R2-D2 Measuring Cups from ThinkGeek.com Review

Posted by on Mar 18, 2015 in review, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Of all the products we got from the very generous ThinkGeek to review, this one is the one I was most excited about. Before I even knew we were going to get it to review, my friend had shared it on my Facebook wall and I knew I wanted to get it. She knows I’m a Star Wars fan and often tags me in all things Star Wars themed. I don’t mind, of course. But this one stood out to me more than others and I’m not even that big of a cook, really. In fact, if you’re not big on kitchen duty, this might even inspire you to spend some more time in there mixing and measuring things up. My thoughts? It looks really cool and I will probably display it more than I use it. However, if you do plan to use it, it works great. Just don’t microwave it and don’t put it in the dishwasher. You’re going to need to take care of R2-D2 by hand to keep him in good condition. It’s easy to use and easy to disassemble. They also measure up (tee hee) in terms of sizing....

Posted by on Feb 4, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Online gambling appears in the cards for the Canadian after the government-run gaming monopoly launched a tender for a technology provider. In January, the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commissiion (AGLC) said the concept of a government-run online gambling site was “actively under review” after determining there were “expectations from consumers that be available to Alberta players.” Alberta could soon join most provinces in having government-run online gambling sites.If the plan goes ahead will be able to play the slot games from home.Bill Robinson, the CEO of the Gaming and Liquor Commission , spoke with the Calgary Eyeopener’s David Gray about the plan to bring government-run online gaming to make popular.CEO Bill Robinson said the AGLC was “going out into the market place to see what types of programs exist and would be best for us.” Assuming they see something they like, provincial finance minister Robin Campbell would make the final call. He noted that people in Alberta are...

ESA Lands on Comet 67P

Posted by on Nov 13, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

A space probe just landing on a moving comet. They say it is like hitting a golf ball and having it land on the moon. This is a very rare and interesting event indeed. It took 10 years for the probe to reach the comment. Then it also had to achieve the difficult task of actually remaining on the comet. The event will hold a place in the history books for sure. The Washington Post used an Imperial Star Destroyer from Star Wars to compare the comet’s size. Way to get people into the story and current events by reaching them with nerd humor! I like that Washington Post uses an Imperial Star Destroyer to show the size of the comet Philae landed on! @StarWars pic.twitter.com/IrtThqIaTI — Amy Ratcliffe (@amy_geek) November 12, 2014     This is pretty cool: Comet 67P, to be visited by Rosetta/Philea.

More Cancelled Star Wars Games

Posted by on Oct 23, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

In the land of Star Wars games, many never make it to be played and enjoyed. It’s a cold, hard truth of the industry and one that we have seen happen time and time again, to the frustration of many onlooking fans. We experienced this with Star Wars 1313 and now you can add a cancelled, complete Rogue Squadron game for the Wii to the list. A recent interview on IGN’s podcast “Nintendo Voice Chat” we hear from Julian Eggebrecht, President of Factor 5 (now defunct) about where his team was at working on different Star Wars games for multiple platforms. In this interview, Eggebrecht says, “As you might remember, it leaked from LucasArts that we were working on a trilogy compilation, and that was actually for the [original] Xbox.” This trilogy was to contain: Star Wars: Rogue Squadron Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike The team had done close to 50% of the work on this trilogy that was to be one massive collection of all three...
