Procrastinate on This! It’s On Like Tron (2)

Stuff to do while you’re waiting for the clock to countdown to COB…

1. No, seriously, it’s on like Tron. Jeff Bridges told the UK’s Guardian, that not only has he signed on for the sequel, but it’s going to be much more kick-ass:

Well, when we made Tron there was no internet, no cellphones. But now we have motion capture, so I think we’ll get a far more successful version of the story, which is someone literally getting sucked into a video game. When we did King Kong in the 70s, one minute you’d have a shot of Rick Baker in this big suit and then you’d cut to this 80ft stiff model, and they looked nothing alike. Compare to that Peter Jackson’s King Kong the technology is there and they did a wonderful job. I thought they created a beautiful Kong. So I hope that’ll be the same for Tron.

Not quite Patrick Stewart on Dr. Who, but exciting nonetheless. Read the Gawker coverage — which is a ton more interesting and fanboyriffic than the actual article here.

2. I’m a proud nerd, but apparently there are still some computer basics that I don’t know. Including:

* You can hide all windows, revealing only what’s on the computer desktop, with one keystroke: hit the Windows key and “D” simultaneously in Windows, or press F11 on Macs (on recent Mac laptops, Command+F3; Command is the key with the cloverleaf logo)


* On the iPhone, hit the Space bar twice at the end of a sentence. You get a period, a space, and a capitalized letter at the beginning of the next word.

See what all you still don’t know about computers and their accompanying electronic accesories in this super-useful New York Time article here.

3. “i like some stuff. i hate some stuff. here’s a bunch of whatever. enjoy. oh – and there is no room for comments because i don’t care what you have to say…<3” … so states the header of my favorite new celebrity blog, which happens to be written by one of my favorite co-workers, Negative Natalie. If you’re curious about what all the “MTV kids” are talking about, but don’t have the patience for Perez Hilton, check out her quick, easy-to-digest blog here.

Two more bits of procrastination in the form of two trailers after the jump:

4. This trailer made me realize that I would probably be even more interested in my 12yo crush, if I had found out that he was a vampire — especially if he bit all of my bullies (which I had quite a few of back then).

5. Quirky, Indie and The Flaming Lips??? I’m so there. You probably didn’t know this about me, but I’m a free radical.
