Fear the Walking Dead Trailer


AMC has offered up a glimpse of why we should all fear The Walking Dead prequel Fear the Walking Dead. This 30-second clip showcases series co-star Frank Dillane racing away from an unseen threat, which we all know to be a brain-hungry zombie.

But, in the world of the series, Dillane’s character, Nick, may not be entirely aware of what’s going on. That’s partly because he’s a college dropout with a bad drug habit, but also due to the fact that the series begins in the early days of the zombie apocalypse (a stretch of time during which Walking Dead hero Rick Grimes was in a coma), when the general public hasn’t yet awakened to the fact that civilization as they knew it was ending.

That’s a collapse that Fear the Walking Dead, which takes place in Los Angeles, will follow as the episodes progress, though creator Robert Kirkman also says the new series will eventually jump forward in time to line up with the chronology of its zombie mothership. Along with Dillane, the cast includes Kim Dickens and Cliff Curtis as an affianced couple, and Ruben Blades and Mercedes Mason as a father and daughter.

Fear the Walking Dead premieres in August on AMC.

The TV, which measures 2.6 x 1.8 meters, officially went on sale in China, the Middle East and ‘select’ European territories.  Samsung’s set doesn’t come with precious stones but it does have gesture controls, voice controls, and Samsung’s “Smart Hub,” which gives you access to online content, photos, video, music, and apps. It also has a quad-core processor, and Samsung’s S-Recommendation service, which tracks your viewing habits and makes viewing recommendations over time.

Check out these stunning images of poster artwork for the Doctor’s latest adventures. For people who do not follow the show, Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television program produced by the BBC. The program depicts the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord—a time-travelling humanoid alien. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Along with a succession of companions, the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs.

Breaking Bad Characters as Chemical Diagrams


badchemistry1 badchemistry2 badchemistry5 badchemistry3

In anticipation of the return of AMC’s Breaking Bad for the second half of its final season, Shutterstock analytically assembled “chemical diagrams” to represent significant characters from the show. The graphic series that the blog calls Bad Chemistry: The Character Elements of Breaking Bad features nine of the show’s most prominent characters, from high school chemistry teacher-turned-meth cook Walter White and his former student-turned-sidekick Jesse Pinkman to fast food chain owner and drug kingpin Gus Fring. The clever minds behind the diagrams have used the show’s thematic design choice of abbreviating words like chemical elements found in the periodic table to concoct their own skeletal models of each person’s chemical makeup. Like a bunch of Heisenbergs, each chart the blog produced is a unique “Blue Sky” that reflects character virtues and flaws, accompanied by a quote and a few significant icons.

For true fans of the show, every minute “element” in each diagram is sure to spark a memory of that character’s narrative and personal journey. While some visual symbols like the scales of justice seem an obvious fit for Saul Goodman (solely because he’s technically a lawyer), the fly in Walter’s structural formula is a nod to a notable episode titled Fly, which symbolizes the loss of control in Walter’s life as his cancer is in remission yet he continues to cook meth. The flower in his frame is also a reminder of the poisonous “Lily of the Valley” plant that reflects one of the many shifts in Walter’s moral compass.

Rick Ross On The Ball Court.


There are certain things that just appeal to my sense of humor, even though these thing’s aren’t necessarily meant to be funny.  And a basketball game with Rick Ross is just hilarious to me.

Samsung ES9000 75-inch Smart TV.


Samsung has just launched its 75-inch (189-cm) ES9000 OLED TV in South Korea with a whopping price of 19.8 Million Won ($17,450). It is the world’s largest super OLED TV and sports a gorgeous 7.9mm-thick bezel, while its 1GHz dual-core processor allows it to run multiple Smart TV application simultaneously. The Samsung ES9000 features what the company calls a “Diamond Black Panel” which it claims improves the clearness, contrast and brightness of the display. “The ES900 is the world’s largest super OLED TV to be produced from a single pane of glass and showcases the ultimate in picture quality by featuring unmatched vivid and true-to-life picture quality in both 2D and 3D,” Samsung said in a press release. In comparison to even the best LED TVs, it offers virtually unlimited contrast ratios and near perfect color accuracy through several technological advancements. In addition to Samsung’s new 1GHz dual-core chipset, the ES9000 also introduces voice control, facial recognition, as well as an intuitive new gesture control user-interface.

Emirates Unveils The World’s Largest In-Flight Screens.


Emirates has unveiled the world’s widest seat-back television screens, to be installed on its new aircraft.  The new 12.1-inch screen is the largest economy class seatback system in the world, Emirates says, complete with high-definition displays — another first for the Dubai-based carrier.  New screens are also being installed in premium classes, Emirates said May 31, including a 27-inch widescreen in First Class and 20-inch screen in Business Class.  Emirates, which is competing with rival Etihad to build a hub-based model from its location in the Arabian Gulf, has long been recognized for the money it pours into in-flight entertainment, winning world’s best entertainment from airline ratings website Skytrax for the last seven years.

