Who could use a better alien invasion right about now? And how about a little off-topic conversation to start the weekend right? That's why we have these posts, folks.

While shit blowin' up in Battle: Los Angeles certainly looks alright, I'll have to agree with my colleague Owen Good who believes that "Nothing can prepare you..." should be struck from the pitch of future disaster movies. We've actually been prepared quite well, thanks to Armageddon, Deep Impact, Cloverfield, War of the Words, etc. But hey, those 'splosions do look good.

Prepare yourself for a little conversation by reading and watching these various internet items of interest.
