A commercial known as two girls - one sub. Maybe NSFW for some. Watch it before lunchtime.

I hope you have seen Star Trek. Yes, every single one of you. Please note this isn't coming from my inner hardcore childhood Trekkie-self that once proudly put on a Starfleet uniform and went door to door looking for candy (and it wasn't Hallowe'en), but this is the adult, significantly re-educated quasi-geek whom hasn't looked through his technical manual or muttered a word of Klingon in over ten years.

This movie is a rollercoaster ride. But it's not the kind of attraction that you're afraid to get on, hang on for deal life and then hurl your cookies the moment you get off (see J.J. Abrams previous film, Cloverfield, for that experience). It's excitement, action and drama amortized by nuggets of passion, emotion, story and decent acting. Dare I say excellent acting relative to other Trek experiences.

Which brings me to the only reason I don't give this movie 10 out of 10 - its militantly stomps over everything my childhood held dear. Over 40 years of Star Trek canon, reset. It was really hard to envision these new young actors play the characters I relished through 79 episodes, 6 movies and several cameos. Most of them did a bang up job, but Karl Urban, who played Dr. McCoy, seemed to have channeled Deforest Kelley from the grave. That's the great thing about science fiction though - you throw in the term "time travel" and "alternate universe" and you can get away with anything.

This flick appeals to nerds, girls, jocks, rednecks and everyone in between. Move over Patrick Stewart & friends, cause your Star Trek is now only "the next generation" in title alone.

9.75 out of 10 Orion Slave Girls.

So a few months ago frogjimmy recommended I check out a little prime-time sitcom called The Big Bang Theory, which may air on your local cable television network somewhere sometime but airs off my hard drive courtesy of Mininova.org whenever the hell I want.

The basic synopsis is about two post-docs who live across the hall from a hot blonde. One dude, named Sheldon, is your atypical (yet fairly typical, trust me, I've been to Cornell) theoretical physicist with a large case of Aspergers and ego the size of a planet. The other fellow, Leonard, it's just socially awkward, yet lovable (according to a few female friends of mine) geek who has a crush on the girl next door. Penny is the typical blonde who loves to party and gets jerked around by douchebags, day in and day out. Joined by Leonard and Sheldon's two buddies, an Indian who can't talk to chicks plus a uber-nerdy-Quagmire-like character who's Jewish, you've got yoursellf a sitcom.

It's a brilliant sitcom. Fantastic even. Not only is the writing good and the girl hot, but the amount of nerd references and accurate naunces of nerd lifestyle is astounding. Take it from me, I'm an expert on the subject.

From World of Warcraft to Wii, comic books to theorical physics and everything in between - everything is right on the money. Anyone who considered him or herself even slightly nerdy will appreciate this show. Ladies, if you love your man with a pocket protector - you'll love this show too.

Here's a quick clip:

Embedding videos are mostly fun and entertaining. But sometimes they are serious.

Sri Lanka had a suicide bombing a couple of days ago. The explosion was caught on camera. There are some gruesome still-shot pictures out on the net.

For those who can stomach a real life suicide bomb, watch this video. Slow motion footage begins at 1:35, and then they break it down for you.

It's important to realize and be aware that this type of violence exists around the world.
