Movie Trailer Of The Day: Prometheus

Sort of an Alien prequel, sort of not. Wikipedia explains:

"Prometheus is an upcoming science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron. The plot follows the crew of the spaceship Prometheus in the year 2085, as they explore an advanced alien civilization in search of the origins of humanity.

Conceived as a prequel to Scott's 1979 science fiction horror film Alien, rewrites of Spaihts's script by Lindelof developed a separate story that precedes the events of Alien, but which is not directly connected to the films in the Alien franchise. According to Scott, though the film shares 'strands of Alien's DNA, so to speak,' and takes place in the same universe, Prometheus will explore its own mythology and ideas.

Principal photography began in March 2011, with filming taking place in Canada, England, Iceland, and Spain. Prometheus is scheduled for release between May 30 and June 8, 2012 in various territories through 20th Century Fox."

Whatever it is, it looks intense. I'm sure Pat Collins will love it.

Study Finds Newborn Infants Can Tell If Parents Are Losers

March 21, 2012

CHICAGO—A study published this week in the journal Pediatrics found that, within seconds of their birth, babies have the ability to sense whether their parents are losers.

"From the moment they open their eyes, newborns can tell if their mother had no other options and was forced to settle for their father, or if their father is a sad sack who has no friends and gets drunk on a single glass of chardonnay," said researcher Dr. Stuart Lindstrom, explaining that despite their blurry vision, infants can still identify basic loser body types, and have specialized olfactory receptors allowing them to detect the odor of failure.

"In fact, we've determined that as early as the second trimester, a fetus picks up on the income and social standing of its mother via the umbilical cord."

The study also concluded that the screams of newborns stem from the sudden realization they will be stuck with their loser parents for at least 18 years.

Meme Of The Day: Joseph Ducreux/Archaic Rap Guy

From KnowYourMeme:

"Joseph Ducreux (1735–1802) is an eighteenth century French artist known for his unorthodox style of portrait paintings. On the interweb, his eccentric self-portrait has inspired a series of exploitable macros, featuring archaic reinterpretation of popular rap lyrics superimposed over the artwork. This highly verbose joke provides a satisfying challenge of 'decoding' the corrupted lyrics back into to the original verses. Variations of the meme include verbose translations of popular web phrases such as 'Come at me, bro' and 'All your base are belong to me'."
