Bullet Sunday 409

Posted on Sunday, November 30th, 2014

Dave!Don't go all Cyber Monday just yet... because Bullet Sunday starts... now...

   
• Bats! The Tolga Bat Hospital posted some amazing photos of young bats experiencing the rain for the first time this week...

Adorable. Oh how I love bats! Much love to Tolga Bat Hospital for posting such fantastic shots. They do good work.

   
• War! Unless you've been spending the past few days dead for tax reasons, you're undoubtedly aware that the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released. If you weren't aware, you can watch the thing here.

And then the fan trailers came. First up is this brilliant (literally!) nod to director JJ Abrams' love of lens flare (in his Star Trek movies)...

Nice! Next up... the very funny George Lucas' Special Edition...

What? No fart jokes? And, lastly, heeeeeeere's LEGO...

Genius. I have to say... this trailer had a good Star Wars feel to it. Which is something I can't say about the horrendously shitty prequel trilogy. Just over a year to wait... sigh.

   
• Space! I really don't have the words for just how amazing this it...

Wow. Star Wars Shmar Wors. More information on this jaw-dropping short film can be found at creator Erik Wernquist's site.

   
• Sugar! If this Brita commercial is accurate, it's kind of scary. I probably drink double this amount of soda in a year...

Why oh why are all the things that are bad for us so darn tasty?

   
• Lap! Came across a photo while backing up my image library and was pretty shocked at how big laptops used to be...

Big Laptop!

Even harder to believe that boat anchor has only a fraction of the computational power that an iPhone has. Probably a fraction of the screen resolution as well. Might have an iPhone beat on battery life though.

   
• Arthur! A story about a stray dog who became part of a team attempting to complete a 430-mile race through the Amazon is probably my favorite story on the interwebs this week...

Arthur the Dog!

So great. I get a lump in my throat every time I read it. If you want to see Arthur arriving at his new home in Sweden, here's the link.

   
And... I should probably go to bed seeing as how I have to get up early for work tomorrow.

  1. My wife told me there was some sort of outrage about a black Stormtrooper, allegedly because he wasn’t a Jango clone. Nevermind the fact it could be someone disguising himself as a stromtrooper, because that has never been done, or that the ranks have opened up to non-clones. IIRC Han Solo was briefly a Stormtrooper, but either washed out of training or just abandoned his post.

    Trying to hid racism behind the veil of nerd-lore is lame, especially when you cannot even get the history right.

    My favorite was the Lucased version. Because this is exactly how I think he ruined all the Star Wars movies.

  3. Dadcation says:

    loved the dog story! i didn’t know about it til just now.

  4. martymankins says:

    Loved the Lucas Special Edition teaser trailer.

    Those bats up close are pretty cool.

  5. Loved the new trailer. Keep thinking to myself “please don’t screw this up, please don’t screw this up”
