Return of the Sirens

The new season of the Naptown Rollergirls roller derby is upon us. They've returned from nationals just in time for a bout against the Ohio Roller Girls. This one will be a treat for Star Wars fans too, the 501st Bloodfin Garrison will be making an appearance at the bout. I've seen them in the past, they spare no expense in the level of detail in their costumes. They make appearances at many local events, and this time they'll be appearing along with the roller girls. I've become a big fan of the NRG as has my buddy Ewzzy. Here's a video he took at Monumental Mayhem, the roller derby regional tournament hosted by the NRG:

I need to get me a season pass to the roller derby... you get your own backstage-passesque badge and NRG merch. Yes, please.

More Stop-Motion Videos

Here's some other really good stop-motion videos.

The first video from Counter 656 is a stop-motion homage to Final Fantasy VII

He's also done a few stop-motion fight sequences using Mobile Suit Gundam models.

I admire anybody with the attention to detail and skill to make something like this.

Community's not on the Midseason Schedule

That's what I said when I saw the news that Community was not on NBC's midseason schedule. Freshman comedy Whitney will be moving to Wednesday nights and 30 Rock will be taking Community's place, up against ratings juggernaut The Big Bang Theory. Instead of shifting Community's time slot to 9:30, Up All Night will be moving there after The Office. Does this announcement serve as a possible death-nail for one of the funniest shows on TV? There's no denying that Community pushes the comedy envelope with it's avant-garde style, is that the reason why it's not in the rotation? Or, is NBC just giving show runners the opportunity to come up with some new episodes?

This has happened in the past, Parks and Recreation was bumped from the Thursday night roster midseason after Outsourced got a full season order (even though it was never really funny.) Cancellation rumors where all over the place, but it wasn't cancelled. It has since been one of the funniest shows on NBC. I hope this isn't the end of Community, move it to another night or another timeslot, keep it away from The Big Bang Theory for starters. It has consistently been delivering some of the funniest and interesting material on television... Please don't cancel it... please.
