More Links to Share…

I just want to share some groovy web links I’ve come across on my obsessive scouring of the internets this past week. Mostly entertainment news, and a couple about computer and tech stuff.

FIRST, TO THE ENTERTAINMENT!

I guess the titles are pretty self-exclamatory.

This one is incredibly adorable: Star Wars According to a 3 Year Old.

And this movie trailer made me squeal like a little girly-man: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3D – Official Trailer. I loved the first two Sam Raimi Spider-Man films; but this looks like a really cool, fresh take on the delightfully sarcastic Spider-Man we all know and loved from the old Marvel comics.

Speaking of Marvel Comics; how could I leave out the trailer for the upcoming ‘Avengers’ film that hits theaters on my birthday! ‘The Avengers’ Trailer (Official). Damn, that Loki has become an even better bad-guy than in ‘Thor’, and he reminds me so much of Brent Spiner,(Commander Data) from ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ it’s just creepy!!

Then there’s this other little film about teenagers developing super telekinetic powers. I think it just came out last weekend. Sounds kind of neat! Chronicle is a superhero origin story done right.

Next we have a wild glimpse of the techno-glassy future from the Corning Glass Company. Will Smith should have been in this vid: A Day Made of Glass 2: Same Day. Expanded Corning Vision.

And have you heard of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) Project? This is very cool, and they cost about a hundred bucks, US. One Laptop Per Child Changes Developing Nations with New Linux XO-3 Tablet . Also; here’s a kid giving a talk on TED about the horrors of our food supply in the good ‘ole USA (I’m talking to you, Monsanto! Among others…) The hand gestures got to me after a while; but the young man has some excellent points! Birke Baehr -“What’s Wrong With Our Food System? And How Can We Make A Difference?”.

And I shall leave you, gentle readers, with some thoughts about GNU/Linux and my new love affair with KDE: KDE vs. Windows 7.

…and… Tony Stark gets snarky in new Avengers trailer

Oh, and one more link I must add. I heard about this wacky movie a long while back; but it looks like it’s actually coming to theaters in the next few months! This is just crazy fun!!! Iron Sky Official Theatrical Trailer

Peace.
