Lackluster filler episode does little to push Supernatural Season 6 plot forward

Written by

Comments: --

Following a lead from their new boss Crowley, the Winchester brothers attempt to hunt down and capture the werewolf alpha. They come nowhere close to finding it, instead stumbling on a pack of skin-walkers, a monster more appropriate to a show like True Blood. Is that what Supernatural is shooting for now? Hope not…

The master plan spilled out basically all at once in the episode “Family Matters.” Starting with formally revealing that Sam doesn’t have a soul, as alluded to in the previous episode. Plus, the anemic storyline of Sam and Dean’s grandfather finally gets put into context in a twist that involves Crowley in a big way.

Halloween means ‘Thriller House’

Making a light show takes talent, but programming a crazy detailed light show in front of your house with all 6 minutes of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” takes a ridiculous amount of skill.

Thanks, KJ92508 for this awesome new addition to your light show line-up on YouTube. I know you must get this a lot, but I wish you were my neighbor.

Enjoy the thousands of flashing lights and singing pumpkin faces.

Happy Halloween!

Illustration of a neutron starA closer look at a super dense neutron star 4000 light years away has debunked what some scientists thought made up the star type’s core.

According to a new study published in Nature, a spectral analysis of the neutron star’s gravitational path proves once again that we have no fucking clue about what kind of matter makes up densest object we know.

It doesn’t matter what these stars are made of, just don’t forget to aim your Wii-mote around it to catch the Star Bits that came loose when the supernova collapsed in on itself.

Supernatural parodies Twilight fad in episode “Live Free or Twi-Hard”

Written by
Tiago Moura

Comments: --

It was only a matter of time until Supernatural started making fun of pop-cultural fads. In its latest episode, the show turns the critical voice it used to comment on its own fandom in the last two seasons toward the Twilight phenomenon, as well as the phenomenon’s implications in the show’s world. The results are pretty mixed, but the episode at least provides some plot advances for the season.

How to make “special effects” actually mean something

Written by
Tiago Moura

Comments: --

So this may be every photography teachers’ favorite video to show how camera effects like depth of field focus and make us perceive the world through camera film. The short film “The Third & The Seventh” by Alex Roman shows us how well shots can be composed. Most folks show it to their friends and students only to reveal its “secret” after they’ve taken in at least a few minutes of its grandeur.

Ready for the big reveal? If you haven’t already, watch the video first and then read on.
