Fan theories to twist all.

The next list of videos includes movies as The Matrix, Star Trek, Lord of The Rings and TV series as the X-Files. (Be aware, the one from Lord of The Rings really got me when I first found it a few months ago).

A few months back, we were commenting about the comic strip about Chief O’Brien and how good it was

TNG: Chief O’Brien

Now, prepare yourselves for the release of the Chief O’Brien book.

The Brick in the Sky is supporting it and will get a free copy.

Top 10 memes

At the moment I’m reading the part of the “Selfish gene” where Richard Dawkins speaks about memes as the new replicators, so this is quite convenient. Say hello to Top10Memes

I really enjoy the Portal one

but what really surprised me is the one about Futurama (I love the series).

Something to improve your background on comics…

I don’t put too much about The Simpsons in this blog, but they had an incredible impact in our world, so they deserve to be here.

Hey! it will not be complete without Zelda

and of course Dragon Ball

Terrahawks’ land train: Overlander

Early this morning I was procrastinating on the Dark Roasted Blend when land trains appear!

You know I love big machines, and specially land trains. It makes me dream about planetary colonization, hard environments, and of course, post apocalyptic worlds like the one described by the Amtrak Wars saga.

This time, among all the models, I like this one.

It is a replica made by expert model builder David Sisson (visit his webpage to see other works and conventions he has attended to or plans to go).

Honestly, I never heard of this vehicle, it is called Overlander and it seems it belongs to a science-fiction series called Terrahawks (wiki and official webpage).

Terrahawks is a 80’s TV series created by Gerry Anderson & Christopher Burr. The main plot is set in the year 2020, after an alien force has destroyed NASA’s Mars base and Earth is under threat. The Terrahawks organisation, is set up to defend the planet from their secret base in South America. In order to achieve victory they develop sophisticated weapons to fight back the alien forces.

The series is no longer on air, but you can buy it on amazon

and this how it looks like.

Specially, this is how the Overlander looks like.

Amazing. I wish there is a computer game just for driving the Overlander.
