Awesome Robot invasion short video - Ataque de Pánico! (Panic Attack!)

This apocalyptic robot invasion movie is definitely an impressive work of art!

According to Variety, Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures has made a deal with Alvarez, the clip's director, to direct a movie based on the short. If you remember District 9 was another movie that grew out of a short video.

What's even more impressive than the video, is that this cost less than $500 to make!

Leonard Nimoy has only one more Fringe Episode - and Observers tonight!

From Sci Fi Wire: Leonard Nimoy talks about his Fringe contract, and how he is only scheduled to be in one more episode:

"We agreed that I would do three episodes," he said. "I have filmed three. Two have been on the air. One will be airing sometime in the near future, and that's the extent of my commitment so far. I think the work that I did served a very important purpose, which was to explain the alternate side and what the major problem could potentially be."

I really enjoyed seeing Nimoy play William Bell, the mysterious founder of Massive Dynamics. Hopefully the last episode with him is a well written one!

Tonight's episode should be good - it'll finally explain some questions about the Observers. I personally think the Observers are good guys, so it'll be interesting to see what's explained tonight.

Preview of tonight's episode:

Teaching your kid Klingon before English?


I don't have any kids yet, but I couldn't see myself ever trying to teach my future kids Klingon before English. First off, I don't speak Klingon, so I'm kinda limited there. Second, why would that ever make sense?!

This article {link}, is about a father who decided to teach his son Klingon first as an experiment. The linked story is mostly about a company's dictionary/translation software, but thankfully the interesting part is right on top.

Third part of the V miniseries tonight!

I've been watching every episode of this miniseries, and can't wait for tonight's. Whoever did the casting for the show did a great job too. Alan Tudyk and Morena Baccarin both from Firefly/Serenity, Elizabeth Mitchell from Lost - the actors are just awesome. It's nice to have some more quality scifi on tv.

Here are some V related links and media:
