Back when we were doing the Nerd Lunch Reboot Challenge, I briefly toyed with the idea of making Space Ghost one of my reboot entries. I actually wrote some Space Ghost spec scripts years ago.

Fill-in Atomic Geek Mark Dury is a man who inspires self-loathing in me. I have an on-again/off-again relationship with video production, so seeing what Mr. Dury does just makes me want to abandon it all.He posted a funny little video this morning that's a re-edit of the end of Star Wars. It's very impressive how [...]
