Dexter Season 8 The Final Season The Final Symphony Dexter Showtime June 30th Season 8 Premiere

Dexter Morgan is one of our favorite television characters ever created.  Since the show first debuted in October 2006, Michael C. Hall and the rest of the ‘Miami Metro Police Team’ have been hunting down notorious serial killers & solving a lot of blood spatter puzzles along the way.  Whether you support or are against “Dexter’s Code’ … The votes are in:

Dexter and his crew have been nominated for 25 Emmy Awards, Winning 4 so far & Michael C. Hall has also taken home the prestigious Golden Globe Award.  Dexter continues to set records and we anticipate a spectacular finish to one of our favorite shows in a long time.

Dexter Season 8 Showtime's Original Series Season 8 Premier June 30th, 2013

Dexter Season 8 Finale June 30th On Showtime

As huge Dexter fans ourselves: We personally love the narrative style along with all the great Hollywood cameo’s of actors & actresses playing the part of Dexter’s Most Wanted Killers throughout any given season.  Showtime has announced their highly popular serial killer will be back in action on June 30th, 2013.  Season 8 is being dubbed as ‘The Final Symphony’ according to the Internet.

The Ultimate Question That No One Wants To Answer: Will Dexter Die?

It’s a shame that Dexter has to come to a close – But we are at the edge of our seats with excitement and have a ton of questions that need to be answered!  Will Dexter be able to find peace in time in order to save himself & everyone else around him?  Will his sister Deb. become a ‘Partner In Crime’ and help Dexter keep his secret safe forever?

Season 8 is going to be flat out nuts and we can not wait to see what the writers have in store for a finale.  Which was your favorite Dexter Season, Favorite ‘Good Guy’ Vs. ‘Bad-Guy’ Or Even Your Favorite: ‘Dexter Kill’ Of All Time?

We’d love to hear what you the fans think.  Let us know your opinions on the upcoming season & share any other fun Dexter stats, photos, creations or anything else you’d like to share with us.

DVD Tuesday Technology Update March 5th Jay and Silent Bob Go Down Under | Sim City Tomb Raider

In honor of  G4TV’s recent retirement of their once epic television programming with such shows as ‘Attack Of The Show’ and ‘X-Play’ – We will do our best to carry on the tradition of ‘DVD Tuesday’ as we highlight & go over some of our personal favorite video games and movies.

  1.  SimCity – For The PC | Rated E For Everyone
  2. Jay and Silent Bob Go Down Under – Now Available On Netflix
  3. Tomb Raider – For PC | Xbox 360 | PlayStation 3

Jay and Silent Bob Go Down Under On Netflix

We recently just watched the Jay and Silent Bob Go Down Under hour-long comedy special last night and we found it hilarious.  Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are two of our favorite  ‘Nerd Role Models’.  They are seated at a table for about an hour and do a great job telling stories, jokes and interacting with the Australian crowd!  Be sure to check out Kevin Smith and his best buddy Jason Mewes as they travel across the world making people laugh & more importantly keeping Jason clean 🙂

From the articles and light research we’ve done on SimCity – It sounds like the game will be very intricate and challenging & that’s the way we like it!  With upgraded controls, graphics, attention to detail, building options, town upgrades and the overall progression of PC games as a whole – We are definitely pumped and ready for SimCity to release in less that 24 hours.  Looking for more SimCity reviews, videos, screen shots & inside information?  Then you might want to head on over to one of our favorite websites for video games, movies, and general nerd news & updates:  SimCity For The PC Via IGN

As for Tomb Raider – See our #3 ranking above to follow through on some IGN.Com reviews.  Odds are if you liked the old Tomb Raider video games. This latest rendition of Tomb Raider will almost certainly meet & surpass most ‘gamers’ expectations. From the casual Lara Croft fan – All the way to the Tomb Raider / Lara Croft online creep & ‘Real life secret admirer’.

