Ace video mash-em-up overlord Garrison Dean has blessed us with an Andrew WK-sound tracked super cut of “Expendables 2” trailers – and it cheered me up no end.

There’s no way that the actual movie can live up to that, is there?
Leave it to our tiny planet’s most fervent defender to get in some Olympics action.
Yep, TOTALLY getting why he’s a nerdy lust object from that picture…
Not content with being a kooky and suave master of awesome, time-tripping whimsy, current Doctor Who Matt Smith is going to be running with the Olympic torch in Cardiff on Saturday 26th May.
And with a gait as astonishing as Matt’s undoubtedly is, who can blame the organisers for scoring some valuable publicity points by enlisting a celebrity who might actually do a better job at this athletics lark than some of the nominal pros.
If the London 2012 Olympics organisers could somehow be convinced to build a corridor around the 100 metres track this summer, my money would be on the lanky dude with the bow tie winning that event convincingly.
If you’re keeping track of these things – and there’s no good reason on Terra that you should be – I’ve finally finished ploughing through the first instalment of German fantasy writer Markus Heitz‘s “The Dwarves” series. 730 pages down, only around a couple of thousand more to go. Yay for post-Tolkien endurance!
“Blood of Elves” – by Andrzej Sapkowski – it’s way nerdy. Realize.
I’m now waiting for the second chunky volume in Heitz’s series to arrive and so have turned my attentions to another European fantasy novel – Andrzej Sapkowski‘s “Blood of Elves“ – with a collected volume of Stan Nicholls‘ “Orcs“ also lined up and ready to go.
Harold Ramis’ clever cloning comedy, “Multiplicity”
Increasingly, I find myself believing that Harold Ramis‘ clone comedy “Multiplicity“ had kind of the right idea when it comes to apportioning time and effort to various tasks – if only I had a Fluffrick clone to go out and do the less than exciting work stuff and leave me the time that I need to keep up with my reading.
Whatever you’re reading this weekend, be sure to enjoy it and why not share a brief review/blog link in the comments?
