The Next Movie should be: 24

"24" deberia ser la proxima pelicula que hagan.  Como ya terminaron la serie, los creadores piensan enfocarse en hacer peliculas, y como termino la serie, creo que el personaje de Jack Bauer se merece mas historias... ya sean en el presente, pasado o futuro.

Para los que no saben la serie se trataba de un agente especial de anti terrorismo que usa de todas sus habilidades para evitar un atentado.  El truco de la serie es que todo pasaba en tiempo real, asi que por cada episodio (una hora) pasaba una hora en el dia.  Esto le daba urgencia a cada capitulo.

Por supuesto las peliculas no seria en ese formato, pero con los personajes ya establecidos las historias se podrian expandir a locales mas exoticos e internacionales.

Junot Diaz elected to the Pulitzer board

Congratulations once again to Dominican writer Junot Diaz.  This time for becoming the first latino elected to the Pulitzer board (the ones in charge of awarding the prizes).
Junot won a Pulitzer for his debut novel "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao".  I preach this book to everyone I meet (and tells me the love reading), for it's amazing prose and flow.
Back in college someone mentioned him to me and I went and found his first published book, "Drown" which is a collection of short stories that deal with life in the States and in the Dominican Republic.  It spoke to me, so I kept an eye out for his work.  Then he came out with Oscar Wao in 2008, which just floored me.  Like a Harry  Potter book I just couldn't put it down.

[Music Video]: Follow Me (Sweeden)

I dont' know if you're aware, but it's been said that the short film PIXELS is being developed into a feature film. I imagine it will be in 3D, since that's the rage nowadays. Since that's happening, I decided to show you this video I just found (I'm late to the party, the video it's been online since last October), to bring nostalgia to all those who played Nintendo and Super Nintendo. Prepare to blow on your cartridges
