The Best Shia LaBeouf Just Do It VideosJune 6, 2015
So I, like you, saw the amazing Shia LaBeouf delivers the most intense motivational speech of all-time video and couldn’t stop laughing at LeBeouf’s sheer intensity. The Just Do It video is part of a collaboration with students from Central Saint Martins, one of the UK’s leading arts universities. The best part however, is that it was filmed in front of a green screen, allowing the internet to digitally place Shia into other places and situations. The following are some of the best “Just Do It” motivation videos I’ve found.
Why You Should Be Excited for MTV’s The Shannara ChroniclesJune 5, 2015
I’ve been a HUGE fan of Terry Brooks’ Shannara series ever since grade 9. A friend lent me his copy of First King of Shannara and I’ve been an avid reader of the series ever since. With the massive success of HBO’s Game of Thrones, MTV decided they wanted a piece of that fantasy pie and greenlit The Shannara Chronicles, a fantasy series based on Brooks’ The Elfstones of Shannara.
MSN Messenger | Nostalgic MemoriesJune 3, 2015
I grew up in the 90’s and was a daily user of MSN Messenger. I recently changed my phone’s notification to the sound MSN Messenger made when you got a new IM. The sound alone hurled me back to a simpler time. A time when Napster reigned (and mistitled songs were a real problem) and boy bands roamed the earth.

Video Games as Art: Visually Stunning Video GamesMay 21, 2015
Almost every gamer knows that video games can be the best medium for story telling, even better than movies or books. Video games can suck you into it’s story like a good novel, while still being a visual medium like movies and T.V. What separates games from their elder mediums is the level of control that a user has over their digital world, bending the game’s characters to their will.
It is my firm belief that a major contributor to a game’s success is how the game artists depict the world within their game. The environment, visual style, and music are all vastly influential and are what skyrocket some games into the realm of pure art.

So I just finished re-watching every episode of friends for what must be the nth time, and I just cannot get over how many amazing cameos and guest appearances there were. There were so many in fact, that this list is easily twice as long as originally intended, and I’m sure I’m still missing plenty!
So here are my favourite Friends cameos.
The Most Underrated Movies of All Time | PRT 2May 5, 2014
I wrote an article of similar name and topic back in 2011, but a lot has happened since then in the world of movies. We’ve had some amazing blockbusters (The Avengers (2012)) and some stinkers too (The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)), but as always, there are some great films that seem to have slipped through the cracks. The following list contains more films (and some repeats from my previous article) that I feel have either skipped deserved critical acclaim, or escaped popular consciousness.

So to get a full picture you have to read a lot of very technical reports from the network security community. My understanding of the attack comes from reading (probably way too many) technical reports about it. I’ll try and give the most readable sources here.
