Celebrities on Israel, return of the Walkman and who are three people who have never been in my kitchen?

If you’re a celebrity, it might be worth it to just go ahead and not say anything publicly about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Because if you do, regardless of what it is you say, you’re going to be called an anti-Semite, an Israel-hater, an Israel-firster, a terrorist sympathizer, a Hamas apologist, a self-hating Jew, or the equivalent of Hitler- and most likely, more than one of the above. Best case, half of the world will hate you, and worst case, both sides will end up hating you, whether for going too far or not far enough. Or maybe you end up writing a blog post that quotes John Lennon’s “Imagine” (PearlJam.com)

Along those lines, I had no idea how Lukidnik TMZ was…

Castle of Illusion appears on Macs this Thursday

You’ve heard of Disney’s Marvel Comics, Disney’s Star Wars and Disney’s The Muppets, but have you ever heard of Disney’s Mickey Mouse? Dude, I’m totally serious! Disney has this cartoon mouse character, and this cartoon mouse character has a game called Castle of Illusion that Feral Interactive is releasing for OS X on Thursday, July 24th.

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse was originally released in 1990 for the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive, and was remade last year for PS3, Xbox, and PC. In it, Minnie Mouse is kidnapped by the evil witch Mizrabel, and it’s up to Mickey to rescue her from Mizrabel’s castle, “… a magical stronghold where ingeniously challenging levels await the intrepid mouse behind every door.”

“The Ring 3″ officially in production– audiences prepare to spend 2015 unplugging their TV sets before bed

image

Paramount Pictures is moving ahead with “The Ring 3″–finally!– and has appointed Javier Gutiérrez to helm the project, which is rumored to be a prequel that follows the history of Samara’s terror. Bring on the psychopathic mother tropes!

The $400M-grossing horror franchise cashed in on 1998 Japanese success “Ringu“, directed by Hideo Nakata and adapted from Kōji Suzuki’s novel, by retelling the terror that sparked the Creepy Dead Kids horror trend. “The Ring” terrified audiences in the US for the first time in 2002. Directed by Gore Verbinski and starring Naomi Watts, it won immediate popularity for its strong horror plot, but was rejected by others in terms of its character development…

A “Star Wars” skeptic on the leaked plot details

I’m going to be honest with you good people. I don’t like “Star Wars” and never – not once – in my bitter, loveless and angry life did I ever like “Star Wars”. So to all of you hardcore “Star Wars” fans out there, consider what I’m about to write a warning: “Star Wars: Episode VII” sounds like a good movie.

According to Bad Ass Digest, a basic synopsis of “Star Wars: Episode VII” has been leaked. Whether it’s the real deal or a hoax is unknown at this time, but let’s hope it’s real because it sounds like the “Star Wars” franchise is venturing into some gory, grindhouse-level of filmmaking. As Bad Ass Digest has noted, the film opens on

… a hand! A severed hand, tumbling through space. A severed hand gripping a light saber.

I want to be a holdout in the 2070 fully autonomous world

I enjoyed this infographic from www.mojomotors.com that takes the opinion of a bunch of auto manufacturers, analysts, and pundits and ties together a realistic roadmap for when autonomous vehicles will hit the streets. The interesting time I hope I am alive for is the year 2070, with geriatric holdouts who will not relinquish the wheel. But, then again, I come from a family where my mom still has a functioning VCR. The other interesting time is 2030, when the only cars you can buy will be autonomous. Somewhere in the year 2105, someone named Isaiah just might be last human being familiar with driving a manual transmission vehicle…

The Ninja Turtles, pizza and Macaulay Culkin converge in Philadelphia

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie franchise (old and new), former child star Macaulay Culkin, the Velvet Underground and reams of pizza all converged Friday night in Philadelphia’s Eakins Oval, in a multigenerational confluence of fun.

The event was part of AwesomeFest, a occasional series of cool, off-beat events in the Philly area. Held in conjunction with next month’s new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, Friday’s event was an outdoor open air pizza party- featuring the turtles’ favorite food, of course- as well as a screening of the original 1990 Turtles film…

Why square format pictures are cool, even with an iPhone or iPad

Mary Gordon over at Macworld has posted a nifty tutorial article on taking square pictures on the iPhone’s decidedly un-square composition screen.

Ms. Gordon notes that square format pictures are currently in vogue on social media and elsewhere, and presumably in recognition of that trend, iOS 7 added a dedicated Square mode. To enter the square world, swipe once to the left from the main Camera screen to bring up the cropped shooting screen. On the iPad, just select “Square” from the three mode options below the shutter button. On either device, but most pertinent to the iPad, it rescues you from having to hold the devices at a more awkward angle to optimize rectangular composition.

Ms.Gordon goes on to suggest some tips and techniques for composing great-looking square shots…

Can’t we all just get along?

Two of my colleagues wrote articles yesterday about their very different stances regarding “Internet delusions.” I suppose it’s in my nature to find a diplomatic common ground, instead of choosing sides. Maybe it’s because I’m the oldest of three kids, and someone’s always got to be mediator. Whatever it is, I’d prefer to look at both sides of this argument through a neutral lens (as best I can), as opposed to the dreaded Millennial scope. Perhaps if we can all agree on something, we can avoid this argument erupting into a heated West Side Story feud. Although, I think Devon could pull off those dance moves perfectly. Scott, I’ll have to meet you in person first.

I suggest reading their articles first before continuing! Here’s Scott‘s and here’s Devon‘s.

‘Ouija’ trailer features Olivia Cooke talking to dead people

Brace yourselves, the sucky Halloween scary movies are coming. First on the list (in order of suckiness), “Ouija”, from veteran genre writers Juliet Snowden and Stiles White, the latter turned director on the heels of his “The Possession” and “Knowing” hits.

Wait, “The Possession” and “Knowing” were utter crap, and so was the duo’s rookie stab at “redefining” horror films, 2005’s “Boogeyman”. But they all made boatloads of cash (yes, including “Boogeyman”), so who cares about stuff like original scripts, spooky, developed characters and multi-layered plots?
