If you’re looking for some musical/rock/theater to pass the time then look no further. Tim Armstrong of the legendary punk band Rancid has written his own musical that takes place in the seedy underbelly of Rock and Roll. Check out this first episode and see what Armstrong brings to his latest project.
Homage to the classic American Musicals, Tim Timebomb’s RockNRoll theater centers on Armstrong as today’s punk rock Rod Serling, leading and narrating suspenseful episodes with a variety of special guest actors and musicians. Each Episode features extensive song and dance numbers with hard-hitting rock musical songs and rousing dance numbers all wrapped in a dark edge and all written by Armstrong.
The on again, off again shark book that could have been a shark movie Meg is getting a prequel that looks to be only in E Book form. I really dug this book when I first read it back in the 90′s but I’ve never been really shocked that it’s not been able to be made into a movie. The ending is pretty far fetched and to do the story right would probably cost about 200 million dollars. Check out the trailer below and head over to his website to pick it up for only .99 cents.
From the Press Release:
As a teenager, NY Times best-selling author Steve Alten read JAWS
The first two books in The Strain Trilogy were a bit hit or miss for me. I enjoyed the concept behind the two but at times it seemed a bit formulaic. That being said I look forward to seeing how the third book in the series “The Night Eternal” wraps up the story. Pick it up when it hits stores on 10-25-2011 and check out the synopsis below.
From the authors of the instant New York Times bestsellers The Strain and The Fall comes the final volume in one of the most electrifying thriller series in years.

On a day when Netflix put its new higher prices into effect one of their content providing partners Starz announced that they would end negotiations with Netflix and set an end date for when it would allow streaming on the Netflix site. February 28, 2012 will be the last day of their partnership.
“Starz Entertainment has ended contract renewal negotiations with Netflix.

The Book of Mormon’ took home nine Tonys Sunday and the night’s biggest crown thanks to a story and song that both poked fun and honored Broadway’s history.
‘South Park’ creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone beat out ‘Catch Me If You Can’, ‘The Scottsboro Boys’ and ‘Sister Act’ to win the title for the musical about two Mormon missionaries who find more than they bargain for in Uganda.
The show’s win wasn’t a huge surprise with more than $10 million in sales and 14 Tony nominations.
Chris Rock even joked that opening the envelope to make the announcement was like “buying dinner for a hooker”, but it wasn’t always that way, especially when the musical was being conceived.
“That was the big question: are the grey hairs gonna come and are the South Park people going to come to something they can’t afford?” says Stone. “But I’ve seen some really old people in there laughing their asses off!”
True to the style of ‘South Park’, the script is rife with plenty of four-letter words and controversial lyrics but star Nikki M. James points out: “Any dialogue is better than no dialogue. We’re getting people talking!”
Can’t wait until Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s fantastic series hits the big screen? Well, hit the jump to take a look at this ultra-violent motion comic style animation that one clever fan has come up with…
Although we’ve seen many comic books receive the motion comic treatment by Marvel in the past couple of years, it would seem that fans are now coming up with their own versions as the following video shows. A big screen adaptation of Nemesis is currently in the works (with Tony Scott set to direct) but until then, here’s an animated preview of what we can expect!
Directed by Kevin Tancharoen, this new Mortal Kombat Web Series is coming alone nicely and as reported earlier out April…
Kano is the leader of the Black Dragon criminal empire. Making his first chronological appearance in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces, he freed fellow Black Dragon cohorts No Face, Tasia, Jarek and Tremor from a U.S. Special Forces security facility, under the pretense that they would reform the Black Dragon organization.
Warner Bros. Has recently announced a joint partnership with Facebook in which they will streaming movies on the site, starting with ‘The Dark Knight’…
Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ is coming to Facebook via a new on-demand service being set up through a partnership with the WB and Facebook.
Facebook users will pay for the video with 30 Facebook credits which is equal to roughly $3 and you’ll still have the ability to pause the movie, go full-screen, and continue with all your regular Facebook uses such as “Liking” your friends annoying status updates.
The downside is the video will only be available for purchase for a limited time (48 hours) but during that time you’ll be able to watch it as many times as you want. I’m not sure if the 48 hours thing is just a trial run or if that will be the going rate once the service is fully set up.
For those of you wishing to watch ‘The Dark Knight’ on Facebook, the link is

Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the ‘Super-Soldier Serum’ and bombarded by ‘vita-rays.’ Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and leader of the Avengers.
