FAN FILM FRIDAY: Star Trek TOS: Beyond Antares

Republibot 4.0's picture

Yeah, I know I said I wanted to get away from the Big Three of fan film inspirations, but this one is rather interesting. It's a CGI episode stitched together and animated from random bits of original dialog, and completed over three years while the animator was struggling with lymphatic cancer.

Real Science: Alternative Fuel Sources

Republibot 4.0's picture

Eat, drink, and be merry--and produce renewable energy while you're at it. Here's a list of some off-beat sources of energy, from using chocolate waste (chocolate has waste?) to fuel a race car, to turning dance steps into electricity. Even dirty diapers can get recycled and used as an energy source...although I think I'll stick with the methane from cattle, if it's all the same to you.

Halloween Costume Ideas, From Comic Con 2013

Republibot 4.0's picture

Today being one of the days when it's suddenly OK to dress up as some outlandish character and go around town shaking people down for candy--the other days being "any time a sci fi convention is in town"-- I thought it appropriate to showcase some really creative costume ideas from this year's Comic Con.

Thanks to Neatorama for posting this and other great galleries. It's not too late to draw some inspiration from other folks' sick and twisted fantasies!

A Tribute To Lou Scheimer

Mama Fisi's picture

If you were a kid during the 1970's or 1980's, you probably watched some cartoons by the Filmation animation house. They produced cartoons as varied as Masters of the Universe and Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

Lou Scheimer was the founder and guiding force behind Filmation Studios. He passed away on October 17, 2013, a few days short of his 85th bithday.
