Fifty Years of James Bond: The Movie

An intrepid James Bond fan has put together a pretty cool mash-up/compilation of the last 50 years of Eon Productions’ James Bond movies. He’s created a two-hour long video with five-minute long segments from each movie put together in sequence of when the movie was released.

The video’s description says:

Approximately five minutes from each of the 22 Eon produced James Bond films have been cut together, in order and in sequence, beginning with the first five minutes of DR. NO (1962) followed by minutes 5-10 of FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (1963), minutes 10-15 of GOLDFINGER (1964), minutes 15-20 of THUNDERBALL (1965), continuing on through each of the remaining 18 Bond features (accounting for variables in each title’s running time) culminating with the final five minutes of 2008’s QUANTUM OF SOLACE.

The Best of TED Talks

For the longest while, I never understood what TED was. Most of what I gleamed from Twitter was that it was some sort of lecture series about social media and technology. However, there’s so much more to it that I’m disappointed I didn’t discover it sooner. So for today’s instalment of our Best of the Interweb series, it’s a look at some of the best TED talks on the internet. Continue reading

Star Wars Uncut

When George Lucas commissioned the 1997 Special Edition updates to the original Star Wars trilogy (which opened in theatres 15 years ago today), he did so to improve the special effects of the film using modern technology so it looked closer to his original vision. When former Vimeo developer Casey Plugh commissioned his Star Wars project, he wanted to bring together Star Wars’ most die-hard fans to crowd source a tribute to the great original version of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope in Star Wars Uncut.

The Layover: The Complete First Season

Given how similar we are, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m a fan of chef/TV personality Anthony Bourdain. Last November, the Travel Channel debuted a second show starring Bourdain. This new one follows Tony as he spends a day in a city and explores the local culture and food scenes. Appropriately, this one is called The Layover. Fans of No Reservations will recognize the style of show but condensed into a smaller time frame.

Today, we bring you all ten of this season’s episodes including Tony’s layover in Montreal. Continue reading

Apart from this post, we’re taking the day off. So enjoy this year’s unofficial Star Wars Christmas special called The Sith Who Stole Christmas. Continue reading

NewsRadio: The Complete Series

The plight of Community reminds me of what happened to another critically acclaimed but low-rated NBC sitcom. The classic NBC sitcom NewsRadio was a critical success but never found a steady audience because it moved timeslots 11 times over only five seasons. Despite falling short of the old magic threshold of 100 episodes, it did find legs as a syndicated show but seems to have largely disappeared off the face of the earth. Fortunately, there is a little thing called the internet.

So that title is not wrong. We have all 97 episodes of NewsRadio after the jump. Continue reading
