Mom sent me this picture the other day, taken in Kharkov, Ukraine, my home city.
My question is… wtf? I'm assuming the truck started where the road was – what kind of speeds were involved here? Those trains usually go at speeds around 15-25mph… No word on the injuries.

Crash is one of the new shows I’m into and Panic is one of the most likeable and original characters on the show. I really think he’s going to be back after this show – it’s his breakthrough performance.
So, in, I think, episode 4 Panic (Jocko’s character) goes to the studio and raps for the first time. What comes out is quite amazing, I recommend you watch that episode for a more complete experience. Otherwise, proceed to the MP3 that I got directly off Jocko’s myspace page.
You can play it right on this page (Edit: download link removed, per Jocko's request in the comments) or support Jocko by buying his album off Amazon for only $0.99 …

There are some shows on TV that make me vomit (hint: most, especially on MTV). Others don’t spark any interest at all. But there are select few that are anywhere from great to outstanding. I’m here to help you sort through all the bullshit.
Here is my list (these shows are relatively new, I didn’t want to include classics, like Seinfeld):
1. The Unit. Dennis Haysbert (that’s president Palmer from 24) and his crew make The Unit simply amazing. Each episode offers a new unique captivating mission, while sticking to the main plot. Battle action and The Unit’s family lives are mixed together perfectly. I recommend watching from season 1. A+.
2. How I Met Your Mother. Best …

The next Terminator is coming. Who's excited?
Here's the plot: After the drastic effects of Terminator 3, the story continues as John Connor and soon to be wife Kate Brewster realize they must create a resistance organization with Earth's remaining survivors against the army of robots slowly being built up by Skynet. As they are building this resistance, one survivor happens to be a traitor in disguise, and has a secret that nobody would ever come to suspect.
The good news is that the movie is now in pre-production, the script is done, and shooting should begin in 2008. Terminator 4 will come out in June 2009 if everything goes as planned.
The bad news is that Arnold will not …

The saddest part of growing up for me is probably the realization that games don't entertain me nowadays as much as they used to. OK, maybe not the saddest, but it's up there along with having to "work", not being able to "get trashed like there's no tomorrow", and behaving like "an adult".
But where was I? Oh yeah. Even though graphics and realism improve every year, my desire to play anything goes down at the same rate. Valve seemed to know this quite well, so it promised to do everything in its power to satisfy me.
Enter the long awaited Portal. Combine the Halflife 2 engine with the power of a portal gun and brain busting riddles, add …
If you haven't seen The Bourne Ultimatum yet, go see it. It's a great finale of the Bourne series. Matt Damon really delivers. In fact, I'm starting to feel obsessed with this movie.
Here's the clip of a shared scene between the 2 movies (this one is from The Bourne Supremacy). The song at the end is still breathtaking:

The Simpsons Movie hasn't even come out yet but already received a whopping 9.3/10 rating on imdb with 1652 votes. Is it really that good? I guess I'll definitely be finding out this weekend.
Edit: Apparently it's good. Really good. There are raving reviews all over the place. Currently 88% on Rotten Tomatoes, which can be considered a huge success. Count me in….
The day is finally here. Blizzard just officially announced Starcraft 2 at an official Korean event! As someone put it on digg, if you didn't know that you can simultaneously cream and shit your pants, you will now. Here are the first videos that surfaced on the web.
The actual gameplay demo narrated by Blizzard. IMO, this is the best and the most well put together demo I've ever seen:
And some more gameplay videos:

I went to see Borat with Milla, Greg, and his gf Marissa yesterday, and it completely blew away all expectations for a funny movie. I mean, I was already expecting funny jokes, having heard Borat crack them before, but not to THAT degree. All of the jokes, by the way, were original, I've never heard Borat use them before. The theaters were packed as all showings were sold out, and this only improved the experience: people were almost rolling on the floor beside me, screaming at the screen, choking on drinks.
I don't think I've ever laughed so hard that I started to gasp for air; the sounds that were coming out of me didn't resemble laughter anymore (for those …
Millions of viewers of NBC's Heroes know actor Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura, the bored young Japanese office worker who discovers he has the power to alter time and teleport. What they probably don't know is that he's been working behind the scenes for years as one of Industrial Light & Magic's top programmers.
In an ensemble cast that features solid acting all around, Oka steals the show every time he's on the screen. The show literally has his Hiro living out the exploits of his own comic book, 9th Wonders.
Since graduating from Brown University in 1997, Oka has worked on more