Everyone is busy these days we get it; But it’s okay, Go grab you and your significant other (21+) some cold ones and kick your feet up because  you’ve fucking earned it! Everyone has at least 1-2 hours every a week to check out some great new video games & movies.

Shark Tank Friday’s On ABC Helps To Inspire and Create Million Dollar Business Opportunities For New Entrepreneurs … Do You Have Any Ideas – Products – Inventions You’d Like To Share?

It’s 4:59 Friday evening and you smell blood! All you want to do is fly out of work a few minutes early to beat the traffic as you zoom home like Dale Earnhardt Jr. and reunite with your long-lost couch that you haven’t seen in over 12 hours!  For a lot of hard-working adults; The daily grind & weekly paycheck is enough to keep them satisfied and quench their thirst.  After all – “Thank Goodness It’s Friday”

Shark Tank On ABC Friday's

Shark Tank Friday On ABC

Then there are us Sharks, We tend to-day dream from time to time and think a bit more outside the box than most. After all  – “Thank Goodness It’s Shark-Tank Friday!”

We race home to sit down on our computers & check if that website domain name is still available or if we can trademark the ingenious Fortune 500 company/Brand name we created and took notes on during our lunch break.  The possibilities are infinite and our passion & hunger for major success is most definitely imminent.

We are big fans of everyone on the ‘ABC’s Shark-Tank Panel’ and have found a lot of their expert thoughts & opinions are pretty spot on and helpful!

If you’d like to learn more about the Sharks and some of their best quotes; Be sure to check out the ABC.Com Shark Tank Tips article online.

In today’s global economy the fierce competition requires most entrepreneurs to have more than just one pretty good idea or product to truly make a major dent in the business world and most importantly – Their bank accounts.  As Mark Cuban often paraphrases on the show … “You’ve proven you can handle imitators and have shown us overall sustainability for your product(s); A very good first step in creating a successful business”

You can also follow them on Twitter as they live ‘Tweet’ & interact with some of their most die-hard Shark-tank fans during the show.

We personally suggest following some of the companies that appear on Shark-tank as well. The companies represented are usually up & coming start-up businesses that will often offer great deals & discounts online in order to have a successful early launch & get their name heard & seen online as much as possible.  We don’t have the official statistics in front of us – But we’d guess it’s about a 25% chance that your pitch could reel in a real life Shark if you can get your business on the show!

If you could make a deal with ONLY (1) Shark – Who would it be?

Do you have a great idea or invention?  Let your voice be heard | E-mail us today !!

Face Off SyFy Season 4 Off To Hot Start – Who Will Win The Face Off Challenge In 2013?

One of our favorite new television shows that we highly recommend is Syfy Channel’s popular show ‘Face off’ – Which airs on Tuesday nights.  Next weeks episode “Bugging Out” looks amazing as usual and we are already counting down the days, hours and minutes until we get to tune in again live!

The contestants are highly trained hopefuls looking to make their wave in Hollywood and land a job in the special effects department.  They all feature a variety of creative and artistic skills in categories such as: Movie & t.v. character make-up & design, art & design, painting, sculpting; While they race against each other and the clock!SyFy Original Series Face Off

  • This week’s spotlight challenge had the contestants creating a mega monster requiring them to — “Create a character that had to be a giant in size with two heads. “
  • Aside from one or two highly questions decisions and messed-up looking monsters – We were blown away with some of the contestants creations and ability to create characters featuring thoughts and ideas we’ve never seen.

Our personal favorite you can find here: Eric & Kris SyFy Face Off Giant.  We are rooting for our home town contest Anthony from Chicago.If you’d like to catch up on some recent episodes from this season be sure to head on over to check it out!

Face off is close to an hour in length and often features some pretty cool guest judges as well. Overall we give a solid 8.5/10 and definitely worth the watch.  They have all the seasons available online and some on demand cable if you’d like to start watching from the beginning.
