So Bad Piggies has been a vacuum of time wasting and a staple to how I spend my time in class.  Between Bad Piggies and stressing to get articles done in time, I think I might enjoy some mindless time wasting via Rovio’s latest mobile app.  Bad Piggies is a spin-off of the Angry Birds franchise that circles around the bad guys of the original game.  This time, they’re in your hands to acquire the thing they desire most: eggs.  On your way to get the eggs, a number of hijinx ensue where you must help the pigs acquire pieces to maps that lead to the eggs.  Unfortunately pieces are in unattainable areas and require you to help the pigs build miraculous contraptions to ge from point A to point B.  The process is fun, challenging, and the time spent:payment ratio far exceeds the $0.99 game for iPhone.

An Appreciated Directional Change by Rovio

After a string of similar spin-offs: Angry Birds: Seasons, Angry Birds: Rio, Angry Birds Space, bringing the franchise in a new direction [and even keeping the old direction with the confirmed Angry Birds: Star Wars], using the Piggies as new protagonists in a completely different setting is really cool to see.  Everyone thought this spin-off would be just another Angry Birds rip-off, but it’s pretty clear that this new game is built from the ground up with similar addictive elements like 3-star grinding and secret hunting.

Super awesome artist Kristele has a very distinct art style.  We’ve featured her banner including all these Firefly characters before, but now I wanna give her credit to these awesome individual pieces.These awesome character profiles of each character could totally serve as a template for a Firefly animated series.  I would watch that.  I would watch anything Firefly related.  All this recent Firefly posting makes me mis the show again…Sigh…time to go watch Firefly and Serenity for like the 50th time….

See the rest of the character profiles and then visit her deviantart profile I linked above.

A small and short video for ya’ll demonstrating how awesome Nathan Fillion.  Claimed geek god by many for his portrayal of the unforgettable Malcolm Reynolds in one season of Firefly and the awesome movie Serenity, Nathan Fillion is known for generating plenty of antics as seen in the video above.  During a dramatic scene, Fillion decides to carry dramatic in one camera pan across the entire crew. Appearing several times with a dead pan expression.  Some actors can’t handle it, but the ending is especially nice.  If you’re a fan of Firefly or Serenity, do yourself a favor and watch the clip.  If you’re not, do yourself a favor and watch both the series and movie and become a part of a Cult group that will be forever angry at the early death of a beloved show.

Donnie Darko was a complex movie.  So complex and intimidating, that I’ve only watched it once because I didn’t want to put myself through the mind stress.  But below, Metaphilm has compiled a theory and explanation to the cult classic.  It’s fairly similar to the Breaking Down of Memento’s time structure.  Donnie Darko is significantly more difficult and complex, so the idea of physics and tangentals are sprinkled here and there.  But if you want to try hard, I recommend you check out the link below.
