There is nothing I could say that could convey the awesome of Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition. These amazing cosplayers singing Star Wars-inspired lyrics to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody are amazing, and the vocal theme after the song is worth watching the credits for. It’s a shame that the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, Arizona isn’t near me, cause I’m certain the lot of us would be friends.
Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition
Matters. Nothing really.

See larger image Star Wars Origami: 36 Amazing Paper-folding Projects from a Galaxy Far, Far Away.... (Paperback) Kids love origami—and what could be cooler than transforming a piece of paper into Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Yoda, or R2-D2? And not just any paper, but custom-designed paper illustrated with art from the movies. Star Wars® Origami marries the fun of paper folding with the obsession of Star Wars. Like The Joy of Origami and Origami on the Go, this book puts an original spin on an ancient art. And like Star Wars® Scanimation® and Star Wars® Fandex®, it’s a fresh take on Star Wars mania.
Chris Alexander is a master folder and founder of the popular website StarWarsOrigami.com, and here are 36 models, clearly explained, that range in difficulty from Youngling (easy) to Padawan (medium), Jedi Knight (difficult), and Jedi Master (tricky!). A front section introduces origami definitions and basic folds. Bound in the back is the book’s unique folding paper, two sheets for each figure. Illustrated with original art, it makes each creation—the essential lightsabers, the Death Star, and much more—true to the movies.
Star Wars Origami includes a foreword by Tom Angleberger, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back, and is scheduled to be published at the same time as Angleberger’s upcoming book, The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee.

With only one month and one day until the premiere of the second half of Teen Wolf‘s Season 3, it’s time to catch up. What kind of fallout will Scott, Stiles, and Allison experience after they sacrificed themselves to save their parents? A touch of insanity, if the TV spots are any indication.
We have new cast photos, including newbie classmate Kira (Arden Cho), “a girl with remarkable powers of her own”, a very creepy new TV spot, and a press release that also announces the new half hour post-show Wolf Watch, Teen Wolf‘s version of Talking Dead, hosted by Jill Wagner, who played Allison’s Aunt Kate until Peter ripped her throat out:
TV Spot: Teen Wolf – Season 3.5 Hallway
The highly anticipated second half of “Teen Wolf” season three will begin on Monday, January 6, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Additionally, the network will debut the new talk show “Wolf Watch” set to air weekly after each “Teen Wolf” episode. The season premiere episode picks up three weeks after saving the lives of their parents, Scott, Stiles and Allison begin to suffer strange side effects from their ritual sacrifice. At the same time, the newly enlightened Sheriff Stilinski scours through old cases, reassessing whether each could have had supernatural causes. Throughout the upcoming season, Scott struggles to find his place as an Alpha, while he, Allison and Stiles begin to experience strange side effects as a result of reigniting the power within Beacon Hills. They soon discover that the answer to their problems may be found in a new student named Kira (played by Arden Cho), a girl with remarkable powers of her own.
“Wolf Watch” will be hosted by Jill Wagner, who plays “Kate Argent” in “Teen Wolf.” The half-hour talk show will give fans even more insight into the hit series, covering topics ranging from the heavy mythology elements featured in the season, to the steamy romances and hilarious bromances that run rampant between the series’ supernatural high-schoolers. The series will welcome guest appearances by “Teen Wolf” cast members sharing behind-the-scenes secrets and celebrity super fans will also drop in to get some of the answers viewers crave from week to week.
The hugely successful first half of season three averaged a 2.5 P12-34 rating and 2.8 million total viewers each week, making it the highest-rated and most-watched season to date. The first half of season three also ranked as the #1 program in its time slot each week.

Rating: R (Restricted)
Brian De Palma's 1976 adaption of Carrie set the bar extremely high for any future interpretations, with the director's operatic sensibilities proving an ideal match for Stephen King's potent Revenge-of-the-Nerd novel. Anchored by Sissy Spacek's fearless, rawboned performance, the film captured both the tremulous vulnerability of the main character and the horrifyingly indiscriminate force of her retaliation. (The climactic scene was shot in split-screen for a reason.) The newest take on the story has plenty of reasons to recommend it--most notably an intriguingly complex push-and-pull relationship between Carrie and her domineering mother--but it never quite balances the mixture of pathos and scares that makes the original linger so fiercely. Beginning with a commendably tense birth scene, the remake sticks close to the source material, in which a henpecked teenager (Chloë Grace Moretz) struggles to escape the grasp of her religious zealot mother (a scarily quiet Julianne Moore). After a locker room incident puts her in the sights of the high school elite, her discovery of her burgeoning supernatural talents leads to an unforgettable prom night. Director Kimberly Peirce, whose treatment of an outsider in the excellent Boys Don't Cry made her an inspired choice for the material, absolutely nails the current scary state of high school bullying, where the existence of camera phones allows even the slightest humiliation to reach a mass audience. That understanding, combined with the strong work of Moretz, Moore, and an able supporting cast (including Judy Greer as a sympathetic teacher), ensures that King's savage metaphor for adolescence still stings. The biggest difference between the 1976 and 2013 versions, ultimately, comes in the conception of the title character, who registers here as a much more assured figure, displaying a measure of control over her powers and judiciously doling out punishment while (mostly) sparing the innocent. While Carrie's night at the gym still delivers a gory charge, the decision to have a more proactive heroine makes this rendition feel less like a horror movie, and more like a twisted superhero origin story. --Andrew Wright New From: 0 Out of Stock Used from: Out of Stock
After all the coverage of the recent 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, we needed a break, right? Are you crazy? Of course not. Thank goodness for the upcoming Christmas special. And here’s the latest: BBC America has confirmed via its Facebook page that the Doctor Who Christmas Special, Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor, will premiere - well, I’ll let them tell it:
So, plenty of time to open presents, accidentally break something, eat far more candy than anyone ever should, take a nap from the sugar low, and get all set up in front of the TV before the broadcast begins. Geronimo! Oh dear, maybe the last time for that…
And here’s the movie-type poster for the special:
Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor, starring Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman, and probably a very brief appearance by Peter Capaldi, airs Wednesday, December 25 at 9/8c on BBC America.
The teaser leading up to the trailer The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was less than awesome, but the trailer makes up for it. This is one you’ll have to watch again. It’s so packed with goodness that there’s no way your brain can absorb it in one viewing. Check it out!
