Cowboys & Aliens: A New Sci-Fi Movie, Not a Right-Wing Anti-Immigration Strategy

by Matt Forcey

Cowboys & Aliens boldly goes where no cowpoke has gone before.  Is it a new spin on the Western film genre, or a new spin on Sci-Fi? 

Speaking of a spin… wouldn’t you have just LOVED to see this pitch meeting, if only to watch the skill it must have taken to spin this gold out of a tumbleweed?  Imagine the talent of the marketer, so captivating with their presentation, as to attract high-priced talent like Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde and Sam Rockwell, along with the direction and production chops of Favreau, Spielberg and the Ron Howard/Brian Grazer Power Duo.

Sharks are Friends, Not Food

by Matt Forcey

With many shark species on the brink of extinction, a new community of conservation-minded divers and videographers are working to change our perceptions of an animal long demonized in popular culture.  Like many of my generation, I was scared shitless at an early age by the movie Jaws.  I remain to this day inherently fearful of deep, open water.  I can, at anytime, cause myself anxiety with a simple thought…

Bagel vs. baguette, subway vs. metro, un petit cafe vs. grande frappuccino.  Graphic designer Vahram Muratyan, having recently moved from Paris to NYC, shares with us his realizations of the quaint little idiosyncratic iconography that most of us overlook, these cosmopolitan ambassadors of salt, pepper and tarragon.

Play Digital Spy with Covert USB Drives Hidden Around the City

by Matt Forcey

My Brain is Ignoring My Nose! Kooky Song of Mind Blowing Facts

by Matt Forcey

It’s Friday afternoon and about the right time for a bit of buffoonery.  I’ve called on farcical songster and today’s court jester, Jonathan Mann, to fire up his patented Songatron and spin us out an amusing little ditty.  Please note that it’s always my goal to make sure you learn something new when you visit, regardless of how idiosyncratic. 

What Jonathan has created for our enjoyment accomplishes both of our goals by giving you a few nuggets of titillating info and a smile on your face, both of which I encourage you share with friends this weekend.  Want more from the Songatron?  You can sign up here to receive Jonathan’s Song-a-Day via email.

Jonathan: “I stumbled on to a really wonderful thread on Reddit.com about the most mind-blowing facts people could think of. I collected a bunch of them and made this song!”
