Back in July 2007, I had posted a viral video of 1500 prison inmates in the Philippines, practicing the dance moves to Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming X-Files 2 movie was shown at Wondercon. Judging by the reaction of the crowd in this low-quality, bootleg clip, it’s obvious that Dana Scully (the gorgeous Gillian Andersen) & Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) will always have a special place in popular culture.

Unfortunately, I’m not sure if any X-Files movie will ever be as successful as the original television series. The 1998 movie did not exactly set movie screens on fire. Forget about finding Aliens, I have two questions for you people. Will the two leads kiss in this movie ? And even if they do, do we really care ?

This mean-looking, ‘prehistoric’ mouse is from Secret Design, a computer modding and design firm based in Germany.

More great stuff from Sillof’s workshop. This time it’s a wicked steampunk version of Marvel Comics superhero Iron Man.

Tony Stark - Iron Man

Iron Man 1

Iron Man Steampunk    

In this re-imagining of the superhero, Tony Stark is a 19th century inventor and capitalist. Kidnapped for ransom, he escapes captivity using the first version of the suit. He later improves upon the idea, and builds a steam powered version.

This guy sure has some talent.

As some of you may know already, I am a fan of high speed photography. High speed cameras can capture fast moving phenomena at a minimum rate of 128 frames per second, with some incredible results.

The following video clip showcases the capabilities of a high speed camera that can shoot frames 80x slower than other cameras.

Another crazy video mashup. This time it’s classic cinema scenes voiced by the cast of Nickelodeon‘s Spongebob Squarepants .

They did not spare anyone, not ever poor Marlon Brando’s Vito Corleone in The Godfather.

I found free designs for 100 free paper models and toys at Creativecloseup.com. You can print the designs using a color printer and then assemble them. My favorite is the ‘Maria’ model from Metropolis, and I would "love" to make a life-sized one.  Just thought other readers of JazJaz might enjoy this.
