bit.ly/1nyig1u

Here’s something I’ve been looking forward to since… well since I saw their Mission Marvel episode actually. Basically it’s an official Phineas and Ferb Star Wars mashup. And it airs on the Disney Channel July 26th.

We’ll get all the Phineas and Ferb regulars and a heaping of Star Wars guest stars. It seems for example that Luke Skywalker is actually their neighbor? Who knew…

Finn and Jake Visit Halloween Town In This Nightmare Before Christmas/Adventure Time Mashup - http://bit.ly/1nydtNx

This artwork by FunkBlast is almost a case of using absence to define presence. What we’re given here is merely the silhouette’s of Finn and Jake from Adventure Time along with the moon and cliffs that are instantly recognizable from A Nightmare Before Christmas.

There are no details here, and indeed not even that much in the way of color. A few shades of blue and some white is pretty much all it is, along with some nice crumpled paper texturing.

It’s extremely effective in its minimalism.

Hellboy Fan Art - Dragonslayer - http://bit.ly/1rEEVII

Here’s another great bit of artwork by Daniel Govar. This time round it’s Hellboy who gets the epic treatment. He’s depicted here slaying a rather majestic dragon.

Is it just me or does he not seem very happy about that?

Hellboy seems to be in “barbarian” mode here using a sword rather than guns and with his horns long, not cut short.

The blue blood used for the dragon does make a nice contrast to Hellboy’s red skin too.

Star Wars / Disney Mashup Cosplay - Meet Snowbafett - http://bit.ly/1zNV3vZ

Now I'm on record (repeatedly) on the subject of just how lame a  character Boba Fett actually is. Third worst in the entire Star Wars universe isn’t hyperbole. That’s actually where I think he ranks. Fett has one thing and one thing only going for him. He looks pretty cool (in a 70s sort of way).

So Amber Arden’s costume (as photographed here by Estrada Photography) takes the one good thing about Fett and makes it massively cooler by combining it with a Disney Princess. Snow White to be specific.

Not only does she give the Mandalorean armor the correct color scheme, she’s even put a bow on the helmet! Though since she’s got a bow in her hair too that does seem a tad excessive.

Snowbafett is probably a better bounty hunter than Boba too.

Beautiful Middle-Earth Art - From The Shire To The Sea - http://bit.ly/1zNQ66n

Not only is this a really beautiful painting by Joe Gilronan but there’s so much going on that you have to take your time and let your eyes sweep gently over it.

Obviously starting in the Shire at Bag End, the painting takes us on a tour of western Middle-Earth stopping by Rivendell, Gondor, The Argonath and the Grey Havens, all while the baleful Eye of Sauron glares down.

Gilronan is a professional artist apparently and has produced quite a lot of Tolkien inspired artwork. All of it definitely worth checking out so click through the link. You also want to make sure you take a look at the full size image, because there is a lot going on here.

First Trailer For SyFy's 12 Monkeys Series - http://bit.ly/1zNJZyX

The show won't air until 2015, but SyFy have released the first trailer for 12 Monkeys which is adapted from the Terry Gilliam movie of the same name.

In the trailer we seem to be covering very similar ground to the movie. I'm guessing this is all happening the first episode. I mean how far along with shooting could they really be at this point? Which does raise a question about where they will go for the rest of the season.

Visually it's got nothing on Gilliam's movie. But then, there really never was any hope of that. There are some promising actors in the mix though and the basic concept is one of the more interesting uses of time travel so I remain curious.

Star Wars Fan Art - Darth Talon Will Make You Tremble - http://bit.ly/1rrLBJV

Darth Talon for those who don’t track all the details of the assorted books and comics is a Lethan Twi’lek who became a Sith Lady as part of Darth Krayt’s One Sith (so says Wookiepedia). This all happens 100 or so years after the fall of the Emperor so you can safely assume it’s not canon any more and ignore it.

As shown here in this image by daRoz though she is pretty awe inspiring don’t you think? Not someone to mess with unless you have a death wish judging by the look she’s giving. Really moody bit of artwork and the skin looks like skin not a costume.

While Bujold is best known for her Vorkosigan saga science fiction series, she has also written three fantasy books in the Chalion series all of which are very much worth reading..

The Hallowed Hunt is the third of the Chalion series, but each book stands alone so you dont' have to worry about having read the previous one.

It's a very good book at full price but a steal at $3.99

I these 8 photos we can see Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, Bruce Banner, Iron Man and Black Widow of course, but also Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Rhodey.

