by Casey Lynn Contributing Writer, [GAS] With the mess with the Viacom lawsuit and allegations of encouraging piracy looming, YouTube has seemingly been working to shrug off this reputation and legitimize itself as a forum for legal, freely available user-generated content as well as legally licensed media content. The latest step towards this is the […]
By Mark O’Neill Contributing Writer, [GAS] When US movie producer Michael Moore announced that his new movie “Slacker Uprising” would be available for free download over the internet, he was forced by US copyright law to add a caveat – that it would only be available to residents of the United States and Canada. Anyone […]
By Mark O’Neill Contributing Writer, [GAS] Did South Park go too far this time? That’s the question being posed by the Los Angeles Times after South Park came back this week from a several month hiatus. To me, the question is ridiculous. South Park ALWAYS goes too far – that’s what makes the programme so […]
Quantum Of Solace, the 22nd James Bond movie and the second to feature Daniel Craig, following his highly-acclaimed turn as 007 in 2006’s Casino Royale, opens in the UK on October 31, 2008, and the USA a week later.

Haven’t we heard this all before? Most recently, Wired pointed out how RealDVD is like a bong shop. After all, RealDVD clearly has a notice […]
by Casey Lynn Contributing Writer, [GAS] Last night, CBS’s geektastic sitcom The Big Bang Theory featured the MMORPG Age of Conan. Without giving too much away, I’ll just say that it explored the perils of game addiction in a humorous way. Like the rest of the show, it’s not framed in a way to mock […]
By Mark O’Neill Contributing Writer, [GAS] The new Star Trek movie isn’t due for release until next year but there’s already nervousness and concern from fans that script writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are going to write a bad script and send the Star Trek universe in entirely the wrong direction. Never mind the […]
Used to advertise movie posters included in the Sunday edition of the Brazilian Folha de S. Paulo newspaper, the following 4 illustrations of long-dead movie celebrities were made using only simple fonts. The result is, shall we say, rather surprising. I’ve included the first picture below, and if you want to see the other ones, […]
