Movie Night: 300



So i guess its time to break out the big guns and finaly throw this down.
300 dosent need any introduction but none the less i shall endevor to do so and provide links to Wikipedia so you have a clue what im talking about.

300 is the film adaptation of the graphic novel 300 by Frank Miller, and is a fictionalized retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae. The film is directed by Zack Snyder with Frank Miller attached as an executive producer and consultant, and was shot mostly with bluescreen to duplicate the imagery of the original comic book.

Spartan King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fight to the last man against Persian King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his army of over one million soldiers, while in Sparta, Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) attempts to rally support for her husband. The story is framed by a voice-over narrative by the Spartan soldier Dilios (David Wenham). Through this narrative technique, various fantastical creatures are introduced, placing 300 within the genre of historical fantasy.

As always links are time limited and can and will be removed if any complaint is noted (as per my standard policy for all films on AriesAntics) so use them while you can!

now break out the popcorn and i'll see you tomorrow!

Daily Blogg: Mowar fanz?


So I've been looking for a reasonably cheap case mod that will help keep my poor little computer's processor nice and cool.

THIS (see pic) is the answer, well this combined with a case with more holes in it than Swiss cheese (painted yellow of coarse) and with the fans wired up to there own power source THE HUMMING CHEESETM for the fans works so i can access the internal should be the most efficiently cooled computer i will ever build. I swear it WILL look better when i put the cover on it, i just need to make it big enough to fit over the fans and cut the vent holes over the fan locations and put the mesh on to stop dust and crap getting in and make shure the rising swing hinge component has enough free space so I can open the side panel to swap out parts as and when its needed.

Sadly its probably also going to be the biggest and loudest too, but this is the price we pay for functionality. None the less it seems i have turned my Comp into one massive heat sink. If everything go's to plan it should be finished some time this weekend and the new case should be finished around monday or tuesday next week. None the less...

How to: Superior Party Lights!


How To Make An Amazing Glowing Ice Bulb - The funniest videos are a click away

OK this is just a very quick How To, and is admittedly a little complex but considering its the first new How To since my comp decided to kick me in the scrotum I'm kinda proud of it.

Remember folks if your gonna give this a shot take into account that water and electricity are not friends with you and do not like it when they are forced to mix so be careful.

DO NOT EVER USE MAINS LEVEL POWER WITH THIS PROJECT, USE BATTERIES ONLY AND DONT FORGET TO WATERPROOF ALL YOUR CONNECTIONS!


Don't worry there will be a better How To next week.


For Your Information:
LED's, balloons and insulated wire will cost you about $2 total and you can wire up about 4 to a pair of AA batterys. They should last about 4-6 hours and they do a fantastic job of cooling your beer.

Daily Blogg: Blue smoke is a BAD thing?


Any way you look at it my laptop is pretty much dead, you can usually tell by the oh so pretty puffs of blue smoke wheezing from its poor cooling ports and the sound of a thousand tiny deaths as each and every partition in your hard drive decomplies.

Oh well, shit happens

So today's post is done using my all new and improved BOX'o'CRAPTM and things are going depressingly slowly. But at least thanks to a RAM injection and a little but of messing about with the processor i was (for the first time in almost a week) able to get my World of Warcrack back.

I am presently attempting to get some of the slightly more unusual programmes like my voice recorder and DivX player on this damn thing while i casually make myself an batch of pancakes on my oh so very hot processor.

oh well wish me luck! peace!
