I kind of have a problem when it comes to my cell phones. Over time, I make and collect such a huge amount of ringtones that I can never settle on a single one for any long period of time. The longest I’ve ever had a ringtone has been for the last month. The song? The 90’s X-Men animated series theme. Everyone knows it, everyone loves it, and I find it hard to change.

I’ve also collected a few different text message/email alerts, ranging from video games to TV show sound bites. I’ve uploaded my favorites of all, the ones I use more often than the others. These are in no way a comprehensive Best of the Best Geeky Ringtones; they just happened to be my favorite geeky ringtones.

We’ve all heard it said, so many times now that it’s practically a cliche in its own right: Hollywood is out of ideas.

It seems like nothing being made these days is original; it’s just a steady stream of adaptations, homages, sequels (I’m looking at you, Tron) and remakes. And it’s that last category that seems to be growing increasingly out of hand. The Powers That Get Things Made are interested in what sells, so in a painfully transparent attempt to capitalize on what’s already proven successful, they no longer simply turn back to the classics to devise a formula: they just remake them. It worked the first time, so why not the second time?

Well, because a movie’s more than a storyline that sells tickets and the fact that an audience liked it the first time isn’t a guarantee they’ll enjoy it on the second take. If anything, people seem less inclined to see these remakes than other movies. They already saw it done right once — why see it butchered by a new set of actors and updates? Take a look at a few of projects currently made or in the works:

Thursday, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences released the nominations for the 61st annual Emmy awards. And like a lot of people, I’m very dissatisfied with what the Academy has chosen to honor this year.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m super excited that Jim Parsons got a nod, Justin Timberlake was recognized for his brilliant work on Saturday Night Live, and that Doctor Horrible’s Sing Along Blog is being seen for the revolutionary piece of media that it is. But for the fourth and final time, one of the best television shows in the past ten years has been snubbed again.
