Nerd News: Atlantis, Simon and Nick do Star Wars, Super 8 and more

Vol. 2, Issue 11

A very happy St. Patrick's Day to you, friends! I am more than half Irish, and I definitely look it—dark hair, pale skin, green eyes, freckles (out the wazoo)—so I love to celebrate this holiday. And by celebrate, I mean wear green. (I'm not a big drinker, haha.) Oh, and I plan on making some Irish soda bread and partaking in some corned beef tomorrow at a friend's house.

Best thing I saw all week: This "shot-by-shot" remake of Star Wars from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.


I still have the giggles.

In movie news:
Here's a couple of trailers for your viewing pleasure:

Super 8

To go along with the previously posted Mean Disney Girls, here's Disney Punch.

People have such talent!

In TV news:
Thinking about Logan being Alan makes me laugh.

And finally, I love this new wallpaper.

I might have to think about changing my Misfits one. I really can't wait for April 23.

  4. That Simone Pegg and Nick Frost skit is just what i needed. Oh, and that Super 8 trailer rocks! It reminded me of a time where movies were good! That brings me to the Smurfs...(sigh). Is this from the creators of that Chipmunks movie? Well, thank you for this weekly Nerd News. ;) Haha! Keep 'em coming!

  12. Oh, I totally agree! I was so worried. David will always be "my doctor," but Matt really pulls it off.
