While We Were Eating Ham.

@soulwax @oizo3000 @PARAONER #christiandubstep #tintin

Ok so we've been away for a bit eating Ham (lots of ham). What Happened?

This is the actor Hamm, not the food Ham. Easy mistake to make. 

This Happened.

The web is what you make of it.

#Tanjore #thewebiswhatyoumakeofit #google #chrome

There is a long and largely boring story behind this. Suffice to say, this art form was dying out, the internet and a savvy business man saved it. Plus this is just an interesting idea.

100 Greatest movie insults of all time.

#100greatestmovieinsults #insults

Someone has been kind enough to edit together their idea of what the 100 greatest movie insults are. I don't necessarily agree with all of them and also think they probably missed a few that i would have deemed worthy, However, it is still amusing and a good way to spend 10 minutes.

And a sequel.

The Prometheus Trailer is finally here


The most anticipated film for 2012. For me anyways.

We're going back to the universe that was created in 1979 and we'll see the origins of life itself. Big Ideas. Original Sci Fi!

A few points of interest

- The film seems very physical, models, props and sets (a certain lack of CG, YAH!)
- The derelict ship from Alien. It's there, we're looking right at it!
- The Space Jockey's chair rising up at 44 seconds. GOOSEBUMPS!

Really seems like a lot of the things I talked about here in July are actually true.

There is nothing to say about this other than you should watch it. Now!
Be prepared to piss your pants.

Ant Crusher Pt 2.

#antcrusher #mostrealisticgame

So this seriously has to be the most realistic game of 2011 and probably deserved a spot on our list of top 11 games. But i guess its only enjoyable if you have a pet that wants to play with you.

@trenchedgame @epicgames @bethblog 

2011 saw the release of some of the greatest games I have ever played, unfortunately and ultimately disappointingly it also saw the release of the worst (MW3 thus will not be making it onto this list aside from this small mention.) I have tried to distill this list of 11 games across all platforms from iOS to xbox. 

Here are some games that i rated highly.

Love it or hate it.... You absolutely have to love the fact that Peter Jackson and his team, are able to seamlessly pick up from where they left off, which will be a 9 year gap since the release of Return of the King. Enjoy. Now only 12 more months to go.......

The 11 most CastleWorthy LPs of 11

@oizo3000 @edbangerrecords @thundercatbass @housi3000

What a year in music! We we're truly spoilt by some dazling releases in 2011. LP's with slick productions, beatastic noises, poetic lyrics and computer voices.

Here are some LP's that I like.

    Prometheus Teasers for the Trailer


    This Thursday we'll get a first glimpse of Prometheus behind the scenes and the world premier of the trailer. FINALLLLLLLLY!

    Have a look at the teasers below with perhaps some of the best sic fi imagery I've ever seen. Getting tingles for this film.

    The Dark Knight Rises Trailer

    Bane beats the shit out of Christian Bale.

    The new Nolan Batman film entitled like a lacklustre Star Wars film has finally released it's trailer. It looks pretty damn sweet and I'm sure everyone is excited DKR after the behemoth that was Dark Knight. It's out July next year.

    Two Things that I like here.

    - Bane, that voice, that look! (a vast improvement on Schumacher's attempt)
    - That running shot in the Football Stadium

    Let us know your thought Castle Peeps.

    An update on NBC's AWAKE

    #NBC #Awake

    About 6 months ago, Castle Awesome posted an article about a new TV show titled "Awake", which was due to premiere on NBC's fall lineup (September).

    If you weren't aware.... it hasn't.

    So I write this, to you, about some bad news....

    Unfortunately, due to certain circumstances, production was shut down a few months ago. Although this does not mean the end for the show, it does mean that show has been delayed a further 6 months from it's original air date. Keep an eye out for it in March 2012.

    Of course, there is some good news that comes with this. News that makes me want to wait. News that makes me think, "good things, take time".

    The reason the production was shut down, was due to it's complexity and ambition. Complexity and ambition of what? You might say.

    Production has come to a halt because filming of the episodes had caught up to the script writing process. Obviously, this is no normal tv show, and it will heavily rely on the tangled story that can be seen in the trailer.

    It's no easy feat for a network TV show to compete with the big three cable networks (HBO, Showtime and AMC). I hope that it doesn't stink. Watch the trailer if you haven't seen it already.

