How Wolves Change Rivers

Living in London, this is not something that I have witnessed first hand. Foxes on the other hand…

Regardless, this short documentary is very interesting and it’s amazing to see how small changes can have massive repercussions.

Man of Steel from a Baby’s Perspective

This is so adorable. That is all.

Offerman Woodshop

Ann: How many drinks of alcohol do you consume a week?  Ron: One.  Ann: That’s it? One drink?  Ron: One shelf.  Ann: Do you exercise?  Ron: Yes. Lovemaking and woodworking.  Ann: Do you have any history of mental illness in your family?  Ron: I have an uncle who does yoga.

I’m a fan of the US TV show Parks and Recreation and am particularly fond of the character Ron Swanson. Ron is a man’s man; he likes the great outdoors, survival and making stuff with his bare hands. He dislikes bureaucracy, vegetarians and health & safety. He really is a fantastic character and so I am overjoyed to find out that Nick Offerman, the actor who plays him, is pretty similar to his character in real-life.

Click here and check out Nick Offerman’s Woodshop where you’ll find all manner of handmade wood items, designed and made by Nick and his colleagues.

I also found out that Nick is married to Megan Mullally, Karen from Will & Grace, which makes me like him even more! I bet there’s no *ahem* wooden comedy in their household. Sorry!

DC Universe Online – Cinematic Trailer

Great trailer for DC Universe Online. This game has already been released but I haven’t played it. I’m not a gamer really, but I do enjoy a good comic book movie. This little trailer made me go ‘Wheeee!’ – so many cool superhero moments. It’s just a shame that a DC movie will more than likely be a bit of a dud. Marvel get it right almost consistently, but DC seem to struggle (with the exception of a certain trilogy by Christopher Nolan). I hope Man of Steel in 2013 shakes this off, as I am giddy for a new take on Superman.

Avenger’s Damage to Manhattan

 

Without giving too much away to those who’ve not yet seen the brilliant Avenger’s movie, there is quite a bit of damage done to Manhattan in the final action sequences. Disaster experts estimate the cost of the damage to be in the region of $160 billion. Nice job Avengers! Must try harder, tut tut!

American Horror Story

I’ve just started watching this new show by the co-creators of Glee. It couldn’t be more different from the sugar-coated cheesiness of Glee though and (the Pilot especially) scares the bejeezus out of me. The premise is simple; family move into a LA mansion which cost next to nothing as its previous owners ended up dead (as dead the ones before them, and the ones before them). The couple and their daughter soon find out the house is a star attraction on a LA ‘Murder Tour’ for tourists. There are some seriously twisted and messed up elements to the show – the biggest for me being Rubber Man, who lurks about in the house silently. Starring Connie Briton and Dylan McDermott as the couple and Vera Farmiga’s younger sister Taissa Farmiga as their daughter, they soon find out more about the house’s history as a mad doctor once used it for helping out young lady’s who found themselves pregnant. Some of the themes are very dark indeed and the show is not for the feint-hearted with plenty of gory moments. There is a fantastic supporting cast, with Frances Conroy as the dutiful (in more ways than one) maid and Jessica Lange as the mysterious, nefarious and altogether blunt  next door neighbour.

While it is essentially a haunted house plot that may or may not have been told many times before, the mystery behind the plot and the ingeniously creepy elements bring everything together nicely and leaves me wanting to find out what will happen next. Highly recommend!!
