nsfw: the greatest keyboard ever

LK-poster

No, you haven’t accidentally connected to Engadget, but I am taking some time for a NSFW post (that’s No Sci-Fi Wednesdays for the nubies) to tell you about a neat nerd-toy I’ve been patiently waiting for since forever – the perfect backlit keyboard.  Someone finally made it and I’m going to explain (and show you) why this one succeeds where all others have FAILED… Continue reading ‘nsfw: the greatest keyboard ever’

avatar trailer review: dances with beowolves

AvatarBB_billboard_1

So I found out a little too late about last week’s free, worldwide IMAX screening of a fifteen minute preview of James Cameron’s upcoming AVATAR (for those who aren’t super nerds, AVATAR is basically Jim’s first movie since TITANIC and will be out this winter in 3D).  I tried to get tickets the night before the event but the website told me every theater was totally and completely 100% for sure  sold out.  Luckily, Darth Mojo correspondent (and 3D stereo whiz kid) Jim Carbonetti was there and kindly offered to share his thoughts on what he saw…

music post: ferris bueller’s day off

FB-cover-poster

 If you’re between the ages of 35 and 45, chances are that John Hughes (who sadly passed away last week) played a major role in your growth as an adolescent.  Films like Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club addressed the attitudes and angst of a decade and, I daresay, no other film maker before or since has so empathically connected with his audience.  Culturally and intellectually, these movies captured the 80s like snapshots in a yearbook; if you were in high school or college at the time, Hughes’ body of work is as much a part of your memories as was learning to drive or your first kiss.   But the two hours that defined my existence was Ferris Bueller’s Day off…

shafted by shatner

meanshat

I’m not sure how public this story has gotten, but mere hours after I posted images of William Shatner in 3D, the following events unfolded (cooincidence?).  I thought I’d turn the mike over to my good friend Howard Cronson, who is at the center of the action…

It’s Thursday, August 6, and I’m sitting at home watching the Red Sox play the Yankees. As a devout Boston Red Sox fan living near Boston, during a game this is the only spot you’ll find me in.   In fact, it would take an Act Of God to pull me away from a Sox game.

Well, an Act Of God or William Shatner, that is.  So why does he mock me so?

should i buy an iphone?

iphone_ass

I’ve been on the fence for a while about one of these but it’s renewal time at AT&T and if there was ever a perfect time for me to pull the trigger, it’s now.   The only problem is I abhore change;  I love my current Samsung A717 clamshell and the idea of joining the Cult-Of-Mac makes me a little gunshy.  So, I’ll open the floor to all Darth Mojo reader – after all, you guys are my conscience, my moral compass and my most trusted advisors.  Today, you can be my financial planners.  Should I or shouldn’t I?  I’ll even turn off the comment approvals for this one!  ‘Ave at it and either talk me into – or out of – an iPhone 3GS!

The shat in 3D!

My good pal and stereo imaging expert extraordinaire Jim Carbonetti recently ran across William T. Shatner at a trade show and took some 3D video of our beloved captain.  Carbo was gracious enough to provide a few anaglyphs for all the lucky Darth Mojo readers out there who made the effort to go out and pick up some 3D glasses at Blockbuster.  Click ahead for a few more images that show Bill’s true depth as a performer…
