Today's Mighty Oak

Alright, let’s see what we have today.  First up, the new trailer for Kick Ass 2 (NSFW):

A Firefly MMO has been announced, although it appears to be exclusively for mobile phones.  Will be interesting to see what it’s like, but it may be too late. 

A great ad campaign which uses national flags.  Very well done.

A mash-up I didn’t expect to see:

John Williams has come on board to score Star Wars: Episode VII.

What if the Internet was laid out like a galaxy?  Check it out here.

It has some strong language (deservedly so), but the best response yet to Orson Scott Card comes from Harvey Fierstein.

Can Richard Simmons stay still for 60 seconds?

The new trailer for the next Hunger Games movies is here.

I was never into the boy bands the first time around, but I kind of like this song, maybe it’s a weird reverse nostalgia thing:

Amazing “get well soon” wishes….to roadkill.

The best (or worse) drinking game ever?

Okay, one more video, this amazing thing happened:

That’s it for now, have a great one!

Quick update for everyone today.

First up, new punctuation that we need to add.

Sadly, this is not The Onion.

And how Joss Whedon broke our hears, in less than one season.

That’s it for now, but I’ll be back soon with more!

I think this is an amazing video, because I have such a strange sense of humor:

Announced last week, the Science Channel is going to do a 10th-anniversary Firefly special.  So excited!

AHAHAHAHA: Some evangelicals are trying to boycott Google due to their support for marriage equality.  Good luck with that:

And speaking of marriage equality, at our triannual general convention, the Episcopal Church approved a blessing of same-sex couples.  There’s a lot of caveats to that, I’ll be putting up a post at Metblogs about it, so look for that.

When will news anchors learn that Bill Nye is smarter than you.  She asked him with such snark, it was nice to see him smack her down:

And lastly, the Good Men Project has an awesome poster about words we probably use in our everyday conversation and why they hurt people.  Check it out here.

That’s it for now, have a great one!

Quick update for everyone, which will be a whole lot of pictures, actually.  Another update with video will be coming later, probably tomorrow.

First off, WWNPHD?  Get your t-shirt here:

There is a Star Wars convention coming up in Orlando.  Even though I’m a huge nerd, I didn’t know about this.  But most importantly, they are giving away custom cereal!  I really want the Admiral Ackbar cereal, but I’m afraid it’s a trap.  Check out Greedo’s and Raisin Han, too!

Quantum Mechanix has some new merchandise, including this awesome figure of Wash from Serenity (I actually just washed that episode yesterday):

Not a picture, but it was an awesome video.  More reasons why I love Rep. Grayson!

An Anglican church in New Zealand has some awesome billboards, including this one which I absolutely love:

Here is the other one I’ve found from them:

Did you follow along with the Old Spice one day social media blitz?  It was pretty awesome, but I loved reading about how they pulled it off.  Sounds tiring, but worth it!

And finally, copyranter takes a look at an ad from  Beirut.  And their nightlife.  Which is apparantly reminiscent of bombs.  Sigh.

That’s it for now, but I’ll be back soon after I get some more work done, catch everyone in a bit!
