Kung Fu Baby Kicks Stuffing out of CG Dragon Toy

Patrick Bovin is one talented mother lover – and the Drunken Mums is a great band name. But credit where credit’s due – where did this baby learn these kung fun moves?!

Star Wars ‘Call Me Maybe’

The Star Wars cast sings Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. Obi wan (Old and Young) and a host of Skywalkers join Yoda and the Jedi for a quick rendition of an otherwise potentially forgettable pop tune. It even has a Mutilingual bit, who knew what Greedo was saying in the Cantina but it was certainly irritating enough for Han Solo to shoot first (answering a long standing question has to who started it).

It’s good that the dialogue from the love scenes in parts II and III have found a half decent. In the mean time, have to doff your cap to James Covenant fgor finding a new way to see the Star Wars movies – even in this slightly tacky way…

Dropping Science – 10 Lesser Known Natural Wonders

 

I don’t have a tonne of time this weekend, so here’s a video I stumbled upon a little while ago and have been waiting for a chance to share. Without wanting to sound too much like Professor Brian Cox, there are plenty of amazing things in our world. Many of them are extremely famous but there are many more that you may never have heard of. Here’s a quick run down of 10 incredible natural wonders that you may not have seen before, courtesy of All Time Top 10.

Moon’s Song of the Week – Octopus by Bloc Party

The first slivers of content from Bloc Party’s forthcoming sort-of-comeback (I’m not sure how long you have to be away to be able to “come back”) album “Four” began to hit the internet this week in the form of a new song and video. The track is already causing debate amoungst fans but that’s kind of par for the course with a new Bloc Party track.

I’m a little on the fence about it right now but that’s how I generally start off with the band and I always end up loving the music so I’m willing to let this one settle for a bit. It has to be said that Bloc Party off form are still better than many bands at their best.

What if Star Wars was a Spanish Soap Opera?

 

I know Steve tends to handle the Star Wars stuff (he may well have something already planned for this week, in which case enjoy your double helping) but I’ve been laughing at this pretty much consistently for about three days and I can no longer hold off the desire to share it.

Empire Strikes Back, transformed into a Spanish soap opera.

May the passion be with you.

Dropping Science: Compilation of Real Space Footage

 

This week’s video falls into the inspirational category. I’ve posted quite a few vids that combine music with incredible CGI images of the solar system and those kind of films still stir something in me. That said there is, as they say, no substitute for the real thing and that’s exactly what Sander van den Berg  has done here.

By taking images from the Casini space mission and painstakingly editing them together he has created a haunting vision of our own solar system. To look at these images and know that you are looking through the lens of something that was actually there, that this is exactly what our planets look like and not what they imagine them to be, is simply breathtaking.

Moon’s Song of the Week: I Still Believe by Frank Turner

 

I’m off to see Frank Turner play at Wembley tonight so it’s only right to throw one of his songs up on the blog today. Frank’s a criminally under publicised folk singer who has produced some of the finest songs of the last ten years. If you’ve not heard his music already then you owe it to yourself to go check out some of his albums. I’d recommend starting with Love, Ire and Song and going from there.

Tonight Frank takes to the stage with some help from Beans on Toast, Dan le Sac & Scroobius Pip and the legendary Billy Bragg. To say it’s gonna be a special one is something of an understatement.

Tickets are sold out but there’s bound to be a few people trying to flog spares on the door. If you’re going, I shall see you there.

Jason Statham The Movie!

 

I’m still recovering from our outing to the 2 Days Laughter film festival, last night. If you follow me on twitter then you’ll already know that we did pretty well but I’m gonna hold off on doing a full write up until the official photos and press release are sent out.

In the meantime, here is a little silly something from The Key of Awesome. Jason Statham has done some pretty crazy action films, but what happens when you combine the plots of all of those movies into one specular Stathamathon? This.

Moon’s Song of the Week – The Fruity Track by Lemon Jelly

 

Moon’s had me dredging the vaults today in search of a track that would help keep that summer spirit alive as the temperatures dip over the weekend. This is one of two fantastic B-Sides (I may post the other one someday if I can find a good quality upload of it) to feature on Lemon Jelly’s 2004 single, Stay With You. It’s based around a sample of a well known song, but you probably won’t guess which song until close to the end, an element that adds a tonne of fun to an already great summer track.

While we didn’t know it at the time, this would end up being one of the last songs the band ever released as, shortly after it came out, the London duo announced that they were going on indefinite hiatus. A sign on the band’s website simply reads “Not Dead, But Sleeping.”

May they awaken soon.

Avengers Vs Friends

 

Lazy Sundays mean silly videos and this is about the silliest thing I’ve seen this week. A group of fans got together and made this alternate intro for Avengers Assemble which re-imagines the movie as certain popular sitcom. The shots of Thor alone make this a must watch.

Have a great weekend guys,
