Cool Shit 11/15

How to win on The Price is Right. Especially if you're a math teacher.

Area 51: Declassified! At least declassified as much as they want you to believe.

Trailer for Noah...Oh boy. Not sure how to go with this one. After reports that Aronofsky and the studio were bickering over the final cut of the movie, I was curious how this was going to turn out. And now that we've got a trailer - it feels both like disaster porn mixed with some unbelievably cheesy moments (the snake scene specifically). I realize it's not fair to a movie to judge it based on the trailer, but I'm just not sure this one is going to be all that good. Also working against it? We kinda already know what happens. So any tension with the water and the ark...

Not enough people know the story about the Kashmere Stage Band, arguably the tightest funk group from the 60s and 70s. Mostly because it was a high school group! But now a documentary on the whole thing and how it went down is coming out, called ThunderSoul. Try not to get up and dance. I dare you.

And here's a song for you to get a taste of what you've been missing all these years...

There are some weird cookbooks out there.

It's never too early to start thinking about end of year lists. Well, I guess technically there is a time that's too early, specifically early in the year before stuff is released, but you get the idea. Here's a list of the best inventions of the year, ranging from a 3-d pen to a spaceship!