Minion Captain Jack Sparrow Artwork -  http://bit.ly/1roZyIw

I love a good mashup and this is a good mashup. What do you get when you cross Despicable Me with the Pirates of the Caribbean? Well naturally you get a Captain Jack Sparrow.

This rather excellent drawing was done by AtomiccircuS using markers and color pencils. I think he’s done a great job of capturing the look of Captain Jack while still making this a suitably miniony minion.

Loudon Heights Overlook

Here's a different look at Harpers Ferry. This time round I hiked up Loudon Heights rather than Maryland Heights.

While the walk up Maryland Heights is pretty much straight up (well round and round up I suppose) Loudon Heights is a bit more spread out. First you go up, then you walk along the spine of the mountain for a way.

At the end of the trail you get this view which is definitely worthwhile.

Next time I go up there I need to try out my telephoto lens and get some closer shots of Harpers Ferry itself.

Panasonic Lumix 14mm f/2.5 Micro Four Thirds Interchangeable Lens - http://bit.ly/1roSDPR

I think I want this lens.

Even by the standards of Micro Four Thirds lenses this thing is tiny. Which makes the whole camera incredibly light and portable when this is the lens you have on. On top of that F/2.5 makes for a better depth of field and would give me a small low light boost compared to the kit lens.

Theres also a pretty nice 20mm pancake lens that Panasonic makes, but right now the 14mm is only $260 which is a pretty good price.

Even by the standards of Micro Four Thirds lenses this thing is tiny. Which makes the whole camera incredibly light and portable when this is the lens you have on. On top of that F/2.5 makes for a better depth of field and would give me a small low light boost compared to the kit lens.

Theres also a pretty nice 20mm pancake lens that Panasonic makes, but right now the 14mm is only $260 which is a pretty good price.___

"Big Hero 6" is a heartfelt comedy adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, clean freak Wasabi No-Ginger, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a cutting-edge robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, "Big Hero 6" is directed by Don Hall ("Winnie the Pooh") and Chris Williams ("Bolt"), and produced by Roy Conli ("Tangled"). The film hits theaters in 3D on November 7, 2014.___

How Did They Get Like That

From time to time on my walks I am confronted with an arrangement that makes me ask... How did they get like that?

Take these rather substantially sized boulders for example. Clearly they did not start off in this arrangement.

Yet here I am hiking along the spine of a mountain and there they sit. What particularly alignment of circumstances resulted in the creation of this pillar?

No I'm not looking for a detailed scientific treatise on this particular situation... this is a question of a more general nature

Will The New Doctor Who Title Sequence Look Something Like This?  - http://bit.ly/1rmaJ4Q

So here’s an interesting thing. I’ve mentioned before (and you’ve probably seen reported elsewhere) that several scripts for Doctor Who season 8 leaked onto the internet.

Well apparently in those scripts there is a reference to the title sequence being done by BBC Wales Graphics based on original idea by Billy Hanshaw.

So who is Billy Hanshaw and what is his idea? Well Hanshaw is apparently a media professional who is also a Doctor Who fan and just last year he posted this idea for a Doctor Who credits sequence on YouTube.

Of course it’s not clear to what extent this idea is being used or which elements are being incorporated. Still it is significantly different from what we’ve seen before. What do you think? Personally I like a lot of the elements but itfeels a lit... more »

LEGO Game Of Thrones - House Stark Sigil - http://bit.ly/1rm6FSg

It’s becoming almost passe to do artistic variations on the sigils of the various houses from Game of Thrones.

But this one is worth bringing to your attention for a few reasons. First of all it’s LEGO and that makes everything cooler. But also it’s extremely well executed as a poster.

The image takes advantage of the three dimensional nature of the Dire Wolf sigil to cast shadows and texture across itself and then emphasizes that further by placing it on a stark black background. Finish that off with carefully crafted text using the “Winter Is Coming” slogan and you have a very striking poster. Its harsh simplicity very much embodies the house which it seeks to represent.

Omar Ovalle has an eye for both LEGO and design in general I think.

Gender Switched Supernatural Cosplay - Death - http://bit.ly/1rm4mP2

The TV Show Supernatural actually had one of the best humanoid incarnations of Death that I’ve seen in any visual media. A large part of that came down to the choice of Julian Richings to play the character. A combination of his gaunt features and the dry weary tones with which he delivered the lines made for a distinctive but entirely believable death.

Some of these elements are not things that can be easily captured in cosplay. Particularly when you pull a gender switch on the character.

ShahanaMikagi has done a great job here with the visuals of the character as presented in Supernatural. From the obvious ones like the cane and the clothing to the expression on her face in this photo. Having the shadow “wings” int he background is just the icing on the cake.