    Shit Post Sunday - Tiga's Reckless

    @ciaotiga @turborecordings

    Tiga finally got round to remixing his Turbo signed rad group Azari & III and it's magnificent. No details on a release on this yet but bathe in it's glory below in the meantime.

    Shit Post Sunday - Germans.

    #laughingGermans #Ubahn

    Is anyone else completely creeped out by this. Germans are already creepy enough, now they are laughing maniacally on a train. There is something going on beneath the surface here that just screams "We are German and we know something you don't."

    Shit Post Sunday - Bearded Dragon.

    #BeardedDragon #antcrusher #realisticgames

    Move aside Battlefield, this game surely must win most realistic game of the year. Plus i love anything with the word beard in it and the fact that its also a Dragon makes me supremely happy.

    Shit Post Sunday - Share A Coke With....

    @Coke #ShareACokeWith #CastleAwesome

    Whilst this has been around for a while now, people have started to get creative.
    There are a number of shady institutions that will print whatever you like onto a coke bottle or can - and they look every bit like the real thing.
    There have been numerous reports of some cheeky pranksters planting some of their forged coke bottles in supermarket shelves on some kind of anti coke crusade.

    personally, i find the pointlessly rude ones the best.

    WRONG EXTRACT - Master Chang?

    @Oizo3000 #Wrong #WrongTheMovie

    Finally we see more of The Beard's new film than was revealed in the undecipherable montage of madness that was the trailer.

    I'm getting a bit excited now.

    of course.... now that I've watch the extract, i feel raped and robbed as I am none the wiser.
    Damn you Quentin, damn you!

    Stop Motion Raiders of the Lost Ark

    To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark some mega fan recreated the opening sequence in stop motion. Well done. Well done indeed.

    This film deserves all the love it gets as it pretty much created the modern adventure film and everyone's been running to catch up ever since.

    Star Wars for everyone

    @starwars #mikaexplains #anewhope

    If you had trouble understanding exactly what was going on in Star Wars IV: A New Hope, never fear, a young Japanese girl named Mika has made a video explaining the nitty gritty details of the film to us in very simple details. Great because I was bamboozled.

    Remember, it's important to be Jedi. Check out Mika's other explanations of things/films on this channel.

    A Dinklage Retrospective

    @PeterDinklage #Actor #Retrospective

    In light of the teaser for the Game Of Thrones second season making us all moist in the pants,
    - it's time to honour one of true stars of the show in a way that is worthy of their talents.

    Not with a silly gold statue, gala events, talk shows, screaming fans or fame & fortune,
    - but with an obscure retrospective article on a shitty blog that nobody reads.
    You're welcome Peter Dinklage.

    It has been claimed on numerous accessions that Peter Dinklage is such a good actor, that he is able to disguise the fact that is is 6'3" and makes playing the role of a dwarf look easy.

    Justice fans are menopausal feminists

    @EdBanger #Justice #Boobs

    Here is the cover for the new Justice single On'n'On.

    In case you didn't notice, there is a naked lady on it and you can see some sweet side-boob.

    But, not everybody likes side-boob, and a few Ed Banger fans have complained about the boob, which triggered this response from Ed Banger boss, BusyP, via Facebook.

    Personally, I like boobs & I like Justice.
    So, I'm okay with it.

    MIT slow motion photon camera.

    MIT has built a camera that shoots at 1 trillion frames per second.
    Remember the first time you saw bullet time, you shit your pants.
    This is like that, but instead of watching bullets move slowly through the air, MIT is able to capture video at the speed of light.

    The first Hea-ED Banger!

    @edbangerrecords @bowlerbar @the_OAF @thebakeryperth @WarehouseSydney

    On March 21 2003 the first EP/anything was released on the new born label Ed Banger records by the french Mr. Flash. The EP was called Radar Rider and came about after Pedro Winter (Ed Banger head honcho) was so impressed by the unique disco/hip hop beats he'd heard from the bearded individual. 

    Mr. Flash had only released a single EP before the release of Radar Rider and only five since. He does however make Hip Hop beats for other artists, including the talented Mos Def. 

    His sound really defined that now familiar sound that Ed Banger was known for back in the day and his music continues to sound so very fresh today. 

    So finally he's coming to Australia for the very first time and you should be wetting your pants with joy. Make sure you get out to see him and prepare for a heavy set that journeys to a hip hoptastic ending. 

    Check out one of his more intense/dark tracks below. Brilliant music video (NSFW) even better track.
