Imagine ... the next great competitive sport: Jelly Tennis. Yes, you read that right.

The Slo Mo Guys said that they were inspired to perform their latest experiment by a recent image on the website Reddit, and wanted to see how far they could take the idea. more >>
Famed radio host, Janet Parshall, aired a program in 2013 about new movie sensations that are depicting ungodly themes, such as Twilight and others. Her guest made the point that the church is losing the power of discernment. I couldn't agree more.
Before sending this article to print, I asked my mother for feedback and perspective from an earlier generation. She said, "The older generation has seen the slow digression from standards of excellence in movie making to movies that distort and destroy, and are far removed from themes of integrity. Fifty years ago these types of programs were recognized as wrong. Although we might watch them, few, if any, would dare justify them."
The unavoidable truth is that we are becoming desensitized. The Holy Spirit no longer fills our hearts with a passion for purity and holiness. As a result, there is a general lack of conviction. If this article upsets, that's often a good indication that change may need to take place. more >>

Ridley Scott is back to directing science fiction films and his upcoming project, which is the sequel to "Prometheus," is reported to start filming in January 2016 according to a report in IGN. The upcoming film, which Scott recently revealed to be titled as "Alien: Paradise Lost," will be set after the events of Prometheus, which is called a "spiritual prequel" of the 1979 film "Alien."
According to a post on Scified, Scott said during an interview with news.au.com that they may start filming in Australia in January 2016, indicating how much he is doing in preparation for production. He said, "As we speak I'm literally drawing: I'm doing storyboards for the film in January. I'm one of those people who can multitask — I'm drawing the bridge of the next spaceship. I do the sketches and then I bring in the chaps to make it. It almost becomes industrial design, which these things ought to be because you need that strong sense of reality (on set). When you do these films that are so big, the manner of designing them is enormous."
Scott has been dropping hints about the movie's plot in various venues. One such hint, according to another post on Scified, is that Elizabeth Shaw and the android David will find themselves going to the home world of the Engineer. As they explore the world in search for answers to the greatest mysteries of mankind, they also discover a truth that can lead to the destruction of humankind. more >>
