It Seems That I Am A Third Generation Trekkie

In Celebrities, Film on May 8, 2009 at 7:36 pm

Star Trek basically wins. I just watched it. I can confirm this.

Now, if you’ll give me a moment, I need to gush about how incredibly hot Chris Pine was. If you see a lot of girls going to see Star Trek… he may be a factor. It was simply amazing- the guy playing his dad was hot too. But seriously; he’s made me like Star Trek (I’ll see how long I can hold off before I start drowning myself under Star Trek episodes) and if the Green Lantern thing goes through and he plays Hal Jordan? Well, he’ll pretty much own me forever.

Okay, done gushing. I would highly recommend going to see it- whether you’re a fan or not (I wasn’t). While I’ll agree with my Anti-Trekkie BFF and say that the film wasn’t completely amazing, it was worth the money and the time and the hotness. And I’m hoping the DVD will have some more scenes and stuff that I felt were missing from the movie.


Everything’s Better When It Glows In The Dark!

Brain cancer likes albumin- a blood protein- so scientists find a way to make the albumin fluorescent: helping brain surgeons pin-point exactly where the cancer is. I think this is the medical version of a Trojan Horse or something.

Someone Needs To Write The Pirate Bay A Cheer Song Effective Immediately

It is now possible for Facebook users to upload torrents to their profile and share them with friends.

Because of this court case, The Pirate Bay will probably own the Internet in three weeks (the time at which the verdict of the case will be revealed).

Where There’s A Will, There’s A Way

To counter new copyright laws, The Pirate Bay will offer users a new IPREDator service which will grant users anonymity. The service will be available from 1st April, the same day as the new laws become active, and will only be available to 500 users at first, for a price of 5€ ($6.77).

Go, Pirate Bay.

The Internet Strikes Back! or My Kind Of Justice

In Internet, People on March 28, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Jim Keyzer, the guy trying to shut down The Pirate Bay, got hacked. Sort of. His girlfriend’s e-mail did, leading to the release of some passwords and info on a house he bought recently. Via torrent. Poetic justice, is the phrase to be used here.

I just really like this story. It made me giggle and I feel like this is the Internet version of gathering somewhere and shouting like football hooligans. I’d like to say “Serves him right,” but it’s just… No. Fuck it.

Serves him right.
