Collecting the Internet So You Don't Have To

We work on the Internet. As such, we are constantly consuming information. Believe me, there is a lot of it out there. Sometimes we even forget things unless we write them down. Our blog covers everything from web standards to the muppets, php to comic books, music and everything else that we find interesting. Leave us a note when you drop by.

Steven Spielberg directs a screenplay by Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish starring Georges Rémi's famous adventurer, Tintin. The movie is based on the two-part comic, The Secret Of The Unicorn and Red Rackham's Treasure. I read these books as a kid and am super-excited to see it on the big screen in a 3D Motion Capture film! :D

Last week, we had a party and a whole bunch of friends and family showed up to party with us. We had a large, well stocked bar (that featured a little too little scotch apprently), lots of snacks, some hot food prepared by Chef Dwayne in our kitchen, Elf on the big screen, and much merriment.

During the party, we asked that people bring food for the Christmas Cheer Board. Lots of you did and we ended up with over $300 worth of food and household items to drop off. Thank you everyone.

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law return as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson in Guy Ritchie's sequel, Game Of Shadows. This time they are joined by Jared Harris playing the criminal mastermind, Professor Moriarty. The first film was well put together, with Downey Jr. stealing the show as the title character.
