Fast & Furious 7 stars Jordana Brewster and Vin Diesel have paid tribute to their former co-star Paul Walker at the MTV Movie Awards 2014.

Speaking at the ceremony, which took place last night in Los Angeles, Brewster – who also stars in TV series Dallas - said Walker had the power to make people ‘feel like the most important person in the world’.

‘This past November, tragedy struck when Paul Walker’s life shockingly ended. The immense outpouring of grief around the world was a reflection of the kind of man Paul was,’ the 33-year-old said.

‘He was so, so special. I was lucky enough to work with him over the last 15 years and witness the generosity of his heart every day I was with him.

‘He was humble, he thought about others. Whether you knew Paul for five minutes or a…

Intergalactic Space Babes – Claudia Christian

April 14, 2014

Originally posted on Micro Filums' Blog:

Claudia Christian is rightly worshipped for her portrayal of Lt. Cmdr. Susan Invanova, the hot headed, Russian, Jewish, bisexual, latent telepathic heart of Babylon 5.

But I’ve always thought that the real reason Claudia Christian has become such a cult favourite is not just down to her acting ability, charisma, or even her knock-out good looks.

No. Something else is at work here. Something that, for want of a better word, I’ve decided to call:

‘FUN.

Claudia is the kind of actor who doesn’t merely roll up to a Sci Fi convention, collect her fee, scribble a few overpriced autographs, then disappear into the Green Room, never to be seen again.

Oh, no …

Claudia is the kind of actor who throws her own convention – a convention that puts the fans first. With an after party in a pub. Then it’s all back to her flat for a…

The Christchurch Earthquake: tectonic plates and fault lines

April 13, 2014

Originally posted on Posts from Keith Woodford:

In an attempt to understand the Christchurch earthquakes I have been forced to do a lot of reading. There is a lot of good material ‘out there’, but much of it assumes a prior knowledge of geology. Some of the best material for non-geologists  is in the Learning Section at www.gns.cri.nz    Another site that I  found to be very informative was  the Mt Aspiring College website. The starting point (hard to find from the home page) is http://mtaspiring.school.nz/Tephra/Thehowwhatandwhereofanearthquake.htm   (Alternatively, search Google using the terms  ‘Mt Aspiring’ and ‘earthquake’.) From there,  go through the various pages within the earthquake section. The nice thing about the Mt Aspiring College material  is that it is put together by professional educators, who know how to write for a non-expert audience, and also know how to put together a professional website.

In this post I report in summary terms what I learned from these plus…

Westboro Batshit Church Gets Chased Out Of Oklahoma Town In Under 10 Minutes

You’d think that with the the Westboro Baptist Church would grow a little quieter for a while, but they have kept their obnoxious and hateful protest speeches going strong.



They recently showed up in Moore, Oklahoma, the site of a deadly F5 tornado that killed 24 and injured 377 just last year, urging them to “repent” for their “sins” that God was “punishing” them for.

The townspeople would have none of it. They immediately ran WBC protesters out of town… in less than 10 minutes.

Via :

God has given Moore, Oklahoma many chances to repent…On 5/2/13, God struck Moore with an EF5 tornado, killing 24, injuring 377 others, including many of your children…Not once did a single voice [besides WBC] say, Repent!

The War Between Russians and Jews

April 8, 2014

Originally posted on Beyond Highbrow - Robert Lindsay:

The Jews and Russian people never liked each other much. However, I think there was a truce in the USSR. I do not think the USSR was an anti-Jewish nation any way, shape or form. In fact, an Israeli leader said it was an “anti-anti-Semitic country.” He described the USSR as one of the most Jew-friendly countries that ever existed.

However, after 1948, this relationship got very complicated. The new criminal Israeli state quickly aligned with the West and became a sworn enemy of the USSR and the Russian people. Most Soviet Jews remained patriotic, but a new class of Jewish nationalists (Zionists) were seen as traitors by Stalin, who killed some of them. Some of these Jewish nationalists may well have murdered Com. Stalin.

After, the USSR was still very good to the Jews, but they did not allow Jewish nationalists to leave for Israel (personally they should have…

Pro-Russian Protesters Seize Government Buildings in Ukraine’s Donetsk, Lugansk and Kharkov

April 7, 2014

Originally posted on Libya 360°:


Thousands of people waving Russian flags flooded the streets of eastern Ukraine on Sunday. Demonstrators in the cities of Donetsk, Lugansk, and Kharkov seized state offices, while in Donetsk they also demanded an independence referendum.

Over 2,000 people gathered in Lenin Square in the center of Donetsk to petition for the Berkut officers, who – they believe – are falsely accused of using fire arms against the rioters during the Maidan standoff.

The participants in the event called on the “illegal junta in Kiev” to end political repressions and persecution of dissidents, the Itar-Tass news agency reports.

They demanded their right for self-determination to be respected, pushing for a Crimea-style referendum on independence from Ukraine.

The protesters carried Russian national flags, chanted “Russia! Russia!” and displayed banners urging the new Donetsk Region governor, Sergey Taruta, who was recently appointed by Kiev, “to get out.”

What Games Are: Fire TV And The “Casual Console”

April 6, 2014

Editor’s note:  Tadhg Kelly is a veteran game designer and creator of leading game design blog What Games Are. He manages developer relations at OUYA. You can follow him on Twitter here.

Sometimes I have to walk a fine line between my weekday job and my writing. Not because I’m enjoined from writing (actually Julie actively encourages it) but to rather to avoid the perception of conflict-of-interest. It’s easy to write about a game design issue, for example, or talk about the fate of VR because they’re not likely to be perceived as influenced by my work situation. On the other hand writing about topics like microconsoles is a lot trickier.

But then sometimes a long comes a piece of news that comes close. This is one such time, because of course Amazon can’t be ignored. Fire TV is sitting on the front page of Amazon.com, featured by one…
