You should start visiting the new OOKEE.com. Update your bookmarks! We’ll leave this site open for posterity, but everything new will be coming to you at the above link. We’re still tweaking the interface (particularly the yellow… not a big fan of yellow) so don’t be surprised by little changes.
After much thought and reflection, I’ve decided to relaunch the site. This one won’t go away, but it will only be used as an archive of old material. Once the new site is ready you’ll see a link appear here on the front page directing you to the new location.
For those authors who still wish to contribute, please contact me; you have my email address!
Who knows how much Volkswagon had to pay to George Lucas to create this ad… I don’t care; it’s damn cute!
Hats off to Matt and Trey for making something so awesome out of such crap source material.
Everyone knows the story Twas the Night Before Christmas. Perhaps not everyone knows the existential angst implied and seeping through the entire story, as interpreted by Werner Herzog…
OK, it’s a bunch of guys singing Lady Gaga…I grant that sounds a bit out of the closet … as does my watching “Sing Off,” an American Idol like show with acapella groups … it’s actually pretty amazing. They aren’t my favorites, but these guys are really good. This is a video of them doing Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance. It’s the University of Oregon’s entry into the show and they’re called “On the Rocks” (I guess at least one good thing came from the Ducks). I think the most impressive thing is there are no instruments.
This looks like a fun movie: orcs invade a national park and the park rangers have to save the day (at least according to their FB page). Unfortunately, there’s no firm release date. After watching this I’m thinking they should take the plots of almost any zombie movie and replace the zombies with orcs. Could orcs be the new zombie?
Movie summaries can be accurate, but phrased in a way that doesn’t seem to fit what we know or think about the movie. For example, which movie is this: Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again. Think about it. Think hard… Got it? It’s the Wizard of Oz. How about this one: “Disaffected farm boy destroys military installation, killing thousands. Sounds like some Midwestern Department of Homeland Security nightmare, but that’s just Star Wars.
John Scalzi presents a whole list of such accurate but misleading summaries. What can you come up with?
