This past weekend, the Earth Station One crew had a grand ol’ time at the TimeGate convention in Atlanta, GA! Mike, Mike, and ESW co-host Phantom Troublemaker were featured panelists on a variety of topics and even got the chance to sit down for a few minutes with Caitlin Blackwood (Amelia Pond on Doctor Who). We also visited with Friends of the Station new and old and we thank all those who helped make the weekend so enjoyable! Meanwhile, Bobby Nash travelled to Birmingham, AL and he shares his great memories of the debut of the Alabama Phoenix Festival.

If the Internet was Rome, and if Photoshop artists were gladiators, and if this was a better analogy, Worth1000 would be the coliseum. More accurately Worth1000 is an on-line collection of daily contests sorted into categories of theme and skill level. The result is a steady stream of amazingly manipulated images. You may have seen these images on the web-at-large and been taken in by the pixels. Worth1000 has inadvertently triggered hoaxes, celebrity amusement (or abusement) and even major media scandals. (Seriously, the Pentagon once issued a statement distancing itself from Worth1000 images). Needless to say, use this site for entertainment purposes only. Continue reading

The final arc of The Third Doctor is bittersweet as we say “Goodbye” to Jon Pertwee, witness performances from gone-too-soon Nicolas Courtney and Elisabeth Sladen, and control our arachnophobia as we encounter the sisters of Metebelis Three. But all is made right by one of the best multi-vehicle chase scenes ever filmed! Mike, Mike, and Dave are once again joined by ESO co-host Bobby Nash to review Planet of the Spiders. Continue reading

Box Office Buzz
The movie “Battleship” has taken quite a bit of flak in the months leading up to its release based on the fact it’s a film inspired by a board game. There’s been jokes about what phrases from the game might end up as dialogue in the film (such as, “You sunk my battleship!”) and about what other board game-to-film projects we’ll be seeing in the future (coming next summer to a theater near you, a film about a family of explorers who find themselves trapped in a deadly jungle and facing down the most frightening terror they’ve ever experienced: a pack of hungry, hungry hippos …).
So, despite some of the initial skepticism from filmgoers and critics, is the final movie based on Hasbro’s classic naval combat game a “hit” or a “miss”? It has the same kind of feel as Michael Bay’s “Transformers” films, except with a naval twist — and whether that’s a good thing or not depends a lot on how you feel about the “Transformers” movies.

Even before the Harry Potter novels were finished, J. K. Rowling was teasing us with the idea of an encyclopedia detailing all the magical ins and outs of the Wizarding World. She always said the book would take a while, but now it seems she could be abandoning the idea entirely. Why?
Last we heard about the encyclopedia, it was one of those things Rowling would get done somewhere down the road, with all the proceeds going to charity. But a new update to the FAQ section on Rowling’s official site seems to put those plans in serious jeopardy.
