So I’ve been doing some deep digging through the inter-cobwebs to find some new good/bad sci-fi movies and finally found some keepers.
So this new movie Apollo 18 looks siiiick.
THE REAL REASON WE NEVER WENT BACK TO THE MOON
Well, actually, we ARE going back. Not humans per se, but the Google Lunar X PRIZE is trying to kick-start the private space exploration race with a competition to send a data-gathering robot to the moon, and almost 30 teams have jumped onboard.
“The $30 million Google Lunar X PRIZE is an unprecedented competition to challenge and inspire engineers and entrepreneurs from around the world to develop low-cost methods of robotic space exploration. To win the Google Lunar X PRIZE, a privately-funded team must successfully place a robot on the Moon’s surface that explores at least 500 meters (1/3 of a mile) and transmits high definition video and images back to Earth. The first team to do so will claim a $20 million Grand Prize, while the second team will earn a $5 million Prize. Teams are also eligible to win a $1 million award for stimulating diversity in the field of space exploration and as much as $4 million in bonus prizes for accomplishing additional technical tasks such as moving ten times as far, surviving the frigid lunar night, or visiting the site of a previous lunar mission. To date, more than 20 teams from a dozen countries around the world have registered to compete for the prize. The Google Lunar X PRIZE is available to be claimed until the end of the year 2015.

So I stumbled across this amazing collection of gospel funk. It makes church SEXY
According to the All Powerful and Everknowing iTunes:
“Good God! A Gospel Funk Hymnal is a sweet selection of African-American gospel with mostly obscure acts from the late 1960s and early 1970s… In 1965 James Brown and his band released a series of earthshaking singles beginning with the syncopated rumble of “I Got You (I Feel Good)” that turned soul music on its ear with their minimal arrangements and relentless grooves. Aspiring soul bands across the country sought to imitate Brown’s intoxicating new sound resulting in a renaissance of rough-shod, independently produced music.”
They are for sale for like 40 bucks a pop, which is ridic, but pretty awesome nonetheless.
SOMEONE MAKE THIS AND PUT IT ON YOUTUBE ALREADY
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
So Michel Gondry is attached to adapt and direct Philip K. Dick’s classic science fiction novel “Ubik,” according to Deadline Hollywood. For those of you who haven’t read Ubik, go jump off a bridge. For those of you who don’t know who Michel Gondry is, go jump off a bigger bridge.
This guy, and ONLY THIS GUY, could pull Ubik off.
And anyone who has their hands on a copy of the Ubik video game, GIVE IT TO ME NOW
