Of Elves , Men, and Americans

 

Elrond

Men? Men are weak. The race of Men is failing. The blood of Numenor is all but spent. Its pride and dignity forgotten. It is because of Men the Ring survives. I was there, Gandalf. I was there three thousand years ago… And Isildur took the Ring. I was there the day the strength of men failed.

 

Aragorn

Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!*

 

Kilgore

You smell that? Do you smell that?… Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for twelve hours. When it was all over I walked up. We didn’t find one of ’em, not one stinkin’ dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like… victory. Someday this war’s gonna end…

How Your Video Game System Can Help Cure Cancer

 

 

 

Gamers Can Now Help Stanford University Researchers with the “Folding@Home” Project
Now you can help fight cancer simply by playing video games from the comfort of your own home. Researchers at Stanford University have teamed up with Sony Computer Entertainment America, the makers of PlayStation, on the “Folding@Home” project. Folding@Home helps researchers study the folding, and more important, misfolding of human proteins, which can lead to understanding the cause and cure of diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and cystic fibrosis.
In order to study protein folding, researchers need more than just one super computer, but the massive processing power of thousands of networked computers. Previously, PCs have been the only option for scientists studying this, but now, they have a new, more powerful tool—PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3). The PS3’s cell processor is about 20 times faster at folding than a standard PC, giving even greater results in real time, allowing scientists to not only see but navigate the molecule in 3D.
To take part voluntarily, gamers just need to click on the Folding@Home icon within the main menu of the PS3. Then whenever their game system is idle, it will automatically begin the real-time simulations and the PS3’s graphic chip actually allows you to watch the process first hand. You can even manipulate and study the protein strand yourself.

Command & Conquer, the groundbreaking series that put the RTS genre on the map, is returning in full force with C&C 3. This highly-anticipated next chapter takes the popular series back to its roots in the Tiberium Universe and features the fast, fluid gameplay that Command & Conquer is known for and an epic tale that will redefine storytelling in RTS games.

It is 2047 and the stakes could not be higher. Tiberium—a self-replicating alien substance that has infected the Earth—is spreading like a radioactive ice age. The Global Defense Initiative, a high-tech alliance of the world’s most advanced nations, is fighting to contain Tiberium, but Kane, the megalomaniacal leader of The Brotherhood of Nod has other plans for Earth. Kane’s secret society turned superpower is bent on using Tiberium to take control and transform humanity into his twisted vision of the future. All-out war rages over Tiberium and the fate of the planet rests in the balance.

The epic story of C&C 3, set in the Tiberium Universe, is seamlessly tied together with live action, high-definition video sequences featuring top Hollywood talent including Tricia Helfer, Josh Holloway, Michael Ironside, Billy Dee Williams, Grace Park, and more.

300 sequel?

Even though “300? couldn’t possibly get a sequel, Frank Miller has started work on a comic that takes us back to Sparta. This happened after the “300? film adaption made a huge hit at the box office in the US. I don’t think we’ll be seeing king Leonidas back, but some other great story from the Spartans may be used for his next comic. Let’s hope that if anyone is going to direct this, it’s Zack Snyder. But he seems very busy with Watchmen at the moment so I don’t know. Everything also depends on the quality of the new comic book. If Frank just made it so he could get more cash then the quality won’t be as good as “300?, you can bet your ass on that. Still, I hope it’s going to be just as bloody as “300? even if there is a chance that this will be thrown in the Hollywood sequel-making machine.

The countdown is finally over, here’s the trailer for PotC: At World’s End!

At the end of Dead Man’s Chest, Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann, and their company find refuge with Tia Dalma, who offers them the opportunity to embark on a journey to rescue Captain Jack Sparrow from Davy Jones’ Locker. Tia Dalma announces the need for a captain that will guide them to “World’s End”, prompting the appearance of Captain Barbossa, believed to have been dead. The film then concluded.

Johnny Depp has said Jack Sparrow is confronted with many separate aspects of his character in Davy Jones’ Locker. Tia Dalma helps the crew to rescue Sparrow. Sparrow and Barbossa also team up with Sao Feng. According to director Gore Verbinski, “Piracy itself is at stake. It’s like the railroad coming to the West. There will be a conference of the world’s pirate leaders and a treacherous journey to the literal ‘World’s End’. The meeting is known as the Brethren of the Coast, consisting of nine pirate lords.

Concept art for the film shows an enormous water-fall, a whirlpool and a town composed of ship parts.

How to be a Successful Evil Overlord

How to be a Successful Evil Overlord
by Peter Anspach

Being an Evil Overlord seems to be a good career choice. It pays well, there are all sorts of perks and you can set your own hours. However every Evil Overlord I’ve read about in books or seen in movies invariably gets overthrown and destroyed in the end. I’ve noticed that no matter whether they are barbarian lords, deranged wizards, mad scientists, or alien invaders, they always seem to make the same basic mistakes every single time. With that in mind, allow me to present…

The Top 100 Things I’d Do If I Ever Became An Evil Overlord

  1. My Legions of Terror will have helmets with clear Plexiglas visors, not face concealing ones.
  2. My ventilation ducts will be too small to crawl through.
  3. My noble half-brother whose throne I usurped will be killed, not kept anonymously imprisoned in a forgotten cell in my dungeon.
  4. Shooting is not too good for my enemies.
  5. The artifact which is the source of my power will not be kept on the Mountain of Despair beyond the River of Fire guarded by the Dragon of Eternity. It will be in my safe-deposit box. The same applies to the object which is my one weakness.
  6. I will not gloat over my enemies predicament before killing them.
  7. When I’ve captured my adversary and he says, “Look, before you kill me, will you at least tell me what this is all about?” I’ll say, “No.” and shoot him. No, on second thought, I’ll shoot him and then say “No.”
  8. After I kidnap the beautiful princess, we will be married immediately in a quiet civil ceremony, not a lavish spectacle in three weeks’ time during which the final phase of my plan will be carried out.
  9. I will not include a self-destruct mechanism unless absolutely necessary. If it is necessary, it will not be a large red button labelled, “Danger: Don Not Push”. The big red button marked “Do Not Push” will instead trigger a spray of bullets on anyone stupid enough to disregard it. Similarly, the ON/OFF switch will clearly not be labelled as such.
  10. I will not interrogate my enemies in the inner sanctum – a small hotel room well outside my border will work just as well.
