“Tron Legacy” Exclusive

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Two weeks ago, at the 2009 Comic-Con and Nerd Breeding Festival in San Diego CA, new glimpses of the upcoming sequel to the 1982 film “Tron” were unveiled to a crowd ecstatically choking on their retainers. The new film, to be released in 2010, will be called “Tron Legacy” and will star Jeff Bridges (Flynn) and Bruce Boxleitner (Tron) from the original film.

From our secret insider source and at a considerable cost ($50.00), we at Blogadilla are proud to present to you a few exclusive production photos from the upcoming film (below).

Jupiter: Broken

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009


Last Monday morning (July 20th, sometime between 3:00-9:00AM Pacific Time), something very large smacked into the southern hemisphere of Jupiter, leaving a dark “scar” in its outer atmosphere larger than Earth’s Pacific Ocean. The unknown and unseen object that pummeled Jupiter was likely a comet or an asteroid.

A few days ago, Dr. Bill “the Coz” Cosby turned 72 years old.
Bill brought us Jell-O pudding pops, Fat Albert, Cosby sweaters, and a higher standard of fatherhood across the nation.


Did any of us get him anything for his birthday or did we all just sign the card?

Andrew Salomone made a portrait of Bill Cosby out of Jell-O shots.
