Now firstly BE WARNED, the above 2 minutes and 41 seconds will probably scare the sh*t out of you. Having said that you’re probably thinking “Well I don’t wanna miss this!” and so will give it a watch.
Lights Out is a short horror film that follows a woman readying herself for bed, only to find that something may be lurking in the shadows. At just under three minutes, this short video has made even more afraid of the dark that I already was..
Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman “was found dead in his bathroom of an apparent drug overdose” in his New York City home, a New York Police Department official said. He was 46.
An official cause of death has not been confirmed by NYC’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Previously, Hoffman won Best Actor at the 78th Academy Awards in 2006 for his portrayal of author Truman Capote in Capote.
After Iron Man 3 we’re left with a very different Tony Stark, and me and many others worried that that was the end of the super hero. However it looks as though he’ll be back to lead The Avengers once more, and he could be very likely climbing back into the Iron Man suit.
Iron Man is definitely the most identifiable Marvel super hero, the first Iron Man movie pretty much all of this possible, its success is the reason why we today have The Avengers, Thor and Captain America. However following the events of Iron Man 3 many have been left wondering in what capacity will Tony Stark return in the Avengers sequel. Marvel’s Co-President Louis D’Esposito has revealed that Stark will most definitely be back and be up to his old tricks too! Louis said:
“He’s leading the team with Captain America. I don’t know 100% where he’s at, we’re still developing the screenplay and Joss Whedon is writing furiously to get that finished. But obviously i’ve seen a couple of drafts. It’s hard for me to say at this point what (Tony) is doing and what his emotional mind set is. You can see where it was where we left him at the end of (Iron Man) 3 – he’s in love with Pepper, he’s made a grand gesture to blow up the suits at that point. But at the end, he can’t help himself and i think he will go back to tinkering – thats what he does best.”
Since the villain was revealed as being the robotic Avenger nemesis Ultron there has been plenty of speculation as to his origins – popularly believed to be a creation of Tony Stark, but will it be linked to his AI Jarvis?
“Obviously, we’re big in connectivity. You can see it in all our films. We try to keep that going. It’s one big Marvel cinematic universe and there will be some connectivity.”
Exciting stuff, but it looks as though we’ll have to see how it all pans out. But at least we know that Tony Stark will be back and playing a major role. After all, he is Iron Man.
Looking to get the new Xbox One? Yep. Wouldn’t you like a white variant? Yehuh!! Well you can’t, unless you work for Microsoft that is.
The image above is taken from Reddit and shows a white version of the upcoming gaming console, which will be freely handed out to employees working in Microsoft’s IEB (Internet Entertainment Business) division, the one responsible for the Xbox.
It also includes an engraving that reads “I MADE THIS”. In addition, owners will get one year of Xbox Live subscription and a bunch of free games. This is not the first time Microsoft has given free stuff to employees. In July 2010, for example, the company gave a free Windows Phone 7 device to every employee.
Xbox One is scheduled for a November 2013 release; there’s no word on whether the white edition will eventually become available to everyone.
