Build your own Dark Knight Go-Kart!!!!

Tully Sanem built his homemade Batmobile go-kart in the small garage behind his apartment after seeing advertisements for “The Dark Knight” last year. Sanem hopes to sell schematics to others who want to build their own superhero vehicle.

“It's kind of strange when I was building it - everything just fell into place,” Sanem said. “It's kind of written in the stars.”

Star Trek

For Father's Day I got the afternoon "off" to go see a movie. Star Trek was my pic. Great movie!!! For people who know nothing about the Trek universe, this is a great little film to get you excited about the franchise and start watching the old Shatner and Nimoy series again. (it's on late night on SPACE)And for the legion of fans that so "know" what a great homage to years, decades of back story and mythos.

I like the cast...nice cameo by Lenard Nimoy...good story line...

Cool Batman fan film

This is a great little film that is suppose to "bridge the gap" between BATMAN BEGINS and THE DARK KNIGHT. It was actually made in Chicago, and if you look closely, it's filmed on some of the same locations as BEGINS and TDK. It's edited with some of the original films as well.
So click here and take a look.

Heath Ledger "Best Villain"

Heath Ledger won "Best Villain" for The Dark Knight at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, though it was announced before the show on the red carpet by MTV News correspondent Sway.
Why they pre-announced it I'll never know. Seems kind of anti-climatic to me.