The new upgrade, due to be installed on all new Boeing 777s in the fleet and on the carrier’s A380 aircraft (pictured below) from next year, is likely to further consolidate this position.  A new computer system, developed by Emirates and Panasonic, will drive the screens, offering over 300 movies, thousands of music tracks and television programs.  The new system has been based on a consumer tablet, Emirates says, with the aim of allowing passengers to ‘swipe’ and ‘scroll’ to access functionality and communications features such as SMS and email access.  A tie-up with skating brand Quiksilver will also see new entertainment offered for children, including a branded travel journal, wallet and playing cards.

Rick Ross & Reebok.


Back in my day, companies like Gatorade, Wheaties, Nike, and Reebok used athletes to get the point across that their brand was aimed at the sports players.  I’m a Ricky Rosay fan, don’t get me wrong, but he’s so big, when he turns in a circle, people throw him a welcome back party.  He isn’t exactly the perfect picture of athleticism.  However, although Reebok is taking the a different road with who sports their brand, Rick Ross’s international recognition will do nothing but good things for their name.  Check out the makings of the first collaboration between Rick Ross and Reebok.

NBA 2K11 TV Spot.


The new commercial for the video game NBA 2K12 isn’t exactly basketball discourse at its finest, but it’s guaranteed to get people talking. The premise: Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan, the rapper Drake, and fans of the Portland Trail Blazers, Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks debate which NBA team was the greatest of all time.  In case you were wondering, Jordan names the 1996 Bulls as the greatest team ever. That year, the Bulls went 72-10 in the regular season, setting an NBA record for wins, and 15-3 in the postseason, defeating the Seattle SuperSonics in six games to win the title. Jordan averaged 30.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 2.2 steals and shot 49.5% from the field on his way to his fourth ring.

Quote Of The Day: Michael  Jordan: “I let my ring do my talking.”

Jay-Z On The Battlefield.


Eminem has been known to support some of his favorite games by donating some of his music to the soundtrack (Call Of Duty/DJ Hero) but Mr. Shady isn’t the only one.  If your familiar with DJ Hero, you know that Eminem teamed up with Jay-Z to add some tracks exclusive to the deluxe edition, but this time around, Jay-Z is catching some attention with a remix of 99 Problems that’s being featured in the new Battlefield 3 TV spot.  Check the method below.

Anna Rincon vs. Vanna Black.


So, once again the time has come when I need the public’s personal opinion. After a conversation between a staff-member and I about the two lovely women below, I decided to put up another poll and ask who you think is hotter

.

 

Anna Rincon has proven to be a triple threat in mainstream media; demonstrating capabilities of excelling with talent in Film as an Actress, A video Model and having the grace and looks to cover magazines as well as showing off her dance moves. Her nationality being Mexican- American gives her the opportunity to work in both English and Spanish market. Being Beautiful and Talented defines her in the category to be one of the most wanted Video/Model Vixen in the Music industry- she has worked with major artists like Colby O Donis, International artist Akon, R&B megastar Usher and Latin Urban Artist Daddy Yankee. Along with video modeling, she has graced magazine covers of Source and Low Rider Magazines, as well as going international for centerfolds all over Latin America. Anna Rincon’s diverse talent has proven to be a natural when it comes to films and television media. She has previously worked on MTV, Si Tv and Telemundo to host and has been invited for numerous guest appearances. Although Anna is always busy, she finds time to unwind and hopes to open her dance studio and agency one day.

The incredible rapper/model is of African-American, French, Irish, Dutch, and Cherokee heritage, giving her an exotic and stunning appearance that is all her own. She was born and raised in the corrupted slums of West Philadelphia.  Vanna began rapping during her freshman year in high school. “I was always a good writer and always loved rap and one night I was just sitting around and started writing,” she recalls. “I took it to school the next day and let the boys hear it and they loved it. I kept doing it and after a while it turned into a passion.”  She first considered modeling a year later when a photographer approached her and offered to take some photos of her. A few short years later Vanna found her career beginning to take off. Thus far, her stint in modeling has been a successful one. Vanna has appeared in the pages of several top urban magazines as well as in numerous product advertisements, music videos, and calendars. Her resume continues to grow.

If You Grew Up In The 90’s, You NEED To See This.


I’ve said many times before that I spent the majority of my growing up in the 90’s.  Video games, movies, and television shows were all the building blocks of the person I am today (just like Bob Marley had an influence on my parents).  I came across a video recently that pretty much sums up everything I knew and loved as a kid growing up in the 90’s.  And if you had access to media, you know most of it too.  Check the method.

Billboard reports that rapper-producer Pharrell Williams of N.E.R.D. and The Neptunes fame will serve as creative director for the Karmaloop TV, which is the network scheduled to launch later this year.

It’s essentially programming for the digital, plugged in generation.

3D TV Without Those “Stylish” Glasses


Japanese electronics giant Toshiba plans to market the world’s first 3D television that does not need special glasses later this year, a report said on Tuesday.  Toshiba will unveil three models of the television, which will cost several thousand dollars, before Christmas, the Yomiuri Shimbun said.  The company has developed a new system that emits a number of rays of light with various angles from the screen so that viewers can see stereoscopic images without glasses, the daily said.

“People can enjoy images in three dimensions from various positions and suffer less stress,” it said.  Japan’s major electronics makers launched 3D television this year, but sales have not been as strong as expected while many customers have complained of being irritated by the glasses.
