Dragon Tattoo Soundtrack

Take a swing over to Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross’s website for their soundtrack for the upcoming American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie. There you will find a free download of a 6-track sample.

You can also pre-order the album, which includes the awesome re-make of Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song by Karen O & Trent Reznor. This track is already available for purchase on iTunes. Check it out!

While I wasn’t a fan of the trilogy as a whole, I loved the first novel, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I also very much liked the first set of films for the books, made in Sweden and starring Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander. Usually best-selling books are ruined once Hollywood gets ahold of them, but this time it looks like they may have done it justice…at least in the 3 minutes of the film seen in the trailer. I’m actually looking forward to this film’s release and seeing if the movie as a whole holds true to this.


WTF is a Brinicle?

Here’s the YouTube description for the video you are about to watch (and you have to watch it…it’s short and extremely cool!).

New video has been released that shows the formation of a brinicle on the ocean floor. Essentially an underwater icicle, the brinicle, or “finger of death,” freezes everything in its path.

Hugh Miller and Doug Anderson filmed the stunning time-lapse clip… which is … the first of its kind. Shot for the BBC’s Frozen Planet, the clip was recorded using a special time-lapse camera that caught the brinicle’s entire formation process.

What’s really going on here is the freezing of warmer waters as sub-zero brine slowly sinks to the ocean floor.


If you are a starfish lover, look away now!

Otherwise, proceed and enjoy! ☻
